It’s a fast turnaround for Purdue this week. There’s not much time to reflect on the Louisville loss as The Ohio Bobcats come to town for the 8th time this Friday night.

The Ohio University will be a challenging team, as they are one of the favorites to win their MAC division and return to the MAC Championship Game for a second straight season.

I think we will learn a lot about this team and the Brohm Squad on Friday. How does Brohm challenge this squad after a heartbreaking loss on Saturday night? Does he get them to take that momentum and come out on fire this week, or do they come out flat? I think it will be the former, but Brohm needs to use this game as a chance to show that they’ve improved, and that we’re not here for moral victories.

Let’s play football.
