Purdue just Purdue’d which means college football is officially back in full swing! Remember when Purdue fans deemed Jeff Brohm the next Bear Bryant??? Follows up a historical Bowl beatdown with a loss to Nevada to open their “B1G Championship” season. My brother-in-law is a huge Purdue fan and season ticket holder and fully expected a 10-0 start and possible undefeated season...ouch.

Don’t get too cocky. They started 0-3 last year and we started 3-0. Look who went bowling. They do play in the JV league to be fair but still....

Start 10-0?!? And people on here that think IUFB can win 7 games are delusional, sure...

Not getting cocky but being around Purdue fans daily and having them talk about Brohm being the greatest coach to walk the sidelines and ALL the momentum they had coming into this season and for them to open the season like this is too funny. Never have I seen such high expectations for a team that finished 6-7 and lost their starting QB, 2 of their 3 starting WR, and entire backfield...Rondale Moore is literally their entire team.

IU football is expected to stink. None of our fans have expectations of winning 10 games, the division, and going to a New Years bowl.

Plus we didn’t pay our coach $40 mil after going 13-13 his first two seasons.

We can relish in this Purdue flop regardless of what happens to IU

If Purdue can make that kind of investment in football it makes IU look terrible in comparison. They still run the program on the cheap.

You know how much you’d be whining like an entitled brat if we had the results that Purdue has had for the money they paid Brohm?

Get outta here.

Brohm took over a program that had went 1-11, 3-9, 2-10, and 3-9 over the four previous seasons and took them to back to back bowl games. Allen took over a program that had went to back to back bowl games and has missed a bowl the past two years. We can bemoan the fact we're in the harder division, but we don't beat the West teams we play either.

Literally a completely different conversation but okay.

No it's not, at all. Brohm took over a program that was a complete disaster. He instantly turned them around. You said that Gradman would "be whining like an entitled brat" if we had the results Purdue has had for what they're paying Brohm. Brohm has won 3x as many Big 10 games in 2 years as Purdue did the 4 years before him. They're paying him a lot and they've gotten their money's worth. He turned them around immediately and has them on the upswing. They blew out Ohio State last season. That's almost worth the money by itself.

Well considering they extended him after last season it is yet to be seen if they have “gotten their money’s worth”

 

He has coached one game under this new contract.....and he lost

NW just called a QB draw on 3rd and 14 at midfield with 3:30 left and down to Stanford by 3. I’m trying to think of a more blatant example of a Coach telling a QB “you suck” that I’ve seen lately than that. Not saying I disagree. Hunter Johnson has been godawful. Seems to have no idea what he’s looking at.
