Honestly, losing a coach before he hits his full potential sucks. Equally true, though: Purdue should feel glad at least that Brohm isn't at Tennessee this season. For a time, they seemed poised to pick Brohm. No doubt that was a disaster of a search that waffled over a monstrous lists of candidates. But still. There's more than one universe in which Brohm never even made it to Purdue Year 2.
Maybe Lou Vull can hire PJ Barnum. Row the Boat and shit.

I would love to see a coach like him stay put at a "lesser program" to see what he can do over time.

Sort of like Hayden Fry and Kirk Ferentz to Iowa? And, Barry Alvarez to Wisconsin?

I would guess Minnesota fans would be appreciative.

I dunno. Lots of them still seem to be buying the snake oil. I'm sure the posters here aren't.

I like him but know you don't. Respect his teaching philosophy. I don't think he's losing because of his style. And believe he'll turn it around to at least the Glen Mason level if they give him 6-10 years.

Last year was year zero (his words). Now he's in 0.1. So you're talking about giving him 60-100 years to turn it around. Sounds doable.

I'm surprised the mantra for this year isn't "Still in beta!"

lots of smoke about Petrino being in some kind of trouble off field on the Louisville message boards. Sounds like that’s where this fake news tweet is coming from. There’s no doubt he’s on thin ice after last season and this season. Maybe the rumors are just wishful thinking on the part of some overzealous fans. Who really knows. 

Brohm is building something at Purdue. I’d hate to see him leave. The conference needs a competitive West. I also think that Louisville is probably the one job he’d bolt for. We can all have our opinions on the city or the school- but the only one that matters is his. And Louisville is home for him. Hard for anyone to turn that down. Like the great Bear Bryant said, when Momma comes calling, you come.

If Brohm and Frost can catch up to UW and Iowa, and UW and Iowa can take another step, I'd be very happy.

I noted preseason that Purdue was one of the teams I was interested in watching this year.  The start was of course rough unless you view close losses as a good sign.

I also was interested in FSU, kind of the reverse situation really.  They surprised me on the downside a bit.

I'm interested in what values and ethical standards Louisville has that Petrino broke.

There are a lot of schools in the ACC with city names.  I can't think off hand of another P5 conference like that.

Boise State of course, not P5.

Rutgers is not a city name.  Clemson is, Laville, Syracuse, Pitt, BC, Miami, Wake Forest (though it's not in Wake Forest any more) ...

From afar I don't feel like Louisville is that much better of a job. Brohm can do more at Purdue. And if he does more at Purdue he will get better offers than Louisville.
