Early Break: Dave Lackford (GoldAndBlack.com/Rivals-Purdue)

  • Dave makes the comparison between Wan’Dale Robinson and Rondale Moore.
  • What kind of player is Nebraska getting in Wan’Dale?
  • Talk about Jeff Brohm and his third season with Purdue
    • and thoughts on him turning down Louisville.

Back to expectations again—if Jeff Brohm could win 7 games in his first year at lowly Purdue, why is 6 the number we say for Scott Frost in year 1 in Lincoln?

  • Everyone mocked Purdue for their terrible recruiting rankings and overall performance under Darrell Hazell — as they very well should have — but here comes Jeff Brohm from Western Kentucky and in year 1 at a place with much less talent and tradition, made them a scary ‘out’ every single game, and a 7 win team
  • In Nebraska’s defense, Purdue in 2017 didn’t have the gauntlet of death of road opponents…is that the only difference, though?
