This is not the kind of news fans in the B1G and fans of Purdue want to be hearing right now. We’re less than a week away from the Boilermakers opening against Iowa.
Now, with under a week before taking the field against the Hawkeyes, the man running the program has tested positive for coronavirus.
Hopefully, Brohm is able to recover as quickly as possible because the Boilermakers are 100% going to need him if they want to win.
Without Brohm calling the shots, it might be a long game against Iowa.
Let’s all hope Brohm bounces back quickly.
