The first week of fall camp is closing out for much of the country in college football and on Saturday, Purdue had its first scrimmage.
The scrimmage itself was closed off to the public. We don’t know what happened.
However, Purdue coach Jeff Brohm did talk about the scrimmage and had this to say:

"I think our defense did some really good things early. Offensively, I don’t think it was a very good day for us."https://t.co/dbWZvW5RlM via @JCOnline

To what may come as a surprise to some, Brohm said that the defense did some really good things. It was the offense that struggled.
When we think of Purdue and Brohm, we often think offense. Offense, offense and more offense. We think WR Rondale Moore. Moore is one of the most electrifying players in college football.
But again, Brohm made it a point to mention that the defense showed up. Not the offense.
Is this a telling of what’s to come in 2019 for Purdue? Could the defense be not getting enough love and the offense be off to a bit of a shaky start?
We’ll find out on Aug. 30 when the Boilermakers travel to take on Nevada.
