It is understandable that fans in Louisville are disappointed, but it seems that we have gone too far.
After two successful seasons at Purdue, the Cardinals attempted to lure Jeff Brohm into his country after Bobby Petrino's dismissal.
Except that Brohm chose to stay with the boilermakers.
And Wednesday night, his former high school in Kentucky announced it was closed the next day, so as not to cry that Brohm did not return home. Because of a threat to the school.
"Trinity officials have been informed by the police of a threat against the school because of Jeff Brohm's decision to stay in Purdue," reads on the school's website. .
Classes are canceled on Thursday, November 29th. Https://t.co/NN4FxJ31Se

As for Brohm, he has won 13 games in two seasons at Purdue and the Boilermakers are heading to a bowl for a second year in a row. This season included a 49-20 win over the Ohio State, which could prevent the Buckeyes from participating in the playoffs.
"I think it's important to complete the construction process that we started and to respect the commitment I've made to our football program, the players and the rookies," he said. Brohm in a statement released Wednesday. "While going home was very appealing and meaningful to me, the timing was not ideal, I believe that staying in Purdue is the right thing to do and I am excited about the challenges ahead."
So, over the last 6 weeks, Jeff Brohm has beaten number 2 OhioState by 29, number 19 Iowa ET has just turned down his former dream job / alma mater to stay in Purdue. Must be really great to be a Boilers fan right now.

Jeff Brohm stays at Purdue because he has the honor, the loyalty and that he does not need to go anywhere else – not to Louisville this year, nor to Tennessee last year – to win big. Http: // t .co / DIgvrlcqMm
