In case you’ve missed the last couple of seasons, Purdue’s offense is ridiculously fun now thanks to new head coach Jeff Brohm. The Boilermakers averaged 403.1 yards per game in Brohm’s first season at the helm, an improvement of 11.8 yards from 2016.
Purdue hosted its televised Spring Game on Saturday, and Brohm broke out the trickeration on the very first play.
The play starts with a swing pass out to the wideout on the shallow curve, then he pitches it to the running back who is running free in the flat. Since the defense wasn’t ready for the pitch, the tailback is able to easily pick up the first down.
If this is the kind of offensive play calling we’re going to see from the Boilermakers in 2018, then they’re going to be extremely entertaining.
