This shows that you can do what you can do and it shows you what you can not do when you lose to eastern Michigan. “

“When we decided to open this case and stay on the attack and be more aggressive, our guys have done a good job,” Brohm said on Monday. “It will not always be perfect, but I think David has played outstanding.”
Boilermakers Defense has also made its role.
