I saw this yesterday on my drive home.

Last weekend, Coach Brohm held his team scrimmage. If you have read anything, he said the offense was underwhelming and the defense was pretty solid. It isn’t time to sound the alarm by any means here.

A lot of the times, defenses are way ahead of offenses at this time. But, with Coach Brohm, I feel safe in saying the offense will get up to speed.

But, what Tom tweeted out yesterday is interesting. This came from the first practice after the scrimmage. Generally starting line ups are starting to shake out, as the first game is less than 2 weeks away.

There are a couple of surprises that ran with the ones here. These being Anthony Mahoungou and Jackson Anthrop. For one, I really thought that Zico would come in and secure a starting spot, that isn’t to say he still can’t, but he hasn’t grabbed it yet.

Another, Corey Holmes is with the 2’s. He just recently got here, but his speed will get him on the field. Where is Terry Wright? Our other JuCo transfer seems to be nursing a shoulder injury that nagged him last season as well. If he is not healthy, he could be headed to a redshirt I would suppose.

What sticks out here is Jackson Anthrop. Coach Brohm has praised him many times for his hard work and attention to detail. Things some of the stay overs from the last staff lacked these qualities. Jackson would appear to be a slot guy, similar to how Danny was. I love the move of having Jackson there. I would guess he and Catlett are the top dogs there.

Mahoungou surprises me here. I read over the summer that he lacks some athletic ability. But, his big frame of 6’3”, 220 pounds, probably appeals to Coach Brohm. He is a senior now and we need him to make plays, along with Phillips, who is a captain as well.

Now, nothing is in cement, but with less than two weeks to go before our show down at Lucas Oil against Louisville, you would think Coach is starting to come to grips with who he wants where.

Now, we just need QB1 David Blough to get healthy. I am ready for the season. Boiler Up.
