After the scrimmage, Brohm spoke with Inside

ITV:  What are your thoughts on today's practice?

Brian Brohm:  It looked like a nice practice and looked like everything was well organized.  There was a lot of energy and the coaches were getting on people today and (there) was a lot more energy than probably last year.

ITV:  You spoke with Coach Petrino during the scrimmage, what did you talk about? 

Brian Brohm: We just talked about what plays were getting ready to be run and just talked about the offense.

& Brian Brohm

ITV:  You spent time talking with Michael Bush.  Anything interesting?

Brian Brohm:  We didn't talk about much, just talked with an Mike know each other pretty well.  We just talked about normal things.

ITV:  What do you think about Coach Petrino's offense?

Brian Brohm:  It looks like a good offense, like the one they ran here with Redman and it looks like they're bringing that back and he learned some from the pros and it a good offense.

ITV:  Talk about your recruitment.  Any leaders emerging yet?

Brian Brohm:  Not yet.  Probably Louisville and Kentucky are definitely up there.  Notre Dame, Tennessee and another ones probably Georgia.  That's my top five right now.

ITV:  What will be the most important factor in your decision?

Brian Brohm:  Probably the most important factor is you've got to know the coaches well and hopefully where I'll be able to fit in and play and have a chance to be myself.

ITV:  What does it mean to have your older brother Jeff coaching the quarterbacks at UofL?

Brian Brohm:  You know that's a big plus.  I know him well as a coach and as a person and you want to know all your coaches well.  So that's a huge plus.
