Brohm ready to show off new offense

Senior quarterback has worked well with the Cardinals new offense this spring

Things could have been so much different for Brian Brohm this spring had he made the decision to leave for the National Football League a year early instead of returning to the University of Louisville for his senior season. The Louisville Trinity product chose to give it the old college try one more time and in doing so would have to learn and adjust to a new head coach and his offense.

How's he done? The Heisman candidate has turned in his best spring as a Cardinal. He was near flawless in the team's first scrimmage, throwing for 207 yards and a touchdown, and looked just as impressive in their second scrimmage last Saturday.

Brohm and his fellow offensive teammates appear to have grasped the newly formed Cardinal offense quickly and it should perform well once again in Friday night's spring game.

"We‘ve accomplished a lot of things." said Brohm. "Everyone is starting to understand the offense, getting a rhythm and getting a feel of things. We're not having very many assignment errors. We have a lot of the offense down and we're ready to go."

While he quickly became comfortable with Charlie Stubbs offense, Brohm realizes that there remains room for improvement and that it will continue on with time.

"You can always get better, but right now I feel that I have a good understanding of the offense and for what we are trying to accomplish," Brohm said. "I'm starting to get into a rhythm with Coach Stubbs calling the plays during the scrimmages, plus he's starting to get a feel for what plays I like as well."

For the majority that haven't had an opportunity to see the new Louisville offense prior to Friday night‘s spring game, Brohm says that they can expect to see much of what they have become accustomed to - exciting play and a lot of points.

"Hopefully we can go out there and put on a show," Brohm said. "Hopefully we can put up some points and a lot of numbers. We just need to go out there and have fun. I think the fans will see that we have a lot of energy in this offense and that we are ready to go out and perform."
