GOLD AND BLACK ILLUSTRATED VOLUME 27, ISSUE 6 7 Markus Bailey Boiler Index: Smoking Co-defensive coordinator Nick Holt says Bailey, a sophomore linebacker, could develop into one of the best he's ever coached. And that's high praise from a coach with stops at USC and Washington in his 20-plus years on the sidelines. Bailey has all the attributes, athleticism, smarts, physicality, and is gaining valuable experience. Jeff Brohm Boiler Index: Steaming Brohm has been a man about town for most of the spring, trying to drum up support for the Boilermakers in his first season as Purdue's head coach. He's doing that, while also trying to rebuild the roster as quickly as possible. All has made it a time- consuming last half a year. Devynne Charlton Boiler Index: Smoldering Few Purdue track athletes are as decorated as Charlton, Purdue's female Athlete of the Year. The sprinter won five Big Ten titles last season and four All-America honors, including three for first team. An NCAA indoor champion in the 60-meter hurdles, Charlton set five Purdue records in the last year alone. — Kyle Charters Boiler Index Gold and Black Illustrated A publication of Boilers, Inc. 2605 Yeager Road, West Lafayette, IN 47906 765-237-5002 or 1-800-876-GOPU (4678) Fax: 765-497-2110/ President/Publisher Alan Karpick 765-237-5078 Editor Brian Neubert Publications Coordinator Kyle Charters Associate Editor/Football Stacy Clardie Photography/Cover Photo Tom Campbell/Charles Jischke Graphic Designer Gary A.

Photos by Purdue (Charlton); Sandra Dukes (Brohm); Tom Campbell (Bailey) Remember When … One could argue whether it is an apples-to-apples comparison to Coach Jeff Brohm and today, but 20 years ago, Purdue fans were fed up with losing and were desperate for a coach to point the program in a new direction. And they found one in Joe Tiller, pictured here on the fall camp issue in August 1997. Of course, Tiller led the Boilermakers to an amazing 9-3 record, including an Alamo Bowl victory, in what was one of the great turnarounds in the past quarter century of college football. More on the '97 season on Pages 44-47.
