Been a Bronco fan since I was little, still remember getting a H-Bowl shirt from the BSU vs. UTEP H-bowl. I'd say the two biggest Bronco watching moments since then, at least moments that stick out to me as "whoa we're gonna be good moments" happed seeing BSU beat TCU in the Fort Worth Bowl on TV and then attending Fiesta Bowl 1 years later sitting in the corner where all the game ending magic happened. Still working on getting alumni status but I'm a Bronco for life!

Long Gap in Games Allows Drmic to Heal Up

+

Scheduling really nipped the team in the heels, especially in road contests. I'm still excusing them for ever single one of those road games and if you don't agree with that then lets talk. The Broncos have had a long deserved break and according to Murph it's proven to be a great benefit.

LIVE ONLINE CHAT W/ LEON RICE TUESDAY 10:30AM!

This is freaking awesome! I think we should get a list together of good questions, fellow nuggies can offer insight and we can fine tune them and followup after the chat for those who have to work or can't participate. I love how much Coach rice puts himself in the media.

CBS This Morning goes to bat for BSU and calls BCS "the great lie."

Wish I could embed the video but you'll just have to check out the link. This is a GREAT watch. We've had a lot of writers bringing out their torches and pitchforks to rally against the BCS and this is on par with the best of those articles except this is CBS video. Freaking awesome stuff and I love how front and center they put Boise State and the injustice of our position the past couple years.

Hometown News Article on Demarcus Lawrence

Notable comments: "I've been looking at them," said Lawrence. "They had a nice quarterback, Kellen Moore, who was really good. They have the blue turf, which is pretty nice, and they're supposed to be building some new facilities. It's going to be pretty nice." "Everybody likes to be part of a winning team. I'm a winner, so I had to be part of a winning team." "I picked Boise because I had a better vibe with the players and the coaches. I felt more comfortable up there. I liked Tennessee because it's close to home and in the SEC, but I picked Boise because Tennessee had too many players at my position." "I'm quick off the edge and have pass rushing skills," he said of his strengths." "I would like to be a part of the NFL one day, but if I can't make it to the NFL, Boise will help me get my degree," he said. "That's what's important. (Being at Butler) made me grow up a lot. It had me think about what I really needed to do to be successful."

Boise State was a tough test for Iowa

1

The game was tied at 57 with seven minutes left but Iowa grinded it out. A good game recap from the Chicago Trib: IOWA CITY, Iowa— Iowa flew through the first six weeks of the season without a tight game. The Hawkeyes finally got a late-game test -- and passed -- less than a week before the start of Big Ten play. None of Iowa's first 12 games were closer than 10 points, but the Hawkeyes needed some big plays in the final minutes to beat Boise State 81-72 Thursday night. Devyn Marble and Aaron White each scored 18 points to lead Iowa. "The reality is that's sort of exactly what we needed," Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. "We needed a test tonight. We needed somebody to come in here, you hit them, they hit you back, you hit them, they hit you back. "That's what our league is night in and night out. We had to gut one out." Melsahn Basabe had 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Hawkeyes (8-5), who ended their nonconference slate with three straight wins. Kenny Buckner led the Broncos (9-4) with 18 points on 9 of 12 shooting. This was a tight game with 14 lead changes and 11 ties, including 57-57 after Boise State's Thomas Bropleh hit a 3-pointer with 7 minutes left. But Iowa scored the next eight points during the next two minutes -- capped off by a transition layup by Matt Gatens. Basabe blocked a shot by pinning the ball off the backboard to start that break. The Hawkeyes used that spark to complete a 15-6 run and put them up eight points with about three minutes left. "After the block, I think we had them," Basabe said. The reserve freshman White reached double figures for the third straight game. He entered early after starter Zach McCabe picked up his second foul in less than four minutes. White immediately scored 10 of Iowa's next 11 points during a back-and-forth stretch. Matt Gatens scored 16 points for Iowa, which had 14 assists on 26 field goals and only five turnovers. Anthony Drmic -- Boise State's top scorer at 14 points per game -- did not play. The freshman sprained an ankle Monday night against Fresno State. The Broncos were also without guard Igor Hadziomerovic, who broke his foot in practice last week. Derrick Marks scored 17 points off the bench for Boise State, which slowed down the tempo to help shore up the loss of the two guards. "In some ways, that probably helped us to be more under control," Boise State coach Leon Rice said. "We didn't turn the ball over very much. We ended up grinding the shot clock more than we're used to." Earlier this week, McCaffery said playing Boise State would be like going up against a Big Ten team. He'll find out soon how that will really look. The Hawkeyes open Big Ten play against Purdue at home on Wednesday. "I think we grew up a little bit," McCaffery said. "We're obviously playing better at both ends of the floor."

Kellen for Mayor

9

Pretty funny quote from an excellent article by Ivan: If popularity accounts for anything, he [Kellen] could run for mayor of Boise. "I wouldn't want to think about that," David H. Bieter, the current mayor, said with a chuckle. Bieter, a Boise native and a Bronco fan for nearly his entire life, was re-elected last month to his third term. "I've got four years to at least get ready. I wouldn't want to follow him, that's for sure. The mayor before me went to jail. You always want to come after somebody like that." I like Bieter and his uncanny love for trolleys, funny to get a quote like this.

Navy will join BE, only a matter of time

19

Based on the quotes from Navy in this article by Brett mcmurphy they're excited to have this opportunity and want to get it done. As has been explained, they've got a lot of stuff they have to wrap up to end their independence and join but it sure sounds like they're planning on it happening. Navy AD, Chet Gladchuk also said that Air Force's decision to remain in the Mountain West and not join the Big East has absolutely no impact on Navy and that they see major stability in the Big East. This bodes well for the future of our new conference and for getting another western partner on board (Air Force). Good article though, you can tell Navy's AD is excited about this move.

Great local media write-up on future Bronco TE Armand Nance. He's been sporting Boise State Pro-Combat Gloves during High School Playoffs. Hadn't read anythign personal about him so I thought I'd share. Good luck to Armand and his Dekaney High School squad this weekend as they play in their division state championship. Article text below: ROUND ROCK -- The Dekaney High seniors were freshmen in 2008 when the Wildcats fielded their inaugural varsity football team in just the school’s second year. Dekaney lost all of their varsity games that season, but the freshman class had high hopes for the future. Dekaney senior tight end/defensive end Armand Nance has overcome obstacles throughout his career. He moved to Houston in sixth grade from his hometown of New Orleans -- just days before Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005. Nance made new friends in Spring and overcame an injury as a freshman to become a three-year starter for the Wildcats. “We grew up with each other, so we’ve always been competitive,” Nance said. “We’ve always been strong and fast. We stayed together, and now we’re here. I dreamed about (going to state) and it’s coming true.” Nance, a Boise State commit, has played a key role in the Wildcats’ success. The Wildcats (13-2) are headed to the UIL Class 5A, Division II State Championship Game at 8 p.m. Saturday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington against defending 5A-II champion, Cibolo Steele (15-0). “Armand is a leader and one of our captains,” Dekaney head coach Willie Amendola said. “He’s a warrior, and he plays both sides of the ball for us. We’re really proud of (him).” Dekaney narrowly missed the playoffs in 2009 and 2010, but they’ve dominated the 2011 playoffs, including last Saturday’s 56-19 state semifinal victory over Mansfield Timberview. Nance is one of the few Class 5A players to start on both sides of the ball. “I appreciate my coaches,” Nance said. “They help me train and get me through conditioning, so I can do it.” After the Timberview victory, Nance proudly sported a Boise State hat, along with the BSU gloves he wore during the game. He plans on playing tight end for the Broncos, who have also received verbal commitments from area running backs Devan Demas (Cypress Creek) and Shane Rhodes (Klein Collins) and linebacker Ben Weaver (Klein). The 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior said Rhodes will be his roommate during his freshman year in Boise. Nance said he’ll miss his mother, but he’s excited about the opportunity to play for BSU, which recently joined the Big East Conference for football. That means the Broncos will likely visit fellow Big East member, Houston, which has received a commitment from Dekaney senior defensive back Jarrett Irving. It’s possible that Boise could meet current teammate, Trey Williams, in a Bowl Championship Series game. Williams is verbally committed to Texas A&M. “You can’t stop him,” Nance said. “You get a little seam for him, and he’s gone.” For one more game, Nance and his teammates will be dedicated to finish what they started. “District 13-5A is the strongest district in Texas,” Nance said. “But next week, we’ll have to prove it for sure.”

"The visit to Boise was real nice, I enjoyed my time there, I think the two things that stood out most to me were Coach Pete [Chris Petersen] and the players on the team. It seemed like a big family there, and that’s what I’m looking for. When you get there and see how tight-knit everyone is and how they do things at Boise, you can understand how they win so much" ~Offensive lineman Steven Moore (Elk Grove, Calif.)

BSU: Favorite to Win BE for First 6 Seasons

4

Good read on the new Big East teams from UCF perspective. And so a nation laughs. There is widespread scoffing when it comes to the destinations, and for that matter, the desperation. Now that it is done, however, you have to concede this: This could be fairly interesting. You have Boise, the Cinderella team that keeps embarrassing bigger programs. You have SMU, the Lazarus team. You have Houston, which matters again. You have San Diego State, which is near a pretty good zoo. Also, there is UCF, which should make things fun. So who are these guys? You know a few things about Boise State, of course. One is the Smurf Turf, that Windex blue field the Broncos play on. Another is that quarterback Kellen Moore has played there for it seems 134 straight seasons. A third is that as of right flipping now, Boise State is the favorite to win the Big East for the next six seasons.
