Taylor Tharpe replaces

Blake Baker director of player personnel. He has spent the last couple of season as a graduate assistant at Texas. Yet another former Bronco added to our ranks. Looks like he spent some time in...

So where are we with the QB Search

Great article about Kaaya's visit to Boise last weekend and other prospective QB's. There is also a list of QBs who have interest in Boise who would be great to go after including our likely...

Crap lost another one

Looks like we are going to lose Brandon Lewis to Washington. Doesn't specifically state that is where he is going but it is the only school that offered him that would make sense. At this point...

SEC title streak and pride shot tonight

Yup, a team from the ACC conference ended the SEC's streak (and bragging rights). Florida State beat Auburn 34-31. Congrats to the Seminoles for finally getting the job done. Sad thing is that...

Okay it's off topic but

I'm really proud of these guys. UCF just took out Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl. I know that they had an automatic bid this year, but UCF has fought and clawed it's way to where they are today (very...

Not a big surprise but a little more confirmation

Looks like Bob Gregory and Robert Prince won't be coaching at Boise State next season. As mentioned, not really surprised by this but it does seem that other than Huff and Avalos, none of the...

MWC off to a good start in bowl games. . .minus Fresno State embarrassing the conference again

SDSU destroyed Buffalo in the Potato Bowl and Colorado State shocked Washington State late in the New Mexico Bowl. One might comment that the opponents weren't really that great but then again...

Proof that the yards stat needs to disappear

I guess I might be alone on this one but to me this was the final straw. While having a look at the list of best bowl performers this season, and what do I find? Two Fresno State players on the...

Looks like we have another breather

According to this, Oregon already has their replacement lined up for Kelly, and it isn't coach Pete. Not sure if it is perpetual rumors or past history, or just Oregon fans pulling an Ace Ventura...

MWC Coaches departing en-masse

Holy crap, first Anderson and McIntyre (incoming Utah State and San Jose State programs) and now this. Nevada's coach Ault is retiring after 28 years. I understand a number of assistants are...

Holy crap, if the MWC is trying to establish itself as the best conference out of the group of five, it is sending the WRONG MESSAGE!!!!!!!!!!!! A team that had the bare minimum number of wins to...

Wow, Boise trying to pull a BYU

Not independence but they are trying to retain their own rights to their home games and seeing which conference will allow it. My guess is that the odds are better with the BE since the MWC's...

MWC Contract worth as little as $400K per year?

Obviously this could be a typo (maybe he meant $800K per year), either way it is a joke with no room for growth and development for our program. They claim that they are restructuring the contract...

Big East hires Chris Bevilacqu

Apparently the guy is a pretty shrewd businessman who knows his way around scheduling. Added to the smart hire of the current CBS Sports VP for commish and things are starting to look up.

Potential WAC Big Sky Merger

3

We might have another oly sports possibility. Big Sky Commish Fullerton has been quoted as saying that the WAC and Big Sky may merge (giving an extra tourney bid to the conference and boosted cashflow). My apologies for the crappy website link but it's the first I have heard of this. Could be a much better deal than the Big West if it pans out.

BCS denies MWC AQ

That puts an end to any short term gains we might have in the MWC.

Looks like they have a new sponsor going forward. Still the same Big East versus ACC match-up though.

I think this sums up how most of us feel about the new mountain west and why we want to move on.
