Dan Hawkins to UC Davis?

1

The Sacramento Bee advocates for Hawkins, a UC Davis alum, to take over for Bob Biggs, who is stepping down at the end of the season.

"Don't get me wrong, Kellen Moore is a great quarterback," Colorado State University safety Ivory Herd said. "But we're a lot better than that. We shouldn't let something like that happen." Really?

When Boise State football coach Chris Petersen learned of the death of Cosumnes Oaks junior varsity player Jurrell Davis last week from an asthma attack, he called varsity head coach Scooter Gomes. "That's his character," Gomes said. The Cosumnes Oaks marching band formed a 26 in honor of Davis' jersey in a moving pregame tribute.

Laughrea MVP of All-Star game

1

Jimmy Laughrea excelled with his arm, legs and poise in his farewell high school football appearance. A few photographs from the game can be found here.

Laughrea to play in 55th annual Optimist All-Star Football Game on Saturday

3

Article from today's Sacramento Bee: "I told him Kellen Moore was a wing-T quarterback in high school," Stark said of Boise State's senior quarterback, the All-American and Heisman Trophy candidate Laughrea might one day follow as the starter. Laughrea, who will red-shirt at Boise State next fall, finds it amusing. He loves having the chance to play in the game that he is using as preparation before heading to Idaho on Sunday. He was pleased that Boise State coach Chris Petersen gave him permission to play with the caveat "to just be smart."

Hamdan & Avalos hired by Sacramento State

Bush Hamdan, an offensive assistant at Maryland last season, will coach the tight ends. Andy Avalos, who has coached at Colorado and Nebraska Kearney, is the new linebackers coach.

Petersen's loyalty to Boise State endures

4

Article in this morning's Sacramento Bee. Liked this part: "Petersen likes Idaho even if half the Internet media world can't understand why. He relishes the challenges in elevating his program, appreciates how his players, simple and modest like he is, enjoy jumping into the nearby Boise River after summer sessions. He doesn't even mind dealing with frost-covered windshields this week." Although I did have a frost-covered windshield yesterday here in Sacramento, so its really a wash.

The Boise State Hosing

3

"Beyond the mere facts of this season, there was a reason the team was ranked so high at the start and given so much credit and respect. Everyone was back except for star corner Kyle Wilson from a team that went 14-0 in 2009, beat TCU in the Fiesta Bowl, and is now 34-1 going back to the end of 2007. This team has done everything it was supposed to. It has done everything expected. It has matched expectations each and every week, even with America waiting for the slightest slip of any kind, and by that, a 37-27 win would qualify. And yet, TCU is going to play for the national title if Oregon or Auburn slip, and Boise State won’t." Pete Fiutak's Cavalcade of Whimsy

"We had more reaction out of our entire team and coaching staff because he (Kellen Moore) actually ran once in practice," Coach Petersen said. "I ran out there and tried to chest-bump him and almost fell on my face because he ran by me. That’s how excited I was."

Moore pads his rushing stats! Kellen Moore does have some wheels, as shown in last night's victory over Toledo.

To suspend or not to suspend

Bronco Stadium "possibly louder than Autzen"

13

"Only one player on the current roster -- tight end John Reese -- was on the team in 2006 when OSU jumped out to a 14-0 lead before being throttled 42-14. Reese said he remember Bronco Stadium being LOUD -- possibly louder than Autzen -- and that he thought that game was the beginning of former BSU running back Ian Johnson's terrific career." Let's hope its just as loud in 2010.

After defeating Cal, Wolfpack want Boise

12

After Colin Kaepernick and the Nevada offense shredded the Cal defense, after the Wolf Pack doused coach Chris Ault with a Gatorade shower, after Marlon Johnson’s game-changing interception that he returned for a touchdown, the Mackay Stadium sellout crowd of 28,809 fans rushed the field and started chanting. "WE WANT BOI-SE! WE WANT BOI-SE!" Get the Bronco Caravan warmed up!

More on QB commit Laughrea's concussion

4

Apparently this is his second concussion since playing high school football. "The hit happened early in Friday's game between the Rocklin High School Thunder and the Oak Ridge High School Trojans. Jimmy Laughrea, Rocklin's quarterback, tried to shrug off the blow. But he began forgetting plays, calling one in the huddle but running another at the line of scrimmage. He had no memory of the touchdown he threw in the fourth quarter that put the Thunder back in the game. Soon after, the 6-foot-2 senior was hunched behind the bench, vomiting into a trash can. A referee made the call: possible concussion. Laughrea was pulled from the game."

I think Matt Zemek asks some legit questions. "That aside, however, I’d wish that we – as a nation of football fans – could start to truly explain our positions. We all know what the positions are, but we don’t have a deeper understanding of what they really look like at their most granular and molecular levels. Let’s flesh out the well-known positions so that we can have a debate worthy of this great sport’s national championship chase."

WAC Offseason Lookback & Lookaheads

Boise State There’s loaded, and then there’s what Boise State has coming back. All-star, NFL-caliber corner Kyle Wilson is gone, but everyone else on the defensive two-deep is back … EVERYONE. QB Kellen Moore is back to lead an offense that gets all 11 starters back and ten of the second-teamers, placekicker/punter Kyle Brotzman is back, and the recruiting class is just good enough to provide a bit more help. Just hand the Broncos the WAC title right now.

Picking Boise like a hit from blind side

8

"For people of earlier generations, the choice of the Broncos over the Fighting Irish is so startling as to approach blasphemy. But when you are a teenager, someone born after the Fighting Irish last won a national championship in 1988 and living in the here and now with a revolving door on the head coach's office, maybe it isn't that much of a stretch." Ferd Lewis, Honolulu Advertiser sports columnist, on Jeremy Ioane picking the Broncos.
