Broncos Win National Championship -- Again

No, you didn't read that headline incorrectly, and, yes, I know this is a sports blog. But I am proud of my alma mater for once again proving that Boise State University is an institution which is...


What Direction, Idaho?

Today's Idaho Statesman reprinted a March 6 editorial from the Lewiston Tribune. I attempted to read it online, but it is securely ensconced behind a subscription firewall. Therefore, I will...


Football Complex Photos

Several Nuggies have inquired about the progress of the new Bronco Stadium Football Complex and received few, if any, responses. Today I had occasion to dine in the Bronco Zone of the Stueckle Sky...

Yes, I'm shouting. "I know how important the crowd is, and I’m being 100 percent serious. Crowd noise, like I’ve said forever, is very difficult to deal with," said Coach Chris Petersen in an Idaho Statesman interview. "If we can have our people as loud as they’ve ever been, I promise you it will help us." They also want butts in the seats until the very end. Got to get up early Friday morning to go to work? Suck it up, Bronco Nation! "Fans are encouraged to stay through the end of the game and cheer on the home team to show community support for the Broncos. Kickoff time is 7 p.m. in Bronco Stadium."

MSU blog previews the game


FINALLY! Our friends at The Only Colors, MSU's SBN blog, appear to have awakened to the fact that there's a game in East Lansing Friday night, and have posted their perspective on its keys for both teams. Their prediction: Boise State will jump out early, but the Spartans will rebound to prevail 24-17.

2012 Bronco Nation Viewing Parties--throughout the country


The BSU Alumni Association has posted Bronco TV viewing parties for much of the 2012 football season. There may be further additions later on (I really don't know). Check out your locality, then gather the faithful and trek on down to cheer with fellow Broncos.


Fall Scrimmage Photos, Part 2

A few of the shots I took at the 2012 Fall Scrimmage. (I had to split them into two groups, so be sure to look at Part 1 as well.)

All Hail! Kevan, Drew, and Nick

We’re rolling down towards the opening kickoff, and soon posts will be flying like Kellen’s passes. Before the air gets too congested, though, I thought it would be appropriate to pause for a...

Rumor: Mountain West Connection reports Boise State to stay in MWC; story disputed


The reporter is Chris Maathuis of Las Vegas KLAS TV Channel 8. He promises details on the decision, but more than three hours later nothing is posted. Here is the KLAS website:

Isaiah Crowell Dismissed By Georgia Football After Arrest


In case you missed it in the SB Nation sidebar, Crowell, who ran 15 attempts against the Broncos for 60 yards last year, was carrying a concealed handgun (with an altered serial number) under his driver's seat when stopped by the cops. But it's this comment by Dawg Sports Manager T. Kyle King that really caught my eye: "Hopefully, folks read all the way to the end of Seth's article and saw that this was the first arrest of a Georgia football player for a felony in several years." Wow, Kyle. Sounds like you guys are really on a positive roll. First felony arrest in several years! Keep up the good work! UPDATE (If anyone is still watching, since this is off the front page.) Crowell reported to be headed to Alabama State, an FCS school.

Boise State football team cited in Forbes ranking of Boise as #2 best city for raising a family


Boise, Idaho used to be America's best-kept secret, but that was long ago. As both natives and newcomers are well aware, we enjoy the good life here. It's a wonderful place to live, full of nice folks who even display an amazing tolerance of dUI Vandal fans. Forbes Magazine has rated Boise No. 2 in the nation for "Best Cities In Which To Raise A Family." The full story can be viewed by clicking on the title above. And this excerpt: "Life is good for many families in the Pacific Northwest’s third largest city, with lower costs and less crime than the region’s two biggest metros, Seattle and Portland. And there’s the local powerhouse football team, the Boise State Broncos." along with a photo can be found here: Ah, it's good to live in the Big East. Er, West.

Idaho’s "Gruff Luck" 2012 Profile?


SB Nation has this story about the Vandals posted in a right-hand sidebar. Don't read it on a full stomach--wait at least two hours after eating. Idaho is arguably ranked as one of the top 121 FBS teams in the nation. What's that you say? There are only 120 FBS teams? Well, the ranking still stands. I found an apparent error in author Bill Connelly’s final story line, wherein he wrote, "Good luck, Coach Robb P.S. Akey. You're going to need it." I believe he left the "O" out of "Coach Robb P.O.S. Akey."

BSU hater not doing well in Texas race
