I was born in Texas and am a 4th generation Dallas Cowboys fan. I moved around a lot throughout my life and basically grew up in Central Florida as a Florida State Seminole fan. I was there throughout the first half of the 90's when the Seminoles won a lot and also had a lot of heartbreakers.

I came to the Boise area in late 2003, was slowly exposed to the local Boise St Broncos and, by 2008, had been convinced that Chris Petersen was a great coach. Now it's nearly 2014 and FSU is the national champion favorites, Boise St has nearly single handedly forced a CFB Playoff, and Chris Petersen is finally going to take a shot at coaching in the Bigs with Washington. Although, I'd like to keep him in Boise, I can't say I'm not content with my cfb situations right now.

Old Pete interview

I found this interview of Chris Petersen that was done back in '07 or '08. It's an interview from a site that caters to football coaches so there's a lot of great Q&A concerning Chris Petersen's development as a coach from childhood to when he took over at BSU. This is a quality article that gives you a snapshot of Pete's thoughts from several years back and also shows his foundational beliefs, which remain the same today, as it pertains to coaching football.

2013 Boise St. Roster Review: Video, Pt. 1 of 10

1985 Bears D vs. 2012 Bears D

2012 MAACO Las Vegas Bowl

Seems to be the full game uploaded in 720p. This will make for a terrific resource over the offseason, allowing us to analyze different position groups for both teams. I am particularly interested in both OLs and DLs, as well as the Husky receivers and our reserve LB'ers/DB's.

Next Generation BCS Busters

Read between the lines; Sports Illustrated, probably easily the national leader in sports editorials, is basically considering it FACTUAL that Boise St. is too good and too big to be considered a Mid-Major or BCS Buster anymore. One more sign of the rise of a program of excellence. It takes years of consistency to raise public perception from one category to the next. Congrats, BSU, I think it's pretty much official.

Big East Looks For A Big TV Deal Amid Realignment

The Chicago Tribune republished Tom Doyle's in depth article, written on May 26, 2012 for the Connecticut based Hartford Courant, regarding the varying opinions circling the looming Big East TV deal. I just thought this was a very informative piece for anyone that may not be up to speed on what's going to start up in September.

Big East Looks For A Big TV Deal Amid Realignment

The Chicago Tribune republished Tom Doyle's in depth article, written on May 26, 2012 for the Connecticut based Hartford Courant, regarding the varying opinions circling the looming Big East TV deal. Lots of good info here. Two long pages but well worth the read imo to gain a baseline level understanding of what we face.

Draft Profile: Billy Winn

Nice draft analysis for Billy Winn. I've spoken to this guy before, he does a lot of draft analysis and last year he nailed Dallas' first pick before anyone else knew who he was. Article as a whole shows how Boise St. is seriously being looked at like any other elite program. I always get excited about that.

Talent-Rich SEC states are Thin on Elite QB Prospects

Lengthy article but should help to temper any unrealistic expectations about Nick Patti showing up here, dominating Spring Ball, taking the starting job w/o so much as a hint of challenge, and leading us to an undefeated season and BCS Bowl victory next year as a True Frosh. I'm from Florida and this article reads true, speed is word of the day down there, not technique. Nick could come in here and win the job right away, he could even be real good in his first year. But to expect him to pick up where Kellen left off is unrealistic and unfair.

2012 Big East Favorite

Looking way way ahead; as we watch how our team begins to fill the question marks this year, we may also want to keep closer tabs than usual on Louisville. They were very young this year and split the BE lead with WVU. They will be a seasoned bunch of upper classmen hitting on all cylinders by the time we enter the BE. Charlie Strong is the head coach and I've always heard really good things about his ability.

Expansion: More on the Big East's Plans: Boise and Two Leagues, One Umbrella

An interesting concept proposed. Some neat tidbits in the comments section including a link showing that football only schools do not split revenue from games with basketball only schools and a hilariously delusional concept from a USF fan on how USF best fits in the SEC even while he acknowledges the sheer amount of crazy loaded in the idea.
