Wake Up, Bronco Nation: Jeremy McNichols Balance; WTN no. 6 seed; Swimming & Diving signee

Why did the sailboat start doing drugs? Pier pressure. Jeremy McNichols: Well-rounded At least, that’s according to math. And math is great. SEE?! EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE THAT JEREMY MCNICHOLS IS AWESOME! And while I don’t think he will be a first round pick. He could be a pretty good steal at the second? Or third? Anyway, I am just telling whoever is listening that this...

Wake Up, Bronco Nation: Men’s golf gets third; Brian Humphreys wins; WTN wins; Softball loses

Why were the dark ages called the dark ages? Because there were so many knights. Bronco men’s golf gets third at the MWC Championships But Brian Humphreys walks away with the individual title. The team only fell to UNLV by two strokes. In what was a hotly contested tournament throughout. Mr. Humphreys has been lighting up scene, as a true freshman, all year. And this tournament...

Wake up, Bronco Nation! BSU Softball, Tennis come up short; McNichols undrafted?

This is my first foray into WUBN, so bear with me. I’ve also been on a bit of a hiatus with a new small person in my house. Let’s get to it. Softball drops a rough one to SDSU BSU softball lost to the Aztecs today 14-0 in 5 innings. Yikes. Fortunately the series is tied and they have a chance to win it tomorrow at Dona Larsen Park. Tennis loses to Utah State Men’s tennis...

Chargers Draft Profile: Boise St. RB Jeremy McNichols

The FBS leader in touchdowns over the past two seasons, could be in play for the Chargers next week. The term “undersized” can be misleading when it comes to evaluating NFL talent. Today’s football barometer is heavily weighed upon who is the biggest, the fastest and the strongest at their respected position. Yet every season, it has become more common that a player will breakout...

Bronco hoops land commitment from impressive Texas talent

How about some good news? I know we’re all still feeling the ENTIRE range of emotions about the wrestling/baseball saga, but the news cycle in Bronco Nation must go on and personally I’m welcoming any unambiguously good news. The Broncos received just that sort of news this evening as 6’5” Small Forward from Allen, TX Cameron Christon pledged his services to the Broncos....

Wake Up, Bronco Nation: Boise State women’s golf finishes 9th; McNichols in the fourth round

Did you mean to make that pun? Nope, unintended. Women’s golf finishes ninth at the MWC championships Kind of a bummer since that is last place. But, hey, there are some really good golfers (apparently) in the Mountain West. UNLV finished +4. Pretty big gap between them and Boise State’s +71. Jeremy McNichols in the fourth round of this mock draft That wouldn’t...

Requiem for a team

Boise State’s decision to drop wrestling seems smart, but that doesn’t make it right. Yesterday’s stunning announcement that the Broncos would immediately jettison the wrestling program in favor of men’s baseball was a kick in the gut to some and reason for rejoicing for others. Personally, I went through the entire range of emotions. I’m obviously glad that my alma mater...

Could Broncos find a starting left tackle after the first round?

The Denver Broncos need a left tackle. Is it feasible they will find a rookie starter in this years' draft class? Right now the Denver Broncos have no left tackle on the roster. We have players who could play LT, but none of them has shown an ability to be even a below average LT in the NFL. The roster currently contains four players listed as offensive tackles and one player listed...

Wake Up, Bronco Nation: Boise State to add baseball; Ricedorff no longer with team; NCAA Tournament

Being a locomotive operator is pretty tough. You have to train pretty hard. ICYMI: Boise State takes first step to bring baseball There was a lot of mixed feelings yesterday when this story was broken. The wrestling team was on a good track. New Head Coach Mike Mendoza was recruiting really well and had his athletes competing. The university will still honor scholarships and...

Boise State to drop wrestling to pursue baseball

Boise State wants to align its self with the rest of the Mountain West. Boise State is dropping one program within the school in hopes that the Broncos will have enough funds to replace with another varsity sport. The wrestling program -- which competed in the Pac-12 — is being dropped from Boise State for the possibility that the Broncos will establish a varsity baseball program...

Boise State to drop wrestling, pursue baseball

What has been the goal, and somewhat the dream, for many Boise State-affiliated folks in the valley is to finally bring baseball to Boise State. And not just a club team, but a varsity sport. Today, the school announced just that intention. The Boise State administration has decided to move on from wrestling to bring a full-fledged school-sponsored baseball team. With that, the...

Boise State Game Balls for week of April 9th

Some productive stuff from last week. Let’s go! Game Ball One: Kora Wade (softball) The Broncos could not avoid a series sweep of San Jose State. But they did take the a 2-1 against the UNLV Rebels. And Ms. Wade was a big part of that. Wade had one run, two hits, and one RBI in the 6-1 over UNLV. Congratulations to Wade on being awesome. Game Ball Two: Shani Remme...

Wake Up, Bronco Nation: Boise State women’s golf; Doug Martin; SB Nation preview

The other night I made a belt out of watches. But it turned out it was just a waist of time. SB Nation’s Boise State preview is out And, boy, there is sure a lot to unpack here. The Broncos’ ceiling is still pretty high, but it is just a matter of actually meeting those expectations. The Broncos will be favored (or break even in the case of Washington State) in every...

Broncos doing rad stuff in the community Sam Whitney low-key had a great spring He wasn’t mentioned as often as, say, Nawahine or Horton or (my sleeper pick for breakout freshman) Desmond Williams, but coaches definitely had some extremely high praise for the DE once they did finally mention him.

Former Boise State player found not guilty of ear biting

Well, here’s a heck of a conclusion to this story. We wrote last year about ex-Boise State player Derrick Boles, who was kicked off the team for the always vague violation of team rules. As we learned, it was a heck of a violation: Derrick Boles was dismissed from the Boise State football team in February, for what the university referred to as a “violation of team rules....

The Myth of Boise State Runner Allie Ostrander is Growing

Ms. Ostrander has already etched her name in Bronco lore. But just how far can she go? The following is a parody interview and in no way a real interaction between Boise State Track & Field HC Coach Corey Ihmels and a reporter. (Though, let us be honest, it is probably more accurate at this point than not.) Reporter: “So Allie Ostrander and the steeplechase.” Coach Ihmels...

OBNUG Roundtable: Spring Camp recap

Spring is here. You know this because spring camp is over? Yeah, I guess that's right—Boise State spring camp has come and gone and with it, any hopes of watching live football for the next few months. So let's dig the last tasty morsels out of spring ball that we can to prepare for the long football-less winter (that incidentally happens to be spring and summer). Which player...

Broncos lose Ogbebor

It was a pretty big coup when the Broncos secured the services of wideout Bubba Ogbebor in the class of 2016. In fact, the Broncos effectively passed on other talented wideouts who were ready commit so they could have a chance of landing the talented Texas wideout. Indeed, Ogbebor was one of a handful of true freshman to play in 2016 and it looked like with Thomas Sperbeck graduating...
