Boise State Broncos Cheapest Tickets On Secondary Market For Remainder Of Season This Week Against Virginia

The Boise State Broncos would likely had to have gone undefeated to even get slight consideration for a spot in this year’s College Football Playoff, but a miraculous Hail Mary pass during their game with BYU two weeks ago may have spoiled their chances.

An Ironic weekend for Bronco Nation

There has been a lot of comfortableness within Bronco Nation over whats been going on with the offense, namely QB Finley. While I will always defer to Coach when it comes to this as for one we don’t know what he knows and it’s become clear after last Fridays game coach is a deep strategic thinker. I wonder if he plays chess? First lets address the Irony, Friday night against...

Boise State Broncos Have Best CFP Odds For Teams Outside Power 5 Conferences

It doesn’t mean those odds are strong, however, as the Broncos are currently listed around 175-1 to complete the dream scenario. But the Broncos are poised to make noise, as...

Boise State Looks To Take The Next Step; Eyes College Football Playoff

Some thought transitioning from former coach Chris Petersen would bring troubled times to the Boise State program. Petersen, who built the Boise State football program during his eight-year tenure that included a Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award in 2010, handed the keys to Bryan Harsin, who kept the winning standard going during his first year as head coach. Boise State took home...

The Key to Boise State vs. Arizona Fiesta Bowl

You can spend hours breaking down these two teams. In the end it comes down to just one match up Jay Ajayi vs. Scooby Wright. The Wild Cats Defense over all is not something above average; what appears to bail this team out more times than not is Scooby Wright coming unblock in to the back field where either a turnover or a major loss of yardage is all too often the result.  I’ve...

Bronco Nations Top 10 Grateful List 2014

Throughout my professional life I have long known the value of having a grateful list. You don’t always win in life, but you can find your wins even in defeat and a grateful list something at different points and time I re-write and collect in my attitude folder to help me balance out those up and down swings. Sometime I would write one every week sometimes ever month and occasionally...

My Bowl Prediction

First off I don’t do line prediction I don’t gamble for me it’s all about the straight up winner losers.

I did however review my picks against each teams schedule and stats win loss key players, That all being said I watch just as much College football during a season and in...

Jay Ajayi will he go or will he stay?

  With the announcement yesterday that Jay will decide before the Fiesta Bowl I decided to publish now instead of holding this until after the game. First let’s be clear no one knows what Jay’s goals and aspirations are, nor what standard he’s set for his decision. Clearly if he is rated as a first round pick I would think it’s safe to assume he should move on if being the...

From Provo, to Fort Collins to all points Mid-West one could write a single store that goes something like this. Speculation heated up Sunday about the (insert your school name here) being a prime candidate for Big 12 expansion, after that league was left out of the College Football Playoff. And while every other school to include not just the obvious Marshal, Memphis, Cinncy,...

Mountain West Champs Next Up Arizona in the Fiesta Bowl

It was a game that got away from Fresno in a hurry and by the time Grant Hedrick made his 21 yard TD run in the 3rd making the score 28-0 the only thing left in Fresno was the fight and the Dogs did put up a fight and for that Fresno fans should take some comfort. Next up for Fresno, Rice 7-5 out of C-USA in the Hawaii Bowl; Boise State was given preference over fellow Rice C-USA...

Fresno State’s chances of winning are 1/10^32

Certainly most will tell you anything can happen and of the entire fan bases in America there is one that Hate’s Boise State more than any and that is Fresno States fans. And for good reason we stuck a knife in their 2001 Season on the road when they were ranked 8th and other then last year and 2005 held our foot to their throat. There is nothing like a bunch of wine drinking cheese...

One more on The Blue Turf!

It all started just the way Utah State wanted it then it ended just as quickly. After LaJuan Hunt’s 55 yard first play run. Boise State’s defense put Utah’s offense in reverse collapsing JoJo Naston for a 4 yard loss on the very next play. Utah’s first drive ended 2 plays later with a missed field goal. Leading into the game everyone talked of this being a matchup of the...

Tonight a 8-3 Utah State team comes to Boise to play for it all just days after Boise State became the first ever group of 5 conference team to be ranked in the new CFP committee poll ranked ahead of a at that time undefeated Marshall.

CFP Ranking Boise State #23 gives clear path to New Year’s Bowl.

Harsin Bronco’s can do something no Bronco team has done before play in a Major Bowl with a loss on their record. In 2010 we took our medicine with a single loss to Nevada accepting our fate to the Las Vegas bowl. In 2011 after a crushing defeat we felt we belonged in the Sugar but were passed over. In 2014 the new CFP rankings has given us something we have never had a clear path...

Boise State kills Wyoming and its dream of a Bowl Game as well as ESPN Cameraman

Chris Fallica a cameraman for espn @chrisfallica proved himself to be more a Gruber™ * Fan then someone who actually does analysis. While a week earlier he may have predicted V-Techs win over a very suspect Duke team when he ventured out on the limb to say Wyoming would upset Boise State he confirmed a long held suspicion about many who hate on Boise State and that they just don’t...

Jay Ajayi & the Offensive line stomped the life out of SDSU in the 4th for the win 38-29

Yesterday was a wild day in College Football; Notre Dame loses at home to a North Western team that rarely showed up in most big games because of a last minute fumble. Washington looked as good as they have since Chris Petersen arrived offensively and defensively on the road at Arizona to lose with a last minute fumble. Miami trues to hold on at home against Florida State only to...

60-49 Boise State vs. New Mexico a Game of Big Plays

No basketball season hasn’t yet started but with all the fast breaks in this game it’s hard to believe that the game was decided by big Defensive plays.

Game was over when with 36 seconds to go Jay Ajayi burst 14 yards for the Bronco’s...

Why Chris Petersen’s struggles at UW matter to Bronco Nation.

  It’s not because what many in Bronco Nation believe, being it somehow it reflects, justifies and somehow affirms Boise States past as a power football school.   One and three was not the start to the  PAC 12 season Husky fans expected when you add in the opener against Hawaii with the shootout win against EWU a Team Idaho State nearly beat on the road.

Boise State leaves BYU a smoldering heap of ASHES.

It was over when they entered the Stadium I knew it, most of BYU’s fan base knew it and BYU knew it. A lot of those young men who put a stomping on BYU were Chris Petersen’s players this is true but it was Coach Harsin, Yates and Stanford along with all the other staff that got these guys playing like world beaters in relatively short order. Boise State started out fast and...

This being the last year of shortened fall practices and the loss of 3 scholarships some might speculate that having to maintain only 82 scholarship athletes as compared to 85 yearly shouldn’t make that much difference, but let’s consider the class of 2007.     Which 3 scholarships do we not offer?
