Boise State

Boise State players continue to show up on pre-season watch lists

. Kellen Moore and Doug Martin are the latest of nine Broncos on various lists.

Preseason football awards watch lists to the 2011 season continue to be released and Boise State players continue to be named to those lists.

In recent announcements, quarterback  has been named to the Davey O'Brien and Walter Camp award watch lists, while running back  was named to the Doak Walker award watch list. 

The Davey O'Brien award is presented to the nation's most outstanding quarterback, while the Walter Camp award is presented each year to the most outstanding player in college football.  The Doak Walker award is presented to the nation's most outstanding running back.

Moore was a finalist for both the Davey O'Brien and Walter Camp awards last season, which were won by 2011 Heisman Trophy award winning Cam Newton of Auburn. 

Moore and Martin have also been named to the watch list for the Maxwell award which is presented to the nation's most outstanding all-around player. 

Boise State Broncos picked to top the Mountain West

It has  been a while since I've posted any football goodies. I probably should have when . Incidentally, that's pretty sweet considering all the shuffling of staff, players, and conferences.

Speaking of conferences, here is a nice writeup at that has Boise State beating all in the Mountain West.

The Boise State Broncos lose quite a bit of skill to graduation, but they still have plenty in the fold. Heisman candidate senior quarterback Kellen Moore is coming off a fantastic season in which he tossed 35 TD to just six INT. He no longer has draft picks Titus Young and Austin Pettis to throw to, but tailback Doug Martin, WR Tyler Shoemaker and TE Kyle Efaw are ready to fill the holes created in the offense. 

The Broncos will have more competition as they move to the Mountain West, but conference champion TCU is likely to return from last year's heights.

Ahhh, not much longer before things really start rolling.


New regulation for NFL field color - the Boise Rule bans colored turf

I can understand why the NFL would want to of playing fields.  Besides, it just makes the Smurf Turf more unique. Awww yeeeaaahhh.

The NFL is famous for big salaries, rabid fans and huge TV ratings, but a new rule will make sure it doesn't horn in Boise State's turf - literally.

While Boise will likely never have an NFL team, the NFL now has a "Boise rule."  League owners voted Tuesday to outlaw non-green playing surfaces in a rule named for the Broncos' famous field. reports league owners wanted to launch a pre-emptive strike against teams giving their fields a makeover as part of a sponsor deal.  The rule means we won't see any Coca-Cola red turf or UPS brown fields any time soon.

"It's only an answer to some great advertiser who may have (proposed) changing the field color," competition committee chairman Rich McKay .

Broncos finish the season ranked 7 and 9 in Coaches and AP

Boise state makes the Top 10 in postseason polls ranked 7th in the USA Today poll and 9th in the AP.  And how about TCU ranked ?  Didn't see that one coming.  via :

Boise State is ranked No. 7 in USA Today Coaches poll and No. 9 in the final Associated Press college football poll.

The Broncos went 12-1 during the year, grabbed a share of the Western Athletic Conference title and ended the season by thumping No. 20 Utah 26-3 in the MAACO Bowl.

The ranking marks the third time in the last five years the Broncos have ended the season in the Top 10.

The Broncos were on pace to finish higher and even contend for a BCS bowl bid, but a late season loss to WAC rival Nevada spoiled those plans. Nevada ended the season ranked No. 11.

The last AP poll of the season put the Broncos between No. 8 LSU and No. 10 Alabama.

Auburn clinched the No. 1 ranking with a 22-19 last second win over Oregon in the BCS championship game Monday night. 

Undefeated TCU passed Oregon in both polls to finish second.

The Ducks are ranked third, followed by Stanford and Ohio State.

Big shuffle on Boise State's coaching staff? OC leaving, Pete in "talks"?


Chris Petersen is staying at Boise State.

Petersen, who has been linked in recent days to the head coaching vacancy at Stanford, announced Monday he has no plans to leave the Broncos.

Petersen is one of the nation's most successful coaches in the last five years, building the Broncos into a perennial Top 10 team and compiling a 61-5 record during that span.

Petersen also said he has filled two vacancies on his staff, bringing back Brent Pease to be offensive coordinator. Last month, Pease accepted the job as offensive coordinator at Indiana.

Pease takes over the spot held previously by Bryan Harsin, now the offensive coordinator at Texas.

Petersen also said quarterback coach Robert Prince will return to coach wide receivers and serve as passing game coordinator.


Oh boy, here we go again.  Every year after the bowls are done, there are rumors about Coach Pete leaving for a higher profile, better paying job.  There have also been rumors about others on the staff doing the same.  This year is no different.


Congratulations Boise State Broncos - Maaco Las Vegas Bowl Champions!

A slow start to be sure, but after they got rolling it was a great game to watch.  Moore, Pettis, Martin; all did a fantastic job in the 26-3 victory over the Utah Utes.  Well done BSU!
