Great story of compassion and sportsmanship when a girl tears her ACL hitting a home run

This story is about Sara Tucholsky. During a ball game after hitting a home run, she sustained a serious knee injury. Since her homer wouldn't count if her teammates helped her, she was given a lift from Central Washington's Liz Wallace, and Mallory Holtman. What an awesome story of compassion and human spirit.

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. 

NBCSports.com 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!

GO BRONCOS!

The Boise State Broncos will be wearing new uniforms for the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas.

The new Nike uniforms were unveiled at a ceremony this morning at Cowboys Stadium.

Boise State was one of four teams to get the new Nike Pro Combat uniforms.  The others are Oregon, TCU and Florida.

This isn't the first time Boise State will be wearing new uniforms this season.

In the opening game against Virginia Tech, the Broncos wore grey uniforms.

Congratulations to the Broncos on their WAC title

Congrats to the BSU Broncos for their three way tie in the WAC Championship!  With a couple of polls yet to be released, it appears fairly certain that the Blue & Orange will be heading south to the Las Vegas Bowl to play against Utah.  Should be a good game and I expect a large travel contingent.  More .

GO BRONCOS!
