    Boise too play Georgia tech

    We had no go to guy last year. Unless that changes, I don't see 20 wins. Jessup is our leading returning scorer and he can be pretty easily neutralized by any decent defensive team. He is so streaky that he can neutralize himself a good portion of the time.

    Yeah, this post was from last year. Didn't want to start a new thread about Nawahine. Of last years walkons - Keene, Grover, Pinkney, and Rufai have all left the team.

    Well, both of them are now at Idaho...

    Just saw that he enrolled at Utah State in January and impressed in spring ball. Sounds like he may have greyshirted there instead of walking on at BSU.
  7. This is how I see it as well. Tedford is not a world beater and the drop off at QB/WR will sting big time for the Fresburgians. Their (FresNeck) Oline is nasty and a good > very good LB group will keep them in the hunt. Nevada I don't see doing well this year whereas Lower Nevada is an unknown and I believe UH could challenge. "Spread" coming to Aztecs, lets see if its just an alignment or an actual approach. My guess is the latter which is unfortunate as we became way too predictable. Rocky keeps saying Utah State is all that. He doesn't mince his words much. The Scouts will be good but it always depends on where you play them in the season as their depth kills them every year.

    I see them getting back to 20 wins this year. I think we go with a small lineup vs. just about everybody unless we really need interior defense. Robin Jorch was really bad inside. Hopefully he's healthy and can make a turnaround, and hopefully Frazier has developed the skills for this level.

    Winnable but don't see us winning any more then 18 games maybe even less

    Another interesting stat

    Boise State has done a helluva job in keeping itself in a position of strength regardless of the HC. And it goes to show just how hard it is to perform at a level that BSU has done for the last 20 years.

    Looks like they lost a couple transfers - but do have their top 4 leading scorers back. But they weren't great last year. Should be a tough but winnable game for Boise.

    Looks like Georgia tech brings back 8 players they should be a worthy opponent.

    Boise too play Georgia tech

    Last Year's RPI ratings Houston: #7 Portland: #324 Georgia Tech: #156 Boise State: #222 UTEP: #331 Washington: #20 Ball State: #174 Hawaii: #226 --- A win in the first round would have us play a sweet sixteen team in the 2nd round against Houston (the AAC's #1 program).
  15. Earlier
  16. That game still gives me fits. Nevada game too.
  17. Yeah, that was nuts how many injuries Boise had in the secondary and how many bombs Pachall threw over their head.. But even with all that, it was so flukey. Fumbling when the game was all but over. Quaylen Ewing trying to intercept the 2 point conversion when knocking it down wins the game. And ANOTHER, missed field goal. Just crazy how much went wrong at the end of that game.

    And Rocky Long has to play at UCLA where they will be underdogs in the first road game this year.
  19. I feel we need help there as well. Still haunted by that TCU game back in 2011. And still perplexed at the decision of RHD to leave in the middle of 2017 season after starting some games as a sophomore. There has to be more to that story.
  20. https://www.rotoworld.com/college-football/nfl-draft/player/55452/ozziah-williams https://247sports.com/Player/Ozziah-Williams-41800/ Looks like he is a Juco CB. Signed with Western Michigan and enrolled early. Obviously didn't like it and is transferring to Boise State. It looks like he has 2 to play 2 so he'll have to get a waiver to play right away. Depth at CB was one of my concerns going into the season. Obviously it was with the coaches too. They grabbed transfer Khafari Buffalo, brought Markel Reed in pre-bridge program, and now get a JC CB. They obviously feel like they need some help back there.
  21. Harsin is the only HC in the MW that has a winning record on the road. He's 23-12. Every other HC is sub .500 except Rocky Long who is .500.
  22. Agreed. It's going to be a close division. SDSU also misses both Boise and AFA which will likely be the top two teams in the Mountain and get USU at home.
  23. I think the West is going to be interesting this year. SDSU and Fresno should be top two, but I think Hawaii, UNLV, and Nevada will all be better and challenge the top teams. Could see it end up with a couple 6-2 teams of three 5-3 teams atop the division. Based on getting Fresno and Nevada at home I’d predict SDSU wins the tiebreaker.
  24. That's three FR and NINE teams where the QB had started less than four games. Boise was the only team that featured a full time starter that was a returning starter. This year for Fresno (assuming no injuries), every team except UNR returns their QB... although Fresno didn't see UNR's starter last year either.
  25. They do lose some key members, including the MW DPOTY, all three LBs (the strength of their defense last year), and four of their top five tacklers (five of the top seven). But that's not the reason why I see them being quite a bit worse this year. They saw an INSANE amount of new/FR/back up QBs. It's nuts. Let's look: vs Idaho - well they just suck and an FCS team should get their ass handed to them... especially when the coach plays his son at QB vs Minnesota - They catch them with a FR QB starting his second game ever. Not only that, they start NINE FR, including seven on offense. vs UCLA - again, they get a team starting a trFR playing in his third game and a team that is installing a brand new offense. One that sucked against everyone early in the season before catching on later. vs Toledo - Toledo actually never really settled on one QB after losing their starter the year before. They played two all year, but they had 260+ yards of offense, 3 TDs 1 INT, and put up 27 points. But both of the QBs were 1st year "starters" in their 4th game. vs UNR - Catches the spacepack in their first game without Gangi and face a QB starting his first game ever. vs Wyoming - Another FR. Vanderwaal actually ended the season with the worst pass eff rating of any starting QB in the country. He was later pulled in favor of a trFR until he was injured and TVW finished the season. vs New Mexico - First year starting QB who took over in the 3rd game of the season making his 5th start ever, under a brand new UNM offense that ended up being atrocious. Only SJSU's offense was worse (by 8 ypg). vs Hawaii - another first year starting QB, but at least, this QB was entering his 8th start and was clicking. Hawaii goes 20-34 for 280+ yards passing, 2 TD 1 INT, with another 60+ yards rushing. vs UNLV - another back up QB when Armani Rodgers goes down again. That offense hums with AR in there, but is garbage without him. vs Boise State - FINALLY! This is the first QB they faced all year that had any starting experience prior to this year. Ryp goes 24-30, 270 yards, 1 TD 1 INT, 30 more yards rushing. vs SDSU - After missing most of the year, Chapman came back and so this is the 2nd QB with starting exp, but the shuffled him and Agnew. They go 8-21 for 220 yards, 2 TDs no INTs, with another 20 yards on the ground. That was their 4th best passing total of the year. vs SJSU - Not only are they garbage, but AGAIN, they catch a back up QB making his first start. He does go 24-41 for 304, 2 TDs 1 INT. They did have a good game against Ryp in the MWCG, but neither team could move the ball with the snow and Boise was without Evans (for the year) and deep threats Hightower and Shakir. Fresno actually ended with 263 total yards in regulation. That was Boise's 3rd best total on the season defensively and Fresno's worst offensively. So the conditions were bad.
