  1. Looks like it will be the first steeplechase that she doesn't win. Beatrice Chepkoech is the world record holder at nearly a minute faster than Allie's PR. You never know though. If the pace starts out slow, it could be anyone's race.

    Scott Matlock looks biiiiiig

    Also noted in this picture of defensive lineman - Casey Kline on the far right. So it looks like he'll be a STUD instead of a more stereotypical LB like some expected. As for Matlock, he was listed at 250 coming out of high school, then 286 on the roster last year. Now it looks like he might be 310+? And coaches were originally considering grey-shirting him. But now it looks like he will play a lot as a redshirt freshman.

    2020 recruiting thread

    It looks like he had an offer back in May from Boise State, but was hoping for a Minnesota offer. He went to the Minnesota camp in June, looks like they didn't offer, then he committed to Boise. I think he looks like a good football player. Strong tough kid that really seems like a guy we've been missing the last few years. The hybrid FB/TE type of guy like Richie Brockel.

    Redshirted...

    Which Redshirt Freshman will have the biggest impact this season? --- SLB Brandon Hawkins QB Riley Smith WR Maclaine Griffin QB Zach Matlock WLB Phillip Mills WR Billy Bowens CB Tyric LeBeauf CB Chris Mitchell DE Kukea Emmsley RB Danny Smith Stud Demitri Washington Stud Dylan Herberg OL Dalton Lins MLB DJ Schramm OL Kekanioko Holomalia-Gonzalez DT Scott Matlock OL Keegan Ulrich OL Dallas Holliday OL Garret Curran WR Stefan Cobbs TE Cole Ramseyer TE Kaden DeLuna TE Tyneil Hopper WR Connor Riddle NT Keeghan Freeborn DT Jackson Cravens (Utah transfer - won't be eligible --- I've heard the most buzz about: Hopper (even though Ramseyer actually saw the field for a few plays last season) Cobbs (getting praise from Rypien on twitter) Mitchell (played well at CB in spring game) Matlock (saw action last year as well and gets lots of praise for his hard work) Who else makes a big impact this year?

    Likely to play as trFR

    Must have gotten it confused with Mountain View. I'm blaming the lack of creativity with their school names out there.

    Walk-on RB from Skyview in Meridian...
  8. Should be an interesting competition at kicker. Maybe moreso than QB.
  9. I was thinking its more like ‘who would it hurt the most to lose to injury’. 3. Williams 2. Cleveland 1. Weaver That would be my top 3 remaining. Molchon gets left out, but he’d be top 10 on my list. I think the play at CB (and health) of Avery Williams and Jalen Walker plus a couple others behind them will define the season. If those guys can lock down 1on1, it could be a very special season.
  10. I've always thought they should put it on the ticket by seat - that way they could come up with some really cool designs - but you wouldn't know what it was going to be until game day - only the color of shirt you were supposed to wear.

    So, recruiting in Utah.

    Riley Whimpey and Kekoa Nawahine also went on missions but not from Utah. They both had success and played as “true” freshman. And so did Lui. So I think the “out of shape” returned missionary doesn’t hold much water. None had BYU offers though, so that part may be partially true.

    So, recruiting in Utah.

    I don't believe any of them sign...because signing is only good for the next year. They just commit which is non-binding. But I agree - they should be able to sign for 2-years in advance - then they wouldn't be able to switch last minute. But then what happens when the entire coaching staff leaves?

    So, recruiting in Utah.

    Boise State owns the State of Utah (5-2 vs. Utah, 7-2 vs BYU, 18-5 vs Utah State). So I think we are in a good position to steal some of the best football players in the state. Idaho has 7 three-star or higher rated recruits for the class of 2020 (that's more than normal). Utah has 23. Boise has a sizeable Mormon population - so I think having returned missionaries is great and helps keep Mormons being fans of BSU and not switching to being BYU fans just because of the religious element. They also seem to make good teammates and can handle adversity. We historically haven't gotten a lot of players there but I think we could steal a lot of guys from BYU now that they are independent and have struggled a bit. But we haven't tried to recruit the area very much. Sonatane Lui and Jackson Cravens are the only Utah guys on the roster. Brayden Shipp seemed pretty solid before his mission. Langi makes me wonder if he really wanted to go to BYU or Utah. Never seemed that hyped about Boise and went on a mission last minute. —- Sonatane Lui (6'-1, 290 NT) Jackson Cravens (6'-3", 295 OT) (Utah Transfer - originally from Provo) 2019 - Lolani Langi (6'-2", 223 LB) - 2018 - Braydin Shipp (6'-6", 313 OL) - currently in Lima, Peru

    Maybe, but WR is a very difficult position to get drafted at. Preston Williams left early from Colorado State last year. 6’-4”, 210...and caught 96 passes for 1345 yards and 14 touchdowns on the season. He went undrafted.

    Likely to play as trFR

    The Octavius Evans situation last year still has me shaking my head... 2 receptions for 12 yards..but "saw action" in 5 games. So now he's a Junior instead of a Sophomore with 3 years left.

    Marcus Washington - looks like he is no longer on the official Broncosports roster. Maybe the walk-on RB from Skyview HS and 5A SIC POY, Tyler Crowe?

    Leighton Vander Esch 2019/20

    Kellen Moore as the offensive coordinator. Cedrick Wilson back from injury at WR. Demarcus Lawrence and Tyrone Crawford on the defensive line. Leighton Vander Esch at MLB George Illoka and Darian Thompson at safety. ---

    I think Holani and Kline are the only ones that look like they will burn redshirts for sure to me. Possibly Gavin Wale at punter. Nobody was very good at that spot last year. He may even have the talent to win the kicking job over Velasquez and the graduate transfer Sachse.
  19. Solid pickup. Nearly a 4* DT out of HS even though he missed a season. He will have to sit out 2019 but should be in the running for a starting DT spot in 2020. He's also 6'-3", 305. Sounds like he was in the running for more playing time last year as a true freshman but missed a lot due to injury. Then was also injured in the spring and fell behind a couple guys. Hopefully he can get healthy during next years "redshirt" season.
  20. HIGH SCHOOL: First-team 4A all-state as a junior at Timpview HS (Utah) before missing his senior season with an injury … 2016 All-Valley 4A Defensive Player of the Year … 2016 Region 7 Defensive MVP … two-time all-region … 2016 second-team All-USA Utah Football Team … three star recruit by 247sports and Rivals … 160 tackles (24.0 TFL, 13.0 sacks) as a junior … 63 tackles (3.5 sacks) and two passes defended as a sophomore. PERSONAL: Son of Ryan and Julie Cravens … three sisters … nephew of head football coach Kyle Whittingham ... cousins Jason, Tyler and Alex Whittingham all played football at Utah ... cousins Su’a Cravens and Jordan Cameron both played at USC and in the NFL … cousins Colby Cameron (Louisiana Tech) and Mufi Hill-Hunt (Michigan State) also played college football … has not declared a major.

    Langi on a Mission

    That is my thought as well. Although Boise has been pretty good at keeping these guys lately (Whimpey, Nawahine, Lui, and Miles).

    Langi on a Mission

    Just announced via twitter. I'm guessing this is why coaches were able to add Booker-Brown just a few weeks ago at LB. Hopefully he doesn't have a change of heart over the next two years.
  23. Or maybe a transfer? Somebody like one of these guys would be nice... https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/college/ct-spt-illinois-football-larry-boyd-transferring-20190122-story.html

    Florida State Preview

    Yeah, but 2004 and 2006 were the only years in the last two decades with >60%. A lot of that extra 5% those years were because they were blowing teams out badly and running the ball in the second half. That could be the case after a lot of games this year. Also, Portland State, CSU, New Mexico, SJSU, Hawaii, and UNLV all had bad rushing defenses last year. So you may be on to something. Hopefully AVB (or whoever starts at RB) averages 6+ yards per carry like Johnson did in 2006! And if the QB could average more than the 2 ypc that Zabransky had - we could have a dominating balanced offense like 2014 (just hopefully without the interceptions).
