  1. You could be right. Haven't seen him play, but he fits the bill of an every-down back more than Mahone and AVB at 6' and 211. Ajayi, McNichols, and Martin all played around the 210-215 poundage. Mahone lacks a bit of power (but has the agility to be good out of the backfield.) AVB is huge and has a lot of power, but at 227 and in seeing him play - I think he lacks a bit of agility and would benefit from dropping 10 pounds to get more speed and quickness.
  2. High School links should go to appropriate highlight videos. Names linked to Broncosports bio. My thoughts: It seems like they are still a bit short on numbers at this position. Spencer Keene is a walk-on. Danny Smith redshirted last year as AVB played as a true freshman. Mahone carried the ball 32 times to AVB's 34 times. Khalil Shakir also carried the ball a number of times from the backfield last year, but I think he will move into a more full-time role at WR, so I haven't included him here. It will be interesting to see if Andrew Van Buren wins the starting job, or if a more committee approach is taken. While Mahone and Van Buren had almost the same number of carries, AVB never caught a pass out of the backfield (Mahone had 12 receptions). I also think one of the true freshman will burn a redshirt, and both will play next year.

    Bereal arrested

    I almost hit for the cycle (A, B, B, D, F) my first semester - took too many tough classes and couldn't keep up with the workload. But eventually turned it around and was on the Dean's list my last 3 years. College can be tough - and these guys have lots of distractions on top of the normal stuff. I bet he gets it figured out. He's got a lot more to lose (potential professional career) and it sounds like the motivation to improve is there.

    Bereal arrested

    I agree. Jay Ajayi got arrested as a freshman for stealing sweatpants. Ryan Finley got arrested for dumb stuff. Both learned from it and became better people. Not if they are good. Gonzaga's Josh Perkins got a DUI a couple years ago - and appeared in every game that year. https://www.krem.com/article/news/local/spokane-county/new-details-shed-light-on-gu-basketball-player-josh-perkins-arrest/338419787 They also had a player (Josh Heytvelt) pick up a felony controlled substance conviction a few years prior to that - and he came back the next year to lead them in scoring.

    Yeah BJ Rains said it was school work that he’s missing games for. That IMO is a bigger deal than getting into a fight downtown on Saturday night. https://www.idahopress.com/blueturfsports/basketball/boise-state-freshman-guard-jaycson-bereal-arrested-early-sunday-morning/article_3c32a724-2d53-11e9-a3aa-fbee11cb31c8.amp.html

    I dont know. Looks like that may have been his only offer. He was a bit undersized as a 6’-7” PF in HS. I think grew a bit during college.

    San Jose

    Alston with a career high 31 with 6 minutes to go. nobody to sub in with short bench. 91-43 lets get 100!

    It’s crazy that they could still have Brandon Clarke - who’s now one of the best forwards in the country for Gonzaga.
  9. In that stadium video, sounds like Casey Kline will be playing the WLB position.

    Player Trade

    Tony Lashley - graduate transfer to Boise State from Idaho last season. --- Boise returning the favor - DE Kayode Rufai has transferred to Idaho with 2 years of eligibility remaining.

    Player Trade

    Looks like his brother Mujeeb also transferred to Idaho from BSU. Mujeeb was a walk-on safety and scout team defensive player of the year.

    3-4 Defense

    So basically the Stud position is going to be called a linebacker instead of a defensive lineman.

    3-4 Defense

    I just don't get how the nomenclature means anything. Looks like a 4-2-5 to me. Call the Nickelback a linebacker and its a 4-3. Call the stand-up DE a Linebacker and it's a 3-4.

    Yeah. Marshall is pretty good, too. Beat USF in the Gasparilla Bowl to finish 9-4 last year. Went 8-5 in 2017 and beat CSU in the New Mexico Bowl.

    25th anniversary year of the 1994 team that beat Marshall in the semifinal FCS game. Boise would go on to lose the natty to Youngstown State.

    Tough road games to end the season vs. two of the top teams (maybe?) in the division in cold-weather climates. Destination trip to Vegas in October. Three straight home games early in the season.
