    I felt these guys are worth mentioning even though most won't make it through to their senior year here. But Boise has a long history of guys contributing, earning scholarships, and even first round draft picks and conference player-of-the year winners that started as walk-ons. These are the new incoming freshman walk-ons (correct me if I'm wrong or missing anyone). Tailback: 32 Spencer Keene, 5-11, 228, Fr. Wide Receiver: 15 Maclaine Griffin, 6-2, 191, Fr. 89 Connor Riddle, 6-1, 197, Fr. Tight End: 87 Kaden DeLuna, 6-5, 225, Fr. Offensive Line: 51 Dalton Lins, 6-1, 282, Fr. 63 Keegan Ulrich, 6-4, 249, Fr. Defensive End: 60 Isaiah Grover, 6-4, 228, Fr. Defensive Tackle: 94 Jacob Pinkney, 6-2, 257, Fr. Stud: 49 Dylan Herberg, 6-2, 207, Fr. Safety: 42 Mujeeb Rufai, 6-0, 198, Fr.

    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.

    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.

    Boise too play Georgia tech

    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.

    Boise too play Georgia tech

    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.

    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).

    Another interesting stat

    And Rocky Long has to play at UCLA where they will be underdogs in the first road game this year.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

    Curtis Weaver 2nd Team AA

    Only G5 player on the offensive/defensive teams. I'm sure he'll have many more preseason accolades as the summer moves on. Currently #6 all-time on BSU career sack list with 20.5. With just 3 sacks this year, he'll move into the #3 spot behind Chris Wing (32) and Eric Hegleson (54.5).

    Let's talk about the schedule

    According to ESPN FPI (ranked #42): at FSU (28.3% chance of winning) Marshall (80.8%) Portland State (98.7%) Air Force (78.3%) at UNLV (83.9) Hawaii (87.0%) at BYU (42.7%) at SJSU (88.1%) Wyoming (86.2%) New Mexico (94.0%) Utah State (72.1%) Colorado State (82.5%) --- If you believe those numbers, the likelihood for Boise State is 9-3 or 10-2:

    Kendal Briles is probably stressed out

    Kendal Briles as OC 2015 Baylor (48.1 ppg, #1 in country) 2016 Baylor (34.6 ppg, #35) 2017 FAU (40.6 ppg, #8) 2018 Houston (43.5 ppg, #5)

    Kendal Briles is probably stressed out

    Yeah, this is kind of how I feel. Their O-Line was garbage last year, but they have athletes all over the place if the line gets shored up. They’ve consistently been one of the top teams in recruiting, so it is hard to see them completely falling off. Plus their defense looks good enough to cause our new QB and RB fits. Right now I’m feeling a 14-10 type of game.
  15. I guess she didn't want to be part of Nike's PED-infused training team in Eugene. I love Brooks. Great choice for her after being forced to wear Nike garbage the last few years. Boise High's NIck Symmonds used to run for Brooks as well.
  16. I was in the car and missed it, but she ran a PR of 9:31 and finished 13th out of 16 (almost all professional) runners.

    Great sign for Chase Cord

    I keep forgetting he’s basically still a R-Freshman this year. That injury redshirt year puts him and Riley Smith and the walk-on QB Zach Matlock all in the same class. I think they will all be here for the start of 2019, but would’t be surprised if one or two of the Quarterbacks leave after 4 games in order to be eligible to play somewhere in 2020.
  18. 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. Women’s 3000m Steeplechase Personal Best Beatrice Chepkoech (Kenya) 8:44.32 WR Celliphine Chepteek Chespol (Kenya) 8:58.78 Norah Jeruto (Kenya) 8:59.62 Hyvin Kiyeng (Kenya) 9:00.01 Courtney Frerichs (USA) 9:00.85 Emma Coburn (USA) 9:02.58 Peruth Chemutai (Uganda) 9:07.94 Colleen Quigley (USA) 9:10.27 Daisy Jepkemei (Kenya) 9:10.71 Winfred Mutile Yavi (Bahrain) 9:10.74 Gesa-Felicitas Krause (Germany) 9:11.85 *Caroline Tuigong (Kenya) 9:28.81 Allie Ostrander (USA) 9:37.73 Xu Shuangshuang (China) 9:47.42 * = pacer

    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.

    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...
