  1. That's him next to 300# NTs Scale Igiehon and Sonatone Lui.
  2. I've been saying since it happened that Chase would be ready to go well before fall ball. Well, he played in Boise State's charity softball game. He took an at bat and ran out a grounder. Since they had him running in a meaningless softball game, I think it's safe to say rehab has gone well and he'll be ready.

    Great sign for Chase Cord

    It'll be interesting. Luckily he can get some playing time this year, not lose a year of eligibility, and get another legit shot at winning the job next year. With Chase being a mobile QB, hopefully he sees the real possibility of getting onto the field even if he loses that battle. It seems unlikely that Chase could go 4 years without injuries.
  4. Boise just wrapped up their football camp and there were a ton of big time recruits there. I figured I'd post some twitter nuggets here.

    2020 recruiting thread

    Pretty under the radar guy. Different from many of the recruits Boise has been getting and from an area Boise doesn't normally recruit. I'm guessing he was at the camp and impressed the coaches.
  6. Obviously all of the ones that graduated early have a chance. My guess is both of the QBs RS and with Langi going on a mission, Kline almost certainly plays. Brad Larrondo was on IST and he says that they brought five FR early (June instead of July like the rest of the FR) that they feel have a chance to contribute right away. Holani and Duncan are in Boise, no surprise there and one will definitely play and possibly both. Markel Reed is also. Not a surprise. He is a high rated recruit at a position that needs some depth. DK Blaylock is the WR that they brought in early. I wondered if they would play any of the talented WRs. It's a stacked position, but all of the FR are BIG, with DK being the biggest of the group. He'll add something that the current group lacks. The last one was a bit of a surprise. DE Dylan Hall. They are playing him at STUD and feel they need some depth there.
  7. ... according to the Idaho Press Tribune. They aren't done yet, but this is what it looks like so far. 1) Curtis Weaver 2) Ezra Cleveland 3) Avery Williams 4) Chase Cord 5) Khalil Shakir 6) David Moa 7) Zeke Now 8 ) John Hightower 9) Andrew VanBuren 10) CT Thomas 11) Jalen Walker 12) Eric Quevedo 13) Kekoa Nawahine 14) Riley Whimpey 15) Joel Velasquez 16) Kekaula Kaniho 17) John Bates 18) Octavius Evans 19) Deandre Pierce 20) Chase Hatada At first glance, it's obvious that this is based on the ones who need to perform for Boise to be successful and less the ones that they already know are gunna show up. Although Weaver isn't on there and he will likely be in the top 3. Some of these guys I don't even think will be starters. Velasquez being one of them. I don't think CT Thomas starts either. I wouldn't be surprised if Griffin starts over Bates, as well. In my opinion, I'd say that Cord is the most important player this year. If he does well, they should be very, very good. What are your thoughts?
  8. Yep, Cleveland at #2 and Weaver #1
  9. ... according to opposing coaches. That's surprising to me. https://watchstadium.com/news/mountain-west-basketball-coaches-rank-the-best-jobs-conference-05-08-2019/

    He physically looks ready to play right now. Btw, I love this color combination. I don't think they've ever used it.

    2020 recruiting thread

    https://247sports.com/Recruitment/Brandon-Hernandez-120766/RecruitInterests/ Monster get. Had offers from Oregon, Cal, Wazzu, Colorado, and Arizona State. I'm trying to remember a high school OL that had that many P5 offers.
  12. I would agree that of the known entities Weaver would be the worst to lose to injury. You would go from a potential All American, 1st round draft pick, DPOTY toooooo... I don't even know who be would #2 now that Sam Whitney was lost for the year.

    Likely to play as trFR

    There off field issues that hurt his draft stock. Plus he had shet hands and had a hard time getting separation. He used his size and speed at the college level. That wouldn't work at the next level.

    Likely to play as trFR

    If he's as good as people say, he definitely has an NFL body.

    Likely to play as trFR

    Yeah, that was ridiculous. I wonder if they'll be able to appeal for another year.

    Likely to play as trFR

    Hars annually seems to burn RSs on kids that barely play. Those might be the only two that see a significant amount of playing time, but I'd guess there will be a few more that don't RS.
  17. Not sure who it is. Would seem to be a lineman judging from this.
  18. I would be a great get. Especially since they don't need much this season, but they will next season. Getting a player that has to sit out would be a good situation. A guy who started 9 games as a trFR in the B1G would be perfect.
  19. If I were to guess It'd be a JC OL. Moore and Dixon left unexpectedly, plus they will likely have to replace 4 of 5 on the OL next year, so having an older more experienced player would help there. Especially since the last two recruiting classes have been pretty thin on the OL.

    Florida State Preview

    The 2007 Fiesta Bowl team ran the ball 65% of the time. Running plays can mean a lot of things. That means QB options, RPOs, read options, QB draws, end arounds, fly sweeps, wildcat... all of which Boise has in the playbook. You're gunna see Khalil and Hightower running the ball, so there are ways to get the ball into the WRs hands without throwing it every down. They'll throw it too, but Boise has always run the ball more than they throw it. They are usually somewhere between 52-58% run heavy. Harsin's most run heavy team was 58% run... which happened to be the Fiesta Bowl team. With the defense being a strength, a veteran OL, and an inexperienced QB, it makes sense to lean on the strengths and not rely on the most inexperienced part of the team.

    Florida State Preview

    Yeah, the defense is solid all over. The two areas that injuries could cause some trouble is LB and CB. Losing both Maeva, Heffner, and Dez Williams prematurely in the same year hurt the depth there. CB, there just isn't a lot of experienced depth which is why they brought in grad transfer Buffalo. Also, losing someone like Weaver, who is an AA and 1st round draft pick candidate would obviously hurt too. Maybe I should be, but I'm not concerned with the offense. At RB, Boise had produced an AC RB for 20 years, so they should be fine there. Especially with all the experience coming back at OL. They were dominant in the run game by the end of the year. Add in three 4**** RBs (four if you count Khalil Shakir, who lines up in the backfield sometimes), there should be production there. WR and TE has a much talent as I can remember. That leaves QB which is another position that Boise almost always comes up with an AC player. I'm fairly certain it'll be Cord. With his mobility, the OL, the strength at RB, and strong defense, it seems like the run game should be strong enough to put him in favorable positions. I'd really like to see Boise run the ball 60% of the time.
