    I use one piece as a floor mat in my garage.

    Boise State vs. South Florida

    Interesting matchup. Should garner some fan interest. Great for recruiting. I like it.

    Who's going to the Spring Game?

    Did you see Bachmeier at the scrimmage? He looked like the stockiest of all the QBs. I even double checked with a friend, who agreed.

    Who's going to the Spring Game?

    I'm not confused. I know which one is which but I did look at their measurables and you are correct-- Smith is the bigger guy. This surprised me because I really thought Bachmeier looked stockier (not taller). Did anyone else think he looked big? If Bachmeier really is 185 pounds, then he sure looked slow to me at that size.

    Who's going to the Spring Game?

    Yes, but he certainly didn't separate himself in any way either. I think you go with Jaylen if you don't think anybody else shines enough to win the job. Or-- you go with Jaylen because he is a senior and that means several of these QBs are still in the running for the job in the future and may not choose to transfer out. I think Cord benefited from nobody separating themselves because he was ahead of Jaylen before he got hurt. From a fan perspective, I think Smith and Bennett might seem like more viable options now but I doubt this game has any effect on how the coaches see these guys.

    I cant remember if Bennett threw a pass to Cobb or not but the play that stood out was the pass thrown by Smith on third down that Cobb caught on the sideline. Agree that our defensive front should be good but linebackers are a concern. I think if we saw more running plays, there would have been a lot more yards gained there. When you have a running clock, run plays eat up a lot of time so I suspect that this (and the fact there are a ton of QBs) is why we saw so many passes. 5 yard runs up the middle seemed to be there all game.

    There were so many QBs playing that it made it really hard to have any real takeaways from the game. The scrimmage went by really fast. They all only had 2 or 3 drives, except Matlock who only had one. It was also hard to tell who was going up against the #1 and #2 defense because all defenders wore the same color and were switching out reguarly. So FWIW... Henderson probably had the best day overall but his numbers were a little padded by some great plays by his WRs (the RBs seemed to get more yards when he was in too). Henderson didn't impress me when he got out of the pocket as much as I would have hoped. He seemed a lot less accurate. Riley Smith was a pleasant surprise. If Henderson was 1, he might have been 1a. He throws a pretty nice ball and is reasonably mobile. Cobbs made the catch of the day on the ball thrown by Smith. I liked Kaiden Bennett a lot more than I thought I would. He appeared to be the fastest/most mobile-- though I think Cord is probably faster (at least pre-injury). Made mostly shorter throws but used his movement to open the defense up a little bit. The QBs all were down when touched so mobile QBs were at a disadvantage in the scrimmage. Hank Bachmeier has good pocket presence. He is also the biggest QB we have in terms of his overall build and has a nice arm. He appeared to be the slowest/least mobile and was not accurate (a few balls were thrown 10 feet over peoples heads, out of bounds). He had three drives and only got one first down and that was on a handoff. He was the only QB that was unable to move the ball down the field. Again, I don't think this is that big of a deal at this point so don't read too much into this. Zack Matlock looked better than any walk-on QB I can ever remember seeing. In his only drive he moved the ball about 75 yards and had some good completions, This really is the deepest group of QBs I've ever seen here. The problem is, only one can start. Also, Cord hasn't had the chance to take the field because he will certainly be a factor.

    I'll be there but I think the rain will keep a lot of people away. This is the earliest I can remember them holding this game.

    QB Battle

    Harsin has picked the most experienced guy to run the offense every year. It could be Hank but Cord or even Henderson are more likely if you just go by tendencies. Again, I just don't see Hank starting his first game ever against Florida State. If a guy gets rattled or loses confidence right out of the gate, sometimes he never recovers.

    Schmedding named DC.

    Do you think SDSU or Fresno want to change coaches?

    Schmedding named DC.

    Nether is Ron Zook's. The point is that Hill's teams had high expectations and never lived up to them.

    Schmedding named DC.

    Well, he's taken ever team he's had to a higher level so-- yes.

    More like Pat Hill in the early 2000s would be my guess. I don't think Harsin is a terrible coach. He recriuts well. I just think the attention to detail and overall execution level just isn't where it once was-- or where it needs to be if you want to be a top G5 school. Execution and player development are way more important than recruiting IMO.

    I would hire Andy Avalos. The biggest issue is the idea that we should just be happy because we win around 10 games a year. Half of the coaches in the country could win 10 games at Boise State. The truth is that the top teams in our league hope we keep Harsin forever. We've won one championship in the past four years. We've lost at least two games every season under Harsin and have lost a lot of league games. We aren't the best team in the league-- but we should be. We have the most talent by far. We supposedly had our best recruiting class ever this year. Are you going to be happy if we average 10 wins the next four years if that results in one conference championship and no access bowls? Harsin's teams underperform and then our fans make A bunch of excuses. We are stuck with him since no other school seems to want to hire him away...
