Re: QB Draft Question

Love was lucky enough to go to a good team in the first round. Wilson is really good, but very well may go high enough to go to a bad team. For a QB in the NFL, talent is the most important thing, but situation is easily second and it makes a huge difference on a players career trajectory.

Re: New QB

I hope we can get some additional receiver weapons to put around Bonner because he was spoiled at Arky State. Although we do have a few nice play makers he may have a rude awakening unless BA and Cefalo can pull in a few more. Based on Bonners ASU stats I assumed he wasn’t much of a runner but he d...

Re: Harsin to Auburn

Oddly, it had reached a point where Boise being good is actually bad for the MWC. Their sweetheart deals and regular threatenings to leave or blow up the conference unless they get more sweetheart deals are far worse for the conference than them being average or bad would ever be. For the health of ...

Re: Harsin to Auburn

In theory, it would be bad for the MWC to have Boise hire a bad coach but they're so full of themselves I actually think it would be good for the conference.

Here's to this being true and Boise hiring a stinker to replace him.

Good riddance, it will be us and SJSU as the perineal MWC Teams every year now.

Re: What's our QB Situation

If Peasley is head and shoulders above Legas and Calvin (assumed because they never even got a single snap), we very much need a solid transfer QB. Peasley (or the other two) may be good with time, but they're not ready yet.

Re: Coach already hitting the recruiting

Anderson landing a 4* guy like Sirmon would be HUGE for perception to other recruits.

Guy comes in to a 1-5 program that clearly has issues and in his first class brings in a 4* transfer QB with 3 to play 3? That would be enormous for selling the program to other recruits.
