Today I started an argument with my wife while riding in an elevator.
I was wrong on so many levels.
There’s going to be an autograph signing this Saturday
It’s for two pretty well-known players on the football team. Spoiler: Ashton Jeanty and Taylen Green. If you’re in the neighborhood, and like pizza, you can stop by.
Boise State MBB moved up a touch in the KenPom
That win against UNR is what we call in the business, “good.” Boise State heads to New Mexico for a Friday tilt against the Lobos.
Also: Boise State MBB moves up in the Haslam Metrics
Which is cool. I only just found out about this particular metric but it sounds fine? Anyone else hear about this outfit?
A familiar coach is now a head coach in the state of Arizona
Good for him. Makes you wonder if he will make the jump back to the collegiate level but his connections, presumably, will help his athletes get to the next level.
I hope you like Minesweeper.
Latest report has Hank transferring to Louisiana Tech.
Zak Hill to a high school head coach? That is an interesting move. I was upset that he left us so quickly. He seemed like a talented offensive mind. I totally understood that working under Harsin could be difficult. But this seems like a weird move. Hopefully this is exactly what he wants.
LaTech is a good move. They typically have a solid team. I think he is looking to get 1 good year in with a smaller school then transfer his remaining year to a P5 school. That’s what I would do if I thought I had a shot in the NFL. With respect to Zach Hill, maybe Harsin just saw something others didn’t. That he wasn’t an effective OC. I still say that if I was the AD I would try to bring Harsin back in some capacity. Make it clear to Avalos that there are others lined up to fill… Read more »
Who doesn’t like Hank? Big heart and an incredible competitor. Returning to a point I’ve often made, starting him as a true freshman did him little good. He needed a year watching the college game. He baked in a lot of bad habits. The Bronco OC coacing carousel did not help him. Certainly there were problems with the O-line protecting him. But good QBs and OCs find ways to manage that. As much as I hate to see a guy quit in mid season, it may work out well. He has two years of elegibility to improve his posture if… Read more »
Agree that he would have benefited from sitting as a Freshman. But I don’t think the O-Line or any other position group was lacking. The offensive scheme was complete trash. Like worst scheme in Division 1 football. I wasn’t sure about it the season before because I wasn’t convinced that an offensive coordinator could be so bad that players literally look like they are terrible in their position. Turns out that wasn’t the case at all. Our offensive line wasn’t that bad. Our wide receiver group was decent to good. Our running backs are top shelf. Tons of tight end… Read more »
To Boise; By nature I look for middle ground and compromise. What you’ve written is no exception. I watched play after play of five blockers blocking six defenders. Runners running into defenders in the backfield. Third and anything and Hank is going down. And I agree with your point about the talent available. Broncos get the best in the Mountain West every year. I think Koetter showed what a coach should do; take the personal available and run the offense around it. I don’t know of an organization that has succeeded otherwise. Huberis makes someone think they can mold people… Read more »
I agree that a head coach has to be able to give up some power to their coordinators. Or at least good coaches give them the leeway to implement their program. Where I fault Avalos is that it appears he just handed them the reigns and never checked in. Or he couldn’t look at an absolute abomination and recognize that it was not acceptable, not even for a middle school football team.
I wish I could have read Koetter’s mind. To know the things he didn’t say. As open as he was in the pressers, I always had the feeling there was much more. He has to preserve the dignity of the HC and the program. Likely the things we see and comment on are only the tip of the iceberg.
Bhonapha gone to Oregon State.
Let’s see, passed over for OC, didn’t like Hamdan, Hamdan didn’t like him, more money, or none of the above.
To Boise; I read where Pough wanted to run a fast moving offense; score quickly and get off the field. Avalos wanted him to use the clock more so the defense could stay off the field. True or not, I don’t know. Maybe it was Plough who started the rumor. Nevertheless those things should have been worked out long before Plough began looking for a house in the Treasure Valley. Looks as if the Broncos will be looking for a special teams and RB coach.
New coaching prospects? Kent Riddle, DJ Harper?
