SCOTT SLANT: The last 2 Coach Pete recruits

Presented by GREENWOOD’S SKI HAUS. Friday, November 15, 2019. Almost six years after Chris Petersen left Boise State for Washington, there are two of his recruits still active for the Broncos, and they’ll get as loud a welcome as anyone on Senior Night before the New Mexico game Saturday. David Moa committed November 21, 2013.…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: ‘Perception-itis’ as it pertains to the Lobos

Presented by ADVANCED VISION THERAPY CENTER. Thursday, November 14, 2019. The term Boise State coach Bryan Harsin coined last week when recapping San Jose State was “perception-itis.” Many didn’t want to give the Spartans credit for the massive strides they’ve made this year. That problem has popped up in the past with New Mexico. What’s…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Don’t give up on the run

Presented by BBSI BOISE. Wednesday, November 13, 2019. I started putting this together for Sunday Sports Extra expecting to find something not so pretty, comparing rushing from Boise State’s wide receivers to that of the running backs since the beginning of October. Over the last five games, the wideouts have been strong, averaging 10.6 yards…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Guys who aren’t ‘Twittiots’

Presented by ADVANCED VISION THERAPY CENTER. Tuesday, November 12, 2019. Boise State coach Bryan Harsin probably should have left well enough alone Monday. But since he didn’t, addressing the griping on Twitter and coining the now-viral term “Twittiots,” here we go. I think the best perspective comes from former Broncos, especially those from a 50-3…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Giant exhale on the Blue

Presented by LOUIE’S PIZZA & ITALIAN RESTAURANT. Monday, November 11, 2019. It could be considered a “fantastic finish” in the Albertsons Stadium history book—a missed field goal in overtime by Wyoming to send Boise State storming onto the field with a crucial 20-17 victory. But it was so unnecessary that it got that far. These…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: The 2019 attendance phenomenon

Presented by CLEARVIEW CLEANING. Friday, November 8, 2019. What is happening in the stands at Albertsons Stadium this season? Boise State is averaging 34,105 fans per game in a year when the home schedule was missing marquee opponents.

SCOTT SLANT: Awaiting the full Bronco arsenal

Presented by MAZ-TECH AUTOMOTIVE. Thursday, November 7, 2019. There’s only one ball to go around. Boise State wishes there were at least two, because it has a pair of wide receivers who generally make something happen any time they touch it. And with Wyoming coming to the blue turf Saturday night with a reputation for…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: The Group of 5’s group of five

Presented by CLEARVIEW CLEANING. Wednesday, November 6, 2019. From a Group of 5 perspective, the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season weren’t too surprising Tuesday night. The new official pecking order in the race for a New Year’s Six bowl berth goes five deep, with Cincinnati-Memphis-Boise State followed by Navy-SMU. What’s interesting is…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: AVB’s ‘Aha!’ game

Presented by MAZ-TECH AUTOMOTIVE. Tuesday, November 5, 2019. The player who coach Bryan Harsin seems to be the most excited about coming out of the win at San Jose State is Andrew Van Buren. The sophomore running back was actually the Broncos’ leading rusher after the woebegone first half and had 85 yards on just…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: A Bronco fact not to forget

Presented by CLEARVIEW CLEANING. Monday, November 4, 2019. Before going into the idiosyncrasies of Boise State’s 52-42 comeback win at San Jose State, let’s look at the Broncos’ ever-underappreciated big picture. Saturday night they clinched another winning season, their 22nd straight—the longest streak in the FBS. Maybe you’re saying, “Hey, what if they go 7-7?”…MORE
