SCOTT SLANT: What else can happen?

SCOTT SLANT: What else can happen?

Presented by VETERANS PLUMBING. Thursday, February 14, 2019. Boise State went almost 6½ minutes without a field goal down the stretch Wednesday night at Fresno State. In fact, the Broncos made only four buckets in the final 11 minutes of the game. So it was a minor miracle that they were still able to take…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Fresno State is capable of cooling things off

SCOTT SLANT: Fresno State is capable of cooling things off

Presented by GREENWOOD’S SKI HAUS. Wednesday, February 13, 2019. Boise State is in a sticky situation at Fresno State tonight. The Broncos really, really need to win this game, but how much better can they expect to be on the road versus their home game against the Bulldogs, a 63-53 loss last month? That was…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Standings are deceiving for the Broncos

SCOTT SLANT: Standings are deceiving for the Broncos

Presented by VETERANS PLUMBING. Tuesday, February 12, 2019. It’s crunch time in the Mountain West. The top five finishers in the standings earn coveted first-round byes in the conference tournament next month. Nevada, Fresno State and Utah State are basically guaranteed three of them. That leaves six teams realistically battling for those other two spots.…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: An explosive respite in a challenging winter

Presented by GREENWOOD’S SKI HAUS. Monday, February 11, 2019. First, Alex Hobbs hit a three-pointer. Then Marcus Dickinson made a three. Then Justinian Jessup. And then Derrick Alston. When Alston drained a second trey, Boise State was up 15-0 and was off to the races in 105-57 romp over San Jose State Saturday afternoon in…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Stop the late-night madness

SCOTT SLANT: Stop the late-night madness

Presented by CLEARVIEW CLEANING. Friday, February 8, 2019. Not to pile on, because I’m not the first one to broach this subject this week. But isn’t it time we did away with 9 p.m. tipoffs on weeknights? We knew it would be bad in Taco Bell Arena Wednesday, but a crowd count of 3,200? (Props…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Reaching the recruiting mountaintop

SCOTT SLANT: Reaching the recruiting mountaintop

Presented by LOUIE’S PIZZA & ITALIAN RESTAURANT. Thursday, February 7, 2019. Just two years ago, there were National Letter of Intent Day extravaganzas, with college football fans—at least the recruiting junkies—devouring info on all the new signees. Now that December’s “early signing day” is established, the first Wednesday in February has become anticlimactic. Boise State…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Two middling MW programs meet up

SCOTT SLANT: Two middling MW programs meet up

Presented by CLEARVIEW CLEANING. Wednesday, February 6, 2019. Boise State may have lost by 20 points at Nevada last Saturday, but I would venture to say if the Broncos play the same way tonight versus UNLV, they will win. If they shoot well, score in the 70’s and take care of the ball, they’ll probably…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Call this schedule a ‘rough draft’

SCOTT SLANT: Call this schedule a ‘rough draft’

Presented by LOUIE’S PIZZA & ITALIAN RESTAURANT. Tuesday, February 5, 2019. It’s a fluid document, but at lease we know which week is which (a lot earlier than normal, I might add). All 12 Boise State football games this season are listed for Saturdays, and 12 kickoff times are “TBA.” But it’s unlikely any of…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Pack has one of those games

SCOTT SLANT: Pack has one of those games

Presented by CLEARVIEW CLEANING. Monday, February 4, 2019. Boise State didn’t play that badly at Nevada Saturday. The Broncos shot 46 percent from the field and 43 percent from three-point land. They were outrebounded by just two and kept their turnover count manageable at 11. But when Nevada has it going the way it did…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Kellen Moore’s amazing NFL fast track

SCOTT SLANT: Kellen Moore’s amazing NFL fast track

Presented by LOUIE’S PIZZA & ITALIAN RESTAURANT. Friday, February 1, 2019. Well, the question now becomes: will we ever see Kellen Moore wearing college colors again—Boise State or whatever? Dallas made it official Thursday, naming perhaps the most beloved Bronco ever as its offensive coordinator. What could be down the pike for Moore? Jerry Jones,…MORE
