SCOTT SLANT: On replacing a decorated individual

Presented by RIB SHACK BARBECUE & CATERING. Wednesday, February 3, 2021. It’s going to be a quiet National Letter of Intent Day, as most of Boise State’s heavy lifting was done in December.

SCOTT SLANT: Reinforcements needed

Presented by VETERANS PLUMBING. Tuesday, February 2, 2021. So much happened in January that this has kind of snuck up on us. Wednesday is National Letter of Intent Day in college football.

SCOTT SLANT: Back from the big detour

Presented by RIB SHACK BARBECUE & CATERING. Monday, February 1, 2021. There was nowhere to go but up after the thrashing Boise State took at Colorado State last Wednesday.

SCOTT SLANT: First in line (just win, baby)

Presented by BBSI BOISE. Tuesday, January 26, 2021. It won’t matter if Boise State doesn’t sweep Colorado State in Fort Collins this week—a difficult task against a team that just took down Utah State.

SCOTT SLANT: Tim Keane & the sack data

Presented by RIB SHACK BARBECUE & CATERING. Monday, January 25, 2021. Boise State has another “Davis guy” on the staff (and a one-time Yotes guy, for that matter) with the hiring of Tim Keane as offensive line coach on Friday. This is a critical position. Just ask any Broncos fan. But really, it is. What…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Lessons to be learned

Presented by RIB SHACK BARBECUE & CATERING. Friday, January 22, 2021. Future opponents of Boise State will be racking up the video from the first half of Wednesday’s Fresno State game, do you think?
