Wake up, Bronco Nation: Boise State football links and things, 12-20-11

Boise State beats Fresno State 70-63, extends home winning streak to 15 games

Boise State was able to get off the schnide on Monday night partially due to a spark from seldom used reserve, Tre' Nichols. Ryan Watkins recorded a double double with a team high 18 points and 11 rebounds. Boise State takes on Iowa at Iowa on Thursday night. Hopefully this doesn't lead to Mikrino getting into it with Hawkeye fans again.

Boise State lands JC defensive end Demarcus Lawrence

Demarcus picked Boise State over Tennessee, Kansas State, Mississippi and South Florida. He apparently has three years to play three seasons as he already redshirted one year. He will be signed a LOI this week and will join the team in January. Hopefully he can plug right in and be just as successful as Tyrone Crawford has been.

Craig James has officially left ESPN to run for the Senate (HT: Trapperpk)

Well here's the upside of Craig James running for office, he's out at ESPN. The downside would be if he actually won. But for now, we can focus on not having him calling games and look forward to the fall where he will be tied up with a campaign that should last into November. Hooray football!

Brent Pease has had discussions with Houston about it's head coaching vacancy

That little nugget was buried in Cripe's notes yesterday. Is it too much to ask for that we go one season without losing a coordinator? Also Jake Van Ginkel and Jay Ajayi didn't "deserve" to make the trip according to Coach Petersen. Hopefully that's not an issue.

Arizona State suspends defensive end Junior Onyeali

Onyeali is a part time player for the Sun Devils so it's to be seen how much this will affect them. Apparently Onyeali and coach Dennis Erickson got into a verbal altercation in practice. My money is on Onyeali saying something to the effect of "You can't do anything to me! You're just a lame duck!" and Erickson suspended him just to teach him a lesson.
