Wake up, Bronco Nation: Boise State football links and things, 8-21-12

Kicking game focus is on shorter field goals

There's been a renewed focus on the kicking game and it was by design that no field goal over 40 yards was attempted in the scrimmage on Saturday. The coaching staff is putting an emphasis on the shorter field goals and even discourages attempting longer ones on their own since they don't want the kickers to wear out their legs. Longer than 40 yards? Petersen plans to go for it.

Michigan State has something to prove this season

They're trying to get to the Rose Bowl and rise above the Big 10 powers of Ohio State and Michigan. They aren't overlooking Boise State though. Quarterback Andrew Maxwell commented on the different looks of Boise State's defense and how there is no set base.
