We made it.

Boise State fall practice begins tomorrow, signaling the end of the offseason and the beginning of a new era of Bronco football. Our football hibernation is over for the summer, and we can at last move on to more important things - things like the running back depth chart and the kicking crisis and what Nick Patti had for lunch. Football is back, friends. And we are whole again.

If you slept through the past seven months, let me get you caught up on what you missed.

  • Kellen Moore is gone, and with him, most of the defense and some good parts of the offense.
  • OC Brent Pease is gone, and with him, several other long-time Bronco position coaches.
  • No word on who Boise State's new starting quarterback will be. But it never hurts to ask, every hour on the hour.
  • Boise State is a six-point underdog in its season opener against Michigan State.

The offseason might have been more notable for what didn't happen. There was no conference realigning, no NCAA infractions, and no new uniforms. While the rest of the college football world spun wildly around playoffs and sadly around Penn State, the Bronco football world took a siesta. If you remember the hullabaloo around Boise State's summer decision to stick with a decision it made a summer ago, you get a sense for what kind of offseason it was.

What was the offseason like for you?

I've had worse (every offseason pre-Internet). I've had better (the ones where Boise State was a national championship contender). This offseason was quieter, calmer than others. That's never a bad thing.

I would expect that things will get quite a bit louder now. The Coaches Poll came out yesterday. The fall scrimmage is in two weeks. A six-toed man could very nearly count the days to Boise State vs. Michigan State on his fingers and toes.

Football is here. Games are coming. Answers are on their way. As usual, the waiting is the hardest part, but at least it's over now.
