In particular one thing he talked about was the play at the end of the game when Southwick slid 2 yards short of the first down on third-and-ten. Prince says they have been stressing to Southwick that he needs to slide and not take unnecessary hits and that's exactly what Southwick did. Prince said it's on the coaching staff to teach those exceptions to the rule. He also talked about getting his play calls in quicker to give the offense time to make reads at the line of scrimmage.
Good article from Chadd Cripe on junior college transfer Demarcus Lawrence. He's rare in that he has 3 years of eligibility left. Lawrence is originally from South Carolina and had interest from Tennessee and Mississippi but decided to sign with Boise State after Coach Pete made an in home visit to his parents.
Yesterday morning, news broke that Notre Dame was leaving the Big East for the ACC in all sports except hockey and football. While this seems like another blow to an already weakened Big East, Dan Wetzel makes some good points on why this is good for them. As part of the deal the ACC agreed to a $50 million buyout for its members. That means that no one is leaving the ACC for the Big 12. That also means that the ACC won't need to raid the Big East to replace anyone. This essentially ends realignment now. The only threats to the Big East now is really the Big 12. And that could actually be good for Boise State if the Big 12 wants them.
They still want to try to play as an independent in football, but that is going to become increasingly difficult in coming years. Notre Dame locked up 5 games a year with ACC teams as part of their new deal. Idaho will not have that kind of cooperation.
