Broncos Win National Championship -- Again

No, you didn't read that headline incorrectly, and, yes, I know this is a sports blog.

But I am proud of my alma mater for once again proving that Boise State University is an institution which is more than just a good-looker in a pretty blue dress.

The famous Talkin' Broncos successfully defended their 2011-2012 National Championship title in the Speech and Debate tourney, held last week in St. Louis, MO, beating out 88 other schools to take the title. The Broncos also won the National Championship in 2011 and 2005, and was runner-up in 2007 and 2009 in the biennial tournament.

While other schools might posture and self-declare their academic prowess, Boise State quietly goes about proving its value through achievement. The exposure provided by such manifestations helps all athletic programs in their recruiting efforts. Witness the article in the March 20 Idaho Statesman about local (Rocky Mountain High) standout defensive back Khalil Oliver's verbal pledge to sign with the Broncos next year: "'I decided that BSU was the place for me because with their academics they're second in the APR ratings,' Oliver said. . . Boise State was tied for second in the NCAA's APR rankings in 2012 . . . [measuring] eligibility, retention and graduation for each student-athlete."

Way to go, Talkin' Broncos. Take note, PAC-12.
