Good morning, Bronco fans. I hope you all slept well knowing that Jeremy Childs will indeed be back for his junior season. I know I did. I even had a dream in which Childs was catching touchdowns from a two-headed, Bush Hamdan-Nick Lomax quarterback robot. It was kind of weird.
The Statesman reports that Childs has been suspended from school for one semester for plagiarism--a sentence that could have been worse.
Childs originally was suspended from school for a year because of plagiarism, said Jared Duren, Childs' brother and a former Boise State football player.
Through two appeals, the penalty was reduced to one semester, according to Duren, who said he talks to Childs every day.
Childs set a Bronco record for catches last year, and he was a first-team All-WAC selection. Having him back is a great sign for Bronco fans, especially with the Hawaii Bowl debacle still fresh in our mouths.
The receiving corps for BSU should be great again with Childs back. This way, whoever nails down the starting QB gig will have a way easier time of things.
