Nick Patti news: Maybe the next Kellen Moore, definitely the first Elite 11 camper 

Just talked to BSU commit Nick Patti. His plan is to come to Boise in January, be part of competition to replace Kellen Moore.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply


That brings the running total to four: Joe Southwick, Grant Hedrick, Jimmy Laughrea, and Patti, not to mention Michael Atkinson's darkhorse candidacy as exclusive QB sneak quarterback. In other Patti news, the high school senior-to-be earned a spot in Nike's Elite 11 Camp (with local boy and future Zoob Tanner Mangum), which is no easy feat. Patti was one of the 24 QBs chosen among more than 1,000 entrants, and he is the first Boise State QB recruit to receive the honor. Highlights of the Elite 11 Camp will be broadcast in August on ESPN. Lucky for Dish subscribers.

Legal recruiting: Chip Kelly is doing it wrong

And if the Internets are to believed, Kelly's job may be at stake because of it. 

I would guess Kelly is done, but this involves Phil Knight, the NCAA, and a sketchy middleman. Certainty is for madmen.less than a minute ago via Seesmic twhirl Favorite Retweet Reply


There is a good conversation going on in the FanShots about what a Kelly firing would mean to Coach Pete's coaching career, so feel free to speculate over there or speculate here in these comments. Goat sacrifices are also allowed.

It's funny because the Vandals are terrible at sports

Learfield Sports announced its Director's Cup Standings, which has Boise State at a WAC best and Idaho as an incomplete. This made my day.

Idaho was not in the rankings, even though almost every other Division I school is in the standings.

More links after the jump.

It's funny because no one remembers they shared the WAC title last year

A headline in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser: "With Boise State out of the way, UH can do a first: Repeat in the WAC." Oh yeah. I vaguely remember that now.
