Wake up, Bronco Nation: Boise State football links and things, 8-8-11

Full pads are here!

For the first time of the year, the team will be in pads and everyone will be together this morning. If the defensive line has really been a menace without pads, will that continue with pads? Or will the offensive line finally start delivering some hits?

Also, Matt Miller has been making some plays in the newcomer practice and we've even had some Jeremy Ioane sightings with picks on back to back days. Gabe Linehan also continues to build expectations. Check out the full practice report for all  the details.

The details of Texas' Longhorn Network contract with ESPN are out

Is this the beginning of the end for the Big 12? Clay Travis makes some excellent points about the foreshadowing in the details. This contract opens up so many questions on where ESPN's rightful place should be in sports. 

Mark Richt didn't realize Kellen Moore was going to still be around this year?

Oh, it was just a joke. You are funny man Coach Richt. But seriously, players at Boise State are automatically granted 5 years of eligibility. Just ask Ian Johnson.
