Commitment issues

Don't look now, but Boise State has lost another verbal commitment from its 2014 recruiting class. This time, the waffling goes to tight end Dimitri Flowers who decommited from the Broncos and committed to Oklahoma, which must be sweet, sweet revenge for head coach Bob Stoops. Was this his plan all along?

At this rate, Boise State will be giving players away on signing day.

Meet Boise State basketball's pushers

Pusher is literally one of the new names that coach Leon Rice has come up with for the positions on the Boise State basketball team. He is crazy - crazy interesting.

Gone are point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward and center - traditional basketball position names. Now the Broncos have a trigger, a gunner, a pusher, a pitcher and a crash.

The first game is tomorrow, so keep your eyes out for more basketball previews today.

Chris Petersen is rolling in dough, highest-paid non-AQ coach

Petersen makes $2.15 million dollars per season, which is equivalent to $10.5 million dollars if you're spending it in Boise.

What would you think if we changed the name of the morning links?

There's a poll at the end of this post. Your feedback is welcome, and suggestions are encouraged.
