New board looking good

The State Board of Education approved the new video board for Bronco Stadium, and the Broncos were taking "bids" up through Wednesday, which may signify the importance of getting the board installed for the 2013 season. Couple the board with a new-look North Endzone, a brand new logo on the blue turf, and Bronco Stadium is looking sharp as ever.

Alcohol coming to tailgaters

Bronco tailgaters may be saying goodbye to the ol' alcohol-in-the-red-solo-cup-trick. Boise City is considering allowing open alcohol containers on Bronco game days within a certain radius of the stadium. Noting that fans have been tailgating for years, the City believes keeping an eye on this new rule, rather than penalizing people, may be in the best interest of fans and the City.

Ebo Makinde is real fast

Boise State senior safety Ebo Makinde is lighting quick. The defensive speedster ran the 40 in 4.24 seconds on the team's spring testing day. Wide reciever Aaron Burks also ran an extremely fast time at 4.28 seconds.
