Notes and Wild Speculation:
  • Not much movement on the offensive side of the ball.
  • Finley is still out with this broken ankle. Still a bummer, but hopefully he is able to get that under control.
  • DJ Dean still behind Sperbeck, but did not get into the UNLV game. In fact, I went through the Boise State participation reports for the entire year and, apparently hasn't seen time this year. I could have sworn I had heard his name called during a game, but I guess not. He has entered the realm of myth.
  • Coach Harsin basically confirmed in this week's press conference that Turner is gone for the year (he had used the term "most likely"). Still due to the academic eligibility issue. This was Turner's final year. Good luck, Antoine, in your future endeavors and I hope you find nothing but success.
  • Guess who is back in the lineup! Jabril Frazier. Took his second spot behind STUD end Correa. (I feel as though STUD is my favorite position name for the Broncos.) Good to see bodies actually coming back from injury. 
  • Vallejo is still on the chart. However Harsin was not committal as far as Vallejo making his appearance. Martarano has been more than able to hold down the spot, but having Vallejo back would be invaluable.
  • Maston was on the depth chart last week, however he was not on the UNLV trip due to disciplinary reasons. Hopefully he paid his due and will be ready to dominate.
  • Deayon still out with his knee injury. He was done after the Utah State game, and was estimated four weeks. This would mark four weeks and would like to see him back for the Air Force game. Though, since the next teams are both triple option, these may actually be "good" games for him to be out and resting.
  • Dylan Sumner-Gardner still gone from his ankle injury.
  • I had guessed, two weeks in a row, that Horton would start. So far I am 1-2 as Ford actually got the start in the UNLV game. I am going to guess that Horton wins it back this week and we see Ford in a heavy rotation.
  • Yes. Deayon is still listed as a punt returner. Not sure why.
  • Rausa:

Your Turn

Anything particularly alarming? Any matchups you want to see for New Mexico and Air Force? Everyone have positive thoughts for knees and ankles over the next few weeks as cut blocks are going to be... plentiful. Have I mentioned that I hate when Boise State has to play against triple option teams? Because I hate it when Boise State has to play against triple option teams. Quite a bit.
