Rypien Hopes to Improve Game

In an interview with the press, freshman QB, Brett Rypien revealed what he is doing to improve on an already impressive freshman debut. He’s been watching film of all the games he played in and identifying areas he could improve, such as foot work, deep passes, and providing his receivers with hobo-spider-trap gloves.

I know it’s unfair to compare him with the greatest freshman of all time, Mr. Kellen Moore, but we can look at another freshman who started this year. (Welcome to the discussion, Jake Browning of Washington.) Browning started in all 11 games and had 2671 passing yards, 16 TD, 10 INT, and a rating of 139.9, compared to Rypien, who had 2,973 yards, 17 TD, 7 INT, and a rating of 137.5 in two fewer games.

Also, Jake Browning does a flappy-arm clap to call for the snap, which just looks weird.

I’m glad to have Rypien on The Blue!

In Case You Didn’t Know…

The Arbiter posted an article yesterday informing everyone that Boise State will be playing in the Poinsettia Bowl against Northern Illinois. You’re welcome!

Thompson Clutch Playing Helps BSU Men Beat LMU

Mikey Thompson converted a free-throw on a made basket to give Boise State the lead against LMU with 12.7 seconds left. The Lions then missed a three-pointer and Boise State came away with a win at Taco Ballerina. James Webb III had a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds, and he can probably sing well, too!

Next up for Men’s BB—Oregon on Saturday. Wear a football helmet after the game, guys!
