MWCConnection Previews Boise State
I understand Jeremy Mauss has to be unbiased since he represents all of the Mountain West Conference, so don't expect the same homerism all of us here would have. I didn't listen to the whole thing, so maybe someone with more time can break down some of his talking points in the comments. If you want to save time, I'd skip the intro song altogether (about 2:12). He starts out talking about cost of attendance in the first segment, then his guest joins around the 8-minute mark.
Drew already posted this over the weekend, but the Statesman includes a highlight video. He looks like he'd be hard to bring down once the engine gets going. He's also pretty good at sealing blocks on the edge for inside passes, which is probably what some of the coaches are looking at for TE passes and screens. Fits right into the gameplan Drinkwitz is looking to implement.
One question I have, though: Does his cost of attendance have allowances for bacon-wrapped churros? Big men need meat!
