When is a car not a car?
When it is turning into a driveway.
A possibility for the staff to find some talent. This should be a rich talent pool of up-and-coming kids looking for an opportunity on a college roster. A bunch of other schools are going to be there as well, so the competition is going to be fierce, so coaches being able to pounce on a guy will be critical.
The no. 34 seed Brian Humphreys from Washougal, Washington upset the no. 2 seed Kevin Murphy to advance (Humphreys beat Jake Quast in the next round). Which, if you think about it, is pretty awesome because Mr. Murphy is a JUNIOR at Oregon State and Mr. Humphreys is going to be a true freshman headed into Boise State next fall. Let us all root for Mr. Humphreys!
Good luck to Sam Wicks, Brittany Aoyama and Emma Chard. They are going to try to be some of the best swimmers in the world.
I am probably going to dip bacon in syrup tomorrow for breakfast.
Former Bronco James Webb III goes undrafted
What a bummer it is.
And that will do it. James Webb leaves Boise State a year early and goes undrafted.— B.J. Rains (@BJRains) June 24, 2016
Which means that former Bronco Roberto Bergesen remains the last player from Boise State to get drafted into the NBA.
Mr. Webb will have his opportunity to play for a team. He’ll hit the summer league and get some work done to get a free agent deal and make a roster. Not much can be done after that.
I still fully believe that he will get paid to play basketball. Just what team, and how much, will be decided.
I am still not sure how Boise State has the highest cost of attendance figure at $5,100. How is San Diego State or Hawaii not higher? This still blows my mind. What is interesting is that Nevada will still not pay the full stipend, but a smaller number. Their prerogative I suppose. On the outset it certainly seems that the higher number is more enticing for a kid. Last I checked $5,100 goes quite a ways in Boise.
Interesting that he is a “pure guard” in the NFL when he was left tackle at Boise State. I sure hope he is able to stay healthy, and on the field, so he can continue to be a force.
Boise State is going to be doing this thing for that one game that was apparently a big deal. Or, whatever.
