Jeremy McNichols confident heading into year 3

He of the boulder arms speaks of how he has improved going into this year.

Offense Clicking already

As I may (definitely) have mentioned before (many times), the Boise State offense should be very good this year (like...very, very good).

In case you missed it, you can catch up on all the sights and sounds of day 2 of fall camp here.

Also, here are two awesome write-ups on DE Sam McCaskill and LB Joe Martarano

Moving on to Broncos in Rio!

As mentioned in previous posts, Boise State has 6 current and former athletes competing in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro.

Here’s a peek at some of the social media surrounding their participation in the event. Very cool to see!

Jordin Andrade, representing Cape Verde in the 400m hurdle:

Isabella Amado, representing Panama in gymnastics:

Let the Games begin ❤️ #PANAMA #Rio2016 #IsaenRio

George Ivanov, representing Bulgaria in wrestling

He doesn’t have any live media from the opening ceremonies, but there is this from yesterday. He’s the assistant wrestling coach at Maryville.

Courtney McGregor, representing New Zealand in gymnastics

There is not current media from her, but there is this profile on her.

Kurt Felix, representing Grenada in decathlon

I unfortunately was also unable to find current media on Kurt Felix, but here is what your rooting interest looks like

Graham DeLaet, representing Canada in golf

Again, no live media from the Opening Ceremonies, but this is Graham

And he’s actually been an extremely successful professional golfer. You can read up on him here.

And speaking of extremely successful professional athletes from BSU

Here’s a fun comparison chart of Boise State compared to other Big 12 expansion candidates

Actually this graph is out of date as Boise State alum, Jeron ‘Hitman’ Johnson was adopted from the free agent ranks by the Kansas City Chiefs just yesterday

Miscellinkeous

In the same vein as yesterday's random link, I have some more bad news. Apparently we are literally living in a lie.
