NCAA Basketball: Fresno State at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

I told the builder I did not want carpeted steps.

So he gave a blank stair.

Bronco gymnasts earn a bunch of awards

The Broncos have been good all year. And cleaning up the awards is no shocker. This just adds to the already crowded award shelf for these accomplished ladies. The Broncos were either outright champions, or co-champions, in the respective apparatus. Not surprising either. Congratulations to the Broncos and all that they have done throughout the year.

Bronco swim & dive did all right as well

Swimming and diving are events that, truly, seems to be no instances of parity. And this was no different. The Broncos finished 36th, which is a program-best. In a sport where Olympic-level athletes, like Katie Ledecky, go to where they are “supposed” to go (like Stanford) it can be difficult to break through. But the Broncos had a respectful outing and that’s the most we could all hope for.

Bronco softball takes Colorado State softball series over weekend

This is truly a remarkable turnaround for the Broncos. One year after winning only 14 games all season, the Broncos are a resounding 19-6 (2-1 in MWC). I keep bringing this up because of just how crazy this year has been for the softballers. I hope they keep it up and are able to take the Mountain West Conference. Now that would be the frosting on an already awesome Boise State athletic year.

Bronco men’s tennis drops to UC Irvine

This just is not the men’s year. The Broncos are a dismal 2-16 on the season. Yuck. There are a lot of things to learn in a loss, so I would assume the Broncos are learning lots this year.

Reminder Bronco MBB play at Illinois today

And, boy howdy, that is going to be a heck of a matchup. Illinois is technically without a head coach. Curious if that is going to impact the game at all. Going to be honest: I kind of hope so as I would love to have the Broncos make it to the next round of the NIT.

Coach Leon Rice makes an appearance in this video

And it is quite an embarrassing mix-up for ESPN especially given the sensitive subject matter.

The overall video itself is quite touching and sheds a pretty cool spotlight. I understand that everyone makes mistakes but when you are the Worldwide Leader in Sports, and commanding huge fees to be included in cable/satellite packages, you can do a quick Google search to get the correct Larry Eustachy.
