Anybody who tells you that they know who the starting quarterback will be this fall for Boise State is either lying or trying to sell you something. That said, here’s your starting quarterback this fall at Boise State:

#19, Hank Bachmeier, FR, QB

Boise State University

Stats

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 202

How’d he get to The BlueTM?

ON THE WINGS OF A THOUSAND ANGELS, ANOINTED BY KELLEN MOORE, RIDING ON A WHITE HORSE. THE THUNDER OF TRUMPETS AND THE POUNDING OF DRUMS SIGNIFIED THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW ERA OF QUARTERBACKING.

Ok, now that that is out of our system: basically every college football program with a pulse (and even Colorado State) offered this dude. He’s got the film, he’s got the measurables, he’s got the hair. He’s also got the grades, drawing attention from Ivy League football schools looking for a smart quarterback.

After taking unofficial visits to a myriad of schools as far back as 2016, Hank finally took the fated official trip to Boise on October 6. While nobody can remember exactly what happened in that game (San Diego who? Never heard of em.) Hank saw a team that he wanted to make sweet orchestral music with.

Career highlights

2019 Prospectus

We are all well-aware of the fact that no starter has been announced, and that Chase Cord is likely gonna be the guy, barring injury setback. Boise State’s offense asks a lot of the quarterback, and many fans could probably quote you the rarity of seeing a freshman quarterback (aside from The Great One). All the logic and discernment aside, as a whole Bronco Nation seems convinced Hank Bachmeier is The Next One.

The recent changes to redshirting rules and Boise State’s lack of an incumbent starter combine to make a decent opportunity for Hank to get some shots as a freshman. If he takes to it naturally, it’s could force some hard decisions for the coaching staff, but it might also get him a taste of the game speed while preserving his redshirt year, preparing for a longer starting run.

Our boring prediction is that Hank sees the field, but in a limited backup capacity late in games. The coaching staff will want to see what they have, and give a young QB a taste of what’s to come if he can step it up for next season, but not risk it all on freshman.

Our exciting prediction is that Hank is the second coming of Kellen Moore, and is awarded the starting job immediately, leading us to 3 Fiesta bowls and then a College Football Playoff appearance as a senior. These dizzying heights prove too much for the PAC-12, and they finally invite us to join, making room by kicking out Colorado.

Despite the buzz, hopes, and dreams, we still have no idea who the starter will be, or if the coaches even see enough to let Hank on the field this year. But what kind of fans would be be if we let reality stand in the way of a good rumor frenzy?

Is he on Twitter?

Yes, but he’s busy preparing for the starting job. Don’t expect a ton of tweets.

Completely made up fact

Hank never has to comb or style his hair. It’s just like that all the time.
