What’s smarter than a talking parrot?

A spelling bee.

Athlon Sports ranks this weekend’s watchability

You’ll have to click to find out where they ranked Boise State/Florida State. What with the tropical storm headed towards Florida right now, we do risk that game not even happening. Fingers crossed!

Guaranteed payouts for non-conference games

This is a USA Today article that lists them for the 2019 season. What’s annoying about this one is it is a graphic. So you can’t ‘Control+F’ to find whatever school you want to see. This seems to also include games that are just, essentially, home-home series such as the Boise State/BYU series (Boise State is getting $225,000 but I assume that’s just to more to offset travel costs, etc). Some fun nuggets to get from this.

You like gambling?

That spread has been closing in for the last little bit. People are see the Broncos as a team that could pull it out. I suppose we shall see.

Boise State / Cincinnati series postponed

Who know if the two teams will ever play each other. My oldest will be 19 when this game would be played. That’s a ways out.

Bronco MBB release their schedule

This has the feel of a confidence-building schedule more than anything. Some easier matchups to get the squad warmed up. Some good matchups for sure (BYU) but some stinkers (take a look at the home opener).

Leighton Vander Esch is a spokesman now!!

Get it?! Because he’s from Idaho and Idaho is famous for potatoes!!!
