Wascally Wabbit!

A thousand apologies for the lateness of this preview; I was working really hard at the office and doing Twitter things when suddenly I remembered I had a thing to do, and, well, here we are — IT’S CHASE CORD’S DAY

#10, Chase Cord, RS Junior, Quarterback

Stats

Height: 6’2”

Weight: 205

High School: Sunrise Mountain HS (Peoria, AZ)

How’d he get to the Blue™?

Chase may have actually started the trend of highly-sought-after recruits with Power 5 and Ivy League offers who eventually decided on Boise State. A 3-star QB recruit, Chase was courted by schools across the nation, but Utah State’s late proposal was so untoward that Chase committed to the Broncos the very next day.

Nickname

“Ripcord”

One of the baddest GI Joe characters, Ripcord was a High Altitude Low Opening skydiver who liked to take risks and go fast. Fitting, really.

Look-a-like

Our all-knowing comparison engine says he looks like a young Andy Griffith, and really...he kinda does?

Career Highlights

Look, I could tell you all about his eye-popping highschool stats. I could link videos of him doing work on cleanup behind Brett Rypien. But really, every QB dreams of starting and winning, right? Chase came within a whisker of getting the nod last fall, but after Hank Bachmeier got rattled hard, Chase came in and the machine chugged onward. Here’s a solid slice of Ripcord:

2020 Prospectus

After his close brush with starting last summer, only to be followed by another injury mid-season, there were a lot of whispers about Chase trying his luck on greener fields through the transfer portal.

Luckily for Boise State fans, Chase stayed home. Unfortunately for everyone, 2020 didn’t respect the loyalty, and now we’re waiting to see if winter or spring will bring us some more action.

As of this last week, however, the NCAA has said players like Chase have this as essentially a mulligan season, so we might have a shot at more Chase in our lives if he chooses YET AGAIN to stick it out through a rough situation.

Should we eventually get a season (or even next fall), having an experienced backup like Chase in the QB room is a huge boon for the offense. He provides a style change-up with his play-action ability, and he can push the other QB’s to perform at their best.

Is he on Twitter?

You’re darned tootin’ he is.

Completely made up fact

Chase Cord makes his own pomade from a secret family recipe, and has never been photographed with bad hair.
