A fellow from Kentucky (who hates exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!) picks San Diego State as the MWC Team to Beat in roundball next season. But Utah State is "the next Boise State." *cough*

Rocky Mountain's Jake Knight...a former Oregon State commit turned shot-putter at Auburn is returning to the Treasure Valley to play for the hometown Broncos. Heckuva player to land in our laps.

Conference realignment has cooled. When it heats up where will BSU be positioned? Where should they go? Who should invite them? What is best for the Broncos?

Another metric for the 2015 Bronco defense

Phil Steele comes up with a "percent of tackles returning" projection that places Boise State at #17 in the nation in that category (77.01% of tackles returning). He takes a team's total tackles from 2014, the number of tackles returning defenders recorded, and then figures the percentage. Our season-opener foe (UW) is listed at #108, Colorado State at #44, New Mexico at #51, Utah State at #70, and BYU at #100 (eclipsed by #95 Idaho!). Other Mountain Division opponents: Air Force, #117; Wyoming, #121. Lookin' good, Broncos!
