BLOG: Nice to see Bronco Nation Again

Rick Worthington

 

This is just my own observation….

When I first moved to Idaho, Coach Pete had Boise State rolling. Kellen Moore was piling up the wins and the NFL was getting it’s share of Broncos to the professional ranks. I also rarely saw a car or truck without a Boise State flag or bumper sticker.

That was just a few years or so after the first Fiesta Bowl, and those were the days! Bronco Nation was a force.

I think some of that magic went away when Kellen went to the NFL, and again when Coach Pete headed for Seattle. This year, I think some of that Mojo is back. I’m not the only one who noticed that recently, Bronco games have just felt a little different. Coach Harsin said so himself during this weeks presser.

What was different? For starters, it was as loud as I can remember Albertsons Stadium ever being as the Broncos played Utah State. It was nearly as loud when Fresno State and BYU played in Boise earlier this year, but the Utah State game felt elevated somehow. It felt like the Kellen years!

Welcome back Bronco Nation. You may not have gone anywhere, but it sure was nice to feel you in the crowd on Saturday night. I’m looking forward to more of the same!

Marshall University, a respectable opponent

Marshall University, Friday night’s Boise State football opponent, is most famous for one thing: a plane crash that happened in 1970. You know about it if you saw the 2006 movie “We Are Marshall” or the documentary “Marshall University: Ashes to Glory” from 2000. The Marshall Thundering Herd football team was returning from a 17-14…

The weekend that could have been

Labor Day Weekend is upon us, and with it the opening game of the Boise State football season.  This year’s opener is on the road against Florida State.  They were supposed to play in Jacksonville, Florida at the home of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars.  Technically, it was a game being played on a neutral field. …

BLOG: All In on Hank Bachmeier

Rick Worthington BLOG: All In on Hank Bachmeier Just speaking for myself, I’m very happy with the Broncos decision to start true Freshman, Hank Bachmeier at Quarterback on Saturday against Florida State. Yes, he certainly lacks experience, but I think his ability to throw the football will show why Coach Harsin chose Bachmeier to be…
