Wyoming memories

Wyoming memories

Boise State today plays the University of Wyoming in Laramie. Josh Allen, who last year was Wyoming’s quarterback, is now with the Buffalo Bills in the NFL and is by most accounts is doing very well. I like Wyoming. Despite it bordering Idaho, I’ve only been to Wyoming four times. Three of those were trips…MORE

BSU v OSU = A Family Rivalry

BSU v OSU = A Family Rivalry

I have a sister-in-law named Tami who lives in Tennessee.  She graduated from Oklahoma State University in the 1980’s, and this is why Boise State, my alma mater, must defeat Oklahoma State this weekend in football.  It’s not going to be the easiest thing to do, I’m guessing.  Oklahoma State is a member of the…MORE

What’s in a name?

What’s in a name?

I thought I was original.  Not quite, though.  On Saturday, the Boise State Broncos play the University of Connecticut Huskies at Albertson’s Stadium.  It’s a late game.  Kickoff isn’t until 8:15pm. I generally refer to the team as “Connecticut”.  A lot of other people call it “UConn”.  I’m not a huge fan of nicknames, cliches…MORE

BRONCO SEASON IS BACK… WITH ALL THE ALLITERATION!

BRONCO SEASON IS BACK… WITH ALL THE ALLITERATION!

Look!  It’s football season, and I’m blogging again.  It’s almost as if I wait for football to start and do little else the rest of the year.  Not so.  I do watch baseball. Anyway, game one for the Boise State Broncos this season is similar to last year’s opener, in that it’s the same opponent.…MORE

Memorial Day thoughts

Memorial Day thoughts

Last night, my son graduated from Capital High School.  That’s why my in-laws are in town.  Two came to Boise from Warrenton, Virginia, and two from Fairfax, Virginia.  Both towns are just minutes from Washington, DC. I recommend that every American visit Washington, DC if it’s within your means to do so.  See the Capitol,…MORE

What Mom Taught Me

What Mom Taught Me

Mother’s Day is this Sunday.  The most important thing my mother ever taught me was how to censor myself.  I don’t mean that she told me not to swear.  She did, I’m sure, but it wasn’t a subject that came up very often.  We weren’t a swearing family.  Swearing was something that some people did…MORE

Effective Multi-tasking

Effective Multi-tasking

I’ve multi-tasked my entire life.  I never thought of it that way, but technically that’s what I do.  Despite what doctors recommend, I’ve always read myself to sleep.  When I was a kid, probably from age two to eighteen, my mother would check on me before she went to bed, and every night, she would…MORE

Marshall University, a respectable opponent

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

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

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…

Can Money Be Used as a Weapon?

Can Money Be Used as a Weapon?

On Monday, August 5th, we learned about China’s retaliation to tweets and threats made the prior August 1st by President Trump.  Trump tweeted: “…on September 1st, putting a small additional Tariff of 10% on the remaining 300 Billion Dollars of goods and products coming from China into our Country. This does not include the 250…
