  1. CA proposes no tackle FB before HS

    Here are just a couple of links, but there is so much research on this it is hard to ignore, and sad anyone would ignore it given the stakes. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/11/171127091135.htm http://www.espn.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/20751923/in-wake-new-research-brain-expert-says-think-children-play-tackle-football
  2. CA proposes no tackle FB before HS

    Critical brain development is occurring at these ages, making hits to the head all the more dangerous and impactful to the long term development of the brain. This has been researched pretty extensively.
  3. CA proposes no tackle FB before HS

    If you watch that documentary about youth football in Texas (Netflix) you’ll realize that safety is of little concern to coaches and parents. You’d think these were high school kids and not 10 year olds. Across the nation parents are directing their kids to other sports. I love the sport, but when my kid decided he didn’t want to play football anymore it didn’t break my heart.
  4. Congrats to Menzies, first win vs t25 team.

    UNLV finally coming around. They are going to be a very dangerous team going forward.
  5. For those that still think the Blue is a gimmick

    I heard that interview, pretty cool. It made Boise State stand out when he was mulling over interest from SEC and ACC teams.
  6. Larry Eustachy put on leave

    Idaho’s coach has done pretty well under tough circumstances, maybe you can poach him.
  7. Finally, someone that can beat Alabama

    He’s from California, so I wonder why Stanford didn’t go after him? There he could have had the best of both worlds, world class academics and top notch football.
  8. Larry Eustachy put on leave

    There’s being a tough, hard nosed coach and then there’s Eustachy. There’s a line that can be crossed, and he obviously crossed it.
  9. San Jose st

    Getting rid of Thompson and SJSU would both be huge steps forward for this conference.
  10. OP - MW needs to keep options open

    Wow, that would be a freaking terrible idea. We should be thinking quite a bit bigger than that. The AAC is the only G5 conference we should be arranging deals like this with.

    Watching this video made me sick to my stomach.
  12. Leon at it again. Trying to sell out UNLV

    Winning the WAC in any sport was no great feat. I was dumbfounded by the Bronco fans that kept making excuses for him. Graham was kept around about 2 years too long, but the timing of his departure allowed us to get Rice.
  13. Leon at it again. Trying to sell out UNLV

    Greg Graham was like having Eeyore as a basketball coach. TBA was a mausoleum during his time as a coach, but it was easy to get tickets and a good parking spot.
  14. Leon at it again. Trying to sell out UNLV

    Boise State is a football school, and Rice is doing his job and trying to make it a basketball school as well. Leon Rice is great and we are lucky he has stuck around as long as he has. I also think it's cool that he's interacting with the community and fans.
  15. Titus Young piece by LA Times

    Very sad story. I hope Titus can eventually find some peace.
