This Week at the Diggity’s – Offseason Episode #1 (Into the Abyss)

Sorry about the lack of a column last week. I got caught up in holiday festivities and basically that’s my only excuse. It’s been a busy week for Bronco Nation. A Fiesta Bowl win, Jay Ajayi leaving for the NFL (we knew that was coming), & Mike Sanford not leaving to be the OC at…

Stream of Consciousness – Thoughts Before the Fiesta

This idea that Boise State isn’t as good as Bronco teams in the past is frustrating. Even if you agree with the statement, Arizona is not as good as Oklahoma (Big-12 champion), or TCU (Undefeated 12-0 MWC champion), was in the past either. This idea that there is a major talent gap between these teams…

This Week at the Diggity’s – Holiday Edition (Santa Needs An Umbrella Here)

It’s almost Christmas.  Do you know what that means?  That means that you may have Boise State stuff from Santa. That also means it’s closer to December 31st and the Broncos can Fiesta.  While we’re waiting, you can enjoy another installment of This Week at the Diggity’s.  Well, if you’re up for it. Christmas season…

Jay Ajayi and a Brief History of Boise State Players in the NFL

With the news that Jay Ajayi has decided to enter the NFL draft, I decided to do some research on the history of Boise State players in the NFL. You can peruse all the information at Pro Football Reference, but here are some interesting facts and tidbits: Jay Ajayi is the fifth Boise State player…

My Favorite BSU Football Players & Why

I have been writing for Blue Turf Nation now for over three years. For some reason, it never really occurred to me to just write a quick list of my favorite players of all time from Boise State. So I figured why not now? Here is my list of favorite BSU players based on what…

What They Are Saying – Jay Ajayi Part I

For all those who have followed our website for awhile, you know I love the NFL draft process. Even more, I love watching Boise State players take on the NFL and impressing scouts. Last season, I started this column on Demarcus Lawrence, “What They are Saying” where I give BSU fans all the current info…

One More

A year ago, the word pee-gate hadn’t yet entered Boise State lexicon. Coach Petersen had left, and the current senior class was trying to hold down the fort going into to what would ultimately be a rather lacking performance versus Oregon State in Hawaii. Bronco Nation was in turmoil, obsessively tracking a coaching search online and…

The Great J-Train Robbery

Admit it, Mountain West Coaches and Select Media, Jay Ajayi is a victim of grand larceny.  That’s right, you robbed the J-Train.  And Jesse James  would have been proud of the way it was done.  You might think I’m just chock full of homerism but it’s more than that.  It’s a record-breaking running back at…

BTN Predictions: Mountain West Conference Championship Game

Derek Well here we are. 15 weeks after the disappointing loss to Ole Miss in Atlanta and we are back on The Blue™ for one last time.  On the line is a Mountain West Conference Championship game, and if we achieve that goal, even bigger things await in a New Years Six bowl.  After that…

This Week at the Diggity’s – Conference ‘Ship Week (Deja Blue All Over Again)

There was a chance this would happen: A bad case of Deja Blue (for them). You know, that the Broncos would play a team that they had already faced earlier in the season.  Who would have thought that it would be the Bulldogs considering the way they opened the season? But no worries, right? It…

Attack The Opponent: Fresno State Part II – Electric Bulldogaloo

The first time Boise and Fresno met to play a little game of football this season, it was a bit of a fight. Fresno came in fired up, but Boise State was able to assert their will, get a couple of stops, be a little tricky, and win by 10. Fresno State was fired up to…
