Finally Friday and we got just the reading material to get you closer to the weekend.
State of the Program: Boise State
The Athletic continues its Group of 5 series and we continue featuring them when a MWC team is written about. The Broncos come into 2019 having to replace their QB, RB, and top two WRs, which is the most production needed to be replaced in the past ten years. This preview is high on their running back room, wide receiver corps and experience at the OL (although they fail to point out how much that unit has struggled). They are as high as can be on Curtis Weaver and think safety is one of the deepest positions on the team, but not the LB unit is pretty thin. Also, the recruiting efforts of Boise State are highlighted.
Falcons athletic department announces record-breaking funds.
The Air Force athletic department had their best year ever in fund-raising, which is always a good thing. The sub-department, the Falcon Athletic Fund, is in charge of this and doing well. They went through a name change (formerly the Falcon Pride Club) and the rebrand is off to a good start. New athletic director Nathan Pine discusses his vision for what is currently doing well and what the future could look like.
