The Boise State Football program used to be the measuring stick in the Mid-Major Conferences of the NCAA Football landscape.
When you have success at a non-FBS Institute, your coaching staff suddenly becomes likable to the “BIG BOYS”. Chris Peterson has gone on to greener pastures with the University of Washington.
The University also lost Dirk Koetter and Dan Hawkins, both, however, are no longer at the schools which hired them.
Current Boise State Head Coach Bryan Harsin is 21-6 entering his third season at the helm. The Broncos failed to reach double digits in the win column last season.
2016 could be another average season for the football squad.
The 2016-17 Boise State offense returns their three top players. Starting quarterback Brett Rypien, running back Jeremy McNichols, and wideout Thomas Sperbeck.
Rypien, the nephew of former NFL Player Mark Rypien, threw for over 3,500 yards last season.
McNichols scored a team-high 26 touchdowns with over 1,300 yards rushing. Sperbeck, Rypien’s favorite target in the passing game had more than 1,400 receiving yards.
The problem is there is not much after those three at the skill positions.
Offensive Coordinators Zak Hill and Scott Huff will take over the play-calling duties. Junior Tight End Jake Roh is a capable blocker and is great in short passing situations. The offensive line is under construction.
Both the Center and Left Tackle position must be addressed. The coaching staff must find ways to protect the quarterback’s blind side.
The Broncos defense ended last season in spectacular fashion by shutting down Northern Illinois in their bowl game.
However the scored was misleading, Northern Illinois was without their top two quarterbacks. Still, the coaching staff has something to build on for this season.
The Boise State defense ranked in the top 15 nationally, allowing the opposition just 318.3 yards per contest.
New Defensive Coordinator Andy Avalos top priority is to rebuild the defensive line which was dominant for quite a while in the Chris Petersen era.
Senior Sam McCaskill anchors the unit with his versatility at tackle or end. The linebackers are the strength of the defense with Ben Weaver leading the way.
The cornerback position is one of concern, and the staff must devise a system with safety help.
The Broncos have a soft out of Conference schedule this season.
