Re: New Coach to be Announced

I'm probably reading too much into this, but... Amidst all the talk about athletic departments struggling financially, the concern about what the football season will look like, some universities cutting sports or salaries to save money...we are hiring new coaches! I know our staff has been short a ...

Re: While on the Subject of Future Games...

I've heard that we are trying to take a one year break to move our home game with BYU to even years...so we don't have both Boise State and BYU as home games in the same season. As those games have a higher likelihood of selling out, this would even out some of the revenue between seasons. BYU's res...

Re: 1280 The Zone

They have had a big loss of advertising dollars...having no live Jazz games to broadcast would have that effect. It forced them to cut several staff members.

Re: Recruiting

The influx of players into the transfer portal is astounding. There's definitely going to be players without homes for next season. Combined with the inability of coaches to meet with these players in person and see them workout is going to make for an interesting situation. Coaching staffs who rea...

I can see Smith's point of view with not offering unless the guy visits.
Currently visits aren't allowed. I know the staff has put together a "virtual visit"...hopefully we have some players taking us up on that.

Are we running the same offense this year? It's going to be very similar to what was run the last time Coach Andersen was here. Think about how we ran things during Chuckie's sophomore season.
