#44 Lady Broncos in Action This Weekend

Boise State's women's tennis team, which sports a 5-2 record in the team's season-opening road swing, is in the Palouse for a pair of matches this weekend.

The Broncos take on #74 Washington State Saturday and Idaho Saturday. Then it's finally home!

Bronco Softball Team at Last Vegas Tournament

Boise State's softball team had a rough opening last week losing three of four, although the Bronco pitching staff certainly did its job. Boise State's pitchers gave up a total of nine runs in four games. Now if the hitters can only come through.

Boise State faces two NCAA Tournament teams in BYU and Tennessee Friday, before meeting up with Cal Poly and Long Beach State Saturday and Oregon on Sunday.

Utah State, Louisiana Tech Favored in WAC Track

It seems like a broken record that is hauled out every year. However, the Utah State men and Louisiana Tech women are once again favored to win WAC Championships at the Indoor Track competition starting a week from tomorrow.

The Utah State men are projected to score 184 points in the event based on top times this year in the WAC. However, Boise State is close enough (165) that the Broncos could wind up on top if everything goes right. Louisiana Tech (85) and Idaho (59) will fight for third and last place.

The Louisiana Tech women are the heavy favorites once again. Boise State will be doing well to finish in fifth place. Boise State female student-athletes are ranked in the top eight in the conference 12 times and most of those are near the bottom. The Bronco women's program never did catch the other teams in the WAC in 10 years in the conference. The going won't get any easier either as next year the Bronco women have to compete in the Mountain West.

"Tab" Sections Coming Along

My goal is to make this the most complete site for Boise State statistics. It already contains more than the official Boise State site!

I have recently updated the Football Starting Lineups, Past Statistics and Records. The lineups are pretty complete back to 1995, the statistics are fairly complete to that time, and I continue to work on the records section. I will be adding categories for several records that do not show up either in the football media guides or online. One of these categories is blocked kicks. Frank Robinson is the record holder with 7, an amazing number.

I will also be adding records for pass breakups, forced fumbles, fumble recoveries, and others. Not only that, but the record books typically show 10-15 people and we lose track of the stars of the past that way. This site will eventually list considerably more than that in every category.

Also check out my "E Store". I have selected items from Amazon's site that you may be interested in. There are some Bronco items as well as DVD's, books, etc. I will keep changing those so hopefully you will find something you like. As this is this site's only revenue source, it helps this site keep going!
