Now that the National Football League appears they are going to have a season, teams are scrambling to get players and Boise State is one of the top beneficiaries.
Safety Jeron Johnson is going to Seattle, Winston Venable has signed with the Chicago Bears, Tommy Gallarda will join former Bronco coach Dirk Koetter in Jacksonville, standout defensive end Ryan Winterswyck is headed to Atlanta and in a pretty telling transaction, backup quarterback Mike Coughlin has signed a free agent deal with Tampa Bay.
Congrats to these fine young men and best of luck!

You could either call it respect or buttering up the Broncos for a surprise but in the annual Mountain West Conference meetings, Boise State was selected to win the conference in a vote of 31 members of the media associated with the MWC. Boise State was the choice of 28 of those polled, while departing member TCU was selected by three people.
