Boise State Cross Country Teams Set to Debut

The Boise State men's and women's cross country teams open their season this Saturday in Nampa for the fourth annual Roger Curran Invitational. 

Boise State, host Northwest Nazarene, TVCC and Westminster will compete.  The men will start at 10 a.m. on the 6-k course while the women run a 4-k race that begins at 11:30.  The Broncos will test 11 freshmen that were added to both the men's and women's rosters.  The Boise State men are coming off a season that saw them capture the Western Athletic Conference title. 

The meet is at West Park in Nampa--go out and show the Broncos your support!

Pat Kilkenny's Plane is in Boise

Have no idea why it's here, but I can confirm that the plane that Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott used to fly to Salt Lake City and Denver last year is seven minutes away on its way to Boise.  The plane has no other city on its itinerary today.

The plane is registered to Pat Kilkenny, the former Athletic Director of University of Oregon.  Scott used it last year prior to inviting Utah and Colorado into the conference.

In a Live Chat, Scott just said he is in his office in California.  So that clears that up but we don't know who took the plane.  My hunch is that this has something to do with someone applying for the AD job at Boise State but that's just a hunch.

Map of States Boise State Has Won In

Thanks to Apollo VI of for the reproduction of his map.  This contains the states (marked in blue) that the Boise State football team has won in.  Pretty impressive.
