Think on this. Boise State has not lost more than two games in a season for the past seven years. This may be the best year yet for them.
The quarterback was likely to be sophomore Ryan Finley but that may be in question as he was arrested for illegal consumption , resisting arrest and that could lead to disciplinary action from the university. Tommy Stuart, redshirt freshman Alex Ogle, and true freshman Brett Rypien are also in the mix for the starting job. None have college game experience though. Rypien is the nephew of former Washington Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien.
Jay Ajayi is gone to the NFL along with 347 carries, 28 touchdowns and 1,823 yards. Sophomore Jeremy McNichols is the expected to replace Ajayi. He played both receiver and running back last season. He rushed for 159 yards with a touchdown, and also had 15 catches for 155 yards and a touchdown. Kelsey Young,a graduate transfer from Stanford is eligible to play for Boise State this season. He was the second leading rusher for the Cardinal in 2014 with 331 yards. He has a younger brother Cory that will also get some playing time.
