Southwick enters season as No. 3 QB

True freshman Joe Southwick will enter the season as the No. 3 quarterback, Boise State offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin said.

Southwick separated himself from fellow true freshman Mike Tamburo during fall camp. The original plan called for them to share the third-string job. Instead, Southwick will practice with the offense and Tamburo will run the scout offense.

“(Southwick) did a nice job,” Harsin said. “He came in here and grasped what we’re asking him to do. … We’re still letting Mike and Joe do a little competing in certain things and then we’ll kind of see how the year goes along.”

The No. 3 role will be a mental challenge for Southwick. He only gets a few snaps per practice with the offense. He also will lead the second-team offense through scout plays against the first-team defense in certain periods of practice. Most of his time will be spent observing starter Kellen Moore and backup Mike Coughlin.

The Broncos still plan to redshirt Southwick unless they need him.

Tamburo, meanwhile, will get much more playing time as he runs the scout offense but he won’t be running Boise State plays. He also works with the quarterbacks during individual drills.

The Broncos will hold their last scrimmage today and it is closed to the public and media. It won’t be much of a scrimmage, coach Chris Petersen said. He expects more situational plays and perhaps some scrimmaging for the younger plays. He doesn’t want to beat up his starters.

Harsin said the Broncos are close to nailing down the offensive line but wanted to see how the players performed today.

The Ducks released some info from their private scrimmage Tuesday. Here's some coverage from Eugene and Portland:

Boise State-Virginia Tech has company at FedExField outside Washington, D.C.

Indiana and Penn State will play a Big Ten game there Nov. 20, 2010. Boise State and Virginia Tech play Oct. 2, 2010.

The Washington Redskins will pay Indiana $3 million to move its home game there, according to The Herald-Times of Bloomington, Ind.

Nice to See the Hoosiers Getting their Money

BSU gets $1.25 Million and the Hoosiers get $3 Million. Interesting. Maybe the $3 Million will be the beginning funding for closing the other end zone at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington. Didn't BSU just close in one of their end zones with some bleachers. Check out the new digs the Hoosiers have.

hoosiers

the hoosiers get $3 million to play--we get less than 1/2!!!!!!!! sounds like more BCS-bull crap socialism!!!! Maybe BSU should refuse to play for that????

You are not comparing apples to apples.

Indiana is SUPPOSED to play Penn State (a in conference game) at home. Because they will have to give up 100% of the revenue of that scheduled home game, they must be compensated accordingly.

They can sell more racing tires.

hmm...

I believe you have a fundamental flaw in your understanding of socialism. Capitalism is much more to blame for your perceived injustice.

That being said, I agree with you; there is an apparent unfairness. Especially since Virginia Tech will get a bunch of money as well, for basically playing a home game..

new ejection rules

this could seriously affect the broncos defense. their whole defensive scheme of delivering head shots that have the potential to cause paralysis must be revamped. unless they just want to run the risk of having their starters ejected.

better cheat early on against the ducks, because the offense is going to roll. and your crummy defense cant do anything to stop us.

What a Whiner !

Keep saying "Broncos are cheaters, Broncos are dirty, Broncos are mean".........it should take the edge off on the 3rd.

Broncos are dirty

That covers it

Donkeys don't play football...

...they pull carts. This wiggitty wac nonsense is tired like the res of donkey nation.

How many wins against BCS teams, Pac 10 teams,anyone in a power conference? in the last 15 years? 3?? Boise Juco is a joke and all you donkeys know it. You liv in your little pee soaked world with turds coming from your mouths.

Just like Eddie from Boise, "Thanks vine errrr, Jim" You are all tools if you actually think BJC can hang with the Ducks without all the gifts they recieved last season.

RACK ME AGAIN BBBAAABBBBYYYY!!!! I am everywhere and cannot be bested.

The wall still loves you qwack-boy

It's a good listener for you too. Niiiiice wall., niiiiice wall.

i didnt say the broncos were mean

they are just cheaters. come 9/3 you'll regret the day you cheated. its going to be like when you played at georgia. instead it will be even sweeter in front of all you dorks with your coordinated tshirts and cowbells.

Well, if you're soooo not-afraid...

then why the insults? If you're soooo confident, then why the cheating charges? If we're soooo bad, then why waste your time here? Why do we merit such a chastisement from you? What's your point, boy? If we are just sooooo stupid, then why keep repeating yourself as if we'll ever get it? If we are sooooo hopeless as a school and community of losers, then what makes more sense, to keep logging-on and throwing rotten vegetables at us as a gesture of your gracious humanity, or to let us fend for ourselves as best we can without your superior guidance? If our team is soooo slow and inferior, then why are you soooo worried that we could hurt your team and cause them to lose? Why do you think we'll ever learn anything from you if you keep telling us how better you are than us...who else is watching and approving of what you're doing? Is ESPN auditioning UO "rouge (thanks) bloggers" for a guest appearance or something? SI, maybe? Statesman, or CNN, NBC Morning Show, ABC, SOMEBODY, ANYBODY? Who do you think you are pandering to, to win their approval and affection by verbally yanking this site around? Is this the only entertainment in your life? Really? really? really...

A LITTLE PARKING

help for you duck fans that are coming. Hope it helps.http://www.ktvb.com/news/localnews/stories/ktvbn-aug2709-bsu_uo_parking.120aade94.html

majorbronc is sensitive

the other reason i dont like the boise state cheaters

two old hag boise state fans sat two rows behind us at last years game. when the ducks scored a td, they pushed the guy behind. he hit me, i then flew into a lady holding a baby. real classy. the best part was they were wearing flannel shirts all boise colors. it was so hick. what section do you put the hicks wearing all three colors in flannel? i dont see it on the chart.

pretty low to almost injure a little baby. i can tell you what section the two old hags were sitting in, it was section ejection. police came and removed them. thank god, they were angry people, and their shirts were making me physically ill. sweet gear you guys get.

this story is real, all your bs from the ducks is only verbal.

Why were you so close to old guys? DUDE?

Yes, and we all know that

Yes, and we all know that BSU is the only team to have ever had bad fans. We also know that the ducks have never ever had a late hit penalty (BS).... It's funny that you think that "two old hag boise state fans" is indicitive of all BSU fans. That's the kind of mentality that I've come to expect from a duck......

And I really love how

And I really love how someone from Oregon is giving grief to an Idahoan about wearing plaid. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black...

Hey Duck Fan

How many top 10 finishes in the last 10 yrs? Top 15? Hello? Is this thing on? That's right every time you get a chance at the money shot the Viagra wears off and your limpness returns. Pass the blunt right? I didn't know PAC10 players where such china dolls. WAC players can take a hit, why can't your skirt wearing QBs?

ElfVet, another ignorant donkey...

...You are a complete tool!!! Why don't you look it up and speak facts instead of the normal turd on a stick.

Final Rankings
2000 Oregon 7
2001 Oregon 2
2002 BJC 15
2003 BJC 16
2004 BJC 12
2005 Oregon 12
2006 BJC 5
2007 Oregon 23
2008 Oregon 10 BJC 11

Both teams with 5 in the top 25, However, Oregon 3 top 10's and 1 top 15, BJC 1 top 10 and 3 top 15.

Note that everyone of the years BJC ends up in the top 25 they have 1 or 0 losses. That shows you what respect they carry, none!!!

Oregon lost 3 games last season and still was top 10. Donkeys lose 1 and can't make top 10.

BJC beats up on wyoming and idaho and then crys foul when they get treated like a red headed stepchild. You are lucky to get what you get. You are a weak excuse for major college football.

Even your glory year when you took oklahoma by suprise and tricked your way to a win, you go undefeated and still are #5?? Please.

You tools in hee haw land need to wise up. Buck Owens and Roy Clark could teach you mule turds a thing or 2.

Why don't you head on down to the horseshoe saloon and ask the bartender to pop in a beta tape of hee haw reruns and have some moonshine mulesA**

Rack me again and again. It's never gonna end as long as there are donkeys to school, tool and tatoo!!!

OIF5VET and Hotrod

somehow the two old hags (ladies, i mean cows) were sitting behind us.

we finished number 2 in the nation in 2001. i dont want to hear anything from wac competition about competeing. if you were any real good, a good conference would try to get you. simple economics, you dont fill the seats. Pac-10 wont take you because boise st is considered an institution of lowering learning. if grads are responding to me, then its fairly obvious that is extremely accurate. you guys are 1-1 at home versus bcs conf teams at home not quite as impressive as the overall record.

and its kind of absurd for boise fans to talk smack about anyones uniforms. sports car blue and orange are really lame. if the ducks are sporting silver and black in the first game, would you make fun of them like you make fun of the raiders uniforms?

hotrod, seriously? your name is hotrod and you are trying to imply we are the hillbillies? do you have a bunch of tires in front of your house? do you have a mullet and drive an old trans am?
