Broncos set offensive line for Oregon game

By Chadd Cripe

The Boise State football team will enter the season with the same starting offensive line it had at the end of fall camp — Matt Slater at left tackle, Will Lawrence at left guard, Thomas Byrd at center, Kevin Sapien at right guard and Michael Ames at right tackle.

Backup left tackle Nate Potter still is competing with Slater and could play against Oregon, offensive line coach Scott Huff said.

Lawrence, a junior former defensive lineman, and Ames, a freshman former walk-on, will get their first career starts against Oregon.

“Both those guys were kind of darkhorses,” Huff said. “Will was a guy we knew was going to have a shot at being good because he’s a big, physical guy. … Mike was a guy who really separated himself just by being coachable.”

Huff likes his depth — even down to some of the third-teamers — and expects the linemen to compete throughout the year. The backups are Potter, freshman left guard Joe Kellogg, freshman center Bronson Durrant, freshman right guard Brenel Myers and sophomore right tackle Garrett Pendergast.

“There’s no one getting comfortable,” Huff said. “The twos, they’re all good players and they’re only going to get better. I don’t feel like guys have peaked. They’re still young, still inexperienced, and there’s still a lot of good things that could happen.”

I’ll have much more on the offensive line in Friday’s edition of the Idaho Statesman.

Scary

They're still young, still inexperienced... Hope they step up.0

Forget about QB's, DB's, LB's, et al

The play of the O-Line will make or break this season for the Bronc's.

Banachek says!

Come on kids - bigger is better and the O-LINE is going to be much better this season especially on the right side. But don't listen to me, what did Huff say? He said, "The twos, they’re all good players and they’re only going to get better." By the way - the twos are the second string ha ha
Good reporting Chad and GO Broncos

You can find me: But are you sure you want too?

PS:

You guys better not be waiting till the first for your tickets cause they have been selling for a week now and they are going going going ..... Example after I finished getting mine there were just binocular seats left for Nevada. I wouldn't be surprised if they are sold out now for that game. Go Broncos

One of your Bleacher fans "BanasGirl" was just blocked from here by Chad Cripe because she said the same thing. Way to go Cripe with all the garbage getting said on this forum - classy move - you think?

How would you know who's blocked from IS.com?

FESS UP!

Now stop bluffing.

Because she is a friend and your an idiot. How's the spelling?

Hey Beaver Boy. Is their still no life in Idaho? But you're from the Oregonian side of life so whats your problem? What you lost in the "outer limits" (1960)?

PS: You're a prime example of garbage on this forum. You antagonize much of it with your retarded gobble.

Go fabricate cyanide jockey shorts. It's lunch time.

Another babble post from the asylum.

He escaped from the Idaho asylum and hiding in Oregon or the other way around? Hey you ever wonder what this forum would be like without that loony? I doubt there would be so much attitude.

It was there even harder when I got here.

coachable, wow

An offensive lineman seperated himself just by being coachable? Does that mean bs-who has uncoachable players? Or maybe Pete-the-savior just doesnt have the respect of all of them.

Of turds, and donkeys and Buck Owens and the Buckaroos

Ahoy mule fans. Is this a bad time? Are ya'll headin down to the horseshoe saloon to dance wit yer cuzinz ans have yerselfs sum moooonshinne??

Just in case you were wondering (I'm sure you are) you averaged 1.1 yards per attempt on the ground last time we met. Your futile ground game + a qb who has come back to earth spells doom for donkeys.

donk fans

the donk fans are playing the "lets not say anything to make the other team mad" game. They think its impossible for a player to make a comment and then back it up. No wonder super-pete wont let them talk.

talk is cheap

when a team is good their good there is nothing to talk about, you just leave it all on the field. You know like they did last year.

broncos talking

Oh really. Didnt kyle wilson answer a few questions from a reporter last week. Shouldnt he be focusing on the game? Maybe he should be suspended for breaking silence. I guess he wont be leaving it all on the field will he? What about cheap shot johnson? He had some comments too. I thought they were busy preparing. perfect-pete better reel em in. God forbid they be allowed to speak their mind.

THE ONLY

thing good about replying to your posts is .............. .......... ........ ... well nothing actually, so I won't be anymore.
As for your he side Bduck at least the guy brings valid arguments in a twisted degrading sort of way, that I can respond too and get back something to chew on. Yours just aren't any good.

Thats my opinion I know you have developed some nice relationships on here, I certainly hope those work out for you. You have caught major's eye good luck with that.

Horra wont reply anymore

Ha, but I know hes reading. He actually quit replying long ago. By the way, Bduck is an idiot and majorbronc can go to hell. Horras inferiority complex toward women is glaringly obvious. Trying to say I am bduck so people wont think he is getting outsmarted by a female. Intelligent people see right through horra. Chew on that Einstein

bduck is horras hero

How embarassing is that?

dont think so

I dont develop relationships with bloggers.

I love Macy though...

I keep stealing her flag...
