Source: Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease to leave, with Florida and Alabama as possible destinations

It looks like the Boise State football program will lose its offensive coordinator for the second straight season.

Brent Pease has decided to leave the Broncos and will choose between offers to become the offensive coordinator at Florida and Alabama, a source told the Idaho Statesman. Florida is considered the favorite.

The Gainesville Sun reports that Pease is in Gainesville, Fla., to meet with the Gators and plans to meet with Alabama coach Nick Saban on Tuesday.

Quarterback recruit Nick Patti, who is from Orlando, Fla., said Friday he plans to join the Broncos next week regardless of the coordinator situation. He contacted Petersen and was told Pease had not finalized his departure but is considering his options, he said.

"A lot of the reason I'm going there is for coach Petersen, a lot more than the offensive coordinator," Patti said. "No doubt, I'll be there next Saturday."

Petersen is traveling and unavailable for comment.

Pease was the Broncos' wide receivers coach from 2006 to 2010. He took a job as the Indiana offensive coordinator after last season, then returned to Boise State days later when offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin left to take a coordinator job at Texas.

Pease and three other Boise State offensive assistants visited Alabama last spring as part of their annual professional development. Saban was the Houston Oilers' defensive backs coach when Pease was a quarterback there. Defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski also made that trip.

Pease helped develop wide receivers Jeremy Childs, Austin Pettis, Titus Young and Tyler Shoemaker into record-setting players.

In 2011, he orchestrated an offense that ranked sixth in scoring (44.2 points per game), ninth in total offense (481.3 yards per game), first in sacks allowed (eight) and fourth in pass efficiency (171.57).

Pease has served as offensive coordinator at Montana, Northern Arizona, Baylor and Kentucky.

Wide receivers coach Robert Prince, who once was the designated heir apparent to Chris Petersen as the Broncos' coordinator, is considered the leading candidate to replace Pease. Prince rejoined the staff last year.

Prince was the wide receivers coach at Boise State from 2001 to 2003, while Petersen was the coordinator. He left for a job in the NFL, where he spent six years as an offensive assistant with three teams. He was the wide receivers coach at Colorado in 2010, under former Boise State coach Dan Hawkins.

Earlier Friday, reported that Pease is the top candidate for the coordinator jobs at Alabama and Florida.

Ω ugly - to clear the mind, try this:

Said Semolina Pilchard

Ω ugly - imho, one of the greatest songs ever written

If someone has questions after this, the questions will remain. This is light sitar and guitar only with John's vocal.

razor....Across the Universe is a great

tune....but my humble opinion, my favorite Beatles and their very best artistic master-work is Elanor Rigby....there is nothing like that song, except maybe Paint it Black by the Stones....

But Elanor and Yesterday are song writer classics paralled to none....

Ω Never cared for Eleanor, although ...

... the Beatles themselves said it was one of their best. This one was the "B" side to "Paperback Writer" and, I believe, the better song. And, better than Eleanor. Just my opinion.

Greatest way to spend $75.00

While buying used junk, and torture tools and devices at yard sales, with a person's $75.00 is certainly an indivudal's personal choice, a purchase such as that, does nothing for the BAA or the Bronco Football Team.

Here is an idea whreby a person can spend $75.00 that will actually help the BAA and the Bronco Football Team - just join the BAA at the Corral Club Level for $75.00. Here is an application:

Why would anybody of sound menal health want to buy a set of torture and imprisonment tools for; except to hold other people against their will (false imprisonment), which is a crime in the State of Idaho?

I guess it is kinda like the kids that buy the colored wax scare teeth for Halloween - or people that just don't brush their teeth for months on end. Some people just never grow up and out of that 'greasy kids stuff', I guess.

Something kinda spooky and pervie about somebody wanting to buy a pillory and stocks and then putting them on and then keeping them around the house.

What possible use down the line, would a mentally healthy individual have for owning a pillory and stocks? this is a question that must be asked with all due sincerity and seriousness.

VNDL....I agree with you 99% of time....but

possibly once, it may be worth a treasure to spend $75 at yardsales too (after the folk joined the BAA)....

razor has caught my interest, mainly cause of show where they bid on Storage Sheds....

What gems are out there?

I'd like to know what 'gem' or 'find' has someone found at a yardsale? Was it silver spoons? a 45 by Frank Sinatra? a trumpet signed by Louis? Just curious...

Ugly is going to look in April....

Ω ugly - fuzz bass fixes lots of things

Probably the first time used:

Especially if you like thinking for yourself.

razor....not sure about the bass on this song? but the

sitar was definitely instrumentl on Norwegian Wood and later copied by the Stones on Lady Jane....and further on Paint it Black....

Rain and Day Tripper are cla$sics....

The Beatles were the best by far, and with itunes and digital junk, they will someday be forgotten....not whil ugly is alive!!!!

Ω ugly - It is entirely possible ...

... that Lennon-McCartney, as a writing team, continue in perpetuity. I believe their mark is indelible.

Even 40 years after their last collaboration, nobody has approached what they did. Could it happen? Possibly. Even so, what they etched will never be forgotten. doubt that Lennon and McCartney are

the two greatest song writers of all time....they are...

I love the Stones, but the Beatles were better....

What worries me is time and time goes, music must be recorded and re-recorded and stored....the old vinyls must be in digital, and anything not will be lost in time....and who is storing and preserving what? Funding?

The libraries of Alexandria?

The lost books of Homer?

The Beatles were the best, but ask kids today? what do they say? they are the future historians....

I hope they enjoy the Beatles, and the many others....

Ω ugly - It's recorded and will survive ...

... and flourish.

See ya.


I hope so. and

see ya too....Great Music and Good Times...


This Dude is a Real Bronco !!!

Great job Christopher:

While Christopher is working hard to collect moeny for the BAA expansion of Bronco Stadium and being part of the 'solution' we have the Hackey Sackers on this board, doing everything they can to downplay the need for joining the BAA and contributing money for the expansion of Bronco Stadium.

Christophr - you are a role model, Buddy.

It really is kind of pathetic that the Hackey Sackers believe it is 'nonsense' to join the BAA and 'nonsense' to contribute money to the BAA for expansion of Bronco Stadium - and then to say that those that do join and contribute are 'mental midgets' and 'village idiots'. They have really said this outlandish stuff many times, as many people have rad it for themselves, in black and white. Yes it is bizarre what they have said - but they said it.

You just can't make this kind of stuff up.

Well, Christopher, I don't know you but Dude you are a Hero and a True Bronco in my book and not a 'mental midget' or 'village idiot' like the hackey Sackers on this board would have you believe, because you have stood up and supported the Bronco Football Team and did what is right.

Come on Hackey Sackers, get with the program and create your own Fundly BAA support page and see how much money you can generate from your so-called leadership skills and ability to motivate others. So far I can't see where you can even lead a hungry Pug to a liverwurst sandwich.

Christopher is doing it and doing it well.

But then again, Christopher is a Real Bronco and not like the Hackey Sackers.

Go 2012 Broncos.

VNDL....Yes this guy is a true Bronco fan....but

can you bleieve that he is the top facebook/fundly personal fundraiser at just $75....the others are at zero....

They are trying....

Bronco Fans? I know you love your football and your football team....what gives?

Dudes, if you are 100% broke, then understandable....but if some monies, then why not $50 to Stadium and $75 to BAA?

Ω ugly - Where it leads

Nice visiting with you ... hope you get it someday.


I agree....

At least we share musical interests....

Hope things go well....


To the Bronco Fans....

As we know phase-I is funded by $M from the 1% and from Foundation monies....the 99% gave well under $50,000 so far....

About $15M came from the Foundation type stuff if I read it correctly....

I know times are tough, but lets say about 60,000 Bronco fans are doing ok economically....the $15M divided by 60,000 comes to $250 each....

Ugly will donate another $250 this month to Stadium, and that will be it on my Stadium donations....I will renew BAA membership though....

Im not saying this from bragging, just trying to encourage others, from what I estimate as a potential 60,000 folks, to donate if they truly want Boise to succeed in the new BCS system that starts in 2013....

I could use the $250 elsewhere as monies are not that easy to come by....but I will put my money where my mouth is and donate one more time....

Go Broncos....

ugly - you do realize, don't you

that the more you contribute to BAA projects and join the BAA, the more the Hackey Sackers and the B'Guy and razor, and the other 'slugg-ohs' will condemn you for having done so -


they believe,

that a Vandal or b Bronco or anybody, joining the BAA is 'nonsense' and contrilbuting money to the BAA is 'nonsense', and whomever does so is a 'mental midget' and/or a 'village idiot'.

The Hackey Sackers have made it abundantly clear on this board, they are out to destroy the BAA's membership drives and fund raising projects, as they have already gone on record on this board to discourage Broncos and Vandals from joining the BAA and giving any money to the BAA.

The Hackey Sackers will just make fun of you and call you lots of bad names and want you to go sit in a pile of your own fecal material, because you joined the BAA and gave money for the expansion of Bronco Stadium.

These guys hate Vandals and Broncos, equally as much. Stay away from the Hackey Sackers, as their negative energy is costing the BAA lost opportunity dollars daily, after people read this blog and learn how the Hackey Sackers do not want people to become BAA members and/or give money to the BAA.

Here is an example of how they interact with Beaver People:

You're old and not the least bit interesting.
Go back to Corvallis and sit in your own shít.

If this is how they interact with Beaver People - just imagine how they interact with Vandal People or Bronco People or even Bengal People for that matter.

Yep, they will want you to sit in a pile of your own fecal material if you join the BAA.

Are you willing to run the risk of being told to go back to Moscow and sit in a pile of your fecal material?

Go 2012 Broncos.

Maybe you can drive down to the BAA Offices sometime this week and tell this guy:

you think he is a 'mental midget' and 'village idiot' for having joined the BAA and donated money for the expansion of Bronco Stadium like you and the 'B' Guy do to other people, on this board?

Maybe you could even tell him to go back to Boise and sit in a pile of his own fecal material, as that is usually what you tell people who you do not agree with, as is evidenced with this example:

Just some thoughts - nothing conclusive, just preliminary stuff.

BAA Member #63799

razor - you need this BSU Sportsmanship video real bad

This sportsmanship video is from BSU, recommending Bronco Fans show a little respect and not act like like dolts on message boards:

President Kustra and Coach Pete are concerned that fans of the Broncos act like grown up and mature people and represent BSU well.

If you truley like BSU, don't you want to represent them in a gentlemanly fashiom?

Possibly, you owe the Beaver Guy an apology?

Go back and reread what you told him to do:

A. Go back to Corvalis,


B. Sit in a pile of his own 'fecal matter'.

Now that wasn't very gentlemanly was it? And it certainly did not show the qualities of Good Sportsmanship.

You do realize that if you let your comment stand, without issuing an aplogy to the Beaver Guy, after being reminded of what President Kustra, Coach Pete, and BSU want you to do to be a good representative of BSU; that you further cement the thought in other readers/posters eyes that you are not a Good BSU Sport.

Go 2012 Broncos.

BAA Member #63799

VNDL....Yes, I know the risks of

announcing a may sound like trumpets of glory....

In wrestling, we were taught for every move, there is a counter-move....

Fundly has not raised a dime in three weeks, based on all the facebook stuff I have read and seen....

It has been around $14,685 since December 15, 2011....

So, it is time for 3D Thinkers to begin with our countermoves....are we leaders, or not?

Ugly will make the call at 426-3556 and have them send me form for a direct donation to Stadium....

I am one of 60,000....when I do so for 2012, there will only be 59,999 more to go....

VNDL you upped your ante on BAA....Ugly will keep his at Corall and just donate the other to Stadium....

ugly - wow us Vandals are getting flagged everytime we turn

around by the Worm Boys, it looks like.

It looks like the 'B' Guy, and razor are really doing their best to hurt the BAA and encourage people to not contribute to the BAA and/or join the BAA.

I used to think that maybe JLandon and windex and TBK and RMSandford were part of this stuff too, but I think they have realized how many thousands of dollars the Worm Boys have cost the BAA and BSU in the form of lost memberships and decreased cash donations coming to a halt from many people reading the Worm Boys stuff on these boards, about how it is 'nonsense' to join the BAA and contribute money to the BAA and all the other Vandal/Bronco Hate crappola they put out.

Once again you post positive stuff about joining the Bronco Athletic Association and how imporatn it is to give the BAA money for expansion of Bronco Stadium and you get flagged by the Worm Boys. Go figure.

Maybe JLandon is not a Worm Boy. We know that razor and the 'B' Guy are.

Maybe it is only Two Worm Boys.

It if is only 2 then we can rename them the DirtBag Duo.

Just a thought.

Go 2012 Broncs.

BAA Member #63799

PS - I am still thinking B81 is a Worm Boy, maybe too. He is a Turn Coat Traitor Vandal and wishes only for the death of the Vandals, as we know them. I think he was not accepted into Graduate School (MBA) at Idaho so he settled for BSU's MBA program, and has been bitter ever since. It is kinda understandable when you really process it, as Idaho is so very selective about who they accept for the Vandal MBA program - you really have to have it together to get into that program. He is just upset that Idaho has such high standards, I am left wondering about, and not being sure about an anwer.

Yes VNDL....the censor filter must have been

off and one of my posts slipped thru, thus a flagging?

People are sensitive these days over many things....I think the economy is part of it....and the BCS system and lack of playoffs for cfb is other parts....

Bronco gear was being worn all-over eastern Idaho from Pocy thru IF in Nov and Dec, and now you hardly see any at all....The Vandal bumper stickers are starting to show again....

Not sure if DBD is flagging, or just some lonely blogger with nothing else to do....Oh well, life is good....and people should support the Broncos whenever they can....this is a one-time shot at the NC, I believe....but it does take monies....

Ω Bowl Mania: it's over

Northern Illinois takes out Arkansas State.

razor - 487
windex - 461
tfunk - 370
JL - 360 (pending Cotton, Compass, and bowls)

JL gets the pillory

tfunk gets the stocks

windex gets a chaise lounger and no limit at the no-holds bar

razor gets to buy, gladly


Im at 395 with 18 on Bama. Does this mean tfunky is the true winner?

Ω Bowl Mania, JL checks in

razor - 487
windex - 461
JL - 395
tfunk - 370

Looks like this will be the final order. tfunk wins last place.

You know what they say

"Nice guys finish last"


For tonight......Bama 17-10

Ω Leo Durocher

is proud.

Alabama 17-13.

Nice read on Wilcox

Thanks, Coach Pease!

Wishing him the very best success...until we play.
Then, it's beat down time. Followed by coach regret.
(I kid, I kid...kinda, but not really)
