Naming a starting quarterback

Boise State offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin reiterated this morning that he would like to narrow the quarterback competition after the Broncos’ first scrimmage (Saturday) and pick a starter after the second scrimmage (Aug. 17).

Despite the best efforts of some reporters to get Harsin to install junior Bush Hamdan as the clear-cut leader, the offensive coordinator resisted.

Harsin might have a future in politics after walking that line delicately today.

It’s tough, however, not to be impressed with Hamdan. He excelled at the throws that garner attention from reporters and observers at practice — the deep balls. He threw several perfect strikes Tuesday, including a beautiful 40-yard post pattern to Vinny Perretta.

Preseason poll mania

The USA Today/Coaches’ preseason poll was released earlier this morning and Boise State is ranked No. 23.
Not sure what to think about the ranking.
I had an interesting conversation with several others at Boise State’s morning practice about the polls and rankings in general.
Everyone, it seems, has a different way of approaching the preseason poll.
