The 5th ranked Broncos return to the Blue for Homecoming this weekend against UC Davis in what should be a glorified scrimmage and all signs point to a rough go of things for the Aggies this Saturday. The only real intrigue on the field will be seeing if the Broncos can remain conscious throughout, but UC Davis brings some different intrigue to the matchup, as they share closer ties with the Broncos than some might realize. Needless to say, there is a lot to be learned about this week’s foe (don’t worry, Kellen Moore already knows their defense intimately)...so let’s all give the Aggies a closer look through the magic of factoids and childish jokes. It’s time to get to know your enemy, Bronco Nation...so take notes.
Ten things Bronco fans probably didn’t know about UC Davis and their quaint Cali campus
10) To say that coach Jim Sochor turned the UC Davis program around would be an understatement. Chris Petersen’s mentor took the reigns of the Davis program in 1970...prior to which no coach had left with even a .500 win percentage (dating back to 1915). Sochor coached the program for 19 years and left with a 78% win percentage (155-42-5) and 18 NCACC championships or co-championships. For those in need of a metaphor, this is like someone taking charge of the Washington Generals and leading them to 18 straight wins over the Harlem Globetrotters. 9) Now that’s what I call futility. The 1917 Davis football team was outscored 172-7 under coach Jack Glasscock’s *snicker* tutelage. The worst defeat for the team that year was a 111-0 trouncing...at the hands of a high school team from Sacramento. Injury, meet insult. The team was so demoralized by the 1917 campaign that they didn’t even field a team the following year. The most amazing part of this factoid? There is actually more than one person named Jack Glasscock *snicker*. The other was an elite baseball player in the late 1800s. Crackerjack! 8) Although the UC Davis student body embraces the popular “Aggie” moniker, the official mascot of the athletics programs is a mustang (a constipated looking one, at that). The mustang’s official name is Gunrock, which isn’t a kick-ass new form of heavy metal, but rather an homage to a Thoroughbred of the same name that had been brought to the campus in 1921 to provide high-quality stock for the U.S. Army Cavalry. 7) In 1911, the first UC Davis campus newspaper, Agricola, was founded. That same year, 3 out of 5 people preferred Agricola to Pepsi Cola in a nationwide taste test. 6) Though the Davis campus was founded in 1908, the first female students didn’t arrive until 1914. They would have been there sooner, but they were all in the bathroom fixing their hair and makeup. 5) In 1977, Prince Charles visited the UC Davis campus. Not sure why exactly, but I think it may have something to do with his affinity for horses. Boom, roasted. 4) The University of California, Davis was founded in 1908 as the “University Farm”. The school was founded with the intent to teach agriculture in an applied fashion to the students of Cal Berkeley. Luckily, Cal Berkeley no longer has access to the “farm”, as you can probably imagine what a group of green-thumbed hippies would be interested in growing...and no, it isn’t basil. 3) Boise State head coach Chris Petersen was the starting quarterback at UC Davis in 1985 and 1986 after playing his first two years of ball at Sacramento City College. Petersen was actually recruited to Davis by their current coach, Bob Biggs, and Pete led the team to two conference championships and a 19-3 overall record. Pete still holds the school record at Davis for lowest interception percentage (2.53%) and is in the top ten in several statistical categories with his 6,095 yards of total offense and 42 career TDs. If you add Pete’s playing record and his coaching record together, he is 58-7 all-time. What a loser. 2) In 1943, all instruction was halted at UC Davis as the U.S. Army Signal Corps took over the campus and converted it into a training center. Normal operations were not started again until 1945. The U.S. Signal Corps employed Julius Rosenberg from 1940 to 1945. You may remember that Rosenburg and his wife, Ethel were later executed by the U.S. government for selling secrets (specifically about the proximity fuze) to the Soviet Union. See...this one had a happy ending. 1) Since 1909, the city of Davis (formerly known as Davisville) has hosted an event called Picnic Day. The student-run event takes place every April and anyone who ever called Davis home or attended UC Davis is invited to come back to town and campus and mill around aimlessly. The event is basically a large open-house, but features a parade, battle-of-the-bands, and numerous exhibitions. Picnic Day has largely been a success year in and year out because Yogi Bear hasn’t yet caught wind of it.
Opponent preview: What is the best case scenario for UC Davis against Boise State?
by Kevan Lee
No one expects the UC Davis Aggies to come into Bronco Stadium on Saturday and score any points win, except maybe AP voter Scott Wolf. So if the win is out of the question for the UCDers, then what are the Aggies playing for? I’ve got some suggestions, as well as an overview of the Aggie roster. Join me after the jump for a lowered expectations preview, and share your thoughts on what UCD might be happy with come Saturday night.

What UC Davis did last week
The Aggies got off the schnide with a big (?) win over the Western Oregon Wolves. Special teams was solid, defense was opportune, and the offense was at its game-managing best. But let’s give credit where credit’s due: Great West Conference player of the week Kenneth Brown. To the fishwrap!
Perhaps the best single performance of the night, however, belonged to senior cornerback Kenneth Brown, who finished the game with an interception, a forced fumble, a blocked kick, two pass breakups and three tackles. “I was just taking what they were giving me,” Brown said.
Western Oregon was apparently giving out blocked kicks and bad throws.
Defense has been a bright spot for the Aggies in every game where they didn’t face a WAC team. UCD shut out Montana for 30-plus minutes, and the D held Western Oregon to a meager 13 points last weekend. Speaking of Western Oregon, has anyone ever been to Monmouth? I drove through it once, and I most certainly did not remember a college being there. Those are the things you would expect to notice. I’m starting to believe that this game was a ruse, sort of like our moon landing.

Punter Colton Schmidt is capable of pinning opponents deep, which is bully for Doug Martin’s rushing stats. On another note, will we need to resort to two-hand touch on Titus Young on kickoffs this Saturday? (And by “kickoffs,” I mean “the one kickoff to start the game or to begin the second half.”)
Why UC Davis “[The Boise State athletic department] asked me, ‘What do you think about playing Davis?’ and I said, ‘Sounds good,’” Boise State coach Chris Petersen said. “Next thing I know we’re playing Davis.”
Yeah, that sounds about right.
The Aggies are not what you would call a running team just yet, unless you make it a habit of lying or are an elementary schooler who still celebrates opposite day. To wit, UC Davis’ rushing numbers in its first three games: 43 yards vs. Fresno, 43 yards vs. Montana, 60 yards vs. Western Oregon. When they’re not running the ball in a one yard bubble around the line of scrimmage, Greg Denham is passing it, and he’s doing so to the tune of over 700 yards and 57 percent completions. Expect him to be throwing a lot on Saturday.

Spotlight on Bob Biggs
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Coach Pete played at UC Davis. I know, right? It makes Saturday’s game so much more interesting now. But get this: the man running the Aggies on Saturday is none other than Coach Pete’s old offensive coordinator and recruiter. The student has become the teacher. “When you can balance a tack hammer on your head, you can head off your foes with a balanced attack.” Hey-o! But not so fast. The legend of Bob Biggs runs deep and wide, not unlike the man’s forehead. Biggs’ coaching career at UCD is into its 17th season, and he is pushing UC Davis’ career wins leader Jim Sochor for the top spot and a free dinner at Applebee’s, most likely. Biggs is a three-time coach of the year winner, and his innovative pro-style offense churned out NFL journeyman J.T. O’Sullivan. Some might say that Biggs is Bill Walsh’s Mini-Me, assuming that O’Sullivan is three-eighths the quarterback that Joe Montana was. Biggs’ coaching accolades are all well and good, but wait til you get a load of the man’s playing career.
advantage in time of possession. Against Western Oregon, turnovers from the UCD defense helped set up the Aggies with a short field for some big scores. On offense, the passing of Greg Dunham is what keeps the Aggies in ballgames - not necessarily ballgames against WAC teams, but other, less difficult ballgames, for sure. Dunham threw for 300 yards against Montana and had 225 against the WOU Wolves. This pleases Grins McToothsmile, UCD’s mascot with lockjaw.
His legend was sealed in 1971 when he was the quarterback for the Aggies’ “Miracle Win” over Cal State Hayward. In that game, he directed a comeback that featured 16 points in the final 20 seconds and resulted in a 30-29 victory.
But that’s not all.
In his final game as a collegian, Biggs led UC Davis to Atlantic City, N.J., for the NCAA’s Boardwalk Bowl and a clash with Massachusetts. Playing the entire game with a broken finger, he set two national records in the Aggies’ 35-14 loss.
When he wasn’t setting school record books ablaze with only nine working fingers, he also coached tennis for a spell, including a top three finish in the NCAA championships. As Jim McEnroe would say, “You have GOT to be kidding me!”
UC Davis’ hopes and dreams for 2009
The Aggies are one of the Western FCS’ better teams this season, and they were picked by many to finish at or near the top of their conference. Phil Steele had the most good things to say about them, including a mention on his “Most Improved” FCS team list. At the start of the season, the UCD was even getting a little bit of love in the polls. I stress “little bit.” They were No. 42 in the preseason FCS poll and then promptly fell out following a shutout in Fresno. Those FCS pollsters are harsh, unfeeling people. The Western Oregon win has them back “also receiving votes” in some polls. On a personal note (personal to Tommy Hernandez, not personal to me), C Tommy Hernandez might just be the Aggies’ best player, as he was named a second-team All-American.
What UC Davis does well
Well, let me first start off by saying that a discussion of what UC Davis does well is relative. For instance, I do well at cleaning my plate at dinner, but my eating prowess would look weaksauce the moment I walk into a Chuck Wagon. Capiche? The Aggies have had success this season on defense under the watchful eye of new D-coordinator Mark Johnson and his zone blitz scheme. Take away the blowout loss to Fresno State, and UCD’s D doesn’t look all that bad. Against Montana, the Aggies held the Grizzlies to only 86 yards rushing and helped create a 15-minute
Possible outcomes for UC Davis vs. Boise State
Alright, now to the meat of the discussion. It is clear that the Aggies stand little chance of winning on Saturday. The Bronco defense will shut down the run, and the secondary will feast on Greg Denham passes. Kellen Moore can pick apart the UCD defense if given time, but he may not need to if Jeremy Avery and Doug Martin get on track.
If the Fresno result is any indication, Saturday’s game could get ugly. Seriously, though, there are aspects of this game that could turn out to be very interesting, especially for those of us who are easily entertained. If a win is out of the question, then what moral victories can UCD take from this game? What can the Aggies do that might be unexpected? What would the Broncos do that would disappoint the fans or pollsters? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. I’m all ears. Here are a few that I came up with. • A three-and-out: The Broncos have managed the Tres Mal in each of their first four games, so it is certainly a possibility. If UCD can get pressure from its blitzes, we could see Kyle Brotzman on the field for more than just extra point duties. • Avoiding a shutout: The Aggies failed to break the goose egg against Fresno, so it will be no easy task putting up points against the Broncos. Still, there are so many ways to score in a football game that you would have to think their chances of avoiding a shutout on Saturday are at least 50-50. No? Too kind? How about 30-70? 20-80? • Creating a turnover: Can UCD coerce Kellen Moore into throwing a pick? Can they hit hard enough to cause a fumble? For sure, an unforced error from the Broncos (bad exchange, fumbled snap) will definitely be a moral loss for BSU, although I don’t think UCD gets “moral victory” credit for those. • Multiple plays of 20 yards or more: Perhaps this should read “any play of 20 yards or more.” Would anyone bite on that? • A big play on special teams: This could include a blocked kick, a big return, multiple punts inside the 5. • Avoiding penalties: This one has perhaps the least to do with the actual outcome of the game. UCD could finish with zero penalties and still get blown out by seven scores. For Boise State, though, a sloppy, penalty-filled effort will just look bad, especially against an FCS team. Again, this would be a moral loss for the Broncos. • Controlling the clock: In order to do this, the Aggies will have to find their running game. Unfortunately for them, I believe Billy Winn is sitting on it. • Scoring in the two-minute offense: Scoring at all will be a victory, but bonus points all around for doing it with time dwindling in the first half. Plus, it comes with the extra incentive of halftime momentum, for whatever that’s worth. • Holding the Broncos to a field goal in the red zone: Here’s a good one to watch. This is perhaps the most divisive of the situations I’ve listed here. If Boise State is held to a field goal, the Aggies will look good and the Broncos will look bad. With BSU’s struggles in the red zone so far this season, this will definitely be worth some attention.
Boise State is saying all the right things about their FCS opponent this week. This game really will be an opportunity to get better, compete, and take care of business. Next week is a bye for the Broncos, so there is no reason to look ahead. Besides, BSU has yet to put together a complete, perfect game yet, so there is always something to work on.
Richie wants a hug.
For that reason, I see UC Davis being able to accomplish at least one or two of the above “moral victories” (before garbage time, obviously, because once Mike Coughlin is on the field, all bets are off). I think they might get a three-and-out, even if through no effort of their own, with great help from Bronco mistakes. I think they might break a couple big plays, if only because the Bronco defense is playing overly aggressive, looking for the big defensive turnover or hit. What do you think UC Davis will do on Saturday? How many of the above “moral victories” will they take? What are some others that you think we all should consider?
Boise State depth chart versus UC Davis: What? No Doug Harper?
When UC Davis rolls into Bronco Stadium on a wing and a prayer, they’ll be facing a BSU team that is firing on all cylinders. Not that the Broncos will necessarily need all cylinders. As such, the depth chart has few changes from the Bowling Green game, but still plenty of intrigue going into Saturday’s homecoming matchup. How will the kicking game do? What are the updates on the injured Broncos? Find out what stood out to me with this week’s depth chart, and leave your own reaction in the comments.

It will take more than UC Davis to get Michael Atkinson’s ankle onto the field
Atkinson’s ankle is turning into the prima donna Heidi Pratt of Boise State football player body parts. Move over, Matt Kaiserman’s head. Make way, Jamar Taylor’s whatever. It’s Atkinson’s ankle’s world, and we’re all just living in it. Atkinson was scheduled to only serve a three game suspension for his mid-town-Boise interpretation of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride To Hell. But thanks to pesky Mr. Ankle, the suspension was pushed off until Atkinson was healthy enough to serve it, meaning that the Baconator was not eligible until this week. His much-awaited debut might have to wait another week-and-a-half, though, since the ankle was tweaked in practice this week. Does this bother anyone? Is Atkinson going to be the Lavar Arrington of the Boise State football team for the next four years - insanely talented yet always out with something? My friends at Football Outsiders have a saying: Heath is a skill. Anyone here actually believe that? Regardless of whether or not you believe Atkinson to be destined for a life spent in the training room, the most important part to consider about his return to the field and that of fellow injured DT Greg Grimes is the sentiment echoed here by FFBSU:
The Kyle Brotzman - Jimmy Pavel kicking battle wages on in mediocrity
What’s eating Kyle Brotzman? Apparently, it is not the fear that he will lose his job anytime soon. Brotzman’s backup, Jimmy Pavel, doinked an extra point on Saturday, making Pavel’s push to threaten Brotzman’s kicking throne seem quite a ways off. Brotzman’s job is safe, and Bronco Nation is behind him. But please, for the love of all that is good and holy, make a 40-plus yard field goal from the left hash soon.
Doug Martin officially says goodbye to defense
Martin’s name was removed from the defensive depth chart this week, signaling the premature end of the D-Mart Nickel Experience. Of course, we could find ourselves right back here next season if D.J. Harper is healthy.
No changes on the offensive line because you can’t do much better than awesome
Boise State’s O-line was stellar against Bowling Green, and as a reward, everyone got to keep their starting positions. What? No PS3s from boosters? Oh, right. That’s illegal. I probably don’t say this enough, so good job Matt Slater, Kevin Sapien, Thomas Byrd, Will Lawrence, and Garrett Pendergast. In my heart of hearts, I believe that you are the glue that holds the offense together. But don’t tell Kellen Moore I told you that.
To paraphrase Allen Iverson: “We’re talking about UC Davis.” I’ll wait to unleash my serious worries until the depth chart is released for Tulsa.
Jamar Taylor will be back sometime, eventually, maybe, and that’s as specific as anyone is willing to get
On the Gameday Eve of Boise State’s battle with the high-flying passing attack of the Tulsa Golden Hurricane, Jamar Taylor is questionable. I think. UPDATE: Taylor will use his redshirt this year In the meantime, here’s your Matt Kaiserman update.
What has Chris Roberson done for us lately?
The long-snapping duties remain in the hands of Chris Roberson, despite his obvious troubles with long-snapping. Against Oregon, he had a wonky FG snap that led to Michael Choate’s infamous intentional grounding penalty and a Choate demotion to HD2. Against Miami (OH), Roberson was iffy on an extra point snap, ending Kyle Brotzman’s streak of consecutive PATs and Mark Johnson’s streak of consecutive games reminding viewers that Brotzman had a consecutive streak. And then last week in Bowling Green, Roberson sent a rocket two feet over Austin Pettis’ head that Pettis was fortunately able to grab but unfortunately unable to set down in time. James Crawford has got to be beside himself at this point. Roberson and Crawford were locked in a preseason battle for long-snapping duties, so you have to believe that the two players are pretty comparable. Roberson’s long-snapping has been a weak link on multiple occasions for the Broncos. I’m at least curious if his leash is getting shorter.
Freshman tailback Matt Kaiserman likely won’t play again this week. Kaiserman hasn’t played this season because of a head injury but is improving, Petersen said.
Good to know. I will now start Jarvis Hodge in my fantasy league.
Best wishes, ACL tearers
Word out of Bronco camp this week was that ACL tears are the new WWJD bracelet. Everyone wants one! • Chuck Hayes, torn ACL versus BG • D.J. Harper, torn ACL versus Fresno • Mikey Tamburo, two weeks ago • Cory Yriarte, fall camp • Raphiel Lambert, spring camp
continued on page 8
The most surprising name on that list is Tamburo. Just over a month ago, he was duking it out with Joe Southwick for the No. 3 quarterback spot. Now, his Boise State career might be in jeopardy. ACL injuries are no walk in the park, especially for mobile quarterbacks like Tamburo. Best wishes on a speedy recovery. Same to you, Chuck Hayes.
Under no circumstances should anyone want to see Joe Southwick on Saturday
Just so that we’re all clear, if Joe Southwick plays on Saturday, he will burn his redshirt and lose a year of eligibility that should be spent as the starter once Kellen Moore is gone. No matter how lopsided things get and how much you’d rather see Southwick over Coughlin as the mop-up QB, resist the urge to stump for the true freshman. Think of the future, my friends.
Is Mike Coughlin’s head really that tiny?
Great job last week, backup offensive line; but not that great
Coach Pete gave a hearty atta-boy to all five offensive line backups, but it will take more than kind words to get the five big uglies off the pine. Well, at least until the second half on Saturday.
