Draft Day Been Good for Boise State

So to wrap NFL draft day up for Boise State – two first rounders, then four more draftees taken in rounds 3-7, then five more signed before the end of the day as free agents. Beats anything we’ve done in the past.

Round 1, #19. Shea McClellin went to “Da Bears”. As a Packer fan this stings a little bit because I know Green Bay was eyeing him. So, did the Bears do it on purpose – get a great pass rusher to pressure Rodgers, and then rub a little salt in the wound? Prolly.

Round 1, #31. Doug Martin was picked up by Tampa Bay. This is arguably the best pick of the day (aside from the #1 and #2, of course). He will fit perfectly in their system.

Round 3, #81. Tyrone Crawford to Dallas. Damn. I’m really not a Cowboys fan (used to be, back during Landry and Staubach eras), so I’m not looking forward to cheering Tyrone on. On an interesting note, I read that Tyrone was considered the #2 pick overall for the CFL (he’s Canadian), but wanted to get a shot first in the NFL.

Round 5, #167. George Iloka to Cincinatti. I really don’t follow Cincy at all, but I guess the Bengals must need a great safety. They got one.

Round 6, #205. Billy Winn to the Cleveland Browns. I really don’t follow Cleveland at either. But, Billy does seem to fit in with the whole rugged Browns image. I guess we’ll see.

Round 7, #221. Nate Potter to Arizona, where he will be joining former Bronco Daryn Colledge on the offensive line.

After the draft was over, Kellen Moore signed with the Detroit Lions as a free agent. After I heard this it was like a bell went off in my head – it’s an ideal fit for him. Detroit currently has two QBs on the roster, so he’ll get a chance to play. He will be throwing to Titus Young again, which is actually kinda unfair for the Detroit secondary in practice.

Chase Baker signed with the Minnesota Vikings, Aaron Tevis with the New Orleans Saints, Tyler Shoemaker will be joining Doug Martin at the Buccaneers training camp, and Jarrell Root joins the Miami Dolphins.

All in all, a pretty good day to be a Bronco.

Go Broncos!

    Does San Jose State Accept Summer Courses Prior To Transfer? Im planning to transfer to San Jose state university for fall 2012. I heard UC’s dont accept summer semester before transfer and San Francisco State doesnt accept it either. How about San Jose State?
    I tried looking for it at their website but could not find any answers. If you know can you also show me the page where you found it.

      I think you should take the courses you need at a junior college.

      You can call San Jose State and speak with an academic advisor.

    How Hard Is It To Change Your Major As A Transfer At San Jose State.? Hi

      There is usually no problem at all with changing your major. Your major is what you say it is, and you can change your mind at any time. But there are consequences, of course. In order to complete a major (one of the requirements for graduation), you have to take certain specific courses in that field. Every time you decide to major in something different, the picture changes, and there will be different specific courses you will need to take. As long as you are willing to put in the necessary time and keep track of what parts of the major you have fulfilled, you are free to change majors (and make up the missing courses) as often as you like.

      If you’re living on campus and looking for connections with the outside world – SJSU is your school. The campus is beautiful, the experience is AMAZING, & even though it’s a CSU – it’s very well respected. My second choice would be UC Davis. It’s a little less social but from everyone who has ever gone there, I have only say them say positive things about the place. People often feel safe & from what I’ve heard — the campus is nice! Uni of the Pacific is my last choice BUT intellectually it’s still an amazing school. They offer pretty intense programs but lack the social experience. For example, instead of doing four years of pre law & then four years of grad school to become a lawyer – you can do it ALL in seven years including going to their grad school in Sacramento & work hands on with politicians in the area. All three schools offer great experiences but it really depends on what you want to study, how social you want to be, & HOW MUCH money you can bring out. SJSU is pretty legit, UC Davis is okay regarding its price tag, but Uni of the Pacific could rip you apart. Either way, good luck on the whole college thing!

      San Jose State is not a top-tier school, but your GRE scores are not that great, either. Generally speaking, anyone who wants to study abroad, since competition for foreign students’ places is tougher than for citizens, should aim for percentile scores above the 90th percentile to have a good chance of acceptance, even at a lower-rated school. That means scores 160 or better on each section, verbal & quant. Scores at least 98th percentile for the most competitive schools.

      Hard to say. Going to depend on who else is applying with what credentials, grades, test scores, and what exceptional achievements they have attained. Obviously, admission is a competition, and those only meeting minimum requirements to apply won’t get in.

    Which Is Better… San Jose State Or Humboldt State University? Okay so i was accepted to both. I am moving from Los Angeles (I am so tired of this place). I am in my mid 20’s and am looking for a great education and quality experience (im not a frat guy AT ALL). In general, I hate suburbs but I also get a bit nervous being in super small towns. I love nature and fog and rain, but i also like nightlife and quaint little places. I am stuck as to which to choose. If you have attended one of these, please give feedback of your experience.

      Assuming both schools offer the curriculum you want, it’s just a matter of which kind of experience you want to have–small town or suburb.

      Actually San Jose is not really a suburb. It must seem like one to you, compared to LA. But It’s bigger than San Francisco! It’s surrounded by its own suburbs.

      Humboldt State is in the Eureka/Arcata area. It’s not a -super- small town, it’s on a major highway and there are several towns in the neighborhood, small to medium-sized. It’s very pretty, and ‘interesting’ in terms of climate, geography, etc. It’s fun to explore. You do have to get used to the weather, lots of rain and fog and overcast days. An LA boy might get tired of the place in a year.

      San Jose is much more diverse, there’s more to see, more cultural opportunities, more kinds of people, more kinds of food, and you have the whole Bay Area at your fingertips–San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, Santa Cruz, etc. etc.

      I went to San Jose State for one semester and I absolutely hated it. I found it very crowded, hard to find parking, and the campus was so big that sometimes you have to walk half a mile between classes. I grew up in San Jose and lived there, and it was a hassle to get downtown every day; it might have been better if I lived near the campus. I had one class, the intro psych class that everyone has to take, that was taught in a small theater and had about 200 students. I decided I wanted to go to a smaller, friendlier college, so I moved to Cal St. Hayward.

      Humboldt would be smaller and more personal. You could spend more time with professors and instructors. You might get into more interesting discussions after class. The whole tone of the place might be more laid back and relaxed, not as competitive, not as much of a rat race. Then again you might feel like you were trapped on a desert island. 8^)

      San Jose itself is kinda of disappointing, but it’s centrally located so great locations are all within about 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hour away.

      Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is a great destination. Fantastic old fashioned beach boardwalk / amusement park.

      Monterey is another great destination. Lots of scenery, plenty of beaches between here and there if you take 17 over the hills and then 1 south.

      If you want a really unique dining experience, check out Shadowbrook in Capitola. I’ve linked to the website, but the website doesn’t even mention that their are gardens to tour through, a tram elevator down to the restaurant, and the fact that it’s along a canal that’s nice to look at.

      If you go north instead, there’s San Francisco. Check out the umpteen guidebooks available for SF for things to do and see.

      If you go north on the other side of the bay, you hit the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Great for wine tasting and fantastic scenery and eats.
