Week in Review (WIR) won't be closing out the week for the first time in this site's brief history. There is a lot more good stuff to come. We'll be back with photos from the football scrimmage this afternoon. Then, we'll be live-blogging the men's basketball game tonight and checking in with our man in Birmingham. David Augusto photos? Perhaps!
Spring football gets OBNUG in the mood to speculate, so over the next few weeks, we will be making blind guesses as to who will be starting for the Broncos in the fall. We’ll do it position-by-position. Today: Receivers.
Boise State football starting receivers
Ideal candidate: a 6'6" Tim Gilligan
Worst candidate: Captain Hook
Actual candidates: Jeremy Childs, Titus Young, Austin Pettis, Vinny Perretta, Julian Hawkins, Chris O'Neill, Ryan Putnam, Toshi Franklin, Tanyon Bissell, Tyler Shoemaker, various others
OBNUG's pick: Childs, Young, Pettis, and Perretta; O'Neill as the traditional tight end
What a stable of receivers. Next to running back, this position is the deepest, most talented on the roster. The starters are pretty obvious (Childs, Young, Pettis), but the addition of Perretta is where things get interesting. Will he be the fourth receiver? Will he have his own special package? Will he start at QB? Who knows? We can't wait to find out.
Former Boise State QB Taylor Tharp ran through drills at Colorado University's Pro Day yesterday. At least we think he did.
Also working out was Boulder native Tyler Tharp, who just finished his career as a quarterback at Boise State.Tyler?
We feel sorry for Tharp. First, no one wanted to see him throw at BSU's Pro Day. Now, his evil twin brother steals the spotlight in front of scouts at Colorado. Can't he catch a break?!

Buster Bronco lost in his bid to become the cover mascot for NCAA Football 09 for the Wii, losing out to Michigan State's Sparty Spartan and his giant fake eyebrows. Keep your kids away from the box art! That's a nightmare waiting to happen.
Over 700,000 votes were cast resulting in a very close race. The final top 10 went as follows: Michigan State, Central Florida, Washington State, Auburn, LSU, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa State, Alabama, Penn State.We anxiously await Bob Stoop's reaction.

Boise State doesn't tip-off until tomorrow night. We'll be there. Look for us on TV. Until that time when Reggie Larry-ness sweeps the nation, we've got this for you. Besides, who doesn't love to wake up to Paul J's voice in the morning?
