The old adage is that the "more things change, the more they stay the same." That could well apply to college football—the yearly migration of athletes in and out of the programs and the way the teams chug along.
Let's visit the past for a moment:
In 2004, a young quarterback named Jared Zabransky took over as the starter for Boise State. Many people had never heard of "Z," but thanks to a dominant first quarter, a pick-six he threw in the fourth and then a come-from-behind touchdown drive in the closing minutes of the 2007 Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma (and flawless execution in overtime), Zabransky become a well-known college football player.
Kellen Moore was not highly recruited coming out of Prosser, WA. In fact, only three teams—one of which was Boise State—expressed interest in him. Moore was redshirted his freshman season (2007), took over the reins of the Broncos in 2008 and the rest is 50-3 history.
What Moore did in the blue and orange was beyond spectacular. It could well have been a feat that will not be equaled for a long, long time. Will the Broncos enjoy success post-Kellen Moore? Absolutely!
And here are the reasons why.
