During the college football offseason, there are many different thoughts, ideas and questions thrown around by fans, the media and by people who seem far to bored or have way too much time on their hands.
This offseason is no exception.
As signing day edges closer, folks from all over the land study, analyze and try to predict their beloved team's latest recruiting class. The closer the day gets the louder the conversations.
Boise State is certainly one of those schools whose fanbase seems to be excited and waiting to see just how good the 2013 class will be. All indications are that it will be one of the best, on paper, the Broncos have ever had.
According to ESPN.com, the Broncos have 25 members in their 2013 recruiting class. Of those, five are junior college transfers, and of those, four have already signed. That leaves 21 commitments yet to put pen to paper.
The overall list for Boise State includes two 4-star commits and 20 more that are considered 3-star players. However, not a single player in Chris Petersen's 2013 class makes the ESPN Top 150 or even the Top 300.
Compare that list to a team like Alabama, and you quickly realize the glaring difference.
According to the same ESPN.com rankings, Alabama has 22 commitments. The Crimson Tide's list boasts one 5-star recruit, 16 4-star recruits and 4-three star recruits. Of that group, 14 are considered Top 300 and 10 of those are Top 150, according to ESPN.
Which, brings us full circle to questions that spring from boredom this time of year.
What could Chris Petersen do with Alabama's 2013 recruiting class?
Let's take a look at the possibilities.
