When Bryan Harsin arrived in Boise to become the new head coach of the Broncos, there was much work to be done. Now, nearly four months later, the considerable amount of work that he, his staff and his players have put in appears to be paying big dividends.
Last week was the first Blue and Orange Spring Game with Harsin at the helm for Boise State, and overall it would have to be deemed a success.
The newly installed defense stole the show, with several players on that side of the ball making big plays and flying around the field. The offense, on the other hand, struggled at times. However, they also had some decent individual efforts that should encourage Boise State fans.
As spring practice ends, the Boise State coaching staff will now look forward as the first game of the season against Ole Miss rapidly approaches.
