The Boise State football program was in a state of uncertainty not long ago. But, what a difference a spring makes.
When head coach Bryan Harsin was hired in December 2013, the Broncos had just endured the tumultuous storm that was the 2013 season. It was a season that ended with a disappointing record, the captain abandoning ship and a few players jumping overboard.
Enter Harsin and his band of brothers.
As soon as Coach Harsin took over, he began to right the ship. He started with hiring excellent assistant coaches and with encouraging a fanbase and community that desperately needed something to smile about.
As the winter turned to spring, new life bloomed in "Bronco Land." The signs of life are everywhere, and the smiles are certainly more frequent.
There is still much work to be done of course, but many who wrote off the Broncos might need to buy an industrial-sized eraser.
Let's look at the things we learned about this newly energized program this spring and what it might point to as the fall season approaches.
