08:14 AM ET 05.31 | The post-Kellen Moore era has begun in Boise, where, with the possible exceptions Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, there are no bigger shoes to fill in the nation. Junior Joe Southwick and true freshman Nick Patti continue to battle for the starting job after separating themselves a bit from sophomore Grant Hedrick and redshirt freshman Jimmy Laughrea. Southwick was Moore's backup the past two seasons. In addition, head coach Chris Petersen is replacing fellow stars such as running back Doug Martin, left tackle Nate Potter, defensive lineman Shea McClellin and linebacker Byron Hout. The Broncos were decimated by graduation, so we'll see how strong the program is this season without so much experience returning.

MWC in 2012, BE in 2013. The intern monkeys need more coffee.

As to the content of the article, anywhere from 8-4 to 11-1 should be about right. MSU right off the bat will be interesting.

I think the Spartans might not let them in the endzone. Boise State is not Alabama. One does not simply replace their entire team and expect to win games.

How much did Sparty lose defensively from last year? It they didn't lose much, you may be right.

No one is Alabama. Saban could win 5 National championships at Boise State in 4 years.

Air Force, Nevada, and SDSU should all be able to hang with the BSU team in 2012. In 2013 BSU will be back to its norm state and should roll thru the BE without any issues.
