Tucker Botkin


Born and raised in Boise, Idaho, I am a die hard Boise State fan and current student

Nothing will ever replace the memories I have of sitting in our small garage-turned-family room watching whatever sport was in season. Learning about protecting the blind-side and checking the runner, Pat Summerall and Jon Miller were my teachers, and I, their best student.

With nothing professional in the Boise area, and my dad holding season tickets to what was then Cougar Stadium in Provo, we would make the 6 hour drive on select Saturdays in the Fall to see what LaVell Edwards had going for him that week.

Being a bit of a contrarian and naturally wanting to find my own place in life, I gravitated to the blue turf and the winning attitude at Boise State. It has turned out to be a wise move as we have since become the winningest program of the century.

My main interest are in college sports, primarily football and basketball.

    I am surprised by the number of people who actually want to reserve the right to bad-mouth their teams! I offer constructive criticism, of course, but one in particular wants to be able to say, "they suck," if they do.

    I don't get it. Will YOU take the pledge?

    Thank you, sir. Same to you. That wasn't how I expected the game to go, but I couldn't have asked for a better game either. Both sides impressed (as we predicted) and both sides showed great sportsmanship and respect for either side. I'd love to see another game scheduled between the two in the near future. What a freakin' incredible matchup! Y'alls' future squad is simply terrifying.

    I just wrapped up my first semester at the University of Texas at Arlington and am taking the basic freshman courses but my major is declared Journalism right now. It could change but not too much as I'd like to stay in the Communication district. Congratulations on the kids, I'm sure they'll both grow up to be terrific Bronco fans. I need to get to makin' more TCU fans, we can't even fill our stadium without inviting Texas Tech.
