We have reached that point in fall camp where there is starting to be the separation between players out on the field.

The team will play their first scrimmage this Thursday.  Coach Harsin has been impressed from top to bottom with his coaches and players of what he has seen in practices.

With that said Harsin says the team is long ways away from being game ready but some of that will be figured out later this week.

"I think the teaching is really good.  I think the players have been more engaged and on the practice field.  the difference is when there is a challenge when something comes up, there is a little adversity nobody is shying away from it.  Nobody is pouting about it.  They just go out there and ask whats the challenge is and go onto to the next one,” said, Head Coach Bryan Harsin.

Coach Harsin touched on his wide receivers and how he is dealing with his depth at the wide out position.

Last season we saw the likes of Cedrick Wilson and Thomas Sperbeck be the deep threats that quarterback Brett Rypien was able to find.

This season there are several new faces that will need to earn their stripes.  AJ Richardson has the most career receptions among the group with 12.

"There has been quite a bit of a mix, just trying to see guys and move guys around a little bit. Cedrick Wilson is continuing to practice at a high level.  I think AJ Richardson has really stepped up and has elevated his game,” said, Harsin.

It's worth noting the Boise State football team was going to make player interview sessions for the next three days but have canceled them.

The next time we will be able to visit with a player on the team is suppose to be scheduled for next Monday. 

The reasoning is coach Harsin wants his players to focus on this Thursday's scrimmage and have a game like a mentality.
