Boise State Athletics Prepared to Adjust to NCAA Governance Change
Oct. 28, 2014
As a firm commitment to remaining nationally competitive with impending NCAA student-athlete reforms, the Boise State Athletic Department plans to provide cost of attendance to all student-athletes across the board. This allowance will begin if NCAA rules allow for such.
Currently, Boise State offers multi-year scholarships for student-athletes and will expand the practice. Each coach and team will determine how best to use these scholarship contracts.
"Boise State is a proven program in the collegiate athletics landscape," said Director of Athletics Mark Coyle. "Our intent is to provide the resources available not only for football, but for each of our 20 sports, to not only win conference championships but to compete with any program on a national level."
The cost of attendance commitment falls in line with a number of high-priority student-athlete enhancement programs for Boise State over the past year. The football training table has been replaced by a new supplemental meal program that allows Bronco football student-athletes to eat on a more regular basis and provides proper nutrition guidance, while also keeping their monthly scholarship stipend intact.
A new $750,000 grass practice complex was christened with the start of fall camp, giving Boise State three different facilities in which to hold workouts and practice. A little more than a year ago, the Broncos moved across the famous blue turf into a state-of-the-art, 70,000-square-foot football center, complete with a 12,000-square-foot weight room, a 6,000-square-foot athletic training center and one of the most unique and spacious locker rooms in the country.
Boise State’s future nonconference football schedules feature a number of high-profile home-and-home series over the next eight years, including Florida State, Virginia, Oklahoma State, Michigan State, Washington, Oregon State, Washington State, Cincinnati and BYU.
"There is no question we are a power program nationally," added head football coach Bryan Harsin. "Boise State football has won more games, appeared in more bowl games and won more championships over the last 15 years than any other school. We've ranked consistently in the top 10 percent in academic standing nationally and have a tremendous track record for graduating student-athletes. And with more than $75 million in facility improvements in the last 10 years, there is a commitment to this program from our university president, Dr. Kustra, and our athletic director, Mark Coyle. Add the cost of attendance stipend into the mix, along with the implementation of other key areas of student-athlete welfare, and we are well positioned as a power program for years to come."
Boise State is currently 6-2 in 2014, bowl eligible for the 13th-straight season and in the hunt for its 12th conference title in the past 16 years. The Five Pillars of The Power Program:
- Since 2000, Boise State owns the most wins (161) and the highest winning percentage (.852) of any FBS college football team.
- The Broncos’ current streak of 12-straight bowl games is tied for the seventh longest in the country. Boise State is set to appear in its 13th-straight bowl game this season and 15th in the last 16 years.
- Included in the bowl streak are BCS victories following the 2006 and 2009 seasons at the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
- Boise State has been ranked in the top 25 every year from 2002-13.
- Boise State was ranked in the top 10 of the final BCS standings in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
- Since 1999, Boise State has won 20 conference or bowl championships.
- The top three college football programs in regards to winning percentage all-time are Notre Dame, Michigan and Boise State.
