Game recap: McNichols carries Boise State football to road win
That's something, when your back's against the wall, to me that's when it's most difficult and you really shine is when people are pushing against you maybe and our guys didn't listen to any of that. They kept believing and fought and they went out and ...

The community that stood up to coal
I recently visited the tribe's reservation in that "big sky" part of the Western United States, where fences don't obscure the horizon, hawk calls echo between sandstone ridges, the air smells of sage, and where clouds move so fast their shadows look ...

—Boise State sophomore tailback Jeremy McNichols broke tackles to score three touchdowns in a 12-minute stretch late in the game Friday afternoon to lead the Broncos to a 40-23 victory against San Jose State. McNichols, the national leader in touchdowns, caught a pass inside the 5-yard line and dragged a defender to the pylon for the go-ahead touchdown with 2:51 left in the third quarter. On Boise State’s next play, McNichols met linebacker Frank Ginda in the hole, shed the tackle attempt, broke to the left and dashed down the sideline for an 88-yard touchdown run — the longest run in school history. Later in the fourth quarter, McNichols ran through Ginda again on a 19-yard TD run that gave the Broncos a commanding 33-16 lead. McNichols finished with 20 carries for 192 yards, six catches for 40 yards and three total touchdowns. He also extended his Mountain West record with 11 straight games with a TD run and tied a conference record with his seventh straight 100-yard rushing performance. San Jose State quarterback Kenny Potter was 28-for-41 for 336 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 46 yards. Boise State (8-4 overall, 5-3 Mountain West) likely is headed for the Poinsettia Bowl. San Jose State (5-7, 4-4) missed a chance to get bowl-eligible. On an inconsistent team experiencing an up-and-down season, Boise State sophomore tailback Jeremy McNichols has been the safest bet in town. Every week since Mountain West play began, he rushes for at least 100 yards.
In the category of wood- or coal-burning stoves, the embossed ornamentation will encourage a buyer to pay more for it. These types of stoves tend to be more popular in areas where wood and or coal are readily available. Probably the best known of this variety was the potbelly, which was used more for heat than cooking. Many of them came in bright or pastel colors and had all types of accessories, such as built-in salt and pepper shakers, clocks, griddles and rotisseries. Royal blue and candy-apple red are favorites. Things to look out for would be rust pits, burnt-out or poorly fitting parts, and cracks in the cast iron or interior oven wall. Sometimes having an antique is not the best path unless it is completely refurbished and judged safe for use.
