• It is ashame we lost this past Friday to Nevada.  Obviously Boise State was the better team; we had the chances to make a win, but came up short in the end.  It was one game, one loss of our BSU Bronco Season, and only by only one point.  This game against Nevada, where we were defeated will be our challenge, moving forward knowing we can overcome this defeat and push harder to prove we deserve more than anything to be in that top 5 classification of best College Football Teams in the Nation!  One game doesn’t determine our fate; it doesn’t make us any less of a Football Team this challenge will allow us to show our strength and be that Great Football Team everyone knows we really are & deserves to be recognized as that.  (If you never fail, you’ve never succeeded…)

Famous Failures

I was really inspired by this video.  Recently I’ve been doing a lot of self development physically, mentally, & spiritually trying to figure out what I FULLY want out of life.  So I decided I would share the power of this message and the challenges life gives us. 

"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all." Dale Carnegie

“You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure out what it is you love – who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dream.” Oprah Winfrey

“The challenges of change are always hard. It is important that we begin to unpack those challenges that confront this nation and realize that we each have a role that requires us to change and become more responsible for shaping our own future.”

“We must look for the opportunity in every difficulty instead of being paralyzed at the thought of the difficulty in every opportunity.”

“To succeed, you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you.” Tony Dorsett

“We must accept infinite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” Martin Luther King Jr.

“There is no better place to search for hope than the future; a concept that gives everyone in existence a reason to live.” Amy Newak

“The only limit of our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith.” FDR

"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power." C. Hoppe

“When you have a sense of your own identity and a vision of where you want to go in your life, then you have the basis for reaching out to the world and going after your dreams for a better life." Stedman Graham

"Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that ? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained." Marie Curie

March of Dimes - Governor's Ball

The 3rd Annual March of Dimes Blue Jean Ball hosted by
Honorary Chairs Governor and First Lady Otter

at the March of Dimes - Governor's Ball

The first great polio epidemic in the U.S. was in 1916. The disease infected mostly children, killing thousands and leaving many more paralyzed. On a summer day in 1921, Franklin D. Roosevelt became one of its victims and the March of Dimes was born.

Through life saving research we beat polio, but we continue our efforts to help children today by working to save babies from the silent crisis of premature birth.
Our mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. We carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies' lives. March of Dimes researchers, volunteers, educators, outreach workers and advocates work together to give all babies a fighting chance against the threats to their health: prematurity, birth defects, low birthweight.
