ATHLETIC FACILITIES

BRONCO STADIUM, STUECKLE SKY CENTER & ED JACOBY TRACK

In an effort to continue the climb in competition, Boise State has outlined a plan to improve the infrastructure and financial position of its athletic department. The project is called the “Initiative for Athletic Excellence.” It is a detailed plan that lays out the direction for the department and its facilities to ensure the Broncos’ continued growth and success.

CAVEN-WILLIAMS SPORTS COMPLEX

In the last 12 years Boise State’s growth has led to the addition of women’s soccer in 1998. In 2006-07 women’s swimming & diving joined the family followed by softball in 2008-09. In recent years Boise State has built four competition facilities: the state-ofthe-art Appleton Outdoor Tennis Center (2002), the Boas Soccer and Tennis Complex (2003), Jacksons Indoor Track (2003 - a joint effort with the city of Nampa) and the Mountain Cove Softball Complex (2008). In January of 2006 the Caven-Williams Sports Complex, a 97,000 square-foot indoor practice facility, was opened next to Bronco Stadium. The Boas Indoor Tennis Center also underwent significant renovation with the replacement of the bubbles. The latest project is the Stueckle Sky Center expansion to Bronco Stadium which was finished in 2008. The stadium project includes a new press box, luxury suites, banquet halls, new ticket office, a Bronco Shop, and much more. Seating capacity for football games increased to 33,500. Other future projects include a 10,000-square foot locker room facility and lounges for the men's and women's basketball teams; a new outdoor track stadium and practice area; an updated Peterson PRECO Learning Center; a new home for the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame; and expansion of Bronco Stadium.

CONFERENCE AFFILIATIONS THE WESTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE.. In its 48th year, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and features some of the nation’s best intercollegiate competition. One thing that remains unchanged is the persistent nature of the nine schools in the WAC to advance their programs to contend at the top levels of the NCAA. The WAC provides its student-athletes the chance to travel to scenic destinations and gain exposure in some of the nation’s most diverse markets. In addition, the WAC’s student-athletes work to achieve the highest levels of success with the academic support of their respective institutions. The WAC has experienced tremendous success. Over the past six years, it has won 54.5 percent of its bowl games, the third best winning percentage of any conference in the nation. In the past six seasons, the WAC has sent a total of 22 teams to bowl games (12-10). Boise State has won 76 games since joining the conference, the most in the nation during that time span (2001-07). For the second year in a row, the WAC sent a team to a BCS bowl game as Hawai‘i earned a Nokia Sugar Bowl bid this past season following Boise State’s unforgettable victory in the 2007 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 23 of the past 25 seasons. Every current school in the WAC has competed in the NCAA Tournament since 1990. In women’s sports, Fresno State softball has competed in every NCAA Tournament ever held while Louisiana Tech basketball has played in all but two.

The WAC is the sixth oldest among the nation’s 11 Division I-A conferences. Its history traces back to July 27, 1962, when the original six-team league of Arizona, Arizona State, Brigham Young, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming began competition. B e f o r e 1 9 9 0 , t h e WA C s p o n s o r e d championships only in men’s sports. However, a merger with the High Country Athletic Conference formed a single conference under one administrative structure, and the 1990-91 athletic year was the first in which both men and women competed under the WAC name. Currently the WAC membership consists of Hawai’i which joined in 1979, Fresno State (1992), San Jose State (1996), Nevada (2000), Boise State and Louisiana Tech (2001), and Idaho, New Mexico State and Utah State (2005). Presently, the WAC crowns team and individual champions in 19 sports – eight men’s and 11 women’s. For the men, there are championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, indoor track and field and outdoor track and field. Championships for women are held in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and volleyball. The WAC office has been located in the Denver area since the conference’s inception with the exception of a two-year stay in Phoenix from 1964-66.

BOISE STATE UNIVERSITY


CONFERENCE AFFILIATIONS KARL BENSON WAC COMMISSIONER ALMA MATER: BOISE STATE When Karl Benson was named the fifth commissioner in the history of the Western Athletic Conference on April 20, 1994, he brought with him a wealth of experience and a personal history of success to the position. Since that time, Benson not only has laid a strong foundation for the WAC’s future, he also steered the conference through unsettled times during the late 1990s and again a few years later when the defection of member institutions threatened the WAC. Through his leadership and vision, it didn’t take long for the WAC to regain its place among the nation’s top Division I conferences. Benson has spearheaded conference expansion with the additions of Nevada, Boise State and Louisiana Tech earlier this decade and an additional round of expansion with New Mexico State, Utah State and Idaho joining the league a few years ago. Nationally, Benson has earned the respect of his peers after serving on the NCAA Management Council from 1999-2002, and a five-year term on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee from 200206. Benson hit the ground running when he was hired in 1994 and initiated several programs that improved the conference’s national position in virtually ever category. He was instrumental in developing multi-year agreements with the Holiday Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Copper Bowl, Las Vegas Bowl, Silicon Valley Football Classic, GMAC Bowl and currently, the Roady’s Humanitarian Bowl, Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl and New Mexico Bowl. In 1995-96, the WAC signed an exclusive multi-year agreement with ESPN for the unprecedented live telecasts of basketball and football. Included in that deal was a women’s basketball contract, the

first in conference history. Currently, a second agreement with ESPN and ABC has resulted in 80 football games being televised over the past five years. Benson came to the WAC after four successful years as the commissioner of the Mid-American Conference. There, he implemented several innovative projects and was instrumental in the formation of the Las Vegas Bowl. Prior to taking the reins of the MAC, Benson served on the NCAA staff for more than four years where he was the director of NCAA championships. Benson joined the NCAA staff in January of 1986 as a compliance representative and was appointed assistant director of championships in June 1987. He was promoted to director of championships in 1988. In that position, Benson actively supervised eight assistant directors in their administration of 68 NCAA championships. A native of the state of Washington, Benson graduated from high school in Pullman in 1970, attended Spokane Falls Community College and then received a bachelor of science degree in physical education from Boise State University in 1975. He has also completed coursework toward his master’s degree in athletics administration at the University of Utah. Benson played baseball at both Spokane Falls Community College and Boise State University before serving as the baseball coach at Fort Steilacoom Community College in Tacoma, Wash., for eight years and as the director of athletics at Fort Steilacoom from 1979-84. From 1984-86, he was an assistant baseball coach and an administrative assistant in the athletic department at Utah. He received the Distinguished Alumni Award from Boise State in April of 2006. Benson was born on December 1, 1951 and has one daughter, Jessie, 17.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING

COACH SOCHA’S PHILOSOPHY

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING COACHES

Head strength and conditioning coach Tim Socha’s philosophy is that student-athletes are not only going to train hard, but that they are going to do the correct exercises that help them excel in their sport. The staff uses variation in the training programs to enhance the student-athletes’ ability to adapt and improve. The variation involves both multi-joint and multi-plane training. Flexibility, core strength and proprioceptive training also is included in all programs. Through all of the training, sport specificity is emphasized, and the one thing that will never be forgotten is that hard work is what wins championships. All 19 Boise State varsity athletic teams utilize the strength and conditioning center. Each team has a sport-specific program designed to help each student-athlete increase his or her athletic potential and decrease the chance of injury. Boise State coaches take pride in the fact that their student-athletes are some of the best conditioned in the nation. The facility is fully equipped with many different machines, as well as various free weight equipment.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS GENE BLEYMAIER, Boise State Director of Athletics NCAA Division I Management Council and is also past president and vice president of the NCAA I-AA Athletic Directors’ Association. He is also a member of the Boise-based World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame board of directors.

Under Gene Bleymaier’s leadership, Boise State University’s Department of Athletics has scaled impressive and unprecedented heights with the accomplishments of its studentathletes, the successes of its teams, the growth of its facilities, the support of its community, and the advancement of its status among the nation’s premier athletic programs.

Under Bleymaier’s guidance, Boise State’s football program has grown spectacularly and gained national attention since it joined the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly I-A) ranks in 1996. Competing at the highest collegiate level, Boise State has put itself on the national map with as the winningest football program among FBS programs the past 10 years (2000-09). Boise State has the best overall record (112-17, .868%), the best winning percentage for conference games (734, .948%), the best home record (63-2 .969%), and has been the highest-scoring team in the nation since 2000 (41.40 points per game). The Bronco football team ended the season undefeated (14-0) with a victory over TCU in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl and a No. 4 national ranking.

Bleymaier is in his 30th year at Boise State. He joined the Athletic Department in 1981 and became the Broncos’ AD in February of 1982. He is the second longest tenured athletic director in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

In 1986 Bleymaier was responsible for the installation of the artificial blue turf in Bronco Stadium, which has become one of the most recognizable sports venues in America and the city of Boise’s most famous landmark.

The 2009-10 Bronco athletic season was another banner year and led to Bleymaier being one of five nominees for the Street and Smith’s Sports Business Journal and Sports Business Daily Athletic Director of the Year. Bleymaier was the only nominee from a nonBowl Championship Series conference school. In June 2008 Bleymaier received the Astro Turf Athletic Director of the Year Award.

In 1996 he led Boise State’s move to FBS as a member of the Big West Conference, and in 2001 he guided the Bronco Athletic Department’s transfer to its current membership in the WAC. Boise State will move to its third FBS league in 2011-12 when the Broncos become members of the Mountain West Conference.

This past year Boise State captured four Western Athletic Conference Championships (football, soccer, women’s tennis and swimming & diving) and finished the 2009-10 season winning the WAC Commissioner’s Cup. Four teams completed their seasons ranked in the top 20 which led to a 60th place finish in the Learfield Sports Director’s Cup. Boise State also excelled in the classroom this past year with six Bronco teams leading the WAC in the annual NCAA Academic Program Reports. The football team also posted the 4th highest APR score for schools competing in 2009 postseason bowl games. Bleymaier is currently the WAC’s representative to the BCS. In 1997 Bleymaier led the effort to create the Humanitarian Bowl – now called the Udrove Humanitarian Bowl – and he continues to serve on the board of directors for the annual postseason football game. He served a fouryear term as the WAC representative on the

Since joining the WAC in 2001, Boise State has won 27 conference championships, including seven in football. Prior to joining the WAC, Boise State won 15 team titles as a member of the Big West Conference and 33 overall league championships in the Big Sky Conference from 1982-1995, all under the guidance Bleymaier. Boise State sponsors 19 intercollegiate sports – eight for men and 11 for women. All teams compete in the WAC with the exception of wrestling (Pac-10). Behind Bleymaier’s guidance, Boise State student-athletes have also excelled in the classroom. During the 2009-10 academic year, 151 Bronco student-athletes received conference all-academic honors. Following the spring 2010 semester, Bronco student-athletes posted the sixth straight semester the overall athletic department’s grade-point-average was 3.00 or higher. Fifty-eight (58) percent of all

student-athletes earned a 3.0 or better GPA for the spring 2010 semester While Boise State has enjoyed unprecedented success on the playing fields, courts and in the classroom, it has also drastically improved its facilities under Bleymaier’s direction. In August of 2008 the most expensive capital project in the history of Bronco athletics opened with the $36 million Stueckle Sky Center which includes a state-of-the-art press box, suites, loge boxes and club seats. Plans are currently in the design phase for another major expansion to Bronco Stadium in the near future. On August 1, 2009 Boise State officially acquired control of the 15.5-acre East Junior High School site from the Boise School District with plans to build future athletic facilities there. Located just northeast of the main campus, the first project planned will be to move Ed Jacoby Track from Bronco Stadium and build a new track and field facility. The newest facility will break ground in the fall of 2010 when construction begins on a new men’s and women’s basketball locker room complex at Taco Bell Arena. Completion of the state-of-art facility is expected in the late spring of 2011. Recent additions the past four years include the Caven-Williams Sports Complex, a $9.5 million indoor practice facility that includes a full size football field and the Keith and Catherine Stein Band Hall, and the Mountain Cove Softball Field. Other capital projects completed during Bleymaier’s tenure include the Boas Tennis/ Soccer Center, a 1997 expansion of Bronco Stadium, the Allen Noble Hall of Fame Gallery, the Williams Plaza, the Peterson-Preco Learning Center, the Appleton Outdoor Tennis Center, the Jackson Indoor Track, the Idaho Sports Medicine Institute, the Bronco Football Center, the gymnastics room expansion, the Simplot Center for Athletic Excellence, the Fedrizzi Fitness Center expansion, and an expansion of the Nicholson-Yanke Center. Bleymaier served as an assistant athletic director at UCLA prior to coming to Boise State. A member of the California Bar Association and a graduate of the Loyola Law School, Bleymaier received his bachelor’s degree from UCLA. Bleymaier lettered in football and was named to the All-Pac 8 Conference third team as a tight end for the Bruins. He was the recipient of the UCLA Outstanding Senior Award and was active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Bleymaier graduated from Borah High School in Boise. Bleymaier and his wife, Danell, have four children – Maribeth, Joe, Claire and Tom.
