Oh, the rumors. They seem to swirl a lot around this popular name and even if they have nothing to do with Boise--the man around which they swirl will always have ties to this place that we call home.

It's that time of the year--football season in the college ranks is over and in the pro's, many teams have wrapped up their season as the playoffs aren't in their future. Along with players transferring and moving around--we often see coaching changes as well.

There's no denying that Chris Petersen is a Boise legend...
