Boise’s new coach, Harsin, impressed by Wallace

We visited with Boise State coach Bryan Harsin a little this afternoon and heard his impressions about Ole Miss and about his first Broncos team as well.

Harsin was a part of the Texas staff that visited Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Hugh Freeze’s first year as Ole Miss coach.

“After being with Texas I know a little bit about the environment they’re from. After I left Texas I watched when they played at Texas. They’re better. They’ve got good talent, and they’ve gotten better at their schemes. They’ve got more confidence, and that’s definitely showing up.”

Harsin is impressed with Bo Wallace.

“They’ve got a good quarterback in Bo Wallace. The guy’s really good. He’s the most experienced quarterback in the SEC. The guy has gotten better and better.”

And much to the delight of Laquon Treadwell, Wallace has gotten stronger and stronger with his right arm.

Good stuff from Treadwell in this video:

The shoulder was an issue for Wallace last year, and his receivers could tell by the zip – or lack thereof – on his passes.

“Sometimes you were like, ‘All right Bo. Throw the ball.’ Now he anticipates, and the ball is there. No waiting. You can tell a lot from last year, the difference,” Treadwell said.
It’s not only about improved arm strength with Wallace.

“His reads are easier. He can get the ball there without you coming out of breaks. It’s on time. You’re not waiting on anything. You can tell a difference a lot.”
