Draft Scout Joe Southwick News
12/23/13 - Boise State QB Southwick suspended for Hawaii Bowl...Boise State quarterbacks Joe Southwick and Nick Patti were suspended from the Hawaii Bowl for violating team rules, but Southwick says he did nothing wrong. Southwick told Boise television station KTVB on Sunday that he was sent home for urinating off a hotel balcony, but said another player did it. Patti has since been reinstated for the game. Southwick said he saw the player urinate off the balcony Thursday night and found out Friday he was the one accused. He also said he lost his temper after being suspended. "It just turned to finger pointing, and it ended up being three people against one person saying something," Southwick said. "And I guess the temper tantrum of one person didn't look good and there was no investigation. This was an absolute rushed decision, probably made in about 20 minutes."
Southwick then took a polygraph test in an attempt to clear himself of the incident. "I don't want this to turn into me against Boise State," Southwick said. "I love Boise State. What they've been able to do for me these past five years, is life changing. And this situation that occurred the last five days could also be life changing, obviously for the negative for me. "It's just really important for myself and my family to get this cleared up and show that really the decision makers in place had a rushed decision, there was no process to properly judicate what happened. It's really disappointing that it came to this." Boise State plays Oregon State on Tuesday in Honolulu. - The Sports Xchange
12/21/13 - Boise State sent home quarterback Joe Southwick on Friday and reinstated backup Nick Patti. After the two quarterbacks were suspended from practice Friday for violating team rules, Broncos interim head coach Bob Gregory said that Southwick was sent home for his violation and that Patti was reinstated for practice and the Hawaii Bowl on Tuesday against Oregon State. Boise State declined to comment further.
Southwick returned to action Nov. 30 against New Mexico in the regular-season finale after breaking his right ankle Oct. 19. Patti has appeared in six games, completing 8 of 11 passes for 63 yards. Grant Hedrick is expected to start against Oregon State. In 12 games this season, he completed 135 of 198 passes for 1,443 yards and 15 touchdowns. - AP Sports
10/21/13 - The Broncos lost their offensive leader on their first play from scrimmage in the 34-17 victory over Nevada when quarterback Joe Southwick suffered a broken ankle while scrambling.

10/13/13 - Joe Southwick passed for a career high 335 yards and two touchdowns on 30-of-44 passing as Boise State topped Utah State 34-23 Saturday night. Shane Williams-Rhodes caught 13 of Southwick's passes for 150 yards and a touchdown while running back Jay Ajayi added 109 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries. The Broncos (4-2, 2-1 Mountain West) gained 26 first downs to USU's 16 in the game and gained 447 yards of total offense.
Junior Craig Harrison made his first start at quarterback for Utah State (3-4, 2-1 Mountain West) after Chuckie Keeton, three-year starter for the Aggies, suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first quarter of a loss to BYU last week. Harrison went 7 of 17 for 105 yards and rushed for 36 yards. Freshman Darell Garretson replaced Harrison with 9:23 to play in the third quarter and went 9 of 14 for 116 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. - AP Sports
09/29/13 - Joe Southwick threw for 268 yards and three touchdowns and Jay Ajayi rushed for 83 yards and another touchdown to help Boise State get back on track with a 60-7 victory over Southern Mississippi Saturday night. The Broncos also got help from special teams, which blocked two field goals and forced a fumble on a punt return, and a defense that rebounded after getting torched a week ago in a 41-40 loss against longtime rival Fresno State.
The offense for Boise State (3-2, 1-1 Mountain West Conference) started slowly, going three-and-out on its first two possessions. But Southwick, with the help of some big runs by Aaron Baltazar and Jay Ajayi, got things rolling, putting up points on nine of their next 10 possessions en route to the most lopsided of Boise State's four straight victories over Southern Miss since 2007. Southwick was sharp again, completing 19 of 23 passes before heading to the bench in the third quarter. He threw touchdown passes of 42, 18 and 14 yards and his 52-yarder to Geraldo Boldewijn set up Ajayi's 4-yard TD run just before the half. - AP Sports
