Boise State #2 in Pre-snap Read

+

In his Ohio State preview, he said that it was really hard to pick between the top three teams. Not that Boise State would necessarily beat the other two, but they're more likely than Ohio State to reach the championship game.

A decent write-up of the team.

Every Day Should Be Saturday is unimpressed with the shots fired in this rivalry. At least, from the Boise State side.

Trading Utah for Boise State

Paul Meyerberg of Pre-Snap Read weighs in on how swapping Boise State for Utah affects Air Force (and the rest of the MWC, but mostly from Air Force's perspective). It really doesn't say much except that Air Force's road doesn't get any easier.

EA Sports simulation of this season: Ohio State over Alabama for BCS Championship game

Other notable results: Boise State goes undefeated, does not make the championship game, beats Houston in Sugar Bowl. (Houston, Utah and Boise State all make BCS bowls? That's not realistic. Besides, wouldn't Boise State go to the Rose Bowl if OSU is in the championship?) USC wins PAC 10, and Utah wins the MWC.

From the mailbag, a reader asks: "Looking at the current landscape of college football, what two programs would you most like to see play this year?" He answers: "I'll go with Alabama vs. Boise State." Read the full reply (and other questions) at the site. (Edit: fixed the URL, I hope.)

Boise State is #5 in GatorSports countdown

6

"Weakness: Defensive line/schedule strength. Based on numbers, even this is a stretch. If anything, this is more of a "needs improvement" category. Boise State ranked 72nd in the nation with only 25 sacks, so getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks would help improve the Broncos' defense." Also, Paul Myerberg has Idaho as #75 in his countdown. (And Wyoming #76, saying that "no team could possibly face a tougher slate over its first eight games than do the Cowboys."

VT's opener against Boise State compared favorably to 2004 National Champion USC and 2009 National Champion Alabama openers

"Hardest ever?" the article asks. Not much else substantive in the article, but it's nice to see the comparisons. And man, does VT know how to open a season.

Pre-Snap Read

Paul Myerberg did a college football countdown for the New York Times sports blog, The Quad, for the past two years.  I really enjoyed it, and it was a good way to spend the summer counting down...

SI's Andy Staples talks about the AP Poll and Boise State in an interview with Tomahawk Nation

There are a lot of comments here about Boise State, their SOS, how they'd fare against other teams, and their chances for a national title. (Most of the interview is about Florida State and their new head coach Fisher, but most of the comments are about Boise State.)

An independent schedule

Some time ago, somebody mentioned the idea of Boise State becoming an independent in football.  It's not going to happen, but that doesn't stop a fan from dreaming about the possibility.  Notably,...

I don't think I've seen this posted here yet, but since people (Oregon fans, for example) were talking about our track-around-the-field, I figured this was important enough to post. (And why are we building a football field for high schools?)

Ruining college football as we know it

"Boise State could ruin college football as we know it this season if it goes undefeated." And this is necessarily a bad thing?

Did Graham Watson really just say that Florida lost their first game? Oh, wait. I think she must mean Florida State.

I think he's underrating the team this year, but he does say this: "This team is a national championship contender in 2010."
