I really really really like Boise State football. I graduated from the university in May of 2009 and went to nearly every home game and several road games during my four year tenure. I also grew up in the Boise area and attended several games over the years. I have yet to witness, first hand, a Bronco loss. I am left to assume that televised games aren't just playing mind games with me when I watch the Broncos fall short. It almost feels like a dream. I went to the Oregon game in Eugene with very little optimism and left with a perma-grin. I also attended the TCU Fiesta Bowl and the Georgia Game (2011). Until I see the Broncos defeated with my own two eyes, I will assume they will win every game I attend. I wish I had gone to Reno 2010 and to the TCU home 2011. If I didn't hate the idea of Detroit, I would have been in East Lansing too.

Vegas Bowl looking OK this year - Possibly better than OK

The Vegas Bowl could actually provide a good opponent this year. They take the Pac 12 #5 team and after last weekend, it looks like that could be a close to ranked (possibly ranked) team. As a...

Who is the attractive blond BSU fan with floor tickets in Miami for the Celtics game? Tickets are over $5,000 a piece for a game like that. Gene, get her on the phone and let her know we need money for our stadium. On a side note, if we get invited to the Orange Bowl and she'll be there, count me in.

Possibilities that favor Boise State's BCS bowl chances

4

Would ESPN bail us out by arranging the match ups so that we get to the Fiesta against Nebraska or Oklahoma? In the BCS bylaws: "5. After completion of the selection process as described in Paragraph Nos. 1-4, the conferences and Notre Dame may, but are not required to, adjust the pairings taking into consideration the following: A. whether the same team will be playing in the same bowl game for two consecutive years; B. whether two teams that played against one another in the regular season will be paired against one another in a bowl game; C. whether the same two teams will play against each other in a bowl game for two consecutive years; and D. whether alternative pairings may have greater or lesser appeal to college football fans as measured by expected ticket sales for the bowls and by expected television interest, and the consequent financial impact on ESPN and the bowls. The pairings may not be altered by removing the Big Ten Champion or Pac-10 champion from the Rose Bowl."

This just in: BYU still thinks they are Notre Dame

Now they are just plain arrogant. Playing in the WAC is going to cripple all of BYU's other sports. The WAC is obsolete even with BYU hoops.

Look for a BYU announement to stay in MWC as early as today

Here's hoping... now who will be the 12th member... say it ain't Utah State!

The expansion of the Pac-10 Colorado and Utah is not set in stone

How is it not set in stone? Just curious... have contracts not been signed? This guy is a bit holier than thou sounding as he bashes Utah's Academics. Sheesh.

Utah and Colorado not set in stone as PAC 10 members

10

Apparently several important people disagree with the additions. I tend to agree with those people. Colorado offers very little in a pro-sports town and Utah has a smaller fan base than most people think. I don't see how adding these two schools would increase revenue for everyone because the pie must be cut into more slices.

ESPN Power Rankings: BSU #3

There are some REAL bad ideas out there. Pat Forde kept to his word after the Fiesta Bowl and ranked Boise State #1. Ted Miller (PAC 10 blogger) was insane as he ranked TCU at #4 and Boise State at #12!

BYU possibly in discussions with the Big XII

The Big XII AD's meet today in Dallas. The word I got today is that BYU AD Tom Holmoe flew to Dallas last Friday & is there today. Coincidence? Sorry, no link or any reliable source. Just thought I'd throw this out there to get people nervous... I know I am.

Texas to Stay in the Big XII

10

This is horrific for Boise State. I foresee Utah becoming the Pac 10's 12th team and when Texas A&M leaves they will be replaced by TCU or BYU.

Big XII leftovers would be drawn to Big East over the MWC

4

In other words, Craig Thompson needs to to be much more proactive or this whole thing is going to leave him with the status quo in his conference with everyone else getting stronger. Add Boise State, Nevada and Fresno and hope to be that 6th Auto-qualifier when the dust settles.

So much for the MWC taking Big XII leftovers - Big East more attractive

+

It would make much more sense for Kansas, K-State, Iowa State and Missouri to join forces with the Big East. The MWC should take Fresno, Boise and Nevada and pray for that 6th BCS Automatic Bid with 12 teams.
