Yeah, I know that sounds so "Zuckerbergian", and I really mean no malice to Boise State and the beautiful state of Idaho, but are you kidding me? I saw bits and pieces of Boise's latest massacre of Louisiana Tech (I believe) on ESPN's Tuesday Night Special, and it really made me realize how far from good our football program really is.
The kids that play for Chris Peterson/sen are not five-star athletes, and Boise is seldom their first choice, but they play with heart, discipline, spirit, and (dare I say) Wooden-like, relentless execution. I saw a tight-end run a skinny post and the QB read the defense and had the time to make a 12 yard pass, that resulted in a 35-yard TD. Instead of waiving his arms around like a circus baffoon, the guy dropped the ball, gave some high fives, and everyone set up for an extra point attempt. This was no dream . . . it really happened.
I'm jealous of Boise State.
