Boise State is unworthy, and this is why

If Boise State beats Oregon State tonight, the Broncos are a safe bet to finish the regular season undefeated, and therefore in position to create another BCS controversy.

Which is absolute dung.

In the college football that I know and love, there are no "safe bets" to run the season and finish it undefeated if you win your first game. That's nonsense, but that's the reality for Boise State. Which means Boise State is nonsense.

Boise State as a national title contender, I mean.

Pick a school from a BCS conference. Georgia, Florida, Oklahoma, Texas, USC, Ohio State, (OK, don't pick one from the Big East. That league sucks.) If any of those teams wins their first game, are they a safe bet to run the table? Of course not.

Boise State is, but only because Boise State's schedule includes Miami (Ohio) and Nevada and something called UC Davis. Georgia plays Florida. Oklahoma plays Texas. USC plays Ohio State. And there are plenty more tough games where those came from.

Boise State is a nice story, and probably a pretty good football team. But Boise State as a national title contender? Come on. You don't really believe it, right?

Boise State is unworthy, and this is why

The Boise State Broncos football program represents in the . The program is best known for its 2006 season , in which it posted a 13–0 WAC Championship season capped by an overtime win in the against the . BSU finished the season as the only major undefeated college football team, but became the first team since the 2004–2005 season with an unblemished record that did not receive a share of the national championship.

Boise State has gone over the 75-percent barrier in winning percentage, displacing Michigan as the #1 college football team. Since being accepted as a major college team in 1996, the Broncos are 128-42.

Boise State Atheltic Director has tried to make good deal with any other big BCS School for one home and one away series however Big BCS School turned down the offer because Boise State has smaller seats than Big BCS School plus travel expenses etc.  Boise State Atheltic Director has no other choice asked mid major school to make deal for one home and one away series which it is better than nothing at all.  Boise State needs fan support Boise State University Football program.  Only Washington State, Oregon and Oregon State came to Boise  to play aganist Boise State which I admired them for being brave and did it the fair way.

Boise State Atheltic Director has tried to contact Pacific Conference Commissioner and Mountain Conference Commissioner to expand and invite Boise State to join either of them but both Commissioner has turned down for some reason.  So What choice Boise State Atheltic Director has to make so once for all he has decided to do on road series rather one home and one away series so that way Boise State would build more seats so that way big BCS School would come down to Boise State.  It will take some time to complete the assignment.

Boise State has won two national championship  Junior College (1958) and 1 AA (1980). There is no other College Football Program has done.

Boise State begin accepted as a major college team for 13 years.  Boise State played aganist Oregon State, UCLA, Arizona State , Oregon and Wahington State Powerhouse in the begin accepted as a major college team which helped Boise State Football coaches to recuriting better player to fill the hole.  That is how they began to develop and getting better every year. 

Boise State Football program has one long range goal is to win the National Championship as a major college Football program. 

Do you think it is fair for Boise State to play all 13 road games at any Big BCS School and no home game? How can we solve the problem to make 6 road game and six home games with any BSC School football schedule?

In the beginning of the season Boise State beat Oregon.  As matter of fact, Boise State has beaten Oregon twice already.  So Far Oregon has beaten USC who ranked 5th in the nation  Suppose Oregon won Pacific Ten Conference Championship and Boise State won WAC Conference.  Boise State has proven to National football fans, coaches, and writer that they are capable to play in the National Championship.  My questions is when will National writers and coaches allow Boise State to play for National Championship?

Boise State is unworthy, and this is why

2006 - Lost to Boise, but Oklahoma wasnt even good this year.  The only reason we were in the Fiesta Bowl is because Texas choked and lost two easy games in a row doen the stretch.  This wasnt a choke....this was OU being overrated simply because we were big 12 champs.  Remember, this is the year we had a WR playing QB
2007 - missing 5 starters......but got thrashed by WVU.   Granger, Murray, Smith, Holmes, and Kelly all out for this one.
2008 - Lost to Florida in Florida...as would pretty much any other team in the country.
Sounds like a bunch of excuses to me...if OU was so terrible and had so many "unfortunate" events happen to them then why were they even considered to play in these games.  If I remember right, last years team was "one of the best" teams they ever had on the field.  I live with an OU fan and he claims they expect excellence and are supposed to win against ANYONE.  I love the 2006 excuse, on paper and in all big conference bias, any big conference champion was expected to win against the "lowely" WAC.  Hence, the conference not getting an automatic bid into a BCS bowl game.  Lets just call a spade a spade.  If they are so great, then they should be able to win bowl games.  Period.

Which is absolute dung.ahh, perhaps a subject you know a great deal about

Boise State is a nice story,You can read?  Oh, you probably have mommy tuck you in with a nice story every night.

and probably a pretty good football teamProbably you never watch any of the games

But Boise State as a national title contender? Come on. You don't really believe it, right?I believe it for any team that just wins.  Whether it be Utah, Boise State, heck, even the Ohio State Buckeyes might actually be able to do it again if they just win.

They won the Rose Bowl in 2002, and were awesome from 2000-2002, then.......what?  Beat Oregon by 3 in the Holiday Bowl.  Clap.  Clap.  ClapThat game was #6 Oregon vs. #21 Oklahoma....what did you want us to do....run it up???

As for the "choklahoma"  label.


2003 - lost by 7 to LSU in louisiana
2004 - got murderes by USC (who pretty much murdered everybody they played that year)  You cant call this a choke....this was more like a whoopin.
2005 - won holiday bowl
2006 - Lost to Boise, but Oklahoma wasnt even good this year.  The only reason we were in the Fiesta Bowl is because Texas choked and lost two easy games in a row doen the stretch.  This wasnt a choke....this was OU being overrated simply because we were big 12 champs.  Remember, this is the year we had a WR playing QB

Boise State is unworthy, and this is why

Let's put Doyel who is a University of Florida Alum against a writer from Harvard, Yale or University of Chicago.    Just because Doyel comes from a school that nobody associates with good writing doesn't mean he can't compete against some of the better writers in the USA and try to be the best.  But that is his contention here, he can't/shouldn't be able to compete.  Now this is funny.  I wouldnt put Doyel against kids from the best kindergarten in the country, let alon the best colleges.

Boise is just in a real tough spot.  I dont accept that "nobody will play them" because they are a good mid-major.  Oklahoma played TCU last year and plays BYU this year.  HOwever, nobody is going to give them a home and home.  NOt because they are scared, but because there is no money in it.   Why travel all the way to Boise to play in a stadium that holds 40,000 when they can just as easily stay at home, save the traveling costs, and play in fron tof 90,000.  NOt Boise's fault, just the way it is.

Eventually something will have to give, and smaller schools will get a chance, but I doubt its going to be this year.

I can just see the 'superior' writers thumbing their noses at the poor besotten Doyel and say he's not worthy.  Look at us and all the fancy schmancy words we use he can't possibly be as good a writer as we are.  Our grammar is so much more flowery and elegant.... he'll besmirch every page he writes by fat fingering it in his head.  Let's keep him out of our exclusive writing club because he just writes fluff.

I think Doyel would be a little annoyed by that and take their feathered quills and shove them where the sun doesn't shine... and then write about it.

Boise State is unworthy, and this is why

If Boise played the top 4 teams in the nation and then won the WAC, I would be blown away if they had a shot at the national title.  The BCS program will never give a non-bcs team a shot at the title and the SEC ACC and so on will not leave their turf to play Boise.  What is Boise to do about that problem.  Well they can play regional teams like Oregon and Oregon State.  Both of those teams have been willing to play home and home with Boise recently and over many years with Utah.  Congratulations to the Oregon teams for their class.

Now, between this year and 2011 Bosie will not have a great out of conference schedule, but they have tried and will be adding games at Oregon and Utah with home game with BYU.  That is their attempt to improve the perception that the BCS world has of Boise.  But, I can hear it now, the BCS big shots will be saying what, Oregon State, Utah and BYU.  Those teams could not carry water in the big time SEC and ACC etc schools.  There is no way for non BCS schools to perform at a level that will justify the demands of the so called big time schools and media types that suck up to the BCS program.

And if by chance Boise, Utah, BYU or TCU happens to beat one of the BCS big shots, just stand back and wait for all of the world's best excuse artist.  The BCS boys can always excuse their lack of performance when they get beat by a non BCS school.  Lastly, the Big East has taken a lot of cheap shots, but I will give them a big thanks for showing some guts with home and home with Utah.  Thanks Louisville and Pittsburgh.

Boise State is unworthy, and this is why

Boise state would be a 500 team in the SEC or Big 12 at best. I know that they upset Oklahoma in the fiesta bowl which was a great game and a great story. But lets be serious, its easy to get geared up for 1 or 2 big games on your scheduel like Boise usually has. But the hardest thing for a college football team to do is go out and win week after week against an opponent who is just as big and just as tough as you are. Thats why and the SEC champion recieves a birth into the national championship game (as of late) year after year because of the competiveness within the conference week in and week out. Which hasnt been a bad thing considering the conference has won the last 3 national championships. Same can be said about the BIG 12. Boise would struggle in that conference as well because they would be playing teams that could run up the score with them every week and win with a little bit more physical defense than what Boise plays against WAC competition. Truth be told, Boise probably wont scheduel a regular season game with an upper tier program in the SEC or Big 12 on the road again after they got blasted by Georgia a few years back. Point is....Boise State is a great story every year as a potential BSC buster...but reality is they will never make the BCS national championship because they play a capcake scheduel.

this is the truth its easy to get hype for 1-2 games a year. Boise needs to go to a better conference, and we saw how dan hawkins did in a real conference when he left boise(13-24 in 3 seasons at cu) Boise is a great story but the truth is they couldnt compete in a big time conference where EVERY GAME COUNTS NOT JUST 2 ON YOUR SCHEDULE.
