    Matt Blair, 70, six time NFL Pro Bowl player.  Born Matthew Albert Blair.  He spent his entire 12 year NFL career playing for the Minnesota Vikings.  He started 130 of the 160 games he played in for the Vikings.   He also played in Super Bowl IX (9) and Super Bowl XI (11).   Cause of death believed to be complications from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), the neurodegenerative disease linked to football and considered to be the signature menace in the NFL’s concussion claims in recent years.

    Didnt this guy cut wrestling then get baseball cut too.  What a clown.  

    Baseball was cut at Boise State solely because of the Wuhan Chinese virus over-reaction - like numerous other schools who have cut sports.  Wrestling was cut at Boise State - by KUSTRA - solely so he could add a baseball team.  A baseball team that ended up costing Boise State at least TWICE what the wrestling team cost & which also ended up playing a grand total of about 20 games.

  3. I will remember Apsey as the jack-hole who came to tell the Boise State wrestling team members (and coaches) that Boise State was cutting the wrestling program just DAYS after their last season at Boise State had concluded - AND while Boise State was hosting about a half dozen wrestling recruits.  Recruits who had been offered partial scholarships at Boise State.  

    Of course Apsey wasn't the one who actually made that decision.  That was the liar that is/was Bob Kustra.  The man who had said on several occasions that they had no plans to eliminate the wrestling program at Boise State.   Apsey was just Kustra's messenger.

    As far as a replacement for Apsey - I'd suggest Chris Petersen.

    Yes. Still have the 14 day quarantine for anyone coming into the state. Governor has tighten gatherings from 10, down to 5. Anyone outside must wear a mask, and fines are being imposed on individuals and establishments that do not enforce face coverings. Covid numbers have been spiking here. The more the governor puts restrictions on people here, the harder they want to fight back against her.

    How the hell this is a blue state is beyond me. So many anti government people here, it's really an oddity. Remember, this is a state where the head of the Sheriffs Union/Coalition, said that the only good democrat, is a dead democrat. NM is f**ked right now for football and basketball.

    I was about to ask what political party your Governor belongs to when I saw the previous post here which read as follows:  "Our Governor is a dictator. 14 day quarantine. It's like we're a foreign country (most people think that anyway)."  And I knew immediately that the answer to my question was DEMOCRAT.

  5. Surprises to me on this are the following:

    1. Donte Harrington listed as # 2 Center when I thought he'd start at one of the two OG spots

    2. Demitri Washington starting at DE rather than STUD

    3. Sam Whitney being the starter at STUD

    4.  True Freshman Rodney Robinson as the # 2 Nickel Back

    5. No mention of RS Freshman Gavin Wale at Punter or Placekicker

    6. Someone named Jonah Dalmas (a true FR) being listed first as the Placekicker.  VERY surprising considering he isn't listed on the Boise State roster at all.

  9. One month ago, in this article, Kyler Hack was being suggested as one of the five starters for Utah State (at RT) this season on their offensive line:

    https://www.mwcconnection.com/2020/10/12/21510731/utah-state-position-preview-wide-receiver-and-offensive-line

    Yet now he is no longer even listed on the Utah State roster

    https://utahstateaggies.com/sports/football/roster

    and this recent (4 days ago) projection of what the Utah State offensive line will look like this year makes no mention of him.  What's up with that?
