    Petersen never lost his 2 best DT's, best safety, etc. All when trying to replace LVE.

    You and I know this. The bandwagon isn't so sure.

    Fresno @ Boise

    Pierce was leading tackler when he was lost for the season. Whimpey took over and was top tackler when he went down. Moa was preseason all conference. Lui was #2 behind him. Durrant is gone. It's freaking amazing the Broncos are 7-2. But losing 2 of the next 3 is a real possibility. Likely even. I've never seen this rash of injuries on one side of the ball for the Broncos. And Rypien has re-proven himself to be inconsistent enough to not carry the team in the D's absence. If Avalos can work magic somehow and Rypien doesn't have anymore wtf halves then winning out is possible because the toughest games are in Boise. But you think the wheels have come off the fanbase wagon now, just wait for 3 conference home game losses. Holy shet, it would be biblical.

    No way. Find the right coach, a young recruiting stud who knows how to inspire and you're right back where you were a looooooooong time ago. You've been there which means it's doable again.

    I cannot remember being the dog at home to a conference mate. Good times.

    Fresno @ Boise

    Rypien typically puts no more than 2 turds together in consecutive weeks so he could be good this coming week. But now it looks like about 6-7 guys off the 2 deep on D so it's more about how much Fresno and USU scores on them. And if Hightower's injury is real, there's no WR's to get past the secondary for the long ball and Rypien is severely limited. Just not a good year for Boise. Injuries and Rypien's crazy mistakes are more than enough to derail a season.

    Boise has no good wins this year. Only bad losses and wins that should be expected. Scary thought for me is that Harsin/Rypien hasn't lost 3 games yet so which loss is it coming up? I hope it's an egg to BYU so they can win out.
  10. Pretty sure the Broncos were dogs in all Pac home meetings except maybe Wazzu. Could easily be for USU game this year.

    8:15 to Boise

    Good. Broncos suck in daylight. But hopefully we are a full streaming conference soon. Death to dinosaur technology.

    Well, that was my point. MSU stinks and Boise is overrated, still.

    35?!? Must be riding that Troy wave....huuuuuuuuuuge victory. Then again that poll had Michigan State back in the top 25 before last week's games too...smh

    Colorado State @ Boise State

    Most Rams didn't look they wanted to be there. Bobo was an iffy coach before the illness now I'm not sure the team has his back or not. Good looking recruiting classes since he got there but not a lot to show for it.

    Boise throwing the cash at Bryan Harsin

    Some felt that way because of last year's finish. But every year that Rypien has been the QB the Broncos lose 3 games and the losses are always head scratchers. I think they're potentially better next year when Rypien is gone (if Cord heals up in time or someone else steps into the role at QB). They have no spark on O when they lose and it starts with Rypien IMO.

    Boise throwing the cash at Bryan Harsin

    He's still learning how to be a CEO. Still micromanages too much on O from what I hear and still is hesitant to take blame when the wheels fall off. He'll be a real good head coach someday, he's decent to pretty good now but he needs a powerful OC that tells him to be head coach and stay away from the O. The best HC's are mediocre if they do not have quality coordinators or micromanage the ones they have.
  18. Sure hope Moa and Horton are back soon. Their absence is obvious.

    That hurricane did it. Love those things, they seem protected too. From everyone but KP who not only eats them but uses them for rituals. They're all over Kaua'i too. Hawaii by 17

    Thanks for handing the NY6 spot to the AAC again

    Seriously, the AAC fans remind me of early Boise State bandwagonners. One big win and they expected everyone to bow to them. One good season, after an 0-fer and they're national champs, because. UCF has it rolling. Let's see how it goes next year when that big time QB and others graduate. The new coach is riding the mo and the roster of the previous coach. The rest of the conference has one good season from Houston and not much else. We're G5. It comes down to individual performances for us in football. Conference strength will never out weigh how you do in the OOC against P5's.
  21. The inverse of Boise's OL. Maybe we could the two OL coaches together for some shared teachings...?
  22. Grandma jokes are probably close. Kid probably called him a blind dumbass ref. You know, what their name tag should read. Dude should be evaluated for stability and fired if it comes up negative. And a public apology for the guy supposed to control 'order' of the game. Seems cool to go unhinged anymore. I'm with the crowd that the kid should have nut kicked the jacked up old guy.

    Hard to tell if the Ok State thing was a fluke, like Harsin's teams produce every season (see Virginia, etc) or if it shows a weakness that MWC teams can exploit (crap OL making the offense a throw first offense). I wouldn't put Boise first just yet but Rypien is on fire and other than a mediocre set of LB's, the D is good even without Moa who might return someday...the Broncos do currently have the worst punt team in America so we have that going for us too. Two assistant coaches better be on the Harsin hot seat.

    Love conference clingers. Houston isn't in the discussion and conferences don't win the bid. Good teams in G5 do and UCF is good again this year. Hard to argue against them at this point in the season.

    Why would I wish? I drive through the continental divide as fast as I can to get to Ft Collins....
