Fresno @ Boise

This time of year we all got injuries.

When Pete had things rolling in Boise, you had injuries too, but no one noticed as much because other guys always stepped up.

There was never a season in the Moore years even comparable to the amount of injuries we are dealing with.  Those teams all stayed relatively healthy.

Looks like this will be the least attended home game in Boise this year. 32,299 for Colorado State.  (Max was 36,679 overcapacity SDSU game).

29,000 tickets out with 2 days to go. Usually about 2-3k sold in the final two days before a game.

I'm telling you, we need to extend the BYU series.

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. 

Eh, two straight losses on the blue in 2015.

The sun still rose the next day.

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

Starting DT, NT, DE best LB best Safety, that safetys back up and now maybe the other starting safety.  Petersen never saw anything close to that.  Fresno should commit ritual suicide if they somehow lose.

Boise is more capable of dealing with injuries than most (especially G5s). The fact that they're still 7-2 is a  testament to that, but it does take it's toll.

Almost all the injuries are on the defensive side of the ball, yet it has been the defense who has bailed the offense out every time they go against a stout D on the other side of the line.

The real issue that no one wants to address is that the offense isn't all that good against anyone with a pulse.  I don't see Boise scoring more than 10 points without some turnovers and special teams plays.

Fresno executes really well on screens, if they can get some big plays off of that, then I could see them winning going away.  But I can also see a tight game like last year's championship that boise won.  And boise will make some plays and get some points, especially at home.

I am interested to see how good FSU really is, the schedule had hardly anyone worth anything on it. nOt the Bulldogs fault though sometimes it works that way.I think we can match Boise for injuries we lost the whole backfield starting slot starting guard at one point.Be good if fur teams finish with 10 wins this season. I also don't know about how good USU is either for the same reason.

We've lost key starters too, every team at this time of year is banged up. We've had a different starting RB in every game because of injury. Lost our best OL for the season in week 1, caused a huge shuffle. Lost our starting RT twice. LB are banged up like you wouldn't believe.

Fresno may have the edge in overall injuries, but being a home game for Boise, with the crowd on your side, negates that. Besides, you're a vastly superior team in terms of physicality. Harsin said so.

Not even comparable.  And Jesus, you guys are sensitive about a year-old video.
