Boise State V Florida State Game Thread

Boise has used their IPF to simulate heat and humidity the last three years. Opposing fans have laughed every year saying, "It's not the same." but all three years Boise has completely dominated the game and won going away against good teams. 

Yeah, clearly it works. I think that's been shown true enough times that it can't be disputed.

He has a point.  You have a really hard time saying "I was wrong" even when presented with direct facts/numbers.  You just disappear instead and refuse to talk about it.

I don't disappear, I am just not on as much and when I am it's a different schedule than most of you.  I don't have a hard time saying I'm wrong, I have a hard time taking someone seriously when I presented several situations over several threads of several different topics with facts/numbers that couldn't be disputed then it is all entirely ignored and one thing of many was focused on.  It doesn't take away from the point I was making at all even if what I said at the time was wrong because there was much more to it than what he's obsessed with.  Moreover it is bigger than that, that guy is wrong nearly daily on here, at least when I check in, but he gives me grief for the one false statement that was construed differently than my intent (though I could have worded it better)? Beyond all that he finds it satisfying to be trolltastic when I'm cheering on the success of these teams in other threads like this one.  When I came here originally I made it clear that I thought a successful MW and its teams were paramount to the success of college fb as a whole and expressed my desire for each teams success.  He is just hypocritical and incendiary, and ultimately unnecessary.  He could start showing equal respect for the AAC teams like I do MW teams and he will still be ignored.

I'd love to see Boise play in Central Florida for many reasons.  This is one of them, I'm tired of teams from out of the area faking cramps left and right to stop drives.  I really hope Stanford doesn't do it in a couple weeks.  I'm afraid they will.  Teams like FSU use their IPF to get away from the heat, which I get in certain circumstances but you have to be able to be ready to play outside in FL.  That's what all those kids did growing up in FL playing fb, there just really isn't any excuse.  FSU is just bad.  They have talented players but they are lacking in everything that makes you a good program right now.

But it pisses me off.... we don't get the heat.... the eff we don't!!!!  We spend most of the summer in the high 90's & 100's (granted this summer wasn't as hot)!!!  We get HOT, it's just a dry heat!  Two years ago, the season opener it was 100+ out, had to have been well over 120 in the stadium and they run out of water at half time.  We are high mountain desert - our summers get HOT!!!!!

Did you watch the game? FSU was the one faking cramps. They were going down left and right. Boise didn't have player cramp up. They haven't the last three years down south. 

With UCF's monstrously God awful run defense and the way Boise absolutely punished FSU on the ground, UCF would only get the ball on kickoffs.

That's exactly what I was saying, at least your first paragraph.  Reading comprehension.  Don't rush to assume everything is criticism just because I don't follow your collective thought most of the time.  

As far as your second paragraph goes, if Boise played AAC offenses each week last season then their defense wouldn't have looked so hot either.  Either way this is a new year and our defense finally isn't all freshmen and sophomores so I expect it will be back to what we've been used to in the past.  Good luck this week against Marshall, should be a competitive win!

Kind of sucks the national narrative seems to be more "FSU sucks, Taggart didn't have them prepared," than "Boise went in and beat their ass on their home turf."

Isn't that how it always goes in these sorts of situations?

Taggart will make the rest of the year...he's got too much of a sky-high buyout. Still, it's funny to see that program completely implode.

While it was a gutsy win, which I find more substantive anyway, it wasn't an ass beating and there were already rumbles that FSU was going to be terrible before the game.  It isn't fair but that's the P5 narrative, it's always from their perspective.

Besides, nationwide, FSU's inexplicable implosion is more news worthy than another victorious Boise State.

It's a lack of defenses that helps the offenses look good. Cincinnati had a great defense playing AAC teams. When UCF played LSU, they only mustered 250 yards. AAC is like the old WAC. Fun, innovative offenses, but no defense.

Just been a real fan for 2-3 years since my grandson enrolled there. It is so much relief and fun to watch the excellence this team puts forth. A real escape from many years as a Ucla fan. Go Broncos.

Lol, you even came back to that thread but refused to acknowledge you were wrong.  You don't bring stats and numbers and when you do, they are incorrect.

Try it with me "I was wrong".  If you want to add more I would go with "I was wrong, Boise has been wildly more consistent since we both moved to D1 in 1997"

You think he stays 4 years?

Maybe. Depends if he wants to stay after he wins the National Title in 2021.

So Willie claims that FSU may have been dehydrated...isn't that on the football staph there?

Yeah, unless he grows two inches.  

a true freshman, 18, COULD grow 2 inches in the next couple of years. He's going to be a good one.

I mentioned before the FSU fans I work with have no confidence in Taggert or Briles....but what they were most pissed about today was the lack of conditioning.  It was unacceptable for Boise to come in to the game better conditioned.  

Taggert will be lucky if he survives the year.  Poor leadership. 

But, they did give Boise major props for the win and thereby pointing out Taggerts flaws as a head coach. 

Two of them said Harsin is a far better coach than Taggert and his multimillion dollar salary. 

I saw this, which is really cool (iterally). Do you guys know anything about this cooling table?
