Welcome all the to the Mikrino Poll. A three ring circus of events all in one ring! Without elephants, or any other circus type stuff. OKAY, its just a poll.
victim opponent, Tulsa, will soon be the target of various nefarious poll questions that make no
sense, have no bearing on the game, and will force you to admit stupidity if you choose the wrong one, but before then let's find out why Tulsa has a University. And how to keep that from happening again.
Formerly Henry Kendall College, Tulsa played their first game of football in 1895(I know it says kimball, but its Kendall). Idaho became a state in 1890. Advantage Tulsa. Apparently being called the Kendallites took its toll on the players, who voted to change to The Golden Hurricane in 1922 and never looked back. Boise State and Tulsa have squared off four times. Boise State being one the happy end of all four, of course. You may recall the last game in 2004. The Broncos burst out to their customary quick lead only to play catch up most of the second half, eeking out a close win on a last second Tyler Jones field goal. Lesson: Don't sleep on Tulsa.
Tulsa is a rough derivation of the Creek Indian word "Tallasi" meaning "Old Town", which coincidentally, rhymes with "BEAT DOWN". Which is what I think Boise State will bring to Oklahoma on Wednesday night on national TV. I truly think this will be "statement" time for the Broncos, so does Kyle Wilson. Nobody will give Tulsa any credit after a Boise State win, but they're a good team nonetheless. So be prepared.
Regardless, Boise State needs a decisive win against Tulsa to stay where they are in the polls after being jumped by USC for basically being Boise State. The BCS Rankings are going to debut after next weekend's games and a good showing on Wednesday will definitely help the Broncos cause.
The ESPN Message Boards are lively this week. Providing nuggets such as this;
TULSA. Wow another "Pressure Cooker" for BOISE ST. After watching the BAMA game on Saturday I have an announcement. I think LB ROLANDO McCLAIN could stop those SISSY Broncos by HIMSELF!!!
With that declaration of wisdom, onto the poll!
