What is it with all the BSU hating this year? Can they get no love at all this year? They continue to win every single game and yet they drop in the polls. Iowa beats Northern Iowa and Arkansas State by a combined 5 points and they shoot up the polls (until this week) and no one says anything. The Broncos beats Tulsa by 7 (at Tulsa while Iowa won both of those games at home) and the media kills them. The Broncos beat Oregon to start the season, but 8 weeks later all of the sudden Oregon had a bad game, their timing was off, they have a new head coach, blah blah blah.
And now to add insult to injury ESPN of all places is jumping on the Bronco hating bandwagon. First they pick up the BSU Idaho game (sounds all well and good) and then put it on ESPNU. Ok, I understand ESPN wanting to broadcast the game and it getting national exposure, but to not allow the only instate rivalry game to not be broadcast in a lot of homes (mine included) just bothers me. And the Vandals actually have a good team this year (either that or they are doing a good job of faking it). And then ESPN Game Day chooses to go to TCU. Why am I not surprised? The Statesman was right (wait they actually made a good point?) today. The WAC practically bends over backwards for ESPN by scheduling games ESPN likes on non Saturdays. And then ESPN goes to the Mountain West for Game Day for the second time this season and ESPN can't even show the game.
I have to say I very much agree with Kevan's post earlier, I am a Boise State fan this year, but very much so not a college football fan
