Some people's expectations are too high, especially if they can look at 52-21 thumping as "lackluster"! What does Boise State have to do in order to get some respect? In the immortal words of JT Ray, "You're BAD WORD if you do; you're BAD WORD if you don't!" Win by 8 points you're called overrated. Win by 31 points, you're lackluster. Unrealistic expectations aside, the Broncos had a pretty impressive victory Friday night. Yes, Utah State was able to score, but, no one ever said they were a bad team. They have played close in each game that they have lost. It took the defense a couple quarters to adjust, but they got the job done. Although the big play monster reared its ugly head in the game, hopefully we won't see him anymore for the rest of the season. Is anyone else happy that this game was played the week before the Nevada game? I, for one, am and I will certainly be happy if we see a similar outcome on Friday!

 

 

                                            

 

How did the rest of the Top 25 Fare?

 

Florida and Alabama both had "lackluster" performances over "quality" opponents. Texas gave Mark Mangino another opportunity to be "nice" to his team. I wonder if that one guy would say TCU's victory was "lackluster"? It was close at the beginning, but what game isn't? Cincinnati took the week off to prepare for Illinois. Someone needs to tell Les Miles that it is ok to use time outs at the end of the game, when your team is trying to score the winning field goal. Oh well, at least we won't have to worry about LSU jumping us anymore... or will we? Ohio State "took care of business", I'm sure Oregon fans are really excited about playing them in the Rose Bowl. Speaking of Oregon, it's a good thing that someone reminded them that if they lose they won't be able to play Ohio State in the Rose Bowl. Dan Hawkins did his best to help the Broncos return to a BCS Bowl... and keep his job, but he fell short. I wonder which result will come to fruition... Both, perhaps? Oh, Iowa, what are we going to do with you? Penn State made a statement, not sure what it was... But hey, they scored a lot of points. Gooo JoePa! So is Toby Gerhart still in the Heisman Race? If Boise State lost, would Kellen Moore still be? Oregon State's victory sets sets up a big game next week in the Civil War with Oregon. Oh and look, Utah and BYU are still ranked, propping up TCU's strength of schedule. Good for them.

 

Meanwhile in the WAC...

 

Fresno State seemed very Fresno-State-esque. I believe that is the very definition of "lackluster"!  They needed a last second field goal to win the game and Kevin Goessling delivered. San Jose State wanted to send departing coach Dick Tomey off in style. Well the defense did anyway, Hawaii needed overtime to win 17-10. What a game from those offensive juggernauts. And they said Boise State's win was lackluster. Nevada punished New Mexico State for beating them at home last year. Racking up 574 rushing yards, but only 96 through the air. Can you say statement game? Next week's game is going to be a good one! I just hope that it is less like 2007 and more like 2006 or 2005!
