Thank you Tom Scott


I just about jumped through my computer screen when I read Graham's words. But then Tom Scott came to the proverbial rescue.

From the Scott Slant:

ESPN.com is running a series of "Games To Fear" on the non-conference schedules of prominent FBS teams. Among the non-BCS elite, Graham Watson lists Boise State's game at Tulsa as No. 1. These are points well-taken from Watson: "We all (me included) keep talking that if Boise State gets past Oregon then it has a clear path to an undefeated season. But don't count out the Golden Hurricane here. Sure, Tulsa lost a lot of talent from last year, but it's still a dangerous team capable of putting up big numbers. Boise State has a great passing defense, but the Broncos have allowed a lot of points and yards to spread offenses. The fact that this game is at Tulsa, a place itching for a big win, doesn't help."

Wait a minute, though, when did Boise State allow a lot of yards to spread offenses last year? Oregon only clicked when it went to Darron Thomas and threw like crazy out of desperation. Bowling Green and Southern Miss? Uh, one touchdown apiece. Utah State couldn't muster anything. And 14 of Nevada's 34 points came on interceptions returned for scores. The Broncos were fine against the spread.
