Coach Pete never ceases to amaze me. If I had a son - and he played D1 football - there would be only one place I'd encourage him to go: Boise State. Not because they are located in one of the friendliest small cities in America, and not because they are a great team with a winning tradition, but because of the values that Coach Pete instills into his young men. Here is yet another example. Apparently, Coach Pete could not locate Coach Ault on the field after Friday night's game, so he contacted him Saturday morning. Here's what Coach Ault had to say about that conversation.
“He’s the finest young coach in America,” Ault told a booster group in Reno, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal. “He called me Saturday morning, ‘I just wanted to tell you you kicked our butts. Congratulations, you’ve got a great team,’ ” Ault said. “I mean, this guy is class. I’ve said that from the first day he started coaching. He looks you in the eye when he talks to you. He’s not a guy who goes backdoor. I just enjoy coaching against him. He’s as classy a coach as I’ve ever coached against.
“He wanted to make sure he called [me] Coach Ault. And that’s what he calls me. A lot of those other guys call me different things.”

This is the kind of example I would want set for my son, day-in and day-out, for four years.
