12 Reasons the Nevada Game is Good for Boise

 

  1. So Long Bandwagon Fans – A whiff on two easy field goals. No more potential national championship. These are the types of events that thin out the fair-weather fans and strengthen the support of true Bronco Nation fans
  2. Appreciation for Success – Friday’s loss proved just how difficult it is to win a football game. So many things have to go right. And even when they do, it still doesn’t guarantee success. Hopefully Bronco fans will appreciate every win just a little bit more
  3. Higher Stadium Attendance – It’s true that the MWC is not what we’d hoped it would be. But if the Wolf Pack can beat us, maybe the Falcons, Aztecs, Bulldogs, Rainbow Warriors and Rams can too. Hopefully our loss will put the fear of God into our fans and spur them to attend no matter the foe and no matter the weather. At the very least, you better believe all future Nevada games will be sold out
  4. Closer as a Community – Support for Kyle has brought us closer together as a community, proving to ourselves that we love our boys no matter the on-field results. I’ve never been prouder to be a Bronco than I am now.
  5. Genuine Goodbye to our Seniors – There’s no denying that fan support and appreciation on Saturday will be genuine. Our players will know they are appreciated for working hard and doing things the right way
  6. Coach Pete’s Example – Under great adversity, Coach Pete revealed his true character and taught both Bronco Nation and his young men how to handle life’s hardships with class. Congratulating Coach Ault the right way was just one of the ways Coach Pete led by example.
  7. Life Lesson #1:  Dealing with Loss – All kids need to learn how to deal with loss. Coach Pete said his kids will have to learn how to motivate themselves and work hard this week – even when they don’t feel like it. If learning how to pick yourself up and move on isn’t one of life’s most difficult lessons, I don’t know what is.
  8. Life Lesson #2:  Supporting Your Friends – There is no "I" in team. As we all know, Coach Pete said "no single play can lose a game", and Kellen called Kyle "one of the boys". Learning the importance of supporting one’s friends when they are down is much more important than the result of a football game. The way Bronco Nation handled this event has set the bar high for the similar events in the future
  9. Hard(er) Work – With no disrespect intended to this year’s team, winning programs often forget just how difficult it is to win; with this loss, next year’s D-Line might be taking just that many more wind sprints at the end of practice. Actually, our whole team might just do that. Heck, even I might do that!
  10. Better MWC – Nevada now has serious street cred. Having Nevada on our schedule can only boost our future SOS, something that is unfortunately still desperately needed.
  11. Real Rival – Losing Idaho as a rival was not the end of the world after all. Turns out there is another program within a days’ drive that has battled us close, beaten us when it mattered, and has "nasty and inebriated" written all over them (ref pictures of fans giving Billy Winn the bird). I’m going to start counting down the days until we meet them again. If I’m correct, it currently stands at 304.
  12. Motivation – Think our Boys will receive the same amount of national respect next year as they received this year? Bet not. Think our Boys will use that as motivation? Bet so.
