One of Los Angeles' top sports show hosts (Petros of the Petros and Money Show - AM 570 - in the nation's 2nd largest media market) is making it his mission to denigrate the Boise State Broncos. For a few weeks, he has gone on about how poor BSU is and how badly they will be beaten by Virginia Tech. As a result of his anti-Boise rhetoric, he was even invited to Hokie Radio this morning, which he bragged about all afternoon on his LA radio show today.
Other quotes from Petros:
- Virginia Tech has better athletes
- Virginia Tech will dominate in all areas: Offense, Defense, Special Teams
- Boise State will not be able to handle the heat and humidity
I could go on, but it's too difficult to type these words.
I'm afraid the disrespect is not just East-Coast based. It's BCS-based. (Petros used to play for the Trojans.)
