VTF: All Hail Boise State...

7

I hope everyone in a non-BCS conference is sending up a prayer for Boise State this year. The BCS stinks and Boise State is the only team in the country that has consistently put themselves in a position to do something about it...on the field. They've arrived at this position not after one great season, or in Utah's case, one great season every 4 years but by a consistent 5 year march from obscurity to playing and winning in front of 84,000 fans at FedEx Field in the premier college football game of opening weekend. While Utah and BYU have sought to find another, shorter route to BCS inclusion, Boise State has simply blossomed where they were planted, in the infertile soil of the Western Athletic Conference. Watching last night's game I realized it doesn't matter to Boise State what conference they are in, they're creating their own destiny, their own image and in some respects they, not BYU, have become the next independent football program in the NCAA....succeeding on their own regardless of their conference affiliation.
