While Hightower showed his youth at times during the loss to TCU, he also showed a lot of potential playing cornerback instead of the position he's being groomed to take over, safety. 2 things I didn't realize about Hightower: he chose Boise State over playing and studying in the Ivy League which was his mom's first choice for him and he was a late addition to the recruiting class after recruit Jamie Byrd decommitted to go to TCU.
That's the chant from the student section any time Australians Anthony Drmic and Igor Hadziomerovic scored last night in Boise State's drumming of Utah. Apparently it's a popular cricket chant. I'm a fan.
The list was narrowed to 15 players and will further be narrowed to 5 finalists on November 30.
Yeah, I'm not buying this premise. Yes, TCU executed well but they were hardly flawless. I would chalk it up more to when teams execute well, they play better and have more success. It's kind of a zero sum game in that respect. If one team is executing well, the other team is not. It just so happened that in Boise State's losses recently, the opposing team has made 1 or 2 more plays than Boise State.
Primarily because no one wants to see an LSU/Alabama or LSU/Oregon rematch and Oklahoma sure doesn't deserve a chance at the title game after their loss to Texas Tech. Also, the SEC sucks this year and it's good to hear someone else say it.
New Mexico was able to land the ex Notre Dame coach and current ESPN commentator as their next coach. I guess that's good for New Mexico to land someone with a little name recognition. Now to see if he can actually coach...
