An agent thanks Boise State

Jack Betcha writes a column for National Football Post and has a nice entry about how Boise State is as a program and what Coach Pete instills in his players.

And he makes a good point, Brees has similar physical traits as Moore while Moore has put up better stats in college in a more NFL ready scheme than Brees had albeit that Brees played in a tougher conference. It will be interesting to see how the opinion on Kellen changes in the coming weeks/months.

Air Force falls to Toledo in Military Bowl after failed 2 point conversion

It was a fun, high scoring game from the MACtion school Toledo and Air Force's run happy option offense.
