Boise State gives Coach Pete a bonus, pretends the Nevada game never happened

Boise State announced a bonus and a raise for Coach Pete yesterday to say thank you for a season of unprecedented notoriety. Oh, also to absolve Petersen of any responsibility in the Game Of Which We Do Not Speak.

The ($50,000) bonus would increase Petersen's performance bonus for the 2010 season to $125,000 - the amount he would have received if the Broncos reached a Bowl Championship Series game.

The response in the comments at the Idaho Statesman website was a flame war about academics, which completely misses the point. Boise State basically just admitted that Boise State should have won the Nevada game. Either that or they just paid out the smallest bribe in the history of college football for a coach to say no to Stanford.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
