Do I really need to say anything this week? Of course I do. I haven't said much about last year's debacle in Reno. Let me some it up this way; IT PISSES ME OFF. The way Broncos played the second half. The way they came back. The way Brotzman blew a couple of chip shot kicks. They way their fans chose to celebrate a fluke OT win. All of it, pisses me off. And so this Saturday I can only hope and pray that Pete decides to let these kids right the wrong from a year ago, and they go off and score a bazillion points in the process completely demoralizing the Wolf Pack and their fans. For this reason; they aren't sportsmanlike, they are douchebags. They handled themselves in Reno the way high school kids would act. And I hope we do nothing but obliterate them for the next half century. No fan assaults after games. No taunting of their players when they could obviously crush your head like a grape. No proud gushing like you just won the Super Bowl. Just go out and completely annihilate them on the field and walk off silently.
There should be no let up in this game, Coach Pete. No starters should be pulled. Every player, whether they were here last year or not should watch and rewatch that second half and ingrain it in their minds as something they vow to never let happen again. Nevada is really our only true rival at this point. And I think they deserve the ass-handing of all time after last year. I watched Fresno State beat the Broncos in Fresno, 27-7 in 2005. They didn't gloat. They weren't brash. They walked off with a win. Paul Pinegar got a draft pick out of it, but so what, he was classy. I watched Hawaii and Colt Brennan out do the Broncos in 2007. Were they happy? Sure they were. Did their fans throw trash on the field? Just like every game. But no assaults. No flipping of birds in the general direction of Billy Winn. Nevada, Reno in general, is a dirty, classless place. I should know, I grew up there. They showed their lack of real sportsmanship after that game. It's no wonder they can only sell 12,000 seats in a metro area of 700,000 plus. They're all busy knocking off liquor stores and smoking crack with hookers. Cheap ones. I hate you all, and I mean that in the most sincere way possible. I almost attended UNR, before finally deciding on Boise State. /wipes brow, I'm glad I made the right decision back then.
As you might have noticed I'm rather reserved this week. No bandying about. No overboard assertions about the upcoming game score or stats. WE need to beat Nevada within an inch of their football lives this week. I don't care if it's 17-0, they need to leave beaten whole-heartedly. It's time to leave a mark as fans and be loud and obnoxious until the clock reads zero, and then leave it at the stadium. It's time for a redress of ultimate proportions from the beginning to the end of this game.
Leave no doubt Broncos. Leave no doubt.
