It seems that no matter who Boise State beats, it's never good enough.
I have defended Boise State to anyone and everyone who says something negative.
I always get crap from anyone who sees my Boise State shirts or bag, or hears me talking about them.
Including on a Facebook group. I'm an Alabama fan first, so that is why I joined. I was having a discussion making legitimate points in an intelligent conversation with someone who was making ignorant points (the truth, not trying to make me look good). I had to go to work, so my conversation ended. But in a period of an hour and a half between when I got to work and I got on Facebook, I was deleted from the group. So now I'm like WTF?
So i've been having a discussion with a friend on Facebook and he says that despite all the wins versus ranked teams in the last 3 years dating back to 2008 (TCU, Oregon, Oregon State, Virginia Tech, and Utah), that the only ones that were slightly impressive were the Oregon wins. He also said that Boise needs to beat a USC (SoCal), Ohio State, LSU, Alabama, or a Nebraska to sway his opinion.
It seems to me that what most "haters" say are:
- "You don't play anyone." -- See above wins against teams that are willing to play us.
- "You can't win if it's not on blue turf." -- Refer to answer 1.
- "You can't beat an SEC team." -- Changed that last night
- "You can't beat a 'good' SEC team." -- Same song, new verse.
It seems that no matter what Boise does on the field, it's never good enough.
