Annoying Boise State? Yes, please (HT: TooMuchYoung)

Michael Weinreb from Grantland has a nice writeup about how Boise State just won't go away. He also notes that this might be the best Boise State team yet, which didn't seem possible after last year's team. He also has a quote from a Georgia fan about how nice Boise State fans were. 

The Alphabetical is back and chock full of Boise State

And Spencer Hall is scared of how neat Chris Petersen's closets are.

Boise State's defensive line stepped up to the challenge

Andrea Adelson details how Boise State's "undersized" defensive line dominated Georgia's, in case anyone forgot.

Ratings for the Boise State vs. Georgia game were released

The game got a 2.3 down from last year's 6.8. Guess that's what you get for going against the LSU/Oregon game.

Matt Hayes from Sporting News is a doubter no more

He is now convinced that Boise State could compete in the SEC. Which this whole argument is kind of stupid. Did anyone really think that Boise State would be winless in the SEC? Or on the flip side go undefeated? Of course they'd compete.

Boise State to net $1.2 million from Chick Fil A game

And that's from a $1.4 million payout. Guess that's what happens when you are allowed to book your own travel and hotels and aren't forced into high priced hotels and minimum stays by bowl games.

Something could or couldn't happen today regarding Texas A&M to the SEC

If you're into that sort of thing then that Story Stream is a good place to check for updates.

Happy Birthday

A special happy birthday to reader forum8usa. Hope all your dreams come true!
