Wake up, Bronco Nation: Boise State football links and things, 1-3-12

Justin Wilcox leaves Tennessee for Washington

He also took linebackers coach Peter Simon who also is a very good recruiter. Some say this is the nail in the coffin for Derek Dooley, however I highly doubt that Tennessee would fire Dooley and embark on a coaching search this offseason with so few candidates available so he should get one more year to prove something. Can't fault Wilcox for leaving on his own terms and getting back to the Northwest though, especially the way things were going in Knoxville.

Nick Patti is finishing high school to enroll early at Boise State

We've known this for awhile, but Patti will be starting school at Boise State on January 17th and will be ready to start learning the playbook. One thing I didn't realize before was that Rich Rodriguez had been recruiting Patti for Michigan before Rodriguez was fired and even made a late push as new coach of Arizona, but Patti was not swayed. How many days til spring ball?

Boise State basketball drops road game to Fresno State

Boise State had beaten Fresno State in Boise back in December, but fell to the Bulldogs 72-59 last night in the rematch in Fresno. Early turnovers doomed the Broncos who had 12 in the first half. Boise State finishes non conference play with a 10-5 record.

Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff still preparing BCS antitrust lawsuit

And Boise State's BCS snub helps his case. This will be interesting to see if Shurtleff can get his BCS case out the door before the BCS changes to avoid this type of attack.

Penn State to reportedly make another run at Christ Petersen?

If this is true, then this is just getting silly.

Virginia Tech safety Eddie Whitley doesn't know how the BCS works

This was his quote on the controversy of whether Virginia Tech should be in the Sugar Bowl:

"That's the computer's job. They picked us to go there,"

Well that's just not true. Can someone explain to Mr. Whitley how the Sugar Bowl chooses who plays in their game?

Happy Belated Birthday!

Happy birthday to reader 4EverBleedBlue whose birthday was on New Years Day! Hope your friends recovered from New Years Eve to go out with you on Sunday night for your birthday!
