Wake up, Bronco Nation: Boise State football links and things, 1-4-12

Chris Petersen to receive new contract, $2 million per year (HT: warriorsscore110)

Boise State has requested approval from the state board of education to sign Coach Pete to a new 5 year contract at $2 million per year. It's definitely good to see Boise State being proactive in keeping Coach Pete. One interesting nugget is that Peteresen's pay will come entirely from program revenue. So no tax dollars to be used. This is is good to see the program becoming self sufficient.

Kellen Moore and George Iloka receive invites to the NFL combine

More invites are expected for Boise State players which is good because they obviously forgot about Nate Potter, Doug Martin, Shea McClellin, Billy Winn, Chase Baker, Tyrone Crawford and Kyle Efaw. Just saying.

Nick Patti throws a TD pass in Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl (HT: BSUbluNorange)

The article also mentions his height because writers feel it's necessary to remind the public that he's shorter than average. Patti was one of 4 quarterbacks rotating for his team.

Michigan beat Virginia Tech 23-20 in the Sugar Bowl

I didn't even realize that the game was being played last night until I saw the highlights this morning and I'm glad I missed it. Looked like somewhat of a sloppy game with poor special teams play and bad quarterbacking from Denard Robinson (I would love to see a 3,000 word post from Kevan dissecting Robinson's QB play and comparing it to Colin Kaepernick's. His head might explode). The game came down to a field goal in overtime that may or may not have been a false start. That's what you get, Sugar Bowl officials.
