Losses: Michigan St by -4
San Diego By -2
Total points -6
That is only 1 Touchdown or two field goals which amount to, and could of been easily overcome by a couple of plays and a few seconds off the clock contained in a season of 720 minutes or 43,200 seconds of play. Confidence and maturation of the team is worth at least two touchdowns a game, when combining defensive and offensive out-puts.
The defense needed a key couple of tackles during the MSU game and the offense needed to create just one major break for themselves.
The San Diego State games required one more field goal somewhere during the contest. That's it! Should of haunts hind sight and is a good coach for 2013. Coach Petersen will only dwell on how important every action made on the field of play, becomes the total sum of its parts. Player emotion, failed execution, and out thinking the game, rather than trust the training are those 6 points in the season. 2012 is a teaching moment! I am not a coach but played previously at a different level. But I learned at least one thing, to have a coach like Petersen is a gift in a players life.
2013 is the next step in a players growth as a Boise State Team Member. To the fans, its never is what its going to be at the start of the season. That is why I follow sports for the would of. It's a lot like life, unpredictable, unfair at times and unprepared. Coach Pete knows how to prepare, and knows how to adjust during the contest. He leaves the unfairness problem to the BCS and the pundits. The Bowl Games would of becomes glamorous in itself, during Bowl Season.
I am excited for the 2013 season, if I live that long. Boise State Football has heart and has courage to succeed going into next year. As fans we should embrace that persona of Bronco Football. That is what makes the game so fine. The courage and the growth of students (Doug martin); The could, should and would of Bronco football, parallel to its fans .
