Looks like this could take away from Boise State's edge on the kickoff teams where new players have cut their teeth. However, I'm sure the coaching staff will find a way to make the new rules work in their favor.
This is another story in what I'm guessing to be a long line of stories, like this mailbag question by Bruce Feldman, where everyone realizes that Boise State isn't going away.
See how you're doing. I'm down one Final Four team already but it's at least better than my other bracket where I had Missouri winning it all. Doh.
We have multiple birthdays to catch up on including reader RenameThe's birthday from last Friday that I somehow missed and then reader Rand McNalley and current player Corey Bell shared a birthday yesterday. Congratulations everyone!
