That got me very giddy when I read that. I can't wait to see the energy that Simmons brings to the field on Friday night. I just hope it's a controlled aggression.
And Boise State makes the list under "Perfect Execution" for the hook and lateral heard round the world. Pat also points out that Boise State's kicker is one of the most worrisome positions in America. Hopefully that is put to rest this week.
I think Matt Hinton makes a good point. Louisville, Utah, TCU and Boise State moving up to power conferences does not mean death for the little guy. Those were and are going to be very significant moves for each program. I guess if you are a fan of rooting for the little guy and had not particular team, then this might be sad for you.
He also has Boise State playing in the MAACO bowl but this year against Stanford. Man, that would have been such a fun game last year...
Here's a good write up on Winn and what has brought him to the Browns. He could even start for them in week 1.
