Unfortunately, not in the manner we all wanted it to be. Let me say this, I am in no way shape or form ashamed of the Broncos. They played a good game. All be it that they played sloppy, but they did show they could hang with the vaunted Big 10. That one play where they let Bell escape inside the 5 was the killer in my opinion. Now we have to move on BSU fans. Considering how much was lost to the NFL draft and graduation, the Broncos don't look bad at all.
The question is now, where does the team go from here? It's a pretty safe bet that any chance of a BCS game is down the toilet now. BSU will need a lot of help to get there now. Im sure Coach Pete will render the appropriate words to the team and tell them that there's still a whole season of football to play. But now it's just a question of what they're playing for?
I'm like a lot of you in that it pains me to already dread the highly touted Las Vegas Bowl against another bottom feeder from the Pac 12. But it may very well be the best deal we can get? Assuming we win out? Anyway, I'm still with you Broncos! Go BSU!!
