Boise State coach Chris Petersen took to the podium yesterday afternoon for his weekly press conference, regaling the media with tales of how the Broncos need to get better, how by weeks are long, and how teachers teach learning. The full audio is above. Highlights are below. Your comments are in the comments.
- Petersen on the Boise State offensive line: "We were not nearly good enough on the O-line. D.J. hardly had a chance."
- Like you and I probably noticed and Petersen confirmed, the Broncos had their opportunities against Michigan State and simply failed to capitalize. Per Pete, in big games like that, the margin for error is slim to none, and Boise State's errors were slightly more than slim.
- Whenever I need a perfect summation of my feelings on Joe Southwick, I turn to Chris Petersen who has this Southwick guy pegged pretty perfectly. I couldn't have said this better myself:
"He’s just got to get better," Petersen said. "There are a handful of plays that if we can make at that position, we’ll win the game. I’ve been around a lot of pretty good players. Some can make them and some can’t. You don’t expect to make them all; guys have to help him out. But it was just one of those games that the margin for error is so slim that you’ve got to make a couple plays."
