EAST LANSING, MI - AUGUST 31: Bryan Douglas #1 of the Boise State Broncos reacts after causing a third quarter fumble while playing the Michigan State Spartans at Spartan Stadium on August, 2010 in East Lansing, Michigan. Michigan State won the game 17-13. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)
In the off season, Coach Pete challenged Douglas to step up and he has responded in all areas including academics. Now he's joined Kyle Wilson and Titus Young as the next player to wear no. 1. No one wore it last year after Young graduated, but Coach Pete decided to award it to Douglas this year. I love that he is using the no. 1 jersey as a motivational tool.
Overall the defense played pretty well against Michigan State with the exception of missed tackles that allowed the Spartans to convert 10 of 19 third downs. Coach Pete also said that Southwick needs to make better decisions. My guess is that he wasn't aggressive enough and played too conservatively. What do you think?
In case you missed it, Kevan's outside of the box polling strategy for this week used wins against FBS teams plus APR scores. Well that resulted in Ohio State getting a first place vote. That raised some eyebrows across the BlogPollosphere.
With the new bleachers installed in the end zones, capacity has gone up at Bronco Stadium. That means more tickets are available. I'm not sure how many are left exactly, but you can still purchase them online.
