Is Brian Murphy a worthless meathead? Hit the link and decide for yourself.

Against my better instincts, I read this opinion piece and immediately regretted it. Look, I get that I'M a homer. But at least I come by it honestly as a alumnus for more than three and a half decades. And I get that a "sports columnist" is supposed to remain impartial--you know, the fabled "ink-stained" (pixel-stained?), world weary, wretch with the gimlet eye--but this piece carries the prosaic weigh of navel lint. Boise State "fancies" itself nothing more than what the national media has "fancied" about it for the last ten years or so. BSU fans don't vote in national polls or get on the teevee or radio. Sneering about BSU's ambitions going forward with this new coach reflects not on us but your own bloated estimation of your contribution to the conversation. And here's the answer to your insipid question: Boise IS a special place. Here's the deal, Murph: whatever your sports "journalism" CV might be, you're still an east coast biased hack and whatever the Statesman is paying you is too much. Give me Dustin Lapray instead.
