Let the Smack Begin

It's been reported that both the Boise State Broncos and the University of Washington Huskies (a.k.a. the DAWGS) have finally started preparing for their showdown on August 31. There hasn't yet been a lot of smack talk as in years past (Georgia specifically comes to mind), other than a few comments from the DAWGS such as "It's time to put Boise in their place." (Of course, our place has historically been as a perennial Top-20 team--how about you, UW?).

SB Nation's UW DAWG Pound posted a preview of the game. I think you'll be interested in the author's assessment as well as in the comments of his readers.

The writer (probably unintentionally) disses Coach Pete by consistently misspelling his name, but he has these other observations:

Washington's big advantage on August 31st will not be on the field, however, but rather in the stands. . . an electric and raucous environment that most Broncos players have not experienced . . . Husky Stadium will be VERY loud on August 31st. Chris Peterson will no doubt have his team prepared for the noise, but preparation for noise in practice situations is nowhere near the real thing.

As I said in another thread, what's with these BCS fans who think the Broncos are a bunch of yokels who just fell off the potato truck? Season openers in loud, raucous, hostile stadiums are our bread and butter over the last few years. As Olympic Gold-Medalist Kristen Armstrong told the Broncos last week--it's all in how you focus.

And, then, there's this assessment of QB Keith Price:

[Keith Price’s] struggles last year are well-documented. While the Huskies offensive line was one of the worst pass blocking offensive lines in the Pac-12, if not the country last year, Price was not sharp even when he had time, often seeming incapable of hitting open receivers down the field.

Take a look at the blog, and then let's have some fun!
