Senior nickel Winston Venable confronted the offense early in the second quarter and delivered some heated, pointed, too-colorful-for-print words to his teammates. "I don’t know if motivational is right," Venable said of his rant. "I was actually mad. I felt like they needed a spark or something."

I'll miss Winston Venable. (via the Statesman)

"Pat Hill has a sweet mustache," — Northern Illinois interim coach Tom Matukewicz when he was asked what he knew about Fresno State's football team a month ago. Hill is the Bulldogs' head coach.

Here. You may have already read this, but it's a nice look at an outside view of Boise State's improving facilities.

"We probably broke some rules, and when you break rules and don't conform to etiquette, you're going to get some pushback," said Delany. "But I hope we get the opportunity to experiment, and that people gives us a chance to do it."

Big-10 Commissioner, and staunch BSU detractor, Jim Delany on his conference's new divisional nicknames. Ironically, it would be rather easy to apply this exact quote to the Boise State Broncos team whom Delany has such low regard and utter contempt for.

"This subject was brought up on Idaho SportsTalk yesterday. Will Boise State be ready to play in the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas? In the back of many minds is the 2007 Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, when Boise State elected to pass on the Humanitarian Bowl for a trip to Honolulu. The Broncos had a great time over there—and lost the game to East Carolina, 41-38. Also out there is a perception the Broncos just want to get this season over with. Bowl practices have always been considered a huge advantage for a program’s big picture, kind of "mini-spring football." But the Broncos aren’t getting all of their allotted postseason practices in because of finals this week and the early date of the game. Still hard to fathom this team not having that edge to it for the matchup with Utah".-courtesy of Tom Scott I could not have said this better myself. I've been worried about the same thing. Many fans think we are just going to walk in there and blow Utah out. I dont think we will, in fact we might lose this game. This reeks of the Hawaii Bowl all over again. The vibe I've been getting around Boise and on campus is that no one cares, our season ended with Nevada. The players even elected to go to this bowl just to get it over with. I for one wanted the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl not for the opponent, but for the extra practices it gave the younger players. Repetition is vital for these guys. Just my two cents.

Finally, some truth... K0LLEGE says: November 28, 2010, 6:38 PM ET I'm glad Boise State lost. I was MUCH more scared of playing them than I am of playing Auburn. I feel very confident Oregon will win against Auburn. Yeah, Auburn snuck back into #1 by .002 of a point, but all that matters is the top 2. Oregon will beat any team remaining in the Top 10 (and have already beaten one of them, Stanford). ..

One thing we told our team is it’s never one play. We had plenty of chances for other guys to make plays to end it before that.

Coach Pete with a healthy dose of perspective. He's pretty cool.

Chris Petersen, Boise State. How dominant have the Broncos been? They lead the nation defensively in fewest yards allowed per play at 3.67, and they're second in the nation offensively in most yards gained per play at 7.52. (Only Auburn, at 7.6, averages more.) According to the researchers at ESPN Stats & Information, nobody has done that since 2000. Only two other teams have been close, and you may remember them: The 2000 national champion Florida State team was first nationally in yards per play (7.13) and third in fewest yards allowed per play (3.99), and the 2002 Miami team that lost the title to Ohio State was second offensively (6.83) and third defensively (3.96).

N is for Nanos gigantium humeris insidentes. "standing on the shoulders of giants." in Latin. If Boise slingshots TCU for the third spot in the BCS rankings, and heaven forbid if it makes the title game, it will have done so not just on the merit of this team, but on last year's, and the year's before that, and on the 2007 Fiesta Bowl team who more than any other Boise team to cement the team's reputation in the national eye. Voters effectively elect teams in the BCS system, and all too often they vote based on the team's collective historical stock. So know that if Kellen Moore's cleat trods the field of the BCS Title Game, it does so stepping off the shoulders of Jared Zabransky and Ryan Dinwiddie. (You may not ever think of them as giants, but size really is all about perspective. Their shadows certainly are tall enough in Idaho to qualify.)
