Some things we can take away from (Saturday's game) is we were exposed that we can't handle noise (from the fans). I've played up in Boise. I played there when I was at Utah State (in 2006). It's just as, if not more, noisy. That will be an emphasis this week in practice.
Seemingly out of respect as much as anything else, AP voters selected Boise State 24th to start the season. The perennial top-10 team is replacing a nearly unprecedented number of starters, and not a single one of us had a clue what to expect of them heading into the season. In their opening game, at No. 13 Michigan State, they showed potential offensive issues but held steady enough defensively to hold a lead deep into the second half. They eventually fell to the Spartans, 17-13, but if nothing else a four-point road loss to the No. 13 team probably proved that the Broncos were of Top 25 caliber. But they were bumped from the polls because they lost. You almost always drop when you lose, no matter what.
I expect a good game, but Boise is going to win. I know that for a fact. Quote me.
A down year? The last time the Broncos had a "down" year they went 10-3. Ten and FREAKING three! A down year, my rear end. If we are 10-3 after this season I'll be a very happy little man.
Gavins, on the pairing with Taylor: "We plan on being the best, and that’s what we’re going to be — the best in the Mountain West, the best in college football. It is what it is. Anybody got a problem with it, any receiver, just come see us."
