Morning paper: Boise State football links 9/8

Well, Idaho State did not pull the upset that so many of us anticipated, but they still looked good enough to have us believe that the Vandals should be awful for yet another year. It was fun rooting for the Bengals for one week, but we're more than happy to get back to our Broncos and cheer them on as they get ready to host Bowling Green. More on the Falcons and Broncos later today.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in our open comment thread on Saturday. It became our most commented post ever, so congratulations to you and us.
