Nate Potter makes ESPN's midseason All-American team

The blip attributes Potter as one of the reason's for Kellen Moore's effectiveness which I won't disagree with but I think there is an implicit assumption that Potter is protecting Moore's blind side. Also, this list needs more Kellen.

Boise State and the Big East are unsure of each other

A source tells the AP that the some Big East schools are unsure about adding Boise State presumably because Boise State is not east of much. Boise State is hesitant about joining a conference that probably will be gutted one more time before all is said and done depending on what Missouri (or more likely the SEC) decides to do. 

A Gameday fan headed to Wall Street to create the newest internet meme, Occupy Herbstreit (HT: MikeTheTransplant)

If you didn't see it when it made the rounds yesterday, check it out now because it's pretty amazing. My favorite? "No Jobs + No Showers: Occupy Wall Street or Alabama Tailgate?"

Pat Forde reportedly set to leave ESPN for Yahoo Sports on November 1st (HT: Mikrino)

This is big news for Yahoo and a big hit for ESPN. And it finally looks like the tides are changing at ESPN and the television side is winning out over the editorial side. In 5 years, ESPN will be controlling all sports with Joe Schad as their talking head/parrot mimicking all the other news that sites like Yahoo will be breaking. Yes, Joe, glad you confirmed something that everyone else broke 2 hours ago. No need to cite your sources, Joe. I'm sure you heard it firsthand. 

Colorado State looking to follow Boise State's steps to greatness

It's a noble goal, but sometimes I wonder if Boise State just caught lightning in a bottle. It's not that Boise State necessarily got "lucky". It' more that they seized the opportunity when it presented itself and not just on big stages but with decisions to play on ESPN any night of the week. As much as I don't like tuning in for a Tuesday night game, the fact is that people watched and took notice and became aware of Boise State. And yes, The Blue helped too.
