Wake up, Bronco Nation: Boise State football links and things, 11-25-11

Latest Make-A-Wish kid to serve as coach for a day against Wyoming

The Statesman has a good write-up on Binky, an eight-year-old with lymphoma. He'll be on the sidelines Saturday, hopefully calling multiple fake punts.

Boise State expected to play four cornerbacks on Saturday

The Broncos will rotate among Lee Hightower, Bryan Douglas, Quaylon Ewing-Burton, and Antwon Murray and if that doesn't work then ... open tryouts at halftime. Bring your turf cleats.

One more thing ...

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the blackest of Black Fridays - Boise State's loss to Nevada. I don't know about you, but just thinking about the day after Thanksgiving gives me the shakes now. I am not over that loss, and I don't know that I ever will be. The best I can hope for is that Boise State never loses to Nevada again, Colin Kaepernick flunks the NFL in a fireball of interceptions and bad decisions, and the Broncos make a BCS bowl this season and every season after. Also, I'm kind of glad that Boise State isn't playing football today. Three-hundred-sixty-five days later, it's still too soon.
