Wake up, Bronco Nation: Boise State football links and things, 11-29-11

Stanaway Player of Week
Stanaway Player of Week

Travis Stanaway named Mountain West Co-defensive Player of the Week

Stanaway played admirably on Saturday replacing Iloka who had moved to corner. The switch worked so well that Iloka is named as the starter at corner against New Mexico too. Now can we get an update on Jamar Taylor?

Four seniors will be held out of senior days expecting to get another year of eligibility

The list includes Jerrell Gavins, Cory Yriarte, Dan Paul and Jeremy Avery DJ Harper. Gavins and Paul were injured this year. Harper missed the majority of last year with a knee injury and Yriarte missed the 2009 year with an injury. 

UCLA will reportedly offer Chris Petersen $3 million a year

AD Dan Guererro is rumored to have Petersen as his top target. This is to be expected. If you are an AD at a top tier program (or think you should be a top tier program), you wouldn't be doing your job if you didn't make Coach Pete say no to you. There will be a lot of stories like this in the coming weeks and if you're a journalist covering these rumors, Dr. Saturday has some advice for you. 

Bill Connelly says that LSU and Alabama must play for the national championship, whether we like it or not

I disagree and instead am of the belief that Oklahoma State has a better resume. Alabama has beat an overrated Arkansas team and an inferior Penn State team. That's it. Their only other claim is that they lost in overtime to LSU? Oklahoma State has beaten more Top 25 teams, Top 50 teams and teams with a winning record. If they can take care of Oklahoma on Saturday, they deserve to go to the national championship game over Alabama. The SEC bias has swung too far the other way. 

Utah State accepts a bid to the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl

They are set to play a MAC team that could either be Ohio or Toledo. Get your tickets now, folks!

Idaho nabs Cour d'Alene QB Chad Chalich

This really begs the question, do they play 8 man football up there?
