Wake up, Bronco Nation: Boise State football links and things, 12-12-11

Boise State falls to LSU 64-55 Saturday night

Boise State shot an abysmal 29.8% from the field and 28% from three. Standout freshman Anthony Drmic was held scoreless on 7 attempts on the night even missing 2 free throw attempts. There will be plenty for Leon Rice and the guys to work on this week before they play Denver in Denver on Saturday night.

Fan travel was a concern with Boise State's move to the Big East

This is an understandable point, but Boise State is never going to be in a conference where pretty much any road game would be within a 6 hour drive like the SEC. I know that we get a fair amount of people that are outside the Boise area. Anyone else excited about being able to catch Boise State games within driving distance from their homes now? analyst gives us an overview of Boise State's 2012 recruiting class

He talks about how far Boise State has come to be consistently beating out Pac 12 schools for guys and also gives us a few guys to watch as we get closer to signing day. And don't worry, Nick Patti is still committed to the Broncos and was thrilled to learn about the impending move to the Big East.

Titus Young keeps getting better with 87 yards on 4 catches with a TD yesterday (HT: TDown)

The TD was on a 57 yard pass that you can see here. Great job, Titus. Now wrap up that ball.

Larry Scott wants to play Pac 12 games in China

I'm not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, it's a brilliant business move. On the other hand, how will this affect the athletes? This is different from basketball teams taking a trip over the summer to play some exhibition games. He's talking about playing actual, meaningful (ha!) regular season games over in China. Well, it sure can't help their quality of football.

Utah State head coach Gary Anderson has a new tattoo to commemorate Utah State making a bowl

It's a result of a bet that he made with his team before the season. I like this idea. I say Boise State try this and brand Chris Petersen so he can always look in the mirror when another schools comes calling.

Kevin Sumlin is the new coach at Texas A&M, Houston to return to mediocrity

Don't get me wrong, I don't want Houston to return to mediocrity, but with the departure of Keenum and now Sumlin, it looks very possible that is what could happen. Maybe they have a bright, up and coming assistant who can take the reigns there in Houston and keep the tradition going because Boise State needs Houston to be decent.

Happy Birthday
