Sports Illustrated's annual College Football preview issue hits stands this week
Boise State comes in at #8 in their preseason rankings and Sports Illustrated has a story on the prevalent theme for Boise State this year -- replacing Titus Young and Austin Pettis.
Other features in the issue are conference rankings (where the MWC is somehow ranked 7th behind the Big East), best coaches in college football (where Coach Pete comes in 3rd behind Gary Patterson and Nick Saban) and best game days (where Boise State doesn't make the top 10 /sadface).
Pick up a copy this week to check out all the details.

And a very special Happy Birthday to our own dear Kevan Lee!
For some reason, Kevan forgot to put himself on the OBNUG birthday list but luckily he has a great friend like me to remember for him.
