Annoying Boise State? Yes, please (HT: TooMuchYoung)

Michael Weinreb from Grantland has a nice writeup about how Boise State just won't go away. He also notes that this might be the best Boise State team yet, which didn't seem possible after last year's team. He also has a quote from a Georgia fan about how nice Boise State fans were. 

The Alphabetical is back and chock full of Boise State

And Spencer Hall is scared of how neat Chris Petersen's closets are.

Andrea Adelson details how Boise State's "undersized" defensive line dominated Georgia's, in case anyone forgot.

Ratings for the Boise State vs. Georgia game were released

The game got a 2.3 down from last year's 6.8. Guess that's what you get for going against the LSU/Oregon game.

Something could or couldn't happen today regarding Texas A&M to the SEC
