Wake up, Bronco Nation: Boise State football links and things, 1-10-12

An unsatisfying end to and unsatisfying season of college football

I think that about sums it up after that dreadful game last night. Stewart Mandel makes some interesting points about how good Alabama is, but about how it just doesn't feel right. It feels like there should be another step, another test for an elite defense that was never truly tested by an elite offense. It seems like last night left us with more questions than answers and that probably sums up the whole season. It's just sad that Kellen Moore's final season had to coincide with 2011.

Matt Miller named to the FWAA Freshman All-American Team

The teams is consisted of true freshmen and red shirt freshman and is chosen by 11 members. Miller joins USC's Marquise Lee and Clemson's Sammy Watkins. Good to see Miller get some recognition for his outstanding play in his rookie year. It already feels like his career is going to flash before my eyes.

Shea McClellin receives an invite to play in the Senior Bowl

McClellin joins Kellen Moore, Doug Martin, Billy Winn and George Iloka to make 5 Broncos playing in the game this year. That doubles the amount all time of Boise State players that have ever played in the game.

Governor Butch Otter took his staff met with Coach Pete last summer

It was part of a retreat and was dubbed "Coach Pete Motivational Speech". It was focused on excelling with limited resources and I would love to hear what Coach Pete had to say. Does anyone have a webcast of the speech or a recording they'd love to share? I could use some motivation this morning as this is the first day of a long college football off season.
