Joe Southwick to keep mustache for bowl game
Apparently all four quarterbacks grew them for the Colorado State game and after Southwick played well, he decided to keep his. This was the news to come out of the Maaco Las Vegas Bowl press conference yesterday! Southwick did roll out the normal platitudes for Washington's defense too. Glad the game is only 11 days away. I can't imagine what Notre Dame and Alabama are going to talk about for the next month.
Big East non football members thinking about breaking away
Those seven schools met with Big East commissioner Mike Aresco yesterday to talk about their concerns for the direction of the conference. They are thinking about trying to dissolve the league and take the brand name and assets with them to then reform a new conference. This would then allow them to retain their NCAA Tournament automatic bid. Apparently until July 1st, these seven schools have the majority of the votes needed for such a move. Needless to say, them doing this would probably not be good for Boise State.
Chris Petersen did not interview for Wisconsin yesterday
Just to clear that up for everyone. He was in Boise at practice. And no, he didn't have a phone interview with Barry Alvarez. Apparently Petersen is required to give a 24 hour notice for any interviews and Mark Coyle said he had heard nothing. However, until Wisconsin hires somebody, expect this rumor to persist.
Athlon Sports releases a way too early top 25 for 2013
They have Boise State at no. 17 and Louisville at no. 15. That's it for Big East teams. They do have Washington in the list of next in line. Hopefully next year Louisville and Boise State can have an undefeated match up on The Blue in October or even November that can be a showcase game.
