Matt Miller is faster this year

That's what everyone is saying. It's not that he was slow before either. He's trying to place an emphasis on becoming more of a deep threat and with his hands and his frame, that is just scary. It's crazy how good he was last year and then to think of his potential.

Dextrell Simmons has "pain" tattooed above his eyebrow

That caught me off guard when reading about him. He's in the process of getting that and some other tattoos removed calling it a mistake to get them. He has certainly been through a lot, but I'm happy that he's getting his chance to start this year. Hopefully he can make the most of it.

Michigan State has trouble defining Boise State's offense

It's interesting to hear the players try to define it. Their defensive coordinator just simply called it "the most complex thing I've ever seen." They admit that they've prepared for Boise State like preparing for a bowl game.

Boise State at Michigan State picked among top 5 games for this week by CFT

The blurb about the game is mostly about Boise State but in the end they pick Michigan State to win 31-20. They also pick Washington State to upset BYU in Mike Leach's debut.

Kellen Moore will be featured as a bobblehead

The others that will be made into bobbleheads will be George Iloka, Tyler Shoemaker, Doug Martin, and Billy Winn. That's quite the lineup if you ask me. They will be sold at Jackson Food Stores. There will only be about 5,000 Kellen ones made so be sure to grab yours quick.
