It's officially official. Chris Petersen will be the new head coach at the University of Washington.

The calm and rational perspective is to note that Petersen was bound to leave eventually and that the University of Washington job was one of few tailor-made for his Northwest affinity and spotlight disdain. It was bound to happen, and it couldn't have happened to a better guy or a less loathsome team/city. However, this remains the calm and rational perspective. Who has time for calm and rational perspectives? Coach Pete is gone! Boise State is rudderless! The state of Idaho has lost its identity! The entire community of Boise is a heartbroken mess of feelings! Here are some of those feelings:
