Over the weekend, BSU lost its second conference game against Utah State, when Marks missed the first of a 1-and-1 and Utah State shot a desperation 3 at the last second. It's really tough to lose in this fashion, but kudos to David Collette for hitting that shot with two defenders in his face. Despite our conference losses, I believe we'll still make it to the big dance in March.
Sperbeck was willing to play any position, despite playing QB in high school and being recruited as a safety. Boy, I'm glad he turned into a wide receiver! This writer also writes about Vallejo's personal motivation; his brother.
Matt Miller is my 6-year old boy's favorite player. Any time he sees #2 on a jersey--no matter the team-- he asks me if that was Matt Miller, and I had to remind him that, sadly, he was injured and couldn't play the rest of the season. Also, how many times do I have to tell him he plays for Boise State? 6-year-olds, amirite?
He talks about his future plans in this Q & A, and the NFL is a goal of his. If that falls through, maybe team roping again, of just raising cows. I know too many ropers missing fingers, so I hope he holds off practicing that until he is safely on the Seahawks roster.
The BCS is no more, and we have a honest-to-goodness playoff happening! Sure, it is only 3 games long, but that bodes well for our future, according to Jon Bois. I have a dilemma here: Oregon or Ohio State?
I take solace in the fact that neither is an SUC team (but whaddabout dat speed?), but I have beef which each team for various reasons. Do I root for the Big Brothers of the Rich, or the Facepunchers? If Oregon was playing Alabama, I'd definitely be rooting for the regional team to leave a Crimson-colored stain on the field, which not even Tide could remove. But they're playing against an institution which has dissed and dismissed us in the past.
I guess the key word is past. Lagarrette Blount no longer
cheap shots plays for the Ducks, and now THEEEE Ohio State is coached by a man whom I respect, due to his coming from the MWC and putting the back-stomp to Pittsburgh in a BCS Bowl, therefore paving the way for future BSU success. So help me out: Who's it Gonna Be?
