Knee-Jerk Reactions to Boise State vs. Hawaii

Here are some of my thoughts after the shutout Saturday night:

Yay for shutouts!
Yay for shutouts!
Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

  • I looked at my cousin on our second possession and said, Rypien opens it up and throws a long TD, first play. He must have heard me.
  • Chaz Anderson was always our deep threat WR. I guess all he needed was an accurate QB with a strong arm!
  • Second touchdown is a 2:00 drive. I like the pace.
  • Hawaii is finding out what a #1-rated run defense looks like. The superimposed black line might as well be an invisible force field.
  • Where's the sacks? We need more sacks!
  • I guess our defense is not on the field long enough to warm up (good problem to have).
  • ...Except for Darian Thompson, who apparently has a genetic connection with the ball and must reunite with it at every chance.
  • Miles sure is filling in well for DSG, Gosh bless him!
  • Hawaii's receivers aren't doing them any favors with dropped passes. Are they eating buttered scones on the sidelines?
  • Holy cow. That trick play on 4th-and-1! I thought it was a fumble and so did the entire Hawaii defense, apparently. First time I've ever seen that!
  • Harsin is a genius! Guaranteed we see another team steal that play next year!
  • I bet Rypien wishes he had that interception back.
  • Hey, his wish came true!
  • I keep watching the score run up before the half, and wonder why #1 Ohio State and (then) #21 Wisconsin couldn't play this well against Hawaii. Over-rated! *Clap, clap, clapclapclap
  • The UCLA/Arizona State highlights at halftime had me L'ing Oh Ell! The snap over the punters head where he just casually watches it sail 10 feet over his head and out of the back of the end zone, and then the backward-running mob touchdown.
  • Why in the Samuel Hillman don't the ESPN commentators talk about the Boise State game currently playing during halftime? A little analysis might be nice. Maybe even tell the viewers what game is currently on? I dunno.
  • And what's the deal with giving out helmet stickers and game balls before we're finished playing? We'll never earn a game ball with our time slots, apparently. Past the advertisers bed times?
  • I love seeing Rypien with a big, goofy smile on the sidelines. Reminds me of someone...
  • True freshman with a 190 rating for the season. Me likey!
  • Rypien sure is filling in well for Finley, Gosh bless him!
  • I love seeing our backups get playing time!
  • When do we get to see Ogle sling it?
  • Darren Lee is showing up to play!
  • ...500, apparently.
  • Near the end, I was torn between watching the Rainbow Warriors get shut out, or getting at least a field goal for pride reasons.
  • That, and my score prediction was 62-3.
  • Come on, Wolpin!!! One more TD... dang.
  • Colorado was hanging with (and at one point beating) Oregon. The same Colorado that Hawaii beat. So it's almost like we played Oregon. Almost.
  • I'm just waiting for Ohio State to crash and burn in a glorious fashion. They're a dumpster fire, waiting to be peed out by a transient.
  • I really, really, really wish we could play in the Playoffs with this team! We at least need to play a P5 team in a bowl, preferably an SUC team.
  • I don't care what the records of the other G5 NY6 contenders are, they're not this good.
  • I want every other MWC game to be this lopsided, just to prove the aforementioned point.
  • I wish the Warriors a safe and relaxing flight home.
  • Go Broncos!
