Kamalei Correa, Tanner Vallejo, Marcus Henry, and Rees Odhiambo were all named to the Rotary Lombardi Award watch list. This award is given to any player who lines up no deeper than five yards from the line of scrimmage. The trench war-farers, if you will. So we have two unstoppable forces and two immovable objects from our team; neat! I'm just surprised the universe hasn't collapsed under this improbability whenever we have a scrimmage.
I like the headline of this telling of the story.
This writer previews Boise State's team and seems to believe we have the potential to go undefeated, even with the unknowns at quarterback and running back. I like that so many sports writers recognize that Boise State is a brand with built-in success. They recruit people they know will play well with their game-plan and then watch them step up to the bar and win. You know, I believe in us too!
According to ESPN writer Kevin Gemmell, BSU's home opener against Washington beats out Michigan/Utah and Arizona State/Texas A&M. Hey, I don't blame him! This game is rife with storylines, and still contains the David vs. Goliath of the perceived underdog G5 team trying to beat a P5 team. (Are we really the Goliath this time though? Sure hope not.)
Today is Amazon Prime Day, if you haven't heard yet. Supposedly, there are better deals today than on Black Friday, so you can get your Christmas shopping done really early this year.
