Here is the day. Friday. Did you all survive the first week of the Daylight Saving Time?
The levels of donation are pretty cool monumental dates in the history of both Lyle Smith and Boise State. One of the campaigns goals is to get to 100 donations (though I would guess if they exceeded that, it wouldn't hurt their feelings).
I hope you consider donating.
Disappointing for the former first rounder. He'd been hampered by injuries his years with Denver, missing out on both Super Bowls due to injury. The one positive is he has a Super Bowl ring and that is something.
And thus ends the Mountain West Conference's presence in the tournament. The league's best team:
Boise State San Diego State probably should have gotten an invite as well. They could have gotten out of the first round. At least the Bulldogs made the appearance. I suppose.
They both went 1-1 for the first day, so they will be in the consolation brackets. If you are a fan of grapplers, you should tune in to ESPN 3 where they will be broadcasting the matches. (Man, I really am starting to dig ESPN's coverage of the Olympic (read: non-revenue) sports.
The Broncos look to capture back-to-back titles following up a stellar senior night where the squad netted the school's record-high team score. Senior Krystine Jacobsen was nice enough to have a chat with me yesterday so I will be getting something up over the next few days regarding their work to getting this far, and hopes to get into the nationals.
Some tough competition at this level. Boise State got the sixth fastest time in the 200 meter free relay with a time of 1:30.20. Which sounds well and good. But it was only good for 22nd. Yikes! The amount of talent in the pool can be overwhelming. Hopefully the third day will treat the Broncos better.
I SUPER hate the triple option. But check out Bill Connelly's breakdown of the Lobos for the next year. I am waiting with bated breath for Boise State's preview. Should be good.
Blackle. Basically this is Google, just in black. The theory is it helps save energy because LED backlight monitors do not light up the parts that are black. Never know. Could work.
