NCAA Football: Poinsettia Bowl- Boise State vs Northern Illinois Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Why can't you have a 12-inch nose?

Because it would be a foot.

Shane Williams-Rhodes headed to Toronto

And that is great news. There are many Boise State guys that have had pretty solid careers up in the great white north. So to see SWR continue the tradition is going to be a good thing.

Congratulations Mr. Williams-Rhodes!

ESPN's take on Boise State to the Big 12

Ok. Sure. Whatever. My favorite line? "Boise State adds little." So that's a glowing endorsement.

Rees Odhiambo had to juggle footballs for Tom Cable

I'll just leave that there and let you click on it.

Kellen Moore will be Tony Romo's backup next year (h/t: SJSJFan)

I mean. Could be the best we get for a while. So, until Mr. Moore is a starter somewhere else:

Kellen Moore is still the best though.

Idaho released their consultant report on football FBS or FCS

That link is their FAQs, etc., and you can actually download the report on that page. If you want to get more of a Cliff's Notes version, and not read the whole 82-page report, you can visit our friends at Underdog Dynasty who wrote up an article with some highlights regarding the study.

My favorite part of the study? (This quote appears in the Underdog Dynasty article.)

Mountain West Conference

Collegiate Consulting had multiple conversations with MWC stakeholders, who insisted on anonymity, and everyone stated "there is not currently a scenario in which Idaho would be invited to join the MWC." The idea was floated, "what if Idaho, were willing to pay a premium with regard to initiation fee", and individuals contacted said this would not make a difference based on the goals of the MWC. The Mountain West appears happy with its current membership, and unless someone would bring strong credentials to the table in terms of possible, and significant, revenue increases, it is doubtful the league would support expansion.

James Webb III going to be signing autographs

If you are able, you should go get an autograph. I won't be able to, but you should and post the autograph in the comments.

Future Boise State walk-on has his head on right!

Benton Wickersham seems to be a kid with a bright future, regardless of what he decides to do. But he wants to be a Bronco despite growing up in Northern Nevada.

Good.

Boise State beach volleyball gets a mention in the New York Times

Yes, the article is more about Georgia State. But it is also relevant to Boise State in that it is a sport that is brought in to help rebalance Title IX equity. I also wrote about the team as well. You know. If you are in to that sort of thing.

(Side note: If/when Boise State gets a baseball team up and going, I think beach volleyball will have had a lot to do with that. Dr. Kustra mentioned that they would be in compliance with the addition of baseball without having to add any others.)

Boise State football camps are going to be everywhere

This pleases me. Though I doubt the coach's families appreciate it too much. Ah well.

Miscellaneous

Interactive Triangulation. Not 100% sure why, but I find it a bit unsettling. Definitely safe for work and you should try it out.
