I’ve finally stopped drinking for good!
Now I will only drink for evil.
Boise State did not get a Big 12 rose
And I think we all saw this coming if we were honest with ourselves.
Big 12 cuts expansion list to at least 12: AF, BYU, UCF, Cincinnati, CSU, UConn, UH, Rice, USF, SMU, Temple & Tulane sources told @ESPN— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) September 1, 2016
Which is mildly disappointing. You always wanted to think that Boise State had a shot. But them’s the breaks. Ultimately, I am curious if the Big 12 decides against the whole expansion thing and just reworks a deal with ESPN to get more money. Curious where the Big 12 ultimately goes with this whole thing.
Will Boise State confirm this cut sometime today? Probably.

And there it is.
BSU puts out statement. School talked to B12. League has told BSU it didn't make initial cut. "We wish the best to the Big 12"— Mike Prater (@IDS_Prater) September 1, 2016

Here is the full statement from President Bob Kustra.

The home slate is a little... bland. With a visit to Oregon there is not a whole lot of meat on that schedule outside of the tournaments. But the Broncos should give everyone a lot of heart attacks throughout the season. So we have that to look forward.
Broncos have three matches to get on the right side of the win-loss column (currently 1-2). Look out for Sierra Nobley to be awesome and Kaitlyn Oliver to boost her career attack percentage.
They will be facing Oregon and Oregon State in succession. That’s quite the grind for this road trip. Wish them well as they, also, try to regain some footing and some wins.
“Oh this? This is just the time we went into Virginia and knocked off Virginia Tech in one of the awesomest openers ever. You know, the usual. NBD.”
I hope they never take down this Space Jam website.
