A game that Boise State won, if you hadn’t heard.

Only one of the first six drives to make it into Bronco territory resulted in points. Passing yards allowed aside, the defense sealed this game for Boise State.
"I thought the defense was awesome tonight...I thought our guys played extremely hard" - Coach Harsin— Will Hall (@WillHallKTVB) September 11, 2016
Harsin: "we did not face adversity in our first game ... we got a chance to do that tonight."— Dave Southorn (@IDS_BroncoBeat) September 11, 2016
...and still won anyway.
Coach Leach with some interesting thoughts postgame
And by ‘interesting’, I mean ‘bitter’ and ‘delusional’
Mike Leach: The toughness level on our team is pathetic right now pic.twitter.com/0GBV4bf70N— Lindsay Joy (@SWXLindsayJoy) September 11, 2016
“We beat Boise State in virtually every category. Every category...except ‘toughness’”
Actually, the Cougars got beat in the only category that actually matters: The score. WSU also got worked over in the ‘Classiness of postgame comments by a head coach’ category.
And of course you lost in toughness, Leach—our second mascot is a sledgehammer! You’re not gonna out-hammmer the Bludgeoning Broncos of the Blue!
Mike Leach on his defense: "I still think they were intimidated by Boise State, which there’s no excuse for that."— Dave Southorn (@IDS_BroncoBeat) September 11, 2016
Yes there is. Again, ‘sledgehammer’.
Seemed appropriate, considering what today is.
