NCAA Football: Troy at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

What is a gorillas favorite fruit?


Boise State / Washington State tilt on ESPN

So this is going to be really easy to watch for those of us in the valley. Reminder that the game is (tentatively) slated to start at 8:30 p.m. MST. There may be a slide to a little later time depending on how long the previous game goes.

Tanner Vallejo makes the Buffalo Bills 53-man roster

Mostly special teams but this is fantastic news for the former Boise State Bronco. These cuts are always brutal so when Broncos can stay on a secured roster spot, it’s a good thing. Congratulations to Vallejo.

Kellen Moore gets cut, but could end up back with Dallas

Quite the oddity in terms of how this could play out. If he makes it then good for him. Keep cashing those checks Chosen One.

We have a winner of the Predict the Score!

Mr. Footballty11, congratulations on getting a close-ish score prediction. I envy your abilities.


In futbol! This was a closely contended match and the Broncos were able to pull the upset. And, apparently, the only win against a Big 12 opponent in their history. So that is significant. Congratulations to the Broncos.

Travis Averill cut from the Falcons

I don’t remember seeing this earlier, so I figured I might as well get it here. Would like to see him land on a team.

The USA Today Misery Index

A solid 14 of Mountain West Conference teams make an appearance: UNLV (LOL if you know why), Wyoming, Utah State, and Colorado State. This past weekend saw only one MWC team beat an FBS opponent: Boise State. Not much outside of that. Not a good look for the conference.

Texas A&M blew a 34-point lead

That is bananas!

I know this is not Boise State related, but I just wanted to mention that because that is just insane. At least we’re not Texas A&M tomorrow, eh?


We all know that Patience is a Virtue. You just get to put it to the test now.
