BTN Predictions: Week 8 vs. Cal State – Fresno

Derek

We are half way through the season and we have certainly seen some ups and downs from this team.  It certainly makes it tough for us to predict.  Last time I did not really predict how the game would go – just that emotion alone would win.  I was right. It was a tough game, going back and forth with lots of scoring, but ultimately emotion won out, and you could tell by the post-game celebration.

Emotion will play a part in this weeks match-up against Fresno State as well. I am sure that losing by one point left a bad taste in the mouths of the players, on top of the fact that Fresno seems to think it is a new era in the rivalry.  Unlike last weeks game however, we are at home on the Blue, and do not have to deal with the opposing team’s emotion of protecting their home field.  I also feel like this is the week that the Broncos finally put together a complete game.  Fresno has had an ugly season up to this point. On Friday night, it will get uglier.  Boise State 56 Fresno 12

Boise State appears to be on the verge of their first truly complete game of the season. Like, any minute now. (I’ve been calling for this since UConn, so ¯_(ツ)_/¯.) I think the boys in blue will be sufficiently hyped after last season, and in an emotionally and physically good state coming off a bye. The game is in the friendly confines of Bronco Stadium, and Fresno is not a good football team. The Bulldogs are coming off a rather sad loss to UNLV in OT and I’m guessing the crowd and the lights and Boise State’s level of execution will mess with them. Boise’s stout defense should bother QB Brian Burrell into coughing up some turnovers. They also must contain Fresno’s RB Marteze Waller and dangerous WR Josh Harper, but Fresno isn’t exactly Ole Miss and it’s hard to be really concerned. The Broncos offense has been more consistent in the red zone since Air Force, and shouldn’t have an issue putting points on the board against the Dog’s porous D. Of course, it’s just as possible that Fresno plays outta their mind, but even then I think the crowd will help swing momentum Boise’s way when they really need it. BSU wins by a bunch. Broncos 48 – Fresno 10.

Heath

Being at home gives me all the confidence in the world. There is just something special about Boise State when they play Fresno in Boise. And because of that, I don’t see any scenario where Boise State loses their first time ever to Fresno on “The Blue”. Jay Ajayi is positioned to have another massive game, and the Fresno State offense is going to serve up big chances for our defense to make plays. That being said, I am leaning towards a convincing win in the range of 42-20 Boise State.

Noel

I’m not going to lie, I’ve been horrible at this (in case you haven’t noticed. So, I asked the Mrs. for her opinion this week.  We both agree that the Broncos will win this game. I am worried about WR Josh Harper but that’s really all.  Their run game won’t be able to muster anything.  If the Boise State offense gets going, will the Bulldogs be able to stop it with any regularity? FRES-NOPE.  Grant has a decent game and hits 2 deep balls.  SWR will score once.  And Jay gets at least 2 scores.  I say the final will be 42-24.  In case you’re wondering, Mrs. H said 42-31.

Gage

Fresno, Fresno, Fresno… I love you so. Some of the most prolific — high-scoring — nail-biting — gut-wrenching  games have taken place between these two teams. One being last year. Which unfortunately reminds me Fresno squeaked out a 41-40 victory. I happen to break my phone that night… coincidence….?

This year should be a different story. Derek Carr gone – Fresno’s potency gone with. Their defense is dismal at best … giving up 50+ points in four of their seven games so far. YIKES. Somewhat like the Broncos … Fresno’s offense is struggling to achieve consistency. Already mentioned by everyone above, Fresno has one serious threat — Josh Harper. If Cleshawn Page and the rest of the Broncos secondary are able to contain him, the Milk Can shall belong to the Broncos once again. Boise State 49 Fresno 17

 

 

BTN Predictions – Week 4: Louisiana-Lafayette

Okay, so maybe the BTN staff got a little carried away with our #BEATEMDOWN predictions last week. How were we supposed to know the game would be played on the worst surface Boise State has played on in recent memory? Oh well, on to Week 4. This week Boise State plays host to the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns, owners of one of college football’s coolest names. Boise State opened as a 16-point favorite over the Cajuns, a line that should fluctuate before game time. Last week, we questioned Vegas’ line of -17 Boise State, but the bookies turned out to be psychics when it came to Boise State/UConn (38-21 Broncos). Read below to see if the BTN staff sides with Vegas this time around, or if gambling is bad so we ignore their existence completely. As usual, comment below with your prediction or tweet it to @TheBTN.

Jeremy

UL-Lafayette was a popular pick in the off-season to be a trap game for Boise State. Recent weeks have been rough on the Cajuns, getting whipped at home by former Boise State conference mate Louisiana Tech 48-20, and losing 15-56 to Ole Miss. I watched that game, and Ole Miss frankly could have named the score. All of the Rebels starters were out of the game by midway of the 3rd quarter. I thought ULL did some good things on the ground, and their QB is good at improvising, but their defense gives up a lot of easy completions over the middle. I think Ajayi has a good day, but Hedrick is the player that goes off vs. the Ragin’ Cajun defense. I’ll stick my head out and disagree with Vegas this week. Give me Boise State 49-27 in yet another late game on The Blue™.

Noel

Hmmm….I’m pretty confident that the Broncos will get the “W” this week.  I’m just not sure of the final score.  After some alternating “Meh/That’s a bit better/Oh we won but not so pretty!” weeks, the boys have me teetering on the edge of uncertainty.  I think most everything comes together this week (it has to, right?).  The pass and run defense step up, Jay gets a moderate amount of touches but still shines, Grant throws for 3 TDs and runs for 1, and SWR finally breaks one. The Fighting Hot Peppers will go cold and the final score will be 45-20, the Good Guys!

Tami

The Ragin’ Cajuns just aren’t going to have enough oomph to overpower the Broncos at home. Their defense is Sunbelt Funbelt-tastic, and their offense just won’t be dynamic enough to confuse the Boise defense too much. ULL is ripe for the picking (sacking, whatever) and like Noel, I think it all comes together this week. I think that Boise will have blingy yardage numbers to match the chromey helmets, and the Broncos come away with the win, 32-10. 

Derek

I’m a glass over-flowing type of guy – always positive and always expecting the best. In my past two predictions I have placed my order for blowouts but have been served satisfying but not overly tasty wins of 13 and 17 points.  This week we get the full course meal.  The defensive line will continue their dominance, Grant Hedrick will pick up where he left off last week showing that he can be the leader the Broncos need, the secondary will finally get it together and smother the Cajun’s passing game, and Jay Ajayi will once again run free like a Heisman contending running back.  Time to eat.  Boise 59 Louisiana 10

Gage

After predicting a blow-out and Ryan Finley appearance last week, I had some time to self-reflect and let myself know i need to cool the jets. Therefore, I am not going to predict a blow-out this week. Thus meaning it will happen and the Broncos will run all over Ragin’ Cajuns. That’s how much faith I have in my score prediction skills. I think the Broncos will win by a slim margin and fail to cover the 16+ point spread. So, if you’re reading this, you should understand that means lay down big money on BSU to cover. Broncos 34 Cajuns 20

Can the Broncos Finish Perfect?

Three weeks into the season….

and coming off a win at UConn, I think a Boise State Football rendition of the Presidential State of the Union is somewhat suitable. Now, without mixing politics and football, it’s safe to say there is still uncertainty on how the Broncos will finish this year and many questions remain unanswered … e.g., is a one loss season possible? Can they win the Mountain West? Could they break into the new playoff format? The Broncos are currently 2-1 and a fourth of the way through their regular season (WHAT!? it just startedI KNOW). Following their first game loss to Ole Miss, the Broncos and their faithful shifted focus. Since true perfection is no longer obtainable, Boise State has their eyes set on a Perfect Finish.

Below, I will attempt to decipher what can be drawn from the Broncos first three games; I will provide three reasons why I believe a one-loss-season is possible, and three others as to why I don’t. Disclaimer: I will not touch on the schedule or the qualities of our future opponents. This is because, well, simply put…I don’t watch our upcoming opponents with regularity. Therefore, if I attempted to break-down each team; I would unfortunately sound like an ESPN Analyst trying to cover a team that they’ve only received a sheet of stats to go off of … horrendous. Right, Bronco fans? Instead, I will strictly focus on the strengths and weaknesses of the Broncos at this current state.

First, let’s briefly recap the first three games with a few pictures for summarization:

Ole Miss 35 – Boise State 13

Well…shit…maybe a photo recap isn’t a good idea after all. This picture is depressing.

Redshirt- ‘uhhhh … wtf is going on here …?’

 

Three Reasons a One Loss Season is Possible

 1. Jay Ajayi

The most obvious reason of my 3 …

Jay Ajayi is undoubtedly the best pro-prospect on the Broncos. Although ‘best pro-prospect’ doesn’t always mean the best player on the team or biggest contributor; in this case, he’s all the above. We all know Jay’s story: chose football over fùtbol, nearly got kicked off the Broncos, tore his ACL; then bounced back in stellar fashion and has improved by leaps & bounds each year since. Jay’s most gaudy trait is his ability to maintain balance while dodging defenders and running through others. Anyone who has had the privilege to watch Jay when he is feeling it; will know what I mean when I say … he is special. Jay’s favorite move is his video-game-esq spin-move. He will use it consistently throughout a game to shed off wimpy tacklers as they approach from all angles. Jay has also relied on a special habit of his, and that is to quickly break his runs outside; he is very good at changing directions for his size and has an uncanny ability to turn what would be a short gain into a rather explosive one. Here, he encompasses both of the prior mentioned skills masterfully. To say he is an All-American talent and would be a Heisman candidate if playing for a “Major Conference” school—is an understatement.

The only fear with Jay despite the occasional fumble, is his exceeding workload. In 3 games he has had 71 carries and 18 receptions; very few if any other players in the NCAA have had more total touches. Scary. But for now, we’re all aboard—riding the Jay-train to victory.

2. Front 7

It’s been astonishing how impressive the Broncos front seven has been despite their youth and inexperience. Even further astonishing; it’s not just seven guys. Anyone who has rotated onto the field, seems to have made an impact at some point. Following Demarcus Lawrence’s departure for the draft, I was unsure if anyone could fill the massive void he left in the Bronco’s pass rush. I was somewhat correct in my assumption that not ONE particular guy could fill that void, but now it is more so a collective unit of interchangeable pieces that are all capable. It allows the players to stay fresh and provide a spark once they step back on the field. Highly successful. The Broncos defensive stats reflect that notion: Boise State currently rank 2nd in nation in rushing defense YPG (Yards per Game), 3rd in tackles for a loss, and 7th in sacks. Not bad. And mind you, nearly all the front 7 starters will be back next year (!!!).

Clearly, the Broncos have not only been phenomenal in getting to the quarterback, but, possibly even more stout in stopping the run. What is the direct factor? Getting to the QB/RB early is crucial but, if unable to wrap up; tackle, and finish the play—the pressure is useless. I contribute a lot of the Broncos front seven success to tackling. And I mean a lot. Whether it be new D-line Coach – Steve Caldwell or new Defensive Coordinator – Marcel Yates … the Broncos have shown a noticeable difference in their ability to tackle consistently compared to 2013.

The continued success of the front seven will a play a major role in completing a possible perfect finish. If the Broncos continue to tackle consistently we may be looking at an top-notch defense.

3. The 3 C’s

Complexity – Confusion – Cohesion

An added element to the Broncos this year is actually a staple of the past—complexity. Before Bryan Harsin roamed the sidelines as Boise State Head Coach, he was at one point the offensive mastermind during the Kellen Moore era. He spent 4 years as Boise State’s Offensive Coordinator throwing together wacky formations, unusual pre-snap motions/shifts, and trick-plays. The Broncos and Harsin consistently made an effort to confuse the defense pre-snap and force them to show their hand; therefore, making the ensuing play more successful. During that time, as we all know, BSU put up prolific offensive numbers. Casually ranking in the top-10 or top-5 each year for points per game.

Three games in, the complexity level is not to the extent it used to be, but with that being said; I believe we have only seen a snippet of the playbook and its expected creativity. With time, practice, and game experience … the play calls shall diversify. As the offensive unit gains cohesiveness—trick-plays and player motions will become more and more prevalent. In turn making an already potent offense even more dangerous.

Look out for the 3 C’s.

Three Reasons a One Loss Season is Not Possible

1. Grant Hedrick

Uh oh… he didn’t put Grant Hedrick as the number 1 reason why a one loss is not possible, did he? He did.

Usually I dislike breaking down QB play because as fans, we only give two ratings … HIGH praise or reckless condemnation. The ideas of ‘average’ or ‘mediocre’ are all but forgotten. When was the last time you heard two sports fans bantering back & forth and one say to the other Oh yeah, well, your quarterback… he’s… umm.. AVERAGE! ‘HA! got him’ … never? Me neither. Quarterbacks are the face of every football team, even the bad ones.(Everyone say hello, Tony Romo…. Hello Tony…). They receive the glory win their team wins, but the most resentment when they lose. Why? Because football is a Quarterback driven sport, we love them, we hate them, WE WANT TO BE THEM. Removing team allegiance, if you wouldn’t want to be Tom Brady, you’re lying to yourself.

Grant Hedrick fits the mold for the debate I laid out above. Grant is average … or slightly below. Prior to seasons start, and in the BTN’s QB preview, I mentioned my doubts of #9. Here’s a short synopsis of what I noticed from Grant’s 2013 season: Indecisive and questionable reads, inconsistent accuracy, decent arm, and under use of good mobility. The first two have been very visible through three games—almost glowing. And I will only analyze the first 2; his arm strength is not really something he can change with ease nor is it a major problem, and to be honest I’ve liked the way he’s used his mobility thus far (except for his god awful half-hearted slides. Get down Grant, get down). Nevertheless… in the QB preview, I went as far as to label him a “game-manager”. Knowing what I know now, I take back that statement. That title is given to quarterbacks who won’t necessarily win you a game, but won’t lose you one either. Grant has yet to show me option number one … hold your breath … and a little longer…covers eyes… option # two may have (most likely – probably – yes – yes it did) occurred vs. Ole Miss. Heading into the 4th Quarter of the season opener, Boise State was only down 7-6. Then the flood gates eventually opened, leading to lopsided the final score. The 7-6 score was directly correlated to the Broncos stellar defensive play and how well they performed; before they just ran out of gas. Grant on the other hand threw 4 interceptions from a culmination of inaccurate throws and awful reads. Ole Miss is a very good defense, but if BSU is going to win big games like that, as we are accustomed to—4 picks will never get the job done.

I’ve come to realize analysis failure is common when evaluating College Football QB’s. Let us look at a fake example—QB-A’s stats: Completed 22-30 passes, 2 touchdowns, 1 interception and 275 yards (single game). By all accounts that looks like a decent game; most would assume that QB must be good or at the least, very accurate. Nope. Why? The QB presented in the example happens to be product of a system (Giving a QB spoon-fed reads and throws). The system in place for QB-A was developed for quick underneath throws and short passes. Meaning QB-A had one or two reads, maybe, before throwing a pass and most of which were no longer than 5 to 10 yards. In fact, nearly half of the throws occurred at or behind the line of scrimmage; one touchdown was from a screen play and the other was from a check-down to the running-back. Thus, not requiring much difficulty; accuracy, or play reading ability.

In 5 starts and 13 total appearances in 2013, Grant’s stats were: completed 167-242 passes, 16 touchdowns, 5 interceptions, and 1,825 yards. His 69% percent completion ranked 4th in the Nation— HIGHLY misleading as it was for QB-A in the given example. If you string out QB-A’s stats over 7 to 8 games, and compared them to Grant’s 2013 stats, they would be very similar. An important piece: The play style described for QB-A is nearly identical to what system Grant was operating under last year and somewhat this year.

My point is, yes, Grant’s statistics (77of 106 passes, 72% completion percentage, 5 TD’s, 5 INT’s, and 850 yards) haven’t been poor with the exception of the inflated interception #’s vs.  Ole Miss; however, I would say his plays has. If able to go back and watch any of the three games, you’ll notice Grant has missed a lot of throws and made many reads that force you to cringe. He tries to use his arm strength to fit throws into places with tight-windows and he is for the most part, incapable of doing so. In numerous instances—if Grant set his feet, make a quick decision, and got rid of it earlier; a completion, first down, or big-play might have occurred. These are errors that can be made against the Colorado State’s of D-1 Football, but not against the likes of an Ole Miss defense or a top-caliber team. Interceptions against a great team are a definite NO-CAN-DO. And truth be told, underneath throws and behind the line of scrimmage tosses will not score enough points to win against most, if not all strong defenses. They are too athletic and too physical. Deep shots that are open, but commonly missed—have to be completed, no other way around it. Grant MUST be able to stretch the field and connect on designed deep passes to allow Boise State’s offense to turn the corner to become elite.

The Broncos will go as far as Hedrick takes them.

2. Cornerback Depth

In the first three weeks, Boise State corner-backs have been dropping like flies. It started with the Broncos #1 corner – Cleshawn Page – and has trickled all the way down on the depth-chart to 2nd stringers. The Broncos top 3 cornerbacks: Page, Donte Deayon, and Bryan Douglas; have each, already missed time. The Boise State cornerbacks behind them are few and far between. Mercy Maston who would be the Broncos No. 4 cornerback if the others were healthy; has played and will continue to play significant time while the others try to heal up. Other than Maston, there is not much left. The depth is so bad that Bryan Harsin has mentioned other players from their respective positions stepping in to fill the void for the time being. No bueno.

The silver-lining in this, if any, is that new Defensive Coordinator – Marcel Yates – was previously the Broncos Defensive-Back Coach and is known for being a defensive-back guru. He is the respected creator of the heavily popular Boise State phrase “DBU” constituted due to the plethora of Bronco DB’s who have successfully made it to the NFL (Wilson, Scandrick, Johnson, Iloka, Taylor, etc.)

Yates is already showing his impact, proven by the Broncos 7 interceptions in three games. So whoever is on the field at corner will be learning from a highly touted and successful coach. With that being said, the Broncos would obviously be at their best with their top guys on the field, and will need the defensive dominance that they are capable of when healthy; to finish the year without another loss.

3. Lack of Playmakers

Currently the Broncos rely on 3 players to make the offense go. Jay Ajayi, Matt Miller, and Shane-Williams-Rhodes. That’s it. Those 3 have combined for 61 of the 78 Broncos total receptions, that’s nearly % 80 (!!!).  I knew it was bad, but I didn’t know it was that bad. Hedrick constantly looks for SWR (Shane Williams-Rhodes), Miller, or Ajayi. If they aren’t there—might as well call the play dead.

The emergence of tight-ends have been noticed, but they are still used very seldom in the passing game. Or at least thrown to. Tight-end – Jake Roh- has 8 receptions and is looking like a very athletic with good ball skills, I anticipate him getting a lot of targets during his tenure at BSU. The next highest player in regards of total receptions is Dallas Burroughs (receiver) with 3. Quite bewildering. The rushing attack is even less of a committee. The one man who bears the burden of carrying the load is of course, Jay Ajayi; as mentioned above he has 71 carries in three games. Behind him, running a close second in total carries is Devan Demas with …. 4 (!!!) Holy shit, maybe we’re trying to demolish Jay that way he can’t declare for the draft next year & has to return… GENUIS.

It is clear or it should be, that giving the ball to 3 guys repeatedly is not a recipe for success. I don’t think those astronomical #’s are what is intended, certainly Harsin and Sanford would love to get their best playmakers the ball, but when is too much? And how long before they begin to break-down? Especially Williams-Rhodes—5’6 & 158 lbs. It would be understandable if SWR, Miller, and Ajayi consumed 50-60 % of the passing offense, but not 80 %. Same applies for Ajayi on the ground – 75-80 % of the carries would make sense, but in ballpark of 95 % doesn’t. One could conclude this shows how inferior the Broncos other options are and also confirms the trust that Hedrick has with the 3 main guys.

I fear if the Broncos are not able to find a core group of “other guys” that can contribute offensively; they will become too predictable and easy to prepare for. To be straightforward, if the Broncos have aspirations of a one loss season, other Broncos need to step up AND Grant has to find them.

 

Prediction

It all comes down to Grant. Plain & simple. The two other reasons I listed for why a one loss season is not possible happen to be easily rectifiable and will progress with time. The Broncos defense (if healthy) is skilled enough to compete with any team the Broncos have left to face. Jay is Jay and will do Jay like things for the remainder of the year; that will have us fans ooohing and awwing till it’s all over. I’m positive this team will contend for a Mountain West title, which, is ultimately the goal every year. I’m just not so certain a one-loss season is on the horizon. Baring anything out of the ordinary, I’m going to predict the Broncos finish 9-3 in the regular season and triumphantly revenge a team that beat them earlier in the year by giving them a smack down in that Mountain West Championship Game. The Broncos will be the 2014 Mountain West Champs­.

Mission accomplished—I think?

This Week at the Diggity’s – Week 2 (I “Blue Out” Everything Today)

Good morning everyone. Happy Home Opener, Bronco Nation! Believe me, Mrs. Diggity and I wish we could be at Albertson’s Bronco Stadium but that drive from Oregon is a killer! We’ll be Blue’d Out from here though and be watching. Now why don’t we get this ride started (It was started previous to the Kickoff Game)?

funny gifs

I’m super-excited for this football game. Working on game analysis doesn’t hinder my excitement a bit. Now if I could figure how to put the data together….Are people so dumb that they can’t tell a Buick by the way it looks? How about the emblem that is pretty much famous? No? please don’t buy a car and drive….That was a bit disappointing. I’m proud of the defense, I’m upset with the offensive line, and I’m almost as confused Grant Hedrick looked as to what Grant Hedrick was doing. Time for adjustments. Or is that too simple?….

funny gifs

Mrs. Diggity is now into the final season of True Blood. Yay! And, yes, I watch it along with her because it’s on….The sun came up regardless of what happened in Atlanta. I’m not sure the Broncos will want to see the practice field due to the mistakes they made. At least, they didn’t have as many stupid penalties as Ole Miss had….Carl’s Jr. has bacon ranch fries currently. Lots of bacon on them. Warm ranch isn’t all that great. But, did I mention there was bacon?….I’m disappointed in the pessimism that some of our fan base is showing right now. One game does not a season make. If you expected a National Championship in Coach Harsin’s first season, move to Tuscaloosa….Bronco Legend Kellen Moore will be a Detroit Lion again this year. I doubt he’ll see the field unless something catastrophic happens. It’s likely the Lions decided they needed someone to help Jim Caldwell coach the team….So much college football on this first weekend. I need to set up like, I don’t know, 8 TVs and 2 computers to keep track of it….Can Kid Rock never make an “American Anthem” and then sell it to Chevy ever again, please?….After a touchdown play, I wonder if any players go to the coaches and congratulate them on their fine play calling….Yesterday, I did 14 hours of college football so I’m feeling some definite withdrawals today. Next Sunday, the NFL is back and that should help some….The SEC has front loaded their schedule with schools like Lamar and the Central Mississippi College of Optometry for their 2nd week. Don’t stress over that schedule yet….The Boise Hawks are apparently run by someone who has some leftover need for high school drama. They’ve been a great team over the years.  Don’t alienate the Boise State fan base because you’re frustrated….We watched a show on The Travel Channel about a 168 foot high water slide at a water park. Yeah, not in a million years. I’m not even sure about roller coasters anymore….Twenty-two members of a family brought a 23rd member of their family to Oregon’s opening game this week. They all carried him in around their necks. Little vials of his ashes. It’s an amazing, and kind of creepy, gesture….I was just taking a look back at my predictions from last week.  I was right on a couple of things (defensive back aggressiveness, heavy dose of Jay) and wrong on a few (outcome, SWR breaks a long TD, Miller catches 8 passes).  Hopefully, my predictions improve with the team….Please don’t compare Brad Kaaya & Grant Hedrick right now. I’m of the opinion that Brad would be sitting in Boise. He got some luck being the Hurricanes starter….So now Colorado State is the favorite in the Mountain Division? Good to know a win against a PAC 12 bottom feeder will get you so much respect. When do the Broncos play Wazzu next? (sorry, Jay)…Our apartment backs up to a street so people walk by all of the time. I just heard a whistle so I expected a dog. Nope! It was a woman calling her toddler. Gotta love those parenting skills. I guess I’d be horrible at it because I don’t whistle so well….Unless you have proof that someone is a bad fan, you should never accuse that person of being a bad fan. How do you know that circumstances prevent their fandom from being as awesome as yours?….Hey! One out of every four drivers in Oregon! I know my tail light is out. You’re very kind to let me know but I’ll fix it when I can. You don’t need to freak out like I’m dragging a dog….And speaking of Oregon drivers. If you have an “O” sticker, you must know that your football team runs a hurry-up offense. You shouldn’t be 5-10 miles under the speed limit. There’s no hurry-up in that….I just want to get this out there – if I had the reaction to, let’s say, Scarlett Johannsen, as Mrs. Diggity had to Adam Levine, she would straight flip her lid….The Vandals and Gators declared their lightning-delayed game a “no-contest” (insert your own jokes here).  The University of Idaho still got the $975k payout. Pretty good deal. They’ll play again in 2017. It’s ok for the Vandals to start praying for another non-lethal natural disaster now though….Let’s get the hashtag #HamPlanet trending as soon as possible….I’m glad he’s ok but why in the heck is Bob Knight hitting a cow news at all. What person said “Oh yeah. Run that at the bottom of the screen all night.”?….The Seahawks looked really good against the Packers in the first REAL NFL game of the season. Or were the Packers that bad? Either way, unless you are a Seattle fan, it wasn’t very compelling after halftime….Today will be a Eugene-record 32nd day in the 90s. It’s our first summer here.We bring the heat wherever we go….

I though about what the song of the week should be and I think the first line of this song pretty much sums up what I’ve been saying all week. We haven’t gone anywhere. Enjoy the game, have a great week, and GO BRONCOS!
