As I continue my multi-year crusade now against Boise State and their fans desire to get into the BCS, I have two more bits of information to propagate towards the college football conversation.
You see Boise State is approaching their huge, BCS-implication matchup against the Nevada Wolfpack. If you recall, Nevada kept Boise out of the BCS last year when the Boise kicker all of a sudden went nuts and couldn’t make a chip shot. Boise gets their chance at revenge, and if you pay attention, you will hear the fans already laying the ground work for the argument that this game is another reason why Boise should get into the big dance.
There’s just one problem. Boise is a 27.5 point favorite over Nevada.
Is this a joke?
Let’s compare the October schedules of Boise State with a few teams in the SEC:
- Boise State: Nevada, Fresno State, Colorado State, Air Force
- Florida: Alabama, LSU, Auburn, Georgia
- Auburn: South Carolina, Arkansas, Florida, LSU
- Tennessee: Buffalo, Georgia, LSU, Alabama, South Carolina
So there you have it. Several more reasons why Boise State should be doing anything but playing for a national championship come January.
One last thing. Yes, I know Boise beat the crap out of Georgia. I was there. It doesn’t change my opinion on Boise and a shot at a national championship.
