I was extremely conflicted during this game - my team of choice hosting my favorite bcs buster. Oh well.
Don't think so. The BSU secondary was too strong.
Give credit to the Boise coaching staff. They took a team with 7 returning starters and were in the whole game despite being dominated by both Michigan State lines, having no run game nor run stopping ability. Southwick will improve - the recievers are too good, know the short possession game (but we lack a true downfield threat.) Harper is a good back. The lines will be our weak point this year.
I was encouraged enough by the D to think that BSU will do pretty well in conference. Regarding BYU on 9/20 its on the Blue and we shall see if the lads can pull it together. The coaching is too good to have a total crap season but............no bracket busing for us this year.
Coulda, shoulda, woodha.......if we had only scored a TD. 3 trips in the 5 and 2 field goals. At least Kellen Moore made the Lions roster.
