Boise State/BYU Thursday on the blue. The BSU line play will determine our season.

Boise State had better beat the damn Y.

Agreed Jurgen, however the team is so untested who knows what will happen. Miami- Ohio wasn't a good indicator and we were pretty shell shocked at Michigan State.

Our kicking game still sucks after 6 years - can't figure that one out with the quality of coaches & recruits we typically can pull in.

Got a little spoiled at 50-3 the last 4 years. Best case will be to run the conference and head to our usual battery/truckstop /potato bowl.

I won't complain at all if BoiseSt forgets to show up next week against UNM. Don't think that will happen, just hope UNM can beat NMSt in front of a crowd of hundreds this weekend. (NM is a real football state )

Oh, and more importantly Go Tulane, beat Ole Miss!!!!!!

and for the regulars here, please consider a donation to help out Devon Walker and his family.

Yeah, but we can't go with the blue on blue home uniforms anymore in league. I think that was an intimidation factor.

Feeling good about this eve however - BSU will either come out strong, roll and be well set for conference or struggle and carry that through the year.

The team has a chip on their shoulder as a lot of locals don't think they can get it done. I'm sure Coach Pete is using it as a little motivation. We shall see.............

Well........

The blue is an aquired taste. Blue on blue is OK in person but on TV it can be a pain in the ass

As my old HS linebackers coach (Joe Grasso RIP) used to say, "defense wins ball games".

I liked our secondary and the D line play - especially the undersized ends was encouraging.

However:

1. We can't kick. Kick offs and FG's sucked and punting was marginal.
2. QB Southwick aint getting it done. Matt Miller was a freshman All American and he can barely get him the ball. He can't hit anyone else.
3. Need the O-Line to step up. We've had some good ones in the past with a nasty streak.
4. Harpers a good back. Met him briefly while rehabbing my quad tendon tear (Husky wreck - long story). He was in therapy for his first knee and is a good guy. Quiet & a hard worker.
5. Coach Pete still has got faith. Couple of the play calls - faked punt & end zone shot vs first down were ballsy.

Mrs. Snow thinks it will be a long year. I concur. Heartburn here in Potatoland.

how would you know? you guys went for it on every 4th down I saw. must have pissed away at least 6 pts that would've been easy field goals. Is there really no confidence there?

ps - sucks for BYU to lose on a poor decision to go for 2... what prompted that risk?

Apparently some Michigan students pulled a pretty nice prank this week on Notre Dame.

Turns out he's just an Ole Miss fan overreacting to Goodwin celebrating. Now how does he get his hat to do that...great stuff.
