BSU-Oregon tickets still available in season-ticket packages, but individual tickets are gone

By Chadd Cripe

All of the individual-game tickets for the Boise State-Oregon game have been sold, Boise State officials said Tuesday.

However, Boise State has held back some season tickets and those remain on sale. The school is approaching 21,500 season tickets (including the Stueckle Sky Club) — which would be a drop of 4 percent from last year.

Individual-game tickets were made available to season-ticket holders first. The Oregon tickets never made it to the general public — and in fact didn't make it to all groups of season-ticket holders — but seats should be available for the rest of the games.

Individual-game tickets for the rest of the home schedule go on sale Sept. 1.

The game won't be an official sellout until the students pick up their 5,000 tickets next week.

Oregon, by the way, got 1,800 tickets for the game.

Boise State football coach Chris Petersen said Tuesday that the Broncos still have not settled on starters at linebacker and on the offensive line.

“We haven’t decided on starting anybody, anywhere at this point,” he said.

Petersen did say he has seen progress in the offensive line, which closed fall camp with Matt Slater and Michael Ames as the tackles, Will Lawrence and Kevin Sapien as the guards and Thomas Byrd as the center.

“We think we’re probably better there, but we’re not sure how much in terms of separating guys,” Petersen said.

At linebacker, Petersen expects to continue the competition for two starting jobs for a while. Linebackers coach Jeff Choate had wanted to settle it last weekend.

“Sometimes when you establish starters certain guys can lose an edge and settle in,” Petersen said. “I think our linebackers had their best practice they’ve had two days ago because they all know it’s very tight.”

•••

Other notes from Petersen’s press conference:

— The Broncos haven’t changed their approach to sophomore Doug Martin. He likely will play at running back only if D.J. Harper or Jeremy Avery gets hurt or is ineffective. Harper and Avery, who didn’t scrimmage last week, have returned to practice, Petersen said.

— The three walk-ons awarded scholarships leave the Broncos with 85 scholarship players, the maximum. That means if no other players leave the program the Broncos will only have four scholarships to give in 2010. They already have five commitments from recruits.

DANG

there goes my "break out RB quote" oh well at least we know avery and harper are capable backs.

Oh Chris knows

but he's not going to tell anyone in the news who'll leak it to Oregon who'll then study that guys style of play and come up with a offensive plan that will capitalize on their weakness.

Game Plan

Chris Petersen learned everything he knows from Mike Bellotti. This is going to be one helluva game.

What?

Then Mike should have beat his pupil but that didn't happen did it? Love how Oregon fans speculate all the time. Want a fact? BSU beat Oregon last year in Oregon. Chris Petersen was on the same coaching staff as Mike Bellotti. Want speculation? Oregon is going to lose. Well that will be fact in 10 days.

bluephan on red planet

Another well thought out comment from boysee fan. "Well that will be fact in 10 days". That is speculation boysee boy. Would you please quit stumbling all over yourself. It must be quite embarassing.

How old are you?

Fact-by sept fourth BSU will be 2-0 against oregon. As of now it is only speculation. So yes I am spculating that Boise will beat Oregon as of 8 26 2009 but it will be fact come 9 4 2009.

Speculation as in what all

Speculation as in what all you Duck fans are doing? I see... Do as I say not as I do. Kind of like how you all tell Boise State fans to quit living in the past and on past glories, but all you do is refer to O of U victories of the past... Interesting to say the least.... and quite telling....

MAN

i'm sure bored today isn't there anything we haven't covered yet on this game? ? ? ? ? ? ? ahh Hey so which uniforms are the ducks going to wear on the blue? All white would be cool against the all blue. Maybe all yellow... Bduck what you think?

Jersey's

Oregon no longer has yellow pants or yellow helmets, so no all yellow on the blue. I have heard something about Oregon wearing the silver helmet, white & silver top, and silver pants for the BSU game.

BSU will no doubt be blue on blue on blue on the blue.

Only Da Raidaz can be Da Raidaz...

Better be worried...

...about more than uniforms turds.

The full force terror of the triple read spread option is gonna eat you alive. You know by not talking about how we outgained you, out rushed you and almost out threw you (albeit with 3 backups) doesn't make it go away. Winning by 5 after everything that was handed to you and you still almost lose it with the 5th stringer in there...well...that would just flat out scare me.

But I get it. By not talking about it and spewing turds about how you're gonna win again and how BJC belongs in the BCS and speculating about which BCS bowl you are going to play in after you beat Oregon...I get it, however, you need to deal with what is coming your way. A storm of such magnatude, it cannot be measured.

You have no answer except last years outcome and a soph QB?

That's cool. Turds must learn their lesson and a big life lesson is coming your way 9/3. Make reservations for the poinsetta bowl now, wherever it's played. Oh I forgot, BJC has standing reservations there.

War Me and my superior knowledge.
War Ducks cleaning up the pee with donkey
War Me, Oh, I already said that
Rack Me again, Oh yeah and in a tribute to Idaho, "Thanks vine, errr I mean Jim" What a potato tool!!!

OUT BAAAAABBBBBYYYYY!!!!!!!

ID BE WORRIED

if their was actually a storm coming. Tell me how strong are the winds going to be. Most storms hit the swamp in eugene then hit the mountains in between the swamp and boise so we're spared most of the time. Tornados are pretty scary so are Hurricanes. The only thing coming next thursday is some 18 to 20 year fellers that where puke yellow and off white uniforms, oh wait they did get rid of the puke colors thats a good sign of intelligence. Tell me something donald: how do you teach a turd a lesson? nm I don't want to know what you do when your not playing nintendo.
To bad your not coming cause I'd meet up with ya and watch the game.
In the words of mr. Rome. "Don't gloss yourself"

Out.

Hey Goliath...

David called, he wants his rock back...again...

I Need More Info

Four scholarships and five commitments? There are also four or five offers out there, so another commitment, or two, could happen. How does that work? Somebody has to take a greyshirt? I'm just asking, because I don't know.
Also, who is the fifth commitment? There's Crawford, Hedrick, Douglas, and Sosnowski, but who else has committed? Is there truth to the rumor that an Aussie kicker got an offer?
Thanks.

Scholarships/recruits

It would be almost unheard of if every eligible scholarship player returned next season. If they did, then one of the five recruits -- you missed Bryant Thomas, a grayshirt from this year's class -- will have to grayshirt or go elsewhere. I have been told there are five commitments (the four you listed plus Thomas are confirmed). That probably will be it unless an obvious grayshirt candidate becomes available or some scholarship players leave the program.

I See

Thanks for explaining that. It makes sense to even me, now.

September 1st Chad really?

I am sure glad I didn't pay attention to Cripe saying individual tickets go on sale September 1st. I picked up four really sweet tickets today at the campus and they are going fast. Do not wait till the first or you won't have any tickets at least any good ones.

Individual tickets

That's what Boise State says. That's what idahotickets.com says. What did you buy? How did you get them? They have been selling individual-game tickets to season-ticket holders, but they're not supposed to be available to the public yet.

individual ticket sales

I bought 4 individual game tickets at Boise State when i stopped by to purchase some shirts and seen action at the counter. I went in and they said they have been selling for a week. So she is right and you are wrong. But don't bother to tell her or anybody else you're sorry. All you need to do is confirm. Typical statesman ....

Those are STUDENT TICKETS, maybe?

You are JL FABRICATOR...

Later, Gater.

Why don't one of you with half a brain call or go down before it's to late. Albeit, if you all are that retarded well maybe you deserve to not get anything good. Two of my four tickets were on the 50 section 8. I doubt you would be that lucky now. Don't bother to try and prove me wrong Chad Jr it won't work. : )

He's Chadd with two Ds and I can't even afford to go anyway.

That's why they have RADIO and BARS.

Whiny.

Big game

I am a long time Duck fan, over 30 years. I have seen some very tough years in Autzen. These past 8 or nine have been alot more fun.
I pulled up the Idaho Statesman to check out any late news on the game next week. Looking forward to being there. Tickets are hard to come by even for donors. The BSU fans are great supporters and I have alot of friends in Boise area.
I was really embarrassed by some posts by supposed great Oregon fans. I would ask that you not judge all Duck fans by the few examples of the posts. We are like you and love football. Unfortunately a few give us all a bad name. I guess that's the same everywhere.

You won't hear me making excuses for last years game. It was a good game to watch for all fans. Of course we were shocked and disappointed to lose at home. It's not supposed to happen. But congrats to the Broncos for getting it done. Anytime you come into such a great football atmosphere you had better show some respect for the home team.

I hope the game next week is injury free on both sides so we can really see who wants it the most. It is what college football is all about.

I hope I get a chance to meet the real Bronco fans next week in Boise. I would like to shake your hand before and after the game.

trueduckfan

Great post. Thank you for taking the time and please enjoy our city while you are here and the game (regardless of the outcome).

Eight days and counting!

The city of Boise seems so amped up for this game. That's pretty special.

There are Bronco fans, who I believe, think Oregon is going to be intimidated by the atmosphere of Bronco Stadium - blue turf and all - and BSU's home record, and simply roll over.

And there are Oregon fans, who I believe, can't for a moment imagine the Ducks losing this game.

The truth, in all likelihood, likes somewhere in between. I just think this shapes up to be a tremendous game.

I didn't get a ticket for the game, but I'll be in town and watching, surrounded by Boise State fans. I'm thinking this might not be a whole lot of fun, but it's one game, and I'll enjoy watching it even if the outcome doesn't go the way I want it to.

tickets

21000 season tickets sold in a metropolitan area of 600,000? What a joke! I guess not everyone in idaho is in love with the dirtiest team in collegge football.

Still on that size thing, eh?

I'll admit that fulfilling your void of immaturity is beyond a man of any size. However, in physical science terms, your void is a black-hole and soooo ginormous that any object of humongous size could not possibly fill it. So, to bring you up to speed baby, the diameter of your (emotional-intellectual) black-hole grows and sucks in everything to its ultimate destruction. These phenomema are considered undesireable and dangerous to the stability of any system; no balance because of huge unstoppable negative energy. Yet, you will never grasp the awesomeness of something beyond your physical reach...the ephemeral bliss of having already had yOU and still looking forward to it, yet again.

OMG Buffy! Karma really IS one of those things!

Besides, the Mace Queen from MyMace can't get a ticket.

The bourgeois wins again. Without doing anything to get that win.

Bourgeois/BourgoisIE is SINGULAR, hence they WIN again.

I can't wait...

...for next Thursday. Finally, finally all of the talk will be over and after the donkeys are beat into their own pee (the game is being billed as "the beatdown on the pee" by major media), all of this nonsensical talk of wiggitty wac teams crashing the BCS will be over!!

Next Friday BJC can start game planning for the rest of the wiggitty wac conference because once again Mighty Notre Dame will be a top ten team ending all of this wac, mwc, mac nonsense. There will be no room to throw any wiggitty wacs any bones to the BCS anymore.

Hope you all enjoyed your 15 minutes. Have a great 11-1 season after Oregon schools, tools anf TATOOS you.

Rack me, I'm still here, don't you love it!!!!!

Comments

are getting redundant and old. Come on Bduck09 if you want to own this site come up with something else.

Did anyone hear...

Eddie from Boise on the Jim Rome Radio show? What a joke. Here's how he began his call, and I quote; "Hey vine, errrr, hey jim" What a tool. Needless to say Rome ran him off.

Another factoid for all you wiggitty wacs out there. It's over!! Donkeys don't fly, lightning does not strike twice and wiggitty wacs do not take down Pac 10 powerhouses.

Your ranking is so overblown it's laughable. Your conference is a joke. Your stadium is pop warner and that pee turf...well, it smells like pee, nuff said.

Hello poisetta bowl wiggitty wacs!!!

Rack me again, no it will never end.

BDUCK

When did it start? You got high score on duck-hunt yet?

Bduck was too busy trying to figure out how to shoot the DOG.

FLASH of insight

Pay attention, all yall who will attend the game Sept 3rd..."Beat-dOwn On the Blue" (omit small type within quotes) opportuntitties exist for a show of originality at this ESPNd broad(girl?)cast. What? Too much subliminal/pun here? Wait, it'll come to ya.

What a joke...

...you are majorbuttock. Get a life. Hows this for subliminal, Ducks roll in Boise!!!

BJC has no answer for the Mighty Ducks just as you have no answer for me. Typical donkey fan, lots of talk, but once factoids are offered nary is an intelligent word heard.

Livin on 2 wins (Oklahoma in the Fiesta and Oregon last year) will never move you or you silly little team forward.

I think Snoop said it best, "The Ducks are the shiz, in the hiz(house) of the blue wiz(pee)"

Oregon Highlight Wins, since 2000;USC multiple,Wisconsin,Texas,Colorado,UCLA,Miss St,Michigan multiple,Oklahoma,Oklahoma St,PAC 10 teams week in and week out

Boise State Highlight Wins since 2000; Oklahoma on a trick play, Oregon (4 to's 4 missed kicks, 3 backup qbs)

Rack me and my FACTOIDS over and over...you as always have no answer except for the occasional turd babble.

OUT for now!!! BBBBAAAAAABBBBBBYYYYYY!!!!!!

GOES TO SHOW

who the better team was that day. BSU didn't miss any FG opps. and had less turnovers in the "mighty Autzen" keep it in an even keel. You can't argue who BSU has played compared to UO. Your agrument is like saying you win more times at duck hunt than you little brother. My argument is simple your little brother beat you. Should it happen probably not but it did and we'll see next thursday what happens again.

As long as you live off of 2 wins...

...you need to be reminded why you won those games.

It wasn't little bro finally beating big bro, no it was mighty Oklahoma, Oklahoma. They didn't even know who BJC was. They were flat and not prepared because they took you lightly. BJC then wins on a trick play.

Oregon on the other hand knew who BJC was, they were just severely shorthanded. No way BJC wins without everything that went their way. These are not excuses. If only one or even two happen, then we have excuses. Heck we went into the game starting 3rd string qb and missing the top corner in the league.

Add to that 2 more backup qb's, 4 turnovers at home, 4 missed kicks and what you have is everything going your way. All this and the 5th stringer almosts wins it in the end.

The fact that we outgained you and dominated you on the ground backs up the above stated facts, as much as you and all of donkey nation don't want to hear it you needed all of those things to happen just to eek out a 5 point win.

That's funny

the Duck's out gained us and dominated on the ground and still lost.

FIRST OF

all Oklahoma was talking all kinds of noise before and during that game. so whether or not they were ready isn't the issue they issue is they believed much like UO that BSU didn't belong on the field with them. Again I said it before that is a coaching issue. BSU approaches everygame the same way. BSU was dominating Oklahoma in all fasicates of that game running passing turnovers everything, then the punt went off BSU's defender and Oklahoma got a second wind. UO had 4 turnovers BSU had 2 1 of which came at the 50 yardline and BSU was driving again in the 4th quarter. BSU was outgained in games last year on the ground and they led every game late before getting tracked down late. Only TCU was able to overcome them and win. UO, Nevada, and TCU come to mind. The QB issue was a big problem obviously but UO didn't stop the passing game the whole day. This year UO has a few players backa nd several athletes that are young and inexperienced. That will play a factor in this game. Masoli is a threat but I compare him to Kapernick of Nevada big guy fast and has a gun. UO and Nevada had similar pass defenses last year and Nevada played Missouri, and TT. UO better come ready to play becuase I guarantee BSU will be. UO has to find away to stop BSU's passing or they'll pass on them again all day. I'll give Blount his 100 yards, but BSU is going to load the box and make Masoli beat them with his arm, I'm not sure that his stregth.

a life

get it loser. Foreign oregonian and bduck are idiots

The only thing that is going to start...

...is a new home winning streak for the donkeys.

As for me I'm here every day, maybe not commenting, however, I must be monitoring my blog.

Donkeys turds, blue pee, highschool stadium, overinflated home winning streaks...it's all coming to an end.

Hope you enjoyed your 15 minutes, your way to long stay in a little sliver of light in the college football world.

No one cares about donkeys...they pull carts.

I am out, Rack Me Again!!!!!!!!!!!

Qwack me out again!!!!!!

So you're here b/c your own kind trounced you out? Believable, but not desireable. "donkeys...qwack, qwack, qwack..!", "blue-pee QWACK QWACK...", "...turds, qwack, turds qwack...t-qwack, qwack...", "commentinQWACK..g, monitoQWAAACKKINGring, turd qwack, pee, qwack... donkey...QWWWAAACK....qwack...qwack...". Really. wow, school-yard names, wow...show yourself at the game, boy, hold up your placard and say that...MAN-UP qwack-boy, unless that's all you can do on-line...

Can't be at the game, unfortunately...

...but I can smell the turds coming from your mouth.

Guess what donkey's hind quarters, (and you know what that is, just look toward your buttock) this time you don't get;
4 turnovers
4 missed kicks
3rd string qb
4th string qb
5th string qb
2nd string right cb

This time you have to face the full terror of our spread triple read option and you won't keep up. This time when you throw right, Walter Thurmond III will be there to shut it down. This time luck won't smile at you disguised as turnovers and missed kicks.

Keep talkin turd spewer. I can't wait to conversate next Thursday after the game, although I'm sure it'll be one sided as it always is and should be as there is no room for donkey's at the college football inn, only powerhouse BCS schools.

I'm out. Rack me yet again. It's never gonna end much to your chagrin. I'm here all season long baby.

"Rack me yet again..."

You keeeeeeeep sayin you're out, but you aaaaaaalways keep comin back with the qwack smack..."blah blah blah...turnovers, 4th string...kicks, blah bqwack, bdwack smack lack..." Shutting your mouth is one thing, but keeping your digits off the pad is impossible for you, addict-boy, just like any chance of changing the drool rolling off your lip, "...peeeeeee-- peeeeeeee, tuuuuuuuurd..." You can't wait to try and talk victory next FRIDAY (not Thursday, for everyone east of Harney Cty). THE reality is starting to set in, I can tell in your posts now, like everyone else can. Whether you realize it or not, and i doubt you do, your whole purpose being at this blog was to inflate the image of yOUrself beyond proportion, and you have done that exceedingly well, much to the dismay of your fellow ducks and the demise of your claims. Luck had nothing to do with the win last time, and doesn't have anything to do with it this time. Your entire concept is about to be inverted and you know you can't stop it, all you can do is rant and rave about it. There is something much bigger going on at that venue than your little viewpoint. As admirable as your fanatic loyalty is, it is also misplaced, but necessary in announcing the continued deconstruction of self-reinforcing exclusive systems, i.e., the BCS architecture. You are part of that change, just not the part you thought you would be. Qwack-away, boy! C-mon, boy!!! qwack as hard as you can...but your qwack-light is fading; it must hurt to realize that, yet it is inevitable because it has happened to ALL teams, to everyone, throughout time, and it's happenning to yours.

it happened

It also happened to "anywhere, anytime, anyplace" Fresno state, South Florida and Cincinnatti. And it will happen to bs-who too. Starting on 9-3. Neigh, neigh, neigh away horsey boy. Neigh as hard as you can. blah blah neigh neigh. Both of your are idiots! Throw foreignoregonian in that bunch too. Idiots!
