Pregame notes

HONOLULU — Boise State will play Saturday at Hawaii without suspended safety Lee Hightower and injured nickel Dextrell Simmons.

The Broncos are also without tight end Hayden Plinke and long snapper Chris Roberson, who are serving suspensions.

• Offensive lineman Faraji Wright is wearing No. 97 (instead of his usual No. 75) and has lined up at tight end.

• Defensive lineman Greg Grimes, who was injured for last week's game against San Diego State, is suited up.

• The Broncos brought defensive lineman Robert Ash, tight end Jake Hardee and tight end/fullback Jamal Wilson on the trip.

Is it too much too ask

that the special teams coach teaches something along the lines of 'kickoff return coverage'? Never mind, I obviously answered my own question. Two weeks in a row....Sunny...

I see they are trying

I see they are trying something new; give to D.J. Up the middle. Hey Norm BSU is running it up the middle. Can we try some outside run? Use our speed!

4th Quarter ??????

Headline is a little EARLY....Still 3:00 + min IN the THRID QUARTER. Come ON guys. Wake Prater up and tell him his doesnt get paid today!!!

Sorry for typing fourth quarter in the third quarter ...

... clearly not an intentional mistake.

A Monkey vs PRATER ???

Im thinking a Monkey with a "note" in his mouth can do a better job than "Editor" Prater at this time of the evening.

Let me guess....

Prater fired you in a previous life......

Sorry......Nope

I just get mad a when they can "knit-Pick" at everything and face NO accountability for their own mistakes. Im still a Jennifer Swindell fan. Sorry.

"knit-Pick" what?

The dude is an editor, not the writer. What are you talking about?

Don't make me look it up, I've only heard of 'Brandi'...

Nice to see Drew playing

Nice to see Drew playing again! I like to see the guys who have been in the shadows making plays. We still need a lot of work!!!!

Targeting?

What a terrible call. And how do all the refs and the replay assistant miss the ball clearly hitting the ground? Should have been 15 from the 29 yard line, not a catch and half the distance. That cost BSU a touchdown. One of the refs was waving the catch off.

Plain and Simple...... BAD CALL

That was not even close!!!! There were several calls that way. These officials get paid a lot of money. Yet, nothing is done when they miss a call. Give your check back!!

Ha

That was a sympathy call. Ridiculous. The refs did the same thing last week in the SDSU game.

Could it be?

P-I-Z-Z-A........

Φ How are you going to collect

even if you back into the winner's circle? Dontcha think being in the same hemisphere should be a requirement?

Let's see, you had it 49.5 to 15.5; 34 point margin; 65 total points.

jonandtanyaw had 45-10; 35 point margin; 55 total points.

Final was 49-14; 35 point margin; 63 total points.

You were 3 points off; jonandtanyaw off by 8.

You win. Backflips off the carcass of the IS blogs is in order.

I'm really not paying to bronze your anchovies.

Guess my 49-17

wasn't even in the ball park. Darn, no pizza....Sunny...

Φ Missed your mark.

Final was 49-14; 35 point margin; 63 total points.

You actually would be closer with a 32 point margin; 66 total points; off by just 6.

Maybe tfunk will share. But don't tell your Redhead to count on it.

I wonder if I get to make a wish......

I know, I know.....

Just a quick question

Hey just a real quick question here for the team....

Is there a reason why you couldn't do this LAST WEEK????????!!!!!!!

No kidding

Last week, our team was totally flat.

Of course, the idiotic play calling is still present this week. Prince needs to move on next year.

Wow

I thought Coach Pete was gonna pop a gasket in the third quarter. Clearly NOT happy with the offense. Never seen him get that mad.

I'm almost glad I never got to see that...
