And Boise State would play Appalachian State in the Polynesian Pottery Club Bank of Uganda Bowl. . . . Keerect...and it would be on Thursday Evening starting at 9:47 PM on ESPN 37, except in Central where it would not be seen at all. Peter Spraynozzel and Bill Bologna would be the commentators. The...

Re: Week 13 Elucidations

You know they want Ohio State. That is the money game.

Re: Week 13 Elucidations

My observation over the years that building a program starts at the very top. You need an administration that wants a program. If the Administration does not get involved in every aspect, it will never happen. Too many want to hire an AD or Coach and think a program is built on recruiting. Not the c...

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

Donovan, I think that Boise State has what I consider to be an elite program. The last 20 years or so they have replaced several coaches and the program moves forward. They may not have their choice of “5 star” guys, but they recruit good players and they always have a quality team. In some ways, t...

Re: Week 13 Elucidations

I agree with that, but my problem with picking the four best teams is that we don’t know who is the best four, or the best ten for that matter. If any of us did we would make a lot of money betting the lines and the spreads. Neither does the committee, though, I believe they try. We can compare tea...

Week 13 Elucidations

Week 13 Elucidations 1. Boise State v Utah State – Maybe Boise is better than I thought, Utah State is a good team. Rypien is a solid QB and Mattison is a little fireplug. Utah State’s coach Mat Wells has done a good job, I suspect he may be headed to a larger school. 2. Tough season for Florida Sta...

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

Boise State did all they could to let Utah State back. A scrappy game until the end, BSU wins.

My expectations for the Ohio State - Michigan game were so low, I so believed Spence. Michigan was not motivated or something. Ohio State did so very little wrong. Game of the week for dour coaches.

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

I watched this game just as a guy watching a game. Trite as it is to say, Ohio State came to play and Michigan looked bewildered most of the game. Do not understand Michigan's play calling. If you call the same play enough times maybe it will work?

Yippee...In my heart, I knew you could not stay away. You may just be the straw.

I'm not changing my pick.

Re: Oregon State v Oregon

-- I hate Washington State ... Every time I pick against them, they win. I wanted so badly to pick the Huskies to win, but decided the Cougars proved me wrong enough that I would take them ... and they lose. Mike Leach is toying with me, I tell you. Nice win for Washington. They win the Pac-North. ...

Re: West Virginia - Oklahoma

Mountainman. Good news that when the Doctors called everyone on this board we assured him you were bonkers way prior to yesterday's game. What a game. Just think how it would have been if the defense made the bus. So speaking of being out of sorts, the guy was in the asylum scratching himself when t...

Half time....good time to do chores and find reruns of Andy of Mayberry.

Oregon State is hapless and Oregon is only semi hapless.

Re: Holgorsen Mentioned as Possible.....

--- I am all for going back to the old bowl system, and taking the control out of the hands of a committee or computer. Give me tie ins, and toss any team who either has fewer than 7 wins, or is not a conference champ. Let the talking heads pretend their important, by letting them declare their own...

Re: Happy Thanksgiving

It is a Great Day of Thanksgiving. Our life has changed, but so grateful being with Mrs. Donovan. Thankful for my friends on this board. And specifically thankful today for everyone's picks because it is the beginning of the decline for you all. I paused here for a moment of all the things that have...
