Attack The Opponent – Washington State Cougars

Boise State has never beaten the Washington State Cougars in a football game. Sure, it was back in the dark ages. Hell, Harsin was still a QB for two of those games and was a GA for the next one. The last time, in 2001, was his first season coaching. Hars doesn’t seem like the…

Attack The Opponent: Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns

The Ragin Cajuns (one of the best mascot names in the country!) are coming off a 4-8 season, a quarterback battle, and a five hundred year flood in their city. Not exactly the ingredients for an amazing  performance in their first game. It’s hard to talk trash about these guys – in the wake of…
