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…

What Can Vegas and Gamblers Tell Us about Boise State’s 2016 Record?

College football is upon us (Praise be!). Camps have opened, players and coaches are giving daily interviews, and sports blogs have begun over analyzing every aspect of their favorite team. Blue Turf Nation has no shortage of talented writers that leave no blue and orange stone un-turned, but to paraphrase Robots visionary innovator Mr. Bigweld,…

Realign This – A Realists View of Big 12 Expansion

It feels like every word that there is to be said about Big 12 realignment already has been said by now. The consensus seems to be that Boise State is yet again going to be left on the outside looking in, languishing in the Mountain West while the likes of BYU and Houston ride their…

Boise State predictions for ’16-17 season

Bronco Fans, I am going to take an in-depth look at Boise State’s offense and give my prediction for how I think they will fair in different categories on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. I will look at things on the offense such as turnovers, passing yards, rushing yards, etc., give you…

Attack The Opponent (Bowl Edition!): Northern Illinois Huskies

The matchup with NIU has been years in the making. They’re another blue collar team from a small city, built on a reputation for giant killing. The Huskies are not “The Next Boise State,” they have forged their own identity. But it’s still the MAC. The Huskies have had the same sort of trajectory over…

Attack The Opponent: Air Force Academy Falcons

The hierarchy of meaningless gods that I think of for things that are matters of chance are not in charge of the big stuff. In fact, in this gospel, they’re just as bewildered as we are about the origin of the universe. There’s no water into wine here. No burning bushes, no talking snakes. If…

Attack The Opponent: University of Nevada Las Vegas Rebels

UNLV is 2-5 under Tony Sanchez, most recently the coach at Bishop Gorman HS in Vegas. (LOOK AT THEIR FACILITIES. This is a high school with stuff that’s better than most of the MWC.) However, this isn’t the regular UNLV 2-5. This team is the current owner of the Fremont Cannon, winning this years Battle…

Bronco Feedbag: Utah State Aggies

It’s a special day, you guys. It’s the day before the Aggies get reminded who their daddy is. In the wild west spirit of northern Utah/southern Idaho, I figured we’d go with some of my favorite “cowboy cooking” type dish – chili. Recipe of the Week: All The Meats Chili Here’s what you’ll need (serves…

Bronco Feedbag: Hawaii (Rainbow) Warriors

Your pig won’t taste as good as this one Aloha!  It is Hawaii game week, and I am excited!  I have been looking forward to tailgating for this game for a long time.  I grew up with a lot of Pacific Islanders – one of my good friend’s jokingly called me Keleka once – a…

Attack The Opponent: Hawaii Warriors

Hawaii legit might be one of the best teams in the Western Division of the Mountain West. Nobody really knows what that means. Hawaii has been about as dangerous as this guy since 2007 or so. But this is a different Hawaii. Okay, not so different, but they are less inept than usual. In the…

Attack The Opponent: Virginia Cavaliers

UVA is an interesting team. Keep in mind, this is based on data from three games. Not a huge sample size, but a wildly varying one. Virginia has lost in close games to two ranked teams (UCLA and The Rosen One, and cautiously decent Notre Dame) and notched a close victory over FCS William and…

Attack The Opponent: Idaho State Bengals

Chaos reigns. There was a football game last Saturday night with a crazy ending between two teams I can’t quite remember right now. Arkansas lost to Toledo. Auburn nearly lost to Jacksonville State. Notre Dame almost lost to Virginia after looking amazing vs. Texas last week. Washington State lost to Portland State last week as…
