The BCS controversy continues as the season comes to an end


  • Marty 6 years ago

    As a Boise State fan I am grateful for the invite and win at the Fiesta Bowl. Bronco Nation really turned out for the game and made a whole lot of noise. My hope is that BSU and it's fans can remain humble and not toot our own horns too much now that we won. As we walked back to the parking lot after the game I saw a BSU fan pound the side of a car full of TCU fans and as he was hitting the side of the car he was yelling "TC WHO? TC WHO?" It turned my stomach that he acted that way. It was such a contrast to what coach Pete said after the game that he had great respect for TCU and that the game really could have gone either way. So, I hope that the BSU fans can be grateful for the win and for the #4 ranking and that we just quietly keep winning our games because that will speak for itself and gain greater respect than inviting ourselves to the White House or making demands on the BCS.

    Marty, thanks for the comment. I could not agree more. While the BCS seems to be dissing the bowl busters, it is still their game. The teams and the fans have to realize that winning is what causes the need for change, not complaining and certainly not legal action. We have to avoid being poor sports. As an example, it would be much much better and more pleasant if that dude would high five the TCU fans. We are in this together.

    Our first Fiesta Bowl was the "greatest game ever played," and this year's game I am calling the perfect game. I hear that the Fiesta bowl was the highest rated show on TV that night. That plus the huge turnout are the things that mean money and the things that will influence the powers that be.

    I know I am doing my share of slamming the BCS for the matchup they gave BSU, but they are not completely wrong. It was the perfect game after all, and that is what the Fiesta Bowl said they were looking for.

    Thanks again Marty.
