Today is the 2010 Boise State Broncos Blue and Orange game

Today is the annual Boise State Broncos Blue and Orange scrimmage. We expect to see a range of plays that show top level offensive and defensive skills. The defense should win it again by design or not. Coach Pete has said that offense sells tickets, but defense wins championships, and judging from the earlier scrimmages this year, that is what he has: a defense that wins championships.

The only notable change to the team from last year is the absence of Kyle Wilson who is working his way into the NFL (Richie Brockel is gone, too but he did not play much last year due to injuries). So today should be a confidence builder for the next bowl projections.

BSU starts this season in the top five, which is the highest pre season ranking ever for BSU. So here it is: maybe BSU can run the table once again and go to the National Championship.

In all seriousness, what is it going to take to get BSU into the Mountain West so they can dominate that and finally get some respect?

    Isn't the Mountain West struggling for their own respect as well. I think the BCS Conferences want the Brocos to make that move because that buts all of their potential busters into 1 conference. That would change the song from a BCS issue to a conference issue. So, we all know that would reset the clock, because it would now be aruging a new issue, giving the BCS a stay of execution for a few more years...it is an old lawer ploy change the charges and the BCS resets their clock

    Thanks for the comment. Honestly I hadn't thought of it that much. I was only thinking that it's time for BSU to move on to the next level. And Since BYU set the precedent, I thought the Mountain West would be the next logical step. You have given me a different point of view.

    Thanks for your article. I remember BSU attempting to get into the Mtn. West Conference not too many years ago, and the Mtn. West chose TCU over BSU. I'm sure that there were many reasons for that decision, but BSU really is a natural fit for the Mtn. West, and that BSU games against Utah and BYU always generate great excitement. I think sometimes we tend to look past the season and speculate about the BCS. I'm not sure if the whole BCS thing will ever be figured out. As far as generating excitement for all the fans week to week during the season, BSU should be in the Mtn. West. I'm still trying to figure out how La. Tech got into the WAC. Louisianna is west of what, Florida?

    Thanks Marty. I obviously don't have the big picture. These posts are helping.
    By the way, I meant to write an article about the actual game with pictures. It was a good afternoon. 12,000 or so people were there. Look for that article hopefully tonight.

    I know this may sound stupid but am I the only one that noticed the incredibly bad music being played for an hour before the game? I really thought it was a joke someone was playing....I mean really...Rick Springfield and the Moody Blues? I may not be able to articulate why this might be a bigger deal than it seems at 1st glance but after seeing all the press and recruits there I couldn't help but think how "back roads, redneck" effect the music gave. I am 41, totally old school rock guy who hates modern music btw. Is it just me?
