Now go write that letter !Actually, already done, weeks ago. I even got a response, very respectful, and a phone call as well. And apparently a lot more did, because now BSU has backed off confirming the UTM game. I suspect that it will probably get done, but they have gotten heat for it, unlike the cowards in the SEC who get praised for scheduling 42 cupcake games for next Fall. Aren't you proud, Bayou? In the ONLY games your school controls, you get to be a playground bully. Boy are you tough, and proud of it! Towson St., N. Texas, Idaho, be honest, is it even possible to do worse? What happened to the Tigers of Last year, who did it right? Did boosters complain about it? Or is it too stressful to play a real OOC schedule?
Are you all freaks? My, the craziness of this thread and the loonieness of the posts confounds me as to whether many of you all can be out in public, sans a helmet. I mean, seriously, do you all ever go back and read your posts? Remarkable that you all can piss on each other day after day, month after month and yer after year. Utterly amazing.You gotta admit Bulldawg, it makes for a great read. Even P-Diffy makes the occasional appearence.
Boise that backed out of the offer from Nebraska and Arkansas if i am not wrong.
Has it ever entered your pea sized brain that what you are argueing for in Boise's case, is probably what is happening for those 42 other teams you feel the need to belittle ?Wow, what would that make the size of your brain, little fellow? A grain of sand?
Those "little cupcakes" are getting the chance you claim to want for BSU. The SEC teams you are demanding be looked down upon for not giving a little guy a chance in BSU's case, are doing just that to the case of the 42 schools you now call cupcakes.Gee, aren't they generous? How clueless can you be, they aren't giving "the little guy a chance," not even close. They're hiring hookers, since they know that their fans, like you, will pay to watch your team play anyone. And then after 4 straight home games in which they win easily, everyone, from the coaches to the players to the poll voters to the media, and yes all the way down to the lowest of the fans, will be convinced that once again, the team is invincible. It's amazing, isn't it? When you beat up on the football equivalent of 3rd graders, anyone can look good. It's done deliberately, to maximize revenue, not travel any more than they absolutely have to, and to make the conference look better than it probably is. After all, with 42 creampuff games, the SEC will have a higher winning percentage than anyone.
Actually, BSU is doing home and home series with all of the WAC, C-USA, and other nonAQ's they play. As to loss of revenue, think about it. If LSU played Boise, are you trying to tell me that the TV revenues would be worse than when you play Towson State? When BSU played VT, it was the 2nd highest rated game in ESPN history, which is why they are helping Boise broker deals with Georgia, Michigan St., and others. No, LSU would make a lot more money if they played Boise instead. The real reason is COWARDICE, prove me wrong.
You really are not that smart are you Smiles ? Is BSU giving all the little schools they play a H & H ? Is BSU willing to take a loss in revenue, just to help the little trade schools around them ?
Virginia Tech, Boise State set ESPN ratings records
Not only did Boise State's dramatic 33-30 victory over Virginia Tech live up to much of the preseason hype on the field, it also attracted a record amount of eyeballs to the television screen Monday night.
According to ESPN, Monday night's game was the network's most viewed college football game ever in terms of households, and its 7.3 rating was the highest rating for a college football game in 16 years as almost 9.9 million viewers tuned into the telecast. Only USC's game at Ohio State in 2009, which averaged almost 10.57 million viewers, has ever attracted more people to an ESPN college football telecast.
In addition, the game was the most viewed program of the day across all networks — broadcast and cable — and was the highest-rated college football game during the season's opening weekend. The game became ESPN’s most-viewed and highest-rated non-Saturday college football telecast since at least 1990 (when these sorts of things began being tracked by the network)
Many of those seasons they have finished in the top 5 or 10. Just stop and think about that for a second. That my friends is a model of consistency. How many schools out there AQ or otherwise would kill to be able to say that they finished 15th or higher in 8 out of the last 10 polls?
