Would that be that 6-6 Miami team that blew you out of the stadium, 24-6? Now that would be scrapping the bottom of the intellectual barrel.Yep, that would be the team we scheduled the year they came off their last NC. If you can argue you can't control what the teams on your schedule do in their other games, I'd like the same opportunity. We scheduled a team that was coming off a NC for a home-n-home. If they fell off since then (as we did last year) is that our AD's fault?
And do tell, what possible connection is some championship won in the previous century to what is going on now? I love you guys, your rear view mirror is bigger than your windshield.Wow, did you really just say that, and then in your next several posts crow about your wins over "4 BCS conference or divisional champions?" How many seasons did it take exactly for Boise to accomplish that? You prove me right over and over - you want to be just like the very teams and fans you disparage.
Boise's WORST season in recent memory is 7-5. Tell you what, if and when Boise ever does that bad, we can discussLet's discuss it now, shall we? I can't find any record of Boise EVER going 7-5. I can, however find fairly recent records of 5-6 (1997,) 2-10 (1996,) 3-8 (1993,) and 5-6 (1992.) It seems your "recent memory" is not too recent and pretty selective - but we all pretty much know that, don't we? (For the record, I chose those seasons because they all came after OSU's last previous losing season in 1988 which I had referenced in my previous post.
I couldn't have said it better myself. Even you admit that Boise, on the field is as good as anyone. But such a fact is almost irrelevant to you. Gosh, silly me, I was foolish enough to think that a championship was about who was the best THIS year, not 20 years ago. So I guess, since the Saints sucked for 20 years, that they had no business in the playoffs when they won. And since the Texans have never been good, that they didn't belong in the playoffs this year, yes? This is so stupid, I marvel that you even make the argument.Show me where I said anything about Boise not deserving NC title game consideration. My main beef with your stupidity is your constant harping that the big-time AQs should play at Boise, and/or are afraid to bring Boise to their houses. Though I would point out that in the NFL with a 32-team league playing a 16 game schedule the competition level of various schedules does not differ so radically as it does in a 120-team league playing a 12 game schedule. I would think even you would understand the math involved in that, wouldn't you? You're a joke. You should really try to keep track of what you're arguing with who... or just go away.
Yes, Boise in effect beat V-T twice, we'll take the credit. I was at that game and watched V-T come off of the field, those guys were physically beat up, exhausted, both physically and mentally. Boise dominated that game in the trenches, something that our critics never give credit for. Whoever scheduled for VT should have been fired, on five days rest, they had to face a crafty option running team. Yes, JMU was an FCS school, but they were the polar opposite of Boise, and frankly, VT was domoralized and not focused, hence the loss. So yes, Boise will take credit for that win.You are so conceited. Try looking at the W/L records of teams after they play most any ranked opponent - the results will be very similar. Teams often lose the week after a tough game (win or lose) when the next opponent is also decent. It is tough to get up for 2-3 weeks in a row and avoid the injuries, stay focused, etc. You probably wouldn't understand that though, since you NEVER play 2-3 good opponents in a row. Do you think that might be one reason you get no respect for "the best record in FBS?"
We see that a lot in Boise. SC beat Georgia the next week too, mainly because we beat them up so physically that they needed a week to recover. But both schools then turn it around and run the table, showing their talent. Same thing happened to Oregon, too, the next week they barely beat Purdue, an inferior team
You leave out a lot of details here, tee. First, if those other teams were playing Boise's schedule, they'd also have Boise's budget, Boise's recruits, and a Boise-sized stadium. I'd be willing to bet that they would do half as well as Boise has. Keep in mind, Boise won all of those games with no money, no-name recruits, and a tiny population base.All excellent reasons why no one decent would have any reason to want to go to Boise. Why should they? To appease your massive ego? Sorry, you're not that important smiles. If you want the big boys to play you home-n-home, give them a solid reason to do so. You could start by not rejecting offers like Nebraska's when they show.
Boise doesn't give a rip what you think...Again, the respect of folks like you is the last thing I want.That is either a lie, or you are really too dumb to understand the point. R-E-S-P-E-C-T is the whole reason you are where you are, smiles. Boise can continue to rack up 11-12 win seasons forever, but as long as their schedule generates no respect it woouldn't matter. Moving to the Big East will help, but not that much. The MWC was probably better than the Big East the last few seasons already, and with the way it's been gutted and watered down it probably won't even hold on to AQ status - with good reason.

Boise can continue to rack up 11-12 win seasons forever, but as long as their schedule generates no respect it woouldn't matter.Let's see, I'm a Boise fan. Here is a thread trageted at me and my team. It's generated a ton of healthy debate.
I'll take it. Reading your whining post is music to my ears, my friend. A sure sign that you are successfully generating respect is when a message board thread goes into dozens and dozens of pages, all filled with fans from big schools who can't stand you, and your team.
I'd say that Boise has you right where they want you. If Boise was half as bad as you claim they are, then why is this thread so long? Why did they have more players drafted this weekend than pretty much anyone? Why have they spent more weeks in the top 25 than pretty much anyone? Why do they have so many passionate enemies? Must be doing SOMETHING right to get all of that.
Again, I take it. Thanks, Erkper.

Why did they have more players drafted this weekend than pretty much anyone?Having 6 players drafted is nice. Ohio State had 5 players drafted in the 2003 draft, the first one following their 2002 title team. However, that was junior dominated team, and they had an NFL record 14 players drafted in the 2004 draft. All in all, over 30 players from the 2002 OSU team were drafted, and numerous others signed as free agents from that team. You're bragging about six players picked in the draft? Seven times, Ohio State has had 3 or more players picked in the first round, including 5 first rounders in 2006 including AJ Hawk, Nick Mangold and Bobby Carpenter, who were solid contributors as freshmen on the 2002 team (Santonio Holmes redshirted in 2002, and early NFL entry Donte Whitner was a freshman in 2003). Hell, Ohio State was 6-7 in 2011 and still had 4 players drafted.
Boise is small potatoes (pun intended) in the world of college football.

If you are really happy with the way things are, please quit crying about how things need to change.
