OK, I am not sure what was the worst thing about this game... <BR> <BR>1) That the game was boring as sin <BR>2) That the teams with the worst uniforms this side of Oregon were on the same field <BR>3) That they kept showing the Boise State Band Dancers... yikes... <BR>4) That the TCU chant is the most annoying thing since the stupid FSU chop <BR> <BR>(Message edited by zo1 on January 05, 2010)

Bahahaha... After seeing the Band Dancers I intentionally skipped the halftime. That is great though.

wakereviews 01-05-2010 6:40 AM

hmmm, but those Boise State Dancers were pretty hot <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/4387/754346.jpg" alt="Upload">

This was not the way I hoped this would end. I love TCU (I was a heartbeat away from going there, still concidering transfering). The Idaho dancers and band was quite possibly the worst part of the game. They should of just stayed on those beautiful TCU girls.... They were top notch. <BR> <BR> <BR>I mean seriously, as if the quality wasn't bad enough, those uniforms did not help their cause.

psudy 01-05-2010 8:00 AM

At least you got to watch it! Cable went out all over town. I was pissed!!!! I did get to see the TCU cheerleaders though. Nice.

magellan 01-05-2010 8:35 AM

Blind cowbell player and all, they proved they are far better than anyone ever gave them credit for. I loved seeing them beat up TCU. It was the only bowl game I watched where both teams showed up and played hard. The better team won.

ttrigo 01-05-2010 8:46 AM

and they win another fiesta bowl with a trick play as well. gotta love a coach with a pair of brass ones!

lfadam 01-05-2010 9:23 AM

I enjoyed watching it. You guys didnt like the uniforms?! I loved them. Unique. I cant stand Alabama's or Notre Dame's (especially the helmets). Then again, this is coming from a VT student... <BR> <BR>I agree with everything said about BSU and TCU's girls.

notsobueno 01-05-2010 10:14 AM

If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

sixx352 01-05-2010 11:14 AM

Not Many Teams Have gone 14-0! and are always the under dog! Props for that!!! We will just see what people say with BSU's next years schedule now and remember they are only losing 5 seniors. If they make it to the Rose Bowl next year WOW watch out because all of Idaho will be THERE!!! GOOD JOB BRONCOS Keep it up! By the way I liked how they kept there composure at the end by saying they don't think they are number one! Very Classy!!! BRONCO NATION

mike_gilbert 01-05-2010 11:40 AM

Most bcs teams could compile a 14-0 record playing the wac, some of bsu's powerhouse OOC opponents this year included, the mighty uc davis aggies and the hurricane of tulsa. TCU was only the 2nd ranked team they played all year, in comparisson bama has already played 6 ranked teams. The only bad thing about the fiesta bowl was the fact that they didnt match them up against real bcs teams so they would have gotten smoked and ended this bsu woe is me pity party once and for all.

dlwsrider 01-05-2010 11:44 AM

I'm pretty confident in say that if Boise played any other BCS team they would of been beaten. You can say all you want that they beat Oregon, but Oregon became a different team after the Boise game, that is very apparent.

deuce 01-05-2010 12:14 PM

Congrats to Boise State. No excuses about conference or schedule from me. I think they are a solid football team and would have a shot against any team in the BCS.

ttrigo 01-05-2010 12:18 PM

"The only bad thing about the fiesta bowl was the fact that they didnt match them up against real bcs teams so they would have gotten smoked and ended this bsu woe is me pity party once and for all." <BR> <BR>this is what everyone was saying a few years back leading into the OU game. what happened then? gimme a break. they are a solid football team that no ranked teams want to play in their out of conference schedules.

behindtheboat 01-05-2010 12:34 PM

One of the NFL announcers Sunday was commenting on the NFL teams sitting people and getting "cold" being false because college teams go through a much longer waiting period. I disagree, and think most of these bowl teams come out cold, and last night was just that. These teams especially thrive off momentum and ridicule all season, and then had to wait and watch all these other teams play. I think they'd have as good a shot as any to take on the powerhouses

zo1 01-05-2010 12:36 PM

Sorry, I was not trying to open a thread about the quaility of the team that plays on the worst field in the history of man. <BR> <BR>More so to rant about Fox always showing the dancers and that bile taste in the back of my mouth each time they did... <BR> <BR>Edit: Man, I sound like a crabby SOB today. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by zo1 on January 05, 2010)

another great point for a playoff A-dub. Let them take that undefeated momentum into a playoff starting in early december instead of sitting for a month.

baldboarder 01-05-2010 5:27 PM

The BCS didn't have TCU and Boise State play BCS teams because they did not want to get embarassed. TCU's defense was as good as advertised only allowing a great Boise State offense to 10 points. Boise State does not have the depth that many BCS schools have, but once their front line starters were healthy again (especially on defense), they are as good as anyone on both sides of the ball. Boise State beating Oregon was not a fluke at the beginning of the season. They would have beaten Oregon again last night and possibly anyone in the country. Too bad we couldn't find out for sure because the BCS didn't have the guts to let that happen. They didn't want to let Florida, Cincinnati, Texas, or Alabama to suffer the same fate that Alabama did last year when they were thumped by Utah.

dcdave56 01-06-2010 10:02 AM

I'm glad that everyone else noticed that Boise State has the worst band I've ever seen at the college level. WOW.

stroh 01-07-2010 6:08 AM

Strib, <BR> <BR>I'm not real sure on the process but doesn't the bowl get to pick the teams playing? Example Rose Bowl has to offer the top Big 10 team and top PAC 10 team before anyone else. So that took Ohio State and Oregon. Then isn't it sort of like school yard pick 'em? I think the Fiesta Bowl took TCU first and when their pick came back around Boise was still on the table so they couldn't pass them up. Anyone else know for sure?

mike_gilbert 01-07-2010 10:56 AM

"They would have beaten Oregon again last night and possibly anyone in the country" <BR> <BR>What about boise state's play in the fiesta leads you to believe that?? They scored one td off a fake punt and the other off a pick 6, and barely beat the mwc champ. Save your boise state fairytales for the window lickers on the short bus.

mastercraft1995 01-07-2010 11:09 AM

BSU is a GREAT one game team. This year they played 2 good football teams one in week one and one at the end of the year. I like BSU but they would be a middle of the road team in all of the BSC Conferences. <BR> <BR>The Orange bowl picked before the Fiesta. I think it goes in a rotation every year if the teams aren't locked in like the Rose Bowl. The Rose bowl can pick if one of the teams that should go is playing in the Championship game.

stroh 01-07-2010 11:46 AM

"Save your boise state fairytales for the window lickers on the short bus." <BR> <BR>HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

dlwsrider 01-07-2010 11:56 AM

I don't know if you guys remember, but I saw Boise State almost go down to Lousiana Tech and Tulsa. If a regular BCS team did that, they would be axed in conference. Their trick plays would also not work after about week 4.

Fox is terrible. It's the TNT of football. Can we just have every important game on ABC/ESPN.

baldboarder 01-07-2010 6:54 PM

By not letting Boise State and TCU play BCS teams, the BCS got the reaction they wanted from you BCS Conference supporters. They have you brainwashed to think that they couldn't have beaten other BCS conference champions. The Sugar Bowl could have easily picked TCU and had plenty of fans would have attended the game from Fort Worth. Both teams played incredible defense against very good offenses in the Fiesta Bowl. I'm really tired of hearing the argument from people saying that non-BCS teams can't compete, then watching top BCS conference teams schedule bottom feeder non-BCS teams and division 1AA teams in their non-conference games. It is obvious to me and should be obvious to you that the objective of the BCS conferences is to control the money, not compete with non-BCS schools, and to keep non-BCS schools down. Again, the BCS Conferences do not want to compete with non-BCS Conferences for big money bowl games. Sounds kind of like OPEC, doesn't it?

stroh 01-08-2010 7:37 AM

I'm not brainwashed on anything. I think they can compete with alot of teams and I also think Florida would have blown their doors off. Why handcuff the Sugar Bowl? They have the right to select what teams they wanted. The obviously felt that Cincy/Florida would have been a bigger draw.

baldboarder 01-08-2010 9:24 PM

Brandon, I guess we'll never know because they did not let Florida play Boise or TCU? I heard the same comments last year before the Alabama-Utah game. I agree with you about handcuffing the Sugar Bowl. Why not have no automatic bids? Let each team compete for the major bowls on their own merit. Why should a conference champion not ranked in the top 15 get an automatic bid while another conference champion in the top 10 get overlooked because of so called BCS affiliation? In the past before there were congressional hearings and threats of lawsuits, a 5th ranked team was overlooked for a 17th ranked team. Again, it's all about controlling the money.
