Can the little dog run with the big dog????

After one quarter....BSU 14 - OU 7

What does a win for BSU do to the face of NCAA D1 football?

The Boise QB is a fast son of a gun. They are outplaying OU. Peterson has looks like he hasn't played in a long time, I guess I was expecting a little more.

The boise state QB looks like he could be another matt jones/randle el making coming out of school if he has some decent hands and someone is willing to work with him. He runs a 4.5

Peterson looks like he's got a lot of us rust on top of BSU's 8 man front.

The OU quarterback , Paul Thompson, is horrible. OU has probably outplayed Boise but Thompson keeps chucking up INTS.. and Boise state has taken advantage of them.

Ummmm not even. OU has been outplayed. BSU's defense has not let them have anything. Every catch they were there. Tackling has been great.

What game are you watching? Boise State has not moved the ball consistently. Their points are coming mainly from turnovers and field position. OU has been moving the Ball, but then the Qb throws an ill-advised throw. OU has 4 turnovers and Boise state only has one, and OU is only down by eight.

OU's about to get the ball back with about 2:40 left.

Yeah, Thompson is playing horribly. If OU loses it's sqarely on his shoulders. It's a very exciting game regardless.

The tackling has been spectacular!!! My boy Rufus Alexander looks like he's everywhere!!!! I REALLY want us to draft this guy in April. He seems to have a superb nose for the ball. And that strip was impressive too!!!

He and Meco could anchor our LB core for years to come!! The two of them would devestate offenses together!!

Could YTF or Kasta give a prediction as to when he would be drafted?

What game are YOU watching? Boise State is outplaying OU in every part of the game. Peterson isn't running worth a crap. Thompson is pulling a David Carr imitation, and Boise's OL is manhandling OU's defensive line.

Other than that, OU is playing just great.:rolleyes:

On second thought, if for some reason Ohio State does lose, and that makes Florida the BCS champions, is there a chance something like three years ago happens with LSU and USC, with a split national championship?

gg no re
01-02-2007, 01:14 AM
is there a chance something like three years ago happens with LSU and USC, with a split national championship?I believe that happened because the AP, in addition to the BCS, gave out its own National Championship, resulting in two being given out.

It's not, that is why there should be a playoff system. Basically, with the current system you are telling BSU that they have no shot at winning a championship because of their schedule.

YoungTexanFan
01-02-2007, 01:20 AM
Wow. Quick comments from the game I saw.

The BSU coach is due for a huge raise and is about to have his recruiting budget increased ten-fold.

Rufus Alexander is better than advertized. He is bigger than the last time I saw him. He is a solid open field tackler and can get after the QB. This should solidify him as a late 1st, but could still slip with guys like Earl Everett and Timmerman yet to play.

AP was rusty until late. AP won't return because I see very little hope in that team to come. Who the heck is going to be their next QB?

Neither D-line impressed me at all.

Ok's O-line did not really impress me.

BSU's Oline did impress me a lot however. They can pass block really well, I especially like the BSU LT.

My sleeper from this game is the BSU TE. Good hands and good size. Came up big and created seperation. Knows how to shift formations and play multiple spots. He did have a stupid penality early for rolling over a OU guy. Sleeper TE maybe.

The BSU QB has some intangiables. He is not an NFL QB though. He doesn't have the arm or accuracy, but he is a winner. I see him as an H-back or WR convert. He has a future in the NFL possibly, but it won't be as a QB.

Awesome fake on the 2-pt conversion - did you see the quarterback holding his hands up before the runner crossed the goal line? (it was on a replay) He knew he had them all faked out before the play was finished - what a finish!!!!

Gutsy call, but I like it. Even if they held OK to a field goal on the next OT, they would still need another touchdown to win it. Their chances were just as good on the 2-pointer as another OT possession - especially with the perfectly executed fake.

That game was amazing. More than once, I caught myself yelling "Holy S---!!!" out loud.

I wasn't too excited about it until I saw the end of the 1st quarter when they were up 14-0.

Boise State fans should be proud. They went for broke and came up big. I was really impressed with the playcalling and even more impressed with the execution.

That was just an amazing game. Congrats to the Broncos of Boise State. I like most people thought that Oklahoma was going to stomp on them but they proved me wrong! And man was I glad that I was wrong! That was one of the most fun game I've ever seen. Boise State didn't really use much trickery until the last two plays. I love watching those trick plays and when it works it's just absolutely wonderful. Obviously the coaching staff and the players had to plan it and execute it to perfection and that's why it's so much fun. On the other hand I wanted to see how Adrian Peterson looked because we might have interest in him for the draft. He looked ok and obviously the 3 months he missed affected him and the team. But bottom line is that that it was a great game to watch and as a football fan you couldn't ask for a better ending. Also, did anyone read on espn that Ian Johnson the rb for Boise State proposed to his girlfriend after the game?! How wild was that?! Congrats Boise State.

I was cheering for Boise all the way do to the fact that I have been following them for a few years. I picked up on them back when Pat Hill said BCS or bust and I wondered who played in that conference so I have kept tabs on the WAC for awhile. Will say this best game I have seen and I would rather have IJ than AP any day. I love how all of these Longhorn fans feel that they some how attached to Boise State now becuase they beat OU. I am not a Sooners fan by any means and I could careless about the Longhorns considering I went to a 1-AA school. I dont have any feelings over that rivalry.
