Letters to Boise State

Hello again, kids. I've had some things rattle around in my head that I needed to get out regarding the Boise State game, and I figured that it'd be best to just put them down in a series I'd like to call "Letters to Boise State."


Fair warning, they may be cheesy, long, and there may be multiple ones. Truth be told, they may all say the same thing, but if I don't get them out, it'll drive me crazy. It's like someone gave me this little idea through Inception, but not at all like what I just said. Make sense? It's OK. I don't get it, either.

Dear Boise State,

Hi. We haven't met and we never will. The reason is because although I may meet a few of you leading up to September 3rd, I won't meet all of you and this letter is to everyone. So, try as you might to find me and set me straight in what I'm about to say, just know that very few of you will actually do it.

I have a problem with you, BS. I hope you don't mind me referring to you as "BS" for this letter. Surely you trust that the shortened version of your name isn't some kind of suggestive play on initials on my part. I'd venture to say NO ONE thinks of "Bull Sh*t" when they see BS in this post. They're thinking "Boise State...that's the team we play in September." Yep. That's it.

The reason I'm writing you today is because I saw this piece detailing your strengths heading into 2011 by your one team blog "One Bronco Nation Under God." While I agree with OBNUG that you're a good team, there's no point in me going further than that. If you want me to break it down clearly for you, you're high off your collective asses if you think that there are no weaknesses on your team.

Let's just take a look at what College Football News says about your team. I picked them out randomly because Pete Fiutak puts a positive spin on BS and there's some nice statistics for me to pull from there as well. I figured if I can find flaws in a positive article, then the flaws do indeed exist.

Fiutak swears up and down that it's time for America to believe BS is a good team and I think he is exactly right. In fact, us Georgia folks could learn a thing or two about respecting what your coach has done with the talent he has on hand. If there's a better coach in America that puts guys in the places they need to be in order to be successful, then I'd love to have him pointed out to me.

However, it's the ON PAPER stuff that's killing me. Let's take a look at your Offensive Line. It's projected as a strength, but you have ONE guy tipping the scale at 300 lbs. ONE. Just as a point of reference, we run a 3-4, meaning we'd have to put two linebackers on the line to go hat-for-hat with yours. If we did that, we'd still outweigh the line by 23 lbs. That may not seem like much difference, but remember, there are two LINEBACKERS that go into that equation. If  you'd like another point of reference, every single one of our front three guys outweigh the man they'll be going against. The Nose Tackle (whether it be Jenkins or Geathers) will at least outweigh anyone on your line by 50 lbs.

Let's look at the other trench. The combined weight across our Offensive Line outweighs your front four plus your heaviest linebacker (Senior Byron Hout...a very good player) by 312 lbs. If you want to look at it another way, you could add your biggest offensive lineman at 300 lbs. and still be short.

The size difference between us and you guys is ridiculous. Now, I know that you're going to scream about scheme for a second, so let me go ahead and address that, too. Our goal is to play grind it out football with you. We don't want to get tricky. We have full confidence that if we go hat-on-hat with you, that we'll beat you. Why? Because Volvos don't beat Mack Trucks. They just survive the crash. We know that being smaller means being faster. What we're hoping on is that we're quick enough to get hands on you, because if THAT happens, you're be getting out of our way, whether you like it or not.

Didn't you also lose your two best Wide Receivers in the offseason? Yep. You did.

You're still a very good team, though. You have a great QB and everyone raves about your scheme, but they forget how good you are at running the ball. You're pretty decent at it. You do have an athletic, albeit smaller, Offensive Line. That works for you, and that's great. You have a quick, swarming Defense that's been really good the past few years at getting after the opposing teams QB.

You also hang half a hundred on everyone you play because of two reasons (and they're counterproductive to one another). The first reason states that you have to blow them out because if you don't, you won't get the respect nationally from people who don't watch football at 11:00 PM on Friday nights. The second reason you put up 50+ on everyone is because the teams you normally play suck. That's why one loss (Hi Nevada!) drops you from Champ to Chump. But let's not talk about schedules, because that has no bearing on this game, right? Right.

I'm sure I'll get more writing in later about this, BS, in the coming days as you talk more smack over and over again. You're getting mighty confident for a team that still hangs its hat on beating Oklahoma. You do know that was five years ago, right? The unfortunate thing is you can't seem to remember when we beat you like you stole something six years ago. Here's the video. My favorite part? Go to about 3:00...






And don't give me that crap that "Oh that was Dan Hawkins! We have Chris Peterson Petersen (H/T to commenter DVac for pointing that out) now!" Well just "blahbiggityblahblah." You should thank your lucky stars for Dan Hawkins. If he hadn't built BS up to begin with, you'd never be where you are now.

See, BS, we HAVE to beat you. We're doing it for ourselves, but also for the SEC. You think you'd be Alabama? Florida? LSU? Arkansas? Maybe even Tennessee? I don't know if you could. So it ain't about you. It's about us having to do it so no one else tells us that we should have. Losing to you is like getting a curable STD. It doesn't matter if the antibiotics took it away, you still got it at some point and you'll always be labeled that way. It's WAY worse to lose to you than it is to beat you. We get nothing for beating you. No one gives you a high five when you didn't sleep with the girl that had an STD. Why? BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO SLEEP WITH A GIRL WHO HAS AN STD.

You're an STD. A big potato STD. Poterpes. Spudmydia. I don't care what you call it. That's what you are and that's what you have. Even if we lose to you and run the table, you can bathe in AJAX and not take off the stench of the loss.

We'll communicate more in the coming weeks, but for right now, just remember one thing. You're the girl with the STD and we don't want to sleep with you.

Until next time kids.

Be safe.

  1. This is brilliant. Kudos! Love the STD analogy. So funny because it's so true. Can't wait to get this game underway and put the BS narrative to bed.

  2. It's Petersen, not Peterson.. I can't take you seriously.

  3. Scout.com average rankings of the 5 recruiting classes 2007-2011, shows UGA # 11 and Boise State # 69. Also, Scout.com has 1 player on Boise State's roster today ranked 4-Star or 5-Star, Kellen Moore only. While UGA has 51. 48-13 the last time you Boise State fans come running in here telling me then, how you would destroy us; and this game will be no different.

    You have no talent; you cannot compete. You will not win. You cannot. You state that no one will play you; but, excuse me we are playing you again.

  4. This is actually a funny post. Full of BS of course, but funny nonetheless. Let's see now this guy is smarter than the entire AP sports wire, all major coaches in the coaches poll and even Los Vegas odds makers. The only fact I picked up from this piece is that the Dawg football team is fat and slow.

  5. Comparing the weight of each line? That's some in-depth analysis! From now on I guess we can forget about playing games and just decide the winner with a weigh-in.

    I thought SEC fans were supposed to know something about football.

  6. Kellen Moore wasn't a 4 Star recruit, his options were BSU, ID St, or ID. We picked him up while looking at his younger brother Kirby.

    Just wondering if you're willing to eat crow when the time comes?

    Your fat guys are fatter than ours so UGAy will automatically win?

    BS guys are faster, didn't you lose your best WR? YOU DID! But it's BS, and WE will always have great WRs. There hasn't been a time when we haven't.

    I know the game is in Georgia, but I don't think it's on the Deliverance. I'd be scared then, because we would most likely be raped by a bunch of buttf**king imbreds.

    I know you "real country boys" (and by real I mean POSERS)eat some weird things, but now you're about to eat crow. So in your next BFing blog, let us know how that shit tastes.

  7. So I noticed the article got picked up on Reddit and a few other places, like MWC message boards. If that's what brought you here, welcome to my corner of the internet.

    All that said, you guys really need to learn how to take a joke. I'm assuming all of you who are so up in arms about what I wrote forgot that 1) I basically said above that you were a great team and 2) I'm a Georgia fan. I'M GOING TO BE BIASED.

    But if you think that I'm all delusional about our chances of winning this game, maybe you missed a few of the gems above where I raved about your team. My favorite line is this one regarding Chris Petersen, "If there's a better coach in America that puts guys in the places they need to be in order to be successful, then I'd love to have him pointed out to me."

    The funny thing is, you want to consider yourself a big boy, but you still get your pull-ups in a bunch whenever someone gives you a little smack talk. Are you a program that's ready to go play for the national title, or are you still the underdog? You can't be both, Boise. Pick one and get over your Napoleon Complex.

    Take the compliments, take the snark and enjoy the ride. There's nothing I'd rather do than beat Boise on Saturday but if you think for two seconds that I (or any half-wit UGA fan for that matter) believe the Dawgs have this game in the bag, you couldn't be more wrong. Read above and point out to me where I did anything other than show where we had an advantage in a specific area, such as weight. Hell, I haven't even predicted a UGA victory.

    Seriously, Boise, you're really the one getting yourself worked up. I'm confident about what I have in my team, win or lose. If you're going to be the team you claim to be, you should feel the same way.

    Shouldn't you?

  10. So it seems the Dawgs are too fat and too slow. They just couldn't keep up with the Bronco's!

  11. You know, before both of you mouth breathers start spouting off, you should do a little bit of your homework. If you check my twitter feed (twitter.com/Ludakit) you'll see a LOT of posts where I give Boise nothing but respect. Boise has a great team. Most of the fans I met were awesome.

    The fact that you guys were probably waiting with baited breath to come over here and post tells me all I need to know about you though. All those wins after all those years and you still act like the less endowed man who drives the sports car.


    Knock yourself out by gloating, but it honestly reeks of desperation to be considered a "big boy." I can take a loss and the lumps that come with it, but if the first thing I do after a win is run to a blog instead of a bar, please, take me to the vet and have him put this Dawg down.

    I apologize for any misspellings. I'm typing this on my phone.

  12. Those above that posted after the game are putting other Bronco fans to shame. One of the biggest frustrations of being a Bronco fan is that you attract people like this that love to stuff loses in others faces. Fortunately, these fans die off quickly. I hope the other Bronco fans you met expressed how lucky we feel to play Georgia and be seen at the same level. This is how the team sees this and this is how long time fans see this.

    I had an excellent experience with Bronco fans here in Atlanta. You guys are a confident bunch, but look at your team, you've EARNED it.

    I'd implore you to go to www.dawgsports.com and listen to our most recent episode of the Dawg-gone Podcast. Kyle and I talk about our experience with the Boise faithful and send some praise to your team as well for a great game. Obviously, we do a LOT of talking about Georgia, but I think you'd be pleased with what you hear regarding BSU.

    Good luck the rest of the way. We're pulling for you guys.
