Boise State Football

6:49 a.m. — Bronco Fiesta win would be marred by playoff system (in News from the Web)

Here I am getting video action at the Fiesta Bowl.

I know there is more to life than reliving Boise State’s Fiesta Bowl victory.

But let’s put that off for another few days (at least until we get caught up from not sleeping that first full night of the year).

In that spirit, here’s an online Sports Illustrated article that says all that talk of a playoff system for college football sparked by BSU’s spectacular win should be put to rest.

I’ll admit I’m pretty impressionable. If you make a good argument, I’m likely to side with you, at least until I read the next article.

But I think this one might stick.

The author makes the argument that the post-game celebration couldn’t have been as gleeful if the team — and the fans — had to immediately start gearing up to play in one more game.

Basically, he says the ending of Monday’s overtime win was the best way possible to end the season.

Since that last quarter almost gave me a heart attack, I think it’s probably better for our health that we don’t have to go through that again (until next year?).

And of course we’ve got everything you’d ever want to know about BSU football here.



Here’s selections of video I shot in Arizona before and during the Fiesta Bowl.
