Cowboy Block Party: BSU Not Invited!
The Oklahoma State Cowboys threw an old fashioned football block party last Saturday with the "block party" emphasis on Boise State punters.
In their first two games of the season Boise States defense created chaos and the "Defensive Throne" became talk of the internet.
Saturday in Stillwater the BSU defensive throne sat empty and that's exactly the way Boise State came away from Stillwater...empty!
The 44-21 loss was fueled by two blocked punts deep in Boise State territory and both led to quick Cowboy touchdowns.
BSU head coach Bryan Harsin has a couple of weeks to put together the missing pieces since the Broncos have a bye week ahead and he has already started by saying this does not end the season.
Harsin said all the goals are still the same, a Mountain West Championship and a solid bowl game.
Goals and expectations are very different. Many fans expected the Broncos to go unbeaten but that was never a realistic goal...or a goal at all!
BSU knew September was going to be tough with road games at Troy, Oklahoma State and Wyoming. Wyoming is next on the 29th.
BYU just beat Wisconsin in Madison, the Badgers were ranked 6th, Fresno State blew out UCLA Saturday and Utah State nearly shocked Michigan State. The broncos still have to play all three of those teams plus San Diego State and an Air Force team that has a tradition of giving the broncos all they can handle.
The loss Saturday was disappointing mostly because from the kickoff, Boise State didn't seem to be having fun. When A.J. Richardson made his one handed TD grab only one bronco was there to pat his helmet.
Remember Kellen Moore? He'd sprint 80 yards to congratulate a receiver! That spirit was missing.
This time the "process" failed Boise State. This wasn't just another Saturday and another game, this was an early season Super Bowl....Sometimes it's okay to act like a kid in the candy store,
