WAC 2010 Coach and Team Predictions – Clearly There Are Lots of People in America That Do Not Respect Boise State Football – Like Columnist Bob Molinaro of the Virginia-Pilot That Wrote A Column Titled With: “Boise State’s fantastic rank mostly based on fantasies” – Yes, There Are Lots of People That Do Not Understand What Boise State Football is all About Which Only Shows Their Complete and Utter Ignorance – Of Course, With So Many Un-American Candy Asses Running Around Supporting the Bogus BCS Should Anyone Be Surprised That Some People Don’t Know Up from Down?
The WAC Conference kicks of the 2010 season with lots of changes on the horizon as Boise State, Fresno State and Nevada head for greener pastures in the MWC and Boise State strikes for the very top of the college game in 2010. Of course, Boise State finished 2009 at 14 – 0 and didn’t get a chance to play for the National Championship which speaks directly to the Yellow-Bellied Cowards and Un-American Candy Asses behind the Bogus BCS. You support the BCS you say? Fine, we are just glad you were not around when Real Men and Women in America won World War II because Candy Asses would not have been much use going up against Germany and Japan!
With Boise State starting the season ranked very high in all of the polls there are still a lot of people in the country that don’t quite understand what first Dan Hawkins and now Chris Petersen have accomplished at Boise State over the past decade or so. They look at Boise State’s WAC schedule and almost dismiss out of hand the Broncos football program which just shows the ignorance of people that do not have a clue to what they are talking about because most of the people saying such things have never seen Boise State play or practice in person.
Let make this very clear: Boise State is a BIG-TIME football program. Stand on the sidelines before a Boise State game and one will see Boise players that have the size, skill and speed to play with any football team in the country but there are a lot of people that don’t know what they are talking, commenting and writing because they have only seen them play a handful of times on TV and thus have no real understanding of what Boise State football is all about.
First, everyone should know that Chris Petersen has one of the best coaching staffs in the country at Boise State. Second, everyone should know that Boise State is a very physical football team that will pop you in the mouth and then help you get your ass of the ground and then pop you in the mouth again. Third, everyone should know that Boise State has several dozen players that would start for the top teams in the country at specific decisions and in QB Kellen Moore they may very well have the best signal caller in the nation. Fourth, Boise State practices as hard as any team in the country and there is NO team that is asked more from their coaches and that includes the coaches and coaching staffs of the best teams in the country, including Frank Beamer’s very fine staff at Va. Tech. Fifth, if Boise State was included in the latest Pac-10 conference expansion there is no doubt in our mind that under Chris Petersen they would be able to win the Pac-10 in the first year in the conference. Lastly, if Boise State was playing in the Pac-10 in 2010 they…
WOULD BE THE FAVORITE TO WIN THE PAC-10 along with Oregon and USC.
The above points are for everyone out there that lives under the illusion that Boise State is anything but the real deal, like Virginian-Pilot columnist Bob Molinaro who wrote a column recently titled:
“I have a problem with Boise State’s No. 3-ranking in the Associated Press football poll that was released the other day.
Polls are just conversation starters for the most part, and the AP rankings lost a lot of relevance when they stopped being used in the BCS formula.
Even so, when I look at the AP poll, I see evidence of media psychosis that has resulted in an exaggerated image of Boise State.
With its creative offense, Boise State is fun to watch. It’s a plucky group that captures the imagination. I wish the Broncos the best. But they’re not the No. 3 team in the country without an awful lot of wishful thinking on the part of certain people.”
“With its creative offense?” What the Hell does that mean Bob? In 2009 Boise State had the 10 th most prolific offenses in the country averaging 450 yards per game and was No. 1 in scoring at 42.2 points per game. Boise State does not have a “creative offense” but rather runs a pro-style offense that enhances the ability of their QB Moore and also relies on a very strong running game that averaged 187 yards per game last season that is led by a very impressive and very big offensive line. Again, Molinaro’s comments just point to someone that has never seen Boise State play in person and has only seen them a handful of times on TV.
Bob Molinaro continues…
“The media are trying too hard to make Boise State into something it can’t and shouldn’t be – a player in the national title picture. Not with that schedule.
Because it’s so out of touch with reality, the Boise State-hype machine is doing Virginia Tech a big favor. If, as expected, Tech wins the Labor Day opener at FedEx Field, the Hokies’ reputation and ranking will be the beneficiary of Boise State’s overinflated status.”
“If, as expected, (Virginia) Tech wins the Labor Day opener at Fedex Field” What? Virginia Tech is “expected” to beat Boise State on Labor Day?
Uhhhhhh, not quite Bob. The folks that set college football odds for a living do not quite agree with you Bob. We just checked on VegasInsider.com and Boise State is actually a….
2.5 FAVORITE OVER VIRGINIA TECH!
Did you catch that Bob? It is Boise State that is expected to beat Virginia Tech, even playing the game in Va. Tech’s backyard and 2,000 plus miles from Idaho. Again, Molinaro’s comments just point to the fact that most of the people in the media that do not cover the college football game nationally have no clue to what Boise State is really about.
Memo to Bob Molinaro: If you are going to be at the Boise State – Virginia Tech game instead of sitting up in the press box on your rear-end how about you go down to the field before the game and watch Boise State warm-up. There you will find not a “plucky group” of college football players but a REAL FOOTBALL TEAM that if you were willing to suit up would whip your ass, pop you in the mouth and then pick you up off the ground and do it all over again. (The same goes for everyone in the media. Get out of the Damn press box from time to time and get down in the field and see what football is really like instead of sitting “On High” and throwing out your comments from the peanut gallery. College football is played on the field, not in the press box, and if you have a field pass and can get to the field for games then you should do it at every game you cover. Believe that, because your entire view of the game of college football will change if you have been doing nothing but sitting on your ass in the press box for college football games.)
Also Bob, Frank Beamer and the folks at Virginia Tech would be happy to know that YOUR comments will just fuel the Boise State football team even more because very clearly Bob Molinaro and lots of other people that cover Virginia Tech football DO NOT RESPECT Boise State. Chris Petersen and Boise State are very happy to know that you Bob and they are assuming because your comments that Frank Beamer and the Hokies do not RESPECT Boise State either! Thanks for that Bob!
We haven’t a clue to whether Boise State can beat Virginia Tech or not, but we do know that Boise State is going to pop Va. Tech in the mouth and give the Hokies all they can handle and more and Beamer and his football team better be in for the fight of their lives, because the Boise State football team led by Chris Petersen plays for keeps.
Now on to the Coaches Hot Seat 2010 WAC Coach and Team Predictions. We have Boise State going 12 – 0 in 2010 which means they will beat Va. Tech and Oregon State out-of-conference and roll through the WAC for yet another undefeated season. Will 12 – 0 in 2010 get them into a Bogus BCS title game? We haven’t a clue, but what we do know is that in the United States of America a team that finishes its regular season undefeated ALWAYS has an opportunity to play for the championship in the postseason except in the college football and that is because of the Candy Ass and Incredibly Un-American BCS.
Very simply, if you support this Bogus BCS then we wonder who in the Hell raised you because we don’t run across a lot of parents that raise their children to support something as Un-American as the BCS, but then when you have a bunch of Candy Ass college and university presidents that wouldn’t last 5 seconds working in the REAL WORLD off of the college campus that are the ones that prop-up the BCS you start to understand how something so Un-American could exist in the first place.
Yes, if you favor the meaningless exhibition games of the BCS over playing, deciding and a team earning the National Championship on the field of play then you are a nothing more than a DESTROYER of the American Republic, not that the Candy Asses that support the BCS know up from down forget about the great danger out country is in with all this Politically-Correct BS in our nation today.

Hippopotamus Standard Wins for 2010*: 6 – 6
*How many games the team would win if a HIPPO was their head coach. We here at Coaches Hot Seat believe that many schools have softened up their schedule to such a degree that many coaches are getting credit for piling up wins against mediocre foes. Therefore, Coaches Hot Seat introduces for the 2010 season, the “A HIPPO Would Win….Games in 2010″ Standard. We have been very lenient in our picks, and we think very fair to the coaches, especially because the competition within the conferences is getting so tough, but we do believe that every coach should be held to a minimum standard of games won (and of course they will certainly be on the Coaches Hot Seat if they cannot beat the HIPPO!), and thus we introduce the HIPPOPOTAMUS STANDARDS FOR 2010!
