Coach Bleu has dwelled in Bronco Stadium for years, and seen hundreds of half-time speeches, and has done all he could to help his beloved Broncos when he could. And, while the Blue Turf gets the credit, very few realize is that it is Coach Bleu. The first time he was spotted was against Weber State.. their big TE was all alone running 20 yards ahead of the nearest Bronco... when suddenly he tripped as the Blue reached up and grabbed him... the Bronco defense, given the chance to regroup, was able to hold Weber scoreless on that drive. Upon watching a replay of that game, a flicker was seen, a flicker that, once slowed down, clearly showed a man in a Bronco letterman jacket driving the TE into the turf in perfect form for the tackle.
After searching long and hard for a way to communicate with Coach Bleu.. a séance
was held on the 50 yard-line and a Vandal doll was sacrificed in effigy.
Coach Bleu appeared, and agreed to come forward each week of the football season
and share his thoughts about the upcoming game with Bronco fans around the
world. This is his first installment.....
|The WAC Season continues for the Broncos with the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. Tulsa, who has never challenged for the WAC title in the 2 years since the Broncos joined the WAC, have suddenly become a force in the WAC race after knocking off Pre-Season favorite Hawaii last week. What must the Broncos do to weather the storm??|
|Teams:||Boise State (Broncos)||Tulsa (Golden Hurricanes)|
|Wins of note:||Louisiana Tech, Wyoming||Arkansas State, Hawaii|
Coach Bleu's 5 Keys to a Bronco Win:
|Coach Bleu's Player Picks: *
watch for these players on Saturday
* Ryan Dinwiddie (Licking his chops after last week)
* David Mikell (Waiting for this game since the Idaho game)
* Lawrence Bady (Out to prove Gilligan isn't the only option)
* Andy Avalos (Korey Hall almost gets the nod, but AA's experience and speed make him the defensive stopper to watch)
* Gabe Franklin (Could get multiple picks as Tulsa falls behind and has to throw to catch up.)
* Derek Schouman (Too good to be a True Freshman, this kid makes the ole Coach smile!)
