Spot Me: Help me out here. What spot, exactly, is hit when one is perfectly satisfied with a meal? I assume it's in the stomach region, but I've never really heard of people refer to their stomach as their "spot." Now, women on the other hand, have a different kind of spot. But I digress...
Game Ball #1:Ashlei Nyong-Dunham. Had two interceptions to help the Bronco defense shut down the Aggie attack that helped steal the hearts out of every Aggie fan, player, coach and exotic pet. Stealing is so wrong. As punishment, Ashlei gets a Game Ball. Bad Ashlei! Bad! Don't ever not do it again!!
This Just In: On Sunday, another 1,102 student tickets were not picked up. How this affects the official game attendance, I have no idea.
Century Marks: Lee Marks became the first Bronco back to top 100 yards this year, finishing with 112 on 18 carries. That gets him yet another Game Blog Game Ball, otherwise known as GBGB's.
I Want My Mumme: Poor Hal. In his first game on the Blue, his pass-happy offense was pass-sad. To be fair, it may take two or three years for him to recruit players to fit his system, and then we'll see if he can turn around an NMSU program that's starving for wins like Lindsay Lohan is starving for... well, anything.
Scratch Game: Now there's a weird word. Scratch. You can scratch and sniff, or scratch and win, which usually means you don't win scratch, though on occasion you might get lucky and win a little extra scratch. You can be a scratch golfer. You can scratch an itch, and you can start from scratch, especially if you have an itch to start in the first place. There are lots of ways to scratch. And I haven't even scratched the surface. But I digress...
Scoreboard: This could be a nice trend. Check out these numbers: 21, 38, 45, 49, 56. Those aren't lottery numbers; they're points scored by the Broncos in the last five games. Can they continue the trend and put up 63 next week? Odds are about as likely as winning the lottery, but it would be nice to keep this trend going. Nah, scratch that. I'd just be happy with a win.
LA of Averages: Legedu Naanee snagged 3 passes for 83 yards. Now, I'm not very good with numbers, but let me see if I can figure this out... That's 83 yards... only 3 catches... carry the one... divide by pi... yep, that's a good average! He gets a Game Ball! An average one!
Rumor Has It: So far this year, Boise City Police have issued 543 parking tickets to BSU students. Only 371 were picked up. But I digress...
How About A Field Goal, Just For Kicks?: Boise State has scored 20 straight touchdowns over its last 2-1/2 games. No field goals. No safeties. Just touchdowns. How boring, in a good mind-wandering sort of way.
Bowl Us Over: It's official. BSU is bowl eligible for the 6th straight year and have clinched yet another winning season. A sweep of the four remaining games and we can start debating if an away bowl game will invite us. Short of that, some home cookin' in the MPC Bowl will be likely, possibly against Maryland. I'm not familiar with Maryland... are they Aggies or Bulldogs? I believe they have to be one or the other for us to play them this season.
Game Ball #4: The Defense. To put it simply, they were 3-and-outstanding. They held NMSU to 176 total yards, and that included 44 on the last drive in garbage time. The D also mixed in a nice variety of sacks, interceptions, fumble recoveries, big hits and tackles-for-losses for perhaps their most fully-rounded game of the year (at least statistically.)
Blue Streak: The home-game winning streak has reached 30 games. Eh, not bad. The conference winning streak is now at 31. Yawn, not bad, either. I just won a free Hawaiian vacation for me and three Sports Illustrated swimsuit models and Roadhouse BBQ ribs and beer for life. Ho-hum.
I've Dated Five Boise State Girls. Only three picked me up. But I really totally completely digress...
Up Next: I forget. Whoever we play, hopefully it won't be another boring game that causes my mind to wander... oh look! A bulldog!
