Humbling Praise For Boise State

It has taken a while to assemble, but this is the Part One of the comments received on BroncoCountry from around the nation on the night of "The Game". View comments from college football fans from schools all over the country as they weigh in on the Fiesta Bowl.

The highest praise one can receive comes from an opponent or peer. On a night that will forever live in the collective memories of Bronco fans, BroncoCountry witnessed an outpouring of congratulations from college football fans all across the nation. People from schools all across America dropped by to give kudos to the Bronco football team. It was truly humbling. Here in one place is a collection of those thoughts from Air Force to Georgia:

Unbelievable game. What an effort by your team tonight. And Chris Peterson is one heck of a coach. Congratulations on a very well deserved victory.

Kudo's from a Hog fan...


A few days ago on our board I referred to the Broncos as 'pretenders' predicting a blow out by OU. My ill-advised comment illustrates my lack of knowledge of your conference and the Broncos. Not only were you well prepared and ready to play, you played solidly from start to finish.

What a great bowl game and victory for BSU and the Broncos. There should be no doubt remaining you earned the right to be there and you've demonstrated you can ‘run with the big dogs.'

Congratulations!!

As many Auburn fans have already said...


BIG congratulations to the "gutsiest" team I have seen in a long time, if not ever. War Eagle to all the fans and, most particularly, the players and coaches. Well, well done!:worship

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."Samuel Adams

Re: WAR BRONCOS!!


First of all, I'd like to tag on from the Auburn family and extend a serious congrats to you guys. Awesome play calling and guts.

 
"It's at once amusing and sad to see how Tuberville is often portrayed by those who don't know him well. I've never been around a coach who cares more for the young men who play for him and the grown men who work so hard for him. Anyone who doubts that shouldn't take my word. They should talk to the players or assistant coaches. What Tuberville has done is build a program on a solid foundation of commitment, hard work and doing things the right way. And that's what it's all about." --Rece Davis, ESPN Sportscaster, Bama graduate

Congrats from a BYU COUGAR!


Well, all i have to say is that i am not surprised by the results of last nights game. Even though i am a cougar at heart, my father is a huge boise state bronco, as is my uncle. Well for the last month i have been hearing about how excited and scared he was for the game, excited because its Boise State, and scared because if they lost the mid majors would never step foot on a BCS bowl field again. So, knowing how much cougars are hated by broncos, and for what reasons, i wanted to come on and show everyone that some cougars have class! I realize that when BSU EMBARRASED BYU in provo some years ago it was because the cougars did not have the talent, speed, or the will to win that the broncos had, and BSU proved that again on the big blue the next year. As a cougar i hate the UTES but what the Utah players said this year about Utah being the better team after the BSU victory over Utah makes me hate Utah even more! Boise showed the world last night that they are the best mid major in the world!

Go Broncos!

the son of a bronco!

THANK YOU and Congrats from a Central Michigan fan!


Your team played an awesome ball game and you have a top of the line coach! You really won this one for all Non BCS teams out there. That makes non BCS schools 2-0 the past two years in. Best of luck next season you should have had a shot at the NC this year but the BC$ is B$.

Last night was the first opportunity I got to watch your team play. What a great game and a great win. Congratulations! You definitely earned that one. Gutsy play calling of which you all should be proud

Hope to see you guys get more national air time. I would love watching you play again.

From your UGA brethren


I had to come over to offer my congratulations. Having had the pleasure to meet some BS fans last year when we played you guys, I came across some of the nicest people. My wife and I were jumping on our bed giving each other high fives during your win the other night. A few observations:

1) Coach Petersen has b**** big enough to come in a dump truck.

2) Coach Petersen is a tremendous leader. He looks like he could run a marathon, then kick your you-know-what. I always like to see a coach that looks like he could get out there and play. When you are physically fit like him, it sends a message of discipline throughout your program.

3) Your players play with a passion and enthusiasm that is rarely seen. They play like they are not OWED something, but rather that they will take what they want. I love that attitude.

3) Your fan base never believed it wouldnt win. I saw the pep rally when the bowls were announced, and man-for-man-for-woman everyone in that gym thought you would win that game.

4) Coach Petersen might have been one of the few people to have outcoached Bob Stoops.

5) Your team looked as prepared and ready to play as any I have in bowl season in many, many years.

6) Oh yeah, Coach Petersen has b**** big enough to come in a dump truck.

Congrats again on your much deserved win! Enjoy it!

Re: Congrats from a UGA fan


Congrats guys!! That was probably THE best game I've seen live! So much heart and guts. After the INT you guys just picked yourselves up and played some of the most amazing football I've ever seen! The pitch back ran in for the TD into OT and the 2pt converstion statue of lib was just brilliant, gutsy, and awsome. THe Bronco Nation deserves all the respect in the world!!

Plus the proposal by Johnson afterwards made my fiance cry buckets, she was already chocked up from the amazing win and that just sent her over the edge.

Congrats again guys, just amazing!!!!!! Savor this win forever!!!
