If Boise State Loses To Virginia Tech in Showdown, Kiss Title Hopes Goodbye

There were ultimate emotions as of recently, a moment when Boise State were darlings and cuddly like stuff animals, described as the cutest story in college football for a breathtaking ending in the Fiesta Bowl three years ago.

Yet it seems so long ago, at the threshold of another unpredictable season, doesn’t anybody recall the miraculous storybook season?

This game, of course, is stained with apathy and favoritism, sadly forgetting an event deemed arguably the greatest bowl game in history.

As we despise the Broncos, upon an attempt in a magical pursuit, a nice story has been erased on a night Boise awed spectators and executed the unanticipated trickery.

In this instant, unless someone has amnesia, everyone remember when the Broncos beat Oklahoma with the Statue of Liberty, a gutsy strategy that simplified consideration and fostered the popularity of a defenseless program.

It happened at a time Boise was one of the nation’s most beloved programs, to increasingly elevate its expectations and greatly embrace all conversations of emerging as a powerhouse and minimize the unpredictability in a mediocre conference, one particularly victimized of BCS fraud.

The significance of what is at stake in a promising season now that Boise’s schedule isn’t nearly as fearful or grueling as the well-known conferences is convincing enough to elevate respectability.

What is supposed to be the game of the week is the game of implications for Boise State, ready to encounter its stiffest test of the season against No. 10 Virginia Tech, a Labor Day showdown in a neutral site.

If Boise beats the Hokies in a crucial, must-needed contest to likely prove worthy of a national title, the Broncos certainly bids for the national title game this season, given the favorable schedule.

The darlings of football will be the villains as BCS-busters, but you certainly cannot fault the Broncos instead hold a grudge towards inevitably an unsound formula, a system plenty of fans, many of whom adore football, don’t stomach too well.

The resentment in the sport is utterly ridiculous, considering that this is the most popular sport in the country, a game the fanatics admire because of the action-packed, drama it provides.

The antipathy at Boise is egregious. For years, the problem is a delicate and inaccurate formula, which hopelessly manipulates a smaller and unpopular program’s fortune to doom the ferocious, powerful, hungrier Boise State, a football program with precocious experience, capacity, and talent.

These Broncos are poised and believe they are just as deep as any team and can roughly be crowned national champs as a way to silence all critics and naysayers.

More importantly, with 21 of 22 starters returning from a 13-0 team, Boise is favorable in winning the Western Athletic Conference, where the Broncos have won 64 of its last 66 games, thrashing powerless opponents to simply win a cupcake matchup in a weakened conference.

The ramifications are massive in Monday night’s meeting at FedEx Field.

It’s an excellent football program, but the projections of riding to the national championship is meaningless if the Broncos falls in a heartbreaker, and lastly, shed tears and kiss national title hopes goodbye.

For years now, the propaganda in football disintegrated sentimental hopes for mostly smaller universities.

It’s almost fascinating the unworthiness of Boise State illustrates absolute disregard and bigotry, to an amusing football team that has been ridiculed and teased even in the midst of resiliency.

Even if the Broncos comprise of compelling elements for assembling successive runs of unbeaten seasons, Boise still is objectively underestimated and disrespected.

By enduring the disappointment of prevailing on the national stage all while earning the nod to play in the Fiesta Bowl, the disoriented formula unfortunately withheld the magnitude of possibly defying logic on the biggest platform.

If nothing else, Boise is pressured to at least beat Virginia Tech, a stellar team with a prolific rushing tandem of Darren Evans and Ryan Williams, all whom can attack early to lessen the Broncos’ fiery mentality.

Even if the BCS is simplistic and awry, Boise is famous because of the system's heartwarming recognition.

In perspective, cynics are unfairly judging the Broncos’ worthiness of a national title, hoopla relentlessly transforming the personality of the game.

Now that the BCS is a chaotic standard, the folks are bickering over its team’s rankings in the polls, agitated by the results nationally released.

The ultimate feeling is that the Broncos could be a high-profile program playing against another premier school for the national title. It’s very possible.

All of this is hard to envision as long as there is an unfounded system that immeasurably smeared the Broncos a fitted opportunity to validate its worthiness and endure no doubt the idealistic moment in school history.

The fact is, there is much hypocrisy for excluding and rejecting Boise without even acknowledging three perfect seasons when the Broncos had salient unbeaten seasons, which of course, on three consecutive undefeated regular-seasons, none of those moments were acceptable to qualify for a title game.

Unfortunately, Boise plays in a conference that is harmless.

Eternally, the Broncos are unproven until the NCAA folks implement an eight-team playoff system or rely on a consensus theory to give each team, in fairness, an opportunity to contend at the highest level.

But this is a must-win to keep national title hopes alive. In spite of an effortless schedule, Virginia Tech is, by far, the toughest challenge.

The good news is the Broncos are lethal and favorable with the exception of junior quarterback Kellen Moore, a Heisman candidate this season who is anointed in the state and lauded for his efficiency and precision to pilot a title contender.

When he was a true freshman, Moore set an NCAA record and completed 69.4 percent of his passes.

As expected, he has the experience and components of a quarterback to have an encore with the best touchdown ratio in the nation and pass attempts, a feat he accomplished last season.

Earlier in the summer, Chris Petersen, the coach of Boise said, “Let’s prove everybody right,” Petersen told his team back in August.

The point here is that he’s trying to motivate his players as a fiery coach by offering his strategic motive, while the Broncos try to protect BCS righteousness.

A common suggestion now is to beat the Hokies—or else…
