You almost feel bad for Kellen Moore.
He is still one of the most accurate passers in the nation (76.3 completion percentage, second in the FBS), ranks fourth in terms for QB rating (180.72), tied for first with 24 touchdown passes and is just one win from the all-time FBS mark for wins by a starting quarterback.
But yet, he's not getting the type of press you'd expect from a player with his skill and accomplishments.
He may not be a quarterback of a BCS-AQ program, but Boise State gets plenty of ink, far more than many AQ programs.
So why is he so overlooked?
This season, No. 4 Boise State just isn't stacked with the showtime receivers as in years past, and Moore has had to spread the ball around while relying on more traditional-yardage plays. Gone are the days of the 60-yard bomb to Titus Young or the 45-yard slant to Austin Pettis. Both of those Broncos greats now practice their trade in the NFL.
Additionally, there's the specter of yet again missing out on the BCS Championship Game combined with the expectation of an undefeated season.
In the end, the question is whether or not something is exciting if it's expected.
