Just saw the Gameday crew talk about Boise St., and while I agree that they should not play for the BCS title, Desmond made a statement that really bugs me. He said that Boise needs to start scheduling big-name teams on the road, like Texas and Florida. What drives me crazy about that statement is that I am sure Boise has sought out those type of match-ups, but most good teams never want to take a chance with an early-season loss, especially against a non-BCS team. Sure, you get the random Houston-Ok St. or BYU-Oklahoma, but for the most part teams do not want to suffer a OOC loss, especially at home. I do think that Boise St. does not deserve to be ranked #5 because their own marquee win will be against Oregon, but to insinuate that they are not trying to create a better resume every year is just lazy journalism.
