Ready for the Boise State Game
Well, the Boise State Broncos faced the Washington Huskies in their bowl game–there was a huge story behind this match up. I don’t know if I can do this justice in a few short sentences. I will make it brief–Coach Pete was in Boise before joining the Washington Huskies (Pac 12 Team). He is still beloved as well as celebrated in Boise. If the Broncos had to lose a game on the big stage, at least it was to Coach Pete.
Coach Harsen (was on staff with Coach Pete while he was in Boise)–during the phenomenal 2007 Fiesta Bowl upset–it is considered of the games of the century. We follow both teams (Boise State and Washington), but when we must choose, we are going with the Broncos. On this particular night, our beloved Broncos went down to the better (under-rated) Washington State Husky team. Of course, the players wanted this win for the retiring Coach Pete and to set the stage for the next chapter with their new coach. It was an impressive performance.
It is the last game of the season and the last chance for Stackhouse to wear his Blue Boise State Tee. He enjoys these events, but as they go, this was disappointing–because it was extremely low-scoring. He gets a football toss when the Broncos score.
