CoachingCan someone explain to me how Boise does it? I truly don't understand.
Why can't we be Oklahoma st? We can be just as good as any one in the country. Don't know why so many in Syracuse have such negative attitudes. We have in the past and will have again in the very near future a very good football program. We will be good this year
T. Boone Pickens and a boatload of oil money.
I also know why we aren't Oregon or Oklahoma State and never will be.
Why can't we be Boise State?
SU has a T. Boone Pickens...but his name is Al Davis and he chose to spend his money on the Raiders instead of his alma mater.
We could be Boise State if we lowered admissions standards and cheated by violating NCAA rules.
It was reported on 6/10/11 by the AP that Boise State officials met with the NCAA regarding being charged with a lack of institutional control, among 22 charges the school is facing for numerous violations by five sports, including football. Then on 8/11/11 they fired their Athletic Director Gene Bleymaier, who since 1982 was the person who was the mastermind behind the blue turf at Bronco Stadium, and who brought Boise St. from small school status to national contender in football; in addition to a lack of institutional control it is alleged that they provided impermissible transportation, housing and meals benefits for incoming football recruits. They won a big game today but if the allegations are upheld I suspect they will be paying for a long time. I would rather avoid the embarrassment of being from a school that cheats - even if we have to go through a rebuilding process periodically.
No program is perfect - but there are epic cheaters, and there are slimy dirbag cheaters, and there are dumber cheaters who get caught. Looks like Boise State's low academic standards are also reflected in the stupidity of their AD in getting caught.Yeah because I'm sure Syracuse has never done anything like that. Get real people, this is D1 football. If you ain't cheatin, you ain't tryin.
They get players.
Boise State has no - no - academic standards. They get anybody they need into school.
This. Texas/Oklahoma players are so much better than anyone in our natural recruiting base it's absurd.Also, Oklahoma and Texas recruits >>> Jersey and NY recruits.
