    Who do you think will win and is it the same as who you WANT to win. There could be a difference in your answers.

    I THINK that Boise St. will win. Va Tech seems to not start off well, always be ranked too high and choke it up.

    I WANT Va Tech to win to shut the Boise St. chatter up. Then again, the more I am learning I am finding out they have been successful for some time. They have won in any division or conference they are in. It has been slow and it's not their fault they are not an old school team from way back when. They just win and find ways to do so. Maybe they are for real and it's their turn?

    I just want a fun game with no injuries.

    The Navy v. Maryland game is fun. This has been a good opening weekend, at least imho.

    Lose my what, my think or my want?
  4. i think we need V Tech to win. If Boise wins out it's them vs SEC for all the marbles and I don't think they play anyone after tonight.

    I want them to win, and I want to meet them in the championship game. I don't care if it's 'lose/lose'.

    I want Boise to look bad. So it will shut up the Boise MNC talk. But after how we looked it may not matter.

    That Navy-Maryland game was fun. I liked the coach's decision to go for the win at the goalline, but I'm not high on that Navy QB or his decision making. He missed a great game.

    As for the original topic, my head says Boise State will win because quarterback Kellen Moore is perhaps the country's best-kept secret.

    And though I hate rooting for Virginia Tech, my heart will be with the Hokies because this will probably be BSU's toughest test of the year. Meanwhile, VaTech has 11 more games for me to wish loss upon them.

    I do not think Va Tech will let you down as the season goes along. They will lose at least a game or two in the process.

    i want Va Tech to win, so we can avoid a Boise St vs TCU National Championship Game.

    try to find losses on Boise St or TCU schedule after tonight

    I think Boise wins tonight.

    Virginia Tech always seems to fail to live up to expectations.

    I'd like to see VT pull it off, but I just don't see it happening.

    lol at the 48% humidity being a concern for Boise State.

    I'd like to see them open the season against UH or Rice and get a dose of 75-90% humidity.

    I think the humidity is much lower than usual and the usual would be a concern for Boise. D.C. is overly humid as it is built into a swamp area and is close to the Bay. It's not quite to the level of Houston, Nawlins or Miami but it's not far from it. It get ****** there. That is what Boise was concerned with a bit, not what it is which sounds pretty nice.

    I hate this game. No matter which always-overrated team wins, it's all we're going to hear about.

    Oh Boi-se.

    Well, all Boise does is win at whatever game they have put in front of them (most of the time). They don't hype themselves the way the media does, they just line up and play. I do agree that Va Tech is annually overrated but hey, Boise St. does not rank 'em, they just play 'em.

    If they dominate this game and win going away I have no problem with them being ranked. Texas just has to take care of our games and our business. That said, c'mon Va Tech, get your **** together if you even have any to compile.

    Boise came to play and unlike some other overrated teams, they appear to be living up to their ranking. So far anyway.

    Pity Virginia Tech has not yet decided to participate. They've practically given Boise 10 points.

    I am beginning to hope that Va Tech is actually a 7-5 or 6-6 team waiting to happen... so that they drag Boise down in the computer rankings by season's end.

    (Sorry, but if you play the 96th-strongest schedule in the nation, as Boise did in 2009, you do not deserve to play for the national title.)

    I think that even if Va Tech does win this game they lose 3 to 4 games anyway. It's just how they roll. That may water down Boise State and their SOS at the end.

    Say what you want, Boise is a great team. They are very very well coached and they always play very very hard. They play with something to prove. They are a program that deserves respect at this point. They have accomplished as much as anyone in the country over the last 2-3 yrs (with the exception of a MNC only cause they haven't had the chance to play for one).

    Boise would beat a lot of teams from any conference in the country. They are for real and I just dont get why people want to hate on their hype. They deserve the hype. And they damn well play for a MNC this year and if they do whoever the opponent is would be wise as to not overlook them

    I don't have a dog in this hunt and I'm not pulling for VT just because Boise is ahead of us in the polls. I do love that aggressive D line for Boise St. though.
