    At least he's not Riley Nelson

    Say what you will about Steele Jantz, but things could be worse. Four picks thrown tonight by Riley Nelson of BYU against Boise State. Three picks in or near the red zone. WOW.

    Plus a BYU fumble on their own one.

    Couldn't help but think of ISU and come to the realization that things could always be worse.

    Yeah, he has been horrible, and has not looked great the other times I have seen him either.

    I still have to pull for BYU, hoping that knocks boise off of top 25 and moves us that much closer.

    And they are still only down 0-7?

    I hadn't thought about that. But BYU was ranked before losing to Utah last week IIRC. They would probably slide back in.

    Neither one of these teams are any good. Defenses are solid but offenses are anemic

    Re: At least he's not Riley Nelson

    Both teams ******* ********. Boise doesn't kick field goals from the 20 and the 1 yard line, and now BYU goes for 2 instead of tying up the game. Neither team deserves to win this shitfest.

    Dumb, dumb, dumb. Your D has been playing well all night and you have no timeouts left. Just play for OT and take your chances

    Re: At least he's not Riley Nelson

    The fact that Boise St. is ranked 24th in the country is an abomination.

    I agree that both of these teams are relatively unimpressive. And, concerning rankings, neither team is all that deserving. With a non-BCS conference schedule like Boise's, they should need to go undefeated to stay relevant nationally (and they've already lost to MSU and aren't rolling BYU by any means tonight). The same goes for BYU, who has already lost a game and is struggling tonight. I know they're independent and all, but I hope it's apparent to most that they're not at that top level, and their overall record at the end of the year should reflect that. Neither are a top 25 team, IMO.

    Agreed. Especially when their kicker sucks. High chance of getting to OT (no FG for the win) and the odds are in their favor in OT.

    If i were a voter i certainly wouldnt put Boise State in my top 25 after this awful game.

    Re: At least he's not Riley Nelson

    Neither one of these teams should be anywhere near the top 25. Both have terrible offenses. Boise is beginning the long slide back to irrelevancy.

    The past couple years, Boise's sh*tty schedule has hurt them...this year they should feel fortunate they don't play anybody after September. Their offense is god awful.

    BYU has games with Utah State, Oregon State, Notre Dame and GT coming up. They will be lucky to get a split out of those 4
