    Boise State vs Idaho

    Just read this article and I have to agree with him completely. Boise State is getting way too full of them selves.

    Re: Boise State vs Idaho

    I have always wanted to do a home and home with the Vandals since playing against them on NCAA 2010 on XBOX. The Kibbie Dome looks like a dump and my friend and I always joked about a road trip there. Anyways screw Boise!

    Nobody will ever respect Boise until they remove the Smurf Turf.

    Re: Boise State vs Idaho

    I don't dislike Boise State and I think they've built up a hell of a program. If they end up playing in the BCS Championship game this upcoming season against a traditional power, I'll cheer for them.

    With that being said, the Staples article is spot on. Plus, I get a kick out of Idaho's coach, Robb Akey, a true character if there ever was one.

    After reading your post I went and played at Idaho on NCAA 2011...you're right, the Kibbie Dome is hilarious

    Re: Boise State vs Idaho

    I think the article is about to make a good point, but I'm stuck on his "hook-and-lateral" sentence.

    It's hook-and-ladder.

    I'm not budging on that one, no matter how often "hook-and-lateral" is used on ESPN. (At the very least, they should have to concede in exchange for for continuing to use "trickeration" 20 years after it was clever that first time).

    OK, I got that out of my system. I'll return to the article, already in progress.

    I don't deny that "lateral" would be a more descriptive word for the play. (Although "lateral" means "to the side," and technically it'd have to be clearly backward, but I digress). And eventually, hook-and-lateral will become the accepted term (if it hasn't already).

    But I doubt that it became lateral instead of "ladder" because someone thought it made more sense or was more accurate. I suspect enough sports analysts simply mispoke and didn't realize they were misnaming it ... and it was perpetuated.
