   I don't know about you guys, but I would feel good in taking Boise St. to beat any team in division one on a neutral field.
   I think Oregon has really impressed so far, and this is a new season, but Boise beat Oregon the last two seasons in a row with a lot of the same players. (excluding the QB position of course)
   I also would take Boise over the Buckeyes. I just feel Boise has more weapons and Pryor still struggles against good defenses. I believe Boise would shut Mr. Pryor down..
   Kellen Moore would be able to put up points on the green Bama secondary while the defense would shut down the Bama bread and butter running game...
  If there ever was a year for Boise to get it's shot, this should be it..they are the best team in college football, despite coming from the WAC. While not likely, I do think they would be capable of going undefeated even in a conference like the SEC...

Agreed. Boise State should be #1. Hands down best QB in the country. Their receivers are amazing. Offensive line is plays TOUGH. And defense never quits.

Let's just put Boise in the Pac-10 and see how their record turns out. They would not be undefeated for damn sure. How would you feel planning around USC, Standford, Oregon, Arizona, even Arizona St. or Oregeon St. are tough match-ups. They play a cupcake schedule and you're already calling them BCS NC contenders? No way they make it through a tough conference schedule like the Pac-10 or SEC, darn even the Big 10 is tough.

   Expect for Oregon, I think Boise would beat every other team in the PAC-10 without much difficulty....You could make a case that the PAC 10 defense is just as bad as the WAC Conference...Nobody stops anybody in the conference, and Boise would win it relatively easily in my opinion...

I agree... and Boise has beat Oregon two years in a row.

Give it to Boise for a chance... just one year... if they lose we don't have to let them back in again.

Teams from major conferences are too scared to play Boise, 

Boise is lucky VA Tech agreed to play that game... if VT didn't lost to James Madison the next week.  We may not even be having this conversation because Boise could be #2 in the country.  There is no return game of that VT game... one time deal and they had to come to DC to play it.

If Boise could play teams like Ohio St, Nebraska, and Bama in the regular reason they would do it in a heartbeat.

VT will be back in the top 25 in a week or 2. I hope they get in to the title game

i know what my eyes tell me, and they tell me that Boise is the best team in football... they are physical, have an explosive offense and a hard-hitting defense... not to mention a genius head coach...

i would take them around a pick'em against any team i've seen this year...

I don't think they belong in the title game just yet.  Wait for the others to fall then yes.  I would love to seem them sqeak past Oregon which they would.  This trickeration hype train crap needs to end because they haven't done anything cool this season.

Boise would lose to about 10-15 teams in the country on neutral field, and most of those games would not be competitive.  Every team they would face would pretty much have superior talent across the board.

What Boise has going for them is experience and coaching.  Both of those are huge factors, but it would not be enough against top teir teams.  Anyone who watch the Virginia Tech game could see that the Hokies should have won that game by 2 TDs, and if they played again today they would get beat by that much.

Boise had to do almost nothing on their own to jump out to a 17-0 lead in the first quarter.  Those points came solely on unforced errors by Tech (not anything Boise did).  They also got the benefit of 40 yards of field position on their game-winning drive on two absolutely ridiculous calls by the refs. So the Tech does not show why they should be in the title game, it shows why they should not.

In the SEC alone there are probably 7 teams that Boise would not beat, and if Boise had to play the other 5 bottom teams they might go 3 & 2.

So just in the SEC alone they would be no better than the 8th best team in the conference.

They also would not be a top team in the Big 10, Big 12 or the PAC 10 or the ACC.  I think they would have a fighting chance in the Big Least however.

The bottom line is that beating Virginia Tech in no way qualifies them for a shot at the title, no more than it qualified Bama last season when they completely dominated Tech in the first game of the season.  Any suggestion to the contrary is patently absurd.

Unreal. Hands down you are the dumbest poster here. It would take too many words to point out how incorrect you are. Just stop posting, thanks.

Boise is a very good team.  Probably top 10.  I don't think they belong in the top 5, or in the title game playing their schedule.  They would definitely lose at least two games if they had to run the gauntlet in a real conference. If they had to play the 3 game stretch Bama just did for instance, I would be shocked to see them come out 3-0, and wouldn't be surprised to see them 1-2.

I have watched several Boise games the last couple of years, and they are not invincible.  They do have down games just like any team, but they always come against garbage opponents that can't take advantage, like Tulsa and La Tech last year.  Like some people say, it's a lot easier when you only have to get up for one or two real games.

Everyone knows they are one of the top three teams in the country, yet this discussion still goes on week in and out. Everyone one who follows CFB also knows it's almost impossible to beat a team who has a ballet troupe for a motivational speaker(s).

Well lets see if you can muster just one rational point.

So by your first paragraph, you say 10-15 teams can beat Boise quite easily. Can you seriously say this with a stright face?

Bosie beat Oregon the last two years, in 08 and 09. Boise is straight the better team then Oregon. The facts were left on the field for all of us to see. By the statement I just made puts Boise automatically in the top 2 in the PAC 10.

So here I ask, there are 15-20 teams in the country better then Boise?

Not to mention they beat an TCU last year which I believe was ranked 4th in the nation at that time. So the AP top 25 and coach's poll are that far off? Are they really that clueless in analyzling teams? Just wondering..........

Can we get off that argument of putting them in another conference and see how they do? They arent in another conference so dont automatically eliminate them.. Heres the problem with college footballs. Basically your saying they cant go unbeaten in another conference. You SHOULDNT have to go unbeaten. You dont have to be an undefeated team to prove your the best team in football. Did butler go unbeaten last year in college basketball? No but they have a TOURNAMENT. Boise can still be the best team even if they lost a game or 2 in the pac 10 or sec
