    Not many upsets so far -- Cal over UNC and Maryland over Texas are about it.

    USC looked amazing on their first drive against WMU. Since then? Not so hot. Tied at 14 at half.

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    You do know I'm in Texas, right? I'm watching it on the PAC 12 network as I type.

    Just finished watching the Boise State game. Their kick and punt return teams served them very well today, including a punt return for a TD.

    Rypien got replaced mid-game with a mobile QB who transferred from Kansas. Whenever he came in, the Troy run defense, having to account for another rusher, seemed to soften, allowing for BSU's running backs to perform better.

    There was a crazy play near the end zone. Troy threw to the sideline and the CB jumped the route, nearly intercepting it for what could easily have been a 90-yard pick-6. Instead, he tipped it up and fell down, allowing the Troy receiver to catch it and run toward the end zone where it looked like he would score a TD. But another BSU defender arrived and punched the ball out of his hands just before he crossed the goal line. After the review, they decided the ball went out through the end zone, so they awarded a touchback to Boise State. Wild play.

    UCLA looks almost as bad as we do against an SEC team, of course they have made it past midfield and even scored.

    Well, with that, they are looking a lot better. Too little too late, it would seem.

    Pretty sure a lot of UCLA fans turned this game off or left the stadium. Crazy.

    This is the closest I've seen the Rose Bowl to being full for a regular season UCLA game; still about 20K seats short of a sell out.

    How's the air quality in Provo this week? This article talks about potential game postponements and/or venue changes in Oregon and Washington because of the poor air quality from all the smoke.

    http://www.idahostatesman.com/sports...171442007.html

    Here in Idaho, the school district cancelled all outdoor extracurricular activities yesterday and are likely to do the same today. Looking atthe 10-day forecast, there's no precipitation expected for a while.

    This morning the air looked the worst it has looked all summer with an orange sun, but the air quality isn't that bad currently.

    This has been our forecast for the last week. We usually only get this on April 20th. I think the entire state is on fire.

    I feel for those poor Oregonians that don't have AC, because it only gets hot like this a few days a year. Actually, I have nothing but contempt for the Oregonians that are BYU fans and experiencing this heat. Those people deserve it and probably are the cause of the poor suffering Oregonians.

    I wonder if medical/recreational marijuana helps endure the heat?
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    In another dimension all those BYU fans are die hard Utes and suffering just as much. I doubt you thought about that.

    As expected, got this email from the school district this afternoon:

    Parents/Guardians:
    Currently, the air quality index reading is 209, putting the air quality in the "purple" category. All outdoor after school programs are cancelled today, Wednesday, September 6, 2017.
    I don't see any reprieve in the forecast.

    I think Bronco's players are getting more comfortable in his defense. Virginia has looked good against an Indiana offense that moved the ball a bit against Ohio Stste last week.

    And then Virginia gives up two touchdowns.

    LOL@PAC-whatever... The nanny conference:

    Pac-12 penalizes field storming with monetary damages

    The conference fines institutions $25,000 for the first offense
    WSU fought back from 21 points down in the final quarter of a game against Boise State on Saturday night. The fans — which were at one point silent — regained hope as they watched the Cougars force overtime at Martin Stadium.


    The first and second round of overtime ended in a tie, but the third finished the game. A walk-off touchdown sent the crowd in a frenzy. Rushing the field was almost inevitable after the Cougs’ lowest win probability was 0.4 percent, according to ESPN.


    Students and alumni hopped the rails, running toward the middle of the field. In a matter of minutes, the bleachers emptied onto the turf like water through an open floodgate.


    The Pac-12 Conference Council monetarily punishes institutions following field storming. These fines double from the initial offense of $25,000 to the highest offense of $100,000.

    Presidents and chancellors of schools in the Pac-12 approved sanctions last year to enhance post-game safety. California Athletic Director Mike Williams was one of the advocates for this new policy.
