The Boise State sports blog One Bronco Nation Under God is the absolute worst. I’ve long wanted to hate Boise fans with the kind of spiteful passion we once reserved for BYU fans. But OBNUG’s team of affable and good-humored bloggers and commenters have led me to conclude that a non-insignificant portion of the Broncos fanbase is actually … kind of OK?
As thoughtful people do, OBNUGgie Russ Wood reached out this week to do another Q&A exchange and blog bet where the winner get’s a free post on the loser’s blog. So, uh, you might want to check this space next week to see what Russ cooks up. In the meantime, he kindly answered our most pressing Boise State questions.
When I first started writing about the Aztecs in 2011, the Mountain West Conference blogosphere was a sad, dark place. One bright beacon in the wilderness was One Bronco Nation Under God, a group of pretty cool, funny dudes who probably all smell like criss-cut French fries in real life.
I could write my own lengthy, in-depth article on San Diego State football recruiting, honest! My insights into recruiting in general and the Class of 2018 in particular include, but are not limited to, the following facts:
SDSU is hot on the trail of top tier talent
Children are our future
Several of these recruits were born after the Baha Men released the smash hit “Who Let the Dogs Out?”
My god I’m getting old
Recruiting is the *true* Game of Thrones
But on the unlikely chance you wanted to know even more about Aztecs recruiting, I went ahead and tracked down Ruben Meza from Rivals.com. Ruben publishes the AztecSportsReport, which you should definitely subscribe to. Before you do, enjoy this Q&A on how SDSU’s class is shaping up and the factors leading to this early success – as well as an update on Ruben’s car troubles.
As Aztecs fans, I think we’re all feeling pretty confident about Saturday’s game against Cal (hyperventilates into paper bag). But how are our frenemies at the University of California at Berkeley feeling about this? For answers we turned to Nick Kranz and Berkelium97 from California Golden Blogs to get their take on the game, SDSU’s chances of Pac-12 membership (SPOILER: NOT GOOD) and who has better burritos.
From time to time, Kabeer Thirty sits down with SDSU luminaries to leach off their popularity and garner cheap web hitsgive you the inside scoop on these important Aztecs. Today we chat with comedy writer and former relief pitcher Justin Halpern. You may know Justin from “Shit My Dad Says,” but do you know which MWC city he considers a ‘shit hole?’ Keep reading for this and other shocking revelations!
