Well, now we have a big mess on our hands. Or, at least, we probably will after Boise State rallied with this final drive to edge Virginia Tech 33-30 in the season opener last night.
The Broncos, perennial Cinderellas, came in ranked #3 and this promised to be far and away their most difficult game on the schedule.
So, thanks to Kellen Moore, Austin Pettis and Doug Martin, we'll be privy to the "do they-don't they deserve to be in the national title game" debate -- barring a stumble along the way.
There's no denying that Boise State is a talented, cohesive and gritty team. Moore is a legitimate star and calling the Broncos upstarts isn't really accurate anymore. Still, a cream-puffy schedule just doesn't care the same gravitas as those played by the "big boys" in the power conferences.
Admittedly, it's early. But why not ask? If Boise State wins out, do you see them playing for the title? More importantly, should they?
