TU supporters had to have a bad feeling early in the matchup with Boise on Wednesday night. No room to run, no time to throw, no momentum to be found.
Tulsa fought to the end, scaring the Broncos before losing 28-21. The things that resonated at Chapman Stadium were these:
1) TU knew how to take advantage of Boise mistakes
2) GJ Kinne had no time to throw
3) When Kinne had time, he sometimes took too long to throw
4) The most dangerous player on the field was TU's Damaris Johnson- by far
5) The inability to convert the last 4th down play in both halves cost the Hurricane dearly
6) Boise was very, very beatable
Now, nationally, the argument goes something like this:
"Boise State isn't the 5th best team in the nation. If they run the table, the BCS National Championship game should include (unbeaten Florida or Alabama) against (insert favorite 1-loss BCS conference team here)."
Funny, but TU just helped bust a BCS buster. And still lost.
