A team in college football that annually beats up soft teams and demands to play in the National Championship game. Boise State often plays teams like Wyoming, New Mexico State, Louisiana Tech, Utah State, and San Jose State. They insist that they deserve to play for a national championship even though their schedule has sometimes consisted of zero ranked teams. In 2010 Boise State may steal a BCS bowl berth from teams such as Alabama, Nebraska, and Ohio State that play nearly half their games against ranked opponents (examples of teams from their respective schedule's include Texas, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, Auburn, LSU, Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma, Miami, and Penn State). Boise State is also known for their large population of bandwagon fans.
Boise State believes that they should play for a national championship after feasting on a bunch of D-2 quality opponents over teams that play and defeat multiple ranked national powerhouses.
Boise State playing in a BCS bowl is like hiring a Community College graduate with a 4.0 GPA over hiring a Harvard or Yale graduate with a 3.97 GPA.
