Why are any of you suprised by this revelation. Boise St has always played FCS schools. In 2009 the 14-0 Broncos played FCS UC Davis. In 08 against Idaho St, Weber St in 07, CS Sacramento in 06 and Portland St in 05. I do find it funny that Boise St fans are always on here complaining about how all the big schools practice this and actully have the nerve to get defensive when their team is found guilty of the same thing. Boise St is one of the biggest offenders of this practice.

I've said it a million times....if Boise wants big time teams to schedule home and homes with them.....they need to get a bigger stadium, no one wants to travel to nowhere Idaho to play in a 37,000 seat stadium and likely lose money.And you'd be wrong a million times. No one loses a dime in a home and home series. Each team keeps its gate and pays the expenses plus a small fee (usually 250k or so) to the other team. A bigger stadium would mean a bigger home take, but neither side "loses money." The reasons that the bigs won't travel is not that they'd lose money, they wouldn't.
No, if they can find some dumb patsie willing to play them at home and politely lose by four touchdowns, far better that than a trip anywhere
How about your team giving up one of those home games and doing a home and home with Boise? I didn't think so.
