Game one is in the books. 49-7 win for the Broncos. I predicted a 42-10 final so I wasn’t too far off. Here are my observations from the game.
First impressions on the Stuekle Sky Suites… Wow. Very impressive looking. In fact, the whole west side just looks real real nice. That thing is definitely big time. I would LOVE to see a game from there, but that may have to wait a year or 20. Maybe someday I’ll have the bankroll to do something nutty like that. But, I will say, sitting on the east side and looking at that thing, it really is a sight to behold. Also, I gotta give the people in those suites and club seats props… even though they were in the high-dollar area, most of them were still rocking the blue and orange gear. I didn’t see many suits or anything through my binos.
As an aside, I’m sure I’ve made this point before but I’m going to make it again. The number of people wearing Bronco gear to games is just astounding. I vividly remember years ago when maybe 20% of the people actually had something on that read “Boise State” or “BSU”. Now? I’d guess we’re at about 90-95% saturation. I absolutely love it. Once again, big props to the athletic department and that new logo they rolled out.
