...great pic of #44 Gingg showing his warrior spirit ( as well as the old school, blue collar mentality of the oft-overlooked prototypical BSU football player). Pic courtesy of the Idaho Statesman
Kid N' Play admirer, #8 George Iloka, had some big plays last night .....quite possibly the best hit on a key first half third down pass play where Iloka made contact ( great timing), as the receiver( #1 below) tried to pull down the ball.

For the #69 Hout fans.....utilizing his redshirt year.
These defensive players would end up punishing Bowling Green and making the difference over the duration of the game. Props to the defense for shutting down the spread offense that caused so many problems last year. See the Nevada game 2007.

HIT OF THE WEEK
The prediction from yesterday's crystal ball was precise with Anthony Turner getting knocked out ( but B Thompson came up and made the stick vs the predicted Jeron Johnson). +1 for this blogger.

Anybody else thought that IJ was going to go all "Tyler Shoemaker" and stiff arm the safety, and end up scoring on this first half run play. Would the IJ from 2006 scored on this play?
Close runner up for hit of the game .....Unknown BSU player rocks #35 and lays him out silly. The hit comes about 14-15 seconds in on the clip on the left hand side ( watch the wall on the punt return).
