Happy Monday! Here are two topics to discuss this lovely fall day:
It took four overtimes, but Boise State beat Nevada 69-67 Sunday night in the highest-scoring game in NCAA Division I history. To me, this one rivaled the Fiesta Bowl for gut-wrenching excitement, especially considering that the Broncos were 26-point favorites. The Broncos may not go to a BCS game this year, but they're providing plenty of thrills nonetheless. Let's hope the defense works extra hard this week to make up for not showing up last night (except Tim Brady, who made the play of the game in the 4th OT by finally stopping amazing Wolf Pack freshman quarterback Colin Kaepernick).
Dan Popkey's Sunday column focused on how Jim Risch is a dinosaur who doesn't even do e-mail. By contrast, Larry LaRocco is hip to the web, posting videos on YouTube and live blogging. Risch calls it a generational thing, but he's only three years older than LaRocco. I call it an engagement thing.
