Daily Bullets (June 9)

West Meets Southwest

So it’s a little fringey but OSU taking on Boise State is one of the top first-ever matchups of the 2018 season.

4. Boise State at Oklahoma State (Saturday, Sept. 15)

Though not a Power vs. Power matchup, Boise State-Oklahoma State ought to be one of the best non- conference games of the year. Though the Cowboys are known for their potent passing attack (No. 1 in the FBS in 2017), they are retooling after losing their starting quarterback and top two receivers. That’s not the case for Boise State, who brings back quarterback Brett Rypien and two of his top four targets. It’s a potential mismatch vs. an Oklahoma State secondary that finished last season ranked No. 117 in the FBS in passing defense. [FBS Schedules]

Three things: 1) Woof – that passing defense ranking has some bite to it, 2) Boise-OSU is the perfect matchup of teams capable of snake-biting great teams and 3) what a test for the new defensive system against a veteran quarterback with an NFL pedigree.

Jumbotron Update

Bobby A. brought an update on the new jumbotron and interviewed the manufacturer about a unique element of the Cowboy version.
Even the manufacturer of the board, Daktronics, and their people are amazed at how this board will set up with it’s location.

“The recent trend is that video boards in college football stadiums are getting bigger and bigger, but what sets this particular one apart is the fact that it’s so close to the field,” said Daktronics’ Perry Grave. “This board is not on top of the upper deck, far away from the action. It’s much closer. The quality of the board, combined with its proximity to the field will give fans a much larger, brighter and better picture.” [GoPokes]

And that’s a super interesting element – the screen being so close to the ground and not high atop the stadium.
