For the second straight season, Boise State's football team begins the season ranked among the top 10 in the country with a No. 7 selection in the USA Today Coaches Preseason Poll released this morning (Aug. 4).

Oklahoma begins the 2011 season in the No. 1 spot followed by Alabama, Oregon, LSU, Florida State, Stanford and Boise State. 

The Broncos started last season at No. 5 in the coaches' poll, the highest preseason ranking in school history, before ending the season at No. 7 with a 12-1 overall record and a victory in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.

Broncos are the favorite for 2011 Mountain West title

W00t! BSU is their new conference this season. I am anticipating another year of white knuckles and table dancing.

Boise State enters its first season in the Mountain West as the favorite to win the 2011 football title, the league announced today at its annual Media Days being held at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas. The Broncos garnered 28 first-place votes, and earned a total of 236 points in a poll of media members. Boise State posted a 12-1 overall mark in 2010, en route to Top 10 rankings in the final USA Today Coaches' (7) and Associated Press (10) polls.

The Broncos return six starters from an offensive unit that ranked second in the nation last year in both total offense (521.3 yards per game) and points per game (45.1). Seven starters return for the Boise State defense, which ranked second nationally in both total defense (254.7 ypg) and points allowed (12.8 ppg). The Broncos are led by preseason all-MW performers Thomas Byrd (OL), George Iloka (DB), Doug Martin (RB), Shea McClellin (DL), Kellen Moore (QB), Nate Porter (OL), Billy Winn (DL).

Boise State players continue to show up on pre-season watch lists

. Kellen Moore and Doug Martin are the latest of nine Broncos on various lists.

Preseason football awards watch lists to the 2011 season continue to be released and Boise State players continue to be named to those lists.

In recent announcements, quarterback  has been named to the Davey O'Brien and Walter Camp award watch lists, while running back  was named to the Doak Walker award watch list. 

The Davey O'Brien award is presented to the nation's most outstanding quarterback, while the Walter Camp award is presented each year to the most outstanding player in college football.  The Doak Walker award is presented to the nation's most outstanding running back.

Moore was a finalist for both the Davey O'Brien and Walter Camp awards last season, which were won by 2011 Heisman Trophy award winning Cam Newton of Auburn. 

Moore and Martin have also been named to the watch list for the Maxwell award which is presented to the nation's most outstanding all-around player.

Greedy woman steals baseball from child

Really? .

During a game between the Astros and the Diamondbacks at Minute Maid Park, a player tossed a baseball to a little girl in the stands. An awful woman standing next to her reached in front of her for a failed attempt at a catch. The girl caught it, but the greedy woman ripped it from her.

The disgusting woman then turned to her group to show off her baseball and gave high fives while the little girl walked away heartbroken.

In this 20-second video, you’ll hear a guy shouting at the TV because he thinks this woman is awful, too. He decides her name is ‘Pam’.

Check out ‘Pam’ looking like the world’s biggest jerk:

Boise State Broncos picked to top the Mountain West

It has  been a while since I've posted any football goodies. I probably should have when . Incidentally, that's pretty sweet considering all the shuffling of staff, players, and conferences.

Speaking of conferences, here is a nice writeup at that has Boise State beating all in the Mountain West.

The Boise State Broncos lose quite a bit of skill to graduation, but they still have plenty in the fold. Heisman candidate senior quarterback Kellen Moore is coming off a fantastic season in which he tossed 35 TD to just six INT. He no longer has draft picks Titus Young and Austin Pettis to throw to, but tailback Doug Martin, WR Tyler Shoemaker and TE Kyle Efaw are ready to fill the holes created in the offense. 

The Broncos will have more competition as they move to the Mountain West, but conference champion TCU is likely to return from last year's heights.

Ahhh, not much longer before things really start rolling.

GO BRONCOS!
