The 2011 Boise State – Georgia Hype Video Is Probably the Best Frump’s Ever Seen…

August 19, 2011

In the interest of full disclosure, it’s also probably the only “hype” video Frump’s ever seen, but that fact doesn’t necessarily detract from its quality.

Indeed, this “neutral site” game in Atlanta’s Georgia dome is one of the marquee match ups of the 2011 College Football season’s opening weekend, so I guess the above theatrics are somewhat warranted. Notwithstanding the ever rising temperature of Georgia coach Mark Richt’s hot seat, the fact that the Broncos must win in order to preserve any realistic shot at a BCS Title berth means there’s plenty of savory plot lines to keep even the most casual of fans entertained. The start of Boise State QB Kellen Moore’s 2011 Heisman campaign is just gravy.

Right now most oddsmakers have the spread set at Boise State -3, Over/Under 52, which suggests this game will be a far cry from the teams’ last meeting in Athens back on September 3rd, 2005. The Dawgs dominated — despite the reservations of most “experts” — a clearly outmatched Boise team in Athens 48-13 back then, but a lot has changed over the past six years, and UGA fans would be foolish to expect a similar result on the 6th anniversary of that previous beat down.

That said, I don’t think it’s at all unreasonable for the Georgia faithful to expect a win, and there’ll be no surprises if this one to comes down to the last few possessions. The bigger surprise may very well come in the form of Georgia Sophomore QB Aaron Murray (Freshman All-American last year) outshining, however slightly, the likes of Heisman-hopeful Moore in what could easily become a shootout.

I like Georgia +3 here, and Over 52, with a scoreline that might look eerily similar to the inverse of last year’s Boise-Virginia Tech thriller. Here’s to hoping for, if nothing else, the same level of excitement/entertainment.

LSU’s Compliance Office Offers Some Unsolicited Advice to UNC, Boise State, Ohio State, et al

May 5, 2011

I’m not sure if the folks down in Baton Rouge ever got a handle on that pesky “Glory Hole” problem, but I’ll be damned if they run afoul of NCAA regulations anytime soon — thanks to “The Most Compliant Man In the World,” of course.

Somewhat convenient timing, it being Cinco de Mayo and all, I suppose. Dos Equis’ “The Most Interesting Man in the World” may or may not be flattered, but I imagine compliance nerds the NCAA over respect LSU’s efforts here.

The Best of the 2011 Under Armour Senior Bowl Weigh-In Notes

January 25, 2011

Under Armour Senior BowlMore specifically, The Best of Scott Wright’s Draft Countdown Senior Bowl Weigh-in Notes, because (1) his work is the primary source for this post, and (2) it’s probably the only Senior Bowl weigh-in feature deserving of and/or awkward enough for Frump to recap.

Now, I’m not entirely sure what Mr. Wright was going for — or perhaps looking for, I guess. At times his analysis seems quite pertinent, but then, without warning, you’re greeted with something likable to the pitch of an ad that’s likely sitting in your spam folder right now.

Don’t get me wrong; I’m not trying to be critical. This approach certainly made for probably the most compelling feature on a Senior Bowl weigh-in I’ve ever read.  It just, you know, also happened to be one of the most WTF inducing as well.

Christian Ponder rocks a six packThings start off relatively innocently. Take FSU QB Christian Ponder’s “note“: Great definition with a six-pack.

A six-pack, eh? Good to know?

Then again, I guess that’s fair to highlight. After all, if we’re going to deride the Terrence Cody’s of the football meat market, we might as well take note of the guys that actually put a bit of effort into their protein shake endorsement appeal.  Take the “good” with the “bad,” right?

Well, if it ended there, I wouldn’t be frumping this post right now. As you’ll see after the jump, things began to spiral rapidly — and progressively — out of control as Draft Countdown went through the position groups…

Eastern Washington Red Field

Ok, I’m a fan of red as much as the next guy, but this is just crossing all sorts of lines.  After seeing the success a school like Boise St. has had after installing a blue field, Eastern Washington has decided to go ahead with making their turf red.

“There is no doubt that one of Boise State’s claims to fame has been their blue turf and like it or dislike it, it has certainly brought them a tremendous amount of notoriety,” EWU athletic director Bill Chaves said.

I Gotta Have More Cowbell!!!!

Boise St. Cowbell

I’ve been watching the Fiesta Bowl tonight and while I’ve been entertained by a tight game(10-10 in the 4th as I type), it’s been the unintended humor that has got me watching! 

It all started at halftime when the Boise St. marching band took the field.  First thing I noticed, there is an apparent minimum weight requirement to be a dancer and it’s higher than it should be.  Then FOX decided to treat us to a closeup of the percussionists and that’s when it got good!  As you can see from that still above that the guy is possibly TOO into those cymbals while that poor poor girl could not be any more bored with that cowbell.  As you see in the video, she starts off indifferent and then really “Hams it up” with that smirk when she notices the camera is on her.  Oh man, unintentional comedy gold. 

 

As if that weren’t enough, check out after the frump for a quick video of a Horned Frog vomiting while running to the sideline and a screenshot of what must be an interesting Boise St. Major, Cummunication.

P.S. Come on TCU, I’m tired of Boise St. and their self righteous blue field!
