Yes, Boise State has played in big stadiums. Yes, they have played on big stages. The only common denominator between the 2005 game and this game is the crowd. Those dudes rolled into Athens shell shocked, and the Broncos were down by 17 before they realized what had happened. I think it'll be a madhouse in there. Loud as hell. We have to make sure it is and keep that up, especially if the Dawgs get down early.
Mental status of this Georgia team appears very strong. It is on the fans to make sure they know we have their back. I'll stay off a rant about booing, but suffice it to say we should leave the bad taste in our mouth over last year in last year, especially during this game.
I've been at FedEx Field, where Boise State beat Virginia Tech last season, for a Redskins playoff game. Now, Redskin fans can be loud, however, it wasn't nearly as loud as the Georgia Dome is with Georgia people in it. The crowd can be the 12th man for Georgia, as Boise State will have 15 or so thousand fans there. It is up to us to show the Bulldogs that their work is recognized by us.
