So much for the old myth of “amateur student athletes.”
With our Broncos knocking at the door of a BCS Bowl berth we bristle at the chuckles about blue turf from our Big Ten relatives in the Midwest. We even started buying into the BSU hype of being an “urban university beyond the blue.”
Then along comes one of those radio interviews with the players and Kyle Wilson is asked, “What brought you out here all the way from New Jersey?”
It wasn’t the blue, it wasn’t a chance to get a good education in the field of computer science, electrical engineering or even business. It wasn’t the nice people in Boise, the nearby mountains, the great conservative nature of politics.
His response: “I sent them a tape and we did the deal.”
At least the dude is honest. Go Broncos!
