When I was a young lad, I always aspired to make it big in Boise. Or at least Pocatello. It looks like I’ve made it.

The Occupy The BCS movement, which we will claim to have started at Rumors and Rants because the evidence allows us to, has at least caught on with Boise State fans, who prominently displayed the cause at the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl last week while supporting the Broncos. (The above picture is displayed on the website of Boise TV station KTVB).

It is true that I called for a boycott of all bowl games in my original manifesto, but at least by showing up these guys got the movement more attention. I’m willing to compromise.

Of course, the downside is that those Boise State fans made their presence known at the Las Vegas Bowl, which means that pretty much no one outside of Idaho realizes this happened. But we do, and we’re going to promote the hell out of our brothers in arms.

Viva la revolution! Someday we will have a playoff, and it will be glorious. (Until then, enjoy the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl between two teams without head coaches in the lamest postseason system ever created).
