…And for the JT naysayers, Dan Hawkins got fired. He was the golden boy at Boise who – I’m pretty sure was HC when they beat Oklahoma. Peterson is a great coach but so were Hawkins and Koetter based on their Boise records as HC.
Hawkins was not the Boise St. coach when they beat Oklahoma- Chris Peterson was. Boise was good with Koetter and Hawkins, but they were not great coaches and both bolted for “greener” pastures before sustaining long term success. The Broncos have stepped up several levels into the stratosphere since they left with Peterson as HC. So your point is mostly baseless.
My bad on Boise HC for Ok game. My point – made badly – is that Koetter brought Boise to prominence and Hawkins kept them there. They were – at the time – golden boy coaches like Neuheisel, Sarkesian (sp) and Kiffin.
