I'm still gathering my thoughts about the now getting-old football season and there hasn't been much to report there, anyway, but I did want to weigh in on a few things.

1. That close-call to Boise State sure looks a lot better after the Broncos beat Oklahoma. Hope you got to watch that game.

2. Expect a lot more league-wide attention because of that game. I'm telling you, SJSU officials HAVE to strike while the iron is hot and the buzz is still going. This offseason will define a generationg -- for better or worse.

3. If we don't lose anyone leaving early to the NFL Draft, next season could be special, but just how special will be determined by fan turnout. Without strong support, there's no way SJSU gets invited to a reputable bowl game.

On to other things... the Merc has been pretty quiet on the football front lately, but had this story about the basketball team's trip to Duke. An interesting behind-the-scenes look to be sure, and much appreciated. Yet, I found some glaring details missing -- such as SJSU at one point in the second half trailing by just three -- and the level of writing just did not match the level of reporting, which I'm sure is partly due to the relative quick turnaround.

Anyway, it's definitely worth a read.
