I see a little bit of this when reading some of the Xavier boards too. The "Us against the BCS" mentality. The little school demanding respect.

When you don't demand it anymore, you know you have arrived.

Those Boise folks are more creative than I remember when I lived down there. Funny and true.

bigger stadium (noun) - used to explain why an AQ will not play a great non-AQ away from home. Rule 4:8.5 of the AQ handbook provides an exception to this clause

"If the AQ knows they can beat the non-AQ on their home field*, the size of the stadium is irrelevant."

*--2005--USC at Hawai'i
--2006--Boston College at Central Michigan
--2007 California at Colorado State
--2007 Maryland at Florida International
--2007 Oklahoma at Tulsa
--2007 Texas Tech at Rice
--2008 Texas Tech at Nevada
--2008 Texas at UTEP
--2008 Texas A & M at New Mexico

That is completely unfair putting Maryland in there! MD is perfectly capable of losing to a non-BCS team in their home stadium.
