Chris Peterson Reminds You Who’s Boss

Many blogs are having fun with this comment by Boise State coach Chris Peterson when asked about continuing the Boise State-Idaho game after this year:

Why would we (go to Moscow)? I don’t think our fans even like to go up there. Most of Idaho’s fans are in Boise anyway.

 I took a different view of this. What if Paul Johnson made the following remark to the AJC?

Why would we go to Athens? I don’t think our fans even like to go up there. Most of Georgia’s fans are in Atlanta anyway.

Can you imagine the furor over that? I mean, there may be a similar furor in Idaho anyway, but still.

That said, it’s not quite similar – the distance from Boise to Moscow is around 300 miles through hilly terrain that, according to Google maps, would take around 6 hours to traverse. Meanwhile, if traffic is good, it takes about 45 minutes to an hour to get to Athens.
