This Week's SFL Schedule

In case you missed it, since the summer is an off-time for Boise State news, I decided to create my own.  There's an online simulation site in which you can match teams from the past against each other.  Out of curiosity, I decided to join their site and play football teams from Boise State against each other to see what the software determined to be the strongest team.  The downside is that it only goes back to 2001.  However, those teams represent the top period in Boise State football.

I set up a 12-game season and while I was at it, I also took the National Champions from the last 10 years and placed them in what I called the "Simulation Football League".  Each team will play all teams in their division once and have three random games against teams from the other divisions.  The site comes complete with game results and statistics.  I have simulated two weeks' worth of games thus far--you can find details below on this blog.

Many people not only in Boise but around the country felt perhaps the 2006 Boise State team was in the right location (Glendale, Arizona) but perhaps in the wrong game (the Fiesta Bowl instead of the National Championship).  Lo and behold, a matchup between that famous Bronco team and the mythical National Champion Florida team highlights this week's schedule.  That will be interesting to see the outcome.  The 2010 Boise State-2004 National Champion USC contest will also be fun to watch.  Also, we knew how good the "Leave No Doubt" team of 2002 was, but how will they fare against the Liberty Bowl team of 2004?

Here is this week's schedule:

2006 Boise State vs. 2006 Florida
2007 Boise State vs. 2009 Alabama
2008 Boise State vs. 2002 Ohio State
