Boise State Wisely Shielding Kellen Moore From SEC Media

Boise State has elected to make its players unavailable to "opposing media," which is super weird and implies a lot of newspaper guys and bloggers are going to throw on Nike Pro Combat 2011® uniforms and do some blitzes in defense of Georgia.

Probably a good idea though. Here's a taste of what the Broncos are avoiding by tuning out Southeastern media:

"Kellen Moore, Kellen Moore ... is it true your blue turf tradition originated when a whole bunch of boat tarps blew off the lake and landed on your field? We're gonna take the boat out after work on Tuesday, by the way."

"Kellen, are Mormons even allowed to eat Chick-fil-A on Sundays? Trick question, nobody is. What church you go to?"

 "Kellen, talk about what it will mean for you to look across the line of scrimmage and see a row of helmets all done up to look like Erk Russell's bleeding scalp."  

"Mr. Moore, give us your thoughts on Boise's all-time record against Arkansas. Humor us, as we find it to be relevant to this game against Georgia even though we still think of Arkansas as a Big Eight team even though they weren't. Speak up, son."

"[Question about whether any SEC East teams will beat any SEC West teams this year.]"

"Kellen, how much of Idaho would you guesstimate is Braves Country, and how much just roots for the Sonics or Mariners?"

"[Question about Pacific Northwest BBQ.]"

"Kellen, what's it like to finally get a Houston Nutt program to the Georgia Dome?"
