Boos Turn To Cheers For Brotzman

In the Los Angeles Times, Bill Plaschke writes: "I don’t cheer for a team. I don’t cheer for a player. I cheer for a position. I cheer for the college kicker lining up for a game-winning field goal. It doesn’t matter who he is. It doesn’t matter where he plays. It doesn’t even matter if the field goal would make my local team lose. I always cheer for the college kicker to be the hero, because I’m cheering against the undeserved pain he would suffer by being the goat." Plaschke goes on to explain why he was cheering himself hoarse for Boise State kicker Kyle Brotzman after Brotzman missed the two field goals at the end of the Broncos' loss to Nevada Friday.

Question: Are you still celebrating/moaning Boise State's loss to Nevada?
