Are you still mad that BSU was snubbed by the BCS? If so, you can join a group of Boise State fans just like you! They started a Facebook page called that you can check out for more information.

Tonight, they are gathering at Schooners in Meridian at 5:30 p.m. to do anything and everything BUT watch the BCS Championship. You can boycott with them if you'd like. It's open to the public!

The group's mission:

"We believe that silence is all that is required for the BCS to maintain the status quo.  Our goal is to give a voice to the millions of college football fans who agree that the BCS is a broken system.  In the process we aim to make a positive impact on any local economy we influence by encouraging citizens to get out and support local businesses instead of inadvertently supporting the BCS system with silence."

The group's philosophy:

"We are NOT whiners.  We are college football fans who care about the sport and are frustrated by a blatantly broken BCS system.  As fans we are inclined to watch the BCS games, but we realize that doing so supports a system we disagree with.  We will instead find something else fun and positive to do during those times so that our voice is heard."
