Boise State loses first game of the season but 10K Facebook fans support kicker Brotzman

Boise State lost its first game of the season in an upset to Nevada on Friday night, 34-31. It was the team’s first loss since 2008 in the Poinsetta Bowl to TCU. Boise State had long argued for its place at the top of college football, but many argued Boise State played a weaker schedule, and its record was misleading. Boise State was ranked No.3 in the BCS standings and was making a strong case for a bid to the National Championship. Then, in the team’s last meaningful game of the season, the Broncos fell short to No.19 Nevada.

Kyle Brotzman, Boise State’s all-time leading kicker and scoring leader, missed two field goals in the loss to Nevada. The biggest heartache came when Brotzman missed a 26-yard field goal with 2 seconds left in regulation that would have won the game.

You’d think that Brotzman would turn into Boise State’s Public Enemy No.1, but Bronco fans have rallied around the kicker making a Facebook group: Bronco Nations Loves Kyle Brotzman.

The Facebook group has almost 10,000 Facebook fans. In a story of good versus evil, other negative and derogatory Facebook groups have been created against Brotzman, but none have generated the following like this one.

Boise State may have kissed their chance to the BCS Title Game and National Championship goodbye, but at least they win the Social Media Bowl. The Kyle Brontzman Facebook fan page has almost double the fans than Oregon Duck Football.

The Ducks are ranked No.1 in the BCS and the favorite to win the National Championship. To fan the Bronco Nation Loves Kyle Brotzman click here!
