Me and veteran Sun-News writer Steve Ramirez discussed this last night and it makes sense.
Practice has been closed and the coach wants to keep Boise off balance. Why not throw some BS my way and have the Broncos guessing.
Now I'll say that I actually felt like coach Mumme was sincere when he told me the situation facing his team. But any coach wants a competitive advantage and having Boise guessing doesn't sound like a bad plan to me. Chase did look hurt the other night, but he's a warrior and the team wants this game badly. If they start McDermott, the chances of them winning are slim to none.
I just think it's something worth considering.
