In addition to fly fishing I have several other passions - backpacking/camping, mountain biking, and football. On August 31st, Boise State plays the University of Washington in Seattle. I've been a Boise State season ticket holder for nearly 20 years and attended games for another 10 years or so prior to that. Back in the day, Boise State played as a Division 1-AA member (FCS), winning a National Championship in 1980 and losing in the final in 1994. In 1997, Boise State moved up to 1A (FBS). It was a difficult early transition for them because the coach who was hired to lead them into the FBS division was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer just prior to the 1994 Championship game and passed away at the end of 1997 - their first year as a FBS school. Along the way, they hired a number of good coaches - Houston Nutt (who later went on to coach the Razorbacks at Arkansas and Ole Miss), Dirk Koetter (who went on to coach Arizona State, Dan Hawkins (Colorado) and finally Chris Petersen. Each year I typically make it to one or two road games (Georgia, Michigan State, BYU, Virginia Tech, etc..). This leads me to this year. Boise State recently changed the rules they use to distribute away game tickets, so this year I was only able to get two through their ticket office. The problem I have is that I need 3 more so my entire family can go. I tried grabbing 3 tickets through the Washington Huskies website, but they sold out (I think to ticket brokers) - Does anyone have any recommendation for picking up 3 seats together? Right now the tickets are prices off the charts through Craigslist, Stubhub, etc. Finally, where's a good place to stay that's not more than 1/2 hour from the stadium and easy to get in and out of? I've heard Woodinville, Redmond, Issaquah. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg, just need something that is in a safe location and family friendly.
