Boise State equipment truck, meet cow; cow, meet untimely demise

If we’re being frank — and when are we not? — I actually debated at some length about whether or not this was worth two minutes of your time. After deliberation, I’ve determined that, yes, a farm animal getting vaporized by a truck that just so happens to be carrying football equipment for Boise State is at least worth a peek.

Assuming you’re not grossed out by visuals of road kill, that is. If you are, now’s your chance to get out before your eyes start glancing down at the big picture below¬†and sweet mother of Joseph!¬†

Courtesy of Brian Murphy of the Idaho Statesman, we bring you what was a cow that has, unfortunately, found its way to the big ol’ pasture in the sky.

The accident happened early Wednesday outside Albuquerque. thankfully, no one was hurt (outside of you-know-who) and the trailer and its contents weren’t damaged. The truck was on its way to Southern Miss, where Boise State plays Saturday.

Sources have told CFT that Boise State later apologized to the cow’s owner, but the Mountain West released a statement saying that is inaccurate.

    One of the more interesting highlights of B.S.YOU’s 2012 campaign.

    I read this to hopefully find out how this happened. Cow neither sprint out into traffic, nor are they too small to be seen. Was the cow in the road as the truck came around a curve? What happened? Sounds as if BSU needs a new driver.

    “Mess with the bull, get the semi”?

    I’ve got a beef with you running this story. And by the way, who let the cow out? Hoof Hoof

    If the cow’s name was deb I suggest you look into another Boise conspiracy.

    Any background check on the driver?

    Looks like another investigation for major violations from the NCAA.

    I would imagine the mess on the front of the truck is nothing compared to the mess in the drivers pants.

    Obviously a University of Idaho cow!
