When former Boise State head coach Chris Petersen signed a five-year deal with Washington last Friday, it meant a new beginning for the Huskies. But more than that, Petersens departure also means the end of an era in college football. During his eight-year run on the blue turf of Bronco Stadium, nobody won more games than Petersen. His 92-12 record is unmatched from 2006 to 2013. He led the Broncos to five 12-win seasons, and took home five conference titles. Under Petersens tutelage, Boise State didnt just win; they went from mid-major, to BCS buster, to national power. Petersen announced Boise States arrival at the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. In a game that included both a statue of liberty play, and a hook and ladder, and ended with a marriage proposal, BSU stunned Oklahoma 43-42 in overtime to cap an undefeated season. The Broncos became just the second non-AQ school to win a BCS bowl, and finished No. 5 in the AP Top 25. In 2009 “Coach P” did it again, leading Boise State to the Fiesta bowl, beating TCU to finish undefeated. Petersen also led Boise State to victories over national powers like Oregon, Virginia Tech, and Georgia. He led BSU to eight-straight bowl games and led them to respect from the college football elite. In the season following their 2010 Fiesta Bowl win, Boise State debuted at No. 3 in the AP Top 25, the highest pre-season ranking for a non-AQ school in the BCS era. That year the Broncos would peak at No. 2 and were a missed overtime field goal away from a possible national championship berth. During the Petersen era, Boise State moved from the now defunct WAC to the MWC. They helped the MWC secure a new television contract worth a reported $116 million, and guaranteed themselves three home games a year with a national television audience. All this at a school that recruits two-star athletes, plays in a tiny 37,000-seat stadium - 84th largest in the NCAA - and resides in the 120th largest media market in America. Washington wasnt the first AQ program to show interest; Petersens name was a constant in almost any discussion of head coaching vacancies. Arkansas, USC, UCLA, and Stanford all came calling at one time or another. But Petersen always stayed, content to lead his program and raise his family in isolated Boise. That changed this year. The Broncos won just eight games, the lowest win total of Petersens eight-year tenure. Rampant conference realignment left the MWC substantially weaker than it was when the BSU joined in 2011. And with the college football playoff coming, it should be harder than ever for schools from non-power conferences to crash the party. So Petersen heads to Washington, a school with a long, proud history. He heads to a school that beat him twice in his time in Idaho, and one that ranks third all-time in Rose Bowl appearances.Its fitting that the man who defined the term BCS buster moves on as the BCS as we know it gets busted up once and for all. Some other notes from around college football: -When Michigan State upset Ohio State, talk immediately turned to Auburn and the National Championship. But lost in the BCS shuffle was how great the moment was for the Spartans. The last time MSU was in the Rose Bowl, 1988, most of the current Spartans hadnt even been born yet. After Oregons DeAnthony Thomas said the Rose Bowl was “not a big deal,” it was refreshing to see MSUs players acting excited to be heading to the grand-daddy of them all. -Despite stunning numbers, Fresno States Derek Carr didnt receive an invite to the Heisman ceremony on Saturday. Carr led FBS with 4,833 yards passing, and a ridiculous TD/INT ratio of 48/7. He also led the Bulldogs to an 11-1 record, and a win in the inaugural MWC championship. Brother of former first overall pick David Carr, Derek should take solace in the fact that he too should be a top-10 pick. -One of the strangest sights of the season had to be UCFs game against SMU last Saturday. With a blast of winter on the way, SMU officials offered free admission to Gerald Ford Stadium. But after temperatures dipped to -5 C at kickoff - the coldest home game in SMU history - almost nobody showed up. The announced attendance was 12,589, but the AP reports the actual crowd was less than 1,000, and the stadium looked empty on the broadcast. Tickets for No. 15 UCFs next game - the Fiesta Bowl - start at $95. -One head coach to watch in the crop of new hires is Wyomings Craig Bohl. Bohl comes to Laramie from North Dakota State, where he guided the Bisons for the last 11 seasons. Since 2010, NDSU is 40-2 under Bohl, and is coming off back-to-back FCS championships. The former Nebraska defensive coordinator will finish the FCS playoffs with NDSU before joining the Cowboys. -Another coach to follow will be opposite Bohl this weekend when North Dakota meets Coastal Carolina in the FCS quarterfinals. Joe Moglia is in his second season as head coach of the Chanticleers. Moglia is actually a multimillionaire, the former CEO of TD Ameritrade. After stepping down in 2008, Moglia became a sort of unpaid intern with Nebraska, shadowing Bo Pelini for two years. A brief stint in the now-defunct UFL later, and Moglia was hired at Coastal Carolina. Last season the Chanticleers went 8-5. This season the team from Myrtle Beach, SC is 12-2. -Former Sooners head coach Barry Switzer drew criticism back in November when he tweeted before Oklahomas game against Iowa State, “Since everyone beats ISU at home, I want to be the first to congratulate [Bob Stoops] on tying the record of 157 wins!” Well the three-time national champion was at it again before Saturdays game against Oklahoma State tweeting, “Sooners will ‘Hang Half a Hundred Saturday! Anyone want to bet Old Coach!!!!” OU didnt hang ‘half a hundred, but they did beat OSU for the 10th time in 11 meetings. No word yet if Switzer will tweet about a Sooners upset of Alabama before the Sugar bowl. Click here for the Dec. 12 podcast. Adrian Peterson Youth Jersey .

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- First, Ryan Miller. Now, Pat LaFontaine. A day after trading their star goalie to St. Louis, the Buffalo Sabres lost another face of their franchise after LaFontaine abruptly resigned as president of hockey operations on Saturday a little more than three months after being brought in to provide a new direction to the NHLs last-place team. The Sabres announced the decision in a news release issued after speculation had been raised of a potential front-office shake-up involving LaFontaine. "I would like to thank Pat for all he has done for the organization," Sabres owner Terry Pegula said in the release. "Pat joined us at a very difficult time, and helped transition the organization down a new path." The Sabres said LaFontaine would be returning to his previous role working with the National Hockey League. LaFontaine had been working with the league on player safety issues before being hired by the Sabres in mid-November. The former Sabres captains arrival was hailed as a major turning point for a struggling team. LaFontaine took over following a change in the front office during which general manager Darcy Regier and coach Ron Rolston were dismissed following the Sabres 4-15-1 start. LaFontaines first move was hiring former Sabres coach Ted Nolan to take over as coach on an interim basis for the remainder of the season. LaFontaines next step came in January, when he hired Tim Murray as general manager. "Terry Pegula hired me in November, and my primary objective was to lead the Sabres organization through a time of transition," LaFontaine said in the Sabres release. "Im proud of what weve been able to accomplish in a short period of time, and want to thank Terry and Kim Pegula for the opportunity and their support during my time with the Sabres." LaFontaines resignation still comes as a major surprise. In January, LaFontaine talked openly about how he would use his connections to USA Hockey in a bid to lure national and international events to Buffalo. He leaves a day after Murray made his first big splash by trading star goalie Ryan Miller and captain Steve Ott to the St. Louis Blues. In exchange, the Sabres acquired goalie Jaroslav Halak, forward Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier, a 2015 first-round pick and a connditional 2016 third-round pick in a deal reached in advance of the NHL trade deadline on Wednesday.dddddddddddd The Sabres (18-34-8) had the day off on Saturday, and return to practice on Sunday before travelling to play at Dallas on Monday. They remain in last place, but are enjoying their first three-game winning streak following a 4-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Friday. This is not the first time LaFontaine has abruptly stepped down as an NHL team executive. In July 2006, LaFontaine quit the New York Islanders a little over a month after being brought in to serve as senior adviser to owner Charles Wang. In Buffalo, LaFontaines absence was notable this week once the team returned to the ice following the leagues Olympic break. He was not spotted in the press box during the Sabres three-game homestand that began with a 3-2 win over Carolina on Tuesday. That was unusual because LaFontaine had previously spent time watching games from the press-box level in Pegulas box, alongside Murray and several of the owners associates. LaFontaine also missed the teams "Power Play Luncheon" for fans on Friday, when he was scheduled to speak along with fellow former Sabres greats Gilbert Perreault, Rene Robert and Danny Gare. The crowd was informed LaFontaine had the flu. The Sabres have become a top-heavy organization since Regiers dismissal. Pegula created the position of president of hockey operations to hire LaFontaine. And Pegula did so only after LaFontaine declined a chance to become the GM by saying he didnt think he had enough experience for that job. Along with hiring Murray, the Sabres also brought in Hockey Hall of Fame member and long-time executive Craig Patrick to serve as a special adviser. LaFontaine backed the hiring of Murray and Patrick, by referring to both as his "wingers." He also discussed how important it was for him to be building a front-office team that could work together in rebuilding a team that has missed the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, and not won a playoff round since reaching the 2007 Eastern Conference finals. Its not clear what effect LaFontaines departure will have on the teams short-term future, including Nolans status. Murray said this week hes already had discussions with Nolan about extending his contract beyond this season.
