It turns out once again that no life is perfect -- not even "pinch-me" Ian Johnson's. It was a lot to expect that the most talked-about star of Boise State's miracle victory over Oklahoma in last season's Fiesta Bowl would get a seamless romp from his walk-off, two-point conversion run in overtime, to his post-game marriage proposal on national television, to today's buzz-of-Boise wedding to cheerleader Chrissy Popadics.

The star quarterback is long gone, and by long we mean a deep route to the Detroit Lions. Boise State had a four-year record of 50-3 with Kellen Moore at quarterback passing for 14,667 yards and a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 142 to 28. He'll be missed like Old Yeller. The NCAA bed-check police took some of Boise State's scholarships away because recruits were sleeping on players' couches - justice never rests - and the Broncos' defense needs a massive makeover. So this should be it for Boise State, the finally-gotcha-moment after years of uncanny success under blue skies over a bluer field.

The Times' Chris Dufresne unveils his preseason college football top 25, one day (and team) at a time. No.12 Boise State Ninth-year senior tailback Ian Johnson says a recent flair-up of bursitis won't keep him out of this year's exciting Sept. 3 opener on Boise's blue turf. OK . . . it only seems as if Johnson had college football's only rollover scholarship. The forever hero of Boise State's epic Fiesta Bowl win against Oklahoma, though, has finally exhausted his eligibility.

The story that has captivated the college football bowl season has moved from Ian Johnson's bended knee to the bright lights of New York City to the warmth of hearth and home and the dimmer lights of San Dimas. All in five days. If you didn't see it when it happened, you probably have seen a replay by now. Fox Sports is showing it under the heading "Instant Classic." Turns out, that's right. This story is "Hoosiers" without any Hollywood tinkering, "Rudy" with a better ending.

The sophomore tailback rushed for 147 yards and three touchdowns in No. 12 Boise State's 38-7 victory over host Nevada, probably clinching a spot in the Bowl Championship Series for the unbeaten Broncos.
