How is Boise State Preparing For Noise in the Georgia Dome?

From Broncos beat writer Chadd Cripe of the Idaho Statesman:

The Broncos are planning to practice at the Caven-Williams Sports Complex next week with the canned crowd noise cranked up to prepare for the Georgia Dome.

The crowd actually will be smaller than for last year’s game against Virginia Tech but the dome might make it louder. The Georgia Dome holds 71,959 fans. The crowd at FedExField was 83,587.

Boise State only received 7,500 tickets for the Georgia game, so that leaves 60,000-plus cheering for the Bulldogs.

“We’re trying to do everything we can to prepare for the noise in practice so when we get there we’re not overwhelmed by it,” senior offensive tackle Nate Potter said.

The Broncos used the canned noise at times during fall camp, too. When they practice indoors, some of the coaches wear earplugs.

“That noise is painful,” coach Chris Petersen said, “but it’s part of the process.

How does Boise State have an indoor practice facility and the most profitable athletic department in the SEC not? Got a feeling Greg McGarity will fix that problem sooner rather than later.
