Boise State fans have a message for kicker Kyle Brotzman: We still love you.

A Facebook page titled The Bronco Nation Loves Kyle Brotzman popped up online Saturday, less than 24 hours after Brotzman missed two short field goals in Boise State's 34-31 overtime loss at Nevada.

Under a photo of the senior following through on a kick from an earlier game is the caption: Thanks, Kyle, for all you've done for the Broncos.

As of Saturday night, 5,462 people had clicked the Like button on the page and hundreds of supportive messages had been posted.


Brotzman, the school's career scoring leader, missed a 26-yard field goal with 2 seconds left in regulation that would have won the game against Nevada and kept Boise State unbeaten. He also missed from 29 yards out in overtime.
