Sam: UI Sports Disses Vandal Nation

Sam: Tonight, the Vandals saw both a win and a loss. Mike Iupati is an amazing athlete and a mature young adult who deserves the accolades and should be a standard bearer for what it means to be a respectful college athlete that kids can look up to. But also tonight, the Vandal athletics department showed up petty and unprofessional they can be by denying an interview with coach Robb Akey to Vandal Nation, the blog run by Travis Mason-Bushman, a University of Idaho Argonaut reporter who also happens to have nearly 5,000 (you read that right) people following his coverage of all things Vandal Sports at any given time. Full comment here.

Question: Does Robb Akey and the UIdaho sports department owe loyal Vandal Nation an apology for refusing an interview after Mike Iupati was drafted by the 49ers?
