Fresno State and Nevada accepted invitations Wednesday to join Boise State in the Mountain West. Boise State moves in the summer of 2011, but it's still unclear whether Nevada and Fresno State will take that step in 2011 or 2012. The schools missed the July 1 deadline to leave the WAC for 2011-12, but there is room for negotiation. ...

Question: What should the Idaho Vandals do now?
