Murphy: UI-BSU Rivalry Should Continue

Item: Murphy: Idaho-BSU rivalry needs to stay alive/Brian Murphy, Idaho Statesman

More Info: With no excuses, no hiatus and no exceptions, Boise State and Idaho must continue their annual football game. Boise State's well-deserved invitation to the Mountain West to begin play in 2011 should not be the pretense to end a 40-year rivalry. It's important for the state that its two largest universities and major football programs play each year. It's an economic generator, whether the game is in Boise or Moscow. It's a state showcase, a proud moment for fans of both teams, whether they attended the schools or not.

Question: Do you agree w/Brian Murphy that the Idaho-BSU football rivalry should continue without any "excuses ... hiatus ... exceptions"?
