Sheltra: UI Should Return To Big Sky

The toughest, gutsiest call made by Idaho football in recent memory came when head coach Robb Akey decided to go for two points with four seconds left against Bowling Green in the 2009 Humanitarian Bowl. Compared with the decisions the Vandal athletic department could be forced to make in the coming weeks, Akey’s decision — which, in case you’ve forgotten, worked and left the Vandals with a 43-42 victory — seems as routine as the game’s opening kickoff. The decision this corner is calling for the University of Idaho to make? Go back to the Big Sky Conference. In all sports/Patrick Sheltra, Twin Falls Times-News sports editor. More here.

Question: Should the Idaho Vandals continue to fight to be a "bit player" in the big college division or become a player in a revamped Big Sky?
