So do all those Idaho Vandals antenna flags flap in the breeze at half-staff from now on? Today in a meeting room in Boise, University of Idaho president Duane Nellis and athletic director Rob Spear schlep themselves in front of the State Board of Education to ask permission to crank the DeLorean up to 88 mph and run it past the clock tower in hopes of a lightning strike. Technically, the BOE is voting to give Marty and Doc merely the OK to explore a back-to-the-future reunion with the Big Sky Conference in basketball and the not-important sports, along with football oblivion … er, independence. Spear got on the Twitter horn Thursday to point out there’s to be “nothing official” regarding a move, though the agenda mentions accepting an invitation from the Sky. What’s official is this: There’s a lot of hard swallowing going on, all over the Vandal map/John Blanchette, SR. More here.

Question: Which conference game would you rather see: Idaho vs. Montana or Idaho vs. New Mexico State?
