UI Headed Back To Sun Belt?

The University of Idaho football team could return to the Sun Belt Conference. According to, Idaho, New Mexico State and Georgia Southern are on the Sun Belt’s list of schools to replace Middle Tennessee State and Florida Atlantic. Conference realignment trickled down to the Sun Belt after Conference USA took the Blue Raiders and Owls on Wednesday to go to 14 teams. The Sun Belt is positioned to fill in, and Idaho and New Mexico State are immediately available as both are exploring playing as independents after the demise of the WAC following this season. Georgia Southern is an emerging FCS program moving up to FBS. Idaho was a member of the Sun Belt in 2001 until 2005/KOZE.

Question: I'm sorry. I simply not excited about Idaho returning to the Sun Belt. How about you?
