The once proud program - which was a perennial playoff team at the Division I-AA level in the 1980s and early '90s - has bumbled along since joining the ranks of the Football Bowl Subdivision, struggling to find fan support with just one winning season since 2001 and five 10-plus loss years, all while falling 12 straight times to one-time rival Boise State (the average score of those contests was 51-18). The years of one and two win seasons scattered throughout the last decade and the neglect of its facilities has put Idaho in an unenviable situation/Devin Rokyta, Moscow-Pullman Daily News.
