UI Football Situation Drags On

At a football scrimmage last month, Idaho athletic director Rob Spear (pictured) sat on the Kibbie Dome bleachers and heard from one Vandals fan with an unwavering opinion: The football program needs to stay at the FBS level. No question about it. Spear then meandered about 10 rows over and struck up another informal chat with Vandals supporters. There a fan piped up with the opposite viewpoint: “Hey, you just need to go to the Big Sky in all sports,” Spear was told. Spear took the conversations – separated by mere minutes and feet – as an indicator that Idaho followers are split, seemingly 50-50, on which course the Vandals should plot. The muddled situation with Idaho’s football program has dragged on for months and been the source of constant (and often heated) debate among fans/Josh Wright, SR. More here.

Question: Idaho has only 4 games scheduled so far for the 2013 season. How do you think this is going to play out?
