Vandals Kick Off Against Florida

"Are you ready for some football, Vandals?" asks the University of Idaho Facebook page. "The Idaho Vandals football season kicks off this Saturday in "The Swamp" versus Florida. And we're back for the home opener Saturday, Sept. 13. For tickets and more visit here."(University of Idaho Facebook photo)

DFO: I've been to "The Swamp" (Ben Hill Griffin Stadium) on the University of Florida campus in August. I don't envy the UI Vandals Saturday. High humidity + up to 100,000 people in a stadium built into the ground isn't my idea of a good time. But I'm looking forward to the rest of the UI season, now that the footballers are in the Sun Belt Conference and the rest of the sports team, esp. basketball, returns to the Big Sky.

Question: What are your thoughts re: UI's coming sports year?
