Musburger Praises Coeur d’Alene Area

Sportscaster Brent Musburger, who hails from Montana, had high words of praise for the Coeur d’Alene area during Boise State’s victory over Virginia Tech in Washington, D.C., last night. After former Lake City High star Byron Hout made a tackle in the second half, Musburger told his broadcast partner  Kirk Herbstreit about Coeur d’Alene, urging him to go to Idaho and to go up north to Coeur d’Alene. “It’s one of the most beautiful spots in the world — with all those lakes,” Musburger said. Herbstreit responded that Mussberger had piqued his interest in our area.

Question: Do you like to hear Coeur d’Alene and/or North Idaho mentioned in glowing terms on national television?

Musburger: Griz Should Stay In Big Sky

As the NCAA gets ready to lift a moratorium on schools moving up to the Football Bowl Subdivision, Griz football fans are debating the pluses and minuses. Montana native and ABC and ESPN sports broadcaster Brent Musburger says such a move would be “economic suicide.” Musburger was in Bozeman for a fundraiser for the Montana State women’s golf team. Musburger says moving Montana up to the FBS would be a horrendous mistake and that the state could not support a FBS team/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Do you think the Montana Grizzlies should move up to Divison I or stay in the Big Sky Conference, which they dominate in football?
