Kustra’s A ‘Blue & Orange’ Snot?

Idaho coach Robb Akey let his team speak Monday, and one Vandal didn’t bite his tongue. Responding to a question about comments made by Boise State president Bob Kustra in July about Idaho’s fan base that Kustra described as “nasty, inebriated,” senior running back Deonte Jackson didn’t hesitate with his answer. “Personally, I tried not to read too much into it,” he said. “But I wouldn’t expect anything different coming from the blue and orange snot. I just took it and use it as fuel in the fire and feed my hunger to want to get after these guys to finish my career off with a win against them and bring pride back to this community, the University of Idaho and Moscow”/Chadd Cripe, Idaho Statesman.

Question: Will Idaho’s trash-talking translate into a win at the Kibbie Dome against Boise State?
