With conference reshuffling still ongoing, Idaho athletic director Rob Spear in an email confirmed that he's had conversations with Mountain West Conference comissioner Craig Thompson. “We are exploring all avenues and this includes the Mountain West,” Spear said. UI has yet to make a presentation to the MWC board of directors, he said. The Vandals are current members of the Western Athletic Conference, which is set to lose Boise State, Fresno State, Hawaii and Nevada to the MWC. The San Jose Mercury News reported earlier this week that San Jose State could be a target of the MWC as well. And late last year it was reported Utah State was talking to the MWC.
