Sorry, but owing to the bye week, there is no Live Chat today, but we'll resume next Thursday and do this thing the rest of the season here on SportsLink. In the meantime, here's a link to my Big Sky notebook. Speaking of the Big Sky, here's a story by our own Josh Wright on Idaho's struggle to fill a schedule next year while playing as an independent. Word is, half the Vandals are fine with going FCS, and the others need some more convincing.
From the Missoulian, here's a look at the upwardly mobile Liberty Flames, who play the Griz this week but have their sites on bigger things, like FBS (Maybe they schedule Idaho for a home-amd-home next year.). … Apparently, Weber State isn't a big draw, even at BYU, according to this column in the Ogden Standard-Examiner. Speaking of columns, this one by Greg Rachac of the Billings Gazette gives a thumbs-up to UM for its choice of Kent Haslam as athletic director.
