‘We Are THE University Of Idaho’

From blog by Kevin Richert/Idaho Statesman, a statement by UI President Duane Nellis re: Idaho Bored of Education decision to remove "flagship" from UI designation: "I have just returned to Moscow from the Idaho State Board of Education meeting in Boise and let me tell you it feels great to be “home.” I am very disappointed in the board’s decision today to remove the word “flagship” from our mission statement. This edit does not change who we are or how we will operate going forward. We are THE University of Idaho. I agree wholeheartedly with ASUI President Samantha Perez who said today that “flagship” is a factual definition of who we are at our core. Thanks to all of you for your support and good wishes as we work through this disappointment."  Full post here.

Question: Do you think this move by the Bored of Education has anything to do with Boise State's football dominance?
