Things are pretty quiet with Idaho football these days because of the bye week, but I wanted to pass along this note. I asked UI athletic director Rob Spear yesterday if any schools had called seeking permission to talk to coach Robb Akey (UNLV is rumored to be interested) and he said, "I have not been contacted." He went on to say, "I think it isn’t something we should be caught off guard by. "
Spear also said this about Idaho's bowl hopes entering its regular season finale next week against Utah State: "I feel very good about our chances. Obviously we need to go 8-4 to solidify it."
