What's more amazing is that they only have one FCS program scheduled, and that's in 2016.
I have a feeling that Montana got in before the Idaho decision to address their predicament.
Based on some of their comments over the last few years....they knew that dark clouds were on the horizon. I believe improving their OOC schedule might be one of the tools they are using to either stabilize their free fall and/or look more attractive to a new conference.
Keeping the number of FCS games to a minimum should help their bottom line. While playing every close conference except the B12 allows them to travel well, that's if Idaho travels well to begin with??
They are in a tough spot....but, they seem to be making the most out of it at this point in time.
I would assume they have prepared for the outcomes possible. Which means they have some idea of what they would do as an Indy. I've got to figure they beg every close MWC school for a yearly game and hope that a(1) PAC school will help them out every third year or so.
UMass and BYU have some openings after 2017. But, Army is really full.
Seeing the opposite side of the coin with NMSU.
Between 2016-2021(24 spots)...they have 10 games scheduled. And 4 of that 10 are next season. Maybe, NMSU knows something that Idaho doesn't??
