    Vandal 2018 Schedule

    http://www.fbschedules.com/ncaa-18/2...l-schedule.php

    We have SUU and UND on the schedule. For our first year back, I would have preferred to have Weber and NAU due to our legacy games of the 80's and 90's. I would have liked a game against SAC St. or Cal Poly. But, I plan to make the UC Davis game.

    Idaho still has to add one more game to the schedule in September. Overall, this is a solid line up.

    Go Vandals

    I believe we are eligible in 2018. The rule, as I understand it, is the transition between FCS and FBS only affects the move up and not the other way. My guess is the rule book will catch up with this unprecedented move. There just is no rule in place at this time.

    Others with factual info, please chime in. I don't have any other info at this time.

    I would assume it depends on if they are over the scholarship limit or # of coaches. If not, what's the difference?

    We have been playing FBS football for years under the 85 scholarships. I am certain we will have the total down to the necessary 63.

    As for coaches, I am uninformed about the rules.

    Huh, Idaho being eligible makes things very interesting. I’m sure most Idaho fans know how the FCS Playoffs work, so how far do you think you guys could potentially go? I’m sure the Vandals will compete for the Big Sky (just based on last year’s talent)

    I appreciate your confidence in our team. It has been a while since we lost to an FCS team (2012). But, Eastern Washington and Montana currently have a couple of streaks against us even while playing FBS football. To be fair, we have to play each game before we can have any expectation of making the playoffs.

    SUU and EWU on back to back weeks is tough. I’d have high expectations for Idaho. The Big Sky is down, but I guess I don’t really know that much about the team. As long as you have a D, you will be okay. I would like to see Idaho make a trip to Huntsville in the near future!
