    I'm curious about comparing this year to years past (both before you moved up to FBS and then while at the FBS level). You say not much buzz coming out of Moscow. This isn't a sarcastic question I'm serious as I haven't followed your program is this normal? What about before you moved up was there and when you were at the FBS level was there a lot of buzz? Just curious how the fans are looking at the program as compared to years past at both levels.

    Re: Five things to watch as Idaho football opens first spring camp

    Idaho is pretty much an unknown for the upcoming season. Theoretically one would think they would come in and be ultra competitive this season since they are playing with guys they recruited to compete at the FBS level. On the other hand they got the leftover FBS players who didn't get bigger offers and who probably belonged in an FCS program to start with. I would say a .500 record would be realistic with maybe an opportunity for 6-7 wins. Here's a questions with them having to get down from 85-63 scholarships how do they convince everyone eligible to return to come back while taking less scholarship money???

    Re: Five things to watch as Idaho football opens first spring camp

    As for "buzz," we aren't hearing much from even inside our own athletic department. We are in a small town with other small towns surrounding Moscow. Even prior to 1996, the Vandals were routinely covered by local papers during March and April leading to the Spring Football game.

    Here is what our fans think (https://247sports.com/college/idaho/...ootball-103901). There is a split between our fan base of relief of 3-9 seasons and the others that still had hopes of a bowl game every year, which didn't happen. The loss of funding from FBS $, one less home game per year and having to play a DII team each of the next five years due to our commitments to play two FBS teams a year until like 2022 are the biggest complaints.

    As for our 2018 season in the BSC, 6-5 would be realistic since we play Fresno State, Florida and Western New Mexico University. A 7-4 campaign would be success, according to me.

    Here is a YouTube vid. It is more informative about the move down decision resulting from years in the making. Enjoy.
