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

    I wish he had highlighted the likely positives of Idaho's move to FCS but that wasn't the main point of his video. A good video overall though.

    I think absolute worst case scenario, Idaho is a perennial middle of the pack Big Sky school that occasionally hunts for a playoff spot every 5 or so years. That's still .500 football and an improvement from where they were for the last 20 years in FBS. That's worst case.

    They could possibly be a good Big Sky team that regularly challenges UM, MSU, EWU, WSU, etc. When you start winning more and experience more meaningful, regional football that you can physically go to games more often, fans will start to come around.

    I wouldn't be surprised if more Idaho fans start showing up than they have in the last 20 years if they start posting regular 7+ win seasons. That's not something Moscow, ID is used to.

    Your 3rd paragraph is most likely to me. They will strive to be a peer and complete and beat EWU, UM, MSU and that should make them more in the mix for the top. They are suited financially to be able to compete there or at least were before 1995. Idaho was a force it IAA in most years and they recruited really good skill players, lines, etc. I would think they go back to that more than middle of the pack.
