Statement from Idaho in regards to Friday’s SBOE meeting

The Idaho State Board of Education is set to meet this Friday about the future of athletics at the University of Idaho.

While there has not been an official announcement from the university, all signs point towards the Vandals going independent in football, with all other sports joining the Big Sky Conference.

Here is the statement released by Idaho today:

"We appreciate the State Board of Education’s consideration of our proposal for President M. Duane Nellis and Director of Athletics Rob Spear to explore what is best for the future of Vandal athletics, our student-athletes and our fans. Our priority continues to be to provide the best experience for our students, alumni and fans within a collegiate sports environment."
