      Well, the two D-2′s, and two D-1AA’s make it very manageable……

      No it’s not. Come on dude, that is a weak schedule! TAMC? You joking me? You don’t really know football that well buddy.
      Go Vandals!

    Well they are still playing two unknown schools. I guess they have to have two guaranteed wins. (like McMurry in 2012). A good example of moving into the FBS , but not really.

    Over all I think Idaho has the hardest schedule in the WAC with nonconf games at LSU, North Carolina, and BYU. that is pretty daunting. To be honest Idaho will crush Texas State and UTSA.
