        pretty accurate. SJSU was not going to pay Idaho $550,000. They tend to pay FCS schools the minimum. Nobody in San Jose wants to see Idaho, whatever their level. UC Davis, or Cal Poly would get more interest. And they can pay North Dakota, Portland State, or as they did recently New Hampshire considerably less

        For Idaho it’s not only more money than SJSU would give them to convert the series to revenue trips to San Jose without return, but it’s also a game close to home where their own fans will attend. For WSU with Idaho as an FCS school it’s now cheap enough for them to schedule it.

        Idaho with this cancellation now has room for 8 Big Sky games on an 11 game FCS schedule in 2018, 2019, 2020 while collecting some serious revenue. Pretty much a win for everyone.

        I expect the Indiana series and the Penn State game to fall off the schedule next. The rest will probably remain, although LSU has leverage in their contract to force a lower fee negotiation if they want (but why bother?)

      Nevada is the only FBS school still scheduled to visit Idaho beyond 2017. And that game will likely be canceled too.

      Glad that SJS cancelled this series…..rather play a FBS school or a FCS school closer to home.

      Not dissing Central Michigan, but the Cougars are scheduling for nothing more than a chance for an at-large berth in a mid-December bowl game. This season’s game versus Rutgers game will be Wazoo’s last with a P5 OOC opponent until 2022. Probably will have gone through two more coaches by then. Tough to establish a competitive program in Pullman. Besides the Pac 12 revenue, the Cougs would be much better off in the MWC.

      In 2019 Wazoo plays 9 p5 teams in conference plus byu which most consider a p5 equivalent; that’s more power 5 games than Baylor plays or most Sec schools so I don’t think the gripe has merit. If Wsu is competing for a playoff spot then maybe different story.

      Washington state in the pac12 where they have 100 year rivalry with the northwest schools along with the opportunity to be in a conference with great academic institutions such as Stanford, Cal-Berkeley , UCLA.
      Not to mention the revenue they receive. The idea of them giving that up is ridiculous.
