WAC's Demise Raises Concern for U. of Idaho

May 3, 2012

Realignment is changing the face of college football.  The latest evidence of that came yesterday at a press conference in San Marcos, Texas.  That’s where Texas State University President Denise Traught announced her school will move to the Sun Belt Conference.   

But one conference’s gain, is another’s loss.  The Bobcats are leaving the Western Athletic Conference – also known as the WAC.  Several other schools are too.  So many in fact, that after the dust settles, only two football-playing schools are expected to remain. 

One of those is the University of Idaho.   And the apparent demise of the WAC has raised serious questions about the future of football in Moscow.  KBSX’s Scott Graf spoke with Brian Murphy, a sportswriter for The Idaho Statesman about what’s next for the Vandal program.
