Boise State University President Bob Kustra just doesn’t get it. It also filters all-the-way through to its supporters. They have a good football team, but when it comes to everything else they just don’t measure up. They are nasty, mean, uninformed and ignorant.
I’m a University of Idaho alum and I bleed silver and gold. It is a great university and I wouldn’t have gone anywhere else. It is also the Land Grant University in the state of Idaho which means that it provides services through its agriculture extension offices throughout the entire state while also focusing its teaching in agriculture, science and engineering.
Because of this, the University of Idaho has an extensive endowment and last year brought in more that $89 million in research funding (that is 74-percent of all research funding of Idaho’s public universities).
The University of Idaho also contributes nearly $1 billion to the Idaho economy on an annual basis. So for $1 of state money given to the University of Idaho, they return $9 to the state economy.

The University of Idaho and Boise State renew their rivalry this weekend. After Idaho dominating the series for 13 straight games in the late 1980’s to early 1990’s, Boise State has taken over and dominated the series since the late 1990’s.
What will the score be?
Everyone is down on Idaho, but I they have been playing a lot better lately. They have been controllling the clock and the defense has been getting some pressure.
But despite all this and all my wishes, I don’t think Idaho will be able to win this game. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be rooting my heart out for the Vandals.
My prediction, Idaho 31 – Boise State 38.
But I hope it is the other way.
The University of Idaho showed courage and strength but a fumble on the opening drive of the second half deflated the Vandals and couldn’t recover losing to the Boise State Broncos 58-14.
The Broncos are good, but not that good, and benefited from some questionable calls. But took advantage of Idaho mistakes and inactivity on field. Teams that win, do that. BSU will have a tough game next week against the Hawaii Rainbows.
If you check out the comments on the Idaho Statesman, you can really see how classless and pathetic the Bronco fans are.
