Update, 4:28 p.m.: Idaho athletic director Rob Spear just tweeted: "Event Friday not about conference, facilities, games it's about Homecoming and another Vandal tradition for the Vandal family"
Update: I am hearing that the "change" is a change to the Vandals' logo.
Original post: Give the University of Idaho credit for drumming up suspense, intrigue and interest through a cryptic message posted on the school's official athletic site.
Along with the photo (see below) are these words:

• So what kind of change is coming? New uniforms? New conference? New nickname? New facility project? Naming rights to the Kibbie Dome? Are the Vandals moving "south" — as implied by the geese — and holding some games in Boise?
The Vandals are keeping us guessing.
Hope it's something major since I really like the stealth nature of the promotion. But I'm prepared to be disappointed.
