i predict

4-8 including a loss to future conference foe ewu. but with the move to the big sky i believe idaho football could become relevant again.

Vandals Relevant?

I think you might be over estimating them with a 4-8 season. I think they win 3 at best. If they do go back to the Big Sky as they should I think they will be a middle of the road team and might even have some winning seasons but never will they be top contenders in the Big Sky like they were in the 90s. That boat sailed long ago. Their facilities and location work hard against them. Spears has poor vision and a dismal business plan for the vandals.

Only KTRV is LOCAL

You fry wants with that?

Really?

I think KTRV wants $10,000 to cover costs first. I'd rather watch Friends and How I Met Your Mother.

Then I heartily recommend CABLE or the FIRST-RUN NETWORK source.

You of the PSEUDO AMATEUR CALLSIGN persuasion don't really know much about the costs of operating a BROADCASTING STATION, or so it seems.

You sound like the EXPERIMENTALLY LICENSED type. Can you TRANSLATE this?
