So this is GOLDEN to watch how Stoops handles this whole situation from start to finish. Thanks for the update!
& Josh Malone got his charges dropped so he can enter the NFL draft now.
Is this the last year the Vandals are in the FBS? For some reason I can't remember if it's Idaho or Wyoming who is leaving the FBS - would be strange if it was Wyoming given their come-back season in 2016.
Idaho is heading to FCS in 2018.
New Mexico State is being kicked out of the Sun Belt following this season.
The departure of these teams opened the door for Coastal Carolina to join the Sun Belt from FBS and also give the conference a Championship game.
Makes sense all around.... Idaho and NMSU were the 2 farthest schools travel wise for the league. Idaho will join the Big Sky conference in FCS which is also the home to Eastern Washington and Montana who are normal powerhouses. They have had some talented players in past few years... I think interest in the program will be higher with them playing some geographic rivals.
I'm guessing NMSU will go independent as they already have 6 games set up for 2018 against teams from various conferences.
