Idaho Vandals 2012 Preview

The Vandals are at a crossroads with head coach Rob Ackey. He has a 19-43 record heading into season 6 of his tenure, and he has to win now in order to remain there next season. The offense seems to be in shambles unless some big time play makers can be found, and that is not evident right now. The defense suffered somewhat against the run last season, but they were abysmal against the pass, ranking just 111th in that area last fall. Again, play makers must be found, and only Gary Walker looks like a front line star right now. The other question is an off-field issue. Idaho and New Mexico State are the only known entities involved with the WAC after 2012, and they have received no rock solid invite anywhere else. The only conference talking to Idaho right now would be the Big Sky, and that would mean stepping back to FCS football. This is actually something that Idaho is seriously considering at this time. All in all, I don't see things getting much better, with only 3 locks for wins on this schedule. READ MORE
