With all the conference realignment, Robb Akey and Idaho have been left out of the shuffle, and Akey admits that's left quite the chip on his shoulder.
"We are the unwanted red-headed stepchild, no offense to any redheads. Nobody seems to want the Vandals right now."
"I promise you that's got a chip on my shoulder."
After this season, their last competing in the now seven team WAC, Idaho will go independent next season and hopes to find a new conference home soon.
