The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

Idaho quar­ter­back Matt Line­han took time out from cel­e­brat­ing the Van­dals’ bowl vic­tory to crit­i­cize his school’s down­ward move to the Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship Sub­di­vi­sion.

“We be­long in FBS, pe­riod. That’s what I be­lieve, that’s what ev­ery­one be­lieves,” Line­han said dur­ing an ESPN Ra­dio in­ter­view af­ter Idaho’s 61-50 vic­tory over Colorado State in the Fa­mous Idaho Po­tato Bowl in Boise.

“We know we can com­pete, we be­long here. No mat­ter what any­one thinks, even our tone-deaf pres­i­dent. Maybe he doesn’t think we be­long here, but I think we be­long here,” Line­han said mo­ments af­ter earn­ing MVP hon­ors in the win.
