Idaho QB: “We belong in FBS.”
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.
