Google just posted a link to a news story from the Idaho-Press Tribune regarding the preseason games for the College of Idaho. The I-PT apparently reported that the College of Idaho would play Boise State and Gonzaga during a four day stretch of time.

But when you hit the Google link to this story (as of 4:06 Pacific DS time, at least) the link reports the following:

One way to view this circumstance is that the I-PT report was incorrect, and pulled by the I-PT for that reason. Another is that the report was correct, but the release of info was premature. I prefer this latter explanation.

Anyone have info on our pre-season opponents?

It would make sense. Easy travel for them, and IF I recall correctly, they're respectable NAIA team.

interesting. I think this makes too much sense not to be true.

It's really hard for me to get excited about this. Do you really want me to resarch this. Should I be mare happy if it doesn't happen? There is a place for sarcasm.
