Welcome Bronco fans to this week's Mikrino Poll. Vandal fan(s), this will all be over soon. This week we explore the so called rivalry between Boise State and Idaho. We'll get to all the reasons this is becoming decidedly less of a rivalry with each new season. But before that, lots of poking fun of and downright lambasting.
You hate me?

The Vandals came to play this year. Unless their opponent has any semblance of a real football team, in which case, they came to "battle back" and almost win.
Even though the scoreboard reads 24-0 on Saturday against a good football team [Fresno State] that we were able to battle back. Our guys believed that we were going to beat the clock and we were going to get the job done there in the second half. So, yeah, I think most definitely we are much better than we have been in the past. - Robb Akey
While we've all talked about the overall series record being 20-17-1, in favor of the Broncos. But let's explore the relevant part of the series, the last ten games. The Broncos have won them, we know that. The important part is how they have won. In dominating fashion. The Broncos have outscored the Vandals 498-174 in those ten games. An average score of 50-17. Average margin of victory of 33 points. What is the spread this week anyway?
Wait there's more. Six of those games the Broncos held Idaho to 14 points or less. Inlcuding last year's 45-10 win.
Face it Idaho, you suck. You've built a reputation of suck, long before Boise State came to slap you around.
Here's the truth for the Vandals and their fans. You don't have to like it. You do have to live with it.
Bronco fans have this to celebrate and treasure;
Idaho fans have this;
AWESOME Vandals!!! AWESOME!
