The University of Idaho put so much money behind the renovation of the Kibbie Dome they used the term "monies" to describe how much was donated and used to spiff it up. But is what they put on the field worth what they spent in the stands?

The year 2009 was a magical year for the Vandals. They won the Humanitarian Bowl in grand fashion on the blue turf. One would think that 2010 would be even better… except it wasn't. It didn't happen and it was very disappointing. They got blown out by Hawaii, blown out by Nevada, and blown out again in a rivalry game with Boise State.

Robb Akey said this year the Vandals will be ready to go. They'll have to start on the defensive end, as Idaho was ranked 95th in the nation last year. Defense wins championships.

If the money spent on improving the Vandals venue is going to be worth it, things have to change right away. This year, for the first time in a long time, they have two home games in a row to start the season. If they don't win those games there will be a lot of people in the new Litehouse Center who are going to be saying, "wow, I guess 'monies' can't buy everything."

Unless you're USC.
