Idaho athletic director Rob Spear was scheduled to fly Tuesday from Moscow to Boise to attend booster functions before Saturday's Idaho-Boise State game. Upon his arrival at the airport, he learned that the plane taking him to Boise was Horizon's new Boise State-themed Q400.
"I went to the counter and asked to fly out of Spokane instead," said Spear, who then drove over two hours to Spokane.
Spear arrived late to his appointments but his decision was applauded by Vandal faithful.
"I want to be clear this wasn't meant as a disrespect for Boise State, I just told the Horizon people that I would fly on that plane only after they paint an Idaho plane too."
Thanks to Ryan.
