1. Pursue membership with another FBS conference, such as the Mountain West, Sun Belt, Conference USA or MAC.
2. Place the Idaho football program in an FBS conference and keep other sports within what is left of the Western Athletic Conference.
3. Pursue football independence.
4. Consider dropping to the Football Championship Subdivision and join a conference like the Big Sky.
As of option No. 1, the Sun Belt, led by former WAC commissioner Karl Benson, has already said no to the Vandals. No other conference has come out to express any serious interest.
Option number three is near impossible at best. Go ask BYU how hard independence can be. It's hard. Really hard.
The fourth option, joining the Big Sky, appears to be the Vandals best option. And why not? They once ruled the Big Sky before following in Big Brother's (Boise State) footsteps and jumping up to the big leagues.
