Idaho State finished the 2023 season 3-8 overall and 3-5 in Big Sky play. It was the first season for the Bengals under head coach Cody Hawkins.

“Playing In Holt Arena this past season was an incredible experience,” Hawkins said. “The opportunity for our student-athletes and our community to come together for another game is a special one, and we look forward to working hard to reward the Bengal faithful with high-quality football for all six games this fall. Playing high-quality opponents at our level helps us gauge our preparedness for the gauntlet that is the Big Sky conference. Better preparation will breed better performance and we are so thankful for Pauline Thiros, ICCU, and the Idaho State administration for giving us this opportunity.

Will the Orange & Black Idaho State Aggies state administrators change their own inferred social ivory tower values over the students in 2024?

Will the ISUni. Bengals post another orthodox social-athletic values losing Season to add to The Intellectual Tradition?

The same behaving coaching playing values as before, will yield the same losing results, not a magical positive thinking academia decreed winning program.

As A Montana State Bobcats Fan would like to wish Idaho State Bengals very best in Big Sky Conference & hopfully they will have A winning season in future.
