Verlin's opening statement to the media after the heartbreaker at home dealt with the officiating, and you can see the video from Vandal Nation:
So Coach, tough loss, huh?
"Brutal. Absolutely brutal. A poorly officiated game. I don't care if the WAC fines me or not. That was a poorly officiated game.
"The WAC office will hear from me tomorrow. Like I told the people on the radio, Idaho is no longer a doormat. We're a contender in this league, and the officials need to figure it out."
Idaho is 3-8 in the WAC, entered the game in seventh place and stayed in seventh after the loss. The Vandals are 11-12 overall.
