Forget lawmaking - this is football

S-R reporter Meghann Cuniff reports that Vandal football fever spread through the Idaho Statehouse today, as the Senate and House took breaks from their regularly scheduled lawmaking to recognize newly hired University of Idaho football coach Dennis Erickson, who was visiting the Capitol with UI President Tim White.

“Go Vandals,” said Senate Majority Caucus chairman and UI graduate Brad Little, R-Emmett, after he welcomed Erickson back to Idaho. Sen. Gary Schroeder, R-Moscow, left his desk for a moment and was seen having his picture taken with Erickson, who coached the Vandals in the early 1980s and won two national championships with the University of Miami in the 1990s.
