It wasn’t until October last fall that the University of Idaho football team’s identity – potent, if slow-starting, on offense and vulnerable on defense – fully materialized. What will the Vandals’ M.O. be this season? Quarterback Nathan Enderle isn’t sure, but he hopes it doesn’t take as long to find out. “About midway through last year was when we started to click on all cylinders and put up some numbers,” the fourth-year starter said. “Hopefully we start with the first game and continue with that. Ramp it up a little bit earlier than last year, I guess.” The first opportunity for Enderle and the Vandals to see how much of a carryover effect there will be from a terrific 2009 campaign comes tonight, when they host North Dakota at the Kibbie Dome. Kickoff for the season opener – UI’s first time starting the season in Moscow since 1998 — is 6 p.m/Josh Wright, SportsLink. More here.
