Vandals Taking Scrimmage Seriously

Really, it's just a dressed-up scrimmage four-plus months before the season. Yet Idaho is treating tonight's spring football finale like a “real” game, with 15-minute quarters, clock stoppage and all. First-year coach Paul Petrino said he hopes to run 200 plays – or “as many plays as we can” – when the Vandals congregate at 6 p.m. at the Kibbie Dome. That's only slightly more than the team chugged through in its second of three scrimmages two weeks ago. Petrino has introduced the Vandals to an intricate playbook in daily installments. He's pleased with how the players have digested it, but he said the summer months will also be crucial/Josh Wright, SR. More here.

Question: Are you excited about the coaching change and the 2013 Idaho Vandal football season?
