Some Shocking news this morning


There was an abundance of local sports stories in today’s paper, so we wanted to get the links to you as quickly as possible.

The most interesting story comes from columnist John Blanchette, who discovered Shock general manager Adam Nebeker’s post on a Shock message board. Wow. Things must have gotten ugly Saturday night.

The Cougars aren’t the only college football team in the area getting ready for a tremendous test in the opener. The Idaho Vandals have a date at USC, thanks to former head coach – twice removed – Nick Holt, who just happens to be the Trojans’ defensive coordinator now. Dave Trimmer filed this report from Vandals camp.

The high school football season is getting underway in Idaho as well, with defending state 5A champion Lake City trying to fill a myriad of graduation losses.

The Spokane Indians were blown out in the series finale against Salem-Keiser and the Spokane Bandits reached the semifinals of the State AAA Legion tournament.

If you are interested in the Seahawks, here is the P-I’s piece about Marcus Trufant’s future. If you are disinterested in Barry Bonds, don’t miss this Jerry Brewer column about the home run record-setter’s future. If you watched the M’s pound the Orioles last night, you might want to read this Larry LaRue story about Raul Ibanez and his future. And if you are interested in the Huskies, you might want to read this on Carl Bonnell’s past – and future.
