UI’s Keo, Farquhar honored by WAC

For the third consecutive week, the Idaho Vandals have had players receive weekly WAC honors. This time it’s safety Shiloh Keo and kicker Trey Farquhar. “The best thing about it is that it means we’ve got guys making plays when it counts,” Idaho coach Robb Akey said in this morning’s teleconference.

Read on more quotes and notes from Akey.


Akey spent at least twice as long on his WAC coaches’ call before getting to the local media. The Vandals are clearly garnering some interest, and for good reason.

As for items of note, Akey also said Daniel Hardy (kidney) is improving but his status is still up in the air for Saturday’s game at San Jose State. “I know this much: I know it’s getting better. And I know this week is a possibility.”

The coach insisted that he’s not surprised by the Vandals’ 4-1 start — their best since 1994 — and that there’s no reason to worry about the team getting overconfident. “Everybody we line up and play (the rest of the year) is a team we didn’t beat last year,” he said.

Akey also expressed how he happy he is with Vandal students, many of whom showed up Saturday well before kickoff. “They were awesome, they were fired up — and we were just warming up. This was an hour before the game. … That’s what it should be like every week.”

On Enderle’s interception on the first possession, Akey said, “He won’t make that mistake again.” As a freshman or sophomore, Akey said, Enderle would have been moping after an INT like that, but he bounced back nicely.
