Erickson’s search for answers isn’t as tough as some


Dennis Erickson is searching for answers – and offense. The University of Idaho coach, however, doesn't think the way to answer those questioning his offense is to change quarterbacks, according to Jim Meehan's WAC notebook in today's S-R.

Meehan points out Idaho doesn't have the most questions offensively in the WAC, and it certainly isn't making the biggest changes. Those laurels would rest at Utah State. The Aggies have yet to score an offensive touchdown and Monday, their offensive coordinator resigned. There's more on this in a story at the Idaho Statesman.

The Vandals travel to Logan, Utah for a noon game against the Aggies on Saturday.


Brett Bergstrom kicked four field goals in the Eagles' Big Sky game at Montana State, a key component in EWU's first victory of the season. For his efforts the conference named him the Special Teams Player of the Week. But, according to Dave Trimmer's story, he would have rather not won the award. Why? Because he came to Eastern hoping to be a wide receiver or a safety, not a kicker.

The Eagles host Sacramento State on Saturday at 2 p.m. The game will be broadcast on 1510 AM.


If you didn't see the link below, I'll run it again here. It's about Prosser quarterback Kellen Moore, who has decided to attend Boise State. His other two finalists, according to this Herald-Republic story, were Idaho and EWU.
