Eleven recent University of Idaho football players trying to impress about 20 NFL scouts at the UI Pro Day Thursday at least convinced the NFL visitors they can play late in the season in inclement weather.
In its first year with the two-tiered letter of intent signing, and in its first recruiting cycle since returning to the Big Sky Conference, Idaho football addressed current needs on the offensive and defensive lines and a future need at linebacker.
Idaho’s first experience with the new NCAA early signing period for football had coaches “pressing a little bit harder earlier” to get players signed.
Idaho’s 22-year venture in FBS has resulted in an 85-174 cumulative record and three bowl wins, including the Famous Idaho Potatoes Bowl last year. After losing five league games by a combined 24 points in a star-crossed season, though, there will be no bowl for the Vandals this year.
As Idaho searches for fuel to fire its efforts in the final two games of a season in which it has no hope of going to a bowl, New Mexico State is adopting a different tactic.
The status of University of Idaho senior quarterback Matt Linehan, who suffered a hand or wrist injury to his throwing arm late in the Vandals’ 24-21 loss to the University of Troy on Saturday, remains undecided as the Vandals head into a bye week.
In future years, when all the games have been played and all the statistics that are making Kaden Elliss an anomaly in Idaho football have been compiled, the origin of the effort to add offense to the standout linebacker’s resume may be recalled differently.
One week at a time. This is what Idaho’s season has come to.
Saturday’s nonconference football game between visiting Idaho and Missouri is a reset button for somebody.
After dominating Appalachian State through the early third quarter, building a 20-0 lead, the key for Idaho pulling an upset against the Sun Belt Conference defending co-champion was whether time ran out before the Vandals’ luck did.
After coming up just short in a 21-16 homecoming loss to Louisiana-Lafayette, Idaho faces a Sun Belt Conference perennial elite.
One subset of Idaho’s football team is not only upholding a pillar of scoring from seasons past but has taken the team’s “raise the bar” motto to heart.
Homecoming tightened in intensity for the Idaho Vandals as they attempted to dig themselves out of a 21-10 third-quarter hole against Louisiana-Lafayette Saturday in the Kibbie Dome.
In three of its four games this year, Louisiana-Lafayette has lit up the scoreboard.
Sophomore tight end Joe Wysocki introduced himself to Idaho’s offense against UNLV last week with a 53-yard catch.
When Idaho hosts UNLV on Saturday, Vandals coach Paul Petrino believes his team is more likely to face the Rebels who took UI to overtime last year than the team that got rolled 43-40 by 45-point underdog Howard last week.
As a coach at seven colleges and one NFL team, Paul Petrino honed a deep knowledge of football. It would have uniquely qualified him to appreciate his son Mason’s prowess as a high school quarterback. However, because of his work, the coach rarely got to see Mason play.
From a team that won only one game as recently as 2014, to one that showed it could win, with a 4-8 record in 2015, to one that expects to win, the Vandals have been trending upward in fifth-year coach Paul Petrino’s tenure.
In most instances, a 2-9 team would not be expected to offer the sternest of tests in the opening game of the next season.
