RENO, Nevada – At various points in their high school careers, Isaac Dotson and Teondray Caldwell made the decision to play football at Nevada. Tonight they finally make good on their promises, but not in the way they originally intended. Caldwell signed with the Wolf Pack out of high school but never enrolled, playing instead at Washington State where he is now a second-string safety after playing two seasons at running back. Dotson was going to be the next electric dual-threat quarterback in coach Chris Ault’s pistol offense at Nevada, but when Ault left the Wolf Pack, so did Dotson, switching his allegiance to the Cougars. He too will line up at safety against what were once his future teammates.
So there I was passing the Hagadone Corp. HQ during my noon walk along the Coeur d’Alene waterfront Thursday when I heard one 40ish woman say to another: “It’d be nice to have a map so we knew where we were.” I stopped and asked: “Are you looking for a particular place?” They eyed me suspiciously and disregarded my question. “Is that the visitor’s center over there?” one asked. I told them it was. Then, they asked about the name of the big hotel nearby. I told them it was the Coeur d’Alene Resort (and was wondering how they’d gotten to the waterfront without knowing that). I asked them where they were from. “California,” they responded (which explained their fear of friendly strangers, I suppose). Finally, they said: “This is an amazing place. I bet you feel lucky living here.” I told them I did consider myself fortunate to have landed in this place 30 years ago and thoroughly enjoy it, sun or no sun. ’Tis fun being envied by others simply for living in the Lake City.

The Detroit Lions have hired coach Jim Caldwell. The team confirmed the move Tuesday and has scheduled a news conference at Ford Field today. San Diego Chargers assistant and former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt was seemingly Detroit’s top choice, but he chose to take the head coaching job at Tennessee on Monday night. The Lions are giving Caldwell another chance to be an NFL head coach. He helped the Indianapolis Colts play in the Super Bowl after his debut season in 2009 and was fired two years later after a 2-14 season while Peyton Manning was injured, dropping his three-year mark to 26-22. “We believe Jim is the right man to lead our team and deliver a championship to our fans,” Lions owner William Clay Ford said in a statement. – AP
