Western Michigan thumps Vandals

Idaho coach Paul Petrino saw but one absolute in the 45-33 shelling his Vandals absorbed at the hands of Western Michigan at the Kibbie Dome on Saturday. “You can say whatever you want about it,” he said, “but they just kicked our butt.”

Idaho’s Florida natives excited to play Gators in The Swamp

What everyone else in college football calls “body bag games” are something entirely different to guys like Richard Montgomery and Jacob Sannon. Of course, there isn’t an underdog out there who thinks he’s auditioning to be a victim. 

Idaho QB candidates don’t have best day

MOSCOW, Idaho – All week, Idaho head football coach Paul Petrino had seen progress. His dueling quarterbacks, Matt Linehan and Chad Chalich, were getting better. On Wednesday morning, in fact, they shared snaps during what Petrino said “might have been the best practice we’ve had since I’ve been here.” But then Saturday morning happened. Chalich and Linehan both threw two interceptions and posted similar numbers in the second scrimmage of fall camp to further cloud the starting quarterback race.

Vandal defenders get a bit physical

MOSCOW, Idaho – Their first practice in full pads isn’t until Thursday. Still, the Idaho Vandals, especially a few rambunctious defensive players, spent much of Monday’s fall camp opener going as close to full tilt as possible for a shirts-and-shorts session. The 11-on-11 team scrimmages got physical at several points – a little too physical for Paul Petrino’s liking. But the second-year coach doesn’t mind the general trend.

Idaho has another new O-line coach

For the fifth consecutive season, the Idaho football team will have a new offensive line coach. Jon Carvin, who held the post last season in Paul Petrino’s first year as head coach, has left the program, the school confirmed on Saturday. He’ll be replaced by offensive coordinator Kris Cinkovich, who will relinquish his role as receivers coach, reported.

G&T Blog Matters: Cougars summer workouts, Mitch Holmberg, Vandal football banned

A sampling from the past week of entries in The Spokesman-Review blog SportsLink at sportslink/ 4: “I think it’s good,” coach Mike Leach said. “It helps you keep track of what guys are up to and I think in particular the freshmen, it gives you the opportunity to get them settled in so there is less culture shock.”

UI’s Epps arrested on DUI charge

Idaho wide receiver Dezmon Epps, who had a breakout junior season in 2013, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence early Sunday morning in Pullman, according to the university’s student newspaper. The arrest occurred at 800 NE Ruby St., adjacent to Stubblefields Bar and Grill, at 1:23 a.m.

Vandals slapped with postseason ban

The common joke on Twitter Saturday morning, after Idaho announced that the NCAA had slapped its football program with a 2014 bowl ban, was the Vandals didn’t need to be ineligible to be out of the running for the postseason.

Petrino excited after Vandals’ grand spring finale

MOSCOW, Idaho – The Idaho Vandals don’t have a clear-cut starting quarterback heading into the summer. But they have playmakers in spades – and a starting defensive front brimming with confidence. Idaho finished their spring with the Silver and Gold game at the Kibbie Dome on Friday night, with Matt Linehan and Chad Chalich looking as close to one another in a nip-and-tuck QB race as they had over the past five weeks.
