Huckleberries: Craig’s new GOP job prompts potshot

Wonkette, the left-leaning online mag, said the selection of former U.S. Sen. Larry Craig to be finance chair for the Idaho Republican Party is “an inspiring holiday story of forgiveness and redemption.” Wonkette, of course, was being sarcastic. In a recent article, Wonkette’s Doctor Zoom continued: “It’s heartening to know that even after Craig was arrested in 2007 and charged with soliciting sex in a bathroom stall in the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, then ordered to pay the Treasury Department roughly $242,000 after using campaign funds to cover his legal defense, Idaho Republicans are still willing to give Sen. Widestance a second chance.”

Idaho’s Austin Rehkow, Josh McCain honored by Sun Belt

Final home game for 19 Idaho seniors

Senior Day is here for 19 Vandals, but it's once again time for Idaho to graduate from baby-step progress and figure out how to get it done in winning time.

Vandals end 13-game skid

MOSCOW, Idaho – The football losses may have piled up like leaves under an autumn maple at the University of Idaho, but there are happy hangovers in the tailgate lot today. And this new streak to chew on: Quarterback Chad Chalich is 2-0 at homecoming.

Chalich directs win for Vandals

Last year's starting quarterback was Saturday's steady relief, as Chad Chalich steered the Idaho Vandals to a 29-17 victory over New Mexico State that snapped a 13-game losing streak – the longest in FBS – in front of an announced crowd of 15,207 at the Kibbie Dome.

Huckleberries: Out-of-towner awe a reminder of Coeur d’Alene’s beauty

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.

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.

Lots of offense shown in Vandals’ marathon scrimmage

MOSCOW, Idaho – Three-quarters of the way through a nearly three-hour scrimmage on Saturday, Idaho quarterback Chad Chalich’s throwing shoulder started to tire. This was understandable on a number of levels. After all, Chalich and Matt Linehan took all the snaps during the 190-play scrimmage – the first of the spring for the Vandals. And the redshirt sophomore from Coeur d’Alene missed the last five full games of 2013 after injuring that same shoulder.
