Head Over Heels for ISU Athletics!

Well we had a pretty good crowd on Friday for the ISU soccer game, and boy did they get their money's worth. Idaho State scored with just 16 seconds left in the second overtime to win the game, running the teams' undefeated streak at home to 13 straight, going 10-0-3 in the process, the longest such streak in school history, and stretching back to 2006.

However, the real fun at the ISU soccer games is the flip throw-in. The Bengals have two players who can do it in Alex Hanson (that's her in the picture), and Jen Munro. Definitely an eye-opener.

Anyways, here is Katie Zigars' detailed release on the exciting opener, and Tim Flagstad of the Journal had this take. KIDK, KIFI, and KPVI also had reports (those all are viewed best with internet explorer by the way). Also, Flagstad did a nice piece on an interesting Utah connection for some of the players.

It's Game Week for Football
Lots of football stuff coming up. The Idaho Statesman has a ton of stuff from this weekend. Chadd Cripe has a pretty good rundown of the new rules that are in play, and then the Statesman has season previews on both Boise State and Idaho State. Also, Dan Thompson checked in with a great historical piece on the three interstate schools and their rivalry.

Game Notes Lives
It's irreverent, it's silly, it's my chance to be silly for television folks...yes, it's Game Notes, and they are back for week one of the 2008 season. Seriously though, go here, click the link, and enjoy. As soon as Boise State's notes are live I'll link to them here. Same for the Big Sky notes.

Shout Out from the Esteemed Mr. Lukas
Paul Lukas of's Uniwatch is running his NCAA college uniform college this week, but the editors at have stated it will be for FBS schools only. Paul however, ran all of the information on Idaho State's changes, including the first look at the road jersey, on his must-read site. The Idaho State information is in the ticker, but make sure you read about the uni-snafu from yesterday, where Adam Everett's jersey said "MINNESTOA" ... classic.

Volleyball gets ready with scrimmage
The volleyball team looked much improved in their scrimmage on Saturday, and here are the stats and stuff.
