Couple of notes for folks....first of all, a women's basketball schedule! Yeah!!!! The Jounral had some thoughts on the road-heavy slate. Also, Jana Davis-Boehler will only be out a few games with a strain of her knee. The MRI came back negatory, which was good to hear ... this is gonna sound funny, but she was in too much pain coming off the field for it to be a torn ACL. I've seen enough of them to know by this point.
Previews, previews....the best part of a movie. Now, far be it for me to say this, but sometimes...just sometimes, beat writers drink the Kool Aid, whatever, and don't have realistic thoughts of the teams they cover. However, the Missoulian's football writer is Fritz Neighbor, who is one of the best in the business, and one of the fairest reporters out there, and he has his preview of Idaho State running today, and it's a pretty solid, fair assessment. Personally, I think .500 is attainable, but it's a solid piece. Take Idaho. The Vandals have lost 16 of their last 17, and they open at Arizona, so that's a tough one. The only win out of those 17 games was an FCS team by the way, and they've won three FCS games since the end of the 2005 season. It is for those reasons that I decry that whoever put this together for the Times News in Twin Falls must be a Vandal graduate.
Bronco Bits Neil Lomax's son has decided that the writing is on the wall with a freshman QB, so he will be transferring. Also, a couple of other Broncos have been suspended for the game on Saturday for the all-encompassing violation of team rules. And while some folks might want to know what those violations are, I'm gonna say good for BSU and coach Petersen (a rock-solid, stand up guy by the way) for holding his players accountable. Just another chance to teach .... Also, BSU's Game Notes are online here (the link is at the bottom of the page).
BigSkyTV Rhymes with Free!!! In keeping with giving a treat to the blogger-fans out there, the Big Sky blog announced this little doozy ... nice huh? Jon Kasper and his crew hear all ....
I did a Podcast! Other Bengals did Regular Radio It should be here in the next day or so....I did it while cooking my daughter a hamburger. Seriously. Also, Jeff Caves and Mike Prater are talking with John Zamberlin tomorrow, as well as Russel Hill, Mitch Rudder, and Jayson Bird today, and those will be on KTIK's page, and run on the afternoon drive show, so go here to check that out as well
