Anyone want to guess what CML is? True, true, it's got a bunch of different meanings in computing, and if you play the marimba, you would know all about the Classical Marimba League, which is all about the marimba baby! (as a percussion player, I'm all for a little marimba love). But alas, the CML I'm thinking about is the roman numeral for the number 950. So what's that got to do with ISU athletics? Well, 950 is the approximate number of high school football players that were involved in the ISU Football Camp on campus last week, basically 18 high school teams. Want to venture how many of those were from Idaho? Naysayers? Anyone? Bueller? Try seventeen. Yes, 17 of the 18 teams on campus last week were from Idaho.
Yeah....Zamberlin doesn't recruit Idaho....
Speaking of Idaho Nice bit of news with the announcement that Josh Hill originally out of Blackfoot High School is going to be a Bengal. With ISU thin on experience at the tight end position and with the departure of the graduated Trevor Messersmith, Hill has a short to see plenty of action as a freshman. He redshirted last year at Boise State, so he is a 4-for-4 guy, meaning he has four years of eligibility, and four years to play those. Good stuff for the Bengals there...his size is legit.
Facebook! I'm working on a Facebook group thing for ISU, that hopefully I can post stories there for folks (I am now posting my isubengals.com stories there). I get way more comments there than I do here, which is sorta funny.
