    Week 12 Summaries

    The "Battle of Idaho" goes to the Vandals as they invade Bronco Stadium and come away with a hard fought victory : 41-31

    The Vandals improve to 7-3 over all, 5-2 in conference.

    Two "plays of the game", plural... both came from the Vandal's Sr WR Preston Davis as he returned a KO 93 yds in the first qtr. on the Vandals first possession to deflate the Boise State homies. Then... with the game tied up and only 30 seconds left in the first half, Davis roughed up the Boise State secondary on a 56 yd TD reception. He out lept the opposing CB, came down with the ball and then effectively threw the defender to the ground at the 8 yd line. With a multitude of Broncos bearing down on him, he spun around and sprinted into the endzone for the go ahead TD.

    Meanwhile HB Princeton McCarty had another fine day, rushing for 157 yds and 3 TDs. The Vandals also gave FR HB Blake Graham some touches to see how well he might perform in a big game. Graham is expected to take the reigns from McCarty next season and Graham didn't disappoint. He ran for 43 yds on 6 carries. This ball control style offense kept Boise at bay all day long and allowed Qb Brian Reader to have another efficient outing as he passed 11 for 15, 191 yds and 1 TD, no INTs.

    In the press conference after the game, Coach Milmont was asked about giving McCarty a "breather" in both the 3rd and 4th qtrs. "McCarty got nicked up a few games ago vs. #1 Nevada. If you recall, he actually came out of the game twice due to injury that game. Last week vs. Utah State he again came out on an injury for a few plays, and then today in the first half he came out on his own due to a minor injury." Milmont continued..."I gave him a rest in the 3rd a 4th simply to preserve this great weapon we have. Signing HB Blake Graham in the off season was a great victory our program. Graham may very well may the focus of our offense for the next 4 years, so giving McCarty a well deserved breather and allowing Graham to get some touches made sense. We like what we saw in Graham and... truth be told... McCarty really isn't concerned about the EVO heisman chase as much as our loyal fans are. Princeton has clearly stated to the team behind closed doors that he wants to help this program to the next level and being around for a bowl game to help the team win is the number one priority."

    If the Vandals are in control of their remaining games, you can expect to see Graham some more. FR QB Justin Terry is also expected to see a little time moving fwd as the coaches would like to see him in action under real time pressure. One x factor for the Vandals moving fwd. is Soph - DE Henry Poole. Poole was signed as a 3 star recruit and had a mega impact as a true freshman. In this, his SOPH year, he is playing far beyond anyone's expectations. NFL scouts have been spotted around Moscow and fans are starting to wonder if Poole is going to stay. It would be a huge leap for Poole to leave for the NFL after this season, and he hasn't indicated anything of the sort, but Poole is already a projected as a late first round pick if he were to jump. The coaches are dismissing any questions about him leaving as nonsense.

    Western Michigan falls to Temple 42-38. WMU had a 38-28 lead with under 2 mins left, but the robo Owls showed up, a quick touchdown and an onside kick recovery which bounced of the hands of my players twice and then a missed scoop. Temple would drive and score again leaving WMU with roughly 40 secs left to play. Multiple wide open drops in those final few seconds, including one wide wide open drop in the endzone cost us...let's hope we still make it to the MAC CCG

    Does this put Frisk back up there with a slight glimmer of hope?
