View Full Version : The Low-Low on Idaho

From ESPN's WAC ShootAround--

"Don Verlin, a longtime assistant to Stew Morrill at Utah State, takes over a program in need of an overhaul. The Vandals finished 8-21 (5-11 WAC) last season, and that was a big improvement from the 4-27 (1-15) showing the previous season. Luis Augusto, a 6-8, 245-pound senior, is the most experienced returning player, but he averaged just 2.4 points in 17 starts. Junior Jordan Brooks, the team's leading scorer with 12.4 ppg, was dismissed. Verlin will rely on three guards -- Mac Hopson, Trevor Morris and Kashif Watson -- and 6-10 Marvin Jefferson in the middle."

Just brutal being an Idaho fan.

Yeah, it's been a long, hard fall from the days when guys like Orlando Lightfoot and Riley Smith were rocking the rim. I saw Lightfoot nail a jumper from about 30 feet against BSU at Boise. When he fired it up, the whole crowd gasped, like when Ammo drilled that long-distance 3 against the Dons at USF a few years back.

I'd bet on another 300 + RPI year for the Vandals... I don't begrudge GU one or 2 of those a year, but I just hope no team in the conference goes that low this season.
