Good Morning Vandal Nation: Nov. 16, 2009

16 Nov

A weekend that began with such promise for Vandal sports ended with a couple big disappointments. The Vandals upset Utah on Friday night to open the hoops season, but things went upside down from there.

On Saturday, Idaho was blasted by No. 6 Boise State in the rivalry game, 63-25, and the volleyball team was handed its first home conference loss by No. 3 Hawaii. Last night, the Vandals were upset themselves on the hardwood, by an upstart Texas Southern team that forced 18 Idaho turnovers.

We hope the week to come is a happier one for Vandal sports — it’s been a weekend to forget.

It’s a bye week for football, but tonight, Idaho’s women open their hoops season against Gonzaga in Memorial Gym at 7 p.m. Let’s pack the gym and support the Vandal women!

On Thursday, volleyball closes out the WAC regular season with a home match against Boise State at 7 p.m.

Then, on Saturday, the Vandal men travel to Fargo, N.D. to take on the North Dakota State Bison at 2 p.m. We’ll be courtside with live coverage as Mac Hopson, Steffan Johnson and the rest try to get their season back on track.

      Just a comment from listening to the feed on Vandals Xtra..it would be nice if the announcer would let the listeners know at various times the guys who are on the court, it was hard to know who was playing and who was sitting..I know when you were blogging live you would list who was on the court, thanks for that..Just giving a little feedback if maybe you could pass it on..Don’t keep us guessing…Thanks
