We’re slightly belated today by a couple interviews and projects in the hopper this morning, so let’s get right to your links.
- The Vandal women lost their season-opener at home last night, reports The Argonaut’s Ilya Pinchuk.
- Hawaii’s Roderick Flemings got named WAC Player of the Week, but his Rainbow Warriors fell apart in the closing stages of a nationally-televised ESPN College Hoops Tip-Off game last night, losing to Northern Colorado.
- I’ve got an Argonaut game story on the Vandals’ opening victory at Utah, but the lede got butchered in the editing process. The opening should read: Utah Utes coach Jim Boylen told the media Friday night’s game between his squad and Don Verlin’s Idaho Vandals was “Idaho’s Super Bowl.” If that’s so, then give the Vandals the Lombardi Trophy right now.

- The Refraction makes its WAC picks for tonight.
- The Reno Gazette-Journal’s Chris Murray previews the Wolf Pack/Rebels rivalry game.

- Dave Southorn of the Idaho Press-Tribune looks at the Aggies/Broncos matchup.
- The Argonaut’s Lisa Short previews the Vandals/Broncos volleyball grudge match, set for Thursday.
