Only One of 12 Schools!

POCATELLO, Idaho- The Idaho State men's basketball team had five student-athletes named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court. The five Bengal student-athletes named to the Honors Court were Erik Nakken, Novak Topalovic, Lyle Sutton, Balint Mocsan and Jared Stutzman. Of the ...

Re: Big Sky Pre-Season Polls

I’m biased, obviously, but I picked the Bengals to finish 8th. I think coaches will pay a price for their votes. We have a tough schedule but we should be better than last year.

Re: Hero Sports: Idaho State Preview

It would add to their credibility if they knew this was Phen’s second year as head coach.

New black uniforms and "black" helmets!

They won't wear them often, but the Bengals will look super sharp in these!

Re: Walker and Maker Now Official

Individual workouts with coaches are taking place. Players can scrimmage, but no coaching.

Re: Bengal Won-Loss Records, 1978-2017(FWIW)

For any of you that believe that ISU Athletics isn't doing anything to try and raise some major dollars, why don't you give Joe Borich at call at 208-282-3447 and arrange to meet with him and talk about how busy he is as being the guy tasked with doing just what you're talking about. Joe came to ISU...

Re: Bengal Won-Loss Records, 1978-2017(FWIW)

To my knowledge, Frank Vandersloot and Melaleuca have no interest at all in ISU. I've tried to acquire some financial support for a major KISU FM event and could barely get a meeting.

Heartbreaking Loss

It was incredibly joyful, yet heartbreaking few days for Bengal Jim Potter. He celebrated the high school graduation of his daughter, Emma Lou, on Friday. Tragically, his father, Andrew, died in a one-car accident near Pocatello Sunday. I'm sure all of you will join me in praying for the Potter fami...

Re: Bengal Won-Loss Records, 1978-2017(FWIW)

If spending is max'ed, then mismanagement has to be considered. Or, after four decades, the hole is so deep, it would take another forty years to get out of the hole. I don't see mismanagement. Not, at least, by the current AD. I can tell you that every dollar spent undergoes close scrutiny before ...

Re: Bengal Won-Loss Records, 1978-2017(FWIW)

I certainly have seen my share of losing seasons since coming to ISU in 1982, and have been blessed to call some of those great games (Globe of Death, Selto's winning TD KO Return at Boise State, etc.). I will not pretend to know exactly all of the reasons for prolonged losing. I also understand the...

Tanner has a great upside! Gotta love what Coach Merkley is doing with track. I think the Bengals had 3 or 4 individual champions.

Re: ISU Women's Softball

One thing I can say is the athletic department has never sent me here to "put out fires". Ever. Gordy Presnell ??? The women's basketball coach at BSU? I think you mean Gordon Henderson, who left ISU for Arkansas for a few years and who is now Exec. Dir. of the Ohio South Youth Soccer Association. I...

Re: ISU Women's Softball

I'm not going to make any excuses for this season. I will comment on some things, however. No one feels the pain of this year as much as the players and coaches feel it. It is VERY easy to sit back and criticize from a safe distance. How many of us are "involved" with the program? Are we contributin...
