THE VANDALS SUFFERED THEIR FOURTH LOSS OF THE 2012 SEASON, this time a heart wrenching 40-37 overtime loss to Wyoming in the Kibbie Dome. Following the game Vandals Dominique Blackman, Mike Scott, and Quayshawne Buckley, as well as head coach Robb Akey, met with the media to discuss this game, what went right, what went wrong, and how to keep building for the next game at North Carolina.

THE VANDALS, FIGHTING FOR THEIR FIRST WIN OF THE 2012 SEASON, had their best shot yet against Wyoming. Unfortunately for Idaho (0-4), it would be Wyoming (1-3) getting away with the victory as the Cowboys connected for a touchdown in overtime to topple the Vandals 40-37 in Moscow. Idaho ammassed 509 yards of total offense, by far their best effort yet. But big Cowboy plays were the difference.

DESPITE BEING DOWN TO THE NO.3 LSU TIGERS AT HALFTIME BY A SLIM 28-14 MARGIN, the Vandals could not keep up in the second half as the Tigers rolled to a 63-14 victory. Idaho had its highlights, including an electrifying 94-yard interception return by safety GARY WALKER to start the second quarter, which led to a Blackman-to-LaGrone TD that cut LSU's lead to 14-7. But the Tigers were too much.

IN HIS FIRST START OF THE 2012 SEASON FOR THE VANDALS, junior quarterback Dominique Blackman was effective at moving the Idaho offense as he went an impressive 30-of-37 for 352 yards, with one touchdown and an interception. But Idaho (0-2) had trouble punching it into the endzone at Bowling Green (1-1), settling for redzone field goals until Marquan Major connected with Blackman in the fourth.

WITH FALL CAMP RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER we set our focus on the 2012 Vandal football team. At quarterback two juniors - right hander Taylor Davis and lefty Dominique Blackman - spent the spring digesting Idaho's new look offense and take their battle into fall. First year offensive coordinator Jason Gesser talked to GVN at the end of spring and made it clear what he needs from his field general.
