Seven years ago Idaho had three future NFL linemen on the starting unit (Jake Scott and Rick DeMulling drafted by Colts, plus free agent Patrick Venzke). It has taken years to rebuild the depth chart, but with mountainous guard MIKE IUPATI among its emerging leaders, the Vandal line is getting back to form. 2047 PAT HAUGE Wed, 14 Nov 2007 04:59:00 GMT 0 205 Idaho idaho Mike Iupati Scout OT Billy Bates: Seeing a lot of reps as #1 RT Hot News for OT Billy Bates 2047 PAT HAUGE Mon, 27 Aug 2007 00:14:36 GMT 1 205 Idaho idaho SPRING NOTEBOOK: Report #1 Senior middle linebacker JO ARTIS RATTI, sporting a new jersey number (now wearing #1), and the rest of the Vandals ushered in the Robb Akey era with the start of spring drills this weekend.
