Idaho dismisses two players
MOSCOW, Idaho -- The University of Idaho says two football players have been dismissed for violating team rules and a third has been suspended for violating athletic department policy.
Blackman started seven games this season for the Vandals, passing for 230 yards a game with nine touchdowns. Scheidt started three games, making nine solo tackles and assisting on 14 others.
Athletic director Rob Spear fired coach Robb Akey on Oct. 21, a day after the Vandals lost 70-28 to Louisiana Tech and fell to 1-7. Idaho is coming off an off week, with its next game Saturday at home against San Jose State.
