Vandal Football players turn on the energy that turns into scuffle
MOSCOW, ID - A big change that coach Petrino wanted to see in his team this year...the energy level.

Though they're only two spring practices in, University of Idaho Football Head coach Paul Petrino said he's already seen a major improvement in the energy level of his team compared to last year at this time. Both sides of the ball seemed to be flying around a little faster while the comfort level was high and player's assignments came a little more naturally. In fact, the energy was so high, the offensive and defensive lines got into a little scuffle in the middle of team drills, something Petrino wasn't even upset with.

"Thought it was just a couple silly things, I want the energy, I don't want the energy to stop," said Petrino. "But we don't want to be getting anyone hurt when we don't have full pads either, but that was good, I don't think I ever had to do that last year. Feels good that the energy was flying around and they were getting after it so we just gotta keep improving."

After a makeup practice Tuesday, the Vandals will jump back on the practice field Wednesday at 4:00 p.m.
