Pigskin Preview: Yotes football readies for third season

The smell of grilled meats filling the air. A cacophony of sound as the new C of I band marches to Simplot Stadium. A mighty roar of celebration rising from the purple-clad YoteFam.

The sights and sounds of football will become a reality next weekend as the Yotes take the field for their season opener at 1 p.m. Saturday, hosting No. 25 Montana Western.

“I’ve been looking forward to getting back on the field since last Nov. 14,” said NAIA All-American defensive back Nate Moore. “We’ve been working all offseason to go out there and leave it all out on the field.”

Ski Coach Bonneau earns national recognition

Best Day Ever. It’s the motto of College of Idaho head ski coach Ron Bonneau. A simple phrase that encapsulates the idea of letting go of the things you can’t control, getting rid of the negative thoughts that sometimes dwell in our brains, and recognizing that, on a given day, you’re going to experience the best opportunities that you can bring forward.

C of I hoopsters teach kids the fun of the game

A stampede of sound vibrated through the J.A. Albertson gym as 80 pairs of sneakers ran to and fro, chasing purple and white striped basketballs up and down the hardwood. Kids whooped and hollered for their teammates with every ball that cascaded through the hoop.

On the sidelines, alumni, current and newly recruited College of Idaho basketball players found themselves in the role of coach, working with the youngsters to improve their skills during the C of I basketball camp.

Women’s track four-peats at CCC Championships

Four years ago, the Cascade Conference women’s track and field trophy came back to Caldwell with the league-champion Yotes. A one-year stay turned to two, two years turned to three, and now, it’s starting to look like the trophy may have a permanent home at The College of Idaho.

The Coyote women’s track team capped a banner season by dominating the CCC championships this year. They won gold in 11 individual events and hoisted the CCC trophy for a fourth consecutive time. That’s back-to-back-to-back-to-back, if you’re counting.

C of I announces football schedule, Spring Game

The College of Idaho football team has released its 11-game schedule for the upcoming 2016 season, including five home games at Simplot Stadium. The Yotes return to the gridiron for the season opener against Frontier Conference rival Montana Western on Sept. 3 in Caldwell. 

“The Frontier Conference remains one of the elite conferences in the nation," said C of I football coach Mike Moroski. “And we are building significant rivalries with numerous teams in the league.”

Yotes ski team dominating the slopes

The College of Idaho ski team lives by the motto “Best Day Ever.” Every time the skiers are up on the mountain—whether it’s practice or a race—they aim to have fun while slicing s-turns through the snow.

Based on the Yotes’ success this season, you could say the squad is having the “Best Year Ever.”

C of I hoops teams set for 'Meet the Yotes' night

Are you excited and ready to don your purple and fill the gym for a new season of Coyote basketball? We are, too! But before action tips off this fall at The College of Idaho, the C of I basketball coaches and teams want to meet you—the students, fans, season ticket holders and the entire Caldwell community who provide an electric home-court atmosphere for the Yotes.

Reverse Culture Shock, Paint Fights and The YoteFam

Now that I’m back at school, I’m a little more adjusted to life in the U.S. That’s not to say that I don’t miss France. Numerous times, I’ve found myself walking back from class and thinking, “I could really use a crepe right now.” But alas, there is not an abundance of crepe stands in Idaho. I’ve (mostly) stopped speaking French to people who don’t understand me, and I have gotten used to using dollars again.

The #yotefam

As I stepped up on the block, I had never had the opportunity to hear 60+ people all yelling my name. I thought it would cause my nerves to get the best of me, but it made me just that much more excited for the race.

I was nervous for the our first home swim meet, as I had the flu the week before and had been out of the water for four days, but I think having the home advantage helped me quite a bit. I've never been to a meet where more than 10 students came to watch, so having the bleachers packed was quite an experience.

8 week slump

It's been 8 weeks of school here at C of I and I've had one of the best times of my life. I've made some great friends, had some crazy times and learned a lot. Halloween was awesome, bowling night was a ton of fun, and the Yote Fam cheer section at the NNU game was crazy to be a part of.
