We are just 10 days away from the season opener against the Montana State bobcats for the Idaho Vandals. Coach Petrino has spoken at length about spreading the ball around on offense.

As of now Petrino hasn't put down who will start at wide receiver or tight end. The players are still building their resume through the catch chart. The catch chart tracks the highest percentage of catches to drops. Along with giving more passes to tight ends and receivers, it is also giving growth to the cornerbacks.

"We're just all trying to lead the catch chart, whatever day it is. So regardless of what position I'm at or whatever position, anyone plays you know everyone's just trying to lead that catch chart,” said, tight end Deon Watson.

"We gotta step it up from what we did last year we always teach them when the ball is in the air it's ours we got as much right as the receivers do to that ball in the air so it's good to see them be there and make the play on top. I always tell them the depth chart is fluid you can have that spot but you can lose it easily so don't get comfortable,”  said Cornerbacks Coach Aric Williams.
