  • Strength of schedule works

    Chalk these FCS playoffs up to strength of schedules. There are eight teams remaining and four of them, including NDSU, have four losses. The other four have two defeats. It proves the point that strength of conference does matter.  It also shows you how well a playoff system works.  A team like...

  • One guy had it right in September

    The Father of Football, who by the way will be in Cheney, Wash., for Saturday’s NDSU at Eastern Washington quarterfinal game, said this in early September before the NDSU opener. I think it bears repeating since he was right, and most of us, like Dom, were wrong. “I think the team has...

  • Bison at Bobcats: your prediction

    There will be no Saturday Morning Sports Show tomorrow because of a commitment to a high school basketball preview show with Erick Johnson, although Dom and myself will sneak on the last 10 minutes or so at about 10:45 from Bozeman. So let this be your forum to the prediction for Saturday’s...

  • Weather talk

    Talked with Montana State head coach Rob Ash and he said about the only way weather will have a major impact on Saturday’s playoff game with NDSU is if there is heavy snow during the game.

  • Why the new practice surface was installed

    Score a victory for the new Sprinturf practice surface at old Dacotah Field. It was a process to get installed, but this is why it was done: preparing for a late season or playoff game in inclimate weather. The Bison begin preparation for Montana State at 8 tonight and it’s not exactly...

  • It’s not quite 1985, but comparisons are there

    The year was 1985 and the season didn’t go as expected. With more losses than what was hoped and the season completed, the Bison players were sent home for the Thanksgiving break, only to be called back after NDSU unexpectedly made the field of 16  8 for the Division II playoffs. Seems...

  • Bison were the last team picked

    The days of FCS teams scheduling D-II or NAIA teams are probably over. That philosophy hurt a few teams this year when it came selection time and Liberty University was one of them. Five days before Thanksgiving, NDSU gave thanks to its strength of schedule. That factor, more than any other, got...
