  • Under the football Christmas tree

    Here is my take on this season and a snapshot of what needs to happen next year in order for the Bison to move close to Frisco, Texas. In the post-Saturday analysis for you part II, what would you like to see under the NDSU football Christmas tree?

  • Gratzek has been the rock

    Just got done going through the NDSU vs. Eastern Washington matchups with QB, RB, O line, D line, linebackers, secondary and special teams. Here’s why the Bison have a chance to advance again on the road: they appear to have the advantage at the offensive and defensive lines. That’s how you explain...

  • Jensen: ‘continue to play how I know how to play’

    NDSU quarterback Brock Jensen said earlier this afternoon that he was cleared to play Saturday in the FCS quarterfinals at Eastern Washington. He’ listed as the starter on the Bison depth chart.

  • Seeing red, red, red, red and red

  • 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...

The little black pellets in the FieldTurf, then, act like snowballs and it gets messy. That happened against Weber...
