As NDSU works through the first of two bye weeks during the regular season, wanted to pass along some links for people to read and comment on with no football this weekend, first the usual Sports Network bracketology is out with NDSU in an interesting bracket.
- Dennis Dodd has his weekly power rankings out and in all rarities it includes two FCS teams, NDSU clocks in at 17.
- Joe Scalzo, beat writer for Youngstown State, has an article on the Penguins upcoming matchup with Michigan State and future games with the Big 10.
As many that read the blog and watch us here, I’m a native New Yorker and while September 11th means a lot to everyone, it strikes a different chord with me. I was in New York City a month before the attacks, I have several friends that worked at or near the World Trade Center and to look back at the video it’s hard not to remember exactly what you were doing. Two years ago I decided to look back at how 9/11 affected NDSU and it was direct to the football team with the cancellation of one of the most high profile games in recent memory with Maine.
