Monday certainly didn’t calm down in the land of NDSU as the Bison are well into game prep for New Hampshire on Friday night, but also it appears the coaching change hasn’t affected recruiting in a negative fashion as the Bison received a verbal commitment from Lance Dunn, a 5’9 running back from Waterloo, Iowa, it should be noted that’s the new head coach’s backyard.
Dunn; according to Rivals.com had offers from Northern Iowa, South Dakota and Western Illinois and becomes the 15th commitment for the Class of 2014.
Well guys I'm officially a bison!!!!! #ndsu

The NDSU men’s basketball team has seen its RPI continue to soar after last week’s win over Notre Dame, they responded on Monday night with an impressive 85-66 win over Delaware, Taylor Braun was terrific, going for 33 points, Bison are now 8-4 thru the teeth of their schedule with a good Towson team to come on Saturday.
Couple other items for people that care; stories about two diverging football programs, first not a good story from Portland, where Portland State has been on notice that they need to be self-sustaining or risk the program being shut down, you can read that here. Also from last week that got under my radar, was the news that Eastern Kentucky is exploring the possibility of moving up to FBS. EKU made the playoffs in 2011, they’re looking for either a spot in the Sun Belt or the MAC, read what you will into it here.
