Busy times in the football world even though we’re still 12 days away from the Super Bowl and over two weeks away from signing day, but the Senior Bowl is taking up plenty of attention this week as former Bison All-American Billy Turner is in the game, the first NDSU player to participate since Mike Dragosavich did in 2008.
Got some interesting links to pass along, starting with an interview I did on Dizzo’s Den last night with Dane Brugler from CBSSports.com, who’s in Mobile and has some strong comments on Billy.
- Here’s the writeup from Brugler and friends on Turner at the Senior Bowl, who called Billy “The Most Impressive O-Lineman on Day 1″.
- Bleacher Report on Turner being a 1ST ROUND pick.
- Position by Position preview that includes Turner.
NFL Network has some great coverage all week on the game, practice airs today from 1-3 on each squad, likely we’ll see the “Big Mountain” featured, he’s wearing number 72.
Also had an interesting question posed in our Sunday Live Chat and I wanted to throw it out here hopefully for a thoughtful discussion; What are Bison fans more interested about right now; football recruiting or the men’s basketball team? Jeff and I discussed on my radio show last night, I tend to think recruiting is the leader right now, football popularity is at an all-time high and there are hundreds of web sites all over the country ranking players with videos accompanying those players and while the basketball team is off to a great start in conference play, that seems to be swallowed up right now. Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s the vibe I’m getting now.
