A hard right

A hard right

Shawn Bibeau walked out of NDSU’s Metrodome locker room and onto the field to face some reporters. Just the fact the freshman kicker had the maturity to do so — after his last-second field goal against the Gophers was blocked — says a lot.

He handled the questions like a champ and moved on.

It was a tough loss. The opponent, meanwhile, was not very impressive.

The hardest hit by anybody in Minneapolis on Saturday was not delivered by a Gopher player at the Metrodome. No, it was a young punk who threw a right hook at my jaw a couple of football fields from my downtown Minneapolis hotel after the game. Totally random violence. Not sure if he was getting revenge for a couple of Bison fans passionately yelling at Sid in the press box or what. Or maybe it was a Bison fan thinking I was McFeely.

It was around 8 p.m. and I was walking to dinner when the next thing I can remember is the pavement. There were people milling around all over the place. I recall Bill Kiefer — a Bison fan who happened to be in the area asking me if I was all right. He helped me into a cab and by then the fog was lifting.

I’m fine other than a sore jaw. Just makes you appreciate Nacogdoches, Texas and Statesboro, Ga.
