  • The players’ take

    I talked to Lisa Bue tonight, she’s on the interview committee for the NDSU womens basketball search — more commonly referred to as the "waiting for DeHoff to get hired" search around the WDAY offices. I asked Lisa what the players thought of her, and I was particularly interested in what words...

  • Carolyn DeHoff interview

    I’m in the process of posting the entire interview that Jeff Kolpack and I did at the airport this afternoon.  It will show in two parts on www.wday.com.  It runs about 4:30 in all.

  • Recruiting in Review

    Kolpack says I should post a recruiting wrapup, and I don’t want to get on his bad side, so here we go…Some of this may be a repeat from earlier posts when the verbals came in. First off, I have a tough time "grading" this class because obviously I have only seen one...

  • Sort of live blog 9

    Good afternoon from cool, but-not-so-bad-outside Fargo. First some business: linebacker Joe Mays is running around the dome field at what looks to be full speed, so we’ll see if his hip pointer keeps him out another week or not. Since it’s his last game, bet the house he’ll play. Running back Tyler...

  • A blatant, unforgivable, appalling and disgusting omission

    History was made in the annuals of NDSU press conferences today when one was held to announce media coverage. The school, which took the rights in-house this year, announced an expanded radio network and the possibility of five of the 11 games on television. Wasn’t it yesterday when one or two a...

  • The numbers game

    Ran across this from the NCAA Web site. Reminds me of the story of how former NDSU coach Ron Erhardt — in an effort to hide an injury to starting quarterback Mike Bentson prior to the UND game somewhere around 1970 — ordered a backup QB to wear Bentson’s number in practice....

  • Tell us about Goofy

    David "Goofy" Gauffin was mostly known to the NDSU coaches and athletes as the guy who drove them safely to and from a destination. I didn’t know him but there is so much more to the man who left us early. The column today drew more reader response than I’ve seen for...

  • Babich on radio

    Former NDSU head football coach Bob Babich, now an assistant with the Chicago Bears, is going to take a few minutes away from Super Bowl preparations Saturday morning on the WDAY Saturday Morning Sports Show — or whatever Mr. McFeely calls it — from 10 to noon. Mike is still on hiatus so the...

  • Bradley; Bonds and the BALCO Buster

    Spoke at a couple of Ben Franklin Junior High eighth grade classes today. In one segment, we talked about athletes getting into trouble. I asked each class to list athletes who have gotten in the news with something other than an on-the-field accomplishment. In each instance, Barry Bonds was the first person...

  • The Gateway formula

    So the Gateway has its eye on the Bison and Jacks. The Kolpack Sports Book puts the chances at 90 percent, if not better, that both schools will find their way into membership. After covering these conference expansion issues since 2003, there seems to be a rather simple formula. 1) Somebody HAS to...
