  • Here’s to Cliff

    I first came across Cliff Nygard while doing some stories on American Legion baseball several years ago. One thing that stood out was his commitment to the kids. I recall there were some controversial moments and I also recall Cliff not hiding in the weeds over issues. He was a stand-up guy....

  • The Day After

    Some other stuff from signing day: My belief is NDSU got the best two in-state players outside of Williston lineman Brent Qvale, who signed with Nebraska. South linebacker Brandon Jemison and Hillsboro fullback Andrew Grothmann are tops in the Kolpack Scientific Scouting Service. There are some interesting multi-sport facts, such as Marshall...

  • All of that; NDSU still would have stayed home

    The playoff field is out with auto bids in paratheses:Wofford at James Madison (CAA), Colgate (Patriot) at Villanova, Texas State (Southland) at Montana, Weber State (Big Sky) at Cal Poly, South Carolina State (MEAC) at Appalachian State (SoCon), Eastern Kentucky (Ohio Valley) at Richmond, Maine at Northern Iowa and New Hampshire at...

  • It almost got really interesting

    Coming to the lot tonight I found myself unexpectedly intrigued for this game.  I had prepared for an inconsequential game that turned suddenly interesting as the "Kolpack 7" broke stunningly positive for NDSU.  Are you kidding me?  All 7 games go the way of NDSU?  Could it be that somewhere Dr. Joe...

  • Bison-Jackrabbits interactive

    It’s the last week of the season and lot people have the same general comment: it’s flown by. Well, it really hasn’t. But it’s SDSU at NDSU and the Fargodome will be full tonight and just that makes it a good experience. This week, we painted a possible playoff path for NDSU and...

  • Just a feeling

    Let’s say you’re Northern Iowa, and you know the NDSU QB has been reigned in, you know the Bison want to pound the ball to Roehl, and being an astute consumer of Jeff Kolpack product that NDSU’s best receiver is hoofing around in a boot and figures to be a game time...

  • Long way from home

    It takes some motivation to fly to a country like Bosnia and begin a pro basketball career. You know nobody, you don’t know the language and you just left behind your family and friends, albeit for a relatively brief period of time. But that’s what Lisa Bue did,which I wrote about today. Her disconnect didn’t...

  • Bison-Leathernecks interactive

    To whomever started the push for the Fargodome — Goose Johnson? — we say a big thank you today. It’s cold out there, it’s raining out there and it’s a tad windy. Not a great day for football. Outdoors, maybe get a less than 6 or 7,000. In here, NDSU looking for...

  • NDSU-Wyoming interactive

    LARAMIE, Wyo. This is why they made outdoor football. Sunny skies, temps in the high 60s or so and a Mountain West-sized stadium. That’s the two-hour-before-game time synopsis of NDSU at Wyoming. The field may be at 7,220 feet but the press box feels about 1,000 feet higher. Comments are open and...

  • WDAY at the game

    From the shameless self-promotion department, we’re going to be doing a bunch of stuff on TV, radio, and web tomorrow. The one I’m most excited about is a new segment, a game day preview from the stadium – a look at the field, and surroundings, the campus, etc.  Maybe a look at the...
