  • Heated competition for backup safety spots

    Head coach Craig Bohl said senior Cyrus Lemon and junior Daniel Eaves will be difficult to unseat as the starters at strong safety and free safety for the opener at Kansas, but the battle for the backups is getting interesting. True freshman Colten Heagle got good reviews from the scrimmage last Saturday...

  • He’s the perfect walkon

    We had new Moorhead High football coach Kevin Feeney on Wednesday in our daily “SportsTalk” show on WDAY-AM and the former NDSU quarterback, when asked, had a lot of good things to say about Danny Luecke. I can see why. The story in today’s Forum tells of Luecke’s knee injury suffered right away...

  • Bison get their No. 1 target

    The verbal commitment of Joel Lindberg over the weekend was important for the following reason: he was the undisputed No. 1 recruiting target for the Bison men’s basketball coaches. We won’t know until 2011-12 how good he is but the senior from Superior, Wis., had several D-Is throw him offers. Also take...

  • The one and only scrimmage

    It’s the lone wolf in seeing how these Bison players do under game conditions and Saturday’s scrimmage provided the following thought: the defense is better than last year, which you can probably make the argument that there is no where to go but up. But at least it’s up. The scrimmage was designed for...

  • Pfeiffer leaves team after one week

    The first true freshman casualty of fall practice came Thursday night when safety Andy Pfeiffer from Mankato, Minn., left the team for personal reasons, head coach Craig Bohl said Friday. The class still has two touted safeties in Colten Heagle — who appears to be getting attention as a backup — and...

  • He’s still out there

    Don’t forget about Michael Allen, the running back from Chandler, Ariz., that the Bison offered and were close to getting, in the last recruiting class. The latest word is Allen is going to attend a prep school and will be available for the taking for the 2011 recruiting class. NDSU is still in touch....

  • Let’s play two

    The men’s and women’s basketball schedules should be released any day and look for the Bison to return to doubleheaders on league nights when possible. The back-to-back games were a hit back in the North Central Conference days, but the programs went their separate Bison Sports Arena ways when the school went...

  • The 2008 Michigan connection didn’t pan out

    I overlooked this earlier but offensive lineman Carlin Landingham did not return to the team this fall, mainly for not making it academically. He was a backup and probably wouldn’t have been a factor, but more than that, it ends the 2008 recruiting foray into Michigan. That class yielded three heralded players from the...

  • So far, coach calls defense ‘significantly better’

    A few thoughts from this morning’s practice as Craig Bohl was one lightning strike away from shutting the workout down and heading inside for safety: Speaking of the weather, how nice was the Sprinturf today? It was raining and in years past, that meant a beating for the grass practice fields. Today,...

  • Decision gets closer for McGovern

    The top football prospect in North Dakota has narrowed his list to three area Division I Football Championship Subdivision schools, including NDSU, with the outside hope that Minnesota or Missouri will still come calling. Fargo Shanley offensive lineman Connor McGovern eliminated the Ivy League schools he was looking at in favor of...
