    NDSU’s Lechler talks about playing for grandfather

    I spent a lot of time today with Bison offensive lineman Landon Lechler at his family’s farm and ranch...

    Dome sweet dome?

    After Kyle Emanuel went in the fifth round to the Chargers, the other Bison in the mix got into the free agent frenzy. I thought John Crockett going to the Green Bay Packers was a good fit, in that the Packers seem to use those tougher, West Coast offense-style runners with the...

    Writing a book: if dad could do it, I guess I can, too

    It was over a year ago when my two older brothers started seriously pinging me about writing the sequel to dad’s book, which is a historical perspective of Bison football from the mid 1960s to the early 1990s. My standard answer was this: If they win four in a row, then I’ll...

    Spring football: defensive ends battling it out

      Last year, it was Kyle Emanuel and Mike Hardie at defensive end and that was about it — until Hardie was injured and Brad Ambrosius developed into a dependable backup. Later in the season, the Bison brought true freshman Greg Menard up to standards and he contributed in the playoff run....

    Bison scrimmage: score a victory for the offense

    The offense is ahead of the defense, that much is certain of today’s first scrimmage of NDSU spring football. It also was to be expected considering the Bison lost some heavy hitters on defense from last year. “We weren’t as sharp defensively but give credit to the offense,” said head coach Chris...

    Even the quarterbacks subject to getting pancaked this spring

    It was last year in spring football when there seemingly were more starters held out than starters on the field. It was a result of two things: a lot of “maintenance” type surgeries that several players underwent — like bad shoulders — and a group of players that played the equivalent of...

    It’s a running back committee of three members now

      After six practices, it’s becoming obvious the Bison will go with a three-man backfield rotation for the remainder of spring practice and most likely into fall camp. The emergence of freshman Lance Dunn (story in Thursday’s Forum) is the biggest reason for the committee approach to tailback. On that note, it...

    Big spring for Bison to establish competency at safety and OLB

    It’s been interesting to see the new coaching staff taking shape and the philosophies of new head coach Bob Stitt at the University of Montana. Lately, some NFL teams have been paying attention to what’s going on with the Grizzlies with Minnesota Vikings quarterback coach Scott Turner even traveling to Missoula to...

    Return of Johnson adds to class consistency of offensive line

    Contrary to some opinions, NDSU isn’t scheduling spring football practices at 7:15 a.m. to keep the night-owl TV folks from not sleeping much. It just happens to be the best time where the most players don’t have class. Head coach Chris Klieman said a lot of players have class from 3 to...

    The No. 1 ‘drive?’ You tell us

    NDSU’s drive on Saturday that started with just over a minute remaining and ended with Carson Wentz scoring from the 5-yard line that gave the Bison their fourth straight FCS title will go down in the history books. But where does it rank? Below are what I believe to be the top...
