  • Eaves gets first shot at free safety

    The free safety position was virtually worry-free for the Bison since Nick Schommer’s freshman year when he took it over. Schommer is now with the Tennessee Titans. His replacement, sophomore Daniel Eaves, has done some nice things this fall. Certainly, we’ll have to wait until game day, but Eaves has been manning...

  • Pierre, Jemison will definitely play

    As the days go along, the quarterbacks look to be more accurate with their throwing and if I didn’t know any better, it appears the Bison are developing an effective passing game. Receiver Gary Williams made a couple of tough catches in traffic (he also dropped a wide open one later) and...

  • Offense comes alive

    They didn’t show it most of the week in practice, but the Bison offense was consistently effective in Saturday’s intrasquad scrimmage. Most encouraging to the coaching staff: an effective passing game and the accuracy of Nick Mertens, who appeared to solidify his starting spot. Here are some reflections from the head coach: The top...

  • Gatlin gets in the mix

    Nothing says fall football camp like 90-degree heat and humidity. Bison coaches better enjoy the character-builder while it lasts. A couple of notes from Friday: Cornerback Josh Gatlin, a transfer from the North Dakota State College of Science, started to get in the flow after sitting out the first week with transcript...

  • The new Shamen

    Shamen Washington is closer to full speed than he has been since injuring his knee in spring football of 2008. After one week of practice, it’s becoming clear who will be the Shamen Heir Apparent. True freshman Mike Sigers is 5-foot-6 and 158 pounds of Shamen-like moves. He continues to impress with...

  • Turning up the heat

    Craig Bohl put an abrupt end to Wednesday’s practice after it appeared he had enough of his players not working hard enough (at least in his eyes). "We turned up the heat on them," he said later. "We learned … fatigue will make a coward of you and making mistakes out there....

  • Craig Bohl: sports reporter

    It is a new age indeed. You can add another job title to Craig Bohl in addition to head football coach. He is now his own reporter. Thanks to his "Twitter" account, Bohl in essence is breaking his own news with his latest entry posted seven minutes ago as this is written:...

  • Wurzbacher third Bruin to sign

    It took awhile to confirm today, but Jerimiah Wurzbacher is the third player from Fargo South to sign a pro football contract. The first two, Gordy Sprattler and Tony Satter, were both running backs. Sprattler was drafted out of NDSU in the 1970s. I remember him as a big, bruising back who...

  • It would be easier to get a hold of Obama

    In the reporting circles, the NCAA isn’t exactly known for its speedy and informative availability to us scribes. Trying to get a hold of the right person for NDSU’s appeal of NCAA spring football rules has predictably been a chore. What’s so tough about getting a human being on the other end...

  • Players need to learn — quickly

    Maybe it’s just me, but I think we need to at least temporarily remove the river from the City of Fargo logo: Anyway, because of the flood, the state of moving target called Bison spring football practice is this: it’s been delayed until April 26. It was the smart move considering the...
