  • Not realistic

    It’s always of interest when a Bison player of four years in one sport decides to try another in the fifth year, in this case basketball player Lorenzo Riley taking a stab at football. That’s exactly what it is: taking a stab. He’s getting a look because he’s 6-6 and 250, although...

  • ’08 to ’09: evaluating the receivers

    Got a shout from a friend who thinks the Bison receivers will actually be better this year than last year. I see the point, but let’s break it down. The premise of the theory is Heckendorf was hurt most of last year and Alex Belquist had an off senior year, especially compared...

  • Vandal out at least a month

    The Bison lost a big part of their offensive attack for at least a month. Fullback Lee Vandal suffered a knee injury over the weekend – and it has the Bison coaches concerned. Vandal took a helmet to his leg during an intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday, an ailment head coach Craig Bohl called...

  • Woods’ season done before it got going

    The play seemed harmless a couple of days ago. Receiver Delane Woods stumbled a bit on a pass route and got up walking a bit gingerly. He went over to the sideline and appeared to try and shake it off. On Thursday, it was thought to be a mild knee strain of some...

  • 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...
