  • The annual prediction

    Journalists doing math is always a scary thing, but let’s look at the numbers of this Bison football team: You lost eight players who had some pro tryout of some sort from a 6-5 team. You have a tougher schedule with three of the first four on the road and you’re going...

  • Deciphering the QB battle

    It’s less than a week before the season opener and there still isn’t a starting quarterback in the Bison camp, apparently. Nick Mertens seems like the obvious choice but Dante Perez continues to be in the mix by also taking snaps with the No. 1 offense. Having two guys taking turns taking...

  • Schultenover transfers to St. Paul

    Former Bison receiver Jordan Schultenover, who was booted from the team after a possession of marijuana with intent to deliver charge, has transferred to Concordia-St. Paul. He’ll be immediately eligible because the Golden Bears are an NCAA Division II program and NDSU is a Division I FCS. He has one year of...

  • Media top 25 poll

    The Sports Network top 25 media poll released this afternoon: 1. Appalachian State Mountaineers (79) 0-0 3,853 5 2. Richmond Spiders (72) 0-0 3,792 1 3. Montana Grizzlies (2) 0-0 3,506 2 4.

  • 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...
