MOORHEAD—It happens at basketball tournament time. Those smooth-flowing plays during the regular season sometimes have a different feel in the spacious confines of Memorial Auditorium on the Concordia College campus. East Grand Forks and Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton slugged it out Tuesday night in the Minnesota Section 8AA girls semifinals, a game in which there was more intensity than offense. The last minute turned into a burst of Green Wave momentum and they took a 50-46 victory.
Carson Wentz is a lot of things. He’s an MVP-like quarterback in the NFL, he organized an AO1 Foundation that is set up to do a lot of good things for a lot of people for years to come, he continues to pay homage to his alma mater through tweets and bringing Eagles teammates back to North Dakota, he’s an avid outdoorsman who along with his brother Zach have an entertaining YouTube series called Wentz Bros Outdoors and he’s done things behind the scenes to help sick or recovering kids and adults. What he is not, despite his spreading of the gospel, is God.
FARGO—Three North Dakota State football players were dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules, head coach Chris Klieman said on Monday afternoon, Nov. 27. All three, freshman quarterback Henry Van Dellen, senior safety Darren Kelley and freshman receiver Sean Engel, were backups and were not expected to factor into Saturday's FCS second-round playoff game against the University of San Diego. Moreover, backup receiver Dallas Freeman was suspended for one game effective last Monday. Klieman would not elaborate further on his actions.
Click on the picture attached to this story to get a look at each sport's deficit in 2016. FARGO—The University of North Dakota recently cut women's hockey, citing the sport's recent $1.9 million operating deficit during tight budget times for the university and state. But UND women's hockey isn't the only athletic program running an operating deficit at the state's two Division I universities. In fact, every sport in 2016 at UND and North Dakota State University spent more money than they brought in.
The five burning questions for the North Dakota State football team this spring and my prediction for each:
Fargo - I miss Greg Kampe. No, check that. I miss him but you, the North Dakota State basketball fan, miss him dearly. You miss the dark knights from Oakland University (Mich.) who came to Fargo wearing their all-black uniforms and hard-edge attitude to match. The head coach was part of that schtick and he enjoyed being in the middle of boos more than any coach in the Summit League—when Oakland was in the Summit.
FARGO—An open cornerback position at North Dakota State lost a candidate this week. Sophomore Dakota Reid left the team for personal reasons, head coach Chris Klieman said Thursday, Aug. 4...
FARGO—Another year of coming off an FCS national title, another year of trying to hold on to verbal commitments for North Dakota State. That's the life the Bison live these days on the college football recruiting trail. NDSU had to sweat some late calls by FBS schools and announced a class of 26 recruits on Wednesday. Some of those had other options late in the process.
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — If there was any rust with the North Dakota State men’s basketball team, it was probably underneath the metal chairs on the bench. On the floor, the Bison were a sports car in a bicycle race.
