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.
