Being an alum of NDSU, I can’t help but notice, the lack of respect that the Bison get, from the Star Tribune.
A little background:
The Bison have won 6 of the last 7 national championships in FCS Divison football.
They have the longest winning streak, in college football; at 19.
They beat the Big Ten’s Minnesota Golden Gophers the last time they met.
They have more Minnesotans on their roster than the Golden Gophers.
In the recent college signing period the Bison got 18 letters of intent, to the Gophers 3, from Minnesota’s top 100 footballers.
Believe me when I say, there is more interest in Minneapolis & St. Paul, for the weekly Bison game, than there is for the Gopher game.
Given those facts, you’d think the Star Tribune would at least list their upcoming games, in their listing, of all upcoming college and pro games. They list St. Johns, Mary Hardin, Alabama-Birmingham, Middle Tennessee, but no Bison. We have go to the NDSU website, or to the award winning Fargo Forum, to get the game times
As a real kicker; how many ESPN Game Days have the Golden Gophers, or St. Johns, or Mary Hardin, or Alabama – Birmingham had in the past 3 years. The Bison have had 2.
