Minneapolis That was for Drew Pearson's Hail Mary. And Gary Anderson's wide left. And Brett Favre's interception. And Blair Walsh's shank. And the four Super Bowls. Of course, those four awful losses. That was for you, Minnesota Vikings fans. You got one. You finally got one. How does it feel?
Yes, this might be the year. Case Keenum or not, this could be the year the Minnesota Vikings win it all. Or, more likely given history, it could be another year when the team rips out the hearts of its fans and crushes their souls, leaving purple-wearing heaps sobbing by the side of the road—just like it has for the 56 previous years. Happy Sunday!
Making America Great Again takes a backseat to Kevin Keeping His Job, apparently.
The best North Dakota Republicans can do is Tom Campbell. For six years they've salivated over the thought of taking down U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, a lonely Democrat in a state so politically conservative it's beginning to give Alabama and Mississippi a run for their money, to the point of near-obsession.
Frisco, Texas Easton Stick downplayed the poetic justice of him leading North Dakota State to a victory in the national championship game, because that's his style. He learned that from his buddy Carson Wentz. It's all about the team, all the time. But let us say what needs to be said: Stick getting a victory as the starting quarterback for the Bison is something he deserved. He got his own national championship, officially.
Frisco, Texas This is not normal. Chris Klieman knows this. Moments after screaming "You got your six-pack!" to thousands of celebrating North Dakota State football fans jamming the field from end to end at Toyota Stadium—he meant championships, not beers—the Bison football coach saw a familiar face just behind the stage. Klieman smiled and shook his head, his new championship cap askew from all the hugging and patting on the back.
FRISCO, Texas — North Dakota State’s football arrived at Toyota Stadium at 8:30 a.m. to get ready for its FCS national title game against James Madison. There was a huge throng of Bison fans greeting the arrival. Click here to continue reading Mike McFeely's blog post .
Frisco, Texas There might be more than just a boring old championship at stake in this Dallas suburb. When North Dakota State and James Madison square off on the lush grass of Toyota Field on what is expected to be a spectacular 60-degree Saturday, dynasties are on the line. The Dukes want to start one, while the Bison want to keep one going. The Bison and the Dukes will be fighting to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the Football Championship Subdivision. They will battle to be the "it" program at the lower level of NCAA Division I.
Frisco, Texas James Fisher is just fine being North Dakota State's anonymous All-American because he knows it means he's doing his job perfectly. While making headlines and highlights is generally a good thing for quarterbacks or linebackers, it is bad news for a long snapper like Fisher.
Frisco, Texas A heads-up to any North Dakota State football fans who might also cheer for the Minnesota Vikings: If you are in Frisco this week and plan on taking a tour of The Star, the world headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys just down the road from Toyota Stadium, be prepared to have an old wound opened. And salt poured in it.
