North Dakota State to the Big 12? Honestly, it’d make sense

In case you’ve been living in a ditch that doesn’t get radio frequency or Wifi, the Big 12 is potentially looking to expand. Or not. It sort of depends on the week. It’s more fickle than a high school relationship, but either they will or won’t … that’s for sure. What it gives the world is an unlimited amount of columns about who fits into the Big 12, in which sports...

North Dakota State president rescinds restrictions on non-rightsholder media

There’s a long-standing pattern in college sports of schools restricting access to local media, getting called out by national media for it, and then changing their tune. It happened with Louisville, South Carolina, Michigan and even Canada’s Queen’s University, and the latest to follow suit is five-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State.

Five NFL general managers on the hot seat entering the draft

While the players that are drafted get the majority of the attention during the NFL draft, the executives who draft them are being watched just as closely. If the general managers take the wrong players and draft a generally unproductive class, they quickly become the least popular people in town.
