Talking Bison, Twins On Sports Talk Radio Today

“Sports Talk” returns for the first time since Saturday’s big victory for the North Dakota State football team. I’m hosting the show, and I’ll be joined by Forum staffer Dan Haglund. Show techinically starts at 1 p.m., but it doesn’t usually get under way until 1:10 p.m. That’s on 970-AM WDAY.

We’ll talk about the Bison football victory against Kansas. How has it changed your view of the team’s potential this year? Did the defenses dominate the offenses, or was it simply a case of two inexperienced offenses not finding their footing? Where does this win rank among Craig Bohl’s upsets? And how does NDSU keep beating these FBS schools (isn’t that four FBS wins in the last five years)?

We’ll be joined from the get-go by WDAY-TV’s Dom Izzo, who was in Lawrence, Kan., on Saturday to cover the game. Then, we’ll talk to NDSU AD of marketing Troy Goergen to discuss the victory and what wins like this do for the school in terms of attendance and enthusiasm surrounding the program.

Dan and I will also talk some Twins baseball and Boise State football if time allows. I was at Sunday’s victory and watched the Legends Game. I have a few thoughts on that. And what a win for those Broncos, out to bust open the BCS.

We’ll take your calls at 293-9000 or (800) 279-9329 or send us an e-mail at
