  • Ep. 130: Does every FCS league deserve auto-bid for spring playoff

    Ep. 130: Does every FCS league deserve auto-bid for spring playoff

    18/09/2020 Duración: 01h04min

    With the FCS keeping its spring schedule (for now), the NCAA announced a 16-team playoff. That begs this question: should all 10 FCS conferences get an auto-bid to the playoffs, or should the best 16 teams --- no matter the conference --- be taken. Swany and Nolan debate the merits, and answer the question. The guys also lament the fact Sioux Falls landed the Battle for Atlantis college hoops tourney this year, which includes Duke, Creighton, Ohio State, Texas A&M, and West Virginia. Swany Says it's time Fargo stepped up its game and matched what the Sioux Falls Sports Authority is doing to land so many big-time events. Why aren't Fargo leaders doing that? It's big-time economic development for Sioux Falls, as well, and drives things like conventions, trade shows, conferences, and more marquee events. Finally, the guys pay tribute to former Bison basketball player Jordan Aaberg, who died unexpectedly last week at only 29-years old. Lots of heartfelt talk, this week, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast.

  • Ep. 129: The Athletics Feldman says NDSU v. UCA most intriguing non-conference game

    Ep. 129: The Athletic's Feldman says NDSU v. UCA most intriguing non-conference game

    03/09/2020 Duración: 01h04min

    Bruce Feldman, a college football extraordinaire with The Athletic, says North Dakota State's game against Central Arkansas is the best nonconference matchup in all of college football. Swany and Nolan contemplate the meaning in this, and discuss the hype that's already building for the October 3 contest. The guys also talk about the "rock and a hard place" decision facing NDSU as to the number of fans in the Fargodome stands. Interwoven in this audio tapestry are fond memories of Maverick --- Swany's son --- unloading a diaper bomb on his favorite old, worn-out jeans, along with this intriguing scenario: what beer tastes the best under what situations ... is it that anticipatory airport getaway beer, the just-got-done mowing my lawn beer, or the "hey, it's homecoming, let's do a shower-beer" beer. We have some fun this week, where champions come to podcast, the Bison Illustrated Podcast.

    Ep. 128: ESPN's Van Pelt says NFL will be watching North Dakota State v. UCA

    28/08/2020 Duración: 51min

    Another week, another round of national media attention for North Dakota State. On SportsCenter, ESPN's Scott Van Pelt framed NDSU's game against Central Arkansas thusly: "October 3. Fargo, North Dakota. Mark it down. The NFL already has," said Van Pelt. Bison head coach Matt Entz was on the Dan Patrick Show, and Full Ride with Rick Neuheisel and Chris Childers on XM84 was heavy on Bison talk. Swany and Nolan discuss the importance of this game, the storylines, and reaction from Bison Nation that extends to the highest levels of football. Fill the coolers and fire up the grills, we got a game, friends! And more, this week, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast!

    Ep. 127: Will there be college football of any kind in 2020

    10/08/2020 Duración: 01h03min

    The question looms overhead like the Sword of Damocles, will we see any North Dakota State football games --- or any college football games --- in 2020? Swany and Nolan are back, and more mediocre than ever, talking about the state of affairs and the lack of any good options on the table for a viable college football season this fall. There are no easy decisions facing college presidents, administrators, coaches, and players across the county as the college sports world grapples with if, how, and when the games go on. Are we seeing a sea change, and watershed moment, where players take control of the multi-billion dollar a year sport? When we emerge from the Covid-19 aftermath, what does the college athletics landscape look like? We don't shy away from a debate on the big issues, this week, or any week, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast!

    Swany and Chase are joined by Sam Herder from HERO Sports. The guys talk about HERO Sports Preseason Top 25, North Dakota State's spot at No. 1, and who could challenge the Bison. The Missouri Valley Football Conference, who had the three top teams in the Top 25, is loaded with potential playoff teams. The college football landscape has been deeply impacted by this week's events surrounding the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. As peaceful protesters marched in Fargo, they were joined by several Bison. Swany Says we got their backs, and gives a heartfelt explanation why he supports the rights of every athlete and coach to have their voice heard. There's no such thing as "staying in your lane" here. This is all of our lane, and there's no room for racism in it. Join the dialogue, this week, on the Bison Illustrated Thundering Herdcast Podcast.

    Ep. 125: NDSU returns loaded offense around Lance, Covid-19 will reshape NCAA

    13/05/2020 Duración: 45min

    Much has been made about North Dakota State's Trey Lance in recent weeks, including his rising NFL Draft profile. What the experts should also know --- and what has other FCS coaches crying themselves to sleep --- is that the Bison return a loaded and veteran group on offense that averaged over 37 points per game last fall. This Bison offense would give Power 5 FBS schools fits with its size, athleticism, depth, and playmaking ability. Swany and Nolan are joined by 740AM The Fan's Chase Miller. The guys go over the latest on the status of this fall's college football season, and do an early breakdown of the Bison on both sides of the ball. All that, and Swany's take on why NCAA President Mark Emmert's failure to provide strong leadership right now is spelling the beginning of the end of the NCAA as we know it! It's a hole-in-one, this week, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast!

    04/03/2020 Duración: 57min

    If you could tell NDSU's Jabril Cox why he should stay a Bison, what would you say? It's heartbreak city for Herd fans as Swany and Nolan discuss Cox, a fan favorite, putting his name in the NCAA Transfer Portal.

If you can play, you can play, and if you're a First Round guy, you're a First Round guy whether you play at NDSU, LSU, Alabama, or Alcorn State.

    In this special joint Bison Illustrated/Thundering Herdcast, it's one of the best weeks of the year for Bison Nation: semifinal week! All that's standing in the Bison's way on the Road to Frisco is a resurgent Montana State program and their garbage-talking head coach, Jeff Choate. Choate made headlines when he whined about NDSU's winning ways, saying the Bison were bad for the FCS. Choate went so far to say that the semifinals should be played at a neutral site. Swany Says Choate is a big cry baby. Will Choate's comments be a distraction, serve as bulletin board material, or are they much ado about nothing? Swany and Nolan are joined by Chase Miller from 740AM The Fan. The group talks about Code Green's dominance this playoff season, and the inconsistency from the NDSU offense and red zone woes. The key to this game, and getting back to Frisco, rests with the Rams -- NDSU's offensive line, and converting in the red zone. Get ready for the party with your pals at the Bison Illustrated Podcast!
