    Toss the stats and records out the window because nothing less than the fate of the FCS world is at stake! It's Rocky v. Ivan Drago, the Globetrotters v. the Washington Generals, and the Sons of Liberty v. The Red Coats all rolled into one. North Dakota State. James Madison. The championship collision draws near, and only one team will emerge with the much-coveted championship trophy. Putting the hyperbole aside, the outcome of this game will shape the FCS narrative for next year, and potentially beyond. Will North Dakota State cast aside the would-be usurpers, or will James Madison show it can beat NDSU in Frisco. With so many stories, the intrigue abounds! What playmakers will shine bright? Can each team counterpunch when adversity strikes, and, or course, the chess-match between two coaching staffs. Pull up a chair, pop the top, and saddle up with your pals at the Bison Illustrated Podcast as we bring you the FCS CHAMPIONSHIP EXTRAVAGANZA!

    All season, North Dakota State and James Madison have separated themselves by leaps and bounds from the rest of the FCS. Only one, though, can emerge victorious as the National Champion. It's a heavyweight battle with two seasoned teams. What will be the difference between the Bison and Dukes? At least statistically, they are nearly equal in every category from total offense, total defense, third-down conversion percentage, to red zone efficiency. Each roster is filled with playmakers that can tip the scales, and each team is staffed with high-caliber coaches. Swany and Nolan preview the matchup, and tell you what will be the difference, and why, in Frisco. Giddy up for one helluva football game, folks, this week, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast!

    Ep. 114: On the Line, Key to Frisco Rests with NDSU's Offensive Line

    18/12/2019 Duración: 50min

    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!

    25/09/2019 Duración: 01h09min

    It's not debatable, no matter what Brian McLaughlin from Hero Sports says! Just kidding, B-Mac, much respect, we just differ on who should be ranked No. 1 in the FCS after North Dakota State notched another Top 25 win against a very talented UC-Davis squad. It was NDSU's third Top 25 win this year, more than any other team in the FCS. When it mattered most, it was the Bison who made the big plays with the game at stake to earn a 27-16 win. Swany and Nolan recap why NDSU fans should be happier than ants on a sugar pile with the Herd's 4-0 start heading into a tough MVFC slate that features four ranked opponents in the next five games.

The Bison look to flex their offensive muscles against a resurgent UC-Davis program led by QB Jake Maier, one of the preseason favorites for the Walton Payton Award. Swany and Nolan dissect how the Aggies brand of football will -- or will not -- translate against a tough Code Green Defense in one of the best environments in all of college football. Trey Lance leads the FCS in several passing categories, and looks to make another large impression on a nationwide audience paying attention to whether UC-Davis is as good as their early season ranking. Put your tray tables and seatbacks in their upright positions, because we could see some aerial fireworks, this week, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast!

The young gun from Marshall, MN, put up another 4 TDs against in-state rival North Dakota as the undisputed champs of the FCS flexed their muscles. Swany & Nolan say the rest of the FCS should be on notice, this dude can flat out ball, and the Bison haven't missed a beat. Speaking of missing a beat, did you see Delaware struggle against Rhode Island? We did, and we tell you about it. Swany has a little edge as he tells Delaware to go back to the rock quarry. Are there even rock quarries in Newark? Mookalakaheeki, pass the poi, Maholo, because we're in Delaware, this week, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast!
