Halfway to Happy

At halftime, the NDSU Bison are tipping the GoGos 6-3.

Hang in there, Bison! The Strib's Chip Scoggins put it this way:

PREDICTION: GOPHERS 38, NDSU 17

The Gophers are mired in a four-game losing streak and not in very good spirits these days. NDSU will be excited and should have strong support from its fans, but the Gophers have too much talent.

Uh huh. We shall see.

At least the Strib's sports section is allowed to be partisan for no good reason.

A Bison win would be almost as cool as the Bears clobbering the Vikes.

UPDATE AND DAMMIT: One point.

One lousy point.

But not 21 points.

Maybe Chip Scoggins works for the Minnesota Poll...

Gophers have too much talent

Lou Nanne had the ''too much talent'' problem when he ran the North Stars with similar results.

Oops. NoDak loses. To the pathetic Gophers.
HAH.

Even so this has to be Coach Mason's death knell. That's ridiculous, barely eeking out a win over NDSU. In hockey, no shame, in football, a disgrace.

"In hockey, no shame"

Actually, it's UND (Grand Forks) that has the hockey program. NDSU (Fargo) is the football school.

"..., in football, a disgrace."

Not so much. The Bison have won *many* national championships in their original division.

Actually before the Bison ran away, it was the Sioux who enjoyed the upper-hand in the last few years of NCC play.

Elder,

Could be. I haven't followed North Dakota sports all that much in 20-odd years.

Elder,

Could be. I haven't followed North Dakota sports all that much in 20-odd years. But yaaaaay, Sioux! Bison Suck!

Elder,

Could be. I haven't followed North Dakota sports all that much in 20-odd years. I rejoice when they win, but that's about all I devote to it. All I care about is that in losing by one point, the Bison made the GoGos look like monkeys.

Monkeys?

Maybe he meant "The Monkeys". I can kinda see the resemblance between Belinda Carlisle and Davey Jones. Well, except for the fact that Belinda is about thirty pounds heavier, has a deeper voice and a bigger adams apple.
