Post ESPN College Gameday - Fargo
I know this is off subject, but I'm very excited to have ESPN College Gameday in Fargo this week! My alma mater, the NDSU Bison are coming off back to back National Championships and even knocked of K sate to start the season. This very exciting for our small community. Fargo really supports their schools and fans really travel well. The head coach is a wonderful and humble man. I've had the chance to meet him on numerous occaisions. The quarterback goes to the church I pastor at, he is very down to earth and doesn't seek the limelight. If you get a chance to watch the program Saturday, check it out. They will be filming from downtown Fargo, right in front the iconic Fargo Theatre.

It is indeed a rarity for Gameday to show up at a campus like your alma mater, even with them being 2 time defending National Champs.

Hope they put on a good show. Saw the greeting the bus got as it pulled into town and you could see how excited the community was.

I went to the 1AA Championship two years in row watching Sam Houston State play against North Dakota State In Dallas. North Dakota State is a VERY well coached program for sure, but the best part is like the entire town coming to Texas in a road convoy and the fans wearing those freaking awesome Bison hats!!!

Loved the coverage and, though I'm from South Dakota, I felt plenty of Dakota pride! The different shots of the people and land that were set to music as they went to or returned from a commercial gave me chills. Looking forward to the North Dakota State at South Dakota State match-up next Saturday.
Though the cold is about to make its presence felt, I can't imagine living anywhere else. Bring the cold, bring the snow, and bring the Dolphins on the Sunday Ticket!!
Dolphins 21, Falcons 17.

It was huge for our community. The city was a buzz all week, culminating in an exciting game-day morning. The team did very well not being distracted by the hype and attention. They went out and took care of business 52-0.
I am very appreciative of ESPN giving Fargo the opportunity and hope they return some day.

Didn't watch college football this weekend. Worst series of match ups I could ever remember.

I caught the show, and I thought the community came out in full force. It was a great show and when Corso out with the Bsion head on and the baby bison, that just ended what was a fun show.

That's pretty awesome, Phin. I pick and choose my football and usually don't watch a college game (other than my Wolfpack) unless there are two top 10 teams on or the U is on. I don't live in a sports family unfortunately even though I've tried.
