    Episode 139: The Road to the NFL Draft Comes Through Fargo

    03/02/2021 Duración: 01h09min

    On this week's Bison Illustrated Podcast brought to you by Scheels, it's heavy Bison Football talk. The good folks at the Reese's Senior Bowl like to say, "The Road to the [NFL] Draft Starts in Mobile." Last week, in Mobile, we learned the Road to the Draft is coming to Fargo after North Dakota State football alums Dillon Radunz and Jabril Cox notched impressive performances that skyrocketed their draft stock faster than Game Stop. Add in a potential Top 5 pick in former Bison QB Trey Lance, NDSU could have three players taken in the Top 40 draft picks. Swany and Nolan talk about what the means for the program and community. The guys also discuss Bison hoops as the men and women are coming off splits in Kansas City, setting up a huge weekend home series against Oral Roberts that will go a long ways in the conference standings. Finally, we wrap with an update on Carson Wentz, and how the Philadelphia Eagles need to firmly commit to their franchise QB. All that, and a whole lot more, this week, where champions

    Swany and Nolan discuss former NDSU great Joe Haeg's Tampa Bay Buccaneers advancing to the Super Bowl. The guys recap another big weekend for Bison hoops as the men swept Denver, and the women had a convincing bounce back victory on Saturday night. Both teams find themselves in contention for the Summit League's top spot midway through league play. With football just around the corner, and several FCS stalwarts like Montana and Montana State opting out of the spring season, we tell you what that could mean. Tune in and turn up the guys that always go for it on fourth down, this week, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast.

    Ep. 137: Back from Covid, we talk Bison hoops owning the Summit League

    15/01/2021 Duración: 01h02min

    Just as we were heating up, covid intervened and sidelined Swany for a few weeks. But we're back, covid free, and ready to sling some truth! So here it is ... North Dakota State hoops is, through the early conference slate, owning the Summit. While there are plenty of games left to go, Dave Richman's team isn't showing any signs of a rebuild, and Jory Collins squad is coming up on the Rushmore monsters faster than a stampede. The guys break it down, and talk about a common theme for both programs --- balance. On any given night, it's a different Bison leading the way, which makes the Herd very dangerous. It's a hoops haven, and we wrap with some football talk, this week, where champions come to talk, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast!

Swany & Nolan then talk about how the Bison men are coming into form as they head into a Power 5 matchup of their own against TCU. Reaching deep into Santa's Sleigh, the guys recap the Herd's big recruiting week with talent that could compete for a Mountain West crown (Hey, San Jose State just won that league). If the Mountain West sent NDSU a note saying, "Do you like me? Check 'Yes,' 'No,' or 'Maybe,'" what box would you check Bison Nation? Throw on another Yule log, fill the Egg Nog, and listen to the gift that keeps on giving, Clark! Here, this week, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast!

    North Dakota State beats another Power 5 program for a big-time recruit. So what else is new? Bison Football inked a high caliber recruiting class to keep the Championship Train on the tracks. The Herd invaded the Cornhusker State and bested Scott Frost for a QB stud from Omaha. Swany Says that NDSU has been a better football team than Nebraska for a decade. The guys talk about a nice weekend in Sioux Falls for Bison hoops, and the Bison women getting votes in the Top 25. Swany and Nolan wrap the bow on this present by discussing the momentum building around NDSU moving to FBS.

    08/12/2020 Duración: 01h11min

    After a fall devoid of North Dakota State sports talk, the Herd is back in a big way. The Bison women are off to a scorching 3-0 start under Jory Collins, and deserve to be rated in the Mid-Major Top 25. The Bison men nearly upset college hoops blue blood Kansas, falling agonizingly short at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence. The Herd takes on rivals South Dakota State and North Dakota this week in Sioux Falls in a round robin featuring all four D-I Dakota schools. Swany and Nolan cap this episode by discussing a national football media that, writ large, are seemingly taking delight in Carson Wentz's tough year after the Eagles pulled North Dakota's favorite son from their Sunday game against the Packers. Swany tells you why he thinks Wentz will rebound from this, and make the experts eat their words down the road. It's the Festivus Airing of Grievances, this week, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast!

    Ep. 133: Spiking Covid Numbers Cast Doubt on NDSU's Winter Football

    30/10/2020 Duración: 01h08min

    There's no way to soft sell it. With North Dakota's spiking covid numbers, unless something changes, the ability of North Dakota State to play an eight-game football schedule this winter is in serious doubt. It's a numbers game, and the State of North Dakota is not on the right side of the numbers. If the current situation remains the same, or worsens, the prospects of seeing the Bison --- and another trip to Frisco --- are in jeopardy. Swany and Nolan discuss the stark realities, and talk about some of their Halloween favorites. This week, there's plenty of tricks and treats, on the Bison Illustrated Podcast!

    07/10/2020 Duración: 01h04min

    North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance became the highest profile player in College Football this year to declare for the NFL Draft.

Lance is expected to be a first round NFL Draft pick this spring. Swany and Nolan discuss NDSU's only game this fall, their takeaways, and what they're looking forward to for the eight game spring Missouri Valley Football Conference schedule.

    30/09/2020 Duración: 01h08min

    North Dakota State finds itself in the national spotlight this weekend as Trey Lance and the Bison take on Central Arkansas. Nearly 2/3 of NFL teams will have scouts at the Fargodome to watch Lance, Dillon Radunz, and the rest of the Herd. The Bison will raise their 8th national championship banner in nine years, and display their high-powered offensive machine. Swany takes the debate stage to tell you why NDSU is holding itself back by staying FCS. Oh, and we preview the key storylines headed into the only Bison Football game this fall.

    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 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.

    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!

Things got even brighter this week after ESPN's venerable Mel Kiper Jr. told Mike Greenberg that NDSU's Trey Lance could be in a three-man race for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Believe that! Swany, Nolan, and Chase Miller talk about Lance's surge, and how he'll be surrounded with plenty of offensive firepower. The guys switch gears to recap a big week for Bison hoops as Dave Richman added two new assistant coaches, and some key pieces to their two-time defending Summit League champion roster. Fire up the grills, pull up a lawn chair, and crack a cool one with your pals at the Bison Illustrated Thundering Herdcast Podcast!
