JAMESTOWN COACH…Northern State men's basketball assistant coach Justin Wieck has been named the Jamestown College men's basketball coach. Wieck was formally introduced as the Jimmies' head coach at a press conference on the Jamestown campus.

NDSU FB…North Dakota State looks to defend its Missouri Valley, and national, football titles this fall.
The Bison had several young players on the field, but head coach Craig Bohl says NDSU’s not reloading. 97636 :15 “at that point”.
A key focal point for the opposition will be defensive back Marcus Williams: 97637 :26 “of a game”.
NDSU led the nation in kickoff return yardage – Bohl, who sits on the NCAA rules committee, was asked what impact changes in kickoff rules might have. 97638 :30 “the hang time”.
Bohl says changes were implemented to prevent concussions, and to preserve one of the more exciting plays in football.
