GFP AWARD…A South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks conservation officer who lost his battle with cancer this past summer is being honored in the naming of the agency's Boating Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award.
Brook Brown served as conservation officer for Hamlin County in northeastern South Dakota. This past spring he was named recipient of the boating officer award. Now his peers have dedicated the award in his memory, and it will be known in the future as the Brook Brown Boating Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award.
One of his achievements on Lake Poinsett, where water levels peaked at five feet above the ordinary high water mark, was to work with the lake association to create a no-wake boating zone to protect shoreline and structures.
The award is sponsored by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators and is presented annually to the boating law enforcement officer who has made outstanding contributions to the field of boating law enforcement.
BIG SKY MESS UP…The Big Sky Conference says officials failed to call a penalty near the end of Northern Colorado's 28-27 victory over North Dakota on Saturday.
The Bears had 12 men on defense when they stopped North Dakota on fourth-and-1 from the Northern Colorado 34 with 35 seconds left. Instead of a 5-yard penalty and a first down, Northern Colorado took over and ran out the clock.
Big Sky Commissioner Doug Fullerton called it "a major downgrade for every individual on the crew." The error, however, doesn't change the game's outcome. Both teams finished 5-6.
Last year, an incorrect penalty wiped out a Bears touchdown in the final seconds of their season finale, costing them a shot at avoiding an 0-11 season.
IDAHO STATE COACHES…Idaho State football coach Mike Kramer has announced he is not retaining four assistant coaches after the team posted a 1-10 mark and went 0-8 in the Big Sky Conference.
Kramer said offensive line coach Derrick Roche, secondary coach Daniel Drayton, defensive line coach Todd Bates and linebackers coach Rudy Griffin will not be on the staff next season.
Kramer said he wasn't sure if he would be the Bengals' defensive coordinator next season.
Idaho State gave up an average of 55.2 points and 356.6 yards rushing per game, last among 121 Football Championship Subdivision teams in both categories.
RUTGERS TO BIG TEN…Rutgers is joining the Big Ten Conference.
Rutgers will be leaving the Big East, where it has been competing since 1991. The move follows Maryland's announcement on that it was departing the Atlantic Coast Conference to join the Big Ten in 2014. Rutgers will be the Big Ten's 14th member.
Rutgers also plans to join its new conference in 2014, though the Big East requires 27 months' notification for departing members. The Scarlet Knights will have to negotiate a deal with the Big East to leave early.
BIG TEN COACHES…Big Ten football coaches say they will have little influence on scheduling and divisional alignments once Maryland and Rutgers join the conference.
Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema says when Nebraska joined the conference he wasted a couple of days drawing up his ideal plan but had no input. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said conference leadership has handled past expansion well and believes adding Maryland and Rutgers will pay off.
Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said that with the money the conference believes expansion will generate he'd like to see players in some way get a share.
