    Perhaps their auditioning for a return to D2... No Way! Sometimes they have to look at USF quick success in the NSIC and wonder.

    Probably want maximum competition for their run at another national championship.

      Not interested in a political discussion either, but I think the current target is July.

      And, for what it's worth - South Dakota is a top 2-3 state in terms of vaccination rates. Obviously they are a lot smaller, but all things being equal - that's where they fall.

      Anyway, is Northern allowing fans at any scrimmages/games this spring? Maybe it was discussed but I didn't see it.
      Pretty sure there are going to be no restrictions in playing Mankato May 1st

        I believe now it’s going to be more than a scrimmage. Sounds like a game with 12 minute quarters.

          Cool, that's the one I was hoping for.

            I've never been to Aberdeen before, and a spring football game/scrimmage seems like a good time to go.

              Given how MSide was able to play toe-to-toe with Mankato (who's in the midst of a lot of changes)....MSide would do well in the NSIC. Steve Ryan has really built up that program has a great thing going there. They enjoy the local footprint of the GPAC, with rivals like NW and others within an hour of them. After having them scrimmage the NSIC during this Spring, it'll be interesting watching them in the playoffs here a few short weeks away.

                M'side is the betting favorite, but Grand View, Lindsey Wilson (Ky), Reinhardt (Ga) and probably Marian (In) again will be biggest challengers. Biggest question is how 'game ready' the fall teams (M'side & GVU) are since it seems they've only scrimmaged the past month or so, while the spring teams (LWC, RU and Marian) have played upwards of 8 full games.

                  So, did anyone see the scrimmage? Did it even happen?

                    It did. Northern was down a coach and still a lot of kids that were quarantine and still in the “return to play “ protocol so weren’t able to participate. Morning side got the best of them but it’s still hard to understand where they are at because they were down so many players and an OC. Offensive plays were very limited.

                    In two weeks they will travel down to Central Missouri for a pro-style scrimmage so hopefully everyone will be able to make that trip. If so, should have better understanding of where the strengths and weaknesses are.

                      Agree with that assessment. Some position groups were missing the top couple strings of players. While the scrimmage was great for those guys to get some playing experience, it certainly didn't represent the lineup that we will be seeing in the fall.
