    As of Friday, there are 83 players practicing. Add the 12 signees and you get to 95. They still have room for 4 because the school limits them to 99 players. Some players like Taormina have gotten jobs and moved on- DE Brandon Thomas transferred to NDSU along with several coaches leaving. The QB position is completely open with Schlichte coaching at Northern, Ekowa starting medical school and Kaiser is evidently graduating. Lots of question marks.

      Thought I saw that JD is returning for next season?

        I thought so to but now I'm hearing he is going to med school. It will be interesting to see who leaves and who stays.

            Yes he is coaching at the University of the Cumberlands as a running backs coach.

              Dang... never knew he had left. He was quietly the longest tenured coach (technically) for the Mavericks. Will definitely miss him.

                  Will the actual game count just as a stand alone game or count for next season? Will individual stats be counted towards career stats for players?

                    Great question. I'm guessing it could go under the 2020-21 season. NDSU had only one game last fall- which I assume could go on their record. Unprecedented territory.

                      For those interested- MSU named a new president today. It wasn't the candidate from Northwest MO. Not sure about his feelings towards athletics, but the last school he was at didn't have football.

                      The Board of Trustees of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities has named Edward Inch to serve as the 13th president of Minnesota State University, Mankato. The appointment will become effective July 1, 2021.

                      Since 2016, Dr. Inch has served as provost and vice president for academic affairs at California State University, East Bay, a highly diverse, student-centered, community-engaged university with more than 14,500 students and 850 faculty.

                      From 2011 to 2016, he served California State University, Sacramento as dean of the College of Arts and Letters, where he led an academic unit comprised of 10 departments enrolling more than 29,000 students. His accomplishments in this role include collaborating with faculty, staff, students, and community partners to design and write the university strategic plan, developing processes to improve the diversity of staff and faculty applicant pools, and collaborating with faculty leadership to improve College retention and graduation rates.

                      Other engagements include serving Capital University (OH) as provost and vice president for academic affairs (2009 to 2010) and Pacific Lutheran University (1986 to 2009) in several capacities, including dean of the School of Arts and Communication, chair of theDepartment of Communication and Theatre, and director of forensics.

                      He holds a bachelor’s degree from Western Washington University, a master’s from the University of Oregon, and a doctorate from the University of Washington.

                        What happened to Davenport? My first impression is that his attitude for a new football stadium isn’t any better than the current president :/

                          He retired- I think it was after 18 years. I heard something once about his health but I don't know exactly what.

                          I look at the stadium- one of the best for actually WATCHING a game- as a safety issue. A walk around the old gal shows accidents waiting to happen, not just for fans but also players.

                            The obvious concern I have is his strong ties to west coast academia. Admins out there tend to not be very friendly to football, and especially at our level. That being said, there isn't enough information to form a proper opinion of his views - so I'll leave it at that.

                            Though, during his tenure at Pacific Lutheran University, they won three of their four national championships in football (and six in other sports) - so I'll hold out hope that he's seen the importance of small school athletics.

                            I also found this to be a bit curious, but I'm not going to read into it too much:

                              I didn't realize Davenport was gone until I read the announcement they hired a new guy - I guess his retirement was reported on back in August. Maybe I read about it then. What was the general consensus about him? I wasn't around enough to form a proper opinion of him, though I did hear him speak once. He didn't really strike me as the aggressive leader needed at a MinnState school, but those are just my passing thoughts.

                              IMO, that entire section of campus needs an overhaul if they plan to keep the stadium in that location. Dump the baseball field entirely, move the pitch to the T/F grounds - and build some walking bridges over Stadium Road for goodness sakes.

                              It'll never happen, but one can dream.

                                They recently made renovations to the baseball field so I don’t think that’s happening
