      As a newcomer to NSIC football and how it operates, is there a preseason media day for the conference like in other conferences?

        They tried that about a ecade back for only one or two years in conjunction with Vikings training camp. It flopped.

          Yes, they brought the coaches and mostly the QBs to Mankato. Just too many miles to put on. I'd do a remote online to save on the travel.

                Mankato has to travel to Sioux Falls for both.

                USF has to travel across the street to play Augie.

                I just noticed that K-O Stadium should be rocking:

                Bemidji (2) on 9.10.22
                Northern St. (7) on 9.24.22
                USF (4t) on 10.1.22
                Mankato (4t) on 10.22.22
                Duluth (3) on 11.5.22

                Feels like the road to the NSIC championship runs through K-O!

                  I see that Morningside was the #1 preseason pick again. What a dynasty.

                      I’m going to try to get down to that Northern/Augie from Bismarck. Should be a good one.

                        Bittersweet - means winter is coming too. Joy!

                        But yes, I am ready for college football to come back - aside from the fact that the Stangs will likely follow the preseason predictions. Ugh.

                          UMD also going to both Aberdeen and Sioux Falls this year in back to back weeks.

                            Last season Augustana had all those teams at their places, minus NSU, add Wayne on the road.

                              As I've gotten older I'm started to dislike summer more and more. Turing into a fall and spring time guy.
