PHILADELPHIA - Carson Wentz is returning to the field. The Philadelphia Eagles announced Monday morning that the former North Dakota State standout has been medically cleared for contact and will start for the Eagles next Sunday when they host the Indianapolis Colts. Wentz has been rehabbing for the last nine months since tearing his ACL and LCL in his left knee December 10th against the Los Angeles Rams. Wentz's original goal was to be ready for the season opener September 6th against Atlanta, but had not been cleared for contact.
FARGO - There are only a couple of FCS schools that can brag about having first round NFL Draft Picks at quarterback. UC Davis with Ken O'Brien, Alcorn State with Steve McNair, Morehead State with Phil Simms and of course NDSU with Carson Wentz. The Bison opponent this week is also a part of this exclusive club, Delaware and Joe Flacco. Flacco was a standout for the Blue Hens in 2007, leading them to the national championship game. During that playoff run, Delaware beat Northern Iowa on the road, a team that Chris Klieman was an assistant with.
FARGO - When North Alabama takes the field at the Fargodome Saturday afternoon, they hope this is a preview of the not-so-distant future for their football program. The Lions have begun their Division 1 transition this year, moving up from the Division 2 ranks. UNA was one of the most successful programs at the D-2 level, winning three straight national titles, the only program to ever do that. UNA will play as an FCS independent this fall, before officially joining the Big South Conference next July. They will become eligible for the postseason in 2022.
The Kolpack and Izzo podcast returns with a closer look at North Alabama and the difficulty for the Lions as they transition up to Division 1. UNA has the rare distinction of being the only team in D2 history to win three straight national championships, something the Bison never did. At the 13 minute mark, Jeff and I have a special treat as all-time NDSU great Jeff Bentrim joins. Bentrim reflects on the NDSU-UNA national title game in 1985 and also offers his thoughts on who's the greatest quarterback in Bison history.
FARGO - NDSU freshman James Kaczor may look like your typical 18 year old football player, but when you dig a little deeper, you find out that he's experienced more in 18 years than some have in a lifetime. Kaczor is playing as a true freshman with the Bison. He was a highly sought after recruit out of St. Cloud Tech High School, turning down offers from Columbia and South Dakota State.
Jeff Kolpack and Dom Izzo return with their weekly podcast and start off with a review of NDSU’s season opening win over Cal Poly and a closer look at the future schedules of the Missouri Valley Football Conference. At the 17:00 minute mark, Park River head coach Robert Goll joins the show to talk about his former player Jackson Hankey, who won two state titles with the Aggies and made his debut with the Bison last weekend, picking up six tackles.
MOORHEAD - MSU Moorhead won its season opener for the third straight year last week and Darius Woods-Steichen was a big reason why. The former Waubun standout may not have been a household name for Dragon fans before the game, but he sure is now. Woods-Steichen has been receiving high praise from his coaches after his game against Crookston. The sophomore defensive end registered two sacks and three tackles in what has been the most time he has seen the field since playing for Waubun in 2015.
