MOORHEAD - Maroon and gold is in the bloodstream of Rachel Bergeson. Her earliest memories are of Concordia Cobber athletic events. It seemed fitting that Bergeson was named athletic director by the college on Wednesday, completing a road that's traveled every job imaginable at the school.

She twice filled the role of interim athletic director, most recently after Jeff Bretherton resigned back in April.
FARGO - It's a game changer for Division 1 college football that will have coaches and players adjusting their depth charts. The NCAA approved a rule change for the 2018 season that will allow a player to play four games in a season and still retain its redshirt status. The rule for an athlete is that you get five years to play four. In the past, if a player got on the field for even one play, that counted as a full season. Now under this new rule, a true freshman could play up to four games and still maintain their four years of eligibility.
