Ben Bolinske transferring back to his home town university is a bitch move

I respected the hell out of Ben Bolinske’s decision to leave his hometown of Minot, N.D., in 2015.

I questioned his decision of heading to the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, N.D., after high school because I didn’t think he was a good fit there.

Plus,  he went from the second shittest city in North Dakota to the first shittest city in North Dakota. This guy clearly doesn’t know shit about cities in North Dakota.

But I also give him credit for trying to chase his dreams.

On Wednesday, it was announced that Bolinske is headed back to his hometown because of personal reasons and will play for Minot State next season.

Dude, you’re fuckin’ 10-ply. This goddamn kid is such a little bitch. In 2014 and 2015 he owned high school football in North Dakota. He was a three-time North Dakota Class AAA All-State first team QB. His high school squad finished runner-up in both of those seasons and he was named ND Senior Athlete of the Year.

Little six-foot Ben Bolinske dominates Class AAA football and thinks he’s a real football player so he does what any another Senior Athlete of the Year would do and tries to play Division-I ball.

Except he can’t.

And then he says what anyone else would say when they can’t be tough enough to play Division-I ball, “it’s because of personal reasons.”

Buddy, the only personal reasons you have are that you miss your mommy and you want to go back to the high school glory days.

Now, he’ll head back to MSU and probably do pretty well for the Beavers. He’ll drink on the weekends with his high school buddies and in four years after his eligibility is all used up, he’ll start selling insurance.

Or, this is even better, he’ll knock someone up and his football career will end before that.

Side note: his pinned tweet on Twitter is his announcement that he was planning on attending UND.





Dude Asks U of A to Cancel Game against NDSU in 2022

Yeah, this is an old story but I don’t care. And I’m actually surprised that this open letter didn’t blow up on social media like your typical “An Open Letter to My Sister” or “An Open Letter to My High School Basketball Coach.”

Travis Halm, nice try but your open letter to the University of Arizona will never be taken seriously and frankly it was a waste of your time.

On April 28, this dude posted an article to “The Tailgate Society” suggesting that the Sept. 17, 2022, football game between North Dakota State and Arizona should never be played.

Halm wrote, “The North Dakota State Bison have a very good football team which plays incredibly physical and smart football which often grinds even the best of opponents to a halt. This game could very likely be a good test for your squad; however, we are here to suggest you take whatever measures necessary to make sure this game is never played in 2022.”

He’s not wrong. NDSU is a solid squad but Halm and everybody else in the world don’t know what the Bison will look like in 2022. That’s five damn years away. There is going to be five more FCS champions crowned before this game takes place.

The Bison could win the next five titles or they could have five straight losing seasons, which won’t happen but never know.

Halm goes onto to write about the FBS opponents the Bison have defeated in recent years and ends his open letter with this:

“I hope you’re not too late, Arizona. From all of your FBS friends in the upper midwest, we hope you can find a way to rescind your invitation to the Bison in 2022. As you have now been warned, the Bison are capable of beating many FBS teams in some of the most humbling ways possible. Their fans will never let you hear the end of it, and I hate to say it, we’ll probably have to say “I told you so” as well. At the end of the day, none of us want to see what the Arizona sun can do to thousands of Bison fans who make the trek, win or lose.

Yours, with love

Disgruntled fans of Kansas, Minnesota, Kansas State, Iowa State and Iowa.”

THIS GAME IS FIVE GODDAMN YEARS AWAY. “I hate to say it, we’ll probably have to say “I told you so” as well.”

NDSU is capable of beating the Wildcats there is no question about that but come on dude, this game is half a decade away. Let’s focus on this season before we start asking Arizona to take us off its schedule.



Davey Richman Has the Tools, Now Make the Moves

Five days ago ESPN Staff Writer Myron Medcalf wrote an article reviewing who has the best job in every state for men’s college basketball.

You can find the 2,284-word article here.

With no surprises at all, Davey Richman, North Dakota State men’s basketball coach was dubbed to have the best job in North Dakota for college basketball coaches.

Medcalf wrote, “Coach David Richman has access to the new $50 million Sanford Health Athletic Complex, which opened last year. It’s a gem few programs outside the Power 5 can match.”

The Sanford Health Athletic Complex (SHAC) is a gorgeous facility and most universities in North Dakota can’t compete with a $50 million building.

I mean look at some of these other gyms in North Dakota. Fuckn awful with a capital A.

And there is no reason for me to show you the gymnasiums of the NAIA or NJCAA schools or the NCCAA school.

NDSU Basketball Twitter account tweeted this out after the Medcalf article was posted:

Is life as a Bison good? I’m not entirely sure. A few months ago starting point guard Khy Kabellis announced he was transferring from NDSU.

That $50 million facility sure couldn’t keep a guy that started all 30 games his sophomore year and averaged 11.2 points per game and 33.2 minutes per game in Fargo.

Richman has all the tools but now he has to get the student-athletes. And yes maybe they will come. There might be student-athletes who never thought about NDSU before but decide to take a visit because of the new gym. Only time will tell.

This gym is badass. One of the best I’ve ever been in but if the Bison don’t produce a good product on the court it doesn’t matter how much your fancy facility costs.
