Same rules on respect. No teaser about Steelers Final Score. Kind of a bummer of a weekend.

EXCEPT...this is my opportunity to write about the four-time FCS National Champion North Dakota State Bison!

Gutting out a tough win against a never-quit conference foe in Illinois State, the Bison clinched their fourth consecutive national championship on a five-yard touchdown run with under a minute to go by quarterback Carson Wentz. The Bison would have the extra point blocked, but an interception on the game's final play would seal the 29-27 win - making NDSU the first school in FCS (formerly Division I-AA) to win four consecutive national championships.

Take THAT, Oregon and Ohio State.

Not really, but it's a big deal and alumni across the country are beyond excited. Another move for me means it'll be even harder for them to find me and ask for money, although they did identify me from this site previously. Maybe they'll do it again. I don't know, but I'm excited.

Have fun watching the Ravens and Patriots. Good news is one of these teams will lose, but the bad news is one will be in the AFC Championship game...again. Oh well. Onto next year.
