Around the Web in 7 Days: Scouting NDSU
Welcome to one of KUsports.com’s latest blog features: Around the Web in 7 Days.
Each week this season, we’ll take a look around the world to find out what others out there are saying about the Jayhawks and their game that week.
For the most part, our focus will be on the papers and web sites that cover that week’s opponent, however, every once in a while I’m sure KU — and its opponents — will pop into the national spotlight for better or for worse. The goal here is to bring you a slightly different perspective on the week’s game and allow you to better understand what’s coming up on Saturday (or Thursday, or Friday, as the case will be in 2010).
In addition to the links I provide, please feel free to add any that I may have missed in the comments section below.
Some weeks, this feature will be easier than others. When Big 12 play starts that will certainly help and, of course, any ranked teams the Jayhawks come up against likely will get plenty of press.
This week, our journey takes us mostly to Fargo, N.D., where the local papers have been busy previewing Saturday’s opener between the Jayhawks and the North Dakota State Bison.
Enjoy the linkage and be sure to check back with KUsports.com throughout the week — including gameday — for the latest information and breakdowns of this week’s contest.
