09:52 AM ET 08.31 | North Dakota State coach Craig Bohl keeps a note that he received from his former position coach at Nebraska. "You have one shot at Kansas State," the note said. "Make the most of it." Bohl and the Bison did just that, knocking off the defending Big 12 champion Wildcats 24-21 in a stunner on Friday. Was it as stunning as Appalachian State's win over perennial power Michigan in 2007, the most famous of victories by NCAA Division I championship subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) over bowl subdivision (Division I-A) powers? Perhaps. The note came from Jerry Moore, who coached Appalachian State to that victory. Moore and Bohl are friends, bound by Nebraska. Bohl played there in the late 1970s, while Moore was an assistant there.

K State lost a ton of experience from last year. I had them picked to finish in the lower half of the conference with only Iowa State and Kansas finishing lower. Now I'll need to reconsider my rankings.

North Dakota st and South Dakota st should join the Big-12. The Missouri Valley conference is dead.

Kudos to NDS on their upset of Kansas State. As much as I respect him, I wonder if there was a teensy bit of distraction for coach Bill Snyder yesterday leading up to the game.

Or --- was it really an upset.

Or even the UM game as they were down those years ripe for upset. But good for NDS.

There's one of Kelly doing his best John Kerry impersonation in explaining why ND is dropping the Michigan game from their future schedule (looks at all-time record and understands why)................impressive win over the Temple Owls though.
