By |2020-03-16T20:01:09-05:00March 16th, 2020|Categories: Featured, Latest Headlines, Local News, News|

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz announced on Sunday that all K-12 schools in the state will be closed for eight days starting on Wednesday. The measure was put in place to give teachers time to plan for distance learning to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. Many kids rely on school lunches to stay fed during the day, and with the announcement that schools will be closing, several restaurants have said they will give free lunches to any students who need them while they're home from school. Here's a list of places offering free meals for pick up: Kato Burger Pit [...]

2019 Mavericks Football: A Trip To the Final and a Year To Remember

By |2020-01-09T16:28:13-06:00January 9th, 2020|Categories: Blogs|

Minnesota State University, Mankato’s football team began its 2019 season as it ended - on the road - with one big difference. On September 7, in Marshall, Minnesota, MSU thumped Southwest Minnesota State, 38-23 igniting a 14-game winning streak. Two and a half months later, on December 21 in McKinney, Texas, MSU’s dream of a national championship was extinguished by West Florida. The Argonauts outlasted the Mavericks 48-40 in the NCAA DII championship game. But the Mavericks didn’t go quietly into the winter solstice, and their banner season was an exhibition in week-by-week, 1-0 excellence, including three playoff wins over [...]

Mavericks Flip the Script, From Tragedy to Epic.

by John Maiers It seemed so improbable, but, turns out, not impossible. Ask any of the 5,327 fans that jammed the Verizon Wireless Center in downtown Mankato Saturday night. Sports theatre on the biggest stage around. Minnesota State Mankato and Bowling Green clashed to determine the WCHA Playoff Champion and the privilege of holding high the Jeff Sauer Trophy awarded to the winners. The Mavericks playing host as regular season champs and home-ice titans, with the red-hot Falcons playing team-of-prey, confident, owning a two-game series sweep of the Mavericks in mid-December in Bowling Green, Ohio. It took 61 minutes and 37 [...]

Vikings And Jaguars Start Joint Practices Wednesday

By |2019-01-25T09:44:08-06:00January 25th, 2019|Categories: Blogs|

The Minnesota Vikings and the Jacksonville Jaguars start there joint practices against each other Wednesday and will follow it up with a preseason game at U.S. Bank Stadium this weekend. Joint practices have been the subject of much scrutiny recently because of the number of fights occurring during them around the NFL this preseason. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer made it clear that any player that fights during practice will be sent home. In reality, this will likely only stop younger guys trying to make the roster from fighting, I don't think a veteran player would be too afraid of taking the rest of [...]

Tuesdays Take With Jay

Recently I have been giving my opinions on the current state of the Minnesota Twins and previews of the upcoming Minnesota Vikings season, but this week I have decided to switch it up and give a quick preview of the Minnesota Timberwolves upcoming season. The Timberwolves lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Houston Rockets after making the playoffs for the first time in 13 years last season. Even though they ended the playoff drought I still look at last season as a failure. The team has two guys who are legit superstars in Jimmy Butler and Karl Anthony-Towns, and another [...]
