Lloyd Omdahl: Who has a dog in the fight?

Schnepf: New NDSU athletic director boasts successful track record
Fargo If Matt Larsen wasn’t good enough to be the athletic director at Stony Brook, then why is he qualified to be the next athletic director at North Dakota State? It’s certainly a legitimate question after the 40-year-old Larsen – who spent the last 19 years working in the...

Growing Together: Vines for fruit, flowers and fall color
