Thanks to all who entered the sign contest, trying to win a pair of tickets to Saturday's North Dakota State football game against Delaware State at the Fargodome.
The idea was to come up with a clever sign that Bison fans could hold up behind the ESPN College GameDay set in downtown Fargo.
We were somewhat limited because we could couldn't choose some of the more, ahem, racy ones. (Soft-core example: "What's green and gold and would look great on Samantha Ponder? This guy!")
But we still had some great entries. The two (family friendly) ones that I liked the best were:
*JOHNNY MANZIEL PAYS BROCK FOR HIS AUTOGRAPH -- (I thought it was a nice play on a current issue in college football involving the Texas A&M quarterback).
**THIS IS THE BIGGEST THING TO HAPPEN TO FARGO SINCE THE INVENTION OF HOTDISH -- (Not a knockout, but good localization of what is sure to be a huge gathering on downtown Fargo's main drag.)
The people who submitted those each won a pair of tickets to Saturday's game.
And best of all, we didn't have anybody enter "Sioux suck!"
Some of the other better entries included:
*WHO NEEDS THE ROSE BOWL WHEN YOU HAVE CRAIG BOHL?
*WHY THE HELL ARE WE DOWNTOWN?
*IS THIS THE TICKET LINE FOR THE GOPHERS GAME?
*THE FBS HAS BOWLS, THE FCS HAS BOHL
*ROSE ARE RED, VIOLETS ARE BLUE, WE ARE THE BISON, 'BAMA WE WANT YOU
*BISON 21, VIKINGS 3
*I WON CORSO'S CORNHOLE CHALLENGE
*BISON -- THE ONLY DIVISION I NICKNAME IN NORTH DAKOTA
*MY ARMS ARE TIRED
*THE ONLY "BOHL" KANSAS STATE WILL SEE THIS YEAR (with a picture of Craig Bohl)
*HEY SAMANTHA, WANNA COME OVER AND SEE MY WOODCHIPPER?
*RAY LEWIS ON ESPN? NO WAY!
*WE DON'T REALLY TALK LIKE THE MOVIE
*NORTH DAKOTA: AT LEAST WE'RE NOT DELAWARE
*CHUCK NORRIS WEARS BROCK JENSEN P.J.s
