Break time is over. Back to blogging.
Check out this week's Sports Illustrated. Mayville, N.D., is mentioned. SI went to Cedar Falls, Iowa, to do a story on the Northern Iowa men's basketball team, coached by Mayville native and former Sioux standout Ben Jacobson.
The headline of the four-page spread reads "Iowa's got a secret." Pretty good recruiting tool for a mid-major like Northern Iowa. Of course, the day before the magazine appeared in the mailbox, Northern Iowa lost at Wichita State. The Panthers are now 16-2. The SI jinx strikes again.
By the way, Brett Favre is on the cover. That can't be good news for the Vikes on Sunday.
