BEAVER FOOTBALL 2004

Bemidji State Football

EASON PREVIEW

Y

outh movement... Influx of new talent... Rebuilding... Reloading... Choose the cliché you wish, but all are equally applicable to the 2004 edition of Bemidji State football. After a 2003 season which saw the program field an extremely experienced starting group which at times included as many as 10 seniors and 16 upper-classmen, 2004 will be the polar opposite. Bemidji State enters the 2004 season with just 24 players on its 91-man roster who appeared on the field in 2003, and just 16 who started a game. The theme for 2004 could easily be “a redshirt freshman has to come through for us,” as that statement will be true at nearly every position on the field, and on both sides of the ball.

OFFENSE

With the key exceptions of quarterback and running back, Bemidji State’s offense returns relatively intact from a 2003 unit which set a school record with five 40-point scoring games. As is typically the case, depth at the skill positions and along the line will be an issue, but the biggest question marks will be at quarterback and running back. • Quarterback BSU enters the fall auditioning a new quarterback for the first time in three years, but as was the case in 2002 when Jason Smith took the reigns there is some game experience at the position. “Determining a quarterback is the A-numberone question for the team this year,” ninth-year head coach Jeff Tesch said. Junior Nathan Sannes performed capably as Smith’s backup in 2003, and made two starts against Southwest Minnesota State and at Northern State. In his start against Southwest, Sannes completed 7 of 14 passes for 115 yards and two touchdowns, leading BSU to a 41-3 blowout victory. For the season, he appeared in seven games, completing 17 of 35 passes for 228 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He took 105 snaps under center and the team averaged 5.04 yards per play for him, better than the team’s season average of 4.84 yards per play. But Sannes should get intense competition from redshirt freshman Anthony Schreiber, who was electric during live action in the 2004 spring game. An extremely athletic run/pass combo player, Schreiber displayed an ability to throw the deep ball with touch while on the run. And despite a “down on contact” rule in effect for quarterbacks during the spring game, Schreiber displayed breakaway speed and agility which will require defenses to pay special attention to him as a runner. “If the season had to start tomorrow, Sannes would be our starter,” Tesch said. “But we have told both quarterbacks that we see both of them playing in games, including the season opener. “We need to figure out what each guy can do, and what plays we can run when they’re in the game,” Tesch added. True freshman Tom Prout enters the season as BSU’s number three quarterback, and true

freshmen Joe Stritesky and Brent Vollbrecht round out the depth chart behind him. • Running Back For the first time since Tesch became BSU head coach in 1996, the Beavers enter a season with the running back position undecided. During Tesch’s eight years in Bemidji, he has had the luxury of strapping the Beaver running game onto the backs of Eddie Acosta and Chris Meyer - the leading and second-leading rushers in school history. Entering 2004, there is no clear-cut leader at the running back position, and in fact no player on the depth chart has a carry at the position in his career. “Replacing Acosta is the number two concern on our offense,” Tesch said. “We’re going to have to take a ‘by committee’ approach until somebody steps up and wins the job.” The early leaders in the race for starting tailback include junior college transfer Ozzey Williams and redshirt freshman Tyler Olson, currently listed as one-two, respectively, on the depth chart. Olson goes 5-10, 200 and earned three weekly coaches awards while sitting out 2003 as a redshirt - two Special Teams Scout of the Week and one Offensive Scout of the Week honors. He is a powerful back, testing out with a 365-pound bench press during fall workouts - fifth-best on the team at any position. Williams has excellent size at 5-11, 230 pounds, and with soft hands and good speed can be split out into either the slot or wide receiver positions. Williams appeared at tailback and at both receiver positions during the 2004 spring scrimmage as coaches look to find ways to get him on the field and involved with the offense. “Tyler is a steady guy who knows our offense, and Ozzey is still learning the plays,” Tesch said. Redshirt junior Al Carvajal should also be in the mix at running back. He has displayed excellent speed in practice, but BSU’s coaching staff needs to see if his ability will translate onto the game field. Redshirt freshman Jesse Dennison rounds out the two-deep at running back. • Offensive Line BSU returns a two-year starter at center and experience at both tackle positions, including three-year starter Blaine Thomas at the right tackle, but will have little experience at guard and a shallow depth chart. “Our question marks on the line are definitely at guard and our depth,” Tesch said. “We return a guy who’s as quality a center as there is in the league and Blaine has played well at tackle.” In 2003, the line helped BSU record its school-record fifth consecutive season with 40 or more touchdowns scored (49) and 20 or more passing touchdowns (26), and protected quarterbacks Jason Smith and Nathan Sannes to produce a school-record sixth consecutive campaign with 2,000 or more yards passing (2,218). It also helped clear the way for running back Eddie Acosta, who graduated as the 10th-leading rusher in NCAA Division II history with 5,766 yards.

2004 Football Media Guide

BSU does have good size on the offensive line. The five players listed as starters on the prefall two-deep average 6-4 and 299 pounds, with a 335-pound right guard and a 300-pound right tackle. The backups are smaller, with three players under six feet tall and just one 300-pounder. The center position is held down by senior Brice Vollbrecht, who enters 2004 having made 22 consecutive starts at the position and should be in for an All-NSIC type season. Chase Pearson and Chris Riopelle are listed as the backups to Vollbrecht at center. Thomas holds down the right tackle position after starting 10 games there in 2003, his first season as a starter. He also could develop into an All-NSIC-type player with a strong season. Junior Rob Selb holds down the left tackle position. He started all 11 games at left tackle last year, and is one of just four players on the 2004 roster to start every game last year. Redshirt freshmen Charles Scott and John Keaveny are listed as the backups at left and right tackle, respectively, and true freshmen Nathan Mahlik and Jeremy Engleman round out the two-deep. The guard spots are tentatively held by players who saw action as reserves a year ago but overall are inexperienced. Brian Vollbrecht, sophomore brother of center Brice Vollbrecht, is pencilled in as the starting left guard. He played in four games last year behind All-America guard Bryan Stoffel. Senior Cole Scott, a 6-2, 335-pounder, is pencilled in at the right guard. He played in the season’s final two games a year ago, including a start at left guard in the NSIC Metrodome Classic win over Wayne State. “We have to find backups at guard,” Tesch said. Pearson, redshirt freshman Matt Davis and sophomore Rob Cook are currently pencilled in as the backups at guard. They’re followed by true fresmen Corey Speaker and Joe Holsapple. • Wide Receiver Bemidji State’s top three wide receiver positions are set, occupied by three returning players from 2003 who combined for 24 starts, 117 receptions, 1,627 yards and 18 touchdowns. That returning trio gives BSU perhaps the best three-man receiving corps in the NSIC. It was anticipated that the fourth receiver position would be similarly solidified by Preston Pettis, who missed the 2003 campaign with a knee injury. But Pettis suffered an injury to the opposite knee during the summer and will again be lost for the season, with his career as a football player has perhaps coming to an end in the process. Again, the search for a fourth receiver will be a treasure hunt through an inexperienced group of contenders. “Identifying a fourth receiver is the number three priority for our offense,” Tesch said. “Will it be a freshman? A junior-college guy? Or will we move Ozzey Williams to receiver? It’s really up in the air, and it might force us into more three-receiver formations than we’ve used in the past.” Senior Michael Nordyke led BSU in receptions (49) and receiving yardage (659) a year ago

SEASON

Bemidji State Football

PREVIEW

despite missing two early-season games with a thumb injury. An honorable-mention All-NSIC pick as a kick returner, Nordkye brings excellent speed to the receiver position and should again be one of the focal points of BSU’s passing game. Coaches are also expecting a breakout season from junior Chad Christianson. He finished third on the team with 31 catches for 459 yards last year, but hauled in five touchdown passes - second on the team. Christianson is a huge target at 6-2, 205, and has the physical tools to put together an all-conference type season. Senior Adam Noble tied the BSU single-season record with 10 touchdown receptions last year, finishing second on the team with 37 catches for 519 yards. He finished strong with seven catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns in the season finale, and looks to carry that success into his final campaign. He enters his final season needing seven touchdown catches to match the school career record, and should make an impact on the all-time Top 10 lists for catches and receiving yardage as well. “Nordyke has very good speed, Christianson is a good guy and Noble’s 10 touchdowns last year show you what he can do,” Tesch said. Sophomore Danny Rodgers is pencilled in as the starter at Pettis’ J receiver position, and indicating BSU’s lack of depth at inside receiver is also Nordyke’s backup at the Y. Rodgers played in three games last year and had one catch. Senior Rob Kucher will be a reliable backup receiver on the edges. He’s played in 22 games in his career and has 13 catches - including a career-high six in 10 games of work last year. Freshmen James Thompson, Randall Griffin and Jason Voigt round out the pre-fall two-deep.

WR Adam Noble

• Fullback / Tight End Bemidji State’s fullback and tight end positions have had roles on the field during the Tesch era, but little of that has translated into production on the stat sheet. This year, the team plans to focus more on the tight end and use that position to absorb some of the inside blocking assignments given to the slot receivers last year. Senior Nate Olson has held down a primary tight end/fullback role for BSU for the last few years, and enters 2004 atop the depth chart at tight end. Injuries limited Olson to just five games last year and nine over the last two years, and coaches hope he can return to his 2001 form when he accounted for 110 yards rushing and two touchdowns as a fullback. Junior transfer John Larson and redshirt freshman Daniel Nagengast back up Olson. There are three new faces listed at fullback, led by redshirt freshman Jeremy Gettel. A rock at 5-10, 220, Gettel may well be BSU’s mostpowerful player. He led the team in fall drills with a 385-pound bench press, which would have set a record for BSU’s offensive backs had it been charted in the spring when the team officially counts lifting records. Gettel will be relieved by true freshmen Jared Weems and Wyatt Lyness.

DEFENSE

Nowhere is BSU’s 2004 youth movement more apparent than on the defensive side of the ball. Gone is a highly-experienced 2003 defense which saw the Beavers start as many as eight seniors. In its place is a pre-season two-deep which features 10 freshmen, an incoming sophomore and just three players who started a game in 2003. In addition to the influx of new players, the BSU defense is undergoing a philosophical change for the second time in three years. The Beavers have switched their base formation to a 3-4 from the 4-2-5 alignment of the previous two seasons. Battle-hardened veterans hold down two of the three down-lineman positions, but youth and inexperience fill nearly every position behind them until you reach the cornerbacks.

Nose tackle will be held down by senior Gabe Rodriquez, who has been a three-year fixture on the Beaver defensive front with 18 career starts. He has 95 tackles in his three-year career and tied his career high with five tackles-for-loss in 2003. But Rodriquez will be pushed by true freshmen Dustin Martin and Justin Kaney, and perhaps by redshirt freshman Zach Stafford. Martin was perhaps BSU’s most highly-touted addition in its spring 2004 signing class and according to Tesch has the size and ability to excel at the Division II level. “The only question is whether he’s ready to play college ball right away,” Tesch said. The other defensive end position, which a year ago was held down by four-year starter Adam Coughlin, is a concern. Junior Barry Bigelow is pencilled in as the starter at that tackle position. Bigelow had a strong off-season and matched Gettel with a team-best 385-pound bench press in fall testing. Bigelow had eight tackles in reserve action last year. He’ll be backed up initially by Stafford, whom BSU’s coaches say has a chance to be “really good,” and redshirt freshman Seth Iverson, who while undersized brings good speed to the position. • Linebacker BSU will be doubling its contingent of linebackers on the field for 2004, going from two everydown backers in 2003 to four this year. Only one - senior Mitch Feierabend - had any appreciable playing time in 2003. In his first starting role as a football player, including his high school days, Feierabend finished third on the team with 67 tackles. He started all 11 games at the Will linebacker spot in 2003, but will move to the Mike position vacated by Jon

• Defensive Line Bemidji State’s defensive front will feature three down linemen in the new 3-4 scheme for 2004, and those three players may provide BSU with as solid and experienced a group as it will find on the defensive side of the ball. The end position will be held by junior James Midboe, who was slowed by injuries in 2003 after a stellar freshman campaign in 2002. He is BSU’s second most-experienced defensive player with 18 career starts at defensive end, including eight a year ago. He has 17 career tackles-for-loss and 10 sacks to his credit, and a healthy year should propel him into the ranks of the elite linemen in the NSIC. “We need Midboe to have an all-conference type season for us,” Tesch said. “He played all last year on a blown ankle and had surgery, but he’s close to 100 percent now.” Redshirt freshman Seth Iverson and senior Ryan Gall will back up Midboe. Gall had one tackle as a reserve in 2002. 2004 Football Media Guide

EASON PREVIEW

Aamot for 2004. “Mitch isn’t a prototypical linebacker, but he plays fast,” Tesch said. “He has great instincts and is a good hitter.” Beyond Feierabend, BSU’s linebackers will be young and inexperienced. “They’re so young even we don’t know who they are,” Tesch said. “The positions are really up for grabs.” Sophomore Ben Barrato, who recorded 38 tackles as a reserve and was typically BSU’s first linebacker off the bench in 2003, is pencilled in as the starting Will backer. Senior Billy Rodgers moves to Sam linebacker from safety, where he recorded 13 tackles as a reserve with one interception a year ago. Redshirt freshman Robert Molstad is the pre-fall starter at the Buck linebacker. Sophomore Tony Wanie notched seven tackles in five games as a backup linebacker in 2003, and is currently pencilled in as Feierabend’s backup at the Mike. BSU’s coaches have been impressed with Wanie, and he could compete for playing time as the season progresses. Redshirt freshmen Zach Christ and Josh Templin should also find their way into the mix. Beyond there, a mix of eight freshmen and transfers will battle to round out the depth chart. “They’re all going to get a chance, and they’re probably all going to play,” Tesch said. “A redshirt is going to have to come through for us at linebacker.” • Safety Safety play was perhaps the strength of BSU’s defense in 2003. Senior Marty Humeniuk led the NSIC in tackles en route to second-team all-conference laurels, senior Kurtis Woodard was both a pass-defender and run-stopper and was named honorable-mention All-NSIC while junior Josh Pomerleau was building a reputation as perhaps one of the NSIC’s fiercest hitters. All three have departed, and BSU will drop from three safeties on the field full-time to two under its new 3-4 scheme. Senior Kyle Rambow is listed as the pre-fall number one at falcon safety, and of the eight players listed on the depth chart at safety is the only one who played in 2003. However, that play came sparingly as he appeared in a career-low six games and recorded just seven tackles. Beyond Rambow, this year’s theme of “a redshirt or newcomer will have to step up” holds true. Redshirt freshmen Jeremiah Johnson and Jeremy Pachal are listed one-two at hawk safety, and redshirt freshman T.J. Schmitz is listed as Rambow’s breather at falcon. All three have good size for the position, in the 6-0, 200 range. Pachal is the biggest, with prototypical 6-0, 205 size. True freshman Ryan Swenson and redshirt Jason Kunz round out the depth chart at Falcon, while transfer freshman Jim Dervil and true freshman David Wicklund round out the hawks. • Cornerback Corner is the one position on defense where the Beavers appear rock-solid. BSU will start senior Torry Joubert, the 2003 NSIC co-leader in in-

4

terceptions, at the fox corner and junior Chris Canter, who has excellent leaping ability and has been perhaps BSU’s best one-on-one cover man over the last two years, at the bullet. “We’re solid at corner,” Tesch said. “Torry is one of the top-notch corners in the NSIC, and Canter has been one of the league’s top cover guys his entire career. We just need to avoid injuries at the wrong times.” After recording just two tackles in three games as a sophomore transfer in 2002, Joubert exploded onto the scene as perhaps one of the NSIC’s elite defensive backs in 2003. Appearing in all 11 games with four starts, Joubert rolled up 45 tackles (30 solo) and five interceptions in 2003. His five picks were most by a BSU player since Ryan McCrady also had five in 2000, and he tied Crookston’s Jay Schreiber for the NSIC lead in interceptions with 0.45 per game. Canter is BSU’s most-experienced defensive player with 20 career starts, and is perhaps the team’s best athlete. His score of 4.09 in the pro agility tests tied for the team lead, and only four players bested his vertical leap of 32 inches. Canter started nine games as a sophomore last year and piled up 31 tackles and two interceptions. He tied for ninth in the NSIC with nine total passes defensed (two interceptions, seven breakups). Behind Canter and Joubert, BSU has no experience at corner. The pre-fall two-deep lists seven players at corner, and only Canter and Joubert were even on the roster in 2003. As with nearly every position on the roster, redshirts and transfers will have to prove they can play at the Division II level if BSU is to have a hope of continuing its 2003 form when the team finished second in the NSIC in pass defense. Leading early-fall candidates to provide help at the corners include Corey Brewer and Terrell Phelps. Brewer is a junior-college transfer from Rainey River (Minn.). Similar in size to Canter at 5-9, 185, Brewer also brings tremendous athletic ability to the position. He timed out at 4.53 in the 40 during fall drills, best on the team, posted a 31-inch vertical leap and matched Canter’s 4.09 in the pro agility testing. Phelps, at true freshman, is also a burner with 4.53 speed and holds his high school’s all-time record in the 100m dash. Freshmen Marshall Hendrix and Willy Plancher will also have opportunities to compete at corner, and true freshman Josh Onesti rounds out the pre-fall depth chart as the fourth fox corner.

SPECIAL TEAMS

BSU’s punting and kicking games are in flux for the second consecutive season after the off-season departure of 2003 First-Team All-NSIC punter Jason Baez and placekicker David Hagen. Both jobs are open, but expected to be held down by true freshman Michael McDonald.

COACHING STAFF

Now entering his ninth season as BSU’s head coach, Jeff Tesch is tied with Winona State’s Tom Sawyer for the second-longest tenure in the NSIC behind only MSU-Moorhead’s Ralph Mi-

2004 Football Media Guide

cheli. Already BSU’s all-time leader in victories over conference foes and having tied the school record for fewest games coached to reach 30 wins, Tesch now approaches the ultimate coaching milestone - the career victories lead at Bemidji State. Tesch enters the 2004 season in second place with 47 career victories, and should BSU extend its school-record streak of consecutive winning seasons to seven he will do no worse than match H.J. Erickson’s all-time record of 53 wins at BSU. However, should he reach that milestone this year he will have done so in no more than 96 games, while it took Erickson 111 games in a 17-year career from 1938-54 to reach 53 wins.

SCHEDULE

With the defection of Minnesota-Duluth from the NSIC following the 2003-04 competition season for the North Central Conference, the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference drops to eight teams for 2004-05. As such, BSU will play four non-conference games for the first time since 1998. The Beavers open the season against Minnesota State for the third consecutive season and continue their annual “Beaver Bash” rivalry with NAIA Minot (N.D.) State. BSU will then travel to Chadron (Neb.) State for the return trip of a home-and-home with the Eagles which started in 2003, then host Wisconsin-River Falls for the first time to wrap up nonconference play. BSU’s NSIC schedule features home games against Concordia-St. Paul, Winona State and Minn.-Crookston. BSU is hosting Crookston for the second consecutive season, but welcomes Winona State to Chet Anderson Stadium for just the second time since 1997. The Beavers will travel to Southwest Minnesota State, Northern State and MSU-Moorhead. The Beavers will wrap up their 2004 season against Wayne State (Neb.) in the NSIC Metrodome Classic in Minneapolis, Minn. for the second consecutive season.

OVERVIEW

“We need the pre-season,” Tesch said. “We’re young in a lot of spots, but I relate to what Glen Mason said about Minnesota a year ago - if by chance we’re good this year, we’re going to be good for a long time. “We feel good about the redshirts we have on our roster,” Tesch said. “We just need to see how they’ll be in their first games. “We like their attitude and their eagerness. They are aggressive and flying around and are eager to show us what they can do. “Our skill guys are as good as we’ve ever had here,” Tesch added. “They’re athletes with excellent ability and we feel real confident in them.” However, the confidence BSU has in their skill players is tempered by concern with several key areas on their roster. “We are concerned about our [offensive] guards, and our kicking and punting games again - that part’s not good. “We’re going to have to grow up as we go.”

ntering his ninth campaign as the head coach at Bemidji State, Jeff Tesch has masterminded the most successful era of football in BSU history. After finishing a combined 4-16 his first two years at the helm, Tesch has ripped off a school-record streak of six consecutive winning seasons and pushed his career mark at BSU to 47-38. Under his guidance, the Beavers have won six or more games in each of the last six seasons – the longest such streak in school history. In fact, one has to add all of BSU’s wins from the 19 seasons prior to Tesch’s arrival in Bemidji to surpass the 47 wins he has put up during his eight-year run as head coach. For 2004, Tesch will have his sights set squarely on the program’s alltime record for coaching victories. He stands just five wins shy of H. “Jolly” Erickson, who won 52 games during a 17-year career from 1938-54. In 2002, Tesch toppled two significant coaching milestones at Bemidji State, becoming just the third coach in the history of the program to win 40 career games and becoming the program’s all-time leader in coaching victories over conference opponents. Tesch is the only coach in BSU history to oversee back-to-back eight-win campaigns, following an 8-3 season in 1999 with a school-record 9-2 march in 2000. The turnaround of the BSU program under Jeff Tesch has been remarkable. Upon being named the program’s 15th field general in May 1996, Tesch inherited a BSU program which had won just 16 games in its previous eight seasons combined and had suffered losing streaks of nine, 11 and 18 games in that span.

Growing Pains

Tesch’s rebuilding efforts came about slowly, as BSU finished 2-8 in each of his first two campaigns. His inaugural 1996 squad dropped its first six games to close out an eight-game losing skid dating back to the 1995 season before Tesch picked up his first win as a head coach in a 19-15 win against Minn.-Morris. The Beavers would later close out Tesch’s inaugural season with a 28-14 win over Southwest State in the Metrodome Classic, BSU’s first win in the ‘Dome since downing Augsburg, 23-7, to conclude the 1983 season. That victory capped a 2-8 campaign and helped set the table for the turnaround to come. BSU built upon the momentum of its season-ending win in 1996, picking up a 25-21 win over St. John’s (Minn.) in its 1997 opener. That win, highlighted by “The Catch” – a 47-yard touchdown bomb from Pat O’Connor to Ty Houglum as time expired – gave the Beavers back-to-back wins for just the second time in the 1990s and marked the team’s first win in a season opener since 1990. BSU would later pick up a 25-22 home win over NSIC rival Northern State before dropping its final two contests of the 1997 season to finish 2-8.

record and finishing third in the NSIC with a 4-2 league record. After a four-point loss to Minn.-Crookston in the season opener, BSU won three consecutive games for just the second time since 1985. The Beavers would later post a 4813 over Minn.-Morris and a 48-18 win over Minn.-Duluth to mark the program’s highest single-game scoring outputs since 1986, and its first 40-point efforts since a 47-46 loss to Southwest State to close the 1991 season. BSU’s six wins not only propelled Tesch to NSIC Coach of the Year honors, it marked the most wins for the program since John Peterson’s 1986 squad finished 6-4-1. BSU finished 4-2 against the NSIC, marking the first time since Peterson’s 1984 team (4-2) the Beavers won as many as four league games.

Tesch

The Arrival

The Beavers opened strong in 1999, serving notice that the successes of 1998 would not be a one-season flash-in-the-pan. BSU won its first three games, its best start since also opening 3-0 in 1985, en route to what would become just the second eight-win season in school history. BSU set a school record in 1999 by scoring 50 or more points in three different games. The first of BSU’s three half-century efforts came in a 5238 homecoming win over Wayne State (Neb.), Sept. 18. It marked BSU’s first 50-point scoring game since 1986 and was at the time the highest single-game scoring total for the Beavers since 1969. BSU would top the 50-point barrier twice more in ‘99 with a 54-7 win over Concordia-St. Paul, Oct. 2 and a 53-20 win over Minn.-Morris, Oct. 30. Then in 2000, a record-setting offense helped propel BSU to what was arguably the finest single-season performance in school history. Tesch’s 2000 squad became just the third team in school history - and first since 1944 - to open a season 4-0. The hot start propelled the Beavers to a school-record nine-win season, breaking the previous mark of eight wins set in 1984 and equalled in 1999. Behind first-team All-NSIC and honorable mention All-America running back Eddie Acosta and honorable mention all-league quarterback Geoff Martinson, the BSU offense established school records for single-season scoring (367 points), total offense (4,584 yards) and first downs (226) and single-game scoring (70 points vs Minn.-Morris). The 70-point effort was tied for the fifth-highest scoring performance in all of Division II in 2000 and was one of just 14 efforts of 65 or more points in the Division that year. Joined with an historic 65-63, quadruple-overtime Homecoming win over Southwest State three weeks earlier, BSU joined Northwest Missouri State as the only programs in Division II to top the 65-point plateau twice in 2000. BSU also closed strong in 2000, becoming one of just six teams in school history, and first in 36 years, to end a season with three consecutive wins. BSU’s strong 2000 campaign did not go unnoticed on the national scene. The Beavers finished ninth in the NCAA Midwest Regional Poll, used to select participants in the 16-team Division II national playoffs, and were 28th in the final AFCA Coaches Poll.

Championship Expectations

Bemidji State’s breakout 2000 season sent the team into 2001 as a favorite for the NSIC championship - a banner which the Beavers have not held since 1959. With the expectations also came national attention for the program. The Beavers were ranked 23rd in Lindy’s pre-season Division II national poll, and running back Eddie Acosta was named NSIC Pre-Season Offensive Player of the Year. While the 2001 edition of the Beavers may not have lived up to the pre-season expectations, BSU did finish 7-4 and led the NSIC in both total offense and passing offense. Along the way, BSU shattered 16 team offensive single-season records while 13 individual season records and more than two dozen individual career marks fall by the wayside. When it was all said and done, BSU had seven players named FirstTeam All-NSIC—the largest group in school history and equal to BSU’s total 2004 Football Media Guide

of First-Team All-NSIC players in 1999 and 2000 combined. Acosta was named NSIC Offensive Player of the Year, and Jason Leden earned his school-record fifth All-NSIC honor. An 0-3 start and a season-ending injury to Acosta, a consensus pre-season All-America pick, derailed BSU’s plans for the 2002 season early on, but Tesch rallied the troops with perhaps his finest coaching job since coming to Bemidji. No longer chasing conference titles or post-season glory, BSU instead looked inward and chose to play for the pride of the program. The Beavers rallied to go 6-2 in their final eight games and finished the season with sole possession of fourth place in the NSIC. BSU‘s 6-3 mark against the NSIC in 2002 tied the school record for league wins set in both 1999 and 2000. WR Ryan Welle was named First-Team All-NSIC, leading BSU’s largest group of All-Conference selections since 1998, and also earned a spot on an All-Midwest Region team. LB Jon Aamot earned second-team league honors and was named to two post-season All-Midwest Region teams. BSU opened the 2003 season 2-0, including a season-opening win over Minn. StateMankato which marked the program’s first victory over a North Central Conference opponent since 1976. But three losses in four games again would make the team’s quest for an NSIC championship an uphill battle. The Beavers rebounded and won four times in their final five starts, including a 23-15 win at Minn. State-Moorhead to retain the coveted Battle Axe for a fourth consecutive season. BSU’s late-season surge also included a thrilling 48-42 win at Northern State which saw BSU rally from a 21-point first-quarter defecit. The late-season charge helped BSU post a winning season for the school-record sixth consecutive year, a streak clinched when the Beavers returned two interceptions for touchdowns in a 45-21 win over Wayne State in the Metrodome Classic. BSU had three First-Team All-NSIC picks in 2003, most since 2001, and in total had nine players named to the All-Conference team.

Climbing the Charts

Tesch’s run at Bemidji State over the past eight seasons has him climbing a number of all-time coaching success charts at BSU. His 47 victories place him second on BSU’s all-time list behind only H.J. Erickson (52, 1938-54). Tesch has recorded 34 wins against NSIC competition, the most ever by a BSU head coach. In addition, Tesch’s 6-2 NSIC marks in both 1999 and 2000 and a 6-3 mark in 2002 established the school single-season record for league wins. Prior to Tesch’s arrival, no BSU team had won more than five conference games. Despite a slow start to his career, for the last six seasons the wins have come quickly for Tesch. He won his 40th career game in Year 6, while the only other two men to reach that plateau had careers of 10 and 17 years to reach it. And should he become BSU’s all-time leader in coaching victories in 2004, his ninth year at the helm, he will have reached the 52-win plateau

eight years faster than Erickson. BSU’s Sep. 29, 2001 win at Northern State was Tesch’s 30th at BSU, coming in his 57th game as the program’s head coach. That feat made Tesch the fastest head coach to reach 30 wins in BSU history. He broke the record previously held by Chet Anderson, who needed 59 starts to tally his first 30 victories. Tesch also remains in the hunt for the program’s career record for winning percentage by a head coach. He currently stands second behind Anderson at .553. Anderson posted a .555 winning percentage during his tenure.

Prior to Bemidji State...

Prior to being named head coach at BSU, Tesch spent 11 years as an assistant coach for annual NCAA Division II playoff contender North Dakota, where he assumed assistant head coaching duties in 1995. The Fighting Sioux captured at least a share of the North Central Conference championship three consecutive seasons before Tesch’s departure in 1996. In addition to coaching duties at North Dakota, Tesch helped the Sioux achieve a 92 percent graduation rate while serving as academic advisor. Prior to his UND appointment, Tesch spent one year as an assistant at Montana State, followed by a two-year stint as offensive coordinator at Central Missouri State. A former free agent with the Atlanta Falcons and a graduate of Moorhead State (Minn.) University, Tesch was inducted into the MSU Hall of Fame in the spring of 1998. In 1977, Tesch was the NCAA Division II receiving champion and still holds Dragon single-game and single-season records for receptions. In 23 years of coaching, Tesch has produced 12 All-America selections and five NFL draft picks. Jeff and his wife Susan have two children - daughter Tara and son Vincent. They reside in Bemidji.

n original member of Jeff Tesch’s coaching staff, Rich Jahner enters his ninth season as Bemidji State’s defensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator and his sixth season with the title of Assistant Head Coach. The evolution of the BSU defense under Jahner’s watch continued in 2003. The team allowed 24.6 points per game to give the Beaver defense six consecutive campaigns allowing less than 25 points per game, the longest streak at BSU in nearly 40 years. All-Region selection Marty Humeniuk led the NSIC in tackles and was the sparkplug of a BSU defense which finished third in the league in total defense and scoring defense. BSU assembled a streak of seven consecutive quarters without allowing a touchdown which overlapped the 2002 and 2003 seasons, and in 2003 forced 31 turnovers. Five BSU defenders were named All-NSIC in 2003, giving the BSU defense 10 All-Conference picks since switching to a 5-2 scheme in 2002, more than in the previous four years combined. In 2002, the defense posted a 37-0 shutout of Southwest State on Oct. 19 and did not allow Wayne State a point on offense in Jahner a 38-2 win on Sept. 28. BSU held Wayne State to just 147 total yards, the best effort by a Beaver defense since 1999. In 2001, LB Pat Engleright and DE Wallie Kuchinski earned First-Team All-NSIC honors to mark the first time since 1998 two BSU defenders were named to the first team. BSU’s defense was particularly fierce down the stretch in 2001, recording 38 tackles-for-loss and 13 sacks in the final four games while holding opponents to 17.5 points per game - seven points per game under its season average. Six of BSU’s 12 interceptions came in its final four games. Jahner orchestrated a defensive unit which allowed just 22.7 points per game in 2000, the best defensive performance in the Jeff Tesch era and best by any BSU defense since 1986 (16.5 ppg). Jahner’s defense opened the 2000 campaign with a 25-0 win over Minot State, marking the first shutout pitched by the BSU defenders since a 51-0 win over Mt. Senario (Wis.) in 1986. The Beavers then posted a second shutout in their record-shattering 70-0 win over UM-Morris, marking the first time the BSU defense had posted two shutouts in the same season since ‘85, when it posted three. It also marked BSU’s first shutout of a conference foe since ‘85, when it shut out Southwest St., 32-0. Jahner’s attack defense recorded 44 sacks in 1998, while the 1996 Beaver defense ranked nationally in turnovers, forcing 20 fumbles and 14 interceptions while scoring four defensive touchdowns. A member of the American Football Coaches Association, Jahner brings 13 years experience as a specialist in molding defensive units at the college level. He was selected to coach in the 1996 National Collegiate All-Star Game in Louisville, Ky. Prior to his appointment at Bemidji State, Jahner coached the linebackers and defensive backs at Lindenwood (Mo.) following a stint as the defensive coordinator for Valley City (N.D.) State. His first college coaching assignment came in 1990 when he worked with the defensive line at Central Missouri State. Jahner, 37, his wife Sheri, son Trace and daughter Maris reside in Bemidji.

RENT BOLTE

• Assistant Defensive Coordinator • Cornell College (Iowa) ‘98 • fifth season at Bemidji State

rent Bolte enters his fifth season on the Bemidji State coaching staff and his second as a full-time assistant coach. Bolte spent the 2002 season as an adjuct coach overseeing linebackers, and the previous two seasons was in charge of BSU’s receiving corps. Bolte received his promotion to full-time assistant coach in August, 2003. Bolte has developed a First- or Second-Team All-NSIC selection at his position specialty in each of his four years on Jeff Tesch’s staff. He kept that streak alive in 2003 when senior linebacker Jon Aamot earned SecondTeam All-NSIC honors. Aamot ended his career as BSU’s all-time leader Bolte in solo tackles and second in total tackles. In 2002, Bolte helped continue BSU’s recent tradition of strong play at the linebacker position. Aamot finished second in the NSIC in tackles per game and became BSU’s most-decorated player in 2002. He was named Second-Team All-NSIC, Second-Team All-Region by Daktronics, Inc. and Third-Team All-Region by Don Hansen’s Gazette. His 115 total tackles and 52 solo tackles were amongst the 10-best single-season efforts on record at BSU. Bolte spent the previous two seasons as BSU’s wide receivers coach and helped develop one of the NSIC’s best receiving corps. He coached a First-Team All-NSIC pick during both of his seasons at the position; Jason Leden in 2000 and Ryan Welle in 2001. Under Bolte’s tutelage, Leden left BSU as the program’s career leader in catches, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns (records since tied or broken), and in 2001 Welle set the school single-season record for receiving yardage. Before joining the BSU staff, Bolte spent 1999 coaching wide receivers and quarterbacks at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa. Bolte started and lettered four years as a linebacker at Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa. He helped the program capture the 1995 Midwest Athletics Conference championship and the 1996 Southern Division crown. He received All-MAC honors and still holds the school career tackles record.

MINOT

STATE

Aug. 28, 2003 // Bemidji, MInn. W, 12-10 (1-0 / 0-0 NSIC)

Sept. 6, 2003 // Minot, N.D. W, 48-0 (2-0 / 0-0 NSIC)

Bemidji State picked up its fourth interception of the afternoon in the game’s final seconds to turn away Minnesota State-Mankato, 12-10. Torry Joubert’s first career interception capped the four-pick day by the BSU secondary and helped seal Bemidji State’s first win over a current member of the North Central Conference since 1973. Linebacker Jon Aamot ended two consecutive Mankato drives with an interception in the end zone in the first quarter; Aamot had just one interception in 33 career games entering the season. Senior running back Eddie Acosta rolled up 151 yard and a touchdown on 33 carries. The 33 carries were most for Acosta since a 37-carry effort on Sept. 8, 2001 at St. Thomas, and his yardage total gave him his 23rd career 100-yard rushing game. BSU’s special teams struggled, as true freshman punter Jason Baez had a punt blocked and fumbled a snap on BSU’s first two drives, and freshman kicker David Hagen missed both of his PAT kick attempts. The Beavers won despite turning the ball over five times. Maverick safety Jared Ziemke had 10 tackles, two interceptions and recovered a fumble in the contest.

Bemidji State rode a dominant effort by its defense and a record performance by junior quarterback Jason Smith to a 48-0 shutout victory over Minot State, its biggest win in this, the fifth meeting of the “Beaver Bash” rivalry. BSU allowed just 133 yards of total offense, forced four turnovers, scored a touchdown on an interception return and allowed Minot State to run just one play - a second-quarter punt - on BSU’s side of the 50-yard line. The shutout was BSU’s first since a 37-0 win over Southwest State, Oct. 19, 2002. BSU has shut out Minot State twice in five all-time meetings and held it to less than 10 points three times. BSU allowed just 133 yards of total offense, including just 40 passing yards. It is the first time BSU has allowed fewer than 50 passing yards in a game since Oct. 2, 1999. Jason Smith helped support the stellar defensive effort, tying his career high with four touchdown passes. Eddie Acosta finished with 21 carries for 106 yards and a touchdown. It was his 24th career 100-yard rushing effort, lifting him past Michigan Tech’s Jim Van Wagner (4,788, 1973-76) for 22nd place on the NCAA’s career rushing leaderboards.

Sept. 13, 2003 // Bemidji, MInn. L, 22-43 (2-1 / 0-0 NSIC)

Sept. 20, 2003 // St. Paul, MInn. L, 14-28 (2-2 / 0-1 NSIC)

Oct. 4, 2003 // Bemidji, MInn. W, 23-15 (3-2 / 1-1 NSIC)

The 12th-ranked Chadron State Golden Eagles lived up to their billing in a 43-22 victory over Bemidji State. The game was a back-and-forth battle early on, with the teams tied at 14-14 at the end of the first quarter despite Chadron holding a twoto-one advantage in yards gained, 142-70. BSU had a spark of life midway through the third quarter, forcing a safety on a running play after a David Hagen punt pinned the Golden Eagles at their own one-yard line. BSU took the free kick and needed just six plays to score as Smith found Matt McElroy from 27 yards out. BSU’s two-point conversion attempt failed, leaving the Beavers staring at a 28-22 deficit. Chadron iced the game with another pair of Eisenreich scoring passes - both to Mike Wahlstrom - from 18 yards out with 46 seconds to play in the third and from 16 yards out with less than five minutes to play in regulation. The defense also did its part, holding BSU to zero yards of total offense on eight snaps in the fourth quarter. Chadron State rolled up 500 yards of total offense on a Bemidji State defensive unit which through two games in 2003 was one of the toprated units in the nation. BSU had allowed just 10 points and 411 total yards of offense in its first two games combined.

Concordia-St. Paul ran its winning streak over Bemidji State to four consecutive games and remained unbeaten all-time against the Beavers at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, posting a 28-14 win in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference opener for both teams. The game threatened to become a shootout early, with the offenses scoring on the first three possessions of the contest. From there, however, the pace of the game slowed and Bemidji State’s offense was able to generate just one drive covering more than 16 yards the rest of the contest. Until an 11-play, 83-yard touchdown drive which brought BSU within 28-14 early in the fourth quarter, the Beavers managed 32 plays for 28 yards over a span of nine drives. For the game, BSU managed just 217 yards of total offense, including just 14 net yards on the ground. BSU generated 159 of its 217 total yards on its two touchdown drives, but only 58 yards on its other 11 drives. Concordia-St. Paul improved to 4-1 all-time against Bemidji State with the win and has won each of the last four meetings in the series. The Golden Bears are 3-0 against the Beavers in St. Paul, winning by an average of 15.7 points per game.

For a half, it looked as if the Bemidji State football team would take the coveted Battle Axe, the fifth-oldest traveling trophy in Division II football, and plant it squarely between the eyes of the visiting Minnesota State-Moorhead Dragons. After all, the Beavers held a 17-0 lead at the break and outgained the Dragons on offense 245 yards to 31. MSU-Moorhead assembled a valiant second-half rally, eventually falling by just eight points, 23-15, on Bemidji State’s 77th annual Homecoming game. Eddie Acosta carried a school-record 48 times for 205 yards and one touchdown. During the contest, Acosta became the NSIC’s career leader in rushing touchdowns (41) and became just the 17th back in NCAA history to top 5,000 career yards. The Dragons managed just 31 yards of offense in the first half, and not a single Moorhead drive covered more than eight yards. The Dragons had minus-nine yards rushing on eight carries for the half. BSU’s defense held Moorhead to two punts and an interception on its three drives, and just 23 yards of total offense, in the fourth quarter to seal the Homecoming and Battle of the Axe victories. BSU has won each of the last four Battle of the Axe games.

Bemidji State struck first, taking the opening kickoff and assembling a 15-play, 80-yard touchdown drive, but Winona State answered with 34 unanswered points, including 20 in the third quarter alone, to blow open an eventual 40-21 Warrior victory. Junior receiver Michael Nordyke had a huge day for the Beavers, hauling in eight passes for 142 yards and a touchdown. BSU’s remaining receivers combined for 10 catches for just 38 yards in the contest. For the third time in four games, BSU failed to get a running game going. The Beavers managed just 97 yards on 37 carries and failed to score a rushing touchdown for the first time since Aug. 29, 2002 at Minn. State-Mankato. Bemidji State’s offense imploded in the third quarter, turning the ball over on each of its first three snaps from scrimmage in the half with all three turnovers leading to Winona State touchdowns. In total, BSU ran just six plays for a loss of 18 yards on its first four drives of the second half. Winona State came into the contest ranked No. 18 in the nation. BSU falls to 0-2 this season and 0-3 since making the move to Division II against nationally-ranked opponents.

Bemidji State used a 28-point second quarter, the biggest single-quarter scoring output by the team in nearly two years, to blow open a 41-3 rout of Southwest Minnesota State. After a dismal first quarter which saw BSU hold the ball for just 2:39 and generate seven yards of offense on six snaps, the Beavers rebounded and put up four touchdowns in the second quarter to put the game away. Sophomore quarterback Nathan Sannes made his first career start and finished 7-of14 for 115 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Defensive end Adam Coughlin had a 20yard interception return touchdown to help stake the Beavers to a 14-0 lead. It was the first touchdown on an interception by a BSU defensive lineman since Oct. 20, 2001. Sannes was intercepted on the first BSU drive of the second half, leading to the only Mustang score of the game - a 31-yard field goal by Eric Oldenkamp. BSU has won six in a row from the Mustangs, and seven of the last eight. In the last three meetings in the series, BSU has outscored SMSU by a combined margin of 13017, including 78-3 the last two years alone. BSU still trails the all-time series, 15-20-1, but in games played in Bemidji leads 8-7-1.

Bemidji State trailed 21-0 with 7:39 to play in the first quarter, was out-gained 569-327, and turned the ball over four times. Northern State freshman quarterback Toby Korrodi shredded the BSU secondary, throwing for 421 yards and four touchdowns. And yet, Bemidji State won in the only category which ultimately matters, rallying for an improbable 48-42 victory. BSU’s first four drives ended puntinterception-fumble-punt and generated just 35 yards of offense. But Jason Smith came off the bench and completed 20 of 34 passes for 198 yards and four touchdowns, complementing a BSU defense which forced a season-high seven turnovers, to help lead the comeback. Northern State picked up two big-play touchdowns in the second quarter to pad its lead, but a late Eddie Acosta touchdown left BSU trailing by just seven points at the half. After BSU grabbed the lead, 48-42, with 10:38 to play in the fourth quarter, its defense took over. Northern State gained just three first downs the rest of the game, and BSU forced three turnovers to seal the victory. On Sept. 29, 2001, Northern State held a 23-6 lead over BSU at halftime, but the Beavers rallied with 27 unanswered points in the third and fourth quarters and won 47-46 in overtime.

Nov. 1, 2003 // Bemidji, MInn. L, 21-34 (5-4 / 3-3 NSIC)

Nov. 7, 2003 // Minneapolis, MInn. W, 45-21 (6-4 / 4-3 NSIC)

Nov. 15, 2003 // Bemidji, MInn. W, 47-35 (7-4 / 5-3 NSIC)

Minnesota Duluth’s Cash Langeness and Dave Rufledt combined for 267 yards rushing and four touchdowns, leading the Bulldogs to a 3421 victory over Bemidji State in the final NSIC football game between the two programs. Adam Noble hauled in his first of three touchdown receptions on the afternoon with 37 seconds to play in the first half to bring BSU within 17-7, but it was as close as the Beavers would get. After a 68-yard scoring run by UMD quarterback Cash Langeness, BSU attempted a rally. Jason Smith found Noble from nine and 28 yards out in the fourth quarter, but a 50-yard touchdown run by UMD’s Dave Rufledt was sandwiched in between Noble’s scores and BSU was unable to get within 13 points. Smith completed 15 of 35 passes for 181 yards and three touchdowns for the Beavers. Smith became just the second passer in BSU history with 40 career touchdown passes (42). Bulldog DE Russ Rabe finished with 10 tackles (four solo), two sacks, a fumble recovery, two passes defensed and a blocked punt. UMD held BSU to 283 yards of total offense, broke up 10 passes and blocked two punts. The loss was BSU’s fourth in a row to the Bulldogs, and leaves BSU at 2-23-1 against Duluth since 1977.

Bemidji State rolled up a season-high 496 yards of offense, but two interception returns for touchdown by its defense led to a 21-point second quarter and a 45-21 win over Wayne State in the 20th Annual NSIC Metrodome Classic. BSU set the tone for the game with a simply dominant first quarter of play, out-gaining the Wildcats 151-23 with nine first downs to Wayne State’s one. BSU assembled an 18-play, 93yard field goal drive which consumed 7:31 in the first quarter. Torry Joubert intercepted his team-leading fifth pass of the season and returned it 39 yards down the left sideline for a touchdown. Then five plays into Wayne State’s next drive, defensive end Adam Coughlin lept to break up a pass and was able to haul it in with one hand, returning it 22 yards for a touchdown. Coughlin’s score gave him two interception returns for touchdown this season, tying the school record set by Matt Wellumson in 1985. The 45 points is the second-most ever by BSU in a Metrodome game, topped only by a 47-7 win over Minn.-Crookston in 2001. The win improved Bemidji State to 6-4, guaranteeing the program a winning record for the school-record sixth consecutive season.

Bemidji State rallied from a first-half deficit of more than two touchdowns for the second time this season, overcoming a 35-20 halftime deficit in a 47-35 win over Minnesota-Crookston. After a back-and-forth first quarter which saw the teams knotted at 14 after the first 15 minutes, the Golden Eagles exploded with a 21-point second quarter and appeared to take control of the game. The visitors held a 35-20 lead going into halftime. The second half was a 180-degree turnaround for the Beavers. After giving up 195 yards of offense in the first half, the Beavers allowed only 125 in the second half - and just 21 in the pivotal third quarter as BSU assembled its rally. Eddie Acosta scored three touchdowns in the third quarter and four for the game, tying his career high and falling just one shy of the school record. His final performance gives him 5,766 career rushing yards, 10th on the NCAA Division II career rushing charts, and 64 rushing touchdowns. BSU has now won five consecutive meetings in the series and remains undefeated against the Golden Eagles in Bemidji (3-0). The win made BSU just the seventh team in school history to win seven or more games in a season.

ounded in 1932, the Northern Intercollegiate Conference (NIC) has enjoyed a varied existence in the upper Midwest region it calls home. In the spring of 1992 the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) was formed out of the merger of the NIC, the men’s conference, and the women’s Northern Sun Conference (NSC). The NSC had existed since 1979. The NSIC is currently made up of institutions from Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota. In the 1999-00 academic year, the NSIC became an expanded 10-team league from a previous seven-member conference. The conference will feature eight members in 2004-05. Since 1932, various institutions have competed in the NSIC. Bemidji State University, Minnesota State University Moorhead and Winona State University are charter members and have remained in the conference for its 71 years of existence. The University of Minnesota Duluth, which departed following the 2003-04 season was also an original member. Other current members joined in later years: Southwest Minnesota State University in 1969, Northern State University in 1978, Wayne State College (Nebraska) in 1998, while Concordia UniversitySt. Paul and the University of Minnesota, Crookston became members in 1999. The University of Minnesota, Morris became a league member in 1966, however, the Cougars opted for the NCAA Division III ranks beginning in 2003-04. Before the NSIC became eligible for National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) championship competition in 1995, its member institutions had an extremely rich tradition in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). The NIC’s and NSC’s tenure in the NAIA included several national championship teams and individuals as well as many national qualifiers. In 2003-04, Minnesota Duluth captured their final NSIC All-Sports Competition trophy. The Bulldogs took home top honors in eight of 14 NSIC sports. Minnesota Duluth swept men’s and women’s cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field championships as well as women’s soccer and women’s tennis. The Bulldog women also won the 2004 NSIC Women’s Basketball Tournament and advanced to the NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball Tournament. Winona State was second in the NSIC All-Sports Competition as the Warriors placed first or second in nine of the 14 conference sports in which they participate. Winona State won the men’s golf title and shared top honors in football. The Warriors finished second in baseball, softball, women’s golf, women’s soccer, women’s indoor and outdoor track and field and women’s tennis. On the gridiron, Winona State achieved two firsts hosting an NCAA playoff game and advancing to the second round of the playoffs. Northern State University finished third in the all-sport standings. The Wolves won the 2004 NSIC Men’s Basketball Tournament after finishing second in the regular season standings. Northern State also earned a berth to the NCAA Division II Basketball Tournament, its first since 1999. The Wolves were second in wrestling and finished third in men’s indoor track and field and women’s outdoor track and field. Continuing to make their mark in the league, Concordia University-St. Paul was fourth in the All-Sports standings. The Golden Bears won the league titles in volleyball and women’s basketball and shared the title in football while the softball team captured the tournament championship. Three Concordia-St. Paul teams advanced to their respective NCAA tournaments, volleyball, women’s basketball and softball. The volleyball team won the North Central Regional title and advanced all the way to the national championship match where they finished as runners-up. The football team played in its first-ever post season game as they represented the league in the Mineral Water Bowl. Other NSIC champions for 2003-04 include Southwest Minnesota State which captured its fourth-straight women’s golf championship and its first softball title since 1998. Bemidji State won the men’s basketball regular-season championship and participated in the NCAA tournament while Wayne State won the baseball tournament and advanced to the NCAA regional tournament. Minnesota State Moorhead won its second consecutive wrestling title. The league gears up for the next school year with the annual NSIC Summer Kickoff Event the last weekend in July. The event includes the NSIC Golf Tournament, Hall of Fame Banquet, officiating clinics and meetings involving the conference leadership. The 2004-05 academic year will once again feature numerous premier events. The NSIC schools will again compete at the NCC/NSIC Volleyball Challenge in early September, this year hosted by Northern State. For the first time, the NSIC will sponsor a volleyball championship tournament, hosted by the regular-season champion. The men’s and women’s basketball tournaments return to campus as the teams will vie throughout the regular season for the right to host the tournament. The Northern Sun Showcase television program (39 shows in last five years) returns to the airwaves again on Fox Sports Net. Also, the Northern Sun Spotlight radio show (over 100 shows the past five academic seasons) will air on several stations throughout the Midwest for 20 weeks during 2004-05 sports season. Over the years, the NSIC, comprised of schools of modest size, has provided extremely competitive intercollegiate athletic programs for its members. Although the programs are not designed to be equal to Division I athletics, many former NSIC athletes have distinguished themselves in national and international competition. Each member school emphasizes the educational, entertainment and unifying value of sports while pointing with pride to the many advantages to be gained by attending these colleges and universities. As some affiliated with the conference have coined, the NSIC quite possibly is, “the most competitive conference in NCAA Division II.”

The School Colors

In Feb., 1920, an assembly hour was set aside for the selection of school colors. After the balloting on colors had resulted in a deadlock, Cyrillus Freeman, a student from Minneapolis, rose and commanded attention. “As we sat here discussing this question,” she said, “I happened to glance out the window. The sight that met my eyes was fresh, green pines silhouetted against pure white snow. What could be more appropriate than green and white?” This idea was accepted unanimously.

The Naming of the Beavers

As President Deputy reviewed football practice one evening in May, 1932, he called the team into a huddle and raising his hands above their heads declared, “I christen this team the Beavers.” The name “Beavers” is symbolic of the silent, hard-working teams representing Bemidji State University.

Fight Song

“Go Bemidji Beavers Go you green and white Go Bemidji Beavers Fight with all your might! Rah! Rah! Rah! We are here to cheer you We are out to bring you fame So go Bemidji Beavers Fight and win this game!”

The BSU Logo

During the fall semester of 1998, campus-wide discussions were held on the need for new marks to represent the University as well as BSU athletics. The University marks at the time had been in place since 1974, with minor revisions in 1987, while no official athletic mascot, logo or image had been adopted for University use. A committee was formed and for the next academic year an audit and review were conducted on the school logo and athletics imagery to determine what images were being used to represent the institution. During the spring and summer of 1999, requests for proposals (RFP) were sought from outside firms to assist the university in this historic undertaking. The BSU coaching staffs took great interest in the efforts to produce the new Beaver logo. They desired an image that would represent pride and confidence while being gender-neutral and not appearing cartoonish in nature. The public relations firm of Russell & Herder of Brainerd was awarded the RFP for the logo project during the summer of 2000. For the remainder of 2000 and through early 2001, Russell & Herder helped oversee focus groups and surveys regarding the logo change. In Dec. 2000, preliminary logo designs were presented to the committee, and revisions were made until the time the new marks were formally adopted and officially unveiled March 28, 2001 at a ceremony on campus.

Homecoming

The first homecoming at Bemidji Teachers College was held Oct. 5, 1928. Until 1931 Homecoming was a biennial affair. In that year the demands of the alumni, eager for this season of reunion, changed it to an annual celebration with all the traditional dinners, teas, parades, dances, bonfires and football games. Recently, BSU has been celebrating victories in its annual Homecoming football game with a post-game celebration in the waters of Lake Bemidji which borders Chet Anderson Stadium on the east.

The War Years

BEAVER FOOTBALL 2004 OOTBALL TRADITIONS BSU History

Bemidji State holds a proud distinction of being the only Minnesota Teachers College to continue its football program through World War II, when other teams across the state temporarily suspended their teams due to a lack of available men on campus to fill out their rosters. “Jolly” Erickson, BSU’s head coach at the time, simply felt it foolish not to continue. BSU finished 4-0 with its depleted 1944 squad, one of just 15 undefeated teams in the nation that year. It remains the only unbeaten, untied team in BSU history. Following is a story from the Sep. 27, 1944 edition of The Northern Student which recounts BSU’s decision to carry on. BSTC Carries On in Football Only State Peds With Uninterrupted Program Bemidji State Teachers college is still having football! So far this northern Minnesota college, although severely handicapped by lack of men, has carried on every year in a wartime football program. It is the only one of the State Teachers colleges in Minnesota to do so. Coach “Jolly” Erickson says, “I think it is foolish to quit just because there aren’t 30 or 40 men around the campus. Ten boys out for the sport will get just as much out of it as a larger squad.” Coach Erickson went on to say that as long as the school has the equipment to fit out a team, every effort should be made to schedule games. Two home games are being planned this year instead of one. Eau Claire Teachers college of Wisconsin will send their team to Bemidji on October 13. The two teams should be of about the same ability as both have all-civilian teams. However, Eau Claire will have about twice as many men on the campus as Bemidji. “I would like to see the game with Eau Claire on October 13 be our annual homecoming game with all of the festivities included,” said “Jolly,” “and we hope that the fans will come out and help us carry out our plans.” Carl Knutson is the only returning major letter winner. He is a sophomore from Benson, Minnesota. LeRoy Voxland from Fosston won a minor letter last year. “Any able-bodied or slightly disabled man is welcome to join the squad.” So said Mr. Erickson. Other members of the team were recently announced by Jolly. They are Ralph Magnuson, Shevlin, Minn.; Louis Marchand and Robert Liapis, Bemidji, Minn.; Clarence Sohlin and Gerald Haring, St. Paul, Minn.; LaVerne Harvey, Hibbing, Minn.; and Donald Letendre, Cass Lake, Minn. Ralph Magnuson and LaVerne Harvey have both had experience as gridders before. Magnuson bucked the line for BSTC in 1938 and Harvey fought with Hibbing high school. Four or five men are expected to report in the near future. Magnuson is the only man on this season’s team with a wife and family, so here’s hoping the Eau Claire boys won’t be too rough with him.

As Bemidji State has developed into a year-in, year-out title contender in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference, the Beavers have also established one of the true home-field advantages in the region. Since 1996, when Jeff Tesch took the reigns of the BSU program, the Beavers have posted a 25-13 record at Chet Anderson Stadium (.658) which includes five-game home winning streaks from Oct. 23, 1999 to Sep. 15, 2001 and again from Sept. 28, 2003 to Aug. 28, 2003. BSU has won eight of its last 10 games played at Chet Anderson Stadium dating back to a Sept. 28, 2002 win over Wayne State (Neb.), with the only two losses in that span coming to then-12th ranked Chadron (Neb.) State and eventual NCAA Playoff participant Minn.-Duluth. Perhaps the most exciting game in BSU history came on the turf at Chet Anderson Stadium on Oct, 7, 2000 in a Homecoming contest against Southwest State. In that game, BSU prevailed 65-63 in a four-overtime marathon, with the Beavers pulling out the win on a successful two-point conversion at the end of the fourth extra period.

A

s the Bemidji State Teachers College continued to increase its enrollment from just 130 students when it opened its doors on June 23, 1919 to 160 in 1923, the need for more space and facilities became apparent. Mr. A.P White, a member of the Bemidji community and the Normal School Board, stated “now is the time for us to get our campus developed.” At that time the east side of campus along the lakeshore was still wilderness. Mr. White’s suggestion was carried out and the grounds for tennis courts and a football field were leveled and surfaced in 1923. The football field was located just east of the current student union along the shore of Lake Bemidji, just a few feet south from the current location of the stadium. The field ran north-south with sidelines running along the lakeshore. In 1926, R.E. Mendenhall, BSU’s first staff member to hold a PhD who taught history and physical education, organized the college’s first football team. The team played four games that fall against local high schools. The first game played on the Bemidji State field (often referred to as Diamond Point Field) was held Oct. 27, 1926 against Cass Lake High School. Bemidji was victorious, winning the battle 13-0. The team ended the first season in Bemidji State history with a record of 1-2-1. In August of 1935, with sponsorship by local organizations, citizens of Bemidji and the faculty, a $2,400 lighting system was installed in time for the upcoming season. Forty lights, mounted on eight 60-foot poles, illuminated the field brilliantly for the 1935 home opener Sept. 13 against Itasca Junior College. This would be the first night game to be played in Bemidji State history. The dedication for the new lighting system took place during halftime with a crowd of 1,500 in attendance. Bemidji State president M.W. Deputy, Mr. F.J McPartlin and Mr. H.Z. Mitchell spoke at the dedication ceremony and the game was preceded by a torchlight parade through the business section of the city. A practice field was built in 1938. The field was built extending from the already-existing field west to Birchmont Road. A concrete building was also constructed at the southwest corner of the playing field to house football equipment. In 1939, BSU received a $172,000 federal grant provided for sports fields, and all but a

small portion was used to upgrade BSU’s athletics facilities. The projects included two new football fields and relocation of the existing fields, as well as a track, softball and baseball diamonds, soccer field, tennis courts and a general playing court. Concrete bleachers for the football field were included in the improvement plans. One of the new fields would be used as a practice field for football, while the game field was built inside the round cinder track. The location of the new field constructed as part of that project is the exact location of today’s field. Throughout spring and summer of 1940, work continued on the new sports fields as well as the concrete bleachers. The 1940 football season opened on the newly constructed field as BSU played host to Concordia College on Sept. 27. But the $25,000 bleachers would not be complete until the 1941 season. In 1941 the bleachers, one on each side of the field, were completed. The newly constructed bleachers housed two rest rooms, two shower rooms, a refreshment stand, two first-aid rooms, two ticket booths and offices for the coaches. The inside passageway of the bleachers was home to a 160 foot long and 11 foot wide cinder track used by the track team for training during inclement weather. The bleachers were made of reinforced concrete and were 180 foot long and 40 feet wide. The seats consisted of 15 rows of redwood benches set atop steel straps and would seat an estimated 1,500 people. An enclosed sports booth, six feet wide and 14 feet long, occupied the position above and in the center of the north side bleachers. A glass front was installed to protect sports writers from inclement weather. With both bleachers completed the estimated capacity of the stadium was 3,500. The present-day stadium and field has undergone modifications throughout the years, but the main structures are the same today as 60 years ago. A new press box was added to the south side bleachers as well as additional seating, bringing the estimated capacity to 5,000. In 1989, a new scoreboard and new playing surface were installed. The facility was named the Chet Anderson Stadium on Oct. 5, 1996 honoring the winningest head coach in BSU history, Chester Anderson (1955-1965).

he 1948 Bemidji State College football homecoming committee decided that something symbolic was needed to add color to the festivities. Publicity stunts that year included dropping leaflets, which included game admissions among them, from an airplane. Homecoming committee chairman Ron Smith and others decided that an axe, then in possession of Smith, would serve as a suitable trophy to mark the hotly-contested annual Beaver-Dragon gridiron clash. The axe would be awarded to the university president representing the victor of the contest. Smith’s axe originated in the native village of Mount Hagon, New Guinea. The axe is hand made and was polished underwater by its maker. Two types of axe are produced by natives in the Mount Hagon area, one with a blade of black stone for work and one of gray stone for ceremonies. Smith procured the gray trophy axe through a series of shrewd trades with the natives. In 1948 the teams fought to the bitter end for possession of the weapon in the inaugural Battle for the Axe, with Moorhead State winning 13-6. Despite a loss in the first battle, Bemidji State dominated the early history of the trophy series posting a 10-3-1 record in its first 14 games. BSU won five consecutive meetings in the series from 1957-’61 and was unbeaten in seven consecutive meetings from 1955-’61. The tide turned in 1962, with the Dragons taking control of the series for the next few decades. In 21 games played from 1962 to 1982, the Beavers brought home the battle axe just twice - after a 28-12 win in Bemidji in 1969 and a 24-22 win in Moorhead in 1976. The Beavers broke through with two wins in four games from 1983-’86, but would then win just once - a 28-27 win in Bemidji in 1992 - in 11 games from 1987-’97. But the tide has once again turned in BSU’s favor, as the Beavers have captured five of the last six battles for the axe - including an active streak of four consecutive wins for the first time since BSU’s five-game winning streak from 1957-’61. From the Sep. 29, 1948 edition of The Northern Student: “Bemidji Presents Trophy to MSTC Today a Homecoming committee journeyed to Moorhead State Teachers college for a special pepe convocation. At this time invitations were extended to the faculty, student body, band and queen to come to BSTC where they will be given an active part in the Homecoming activities. At the convocation Ron Smith presented the New Guinea “Battle Ax” which is the new trophy between BSTC and MSTC.”

Bemidji, Minnesota

CITY ON THE MISSISSIPPI

The Bemidji area is home to a population of more that 30,000 and includes the Leech Lake, White Earth, and Red Lake Indian Reservations, and Lake Itasca, the headwaters to the Mississippi River. The City of Bemidji provides a focus for educational, business, and medical services. Recreational and cultural activities reflect a multicultural heritage that includes American Indian, European and Canadian influences. Bemidji is a “golden city” along the river’s bank, only miles from where the mighty Mississippi River begins its 2,552 mile journey to New Orleans and the Gulf of Mexico, a city at the center of the legends of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox. Bemidji’s natural beauty and bounty as a meeting or group tour destination is also enhanced with historic character. From world renown statues and architecture listed on the National Register of Historic Places, to ancient earth mounds and burial grounds, the past takes an interesting turn in Bemidji. Bemidji’s waterfront is home to the world-famous statues of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Nearby is Bemidji’s Tourist Information Center. In addition to Paul Bunyan memorabilia, The Bunyan House features the Fireplace of States built with stones from every state in the U.S. and Canadian provinces. To the north, you’ll encounter Library Park and the statue of Bemidji’s founding Chief Bemidji, as well as the Community Arts Center in the Carnegie Building, also on the National Register. At the south end of Lake Bemidji is Nymore Beach, site of the Crookston Lumber Co. The burning of the mill in 1924 marked the end of the county’s logging era. On the way into Bemidji, you may cross over the historic Mississippi River Bridge, built in 1916. This structure is listed on the National Register as one of the earliest examples of a steel-reinforced concrete bridge. At the southern end of Minnesota Avenue lies

the Great Northern Depot, completed in 1913. On the Historic Register, the Depot is the last early 20th century railroad building left in its original condition. The Commercial Building on Third Street, built in 1910, is cited in the Architecture of Minnesota Guide as a successful prairie-style solution for a single-story building. Other examples of historic architecture include the Beltrami County Courthouse built in 1902. Across the street you’ll find the 1917 Colonial Revival-style former Post Office. Perhaps Bemidji’s best-known historic district is the eight-block section of Lake Boulevard. Once known as Bemidji’s “Gold Coast,” among the many venerable homes to be viewed is the Dr. Johnson House built in 1910 with a showcase garden. The Bacon House was also built in 1910, later used for a Catholic convent. An unusual log structure, the Fisk House was reconstructed log-by-log at the present site. Judge Fisk enjoyed entertaining many distinguished guests, including writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. Further along you’ll find Warfield House, the 1912 home of the man who built Bemidji’s electric light plant. Two lady teachers resided at the 1930s Parker & Mangelsdorf House, also known for its large, informal gardens. Birchmont Avenue displays two art deco classics built in 1937, one with a semicircular glass projection, is located at Bemidji State University, the only lakeshore campus in the state with architecture dating back to 1919. Located about midway between Minneapolis/ St. Paul to the south and Winnipeg, Canada to the north, Bemidji has easy access by air, motor carrier, and automobile to metropolitan areas and international airports.
