2010 Jackrabbit Football



‘RING THE BELLS’ Ring the bells for South Dakota The Yellow and the Blue; Cheer the team from South Dakota With loyal hearts so true; Win the game for South Dakota The school that serves us well; We will fight for South Dakota So let's ring, ring, ring those bells.

‘THE YELLOW AND THE BLUE’ Oh S-D-S-U hurrah for the Yellow and Blue; Old S-D-S-U all honor and glory to you; For ever raise the song in praise both loud and long With loyal hearts so true (so true) Oh loyal hearts and true (and true, so true)

‘The BUM’ “The BUM” is in its 69th year as the official program for South Dakota State University home football and basketball games. It is edited and published by the Jackrabbit Sports Information Service, Jason Hove, director. “The BUM” is printed by the South Dakota State University Printing Lab. “The BUM” is published for each home football game, with the cost of this publication paid for with non-state funds.

STADIUM FACTS Coughlin-Alumni Stadium, named after Jackrabbit Sports Hall of Famer Charles Coughlin (SDSU, 1909) opened Sept. 22, 1962. There have been 32 crowds of 11,000 or more in the history of CoughlinAlumni Stadium, 19 of them for Hobo Day games. The attendance record is 16,345 for the 2007 season finale against North Dakota State game.

Welcome football fans! It is my pleasure to welcome you to Coughlin-Alumni Stadium for today’s Hall of Fame Game, when we take time to recognize the accomplishments of some of the best to ever wear the Yellow and Blue. Looking through the impressive list of accomplishments of this year’s Hall of Fame class, this weekend serves as a great reminder that our mission at South Dakota State University is to develop student-athletes into Lifelong Champions; creating an environment in which they attain a first-class education while competing on a national level. Last year, our student-athletes performed exceptionally well in the classroom. Collectively, our nearly 450 student-athletes combined to post a 3.123 grade-point average during the 2009-10 academic year. During the spring semester, 67 percent of our student-athletes turned in a GPA of 3.0 or higher, including 15 percent with perfect 4.0 GPAs. Our student-athletes are enrolled in more than 80 different majors, with biology the most popular course of study. Our successes have carried over to the field of competition this fall. Last Saturday, the Jackrabbit men’s cross country team repeated as Summit League champions and our women’s soccer team is hosting the Summit League Championship this weekend at Fishback Soccer Park. In addition, our volleyball team has played its way into contention for a berth in the upcoming postseason tournament. Winter sports also got into full swing this week with the men’s and women’s basketball teams, wrestling squad and men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams hosting events in what promises to be exciting seasons for all our teams. The accomplishments of our student-athletes would not be possible without strong support. On behalf of the entire Jackrabbit Athletics team, I want to thank you not only for your financial contributions, but the pride and passion you display whenever cheering on the young men and women who wear the Yellow and Blue. Go Jackrabbits!

2010 Jackrabbit Football

After having its playoff and Missouri Valley Football Conference title hopes all but dashed last week, the South Dakota State University football team will attempt to play the role of spoiler today as it hosts Missouri State in the annual Hall of Fame Game at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. Missouri State remains in the thick of the MVFC race with a 3-2 league record and stands 4-4 overall. The Bears won a 51-41 shootout over Southern Illinois last week in Springfield, Mo. MSU has a road date with league-leading Northern Iowa next week, followed by a Nov. 20 home matchup against North Dakota State. SDSU, meanwhile, had its three-game winning streak snapped in a 41-30 loss at Indiana State. The Jackrabbits are even in league play at 3-3, but are 3-5 overall. SDSU is trying to avoid its first losing season at the Football Championship Subdivision level; the Jackrabbits’ last finished below .500 in 2001, when they finished the year 5-6. THE SERIES: Today’s matchup marks only the third meeting between South Dakota State and Missouri State in football, a series that began when the Jackrabbits joined the Missouri Valley Football Conference at the start of the 2008 season. SDSU has claimed each of the first two meetings, posting a 43-13 victory in the inaugural game between the two squads on Nov. 1, 2008, at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. In that matchup, Kyle Minett recorded a career-high 205 yards rushing and JaRon Harris caught two third-quarter touchdowns from Ryan Berry en route to 10 catches for 169 yards. The Jackrabbits pulled out a road win last season against Missouri State, claiming a hard-fought 24-17 victory on Oct. 10, 2009, at Plaster Field in Springfield, Mo. General Parnell intercepted two passes, including one in the end zone in the final minute to seal the victory. SDSU quarterback Thomas O’Brien made his first career start, completing 14of-21 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns. Minett ran for 105 yards and a touchdown. HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE: The South Dakota State University football team has enjoyed a home-field advantage at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium since making the move to the Football Championship Subdivision level. Since joining the FCS ranks at the start of the 2004 season, the Jackrabbits have posted a 27-8 mark at CAS, including a 9-2 record in Missouri Valley Football Conference games. Lights were installed at CAS prior to the 2001 season and SDSU has turned in a 21-6 record in home night games. Overall, SDSU has compiled a 160-99 record in 49 seasons at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. ATTENDANCE STREAK: South Dakota State has enjoyed playing in front of capacity crowds at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium in recent years. Since moving to the Football Championship Subdivision in 2004, 21 of 35 home games have drawn a crowd of at least 10,000, including each of the last eight. A Jackrabbit-record 16,345 fans attended the SDSUNorth Dakota State matchup on Nov. 17, 2007, a game the Jackrabbits won to claim the Great West Football Conference title.

ZACHARIA BOWERS was credited with 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in the Jackrabbits’ last outing, a 41-30 defeat at the hands of Indiana State. Bowers has started the last four games at defensive end for SDSU. During the 2009 season, SDSU ranked 17th among FCS programs with an average home attendance of 13,265 fans per home game. Overall, home attendance since the start of the 2004 season has been 358,080 — an average of 10,231 fans per game. CAPTAINS: Leading the Jackrabbit football team on the field and in the locker room are four senior captains: • Cole Brodie, defensive back, Dacula, Ga.; • Conrad Kjerstad, defensive back, Wall; • Ryan McKnight, offensive lineman, Sioux Falls; • Kyle Minett, running back, Ruthton, Minn. MINETT FOR 100: South Dakota State running back Kyle Minett will attempt to extend his streak of 100-yard rushing games to eight in today’s contest. Since taking over starting running back duties at the beginning of his sophomore season, Minett has topped the 100-yard mark in 20 of the Jackrabbits’ 32 games. He also surpassed the century mark once during his freshman season in 2007. A senior from Ruthton, Minn., Minett crossed the 4,000-yard plateau for his career last week at Indiana State and enters today’s game with 4,091 career yards and 1,022 rushing yards this season. He is the only player in SDSU history to rush for 1,000 yards in three consecutive seasons, after recording 1,289 yards in 2008 and 1,304 yards in 2009. A candidate for the Walter Payton Award as the top offensive player in the Football Championship Subdivision, Minett has scored at least one touchdown in each of the past four games to up his career total to 44 rushing touchdows — second among current FCS players. He tied a career high with three touchdowns in the Oct. 9 home victory over Western Illinois and matched that output last week at Indiana State. The last Jackrabbit running back to post eight consecutive 100-yard games was Josh Ranek, whose streak covered the last two games of the 1998 season and first six of the 1999 campaign. NEXT WEEK: The Jackrabbits close out Missouri Valley Football Conference action next week, traveling to North Dakota State for the annual battle for the Dakota Marker. Kickoff is set for 3:05 p.m. Central Time at the Fargodome. The game is scheduled to be televised as part of the MVFC’s Game of the Week. Check for television listings.

2010 Jackrabbit Football



ohn Stiegelmeier has built the South Dakota State University football team into a consistent winner and a program on the rise in the ranks of the Division I Football Championship Subdivision.

Overall, Coach Stig has led the Jackrabbits to an 86-65 record (.570 winning percentage). SDSU has posted eight consecutive winning seasons, including the school’s first six campaigns at the FCS (formerly Division I-AA) level. The Jackrabbits have had a winning record in 11 of Stiegelmeier’s 13 years as head coach, including six with seven or more wins. The 2009 season proved to be a memorable one as Stiegelmeier led the Jackrabbits to their first FCS playoff appearance and the program’s first postseason appearance in 30 years. The Jackrabbits finished as runner-up in the Missouri Valley Football Conference with a 7-1 record and finished the season 8-4 overall. Nationally ranked for the entire season, including appearing in the top 10 for two weeks, the Jacks finished the 2009 campaign ranked 11th in both the FCS Coaches' and Sports Network media polls. In 2008, the Jackrabbits entered another new era in their Division I pursuits as they joined the nine-team Missouri Valley Football Conference. With the transition from Division II completed, SDSU fell just short of a playoff berth in its first season of eligibility, ending the year with a 7-5 overall record and 6-2 mark in the MVFC. Of SDSU’s five losses, four came against ranked FCS opponents, including conference co-champions Northern Iowa and Southern Illinois. The team’s other loss was at the hands of Football Bowl Subdivision opponent Iowa State in the season opener. The Jackrabbits cracked the FCS national polls for the first time in late October 2006, after posting back-to-back come-from-behind victories over Cal Poly and UC Davis. After climbing as high as No. 19 on the final week of the regular season, the Jackrabbits finished the 2006 season ranked 22nd by the Sports Network. SDSU began the 2007 season in a preseason national poll for the first time, checking in at No. 20 in the Sports Network poll. The Jackrabbits dropped out of the rankings after a season-opening loss and didn’t return to the top 25 until the final poll of the season with a 19th-place showing. The Jackrabbits continued their ascension at the FCS level during the 2008 season, reaching the 12th spot in the Sports Network poll after opening league play with home victories over No. 14 Youngstown State and No. 15 Western Illinois in back-to-back weeks. In all, SDSU was ranked seven weeks. During the 2007 season, SDSU claimed its first conference title since 1963 by winning the Great West Football Conference championship. After starting 0-3 for the second consecutive season, SDSU reeled off seven wins in its final eight games, including a 29-24 victory over previously undefeated North Dakota State the final week of the season, to claim the GWFC title with a 7-4 overall record and 4-0 mark in league play. In leading SDSU to the GWFC title, Stiegelmeier was named conference coach of the year and was honored by the American Football Coaches Association as the Division I Football Championship Subdivision Region 5 Coach of the Year. In addition, he was named as one of five finalists in the FCS for the 2007 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award. After posting back-to-back 6-5 seasons in 2004 and 2005, the Jackrabbits rose another notch in 2006 as they compiled a 7-4 overall record, finishing the season ranked 21st in the final FCS poll conducted by The Sports Network and 22nd in the College Sporting News coaches’ poll. Following an 0-3 start, the Jackrabbits rebounded by winning seven consecutive games for the first time since 1963. Three of the victories came in the closing minutes against nationally ranked teams, setting up a showdown with North Dakota State on the final week of the season for both the Dakota Marker and Great West Football Conference title. Although SDSU fell short in the championship game, the Jackrabbits finished with their most victories since 2003 and their best mark in the three-year history of the GWFC at 3-1. Stiegelmeier, 53, is the 20th head coach for the Jackrabbits. His tenure of 13 years as head coach is the second-longest head coaching stint in school history. The Selby, S.D., native first became acquainted with the Jackrabbit football program as a student assistant under John Gregory during SDSU’s only other NCAA playoff season in 1979. With the Jackrabbits’ victory at McNeese State (La.) on Sept. 30, 2006, Stiegelmeier passed Gregory (55-50-3 from 1972-81) for sole possession of second place on the SDSU career wins list. After graduating from SDSU with degrees in mathematics and physical education, Stiegelmeier enrolled in graduate school at the University of Northern Iowa, where he served on the coaching staff of a Panther squad which posted a 7-4 mark in 1981. Stiegelmeier coached at Eau Claire (Wis.) North High School from 198184, then returned to his home state as defensive coordinator, secondary coach and recruiting coordinator at Northern State University from 1984-87. Northern was 8-3 in his last season with the Wolves and finished fourth in the nation in total defense. Stiegelmeier returned to his alma mater in July 1988, joining Wayne Haensel’s Jackrabbit coaching staff as secondary coach and recruiting coordinator. After Haensel stepped down following the 1990 season, Stiegelmeier was elevated to defensive coordinator by new head coach Mike Daly. In six seasons as defensive coordinator, Stiegelmeier helped guide the Jackrabbits to a 41-23 record, turning in a winning record in all six seasons, including five seven-win seasons. That track record of success helped Stiegelmeier secure his first head coaching position in December 1996, when he was named Daly’s successor.

2010 Jackrabbit Football



Assistant Head Coach • Offensive Coordinator • Offensive Line


uke Meadows continues his long association with South Dakota State University football as he enters his ninth season as offensive line coach. The longest-tenured assistant on John Stiegelemeier’s coaching staff, Meadows is in his fifth year with the role of assistant head coach and also holds the title of offensive coordinator. A Hot Springs native, Meadows began his coaching career as an undergraduate student at SDSU. After earning a bachelor’s degree in 1999, he continued on as a graduate assistant with the Jackrabbits during the 1999 and 2000 seasons, coaching the running backs, including Jackrabbit career rushing leader and AllAmerican Josh Ranek. He then spent a season as offensive line coach at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, before returning to SDSU in July 2002. In 2005, Meadows coached an offensive line that helped pave the way for the leading rushing attack in the Great West Football Conference, averaging 227.4 yards per game. During Meadows’ time on staff, the Jackrabbits have posted four of the top 10 single-season rushing totals in school history and five of the top 10 single-game rushing performances. In addition, SDSU has recorded four of the top-10 scoring averages in the program’s history, including 35.6 points per game in 2008. The 2008 squad also set an SDSU single-season record with 427 points in 12 games, scoring 40 or more points in a game six times. With Meadows on the coaching staff, SDSU has established 11 team single-game and single-season offensive records, including rolling up 689 yards of total offense in the 2005 Hobo Day victory over Missouri-Rolla. Jackrabbit players he has coached also have established 30 new individual school records during his tenure. Under his guidance, Meadows has coached offensive linemen who have combined for six first-team all-conference selections and second-team accolades 10 times, including 2009 honorees Ryan McKnight (first team) and Casey Knips (second team). Three of his former pupils — Mitch Erickson (Seattle Seahawks), Casey Bender (Cleveland Browns) and Casey Knips (Arizona Cardinals) — were in NFL training camps this summer. As a unit, the Jackrabbit offensive line yielded only 12 sacks for the entire season en route to winning the 2007 Great West Football Conference championship. Meadows also played a key role in SDSU’s successful transition to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision by serving as the program’s recruiting coordinator for much of his tenure.


Co-Defensive Coordinator • Defensive Line Coach • Recruiting Coordinator


lint Brown enters his second season as an assistant coach with the South Dakota State University football program, filling the roles of co-defensive coordinator, defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator. In 2009 with the Jackrabbits, Brown helped direct a defense that played a prominent role in SDSU’s berth in the Football Championship Subdivison playoffs. SDSU ranked among the national leaders in scoring defense for much of the season, before finishing the year ranked 16th after allowing an average of 17.4 points per game. Four times the Jackrabbits held an opponent without an offensive touchdown. Additionally, SDSU posted top-20 national rankings in three other defensive categories: pass efficiency defense (fourth, 99.55); rushing defense (104.33 yards per game) and total defense (17th, 289.5 yards per game). Brown also served as position coach for All-America defensive end Danny Batten, who was honored as Co-Missouri Valley Football Conference Defensive Player of the Year and was later selected in the sixth round of the NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. Brown has coached at the collegiate level for 16 years. Most recently, Brown served as the defensive coordinator, recruiting coordinator and assistant head coach at Wayne State College (Neb.) for four seasons. During his tenure at Wayne, the Wildcats improved from four wins the first season to a 9-3 record and NCAA Division II playoff berth in 2008. The 2007 squad led the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference in sacks and ranked second in total defense. A native of Arlington, Neb., Brown earned two varsity letters at Nebraska and was a member of the Cornhuskers’ 1994 national championship team. While completing his bachelor’s degrees in secondary education biology and history, Brown began his collegiate coaching career as a student assistant for the Cornhuskers during the spring of 1995. He moved on later that year to coach the outside linebackers at Nebraska Wesleyan, then spent the 1996 season as a graduate assistant at Nebraska-Omaha. Brown spent two more seasons as a graduate assistant at New Mexico State, working with the Sam linebackers in 1997 and the secondary in 1998.

Co-Defensive Coordinator • Secondary


ay Bubak (last name is pronounced BOO-bock), begins his sixth season on the Jackrabbit coaching staff as co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach at South Dakota State University.

During the 2009 season, Bubak helped mentor a defense that ranked among the national leaders in scoring defense for much of the year, before finishing the campaign ranked 16th after allowing an average of 17.4 points per game — its best showing in six seasons at the Division I Football Championship Subdivision level. Four times the Jackrabbits held an opponent without an offensive touchdown. Additionally, SDSU posted top-20 national rankings in three other categories: pass efficiency defense (fourth, 99.55); rushing defense (14th, 104.33 yards per game) and total defense (17th, 289.5 yards per game). During the Jackrabbits’ run to the Great West Football Conference title in 2007, SDSU led the league in scoring defense (22.2) despite playing four teams that ranked in the top 15 for scoring in FCS. The Jackrabbits also led the GWFC in turnover margin (plus-14), creating a league-best 31 takeaways. In addition, SDSU ranked second in pass defense (202.7 yards per game) and sacks (26). Five defensive players earned first-team allGWFC recognition, with three others honored on the second team. Both of SDSU’s starting cornerbacks, Brock Gentile and Tyler Koch, were honored on the all-GWFC First Team after combining for 10 interceptions. Koch also was named to All-America squads by The Associated Press and Sports Network after tallying a league-best seven interceptions, three of which he returned for scores. SDSU also played for the Great West title in 2006 as the Jackrabbit defense allowed only 21.4 points per game. A 1993 graduate of Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln, Neb., Bubak previously spent six seasons at Missouri Western State College in St. Joseph, Mo. After joining the Griffons’ coaching staff as secondary coach in 1999, Bubak was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2000, a position he filled for five seasons. While at Missouri Western, he helped lead the Griffons to a share of their first-ever Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association title in football during the 2003 season, finishing the season 9-3 overall and 7-2 in league play. The 2003 squad led the league with 30 turnovers forced and 33 sacks, paced by All-America free safety Pierre Thomas, who led all divisions of the NCAA with 14 interceptions and 362 interception return yards. As a player, Bubak was a four-year letterman and team defensive most valuable player at safety for Nebraska Wesleyan University, in Lincoln, Neb, from 1989-92. He received all-conference and CoSIDA Academic All-America recognition, while also serving as team captain. NWU won two league championships and made a pair of NAIA playoff appearances. Bubak began his coaching career in 1993 at Nebraska Wesleyan as an assistant in charge of the secondary. After a two-year stint as the defensive backfield and quarterbacks coach at Chase County High School in his native Imperial, Neb., he moved on to the University of South Dakota, where he served two years as a graduate assistant working with the linebackers and one year as a full-time assistant coach, working with the defensive backs and special teams. Two players he tutored, Matt Chatham and Josh Stamer, went on to play in the NFL.

JOSH DAVIS Wide Receivers


osh Davis will face the challenge of molding a young group of wide receivers as he begins his second full season as a member of the South Dakota State University football coaching staff.

During the Jackrabbits’ 2009 playoff-qualifying season, Davis mentored a veteran group of receivers led by two-time second-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference selection Glen Fox. The senior trio of Fox, Mike Steffen and Saunders Montague combined to account for 142 receptions, 1,875 yards and 10 touchdowns. A native of Omaha, Neb., Davis previously served as a graduate assistant on John Stiegelmeier’s coaching staff during the 2007 season and also served as a student intern in 2006 while completing his bachelor’s degree in health, physical education and recreation. He further gained coaching experience at the collegiate level by mentoring the wide receivers at Council Bluffs-based Iowa Western Community College in the spring of 2009. A record-setting wide receiver at SDSU from 2002-05, Davis still holds the Jackrabbit career mark of 225 receptions, while his 3,192 receiving yards rank second on the all-time SDSU charts. In addition, Davis holds the SDSU single-game record with 16 receptions, a feat he accomplished against Western Washington in 2002. He recorded at least 40 receptions in all four seasons and led the team in catches three times, including 70 in 2002, a figure which ranks in a tie for second place on the Jackrabbit single-season charts. Davis was a first-team all-North Central Conference selection in 2003 and was a second-team all-Great West Football Conference honoree in 2005, the Jackrabbits’ second season competing in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision. In addition to his coaching duties, Davis helps coordinate the team’s travel and camps.

Eidsness left SDSU after the 2003 season to become head coach at Southwest Minnesota State. He compiled a 26-40 career record during his tenure on the Mustang sideline, which included a 6-5 season in 2008 — only the eighth winning season in school history. His 26 victories as head coach rank second in program history. While at the helm of the Mustang program, Eidsness coached 61 all-conference players, including 10 who earned all-region honors. SMSU increased its scoring average each of his last four seasons, from 20.1 points per game in 2006 to 36.0 points in 2009, tying a school record with eight games of 30plus points. The 2009 squad also averaged 396.2 yards of total offense per game.

Junior Derek Domino was honored as a first-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference selection, while seniors Chris Johnson and Jimmy Rogers received honorable mention accolades. All three ranked among the team’s top six tacklers, combining for 241 tackles and 17 tackles for loss. The linebackers played a prominent role on a defensive unit that ranked among the national leaders in scoring defense for much of the year, before finishing the campaign ranked 16th after allowing an average of 17.4 points per game — its best showing in six seasons at the Division I Football Championship Subdivision level. Four times the Jackrabbits held an opponent without an offensive touchdown. Additionally, SDSU posted top-20 national rankings in three other defensive categories: pass efficiency defense (fourth, 99.55); rushing defense (104.33 yards per game) and total defense (17th, 289.5 yards per game).

He was elevated to the head coaching position after serving as the team’s defensive coordinator in 2001, during which his unit ranked 10th in the NAIA ranks for pass defense and 18th in total defense. After serving as an assistant high school coach for one season, Mennenga began his collegiate coaching career in 1994 as a graduate assistant at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Mo. He was later hired as a full-time assistant, coaching the secondary during the 1995 and 1996 seasons. In 1997, Mennenga moved up to the Division I-AA (now FCS) level, coaching the outside linebackers for a Western Kentucky team that reached the quarterfinals of the playoffs. The next year, Mennenga became a coordinator for the first time as he was hired as defensive coordinator at Hutchinson Community College (Kan.), where he stayed for three seasons. As a player, Mennenga lettered as a defensive back at Missouri in 1992. A recipient of the Senior Scholastic Award, he earned a bachelor of science degree in educational studies with an emphasis in exercise science in 1993.

2010 Jackrabbit Football

COUGHLIN-ALUMNI STADIUM Coughlin-Alumni Stadium is in its 49th season as home of Jackrabbit football. In the quest to maintain it as one of the top outdoor football facilities in the Upper Midwest, Coughlin-Alumni Stadium has undergone major changes during the past decade. A new scoreboard was installed in the south end zone prior to the 2005 season. The scoreboard, which was manufactured by Brookings-based Daktronics, measures approximately 121 feet wide by 56 feet high and features a large full-color ProStar® video replay screen in the center with additional statistical and advertising panels. The football scoreboard was part of a $3 million upgrade to scoreboard display systems and signage at SDSU athletic facilities. Also in the past decade at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium, lights were added, parking lots were paved, new restrooms were constructed, a new ticket booth added, and an organized tailgating area known as “The Backyard” was cleared directly north of the stadium. CAS will see other changes this fall as the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center, located in the north end zone, will house the Jackrabbit football team for the first time. With the addition of the lights during the summer of 2000, CAS also became the home of the Brookings High School Bobcats. SDSU played its first game under the lights at CAS on Sept. 1, 2001, defeating Ferris State (Mich.), 34-24. The Jackrabbits have gone on to compile a 20-6 record in night games at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. The natural-grass stadium opened Sept. 22, 1962, when the Jacks lost a 9-7 decision to Arkansas State. During its 49 years of operation, there have been 259 games against 59 different opponents at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium, with SDSU holding a 160-99 record (.618 winning percentage) on its home field. Since moving to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision in 2004, the Jackrabbits have posted a 25-8 mark at CAS. That includes a 9-2 record at home against Missouri Valley Football Conference opponents. The largest crowd ever to see a football game of any kind in South Dakota came through the turnstiles on Nov. 17, 2007, when 16,345 fans watched the Jackrabbits defeat North Dakota State, 29-24, for the Great West Football Conference title. NDSU entered the game undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the FCS Coaches Poll. SDSU also set a single-season attendance record during the 2007 campaign as an average of 11,218 fans attended each of the Jackrabbits’ six home games. Four of the games drew crowds better than 10,000 and three ranked among the 10 largest crowds in stadium history. The Jackrabbits have performed well in front of large crowds, winning eight of the 10 most-attended games. The previous single-game attendance record was set on Hobo Day, Oct. 19, 1985, when 16,193 fans saw SDSU defeat the University of South Dakota 24-12. USD also was undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the nation at the time. The stadium project was started after Charles Coughlin, a 1909 graduate and former student-athlete, donated $50,000 towards the building of a new stadium to replace State Field. The remaining $250,000 of the original $300,000 cost was raised from alumni, students and friends of SDSU.

DYKHOUSE STUDENT-ATHLETE CENTER The newest athletic facility at South Dakota State University, the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center opened in early 2010. The Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center will help Jackrabbit Athletics take another step forward in its mission to produce student-athletes as Lifelong Champions. The 30,000-square-foot facility: • Houses an academic center for all SDSU student-athletes. • Serves as the home of Jackrabbit football with coaches offices, locker room, meeting rooms, a strength and conditioning center and athletic training facilities. • Provides a dedicated area to showcase the program to recruits and donors. The Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center is equipped with seven meeting rooms for the Jackrabbit football team to accommodate offense, defense, special teams,as well as specified position space as necessary. The home of Jackrabbit football players consists of a state-ofthe-art locker room, which is second to none in the region. It embodies everything that Jackrabbit Athletics stands for: Honor, Tradition and Excellence. Players will have the opportunity to condition and train in the 4,100-square-foot Strength & Conditioning Center, filled with the latest strength training and fitness equipment. The Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center was made possible through leadership gifts from the Dana and La Dawn Dykhouse family and South Dakota businessman and philanthropist T. Denny Sanford. Dana Dykhouse, president and Chief Executive Officer of First Premier Bank in Sioux Falls, is a 1979 graduate of SDSU. He lettered three years for the Jackrabbit football team, earning honorable mention all-North Central Conference honors as a defensive tackle in 1978. La Dawn Dykhouse also graduated in 1979 from SDSU, where she was a Pride of the Dakotas Dakota Deb Member. They are the parents of two children: Dan (Kristina), a 2007 alumnus and football letterwinner from 2004-06; and Alana, who graduated from Black Hills State University in the spring of 2010 after lettering four times in women’s basketball. The Chicoine Champions Room is named in recognition of the gift provided by the Jeff and Chris Chicoine family of Lake Forest, Ill. Jeff Chicoine is a 1968 agricultural economics graduate and football letterwinner. The Chicoine Champions Room will serve as a hub for football recruiting and will be transformed to a donor hospitality suite on gamedays. To date, the Dana and La Dawn Dykhouse family, T. Denny Sanford and nearly 50 other donors have given more than $6 million in support of the project. Many have accelerated their gifts to the University, which has increased the amount of the donations through interest earned.

ACADEMIC SUCCESS The South Dakota State University football team continued to gain conference and national recognition for its academic pursuits during the 2009 season. Headlining the individual award winners were juniors Kyle Minett and Conrad Kjerstad, who received recognition on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Team within the University Division. A running back from Ruthton, Minn., Minett was honored on the first team for the second consecutive year with a 3.60 grade-point average while majoring in economics. Kjerstad, a safety from Wall, earned secondteam honors with a 3.93 GPA in agricultural business. He later was named to the 12th annual Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association Academic All-Star Team. Minett and Kjerstad were joined on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Team by senior offensive lineman Casey Knips and junior punter Dean Priddy. Knips, a native of Adrian, Minn., compiled a 3.69 GPA while majoring in construction management. He also was a semifinalist for the 2009 William V. Campbell Trophy, which is awarded to the college football’s top scholar-athlete. A native of Eden Prairie, Minn., Priddy is cur-

rently pursuing a master’s degree in mathematics after compiling a 3.71 GPA as an undergraduate. After leading the Missouri Valley Football Conference in team grade-point average during the 2008 season, the Jackrabbits posted a league-best 10 selection, including three firstteam honorees, on the 2009 MVFC All-Academic Team, which was announced in December. It marked the fifth consecutive season SDSU led its football conference in all-academic picks. Headlining the list of Jackrabbit honorees were running backs and repeat first-team selections Minett and Tyler Duffy. A junior running back and Brookings native, Duffy earned a spot on the first team with a perfect 4.0 grade-point average while majoring in electrical engineering. Kjerstad was the other first-team selection. SDSU’s lone representative on the second team was senior linebacker Chris Johnson, a Council Bluffs, Iowa, native who has compiled a 3.49 GPA in economics. Six other Jackrabbit players received honorable mention honors: seniors Knips and Jimmy Rogers, juniors Derek Domino, Matt Hylland and Priddy, and sophomore Brad Iverson. SDSU, coached by John Stiegelmeier, led the

Great West Football Conference in the number of academic all-conference selections from 2005 through 2007. Nominees to the 2009 Missouri Valley Football Conference All-Academic team must have been starters or key reserves with a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade-point average. Studentathletes must have reached sophomore academic and athletic standing at their institutions and must have completed at least one full academic year at their institution. League sports information directors voted on the team by designating 11 players for first-team honors and 11 players for second-team recognition. The league also recognized 52 Jackrabbit players following the conclusion of the 2009-10 academic year on the MVFC Honor Roll for posting a GPA of 3.0 or better while being enrolled in at least 12 hours during the fall. Of those 52 players, 25 qualified for the Commissioner’s Academic Excellence Award, which requires a minimum 3.2 GPA for each of the previous two semesters and at least a sophomore in academic standing. In addition, Duffy, Knips and Priddy received the Presidents Council Academic Award, which requires a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA and within 18 hours of graduation.

It’s through cooperation and teamwork that we connect our small town strengths and resources to the global market. It’s also why we’re committed to recruiting the brightest leaders of tomorrow. To learn more, visit © 2009 CHS Inc.

COACH STIG’S COMMENTS “Corey Jeske’s journey to the position of safety for the Jacks is unique. His playing style and spirit are also unique. Corey was recruited as a quarterback. We had a need at defensive back and asked Corey to switch positions. He made the switch with the team in mind and has become an excellent safety for our defense. His commitment to learn the new position was full speed ahead. He also plays the game full speed ahead. Corey looks forward to contact with whoever is in his path. Through much hard work and dedication, Corey Jeske has become a true Difference Maker on our defense.” The Bum 19

2010 Jackrabbit Football



FEATURED MOMENT November 1, 1880: National Football Foundation tri-founder Grantland Rice was born in Murfreesboro, Tenn. Considered one of the greatest American writers and poets of the first half of the 20th century, Rice penned arguably the most famous line in college football history when he wrote, "Outlined against a blue, gray October sky the Four Horsemen rode again," dubbing the famed Four Horsemen of Notre Dame in 1924. Rice combined with General Douglas MacArthur and Army coach Earl "Red" Blaik to create the National Football Foundation in 1947. OTHER NOTABLE DATES November 2, 1968: Before he became the NFF's Chairman, College Football Hall of Famer Archie Manning pulled out a last-minute 27-24 win over No. 14 LSU in Baton Rouge. Trailing 17-3 in the second quarter, Manning hit Floyd Franks for a 66yard touchdown strike to get the Rebels back in the game. Ole Miss would eventually take a 2017 fourth-quarter lead, but the Bayou Bengals struck back with an 11-yard scoring run by Kenny Newfield to put LSU on top 24-20. The Rebels responded with Manning, who threw for 344 yards and two touchdowns on the day, hitting four straight passes and scoring the gamewinner on the ground.

November 3, 1962: College Football Hall of Fame head coach John McKay’s No. 3 USC Trojans handed No. 9 Washington its first loss of the season, 14-0, in Los Angeles. Quarterback Pete Beathard threw and ran for a score to carry the Trojans’ offense while the USC defense denied the Huskies on three separate red zone trips. The win would prove to be a vital one as USC would eventually win its first of four national titles under McKay and first since 1939. November 4, 2000: No. 23 Northwestern upset No. 12 Michigan in a 54-51 shootout in Evanston, Ill. Northwestern tailback Damien Anderson, who carried for 268 yards and two scores, dropped a fourth down pass in the end zone late in the game that seemingly sealed the Wildcats’ fate. On the ensuing Michigan possession, cornerback Sean Wieber forced Michigan tailback Anthony Thomas to fumble, which was recovered by cornerback Raheem Covington. The turnover set up an 11-yard touchdown pass from Zak Kustok to wide receiver Sam Simmons with 20 seconds to play to clinch the victory.

Cowboys, however, built a 24-7 early second half lead after scoring on their first two possessions after halftime. The Rams stole momentum on a 35-yard fake punt pass and never gave it back, scoring on four consecutive possessions to pull away for a 35-24 victory. A loss by Utah one week later gave Colorado State sole possession of first place in the conference, and the Rams would go on to win their first league title later that season. November 6, 1971: Colgate and Bucknell combined for the most single-game rushes in college football history. Colgate rushed 82 times while Bucknell racked up 59 carries. The teams combined for 440 total rushing yards. Colgate won the game 47-24 in Hamilton, N.Y. November 7, 1925: Andy “Swede” Oberlander threw a thenNCAA-record six touchdown passes in a game as Dartmouth stopped Cornell, 62-13, in Hanover, N.H. The Big Green downed College Football Hall of Famer Amos Alonzo Stagg’s Chicago Maroons 33-7 one week later in Chicago to finish the season at 8-0.

November 5, 1994: No. 11 Colorado State had a chance to move into first place in the WAC championship race with a win over Wyoming in Fort Collins. The

Four former standout South Dakota State University student-athletes were inducted into the Jackrabbit Sports Hall of Fame during oncampus ceremonies today, and will be recognized at halftime. The 2010 Hall of Fame class includes: • Kristin (Asp) Schoffman, women’s cross country and track and field; • Steve Brown, men’s basketball and baseball; • Jennifer (Johnson) Kornbaum, women’s basketball and volleyball; and • Mark Tetzlaff, men’s basketball KRISTIN (ASP) SCHOFFMAN Schoffman earned All-America honors a combined 10 times between cross country and track and field, including winning an NCAA Division individual national title in the 3,000-meter run at the 1984 outdoor nationals. A native of Lamberton, Minn., Schoffman also earned All-America Schoffman honors three times in the 5,000 meters outdoors, placing third in 1982, fourth in 1983 and second in 1984, while adding a fifth-place finish in the 3,000-meter run at the 1985 Divison II Indoor Track and Field Championships. The North Central Conference’s alltime record holder in the indoor 3,000-meter run (9:42.46), Schoffman won seven conference track titles in the distance events, including three times in the 3,000 meters outdoors (1982, 1983, 1984), and was a key member of the Jackrabbits’ NCC indoor track and field championship teams in 1982 and 1983.

for a fourth straight title came up just short as she finished second in the 1984 championships in Vermillion. She went on to claim All-America honors four times in cross country, starting with a third-place individual finish as a freshman in 1981. Schoffman added a sixth-place finish in 1983, along with eighth-place efforts in 1982 and 1984. As a team, SDSU claimed the NCAA Division II championship in 1981 and finished as runner-up a year later. The Jackrabbits also claimed NCC team titles in 1981, 1982 and 1984 A 1986 graduate of SDSU with a degree in nutrition and food science, Schoffman worked as a registered dietician before beginning a career in health care administration with an emphasis in marketing and public relations. She and her husband, James, and daughter, Bridget, currently live in Eagan, Minn., where they operate a real estate and property management business. STEVE BROWN Brown, a 1978 graduate of SDSU, earned allNorth Central Conference honors twice in both basketball and baseball for the Jackrabbits. A Bryant native, Brown led the Jackrabbit men’s basketball team in scoring his junior and senior seasons, averaging a North Central Conference-best 22.0 points per league game during his junior season and a team-best 19.7 points per game as a senior during the 1977-78 campaign. The most valuable player of the 1977 NCC Holiday Tournament, Brown finished his career second on the SDSU career scoring charts with 1,534 points - a total that still ranks fourth. For his career, Brown shot 50.7 percent (643for-1,269) from the field and 84.6 percent (248of-293) at the free throw line. On the diamond, Brown earned all-NCC

COACH STIG’S COMMENTS “Alex Beyer is one of the true unsung heroes of our team. He plays the tight end position, but hardly ever has the opportunity to catch a pass. Instead of catching balls, you will see him blocking linebackers and defensive ends. The reality is, that in most of our running plays, Alex has a very important role at the point of attack. He makes the block. Alex’s reception total coming ino this season was low. Most players would be disappointed. Alex Beyer thinks Team First.

2010 Jackrabbit Football


Head Coach Terry Allen Terry Allen is in his fifth season at the helm of the Missouri State football program and is in search of leading the Bears to a third winning season under his guidance. Allen has compiled a 22-30 record at Missouri State and his overall collegiate coaching record stands at 117-89 in 17 seasons. Now in his second stint in the league, Allen left the Valley (then Gateway Conference) in 1996 after a successful run at Northern Iowa. When he left UNI after the 1996 season, his 75-26 record (.743 winning percentage) made him the winningest coach in league history. His Panther teams won or shared league titles seven straight seasons from 1990-96 and competed in the NCAA playoffs each of his last seven seasons at UNI. The Panthers advanced to the national semifinals in 1992 and 1996, and did not lose a home conference game in his eight seasons as head coach. A 1979 graduate of Northern Iowa, Allen followed more than 20 years of success as a player and coach at UNI with five seasons as head coach at Kansas (1997-2001). He later spent four seasons as associate head coach, tight ends coach and special teams coordinator at Iowa State (2002-05), helping direct the Cyclones to three bowl games. After being named Missouri State’s 19th head football coach on December 20, 2005, Allen’s inaugural Bear squad compiled a 2-9 record during the 2006 season. That was followed by a 6-5 campaign in 2007, when the Bears averaged 36.3 points per game. Following a 4-7 mark in 2008, Missouri State rebounded to post a 6-5 overall mark and 4-4 record in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. Eight players were recognized by the MVFC as all-conference performers, including first-teamers Clay Harbor, David Arkin and Valley Newcomer of the Year Antoine Wilkinson. During his head coaching career, Allen has mentored 18 Associated Press All-America players and 186 all-conference selections. He also has helped develop several professional players, including Bryce Paup, the 1995 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, and two-time NFL Most Valuable Player Kurt Warner.

Missouri State will attempt to remain in the thick of the Missouri Valley Football Conference race as it travels to South Dakota State. The Bears, 4-4 overall and 3-2 in the MVFC, are only a couple plays away from leading the nine-team league. Both of MSU’s league losses have come on the road in overtime — a 44-41 setback at Illinois State on Sept. 25 and a 38-35 defeat at the hands of Indiana State on Oct. 16. The Bears are still in search of their first road victory of the season as they are 4-0 within the confines of Plaster Field, but 0-4 when the visiting team. The Missouri State offense has been prolific this season, rolling up an average of 38.4 points and 459.1 yards of total offense per game. The offensive output has been nearly equal as the Bears are averaging 231.4 yards passing per game and 227.8 yards per contest on the ground. Senior quarterback Cody Kirby is coming off a career day last week against Southern Illinois, when he threw for a career-high 348 yards and three touchdowns in a 51-41 shootout victory.

For the season, Kirby has completed 57.5 percent of his passes for 1,834 yards and 10 touchdowns against only three interceptions. Kirby also leads the team with 12 rushing touchdowns and ranks third on the squad with 355 rushing yards. Chris Douglas leads the Bears with 783 yards, averaging 7.3 yards per carry with 10 touchdowns. Douglas has touchdown runs of 97 and 86 yards to his credit this season. Stephen Johnston has been a solid complement at running back, gaining 617 yards with four touchdowns. MSU’s offensive line is anchored by allMVFC performer and preseason All-America tackle David Arkin. The top receiver for the Bears this season has been Jermaine Saffold, who has caught 42 passes for 798 yards — an average of 19 yards per catch — with five touchdowns. Cadarrius Dotson has added 30 receptions for 377 yards and a score. Despite returning nine starters from a year ago, the Missouri State defense has had its share of struggles in 2010. The Bears rank last



in the MVFC for both pass defense (331.8 yards per game) and total defense (501.2). One of 20 players on the watch list for the Buck Buchanan Award as the top defensive player in the Football Championship Subdivision, linebacker Antoine Wilkinson leads the Bears with 68 total tackles, including 6.5 for loss and four sacks. As a team, the Bears has recorded 21 quarterback sacks. Strong safety Skylar Smith leads the secondary with 66 tackles and has an interception and five pass breakups to his credit. Jimmie Strong leads the team with four interceptions, while free saftey Derek Miller has intercepted two passes and notched 27 tackles. Reigning MVFC Special Teams Player of the Week Austin Witmer is a perfect 4-for-4 on field goal attempts this season, after taking over for Jordan Chiles. Chiles continues to handle the punting duties, averaging 37.7 yards per attempt and forcing 13 fair catches out of 41 punts. Brian Berry is averaging 24.7 yards per kickoff return, while Justin Fuselier has an average of 7.5 yards per punt return.

COACH STIG’S COMMENTS “General Parnell’s senior year has not been what he expected or what he worked so hard for. Having been a starter part of 2008 and all of 2009, his playing time was interrupted by a serious knee injury late in the 2009 season. General has paid the price through hard work to get back to the form that allowed him to dominate as a cornerback. In addition to the knee injury, General suddenly lost his mother late this summer. Whether General makes another interception or a tackle, he has shown our football family the grit it takes to battle back. Both on the field and off, General Parnell Makes a Difference.”

OLD GLORY FLAPS in a brisk south wind prior to the start of the closing ceremony of the 21st annual Veterans Vigil at the Brookings County Veterans Memorial in 2009. About 100 people turned out for

the event, which was sponsored by the Arnold Air Society of the Air Force ROTC at South Dakota State University. This year’s ceremony is 11:11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 11.

Cadets to honor vets at 24-hour vigil

Air Force ROTC cadets will march in a somber cadence at the 22nd annual Veterans Vigil at the Brookings County Veterans Memorial Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 10-11. The event is organized by the Arnold Air Society at South Dakota State University and includes an 11:11 a.m. closing ceremony on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. About 70 of the 85 SDSU Air Force ROTC cadets are expected to participate, marching in pairs in 30-minute shifts from 11 a.m. Nov. 10 to 11 a.m. Nov. 11 at the memorial on the west edge of Brookings. With 96 slots to fill, many cadets take more than one shift. Ryan Hahn, a cadet major with the local Arnold Air Society chapter, participated in his first vigil last year as a freshman. The vigil “gives you a chance to walk at the memorial and reflect in depth on what veterans have done for us,” Hahn said. When not marching, there is a tent erected at the memorial where the

cadets can go for shelter and relaxation. “But when we are marching the thoughts are strictly on the veterans, wondering if I’ll ever have to go through anything like they went through,” said Hahn, the cadet in charge of organizing this year’s event. A brief opening ceremony at 10:45 a.m. Nov. 10 includes the lighting of a small oil lamp, which symbolizes vigilance. It burns continuously for the 24hour vigil and then is extinguished at the end of the closing ceremonies. The public is invited to observe any part of the vigil, but particularly the opening and closing ceremonies. The vigil is dedicated to remembering every U.S. soldier who has been killed in action, taken prisoner or is missing in action. The vigil will be held regardless of weather and only in the case of extreme weather will the closing ceremony be cancelled. For more information, call Cadet Maj. Ryan Hahn, 605-295-0002 or Lt. Col. Carleton Hirschel, Arnold Air Society advisor, 605-688-6106.

Matt Nedved, facing the camera, a South Dakota State University sophomore from Brandon, marches with Rorey Bassett, a sophomore from Volga, at the Brookings County Veterans Memorial in 2009. Cadets march for 30-minute shiftsbeginning at 11 a.m. Nov. 10 and continuing to 11 a.m. Nov. 11, when closing ceremonies will be held.

2010 Jackrabbit Football



Heading into the start of the 2010 football season, six former South Dakota State standouts were in training camps of National Football League teams, continuing the Jackrabbits’ long tradition of developing players into pro prospects. Headlining the list was Adam Vinatieri of the Indianapolis Colts. Vinatieri has earned a reputation as one the most consistent and clutch kickers in the NFL. After two Pro Bowl selections (2002, 2004), he left New England following the 2005 season as the team’s career scoring leader. Vinatieri’s career totals include 338-of-412 on field goal attempts, 82 percent, and 1,530 career points. He holds the second-longest streak of consecutive 100-point seasons to start a career in NFL history with 13 — a streak that ended during an injury-plagued 2009 campaign. Vinatieri also has excelled in the postseason. He holds the distinction of being the only kicker in NFL history to play in five different Super Bowl games, and made a field goal four of those games. He kicked last-second game-winning field goals in Super Bowl XXXVI against St. Louis and Super Bowl XXXVIII versus Carolina, as well as a game-tying 45-yard field goal in a snowstorm against Oakland in the 2001 AFC Playoffs. His career postseason totals include 42-of-51 on field goals and a perfect 51-of-51 on extra points. Vinatieri’s field goal totals are NFL postseason records, as are his 177 points. Vinatieri began his professional career with the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe before signing with the New England Patriots in 1996. Four members of SDSU’s 2009 Football Championship Subdivision playoff team competed for NFL roster spots this summer, including defenisve standout Danny Batten. Batten became the first Jackrabbit player in 11 years to be taken in the NFL Draft, when he was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the sixth round. A defensive end in college, Batten was moved to linebacker at the professional level, but will miss the 2010 season after suffering an injury. Three other Jackrabbit standouts signed free-agent contracts following the 2010 draft. Offensive linemen Casey Bender and Casey Knips agreed to

terms with the Cleveland Browns and Arizona Cardinals, respecively, while linebacker Chris Johnson originally received a tryout with the Chicago Bears before signing with the Arizona Cardinals. In addition, Mitch Erickson spent training camp with the Seattle Seahawks, after spending the 2008 and 2009 season on the practice squad for the Denver Broncos. Another former Jackrabbit kicker, Parker Douglass, is playing professionally with the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League. Douglass kicked for the California Redwoods in 2009.

COACH STIG’S COMMENTS “Pete Reifenrath has a neat story. He has had to fight back from a numbers of setbacks to get where he is. He has been willing to fight and that fight has allowed him to help win a number of football games for the Jacks. Through all of the battles and the pressure of kicking, Pete is never without a smile and, at times, an off-thewall statement. The bottom line is, Pete has been ready and has made some big field goals for the Jacks. Peter Reifenrath in every way, shape and form, has Made a Difference.”

The past four seasons have dealt great change to the Missouri Valley Football Conference. Within that span, the league has lost a member, gained two members and changed its name. Despite those developments, a quality nationally competitive product has been a constant for the league, which celebrated its Silver Anniversary in 2009. The Missouri Valley Football Conference enters its 26th year of existence this fall and has proven to be one of the nation’s premier NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) leagues. There’s not much that has eluded the conference in its first 25 years of existence. The league’s first two-plus decades have included national championships, national players of the year, national coaches of the year, No. 1 national rankings, and countless All-Americans. Strong coaching and great players have helped make the league a national force, but the stability and leadership of Commissioner Patty Viverito -- the only commissioner the league has ever known -- has helped make the Missouri Valley Football Conference a standard bearer on the FCS scene. Indeed, all signs point to continued national prominence for the Missouri Valley Football Conference as it enters its 26th season in 2010. In June 2008, presidents of the nine-member Gateway Football Conference and the 10-member Missouri Valley Conference approved a rebranding initiative that changed the football conference name from the Gateway Football Conference to the Missouri Valley Football Conference. It represented the second name change for the football league. Initially, the conference competed as the Gateway Collegiate Athletic Conference (1985-91) and the Gateway Football Conference (1992-2007). Although the league shares the Missouri Valley name, the football-playing members compete under a separate administrative umbrella, as the Missouri Valley Conference and the Missouri Valley Football Conference will remain separate entities. While the 2009 season didn’t produce a national championship, it was a successful one, as Southern Illinois and South Dakota State represented the conference in the playoffs, marking the 15th-straight season in which at least two teams have participated in post-season play. For three-straight weeks to close out the regular season, Southern Illinois enjoyed the No. 1 national ranking, while RB Deji Karim of Southern Illinois and DE Danny Batten of South Dakota State were finalists in the Walter Payton Award and Buck Buchanan voting, respectively, with each finishing third. The Missouri Valley Football Conference has two recent national championships (Western

Kentucky - 2002; Youngstown State - 1997), and league members Youngstown State (3) and Southern Illinois (1) own additional titles prior to their league membership, meaning six FCS championship trophies are housed on league campuses, in addition to three (Youngstown State twice and UNI in 2005) runner-up finishes. Only five FCS leagues possess more than a single FCS championship trophy, and the Missouri Valley Football Conference is among that elite. In recent years, the league has established itself as a leader among FCS conferences. During the past 13 years, the league has two national championships and eight other semifinal trips. The league’s 36-27 playoff mark in that span is third-best among all FCS leagues, and the conference has had four teams reach the title game since 1997. The Missouri Valley Football Conference success is not limited to the immediate past. During the decade of the 1990’s, current members of the league compiled a 34-19 mark in the FCS playoffs, bettered only by the Southern Conference, whose members were 37-19 in that decade. Team accomplishments have helped solidify the Missouri Valley Football Conference as an FCS elite, but individuals at the league’s member institutions are the real source of pride within the conference. Thanks to great players and strong coaching, the Missouri Valley Football Conference has reached and will maintain its place among the FCS best. Last year, despite tough scheduling, six teams in the conference had winning records, marking the first time that’s ever happened in the 25-year history of the league. The Missouri Valley Football Conference has had four teams (or more) with better than .500 records in the same season 16 times now, including the past 12 seasons. In 1997, Youngstown State grabbed the crowned jewel for the conference, as the league had one of its most successful seasons. In addition to claiming the league’s first national championship, the Penguins finished the year ranked No. 1, marking the first time a league member has held that spot in a season-ending poll. That year, Western Illinois was at No. 6, marking the first time the league ended the year with two teams ranked among the top six. In 1999, the Missouri Valley Football Conference trumped that, as Youngstown State finished the year No. 2 and Illinois State was No. 3. UNI also finished in the top 20 in both nationally recognized polls. In 2002, Western Kentucky added to the league’s national championship trophy case with an FCS crown, while both WKU (No. 1) and Western Illinois (No. 5) finished among the nation’s top five in the season-ending polls. The Hilltoppers became the first school to earn

MISSOURI VALLEY FOOTBALL CONFERENCE victories against the tourney’s top three seeds en route to their national championship. In 2003, four Valley teams represented the league in the 16-team NCAA playoffs, marking the first time any league has sent that many to the playoffs in the same year. In 2004, Southern Illinois spent a leaguerecord 11 weeks as the nation’s top-ranked team, while all eight league teams received votes for the Top 25 at some point in the season. Linebacker Boomer Grigsby of Illinois State earned a National Defensive Player of the Year honor, while SIU’s Jerry Kill was National Coach of the Year. In 2005, UNI became the fourth league school to reach the FCS championship game since 1997, while Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky combined to hold the nation’s No. 1 ranking in the top-25 polls for five weeks. In 2006, Youngstown State won its secondstraight league championship and the Penguins were joined in the playoff field by Illinois State and Southern Illinois. That marked only the second time in league history the league had more than two teams qualify for the 16-team playoff field. SIU’s Arkee Whitlock was a national player of the year award winner (College Sporting News) and was third in the Walter Payton Award balloting. In 2008, six teams were nationally ranked in the same poll, marking the first time in league history that had happened. Those six teams were ranked for four consecutive weeks. North Dakota State held the nation’s No. 1 spot for its first two weeks as a conference member, while rookie coach Dale Lennon of Southern Illinois became just the third mentor to win Coach of the Year honors in his first league season. The original Gateway Conference was founded as a women’s athletic organization in August 1982, following the dissolution of the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. In September of that year, Patty Viverito was named the first commissioner of the newly founded conference, a position she maintains today. Before moving to its permanent headquarters in St. Louis, the conference spent three organizational months on the campus of Eastern Illinois University. In July of 1992, the 10-team conference disbanded as its women’s programs realigned with their men’s teams in their respective conferences. The league assumed its new name on July 1, 1992, becoming the Gateway Football Conference, an NCAA FCS football league comprised of seven Midwest institutions. The Gateway Conference football division was born on August 21, 1985, when the Gate-

SOUTH DAKOTA STATE officially opened the Missouri Valley Football Conference era by defeating Youngstown State, 40-7, on Sept. 6, 2008, at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. The Jackrabbits ended their inaugural season in the MVFC with a 6-2 league record. way Conference President’s Council voted to add a FCS football division for six of its members to the previously all-women’s athletics organization. Founding members of the football division were Eastern Illinois, Illinois State, UNI, Southern Illinois, Southwest Missouri State (now Missouri State) and Western Illinois. The creation of the football division marked the first time in college annals that football was added to a women’s conference. In June of 1986, Indiana State became the seventh member of the conference. In the 25 years of the football division, league membership has been stable -- with only five fluctuations since 1986 Eastern Illinois left the league to join the Ohio Valley Conference in 1996, while Youngstown State joined the conference in 1997 to return league membership to its original seven-member status. League membership reached what was then an all-time high of eight members for the start of the 2001 season with the addition of Western Kentucky. The Hilltoppers left the league after six years to join the Sun Belt (FBS) North Dakota State and South Dakota State joined for the start of the 2008 season, giving the league nine members for the first time. The Missouri Valley Football Conference is among 10 FCS conferences that receive automatic bids to the NCAA FCS Championship. The conference has had an automatic bid since 1986, as the FCS Football Committee waived the league’s two-year waiting period and granted the league an automatic bid after just one year. The Missouri Valley Football Conference is the only automatic FCS qualifying conference that sponsors football as its only sport, as the league completed its service to women’s athlet-

ics following the 1991-92 season. Although the league no longer sponsors women’s sports, the league has an historical place in the development of intercollegiate women’s athletics. The 10 founders of the original Gateway Collegiate Athletic Conference currently belong to three conferences. Eight members joined their men’s programs in the Missouri Valley: Bradley, Drake, Illinois State, Indiana State, Missouri State, UNI, Southern Illinois, and Wichita State. Eastern Illinois is now in the Ohio Valley Conference, while Western Illinois competes in The Summit League. Members of the Missouri Valley Football Conference (and initial year of membership) include: Illinois State University (1985), Indiana State University (1986), Missouri State University (1985), North Dakota State University (2008), the University of Northern Iowa (1985), South Dakota State University (2008), Southern Illinois University (1985), Western Illinois University (1985), and Youngstown State University (1997). Five Missouri Valley Football Conference members also compete in the Missouri Valley Conference (Illinois State, Indiana State, Missouri State, Northern Iowa, and Southern Illinois). Three league schools compete in The Summit League (North Dakota State, South Dakota State, and Western Illinois), while Youngstown State competes in the Horizon League for its other sports. In its decade of operation, the Gateway sponsored championships in 10 women’s sports and football. The women’s sports were basketball, cross country, golf, indoor and outdoor track & field, swimming and diving, tennis, softball, volleyball and, early on, field hockey.

MVFC NOTES, STANDINGS OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Matt Barr, 6-2, 210, Sr., QB, Western Illinois (Belvidere, Ill.).

Jackrabbit Athletic Scholarship Endowment The opportunity to provide a gift to South Dakota State University athletics in your name or in the name of a loved one will truly make a difference in the lives of Jackrabbit student-athletes for years to come. Endowments help ensure the long-term sustainability of Jackrabbit Athletics and its programs. A pledge of $20,000 is needed to start an endowment. Payments may be structured toward the endowment a number of different ways. Once the fund reaches the $20,000 mark, distributions from the fund are used to support scholarships for student-athletes of South Dakota State University. For more information on giving opportunities, contact Mike Burgers, Associate Athletic Director for Development at (605) 697-7475 or by email at: The Bum 57
