Great White Hype

Written by Mr. Pink on Monday, November 29th, 2010
Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis went for 131 on the ground yesterday bringing his season total to 905 yards rushing.  With 5 games still left in the year Hillis could do something that hasnt been done in a long long long time in the NFL.....a white running back rushing for 1000 yards in a season.  So that brings me to the trivia question of the decade.  Without using ur high powered google machines can any one you out there name the last WHITE running back to rush for 1000 yards in a...   Read More >

Written by SportsBuzzard 1 on Sunday, November 21st, 2010
The Buzzard Brass mulled over the Monster Class 9A Player of the Year nominees long and hard. After much debate and buzzard bickering the decision that was reached was a precedent setting one. There would be no single 9A POTY award this year, but rather it would be awarded to the ENTIRE Harding Count Rancher team!

It’s Not Just Football; West River is Bad In Volleyball Too.

Written by East River 1 on Friday, November 19th, 2010
West River sends one team, Harding County, to the Dome and we saw what happened to the undefeated “golden boy” team from out yonder. All six football championships go to East River as I predicted back in late August. One out of 12 possible teams make it to the dome. Yesterday, West River brought that same competitive spirit to the volleyball scene. Rapid City Stevens falls to Yankton, The New York Yankees (St. Thomas) of the mighty Black Hills Conference got thumped by Sisseton, and Edgemont (h...   Read More >

CLASS 11AA MONSTER PLAYER OF THE YEAR: SETH JOHNSON

Written by SportsBuzzard 1 on Friday, November 19th, 2010
There were a lot of outstanding players in Class 11AA this season, but few were able to play both sides of the ball and weather the season without injury. In other words, an Iron Man that didn’t rust. Granted, the injury bug can strike any player at any time, and sometimes you have to rely upon luck to stay healthy. However, hard work and determination also seem to come into play, particularly in the long and grueling Class 11AA season that is packed with exceptionally hard knocks and tons of ...   Read More >

STM: THE NEW YORK YANKEES OF THE BLACK HILLS CONFERENCE?

Written by SportsBuzzard 1 on Sunday, November 14th, 2010
Early this football season Groovy had a great post on the history of the Black Hills Conference (BHC).  As noted by Groovy, there have been teams come and go through the history of the conference. Some teams come and go and come back again, for example, the Spearfish Spartans. Rivalries follow with the changes in the conference. No doubt, the Spearfish/Belle Fourche rivalry will ...   Read More >
