I honestly believe, and I know some will disagree with me on this, but the Dakota teams are so far ahead of the others in the conferences, that they purposely play at different levels and speeds during a game with the sole purpose of challenging themselves to get better to help prepare for the post-season.  You only get better when you either 1) play someone who is better or 2) you create some adversity which you must then overcome during a game.  I first noticed it when we played the Bison in football on our own field.  It's like they dont throw their best punches at you until later in the game when they need it.  Just my opinion but I am sticking with it.

With Sam being the only player honored, I assume the other players listed as Seniors will be back next year.
