Our area is a hotbed for great college football, and several of the draft-eligible players that played the college game in Nebraska, South Dakota, or North Dakota may very well be drafted into the NFL at this weekend's draft.

I'll do my best to outline the draftable prospects from the three states, as the NFL Draft approaches.

The 2023 NFL Draft gets going on Thursday night, April 27th from Kansas City, and will run through Saturday, April 29th.

13 Times Sioux Falls Made it into a 'Jeopardy!' Question

If the world was divided into Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune people, I would be down for Jeopardy! all the way. It's a lot more fun, it makes me feel smart because I can retain lots of trivia, and I am a horrible speller. So Wheel is out, no whammies.

Recently I discovered (I mean wasted a lot of time on) a website that is an archive of clues that have been on Jeopardy!.

While digging around the archive, I wanted to find out how often Sioux Falls came up in a question (Answer) on the show. Since 1990 Sioux Falls has been part of a question or an answer 13 times.
