Those that are fans of South Dakota and South Dakota State are well aware of the long history of disrespect and ignorance from the national media.

It never ends. Maybe this year we will actually see real SDSU highlights ahead of the matchup, or at least have our team's name, mascot, or college town correct. We'll see.

Until we see it for ourselves, sit down, take in the action, and pass me Dakoka Cola.
