Sure enough, the UMD Bulldogs football team heads to Alabama for the NCAA Division II championship game and what do they get?
It shouldn’t bother them, though. Most of the kids figure to be ice-hardened alums of the Minnesota and Wisconsin gridirons.
Still, I have to imagine that a few of the Mighty Mutts were hoping for a reprieve from the cold. They should get it.
Game day figures to be partly sunny, with a high near 53 degrees according to the National Weather Service.
“Say the word ‘snow’ down here, and people panic,” North Alabama senior Adam White said. “But in the summer we have tornado warnings two or three times a week, and people just blow that off because we’re used to it.”
Then again, a little snow might be an advantage against Northwest Missouri State.
