31st August 2016

Bemidji State University announced that Head Football Coach Jeff Tesch is on a leave of absence, while they have named Brent Bolte as Interim Head Coach. Tesch, who would have started his 21st season at BSU, is no longer listed on the Coaches page on the Official BSU Athletics website. His Facebook page also says that he was “Former Head Football Coach at Bemidji State U”.

Bolte has been on the staff since 2000, and was named a full time assistant coach in 2003. He was named Co-Defensive Coordinator in 2005, and was named sole Defensive Coordinator in 2013.

Bemidji State opens the season Thursday night at home in the Community Appreciation Day game hosting Upper Iowa. Community Appreciation Day, which is FREE, begins at 4:30pm. The Benusa Pregame Show begins at 5:30pm, with the kickoff set for 6pm. Listen on 92.1 The River, or online at beaverradionetwork.com

Our first guests tonight will be Interim Head Football Coach Brent Bolte as well as BSU Director of Athletics Tracy Dill.

Teddy Bridgewater suffered a knee injury at Vikings practice Tuesday afternoon and it will end his season. The Vikings announced that Bridgewater suffered a torn ACL and dislocated knee in a non-contact injury.  “Teddy is a great kid,” said Zimmer. “He’ll be back as soon as he possibly can be if it is real bad, but we’re going to keep fighting.”  The injury was severe enough for the Vikings to call off practice after just 25 minutes. They also called an ambulance to Winter Park to take Bridgewater to the hospital.

Brian Dozier, homered on the first pitch of Tuesday's game against the Indians, giving him his 31st of the year and his 12th in August, which is the most homers a Twins player has hit in a month since Harmon Killebrew also smacked a dozen dingers in July of 1969.  The Twins still lost the game 5-4 at Cleveland last night.  With the loss, Minnesota's season-long skid extended to 12 games. It is the team's longest such slump since losing 14 consecutive games in 1982.

The Minnesota Lynx are off until Friday when they host the Mystics at Target Center.

Bemidji Lumberjacks action from yesterday included a 12-1 boys soccer win over Detroit Lakes.  The girls swim team lost to Brainerd 113-73.  Volleyball lost at St Cloud Tech 3-2.
