....The MSU football team is enjoying a bye–week as they wait to see who they will host in the region tournament a week from Saturday, thanksgiving weekend here in Mankato. The mavericks have just completed their first undefeated season in school history. Ironically they accomplished the task with head coach Todd Hoffner on the sidelines, his fate on child pornography charges still undecided. Somehow the team was able to pull together under acting head coach Aaron Keen. MSU Director of athletics Kevin Buisman says their success is a credit to the coaching staff and especially to the young men who wear the uniform.
