I understand that arguments need to be made for either of these teams and the points are worth a look considering how much money we’ve previously made from SFA as a dog. Although there has been some turnover with South Dakota State, the roster still has some solid pieces from last year’s group and I think it’s just a case of rebuilding and retooling for the Jackrabbits and the success it was. comes early and will continue after I’ll put the points here with South Dakota State.
