Bemidji State’s fall contingent was led by its soccer team, which had 10 student-athletes recognized for academic accomplishment. BSU also had six members of its volleyball football teams garner the honor, while two student-athletes from the cross country team were selected to the 2016 all-academic squad.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer underwent emergency eye surgery late Wednesday night.  Few details are available other than a statement from Vikings general manager Rick Spielman saying, "Mike Zimmer is having emergency eye surgery tonight. His status for coaching tomorrow’s game is uncertain. I have met with the coaches and players and we have a contingency plan in place if Mike is unable to coach against Dallas."

If Zimmer is unavailable to coach against the Cowboys Thursday night the Vikings would likely turn to former NFL head coaches Tony Sparano or Pat Shurmur, according to Adam Schefter. Shurmur runs the Vikings’ offense and Sparano coaches the offensive line.

Shurmur was a head coach in Cleveland and Sparano a head coach in Miami. Zimmer had surgery to repair a torn retina earlier this season.

The Vikings host teh Dallas Coyboys tonight at U-S Bank Stadium.  Listen on 1300 The Legends.
