Kriens: Will The Vikings' Success Last?
Many are surprised at the Minnesota Vikings’ 4-1 start. They have already won more games than the three they won last season with many of the key players from the 2011 team back. But will their success last?
Honest question for you guys: would you read a student's take on a subject not relevant to you? It's the middle of the FCS football season and your team is actually halfway decent - why not post something on another school's message board about that? That's going to get you far more readership, trust me.
No one cares about some yahoo's take on pro sports - your average reader can turn to ESPN or local radio for that and get far better takes. Student sports media is far better served focusing on their niche, which in your case is SDSU sports (again, FOOTBALL, since we're in the prime of the season and your team's performance is relevant to Bisonville) and how they relate to NDSU (if you're going to pimp your stuff on Bisonville).
Business 101: Find a need and address it. Another take on the NFL isn't going to get much readership. Focus on a little-covered quantity (SDSU football, perhaps?) is.
