BILLINGS, MT (MSU) – Minot State earned a 1-0 shutout win against Mont. State Billings on the road at Yellowjacket Soccer Field on Thursday. The Beavers broke the scoreless tie when Illiana Rivera notched her first goal of the season in the 27th minute, assisted by Sofia Galvez. Minot recorded two shots on goal. Siriana Gudino collected seven saves for the Beavers out of 12 total Yellowjackets shots. The win improved Minot State’s record to 2-0-0 overall. The Beavers are back in action on Saturday versus Black Hills State University in Billings, MT.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — For all Kirk Cousins has achieved entering his 12th season in the NFL, his sixth with the Minnesota Vikings, he has rarely escaped the very situation that defines this cutthroat league of short-lived careers. Yes, Cousins is playing for his job once again. With no extension this year to his contract, his future with the Vikings has never been less clear. “That’s kind of the life you live,” Cousins said this week. “I think when you take that seriously, it lends itself to having success more days than not.” Since he became a full-time starter in 2015 with Washington, Cousins has played in more regular-season games (128) than any other NFL quarterback and accumulated the third-most passing yards (34,110). Tom Brady, who has retired, and Matt Ryan, who remains a free agent, are the only ones with more.
Given the market price at his position and a profile that hasn’t matched the all-time greats, the Vikings defensibly decided to let 2023 play out before making another commitment even though there’s no succession plan yet. At this point in his career, though, Cousins is hardly sweating it out. “If there is entitlement in the NFL, that organization is probably doing it wrong,” Cousins said, crediting Brady, a sure-bet Hall of Fame selection, with perpetuating that mantra. “It’s going to bring out the best in all of us. If it ever isn’t that way here, I would be the first one to complain and say, ‘Hey, I sense some entitlement, so let’s change that.’”
If this is his last year wearing purple, Cousins is in position to make it count. The Vikings, who host Tampa Bay to open the season on Sunday, boast the league’s reigning receiving leader in Justin Jefferson, who’s barely beginning his prime at age 24. Tight end T.J. Hockenson made an immediate impact after arriving in a trade with Detroit. The second year in coach Kevin O’Connell’s offense ought to be smoother for everyone involved, coming off a 13-4 season during which the Vikings ranked seventh in yards and eighth in points. “In just about every phase of quarterbacking, you’re going to feel more comfortable,” Cousins said.
On the flip side, Baker Mayfield’s underwhelming start in the NFL since Cleveland made him the first overall pick in the 2018 draft has landed him with a fourth team in the last 15 months. He’ll make his debut with the Bucs in a daunting environment behind a revamped offensive line at U.S. Bank Stadium. “I act like I’ve been here, but I also still have the young mindset,” Mayfield said. “I always have room to grow and learn, but also take command of it — be a leader and just show that instead of just focusing on the game plan only. Yeah, I have to do my job, but also bring everybody else along at the same time.”
