    Unless you think it's normal for Fleck to follow Gindorf and Gindorf to follow Fleck on Twitter today... My guess is he's gone

    Ryan Burns of Bison Report must be happy.

    Started following him yesterday.


    Hope he stays a Bison as he's an unbelievable talent. But isn't the first time this may/will happen and won't be the last.

    Ryan Burns is the publisher of both GopherIllustrated and the Bison Report on Scout. He is clearly a huge Gopher fan. He interviews players being recruited by both programs and he clearly has inside information on the recruiting strategies of both programs.

    Question for Bison fans: do you think Burns has a conflict of interest?

    I've tried to give Ryan the benefit of the doubt as when the coverage has been focused on NDSU it has been a very good product. My thoughts were they would be grooming Ross to take over the recruiting portion in addition to the great athletics coverage he provides but that doesn't seem to be the case.

    It is tough to not feel there is a conflict of interest when he is not equally sharing information to paying Bisonreport subscribers that he is posting about NDSU commits on Gopher Report. Want to continue to support Scout as I think it is good visibility for our program, but recent events have been highly frustrating.

    I've had this feeling regarding Burns for a while. Frankly I think it's deceitful. I also hope that he isn't being invited to any NDSU football camps to "interview recruits" when he is probably just scouting for another program. Maybe I'm wrong and it's of value to both programs but that sure isn't how it looks.

    I highly doubt any recruit would determine where they'll go based on what he would say to them.

    It's not what he would say to a recruit, it's additional info/insight he could provide to another program both about recruits as well as NDSU inner workings. He is essentially acting like a gopher scout with access to another program. Not sure how this doesn't bother people

    I like that Bison Report exists. Ross Uglem does a great job! I have respect for entrepreneurs. Ryan Burns made a bet on NDSU when he became the publisher of Bison Report for Scout. However, I do NOT think that Burns should personally be the recruiting reporter for Bison Report, because of his rooting interest in the Gophers. Most of the time, the programs are recruiting different players, but there is some overlap. Burns can potentially develop information when he talks to players and others involved in the recruiting process that can be helpful to one program and harmful to another.
