    Exactly. And he can gather that information while telling people that he is representing "Bison Report."

The quality of the content has declined after he got subscribers. John Neis does a great job and he does it for free without feeding inside info.

    Edit. I've got 5 positive reps in about 5 minutes after posting this
    My card expires in March. I probably won't renew.

    I agree, but that isn't the issue. He has the opportunity to gather lots of intelligence from potential recruits, high school coaches, etc. Who is recruiting a player? What have college programs been saying to a recruit? Etc. That information has value and can be used for or against a particular program.

    Not sure how it all works but as big as ndsu football has got, y don't they have a dedicated person to just the bison so you don't have this problem. I agree with the majority that the gophers could get valuable information from Ryan

    I guarantee that we have more than one verbal that he is encouraging Fleck to flip.

    And RB also tweeted "they" are taking another look at Zeke Ott,
    Caledonia MN, a Grand Forks Community College commit.
    Please! Stay away from Farmington MN......

    At least Minny's last verbal today was a big TE/DE, Nate Umlor 6'5, 260 lb,
    Allendale Michigan, a Western Michigan flip,
    if that helps keep Gindorff......

    I think I'll choose not to follow a site when the individual who runs it cheers for one of the programs he covers to recruit and flip players who have verbally committed to the Bison.

    Nothing really wrong with an individual doing that, but I just don't think I want to support such things.

    The biggest thing now would be signing day being so close that if he flips some guys it will be hard to replace them on such short notice.

    Question; how much access has Ryan Burns had to NDSU? Interviews with recruits, and coaches....camps? Does he get to watch camps, and drills etc?

    How do you know he's not providing the same info to NDSU coaches about MN or other schools? Guessing he is providing something of value to get all the inside information.
