    I was listening to 740 today and they had a 10 minute conversation about Klieman joining Fleck's staff, one of the guys made it seem like it was this big promotion and that $100k raise was huge. I am sitting there thinking to myself there is no way he would ever want to sign up for that dumpster fire.

    He'd make a good DC. I can't imagine him putting up with Fleck's circus but maybe staying near home would be a big enough draw to overcome that.
    He has put together a quality staff that has for the most part stuck together, that is a massive quality to have a head coach. I do think he has some issues with clock management but he is a coach that went into Iowa and won. He has kept reloading talent on this team, he and staff are lights out on the recruiting trail. If he could find the right OC to help him with some things he would be more than fine in the FBS.

    Since my opinion is as relevant as any, I would see a place like Oklahoma having interest in a defensive minded coach like Klieman. Lincoln Riley has already fired his DC (Bob Stoop's brother) since OU can score 40 to 50+ points and still lose in the Big12. OU wants to pretend they belong in "the playoffs" and they need some defense to do so. HC, no, but DC at OU or similar universities places you in a salary bracket of close to $1 million per year. Those folks that think Klieman would somehow only relocate a few hundred miles to Iowa or Minnesota are delusional. Money isn't everything but it sure does influence life decisions. For someone in the coaching profession, there are worse things than being defensive coordinator at a P5 program.

There are a good number of coaches that can take over the rein's of a winning program and continue to win. There a 'VERY FEW' that can build a program from the bottom like Bohl did. I will always consider Bohl in a class by himself. How soon we forget where NDSU was at when he came to the Bison and where this program was at when he left. The Cupboard was full!!!! That man deserves a statue.
    I do agree to some extent but this train is showing no signs of letting up and I donít think many coaches can sustain the success that Klieman has done.

    I, for one, CAN'T WAIT for the whole series of threads that will naturally spring from this wonderful font of inane speculation:

    "Looking ahead... What changes are made after our next losing season?"
    "Looking ahead... Who takes over when Trey Lance transfers?"
    "Looking ahead... Where do we tailgate when the West Lot gets shut down?"
    "Looking ahead... What new design is used after we lose with the Harvest Helmets?"
    "Looking ahead... Who's next in here after AC/DC?"
    "Looking ahead... How do we combat an NCAA investigation?"
    "Looking ahead... Where will we play when the FargoDome roof caves in?"
    "Looking ahead... How many suicides after UND beats us in conference play?"
    "Looking ahead... What's our name gonna be after we change out of 'Bison'?"
