Pretty interesting tweet from a recently departed player from FU   Lots of comments about coach/player relationships there   Not saying I agree or disagree but obviously was within the program and does not think real highly of current staff

He was one of their top recruits, BV was fawning all over him.  But now he can't hack it.  

I am sure the coaches will be saying "he didn't have what it takes to play the Bison way", or some !@#$ like that.  Like they have before.

To the surprise of no one, it looks like the "once a bison, always a bison" mantra has temporarily been suspended while they trash this kid for making his experience public.

Sorry if this has been covered but why didn't we grab that big kid from minot, Cook?

“I’m going to remember how much the coaches actually cared about the players,” Cook said. “You hear some schools where the coaches care about winning, nothing else. I mean that’s kind of the attitude that it was when I went to NDSU (North Dakota State) and visited there and was talking to them. It was hard for me to consider a program where they are focused more on the games to win rather than developing the players into men of character".

 

 

Sounds like a reoccurring theme there at cow college. 

 

Very refreshing to have bubba and staff.

Not everyone can hack it.  Total different ball game from HS. The move up can be a pretty big slap in the face when the shine wears off and you are looking at kids who are just as good or better than you are. Youre not top dog anymore.  Plus after a time they realize they just dont have the commitment.  Doesnt make any difference if you are a top recruit or not. You still have to prove yourself.

Hes still in school from what I can tell. Lets see if he goes some place else.

Yeah, and not every coaching staff has class. Not saying NDSU is the worst of the worst, but some staffs are certainly better than others.

I'm not sure I am going to read too much into a few players bad mouthing coaches or a program. Every program has people who leave or don't have a good experience. If fans are always wondering why some players are playing over others with no personal stake in the matter, imagine how it compounds when you are the one that feels they are being treated unfairly.

What does that have to do with some of your fans showing their ndsu class and going after the kid after he talked about his experience?

This is the post I was responding to----

He was one of their top recruits, BV was fawning all over him.  But now he can't hack it.  

I am sure the coaches will be saying "he didn't have what it takes to play the Bison way", or some !@#$ like that.  Like they have before.""

Now I will respond to your comment--- Everytime somebody leaves a program---even at UND people speculate why the player is leaving. Some of the comments can be classless.

I agree.

I'm not sure what the big deal is here, I don't even see the kid's comments as some grand indictment on the program. Some players connect with coaches more than others, he apparently didn't. If you're in a situation where you're not connecting with your position coach, it would be easy to think they don't care about you and all they care about is winning. Wish this kid success on his path moving forward, but this is a non-story from my perspective. It's a product of the times, everybody can get their sometime not-so-well thought out opinion instantly in 140 characters.

And some fans can completely disregard those opinions because their school can do no wrong.

I read it as a poitive but I can see that where that one sentence is interjected could make it iffy if one wants to take it that way..

And some fans blow small things out of proportion to feed their own narrative that NDSU is evil.

Agreed. This could happen here at any time especially as the team becomes more competitive and playing time is difficult to keep/get.
