NDSUjr is getting weirder and weirder by the second.

Quote from: Stewart Mandel
Kansas State (B+): North Dakota State coach Chris Klieman.
It puzzled me why K-State fans initially freaked out over the school hiring an FCS coach. First of all, Klieman wasn’t just any FCS coach, he went 69-6 and won four national championships in five years. The 51-year-old Iowa native also just feels like a good fit in Manhattan, where finding diamond-in-the-rough recruits and developing them is essential. I would have had slightly more confidence in Satterfield or Brown, but there’s a lot to like about Klieman, who has the unenviable task of succeeding K-State icon LHC Bill Snyder.

[...]

Kansas (D): Dos Equis spokesman Les Miles.
I once gave Kansas an A for hiring Turner Gill (whoops) and an F for hiring Charlie Weis (accurate). Miles isn’t divisive and arrogant like Weis — if anything, he’s extremely upbeat and charismatic — but I fear his tenure could be nearly as disastrous. The 65-year-old Michigan Man failed to catch on to the evolution of college offenses at LSU and has given no indication he’s learned from his mistakes. He’s assembled a mostly underwhelming staff. Simply put, a national championship ring from 12 years ago isn’t going to turn around the Big 12’s worst program by itself.
