Welcome to the Bison Report

First and foremost, I want to welcome everyone to Scout's newest site that will be covering North Dakota State athletics and the site will be called the Bison Report.

First and foremost, I want to welcome everyone to Scout's newest site that will be covering North Dakota State athletics and the site will be called the Bison Report.

My name is Ryan Burns and I'll be the publisher of the site, so here's a little bit of background on me. I spent my whole life in the Twin Cities of Minnesota and I recently just graduated from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities with a degree in Sports Management. I'm an avid outdoorsman along with a sports fanatic as I love to hunt waterfowl and deer, along with fishing for walleyes and salmon.

I've spent the last four years on Minnesota's Rivals.com site, the last two as it's publisher. I'll also be the publisher of Minnesota's Scout site as well. All that being said, I want everyone to know that I have a tremendous amount of respect for NDSU athletics, especially their football and men's basketball program. It's an absolutely astonishing feat to win four straight national titles in division one football and with the men's basketball program going to the NCAA tournament in back to back years for the first time in school history, I can't think of a better time to start the site.

I will be focusing on a lot on football and men's basketball recruiting to start in the first few months and plan on expanding coverage from there, but I can't tell you how excited I am to cover the Bison.

Feel free to reach out to me at burns599@umn.edu with any questions, comments or info, but looking forward to get this thing started!

Go Bison!

Ryan Burns
