But, and maybe it's just the radio talk-show host side of me, I'd much rather have THIS guy coming to Fargo this weekend when North Dakota State hosts the Chanticleers in an FCS playoff game. Because THIS guy is a walking sound bite, THIS guy talks about dogs and cats instead of motivational pitches you see on posters in people's offices (like mine).

This guy was the coach (and a successful one) who was at Coastal Carolina before being fired to make room for the billionaire. Ladies and gentlemen, meet David Bennett:
