FRESNO, Calif. — Former Fargo radio host Christopher Gabriel sent along this brief clip from his current show on 940 ESPN in Fresno in which Fresno State running backs coach Lee Marks recalls coaching in the Fargodome while he was an assistant with South Dakota State in 2012.

It's pretty standard fare — and opposing coach saying the dome has a great atmosphere — but Christopher thought Bison fans would enjoy it so he passed it along.

Marks was with SDSU only one season, but he's been around and coached games in a lot of places. What he says about the dome is very complimentary.

The 2012 season saw NDSU and SDSU play twice. The Bison won a 20-17 game in the regular season at the Fargodome and followed it with a 28-3 second-round win at the dome in the playoffs.

The Jackrabbits' star was running back Zach Zenner, who was coached by Marks.


Anyway, give it a listen here:
