A lot of students saying this surprise play could be a big distraction.
On this cold winter day, campus just got a little more bitter.
Hannah Wright/NDSU Junior: "wow, that's really weird. I don't know why he would do that. He's in a contract."
Students still trying to turn what they thought was a rumor into reality.
Preston Nichols/NDSU Junior: "Saw someone's retweet about someone saying oh Coach Bohl is leaving."
But once the Bison quarterback tweeted it out himself,
Nichols: "kind of sank in that it was actually reality."
After confirmation, Number 16, Brock Jensen tweeted out "really happy for coach, love that man with all my heart..."
Others online, weren't as sweet with their words.
