Power, with an asterisk

Power, with an asterisk

The prospect of having 480 pounds of backfield muscle with Tyler Roehl and Tyler Jangula (see McFeely column) certainly is interesting. Roehl had a couple of bursts in last week’s scrimmage that indicated he can handle a tailback role.

I just don’t see him as the full-time, Kyle-Steffes-type of guy, however. And I don’t think the Bison coaches and tailbacks do, either. You still need a breakaway threat and Pete Blincoe provides that.

Head coach Craig Bohl said NDSU needs to recognize that it is a power-based team. Forgive me if I have visions of Lamar Gordon up the middle against UND 35 times for an average of about a yard a carry.

NDSU may be a power-based team right now, but it is still a West Coast offense and it still has speed and athleticism at receiver and Steve Walker at quarterback. Roehl up the middle for 35 carries? I doubt it.
