Edit: Craig Bohl on KFAN

You can find the link to P.A. & Dubay's interview of NDSU Head Coach Craig Bohl here.

A really good interview. Bohl seems to be a guy who is down to earth and understands that "we are going to need to play really well to have an opportunity to win."

P.A. makes a good point in asking Bohl if there might be more pressure on the Bison than the Gophers going into this game. That's an interesting thought. With how fired up the Bison fans are, talking about taking over the Dome and dominating the game, it's an interesting turn-around to consider that maybe there's more pressure right now on the Bison to perform in this game than the Gophers.

I think to a person most people would admit that if Vegas was laying down a spread for this game that the Bison would be favored, or at least the spread would be very small. There's no way to know for sure. As a co-worker of mine (Bison fan) and I have have talked about ad nauseam this week, there is really no way to compare these teams with no common opponents and playing against completely different competition. Obviously the Bison are 6-0, they have dominated their competition, and the Gophers are 1-5 and have played poorly for the most part. But the Gophers haven't been playing Division I-AA (or whatever it's being called this week) teams, and the Bison haven't been playing Big10 teams. In addition the Gophers are a completely different team than they were last year, and the Bison are a year older. There is just basis for comparison coming into this game.

It's going to be exciting, and I can't wait!

Go Gophers!!!
