Bowling Green Links

That's right, it's Bowling Green Week on Rock M Nation!  By Friday, you'll know more about the Falcons than you thought imaginable...

First, the basics:

The Falcons hired a new coach in the offseason: former Fordham and Richmond Head Coach Dave Clawson.  He brought Richmond back to respectability and helped lay the foundation for last season's FCS national title...but right now, he's more known for being the Offensive Coordinator for Tennessee in 2008...when they had just about the worst offense of any major conference team.

Preseason predictions:

  • Athlon: Bowling Green = #99
  • NY Times' lovely The Quad blog: Bowling Green = #86
    Each of the last three Bowling Green coaches have led the Falcons to a solid improvement in their first season in charge. In 1991, Gary Blackney and B.G.S.U. finished 11-3 (tying a school-record for wins in a season), an eight-game improvement over the team’s 3-8 finish in 1990. Urban Meyer’s first year in charge, 2001, saw the Falcons go 8-3, a six-game improvement over the previous season (2-9, Blackney’s last season). In 2003, a talented B.G.S.U. squad went 11-3, a two-game improvement over Meyer’s last season (9-3). We’ll touch on Clawson’s coaching resume in a moment, but he has a history of rapidly turning around the programs he inherits.

Needless to say, things didn't go tremendously well for Mizzou last time they played a first-year Bowling Green coach (or second-year, for that matter).
