Since new Bowling Green State University football coach Dino Babers arrived on campus, the mantra has been Falcon Fast.
From the football field to commercials, the new slogan has engulfed the student body, let alone the BGSU community.
Almost six months since the hiring, haven't we heard enough Falcon Fast talk?
Not according to Babers.
"The goal of the season is Falcon Fast. It's part of our culture, it's what we try to do," Babers said in a telephone interview from Ford Field at the Mid-American Conference's football media day Wednesday. "It's the way we train. It's the way we lift. It's the way we operate. It's the way we carry ourselves. We still understand that it's the little things that make the difference, and we're going to pay attention to detail and cross Ts and dot Is. We can do all that with the Falcon Fast philosophy."
Falcon Fast isn't just speed and an up-tempo pace on the football field. It's a lifestyle, and Babers wants to continue to instill that lifestyle in order to deliver the Falcons another MAC championship.

Marcus Perrier is leaving the Bowling Green Falcon hockey program, the senior defenseman announced Wednesday on Twitter.
The undrafted free agent is expected to sign a pro contract in the American Hockey League or the East Coast Hockey League.
"I would like to thank all of the coaches, staff, and players at @BGSU_Hockey. I have had a great experience at BG over these last 3 years,” Perrier wrote on Twitter. “My teammates have become family to me and I will miss them as I begin my next step in my career."

Mark Friedman expected to start playing college hockey at Bowling Green last fall.
But a mix-up in his high school transcripts prevented him from joining the Falcons.
The delay ended up helping his development.
And now he's flourishing.
The defenseman was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the third round of last weekend's NHL Draft.
He was the 86th player chosen. The Flyers have four years to sign him, allowing the Toronto native to begin his BG career this fall.
The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder has emerged as a player who can be trusted in all situations, and can skate on the power-play and penalty-killing units.
BG’s Pleger develops into All-American hammer thrower (07-17-14) PDF Print E-mail

Brooke Pleger wasn't happy when her high school track and field coach told her to practice with the team's throwers.
The Bowling Green redshirt junior saw herself as a sprinter at the time - not a thrower of the discus or the shot put.
Now, approximately seven years later, the Saline (Mich.) High School graduate could be an NCAA champion thrower next season.
She's already a two-time All-American in the hammer throw with the Falcons.
The slender but powerfully-built 5-foot-8 Pleger finished third in the NCAA meet last month after a seventh-place finish the previous season.

Blake was selected Monday to be inducted in November.
The Hall of Fame class also includes centers Mike Modano and Peter Forsberg, former Detroit Red Wings goalie Dominik Hasek, coach Pat Burns and referee Bill McCreary.
“The Bowling Green Hockey program is very proud of Rob for this fantastic honor. His accomplishments in the NHL make this decision very fitting,” current Falcon hockey coach Chris Bergeron stated in a news release.
