Random thoughts while wishing Bowling Green State University would change its school colors from brown and orange to black and orange:

WRIST SLAP: Mid-American Conference and Time Warner Cable Sports Network officials deserve a slap on the wrist for causing Bowling Green's hockey and men's basketball teams to play at the same time last Saturday.
The starting time for the men's basketball game against Miami was changed from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. to allow the game to be televised by TWCSN.
But the Falcon hockey team already had a home game against Lake Superior at 7:07 that night.
The MAC and TWCSN should be sympathetic to the three conference members - BG, Miami and Western Michigan - which have hockey teams.
It isn't fair to those schools to force their men's basketball and hockey teams to play dueling home games.

Jake Sloat's last two seasons at Bowling Green have been frustrating.
But the senior has remained a positive influence on the Falcon hockey team.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder missed BG's final 40 games last season after breaking his ankle during the team's Canadian exhibition Oct. 7.
This season, Sloat has played in just two games as the Falcons' depth on defense has increased.
Sloat, recruited as a walkon by former head coach Dennis Williams, played regularly his first two seasons. He had two goals and 14 assists in 75 games.
"Every second of my experience here has been great, very positive, and I wouldn't trade it for the world," Sloat said.
Although Sloat isn't guaranteed to play tonight and Saturday against Michigan Tech in the Ice Arena, he still works hard every day in practice.
The Colorado native had an assist and blocked three shots in BG's 6-2 win over Lake Superior last Saturday.

YPSILANTI, Mich. — There were too many negatives for Bowling Green’s men’s basketball team to overcome Wednesday night at Eastern Michigan.
The end result was a 69-57 EMU victory.
‘‘We have to do a better job with the hustle stats,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said.
Eastern Michigan scored 24 points off BG’s 17 turnovers, and the Eagles got 18 offensive rebounds and scored 25 second-change points. EMU also held a 36-22 scoring edge in the paint, a 14-5 advantage on fast-break points, and a 28-2 edge in bench scoring.

ATHENS — Bowling Green took Ohio’s best shot, and came out swinging in the second half on the way to a 78-62 victory in a Mid-American Conference women’s game Thursday.
Ohio trailed by 10 at one point in the first half, but fought back to take a 35-31 lead into the break.
‘‘They played extremely well in the first half,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said about the Bobcats. ‘‘We gave up the most points, and the highest field-goal percentage to date.
‘‘Even though we shot over 50 percent, we found ourselves down four at the half,’’ she added.
Ohio penetrated to the basket, and made  four 3-pointers to key its first-half success.
‘‘There were a lot of things we talked about at halftime,’’ Roos said, including rebounding and free throws.

Bowling Green faces its next most important series of the season this weekend.
The Falcons host Michigan Tech as both teams attempt to improve their position in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
BG is third in the WCHA with 23 points, trailing first-place Ferris State with 28 and second-place Minnesota State with 24. The Falcons have played two more games than Ferris and MSU.
Although Tech is in a three-way tie for seventh in the 10-team league with 16 points, it only trails fourth-place Alaska-Anchorage by five points.
The top eight teams in the league qualify for the playoffs, with the first four hosting first-round series.
"This is the time of the year where preparation gets old for the guys because it's fairly consistent," BG coach Chris Bergeron said. "They know what to expect each day. You have to really rely on your older guys that they're staying upbeat and positive for practice."
The Falcons are 5-1-1 in their last seven games overall and 5-1-2 in their last eight league games.
"What we're preparing for is a huge series against a team that is really, really good," Bergeron said.
