Called the "total package," Dino Babers was introduced this morning as the 18th head football coach at Bowling Green State University. WATCH VIDEO
‘’He has the skills and values required to sustain a solid program, and insure that we make a great team even better,’’ said Chris Kingston, BG’s athletics director, who added that Babers was his first choice for the job.
Babers, who was the head coach at Eastern Illinois for the last two years, replaces Dave Clawson. Clawson coached the Falcons for five years, before being named head coach at Wake Forest earlier this month.
The history and tradition of Bowling Green football, and the rich recruiting area in Ohio, were positives for Babers.
“The opportunity to recruit high school athletes from this state is unmatched,’’ Babers said. “You can name four or five states with just home-grown football players, and this is one of those states.
“To have that rich area so close to the university, and to be able to interact with those high school coaches …. gives you a great opportunity to be successful,” Babers added.

Flashes from Gordon: BGSU baseball gets permanent locker room (12-19-13) PDF Print E-mail

Random thoughts while hoping Jim Schwartz won't return as the head coach of the Detroit Lions, even though it probably won't make a difference, given the team's frustrating history:

FINALLY: The Bowling Green Falcon baseball team recently learned it'll have its own permanent locker room starting this season in the Ice Arena, across from Steller Field.
The Falcons have been using a locker room in the arena for years, but it wasn't their own and they often had to give up the room when scheduling conflicts arose.
Having their own locker room is a small but important step forward in helping BG recruit quality players.
The Falcons were the only team in the Mid-American Conference that didn't have its own locker room, and were probably one of only a handful of teams nation-wide that didn't have their own locker room.
Even though BG coach Danny Schmitz and his staff have had one of the best programs in the MAC, their program was being treated like a 179th-class citizen.

Dino Babers is the new head football coach at Bowling Green State University. The announcement was made this afternoon, and a press conference is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday. “We are so proud to have Dino and his family join Bowling Green State University,” BG athletics driector Chris Kingston said. “Dino brings with him an incredible resume of successful experiences that absolutely fit the Falcon football program. He is a proven winner who is in the business of developing young men who desire success on the field, in the classroom and in the community. His ability to maximize talent through skill development is unmatched.”
Babers, 52, was the head coach at Eastern Illinois of the Ohio Valley Conference the last two seasons.

Ouellet finishing strong for Falcons (12-19-13) PDF Print E-mail

It's one position change that didn't work out, and Bowling Green is a better football team because it didn't.
During his redshirt freshman season, the Falcon coaches decided to try Ted Ouellet on the offensive line because of some injuries there.
''I was about 255 (pounds) at the time, coming off knee surgery, and I was not very good at it,'' said Ouellet, who is now a fifth-year senior.
The move to offense lasted about a month. Then Ouellet went back to the defensive line, and that has paid off in a big way.
Despite battling injuries for his college career, Ouellet was a third-team All-Mid-American Conference pick last season, and a second-team all-conference selection this season.
''If there was a representative of what BG toughness is, it's Ted Ouellet,'' said Adam Scheier, BG's interim head coach. ''He's a brawler; he's a fighter, with a great work ethic, and a great motor.

Falcon icers .500 at midway point of season (12-18-13) PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green's hockey team entered the season with high expectations.
Now that Falcons are at the midway point of the season, they're still in a good spot in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
But it's been a difficult first half for the Falcons, who have survived three major injuries, a difficult schedule, five long road trips and ineffective play from some key veterans.
"If you would have said to me on Sept. 1 that we would be .500 with all of those things, and those are things all teams have to deal with, I probably would have taken it," BG coach Chris Bergeron said.
BG is 8-8-4 overall and 6-6-2 in the WCHA, good for a tie with Bemidji State for third place in the 10-team league.
The Falcons and Bemidji State each have 14 points to trail Ferris State with 22 points and Minnesota State with 18. Ferris and MSU each have played two fewer games.
