When Anthon Samuel decided not to return to Bowling Green after the Military Bowl last December, the Falcons’ coaching staff was in an quandary about the running back position.
The 2013 recruiting class was filled with potential replacements for Samuel, who rushed for 1,842 yards and 16 touchdowns in his two seasons with the Falcons.
However, Bowling Green needed a running back to get through spring drills.
Enter Travis Greene, a high school teammate of Samuel’s, who was a wide receiver with the Falcons.
Greene proved to be much more than spring drills fodder.
The 5-foot-10, 181 pound, redshirt sophomore, exploded for the Falcons this season, rushing for a school-record 1,555 yards with 11 touchdowns. He rushed for 100 or yards more in nine games, also a school record.

It’s been a while since the Bowling Green State University women’s basketball team has played a game.
In fact, Bowling Green had the head football coach leave to take a similar job at Wake Forest, and hired a new coach in fewer days than the time between games for the Falcon women.  PHOTO GALLERY
However, the layoff didn’t hurt the Falcons who rolled past UMass, 86-46, Thursday afternoon in the Stroh Center. The game was postponed from Sunday because of inclement weather.
‘‘We haven’t played in 11 days ... There were a lot of moving pieces going on,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘They had to get permission from the president’s office to play during exams. We had to get permission from professors to get four exams moved for our kids.
‘‘I was really pleased with our effort,’’ she added. ‘‘I was concerned about the rust. I was concerned with us being in the middle of exams, and how we would be focused.’’

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.

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.

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.
