The ideal day for a punter is warming up before the game and at halftime, celebrating with teammates and singing the alma mater after the game, but never having to punt.
Brian Schmiedebusch, the punter for the Bowling Green State University Falcons, hasn’t had that kind of game so far this season.
But it’s been pretty close. VIDEO
Through 11 games he has had to punt only 36 times.
‘‘It’s awesome. Our offense is moving the ball this year,’’ Schmiedebusch said. ‘‘Most of them (his punts) have come inside the 50, so that means we’re moving the ball down the field, and putting points up on the board.
‘‘The less I have to punt, that means the more games we’re winning; so I’m loving it.’’

Bowling Green’s hockey team has played well at times this season.
But the Falcons need to be sharper on a more consistent basis coach Chris Bergeron said Tuesday.
They’ve been inconsistent this month, losing two-goal leads in three of their last four games.
Most recently, the Falcons struggled Saturday in a 4-3 overtime loss to Minnesota State in the Ice Arena.

CANCUN, Mexico — Sparked by its defense, and with five players scoring in double figures, the Bowling Green State University men’s basketball team rolled past Presbyterian College, 67-45 Tuesday.
‘‘We still have to continue to work on both ends of the floor, but it was definitely a step in the right direction,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said.
The Falcons conclude play in the Cancun Challenge Wednesday against Oral Roberts at 4 p.m. The games are being played at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya.
The Presbyterian Blue Hose made just 15 baskets while shooting 30.6 percent from the field.
‘‘The defense was the difference,’’ Orr said. ‘‘I thought we did a good job on their three best players.’’
Reggie Dillard, William Truss, and Jordan Downing were a combined 11-of-37 from the field for the Blue Hose.
‘‘We were able to turn defense into offense, and convert off turnovers,’’ Orr said. ‘‘We had 18 points off turnovers, and eight fast-break points.’’
The Falcons led from the start, shooting 56.9 percent from the field for the game.
BG scored the first seven points of the game and the Blue Hose did not score a field goal until there was 12:09 remaining in the first half.
Bowling Green continued to get the ball inside, and hit mid-range jumpers to take a 33-19 lead at the half.
Presbyterian scored the first five points of the second half, but the Falcons pushed their lead back to 13, 46-33, on a three-point play from Spencer Parker with 12:57 left in the game.
‘‘It was good to see that we could answer,’’ Orr said.
The Falcons would widen their lead to 24 points, 65-41, with 3:46 left to play. The teams then traded points the rest of the way as the Falcons secured the 22-point win.
Anthony Henderson scored a career-high 17 points, hitting on 7-of-11 hits from the field, for the Falcons.
Also for BG: Cameron Black posted a double-double of 12 points and a career-high 14 rebounds; Parker had 12 points; Richaun Holmes had 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting; and Jehvon Clarke just missed a double-double finishing with 10 points and nine assists.
‘‘We did a better job sharing the ball,’’ Orr said. ‘‘We had 17 assists on 29 baskets.’’
Bowling Green outscored Presbyterian 48-14 in points in the paint
The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Falcons, now 2-3 overall. The Blue Hose are 1-6.
Presbyterian College is located in Clinton, S.C. and its enrollment as of last fall was 1,172 undergraduate students.

Business as usual for BG football (11-27-13) PDF Print E-mail

No one is going to talk about winning one for The Gipper, nor is Vince Lombardi going to suddenly appear to give an inspirational speech.
Instead, it will be business as usual in the Bowling Green State University football locker room Friday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Falcons play Buffalo for the Mid-American Conference East title, a spot in the MAC championship game against Northern Illinois, and a guaranteed berth in a bowl game. Kickoff is at 1:30 p.m..
''I'll say the things I say before most games,'' BG head coach Dave Clawson said about his pregame talk. ''We're playing for a championship, a MAC East championship, and our players know that; our players understand the magnitude of the game.
''This isn't to downplay it, but at the end of the day we have to be focused, and execute the offense, the defense and the special teams,'' he continued. ''In a lot of ways, it's no different than any other game.''

Aaron Mershman has made a quick and easy transition from college football player to college football coach.
Mershman, who was a standout quarterback at Bowling Green High School, is in his first season as a graduate assistant for the Bowling Green State University football program.
''I love what I do,'' Mershman said. ''I'm young, and I've got energy. I love being animated out here. The more animated you are, the more fun you have.''
Mershman had his college football career at Ball State end prematurely due to concussion syndrome. He played both quarterback and tight end/fullback during his career at Ball State, but had to give up football in the spring of 2012.
