There is no question that the transition from the Dave Clawson-era of Bowling Green football to the Dino Babers-era will take some time and patience.
An entirely different offensive philosophy from Babers meant that the returning Falcons had to work quickly to learn the new system.
Babers and the rest of his staff saw their most updated body of work Saturday morning in the team’s first scrimmage of spring practice. It was BG’s first outside practice of the spring session.
“It was great to have the space and to get to work in the Doyt for the very first time,” Babers said.
“It’s been a long haul, and the weather has been really rough this year, but it was fantastic to get outside for the very first time. I think the guys really appreciated it,'' he said.
Aside from the players and Babers being excited to get outside, what stood out most was the offensive tempo.
The Falcons ran 120 plays in about 1½ hours, which is still slow by Babers’ standards. “That’s behind pace for us,” he said. The displeasure with the speed became evident when Babers shouted to the sidelines during a team huddle asking what was taking so long.
“We were not Falcon Fast today,” he said. “… We’ve got to get the team to speed up and we’ve got to get the officials to move a little faster and everything will be great.”

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Bowling Green is hoping this season’s appearance in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association Final Five is the first of many.
And the next time, they’re hoping to play better.
The Falcons weren’t sharp Friday in a 4-0 loss to 15th-ranked Minnesota State.
“We put ourselves in a situation where we were competing for a championship, and we didn’t play well,” said BG coach Chris Bergeron, who finished his fourth season.
“The more often we’re in these situations, the more lessons we’re going to learn and the better we’re going to play as we move forward. But … the expectations (are) to get in these games and get in these situations every year.”
The Falcons finished 18-15-6 overall and tied for third in the league with a 13-11-4 record.
But the season was full of inconsistency. BG had to win its last five games to earn home ice for the WCHA quarterfinals.
The Falcons often played well for at least 40 minutes in many of their games, but didn’t play consistently well throughout the season.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Bowling Green’s hockey team had played consistently well during its last four games.
But the Falcons had little going for them Friday.
They didn’t play well offensively or defensively en route to a 4-0 loss to 15th-ranked Minnesota State in the semifinals of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association Final Five at Van Andel Arena.  BOX SCORE WCHA SCORES
Cole Huggins made 36 saves to lead a solid defensive effort by the Mavericks, who scored twice in each of the final two periods.
Each team had 36 shots on goal, but MSU held the upper hand most of the game to advance to Saturday’s championship game against No. 4 Ferris State (28-9-3), a 5-4 overtime winner over Alaska Anchorage in Friday’s other semifinal.
“Just not sharp, not what we had been the last four games,” BG coach Chris Bergeron said.
