Spring football is an opportunity for veterans to solidify things, and for backups and newcomers to make an impression.
In the case of the Bowling Green Falcons, under first-year head coach Dino Babers, it’s also a matter of learning a new system, and maybe even a change in roles.
The Falcons concluded spring drills with a 78-minute scrimmage Saturday that pitted the offense against the defense.
The offense had 434 yards in 137 plays, 370 yards passing and 164 yards rushing. Approximately 110 plays came in a traditional fashion, and the remainder were plays that started at the 20-yard line.
‘‘The thing that I wanted to get out of it, I wanted a hard fought contest with no injuries,’’ Babers said. ‘‘We have one young man headed to the hospital. I’m not going to mention his name right now. Hopefully that will come out negative.
‘‘For us to run 130-something plays and only have one guy go down, with the smacking and the speed that we were operating at, I’m really proud of the conditioning of this football team and where we are headed.’’

Random thoughts while believing every youth baseball/softball parent should have to umpire at least one game behind home plate and one game in the field before being allowed to attend their child's games:

CHANGE: Perceptions of the Bowling Green Falcon hockey program are changing.
The Falcons have steadily improved during their four seasons with Chris Bergeron as head coach.
Before Bergeron, and assistant coaches Barry Schutte and Ty Eigner took over, the Falcon program was one of the worst in the country and was nearly eliminated for budget reasons by the school.
This season, BG was 18-15-6 overall and tied for third in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association with a 13-11-4 record - despite a season filled with inconsistent play, injuries and off-ice distractions.
"The word is getting out about what our program is doing," Bergeron said. "We're hearing that a lot, that this place is better than what I expected it to be. What made you expect it not to be great? Perception. Not reality, but perception."

Bowling Green’s women’s basketball team added to its legacy with 30 victories, a Mid-American Conference regular-season title, and a deep run in the WNIT.
The season ended Monday night with a 55-50 loss to Rutgers. Rutgers has advanced to play for the WNIT championship today at University of Texas-El Paso.
The three-player senior class — Alexis Rogers, Jillian Halfhill and Jill Stein — provided the spark and leadership for the Falcons all season. They are the ninth senior class in school history, and eighth straight, to be a part of at least 100 career victories.
‘‘The last three weeks, our seniors have really had a sense of urgency, and have also had a sense of ownership to this program,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘Those three have been a mainstay for us.
‘‘This group right here, this ’13-14 women’s basketball team with those three kids as seniors ... they are in the record book,’’ she added.

Bowling Green needs better goaltending next season, if the team is going to win a league championship, Falcon hockey coach Chris Bergeron said.
The Falcons' .903 save percentage overall this season was only good for a three-way tie for fifth in the 10-team Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
BG had a .906 save percentage in league play, only sixth-best in the league.
The Falcons tied for third in the league with 13-10-4 record, but finished 11 points behind Ferris State and 10 points behind Michigan Tech.
"We're not going to win championships with just OK to good goaltending, and that's where we're at right now," Bergeron said. "Whoever is getting the job done at a high level is going to play. If that's a two-man situation, so be it."
Sophomore Tommy Burke had a 2.43 goals-against average and a .912 save mark in 28 games this season, while freshman Tomas Sholl had a 2.68 goals-against and an .896 save mark in 12 games.
