Flashes from Gordon: Taking an occasional recruiting risk is fine (01-03-14) PDF Print E-mail

Random thoughts with only 51 days until the Daytona 500:

RECRUITING: Falcon hockey coach Chris Bergeron has been criticized for Bowling Green's recruiting of Dajon Mingo.
But the recruiting of Mingo isn't a big deal - even though he was known to be an academic risk during the recruiting process.
There's nothing wrong with taking a chance on a recruit from time to time under the right circumstances.
The redshirt-sophomore recently was declared academically ineligible for the rest of the season. He's expected to return to BG for the spring semester in an effort to regain his eligibility for next season.
Mingo definitely has helped the Falcons on the ice, thanks to his skating and offensive skills.
And if BG didn't recruit him, another school would have - perhaps one the Falcons' rivals in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.

The non-conference schedule is over, and the new season begins Saturday.
The Bowling Green State University women’s basketball team went 10-2 in the non-conference, but the Mid-American Conference schedule starts Saturday with a home game against Buffalo. Tipoff is at 2 p.m.
‘‘This is when it really counts. This is where we really need to show who we are; keep up the intensity, get down on defense, and start from there,’’ said BG redshirt sophomore Erica Donovan, who leads the team in scoring, averaging 12.6 points per game.
‘‘My dream has always been to get to the NCAA tournament, and I feel we could do that together,’’ Donovan continued. ‘‘We could do that, but not with just one individual person, we can do that as a whole. We’re there, and we have a chance.’’
Jennifer Roos, BG’s second-year head coach pointed out during a team meeting on Wednesday that the team needs to focus on the approximately 50 practices and hopefully 22 or more games remaining, and put the non-conference behind them.

BG controls where it finishes in WCHA (01-03-14) PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green faces a difficult challenge if it hopes to finish first or second in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
The Falcons are tied with Bemidji State for third place in the league with 14 points, eight behind leader Ferris State and four behind second-place Minnesota State.
But Ferris and MSU each have played two fewer games than BG and Bemidji.
BG returns to league play tonight and Saturday when it visits Alabama-Huntsville.
Ferris State leads the league with a 10-0-2 record and 22 points, while Minnesota State is second at 9-3 and 18 points.
"I haven't given that much thought," BG coach Chris Bergeron said of catching Ferris and MSU. "Ferris has put themselves in a great spot and (MSU) is playing great hockey."
The Falcons were 2-3-1 against Ferris and MSU, and don't play either team during the second half.
Five of the six games were decided by one goal, with four going into overtime.

While Bowling Green made a valiant try in the second half, the Falcons could not recover from another slow start.
Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne erased a 2-0 deficit with a 9-0 run and never trailed again in a 65-60 win over the BG men Thursday at the Stroh Center.  PHOTO GALLERY
‘‘It’s definitely frustrating, especially when you know you can win the game,’’ said BG’s Richaun Holmes, who finished with 16 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks. ‘‘We know in the back of our minds that we have to play every game from start to finish, like we (did) in the second half.’’
After trailing 34-21 at the half, the Falcons were able to pull to within 44-43 with 10:43 left in the game. And BG was within 53-51 with 4:56 left to play.
