And in 2017, the Falcons return a sophomore passer with 2,000 yards to his name, a prolific No.
1 receiver, an all-conference center, and one of the most experienced secondaries in the country.
When I’m confused by a hire, I’m more quick to judge it.
The entire Sports Information staff came to Michigan Stadium to participate in the fun brought on by the BGSU v.
Michigan football game, but one daring soul fought through the crowds of Maize and Blue to get field-side and gain this video of the intense atmosphere provided by The Big House and its occupants.
Still, BGSU’s choice to replace Babers felt a little bit strange.
Before his BGSU hire, Jinks’ entire résumé had formed inside the state of Texas.
The Ohio State, MTSU, and Memphis losses, however, came in the first month.
In October, humiliating defeats became reasonably competitive losses. After tight losses to three MAC bowl teams (EMU, Ohio, Toledo) and brief steps backwards against Miami and NIU, Bowling Green finished the year beating Akron by 10, Kent State by 35, and Buffalo by eight.They welcome the spoils of what was, per the 247Sports Composite, the second-best recruiting class in the MAC. For a while last year, it looked like a decision was being reached. It wasn’t that the Falcons got thumped by Ohio State, MTSU, and Memphis and barely beat FCS North Dakota.Bowling Green’s win total fell by six in 2016, and the jury is still out on Jinks. It was that, against those FBS opponents, they didn’t belong on the same field.Biggest question mark: The pass defense should improve after a miserable fall, but will it do so enough to offset regression in run defense? didn’t hire three power conference coaches (including one of the two best current coaches in college football) in this century; Bowling Green did.Biggest 2017 game: The trip to Miami (Ohio) on Oct. When you have a track record like that, you get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to replacement hires.An offense that averaged 6.7 yards per play in 2015 averaged 4 against those three FBS opponents, and that was with nearly half of each game coming against backups.
