When Urban Meyer took over the Bowling Green football team in 20011 2001, the program was in such a dark place they were willing to roll the dice on a positional coach from Notre Dame with zero head coaching experience. In 2014, it doesn't look like much of a risk anymore.

There have been some off-years since Urban Meyer left for Utah, but it appears BGSU is likely to repeat as MAC champions:

Think that should say, "When Urban Meyer's reanimated corpse took over the Bowling Green football team in 20011". This of course, was right after Nick Saban's reanimated corpse became king of Alabama.

Let me first say I do think they have the talent to be MAC Champs. However, the new coaching regime has made a lot of changes that may not be beneficial, most likely long term. Clawson was an extremely disciplined HC and Babers has come in and is more relaxed. Most of the players I know said it is great for the upperclassmen, but they are pretty concerned for the younger guys.

Before anyone asks, yes, I am a current student at BGSU and yes I know many players due to my major.
