    Worst Falcon Football team i have seen in a long time. This coaching staff doesnt have a clue but thats what you get when you hire a guy who has never been a head coach or coordinator even at the high school level

    Not entirely true. He was a head coach for several years at the HS level and built a bit of a dynasty there. As for taking a chance on a coach who has never been a D1 coordinator, Urban Myer was the wide receivers coach at Notre Dame when we hired him.

    Now, back to hockey. The last time I looked, this was a hockey forum, correct?

    Masters faced a ton of rubber.

    That reminds me of a quote from the Alabama club team goaltender, who went to Twitter and said that "I saw more rubber tonight than a $5 ..." well, you know. I laughed until I cried, and then I think that I retweeted him from @weloveuahhockey.

    Re: BGSU Falcons 2017-18 Season

    The team looked much better last night against the USNTDP than against Wilfrid Laurier. Because the opponent was better?

    I am too inept to think about lines, but which forwards can we expect Tuesday against WMU?
    Baylis (time to start scoring)
    Bednard, S.
    Craggs, L.
    D'Andrea
    Ford (Fr.)
    Johnson (Fr.)
    Kruse (Fr.)
    Letourneau
    McLain (dude, stay out of the box)
    Meier
    Schilling
    Spezia

    Defense: Dalton, McDonald, Musser (Fr.), Pohlkamp, Rauhauser, Smith
    Go Falcons!

    Baylis did a hell of a job on the penalty kill last night. Wells played great against Wilfred Lauer, but seemed to struggle a bit last night.
    As for who will play, I'm not sure about specific games, but I'm willing to bet everybody will see game action this coming week. Exception being Rich, but that's kind of a given seeing as he didn't see any crease time in either exhibition, including warm-ups.

    I thought the line of McLain, Spezia, Kruse was more effective than McLain Spezia, Wright. The concern I have is that Kruse is not an intimidating physical presence out there (listed at 5'9" 155lb) and WMU is a large, physical team. And Wright showed some heavy feet last night.

    And Baylis only had 2 penalties (one was coincidental) which is a positive. We need to stay out of the box on Tuesday.

    That's always part of it. The other part is that the CIS schools are generally even older than WCHA schools and want to goon it up a bit.

    Don't read anything from what penalties were called and what wasn't. I fully expect games from here on out will be called differently.

    Re: BGSU Falcons 2017-18 Season

    We are now 3 games into the regular season and 5 games overall. I've watched the 3 season games and had family members at the two exhibition contests as well. So some early season conclusions can be drawn from the action so far heading into a huge early season match up at home against Mankato.

    1) Forwards- I have been pleasantly surprised by the freshman forwards both individually and as a group. Wright, Kruse, Johnson and Ford. The 4 are all in the top 7 of team scoring leaders. I know its only 3 games in, but that's a pretty impressive start. Letourneau and Spezia have been dangerous, but only have 1 point between them. We have talked at length on here about the need for guys to bury pucks when they get a chance, these two are a prime example, but its early. Overall I have liked our forward play. We seem to be faster overall and we have controlled the better part of the 3 games....once again just need to put the puck in the net.

    2) Defense- The defense has been about as I expected, not much offense outside of Rauhauser, but solid and have done well on the penalty kill as well. Freshman Wells and Musser have both played and have not looked terribly out of place, so we should have little trouble with one of them in the dressed 6 D-men every night. Smith still seems to take the bad penalty at the bad time, but he also seems to be improved in the corners over last year.

    3) Goaltending- He is were there have been a few surprises. I figured Bednard would take the job and run with it as the only returner, but he hasn't. He continues to be plagued by the "soft goal" as he gives up at least one every game. They have proven to be back breakers against both WMU and MSU leading to loses in both games. Freshman Eric Dop meanwhile has played really well in both his exhibition time and the start at home this past Friday. I would expect he will start this Friday against Mankato as well. I doubt Berg is ready to pull the plug on Bednard this early, but you can tell by his interviews the bad goals are starting to get under his skin. I imagine Bednard starts Saturday, but is on a short leash, especially if Dop plays well again on Friday.

    Agree with everything above. I like Kruse on the first line.

    Tough matchup this weekend. A split would be good.
    Go Falcons!

    General question for BG fan base. Is there a reason Bergeron doesn't shake hands with opponents? Or is that just against the mavericks? It seems a little classless but maybe there's a reason so i thought id ask.

    I've never really paid all that much attention. I thought most coaches shake hands with the opposing team's coaches, then watch the remainder of the handshake line. Some players will go out of their way to shake hands with the opposing coach, but I've not noticed many coaches actually participating in the handshake line.

    I have never seen him shake hands with the other teams players.

    Bergeron and staff always shake hands with the opponent's coaching staff after the game. After that handshake he usually waits as the two teams shake hands before heading out with the team to thank the crowd. I have watched him many times shake hands with players after they are through the player's line. Earlier in the year at BG I watched Bergeron have a nice long friendly talk with Minnesota State's coach. I also watched him spend time talking to and wishing Alaska's Justin Woods well after our series. Woods has battled cancer and has returned to play. I don't always see the coaches in the handshake line.

    So we are ranked behind 2-5 Harvard that is 52nd in the PairWise.......LOL! Classic!

    No wonder they went to the PairWise for NCAA tourney seeding.....so many biases in the human polls.
