    2016 SCHEDULE LOOK AHEAD: BOWLING GREEN AT OHIO STATE
    Eric Seger on May 16, 2016 at 8:35a @ericseger33


    They say you should never forget where you came from, otherwise you won't figure out where you're headed. Or something like that.

    Urban Meyer is scheduled to heed some similar thoughts like that throughout training camp and during the first game week of Ohio State's 2016 season. His Buckeyes host Bowling Green, the university that gave the man his first head coaching job, Sept. 3 at Ohio Stadium. Meyer went 17-6 from 2001-02.

    The matchup isn't for another 109 days (depressing, isn't it?), but we thought it wouldn't hurt to start looking ahead at Ohio State's 2016 slate. The Falcons are up first and the remaining 11 opponents on the schedule will follow in the coming weeks.

    Let's get to it.

    BGSU and Tulsa aren't great but they are at least ok Warmups for Oklahoma when it comes to defense prep (Spread offenses)

    It would suck to have to play a Navy type of team with that game looming

    They say you should never forget where you came from, otherwise you won't figure out where you're headed. Or something like that.

    Urban Meyer is scheduled to heed some similar thoughts like that throughout training camp and during the first game week of Ohio State's 2016 season. His Buckeyes host Bowling Green, the university that gave the man his first head coaching job, Sept. 3 at Ohio Stadium. Meyer went 17-6 from 2001-02 as head coach of the Falcons before heading to Utah.

    The matchup isn't for another 109 days (depressing, isn't it?), but we thought it wouldn't hurt to start looking ahead at Ohio State's 2016 slate. The Falcons are up first and the remaining 11 opponents on the schedule will follow in the coming weeks.

    Let's get to it.

    OFFENSE
    If there is one thing Bowling Green can do, it is score. The problem is, the bulk of the personnel that scored the majority of its 591(!) points in 2015 is no longer on roster. By the way, only two teams in the country scored more than the Falcons last year: Baylor and Western Kentucky.

    Quarterback Matt Johnson (4,946 yards, 46 touchdowns, eight interceptions) graduated, as did running back Travis Greene (223 carries, 1,299 yards, 15 touchdowns). Star wide receivers Gehrig Dieter (94 catches, 1,033 yards, 10 touchdowns) and Roger Lewis (85 catches, 1,544 yards, 16 touchdowns) are gone too — Dieter transferred to Alabama and Lewis left for the NFL Draft.

    All-conference guard Alex Huettel also graduated, but the Falcons return four starters on the offensive line. That never hurts, especially for a first-year coach. The unit as a whole lost a ton, but the cupboard isn't bare for Mike Jinks.

    BOTTOM LINE
    Bowling Green faces a significant transition in 2016. With Dino Babers (18-9 in two seasons) now the head coach at Syracuse, Jinks has hefty shoes to fill. His hire is intriguing, considering he rose to prominence coaching high school football in Texas and has never been a college head coach or even a coordinator. But that is Bowling Green's style: It keeps you on your toes.

    The Falcons are still the favorites to win the MAC East, easily the weaker of the two divisions in the conference. A season opener at Ohio Stadium is not for the weary, though, and will certainly be an eye opener for Jinks.

    Bowling Green has plenty of pieces in place to score points but it is hard to envision a scenario where the offense doesn't regress due to the losses of Johnson, Lewis, Dieter and others. That's a ton of talent.

    Still, the Falcons only lost to teams that had at least nine wins a year ago and beat two Big Ten schools in Maryland and Purdue. The 2015 season was terrific for those that inhabit Meyer's old stomping grounds.

    The Falcons will throw the ball around a bunch and test Ohio State's depth and speed in the secondary. If the unit gets hot and strings together some scoring drives, it will be on the Buckeye offense to keep pace.

    Agreed; both are pretty solid.....mid major bowl teams is a great test. Not just that but both teams love to throw it and that's exactly what we need before going into Oklahoma is to give our young secondary a chance to be tested and gel. I don't have worries about the front 7 but the back end obviously has a lot of unknowns, and a lot of those will be 'knowns' after those first two games. All of our OOC games are against bowl teams, I wonder how many P5 teams can say that this year?

    I, like many here, have a soft spot for the MAC and especially Bowling Green. I hope they put up a good show.

    Tulsa though. . . rake them over the coals with no survivors. Let the state of Oklahoma know we're ready.
