What You Need To Know About The Bowling Green Offense
– The offense wasn’t good enough. It hasn’t been good enough over the last few seasons to offset the miserable defense, but there’s a whole lot of hope for a big explosion, at least with the passing game.
Jarret Doege appears ready to rise up and rock as the starting quarterback – building off a strong end to last year, and Scott Miller and six of the top seven receivers are back. It was a way-young corps last season that should spring up.
– The offensive line didn’t quite get the job done. The pass protection was spotty, and the consistency wasn’t there. Three starters return, but the left side needs to be replaced. There’s decent size, and now the depth is a bit better developed after going young in a few spots.
– Along for the ride in too many games, the running attack – which was solid at times – has to be steadier despite the loss of leading rusher Josh Cleveland. Andrew Clair averaged almost seven yards per carry as a freshman, and he can catch, too.
Biggest Key To The Bowling Green Offense
Start moving the chains. The offense either needs to be high-flying and put the points up on the board in bunches, or else it needs to keep the defense off the field by going on better drives. The Falcons struggled way too much on third downs, had one of the worst offenses in the league at getting first downs, and the O in all had the ball for just over 27 minutes a game.
