Bowling Green sports information director Dave Meyer got exactly what he asked for: to be annihilated by defensive end Ted Ouellet.
Meyer (all 6-foot-1, 190 pounds of him) suited up in full pads and took a brutal hit from the 6-foot-3, 282-pound Ouellet, who recorded three sacks and six tackles for loss last season. Meyer, who has “next to zero athletic ability,” told SBNation that Ouellet wanted to take a 10-yard head start, but the SID would only allow him five yards.
The best part of the video may be that Meyer’s blood type (O-NEG) is written above his facemask, where a player’s last name would usually go. Meyer said he’s still recovering from the hit and thought he broke his arm immediately after. He still has a stiff neck, bruised sternum and bruised arm. But it’s fun to watch.
Check out the hit below.

Teams in the Mid-American Conference are known for their high scoring, Tuesday-Friday games, dramatic finishes and not much defense. Last year, Bowling Green made its defense a priority and went to a bowl game for the first time since 2009 because of it. Their defense wasn’t just good for MAC standards, it was in the top 10 nationally, allowing only 16.8 points per game.
Bowling Green is preparing for the upcoming NCAA football season like hundreds of other teams across the nation, but the Falcons are warming up a bit differently than most other squads. We know this because we highly doubt there are many sports information directors out there who are willing to allow a 280-pound defensive lineman [...]

Video: Sports Info Director gets jacked up
Bowling Green led the resurgent MAC in sacks last year but their defense didn't get as much national exposure or credit as some of the league's high-powered offenses did. SID Dave Meyer's plan to fix that began with either the ballsiest or stupidest viral campaign of the young season: sacrificing himself as the Falcons' "First Sack."
Meyer got all dolled...
