Found June 24, 2013 on Crystal Ball Run:
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. Their defensive prowess starts with their pass-rush. The Falcons recorded 38 sacks in 2012, which is tied for 11th nationally. Bowling Green Sports Information Director Dave Meyer mistakenly volunteered to be the first sack of the 2013 season. Redshirt junior Ted Ouellet, who accounted for 35 tackles and three sacks in 2012, got to do the honors. Meyer got crunched into a foam pad, got the wind knocked out of him, but was fine.

Video of the Day: Bowling Green SID Gets BUNDLED

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...
