Double Coverage Football:
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 up this week to take one hit from DT Ted Ouellet and prove he's one of the three toughest SIDs in the country (behind Jason Southard and Brian Kelley). Buckle your chinstraps:
Hey, at least he hung on to the ball.
PS: "Is Ted ok?" was the cockiest, funniest thing he could've possibly said after getting absolutely demolished by a teenager. Five bonus points.

Now one of the nation's premiere head coaches, Urban Meyer almost never accepted what wound up being his big break at Bowling Green.
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.
