Bowling Green Uses Third Quarter Surge to Beat Idaho, 21-13

BOWLING GREEN, OHIO — The Bowling Green Falcons scored two touchdowns in 1:15 of the third quarter to break open a close game and propel the Falcons to a 21-13 home opening win over Idaho. It was business as usual for Coach Dave Clawson, who raised his record in Doyt L. Perry Stadium openers to 4-0. The Falcons are now 1-1, following a solid effort in a loss to Florida last week, and the Vandals fell to 0-2.

Dominique Blackman, held out of the Vandals’ week one 20-3 loss to Eastern Washington, passed for 352 yards on 30 of 37 passes, but the Falcon defense — tackle Chris Jones would finish with 2.5 tackles for a loss — stiffened in the red zone, forcing Idaho to settle for three field goal attempts, missing one.

The two teams combined for 635 yards passing — Bowling Green’s Matt Schilz was 24 of 35 for 283 yards — but only 96 yards rushing, and hurt themselves with 22 penalties for 172 yards.

The Falcons scored on their second possession of the game, going 67 yards in five plays. Schilz connected on a 42 yard pass to a double-covered Shaun Joplin on first down to the Vandals’ 25, and four plays later, Anthon Samuel bounced off the middle of the line and scooted in from four yards out. Samuel set a Falcon freshman record last year with 844 yards rushing. Joplin finished with seven catches for 117 yards.

The Vandals’ deepest advance in the first half was their own 41 until late in the second quarter. They went 77 yards in 11 plays to get on the board on a 20 yard Trey Farquhar field goal with 1:48 left. The Falcons’ decision not to settle for a 7-3 lead at the half backfired when Schilz fumbled on his own 32. Farquhar added a 22 yard field goal with :15 left to cut it to 7-6 at intermission. Ryland Ward of Columbus Brookhaven High School forced the field attempt by breaking up Blackman’s third down pass at the Falcons’ 5 yard line.

Farquhar has the second most field goals in Idaho history, but missed a 36 yard attempt on the opening drive of the second half, ending a 12 play drive at the Falcons’ 19.

That’s what kick-started the Falcons’ two-TD outburst. They went 80 yards in nine plays, capped by Samuel’s second TD run, 29 yards on a draw play. Another 37 yards in the drive came on a reception by Chris Gallon on the left sideline.

The Falcons executed the tip drill on the next play, with three defenders batting a Blackman pass before Josh Pettus gathered it in at the Vandals’ 28. Three plays later, Schilz hit Je’Ron Stokes with a short pass over the middle, and Stokes took it in from 15 yards.

The Vandals cut it to 21-13 with 6:22 left in the game, going 78 yards in seven plays, capped off by Blackman’s 16 yard lob to Marquan Major in the left corner of the end zone. The drive was set up by an interception by Solomon Dixon at their own 22. They got the ball back with 3:41 left, but on the first play, Jahrie Level lost the ball after his tenth catch of the game, on a hit by Paul Swan at his own 33.

Petrino rejoins Arkansas football staff

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – University of Arkansas head football coach Bobby Petrino has announced Paul Petrino as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Razorbacks.

Paul Petrino most recently completed his second season as offensive coordinator at Illinois, and has 20 years of collegiate experience and an impressive offensive background, which includes national top-10 rankings in scoring and total offense.

“I am extremely thrilled to have Paul become a member of our staff again,” said UA head coach Bobby Petrino. “Paul has had several options with high level programs the past few days and I’m excited he made the decision to rejoin our program. His experience the last two seasons, blended with our philosophy will give us continuity with our aggressive scheme. Paul has a talented offensive mind and he has had great success every step of his career. His offensive numbers and rankings speak for themselves, and he has always had an incredible ability to develop players.”

Petrino guided an Illini offense that broke school records for total points (423) and points per game (32.54) in 2010 and featured running back Mikel Leshoure, who broke the single-season school rushing record with 1,697 yards. Illinois averaged 42.1 points and 448.9 total yards over the last seven games of the season and notched a 38-14 win over Baylor in the 2010 Texas Bowl.

In 2009 as offensive coordinator at Arkansas, the team averaged 37 points per game, which ranked eighth in the NCAA, while also posting top-15 rankings in passing offense at No. 10 (303.3 ypg) and total offense at No. 14 (439.3 ypg). Razorback quarterback Ryan Mallet was the nation’s sixth-rated passer, averaging 285 yards per contest and throwing 29 touchdowns.

He was the receivers coach in Atlanta after working the four previous years as offensive coordinator and receivers coach at Louisville. Playing for Petrino, Roddy White enjoyed the best season of his pro career with 83 catches for 1,202 yards.

His teams at Louisville averaged 41.1 points per game from 2003-06; 34.6 in `03; 49.8 in `04; 43.3 in `05 and 37.8 in `06. Texas Tech was the only other school to rank in the top 10 nationally in total offense during those years. In 50 games at Louisville, Petrino’s teams went 41-9 and scored 40 or more points 28 times and 60 or more seven times.

Petrino coached three wide receivers who set single-season yardage records at Louisville. Arnold Jackson totaled 1,209 yards in 1999, J.R. Russell broke the record in 2003 with 1,213 yards and Harry Douglas had 1,265 yards in 2006.

In 2006, the Cardinals went 12-1, won the Big East title and finished the year ranked No. 6 in the nation. Louisville was second in the country in total offense (475.3 ypg), seventh in passing (290.0 ypg) and fourth in scoring (37.8 ppg). In 2005, Louisville (9-3) was ninth in the nation in offense (482.1) and third in scoring (43.4 ppg) with six offensive players earning first-team All-Conference honors. Running back Michael Bush led the nation with 24 touchdowns, while receiver Mario Urrutia was second in the nation in yards per catch.

The 2004 team won the Conference USA title, beat No. 10 Boise State in the Liberty Bowl, finished 11-1, finished ranked No. 7 in the nation, and led the nation in total offense (539.0 ypg) and scoring offense (49.8 ppg). The Cardinals set school records for total yards, rushing yards and points in a season (597), also scoring 50-plus points seven times. Russell earned All-Conference honors for the second-straight season after catching 73 passes. He had 75 catches for a school-record 1,213 yards in 2003.

Petrino began his coaching career in 1990-91 as the quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator at his alma mater, Carroll College. He coached at Idaho for the next three years (1992-94), where he tutored receivers, running backs and special teams. As running backs coach, he coached Sherriden May to All-America honors after he led I-AA players with 150 points while rushing for 1,111 yards. Petrino moved to Utah State from 1995-97 as receivers coach and special teams coordinator. In 1995, Aggies’ receiver Kevin Alexander was second in the nation in receptions and third in yards.

In 1998, Petrino went to Louisville for two years in his first stint at the school. In 1998, with brother, Bobby, coaching quarterbacks and Paul coaching receivers, UL set records for points (473), scoring average (39.4), touchdowns, passing yards, passing touchdowns, pass attempts, completions and total offense. In 1998, the Cardinals ranked No. 1 in the nation in passing offense and ranked second in 1999.

WRIGHT STATE AT OHIO STATE: men’s basketball kicks off regular season against in-state rival


Julius Mays talks with media at Monday's Wright State basketball media day (

The Wright State Raiders will be taking that short drive of 60 miles from Fairborn, Ohio to Columbus where they’ll take on the Ohio State Buckeyes tonight at 9:00 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.

Yearly, the Raiders are one of the top teams in the mid-major Horizon League along with Butler, Detroit, Cleveland State and Wisconsin-Milwaukee. But after losing four seniors who led them over the years, N’Gai Evans, Vaughn Duggins, Cooper Land and Troy Tabler, the Raiders are picked seventh this season.

Wright State spent part of the summer touring Italy and are hoping that trip bonded all of the new players they’ll have on the roster. The newcomers include: Brooklyn Bradley, Reggie Arceneaux, John Balwigaire, Jason Cuffee, Kendall Griffin, Ulysses Thomas, Vance Hall, Stephen Gossard, Alex Pritchett, Julius Mays and Tavares Sledge.

The Raiders non-conference schedule will include Kenyon, Jackson State, Florida, North Florida, Charlotte, Air Force, Miami, Cincinnati, Ohio, Idaho, Central Michigan and the annual BracketBusters game.

The Cleveland Indians have selected Akron Aeros first baseman Beau Mills as their Minor League Player of the Week for the week of July 10-16.

This past week, the 24-year-old Mills, hit .588 (10-17) with 5 runs scored, 3 doubles, 2 home runs and 7 RBI’s as he hit safely in all 5 games for the Double-A Aeros while compiling a .667 on-base percentage and a 1.118 slugging percentage (1.785 OPS). He was also named the Eastern League Player of the Week.

Mills, who did not begin the 2011 season until the middle of May after suffering Achilles tendonitis in spring training, is having a good season at .308 (66-218) with 34 runs scored, 16 doubles, a triple, 9 homers, 44 RBI’s in 58 games.
