Toledo fans are doing BG fans a favor by doing their logical work for them.

They have constructed an argument concluding that BG's defense will be much improved this year.

Here's how the argument goes.

1st premise: A mass of Toledo fans are claiming that the Rockets' defense will be much improved this year because they have a new defensive coordinator.

2nd premise: Bowling Green also has a new defensive coordinator.

Conclusion: Toledo fans are also claiming that Bowling Green's defense will be much improved this year.

For those who want to get picky, both the premises and the logic of this argument may be suspect.

But according to the reasoning of Toledo fans, the conclusion appears to be rock solid.

Thank you Rocket fans for believing in BG!! :wave: :wave:

Silly little post. You are leaving out a key to the equation: YOU didn't start from LOU WEST.

SFF, your ability to think is very bad.

First off we just don't have a new DC.......we have a guy that has improved the defense in his first year of every place he has gone. Why should it be different at Toledo? I mean we are talking EMU and LaTech as two of the defenses he improved.


Second, Toledo returns all but 3 starters on defense. Everyone else on the defensive 2-deep roster from last season returns and many of them were freshmen or first year playing sophomores last year and will definitely have some experience which tends to make players better. BG is not in the same case.


That said, it is possible for BG's defense to be better this year. After all when you look at scoring defense there really wasn't much of a difference between UT and BG last year, if you take out the two 63 point games to start the season Toledo gave up 25.2ppg and BG gave up 23.5ppg.

Finally, who really cares?

How long before Rocket fans moan and groan, crying:

"The Rose has lost its bloom!"

Indeed, this might be a headline we'll read late this season in The Blade.

It might also be heard reverberating throughout the Doyt in the 4th Quarter, maybe even the 3rd Quarter.

No, here's how the arguement goes:

1. Toledo overinflates game balls, because everyone knows that overinflating balls wins key games.

2. BG plans to overinflate their game balls.

Conclusion: BG still loses key games because Omar can't handle overinflated balls, while Toledo wins because Bruce can.

Question - how much credit should Tim Rose get if you are returning 19 of 22 from your defensive two deep, when the main excuse for last year was youth?

I don't know. I just know his track record everywhere he has gone. I really only care about our defense being improved and winning games. Whether it is because of this guy or these players doesn't matter if we do improve and win.
