Falcons not dwellling on loss, want to move on to MAC play

It’s a new week for the BG football team. That is the case every Monday, but yesterday it was more of a theme.

While the Falcons felt the wrath of a top 10 football team Saturday, they would like to focus on the rest of their schedule, all conference games.

“We just have to take what happened this week and learn from it,” said wide receiver Corey Partridge.

The loss wasn’t necessarily reflective of the team’s progress through its first four games in which they went 3-1, their only loss coming to Michigan State 28-17.

Now that they’re impl`ementing their game plan for the Miami game Saturday, the Falcons are ready to look forward and try and reach their goal of a Mid-American Conference Championship.

Despite a long trip over the weekend, defensive coordinator Mike Ward was already hard at work as early as 8 a.m. yesterday said defensive end Sean O’Drobinak.

“He’s already got a great game plan,” he added.

The Falcons’ goal every year is to win the MAC Championship, something they have not done since 1992.

“We’re ready to go. We’re full-steam ahead,” Partridge said. “This is definitely what we’ve been waiting for – the MAC schedule.

“We want to get that MAC Championship and Miami is a good place to start.”

The Falcons won’t forget the brutal loss, they’ll use it as a reference point and try to improve from what they saw.

“You don’t pretend it didn’t happen,” said BG coach Gregg Brandon. “We approach it just like any game.”


Tyler Sheehan had the worst game of his young career Saturday but his teammates are confident that it was merely an abberation. Sheehan’s five interceptions were a career high.

“Tyler might have just been trying to make plays out there,” Partridge said. “That’s what he is, he’s a playmaker.”

Sheehan had proven that through four games with 10 touchdowns and a 66 percent completion rate.

“Sometimes it works for you and sometimes it doesn’t and he ended up on the wrong side of it.”

Sheehan is in good spirits this week though. Partridge sat next to him on the ride home and said the sophomore was impressive in the way he handled the situation.

“Tyler is a very headstrong person,” Partridge said. “Everybody has a bad game.

“He’s handled it pretty well.”

Sheehan now has 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions this season. His completion percentage is still more than 66 and he is averaging 315 yards per game.

BG now has six receivers with double-digit catches after Saturday’s game.


The Falcons offense won’t change much from the first five games of 2007.

That means the pass-happy offense won’t stray far from the norm. Brandon did say that he may run more against the conference.

“A lot of the games, Michigan State, Minnesota, Boston College, we weren’t working on running the football,” Brandon said. “We thought our best chances to win the game were to throw the ball 50 to 60 times.”

The conference foes might see more run plays, that may depend on whether or not the Falcons team average of 3.3 yards per carry improves.

“We have a few wrinkles here and there,” Brandon said. “We are who we are right now. Hopefully we can rush the ball better.”
