It would be nice if Coach Clawson could win the MAC or at least the MAC East before people have him leaving for greener pastures. BG has shown steady improvement the past few years but has not been able to make the big jump to the top like several other MAC teams have done at various times over the years. I'm starting to wonder if BG will ever be able to win the MAC under Clawson? He doesn't have a great record against Toledo, OU, and Kent either. I guess we came close to getting to the title game this year, but fell short once again. Now we have to wait until next year again for our chance. It will really be disappointing if BG doesn't get a bowl bid this year.

Something to consider: Another coach who left BG without winning a MAC title, never got to a bowl game and had a 1-1 record against Toledo ... Urban Meyer.

Not saying. Just sayin'.

Jerry Palm from CBSSports.com has this list of teams that have accepted bowl invitations ...

Also realized that I should have included Arkansas among the teams looking for new coaches.

I know I'm starting to sound like Chicken Little re: Bowling Green's bowl chances.

But here's a little something else regarding Georgia Tech and its bowl possibilities ...

If you don't want to read the whole story, here's the key element for BG fans ...

On a teleconference Sunday night, coach Paul Johnson said that acting athletic director Paul Griffin told him that Tech will go to a bowl.

True and a good point, but Meyer was only in BG two years. I'm just conflicted about the Clawson years because he seems to be doing things the right way but major sucess is coming slowly. I really want to see BG win the MAC. We seem to be so close but unable to win the big games. Part of the frustraton is seeing how quickly Toledo and Kent have made turnarounds after having some pretty bad years. Apparently, Amstutz and Martin left those programs with a lot of talent while BG had to start over completely. There are several coaching vacancies so Clawson could leave. If he goes, who will come in and take us to the next level? I'm worried now that we may not even get a bowl bid this year. That would be a shame.
