Fannon's Falcons undergo dramatic turnaround

BOWLING GREEN — As one of his first tasks upon meeting his new team, Matt Fannon’s players asked him to tell a joke.

The Bowling Green women’s soccer team wanted to see if its new coach had a sense of humor, and he did. He obliged with the joke.

During the lead up to last season, the Falcons were certain Fannon was telling them another one. After evaluating BG’s roster, the coaching staff decided to play a 3-4-3, a hyper-aggressive formation that demands very specific personnel and an understanding between players that can take years to obtain.
