Gene Cross Leaving UT--and Erik Marschall Story

There are reports Gene Cross has resigned or been fired.  Either way, he is on his way out of Toledo.  I really thought he would get another season, but it may have been obvious to those close to the program that he did not have the makings of a D1 Head Coach.  It will be interesting to see who comes in.  It is actually a very attractive job, with a newish facility and a strong tradition, and nowhere to go but up.

On another note, the paper in Ashland has a hometown boy makes good story about Erik Marschall and the ups and downs of his career at BG...definitely worth a read, especially as it relates to the injuries he fought through to keep playing......

"Oh man, it's been a roller-coaster ride," Marschall, a senior, said of his career at BGSU. "There's been some ups and downs and peaks and valleys. It's been fun, though. It's definitely an experience many people don't get to have and you've got to take it in stride.
