Men's basketball coach Dan Dakich just wanted to turn Bowling Green's luck inside out. Instead, he started a new fashion trend. After his team had lost four straight games, including an 81-57 rout by Kent University, Dakich stunned everyone when he arrived on the floor for a home game against Western Michigan on Jan. 31 with his buttoned-up sport coat on backward.
