Carrying the Torch..........?
more observations, quips, and comments

OVERHEARD OUTSIDE THE INTERVIEWING/INTERROGATION ROOM
We don't want you to actually do anything. There are others who are really in charge.
You won't have to make any major decisions, that will be taken care of by others.
Just act like your in charge.
There are almost invisible strings attached, and they are really in charge.
We think it's called an Oligarchy.

RESIST CHANGE
Change is dangerous. You might "mess up".
People might be held responsible, though unlikely.
That's why we have RUBBER STAMP MANAGEMENT by Boards and Committees .
"They" can't hang everyone.
However, see Murder on the Orient Express.
Avoid attracting attention. Go on trips.

APPLY THE GOLDEN RULE
Those with the power, control the gold, and really rule.

CHANGE IS COMING !
So they stood by the side of the road and waited for it to arrive.
It was in the form of continued Regression.

WORK WITH US? ARE YOU KIDDING !
It's work for us.
We're the smart players here !
After reading the "requirements" for watch parties,
who would want to get involved. Attitude Revealed !

There have been over 3000 visits to this thread since our last posting.

What do you think ?
Is anybody out there thinking ?

"AND NOW, FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT",
and on a more positive note.............

It is often said, that Sports is a metaphor on life.
Since Head Football Coach Fleck and the Assistant Football Coaches, have excelled
at managing the WMU Football Program, to the recently attained ELETE and Lofty
levels of achievement, LIFE IS GOOD !

Setting goals, short term, mid range, and Long term for the program/team success,
and providing a culture to achieve those goals provides direction.

Setting player goals, with each team member for individual players contribution
the Teams overall success, through individual goal achievement is paramount.

Game Management Planning, Game Strategies and Adjustments, and Attention
to Details during the games, reflect the comprehensive nature and tremendous
abilities of Coach Fleck and the entire Football Coaching Staff.

The Recruiting and Football Team Promotional Activities and Interviews,
only enhance the National Visibility, Awareness, and Prominence of
Western Michigan University.

Finally, continuing to promote Kalamazoo as a wonderful Community and College Town,
also lends itself to the positive image of Western Michigan University as an ideal
place to attend college.

Management (Coaching) by Objectives (Goals), works every time.

Perhaps, the FOOTBALL DEPARTMENT could be hired to run a WMU Alumni Association.

Go Broncos !
Row the Boat !

RE: Alumni Association.
I'm sensing the thread is about some sort of angst around the idea of loss.

If someone does have a good grasp on the thread, could you please state that like in a short paragraph with an introductory sentence, a short body, and a conclusion?

Please do NOT end the paragraph with a transition sentence or a question. Just say the point so people can have a clue. I'm hoping there is some point where healing could begin.

Thanks.

Sincerely,

Honest Ernest (Dirty's alter ego)

Thank You, for Your Support !
and views, and other comments.

As one of the older posters on this board, I've found my Twenty Credit Hours of English,
at Western Michigan University has served me well over many decades.
(I remember V-J Day. Do You ?)

Currently, judging by the fact that there are apparently only two posters that are mesmerized
by the last posting, I suggest a re-reading, and some reflective thinking of the entire text.
(Two viewers, divided by over one-thousand total viewings, equals results greater than .998!
Not a bad batting average)

Since, I'm not really doing this for a Grade, I think I'm allowed a little Literary License.
It was a declaratory statement, not a question.

However, like most participants posting on Bronco Stampede, we are all very excited by the
success and national notoriety of the Western Michigan University Football Team, and made
an effort to express our supportive observations.

Even after consuming a large amount of Pharmaceuticals daily, I'm still quite capable of competing
at a High Level, given my CABGx4, and other age related maladies.

And,
THE HITS KEEP ON COMING !

GO BRONCOS !

ROW THE BOAT !

Bobby Layne Lives !

ON TO DALLAS !

RE: Alumni Association.
If I'm interpreting this correctly, this post revolves mainly around the daily ingestion of pharmaceuticals.

I can support that. Especially the HITS KEEP ON COMING part.

Probably those who can still remember Bobby Layne, despite early onset, are growing fewer.

Love to all Bronco Nation Alums. Fight on. Row the Boat. Beat Wiskey.

THE EQUATION
for success.........

Taking a somewhat analytical approach to our new FB Situation, it's
hopefully just a matter of plugging in a few missing elements, to continue
new found success, of the FB Program.

1. Continuing Upscale Recruiting within Michigan, the Region, and Nationally
2. Continuing to recognize the Value of promoting the Kalamazoo Community
3. Scheduling and playing major school competition
4. Creating strategies for increased student participation and involvement
5. Creating strategies for increased Alumni participation and Involvement
6. Creating strategies for increased Public participation and Involvement
7. Establishing methods for evaluating and measuring effectiveness of
participation and involvement programs for Students, Alumni, and the Public
8. Accepting the possibility, that things may have changed for the better
9. Realizing a Provincial Mind Set, still exists within many WMU principals
(West Michigan is not the Center of the Universe)
10. Thinking Big ! Keep on the "always striving for improvement schedule" ! MBO

Perhaps, this is an oversimplification, but whatever works.

A new element is the HC and Staff.
Of prominent importance, it is only one part of the equation.
There is no reason to believe that Coach Lester and staff's SYSTEM,
will be any less successful than the last system.
Also, there's no reason to believe that the last system will succeed
(or not succeed) anywhere else.

On another note, apparently a WMU staff member was interviewed during
the MAC Championship Game at Ford Field, and commented on the
GREAT TURNOUT by WMU Fans, saying that there are more WMU Alumni in Southeastern Michigan,
than in Western Michigan.
Soooo, could someone create a strategy to engage the Loyal WMU Alumni in Southeastern Michigan
beyond huddling in Bars (many of us are beyond that), and provide us with guest speakers and
other information sharers, in more upscale venues.
Perhaps, the new FB Coach and Staff could participate.

We suspect that the former FB Coach was not allowed to address the Loyal WMU Alumni in SE Michigan,
even though a visit presentation was promised at least three times.

I'm sure, that will return more benefits/return on investment, than the Latest World Tour by the Prez.
This guy sure takes a lot of paid vacations.

If you expect Alumni to invest in WMU, it's a good thing to invest in your Alumni.
Self Promotion doesn't count for much.

BTW, how about a Student and Student Athlete Recruiting Film/DVD, narrated by WMU Alumns,
"Mr. Pure Michigan", (Tim Allen)
