First serve between #6 WMU and #1 Miami is at 4:00 pm. The match will be broadcast on ESPN 3 from Millet Hall on the campus of Miami University!

The Broncos are playing loose, having fun and enjoying this run. They are so fun to watch. The bench dances during timeouts and challenge reviews. The other day they had a game of leap frog during a time out. The more fun they have their opponents actually begin to tighten up even more.

Today's match is a tall task to come out on the victorious side. Miami is a solid team. With that said, there is only one thing left to say...

GO BRONCOS!!!!!

I watched much of the match last night, but every time I started to watch we started to play poorly, so I took one for the team and stopped watching, with just occasional check ins so I knew the score.

This is a big day for bronco sports, with the soccer team having its first game in the NCAA tournament. Hope it is a good day.

Would be nice if we weren't playing the game on Miami's home court. But I think Miami earned that right.

I made a mistake on the start time, but have since fixed it. Start time is 4:30.

Miami will be a tough out in the NCAA tournament. Being fundamentally sound and not beating yourself is important this time of year and it has both factors in its favor.

Miami was too strong for Western. Disappointing 3-0 loss.

If you look at Miami's roster they have plenty of Michigan talent, including several girls from Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids. Are we getting out-recruited in our own backyard?

Yes. It's been going on for a while. Girls from the area, Battle Creek included, have been enticed away to other programs like Virginia Tech and Michigan State in recent years. Chicagoland and northern Indiana is a decent recruiting base, but the local talent that's good enough will go elsewhere to better programs with better prospects for success.
