OK genius. Where would WMU go if they left the MAC? You got really deep pockets to finance a move to a 'better' conference? You forget that a conference has to WANT a new member, there needs to be a desire to add them, that they bring something to the new conference. I don't see any of them lining up for WMU or ANY MAC school. Maybe Buffalo.

As for PJ, I have stayed out of the back and forth because I'm not invested in him and or his success at a B1G school. He did great things at WMU in his short tenure, then moved onward and upward. He gone. Watching yesterday, I saw a well coached team that believed it would win and played lights out, which reminded me of our teams under PJ. They're legit.

History. Gone. Wish him well but no longer care.
Love him, hate him. Lester is our coach now. I am a Bronco. not a P1G 04-chairshot

Aren't you an MSU fan too lol

Lifelong (since 1966) MSU fan until the Nassar debacle. Divorced the Lions for lifelong incompetence and Sparty for institutional ineptitude.

Good on you.

It's an over-hyped, expensive, pile of non-sense. It's NFL 2.0. Go to Walmart, buy a Michigan t-shirt, and you're now one of them.

WMU is what college football was meant to be: students and alumni. I travel from Ann Arbor to Kalamazoo for an hour and a half for that experience. Fleck was able to bring our program to the heights of D-1 showing what we capable of -- I can only hope Lester can do the same...

100% spot on!

I love the midmajor chip on my shoulder, and wouldn't change my WMU degree, or my rooting interest for anything. The opportunity to play and potentially beat P5 schools is priceless; particularly against UM and MSU.

I would much rather experience a game at Waldo than at any of the P5 venues. I am glad my kids attended midmajors too. Both of them had the option to go to UM, and neither had any interest at all. I brainwashed them well.

I agree there's a lot of things that make being a fan of a G5/"mid-major" special and unique.


I always root for the G5/"mid-majors" and root against the P5, no exceptions.
