Western Over Michigan!

September 3, 2009

wmu football

When the black and gold Adidas cleats from Western Michigan University’s football team stampedes the Big House this Saturday, it’s going to be all business. Nothing personal, just business.

The Broncos of WMU have a legitimate shot of defeating the Michigan Wolverines. Retweet that, put it in your facebook status, or you may want to post it up on Myspace for old time’s sake. As a matter of fact, put my name next to it as the trusted source.

Here are a few reasons why:

With No. 3 dropping back delivering crisp passes, good things always happen. The 6-5, 234 pound assassin is a force to THillerbe reckoned with. Last season he started all 13 games and broke WMU single-season records for passing attempts (522), completions (339), yards (3,725) and touchdowns (36). He also led the MAC in five of six major passing categories (attempts, completions, yards, yards per game, and touchdowns). Of course he had the pleasure of having Flint native Jamarko Simmons catching anything in his vicinity, but he still had to deliver. Hiller can pick the Wolverines apart with his keen vision and smart tactics. He’s also one of 38 quarterbacks named to the 2009-10 Manning Award Watch List announced by the Allstate Sugar Bowl. The list includes 38 of the top quarterbacks in the nation heading into the 2009 season.

  • WMU is hungrier!

The Broncos are looking for their first win over the Wolverines in school history! Ok so Michigan does hold a dominant 4-0 advantage over the Brown and Gold, but that can end. Why? Because of coaching…this is WMU head coach, Bill Cubit’s second season opening up against a Big Ten opponent. The last time was against Indiana on September 2, 2006. Cubit knows what to do and he won’t succumb to the pressure. WMU holds a record of 2-2 against teams from the Big Ten during Bill Cubit’s tenure. 

  • Michigan may be drained!

Facing allegations, practicing too hard, and caught up in a media frenzy, the players on the team may not be focused. ESPN recently documented that the players said the amount of time they spent on football activities during the season exceeded the weekly limit of 20 hours and often exceeded the daily limit of four hours. That’s a lot of football and the players could be tired! Rich Rodriguez may be putting too much pressure on his team to succeed this season which may bust the pipes of some of his athletes.

You can agree with my reasoning or you can think it’s a bunch of crap…but at the end of the day, only 98 miles seperate Kalamazoo, Mich. from Ann Arbor, Mich. It is a fact that Western Michigan University captured nine wins for only the third time in program history last season. It’s common knowledge that the Broncos appeared in its fourth postseason bowl game in 2008. It is written in stone that the Brown and Gold finished out last season a better team than the 3-9 Wolverines who didn’t even make the post season, which ended a 33-year streak by the way! 

So when the ball is kicked off in Big House on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and all the ABC and ESPN2 cameras are filming the action…remember what I told you. Western over Michigan!!!
