So WMU is picked to finish third behind Toledo and Northern Illinois this year in the Mac. OK for some in the Bronco Nation they say, "we aren't getting the respect we deserve" Maybe, but on the high end when, and yes I said WHEN the Bronco's win the Mac West Coach Cubit can smile and say "I told you so".
Here is why I say WHEN they win. This Western Michigan Bronco team returns a ton of starters on both offense and defense. This year they have a though early season schedule, with Michigan (wouldn't it be nice to win... but) Central Michigan (my gosh it is about time we win) Illinois and Connecticut (statement games). By the time the Bronco's travel to Toledo and Northern Illinois they would have played in several big games on TV on the road. Coach Cubit has always seems to get better results from his teams when not picked to win the Mac West.
For a good amount of Bronco Nation the success of the season would not be decided in the end with a with a Mac West Title but in the beginning with a win against Central at Waldo Stadium on September 17th.
