    The Broncos of Western Michigan University are undefeated, and the only other undefeated team in the NCAA is Alabama. As Navy lost to Temple on Saturday, we are going to the Cotton Bowl to take on the Big Ten champions Wisconsin! I know the odds are overwhelmingly against my Broncos, but we beat 2 Big Ten schools earlier in the season-Illinois and Northwestern.


    I would love it if we got to go to the NCAA playoffs, and got to play U of M. Even though the odds would probably be even higher against us than with Wisconsin, nothing would make me happier than to see their overpaid coach get defeated by an MAC team. Ironically, Harbaugh's dad was our coach when I was a student at WMU in the early to mid 80s.

    Very cool stuff. Bowl games are great fun. My school had a down year, playing in Memphis, so only marginally warmer.

    Spent a great Saturday afternoon standing by the OU bench on the field at the bowl decades ago.

    We lost, but we didn't get killed. We put up a good game against a team that was bigger, better-funded and from a much more competitive league than ours.
