It's not that WMU Football hasn't been on the map, but I don't believe it's ever been this high profile. Winning, of course, is crucial, but coach P. J. Fleck certainly helps.

After watching the other Broncos (oh, yeah, the Super Bowl champs) on the TV last night, I flipped over to ESPN and there's Scott Van Pelt with an oar in his hands. It's was a clip from last week, and then he introduced the WMU Football coach, to explain the oar and "Row the Boat".

Pardon me for being a bit like Eeyore, but Fleck is 35, successful. That's the problem with WMU being a "mid-major school". Another great season and he can write his own ticket.
