The other day, Western Michigan played Marshall in Huntington, WV. On paper, Marshall was by far the better team, but the Broncos gave The Herd all they wanted, and a lot they didn't want. Although Marshall won 31-21, the issue was in doubt till late in the game. Hard to believe the Broncos were coming in 1-9! What made this ironic was that WM had fired their coach Gary Darnell on Nov.14. Therefore the Broncos were playing under a "lame duck" coach obviously admired by his players, given their showing against a Marshall team that has one of the nation's best home-field records, having blown out several excellent opponents there. Now I ask...Do YOU think it's right to fire a coach during the season because his team isn't winning enough? (No question of firing a coach ANY time for serious wrongdoing!) The Bronco players are to be congratulated for their show. Marshall had their worst season this year for many years, had been walloped the week before 56-35 by Bowling Green, dashing their Bowl and MAC championship hopes, were ready to punish someone and woulda beaten WM 100-0 if they could. I believe it's not fair to the players to fire the coach during the season simply because he's not winning. That's common in the NFL; the players on a losing team are always prepared for the coach, or THEMSELVES, to be released. But in college, the COACH recruits the players, especially those who hadn't considered that school. They play from loyalty to the coach, and even if they opt to not transfer, they HAVE to be affected by firing the coach during the season. Not that I've run my electronic "mouth", it's YOUR turn!
