Thank you for most of your support that WMU athltetics and specifically Basketball should be recruiting the Chicagoland area.

Someone pointed out in an earlier post some % rate of college students that narrow down or make their selections heavily based on the aura of that schools image, an image significantly shaped by the success of revenue producing mens sports.

IF the new President is fully aware that hand in hand relationship of success on the field and being a draw to the overall student population he has a leg up than if starting from scratch.

First, the football facilities are second to none for the level of competition.
UA is fine but the end zone seating is visual unappealing.

Second, both revenue producing sports have good coaches and programs poised to be relatively successful for the next couple years.

Third, WMU has an appealing campus and it is easily accessed by air, rail and highway.

The lack of student participation, not just attendance at sporting events is an underlying issue. Historically, WMU does not have that "successful athletic" draw that UM, MSU or even GVSU have. Albeit different levels.

Therefore, aside from state funding, no minor ingredient, the buzz generated from successful revenue sports is critical. The President down to the AD can drive that.

Here's to that not being lost on the new President and the Board of Trustees. 04-wine
