PJ Fleck Burns Donald Celiscar For A Touchdown

+

PJ Fleck may be 33, but he still can take on the best of them, including the Broncos' top corner-back Donald Celiscar. We here at the Belt aren't sure whether to be impressed with Fleck's athleticism at his age or disappointed with Celiscar's coverage abilities but this is surely you can't see anywhere else.

Ball State's IT Department Has Some Explainin' To Do

Ballstatedown

Well this is awkward. After Western Michigan had something from UW-Milwaukee yesterday on their home page, Ball State followed that up with being completely crashed today. This is apparently ongoing, as @cjschexnayder pointed out the error yesterday afternoon. Whatever the issue is, it can't be good to have a downtime of over a few hours

Kent State Center Jason Bitsko Has Passed Away

+

Sad news coming out of Kent State today as center Jason Bitsko was found unresponsive this morning before being pronounced dead from an undisclosed medical issue overnight. He was 21 years old.

Our thoughts and prayers here at Hustle Belt go out to the Bitsko family and the Kent State community. Bitsko was a tremendous football player and an even better person in general.

Miami vs Western Michigan at Soldier Field in February

+

MiHockey has announced that Soldier Field will once again host Miami and their conference foe this year as they'll take on fellow MAC and NCHC rival Western Michigan on February 7th as part of the Coyote Hockey Classic.

Miami last played in Chicago two seasons ago in one of the last CCHA games against Notre Dame. Last year, Western Michigan won the GLI against Michigan and Michigan Tech, with both games being played at Comerica Park.

Bowling Green is also set to play outdoors this season, heading to Fifth Third Field in Toledo, marking the first time in recent memory that all three MAC schools will be playing outdoors in the same season

Can PJ Fleck and His Crew Right The Ship in 2014?

After a rough maiden voyage last season, PJ Fleck looks to right the ship in his sophomore season at the helm of the Western Michigan Broncos.

Jay Harris Leaves WMU To Re-Pursue Rapping Career

7

Per MLive's David Drew, highly touted wide-receiver recruit Jay Harris has left the Western Michigan program to pursue a career in rapping....again. He first did this last year after committing to Michigan State. With the loss of Harris, and the academic ineligibility of Lonnie Johnson (a former Ohio State verbal commit turned Bronco signee), PJ Fleck's highly vaunted recruiting class suddenly looks more and more pedestrian.

Bill and PJ's Excellent Adventure Set To Unfold

Two struggling football coaches travel throughout the country taking on other teams in search for a payday. . . and maybe some wins. Will they succeed in their journey? Will both make it back?

Hockey Has Been Alive and Strong

It may be Summer and the only ice is the one in your glass or snow cone, but hockey has still been going strong this off-season. What have our three teams been up to?

Justin Currie: Quarterback Of the Bronco Defense

While he may not boast the stats, Justin Currie has shown himself to be an intricate part of the Western Michigan Bronco defense since the days of Bill Cubit.
