P.J. Fleck does it all. He’s resurrected a Western Michigan Broncos football program from 1-11 in 2013 to a national ranking in 2016. His squad is barrelling towards a MAC Championship, and he is a Mid-American Conference treasure. He’s sure to turn his work at WMU into a financial windfall at a Power Five university. He does not, however, have a future as a weatherman.

Fleck joined a local newscast this week to deliver the weather report for Saturday’s game with Western Michigan. He describes the sun as this “bright yellow thing.” Fleck is the greatest, Western Michigan fans. Enjoy him while you got him.

Undefeated Western Michigan and Northern Illinois meet Saturday at Waldo Stadium in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 pm ET.
