It’s been kind of a big day here at Hustle Belt HQ.
This morning, our WMU writer and general editor Brandon Fitzsimons (aka Brown and Gold aka @broncofitz) received an email from ESPN earlier Thursday morning asking him if he could make an appearance on Outside The Lines, ESPN’s investigative reporting feature show.
Fitz, the longest-tenured member of Hustle Belt, has been on the WMU football beat here at the Belt for the last five years and has made a reputation for himself with his weathering the transitional storm that followed Bill Cubit’s firing and PJ Fleck’s tenuous start in Kalamazoo.
Thankfully, ESPN’s nearest studio was a short drive from his real-life job and his boss gave him the time to participate. Fitz joined head coach PJ Fleck and fill-in host Kate Fagan to talk about whether or not WMU was getting the short end of the stick in regards to the College Football Playoff Committee Rankings.
