KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- After another glorious moment in Western Michigans remarkable turnaround, P.J. Fleck was happy to look back on his first season with the Broncos, when he managed only one win in 2013 as a rookie coach.Im so thankful for 1-11, he said. Itll probably be the most memorable year ever in my mind, because failing is growth and we failed more than anybody in the country, but our perspective of failing was way different, and we wouldnt let each other be down.The 21st-ranked Broncos have come a long way since then, and on Friday night they capped an undefeated regular season in style, routing Toledo 55-35 to secure a berth next week in the Mid-American Conference championship game. Corey Davis became the career FBS leader in yards receiving, and WMU never trailed, advancing to the league title game for the first time since 2000.It was a milestone moment for Fleck, who turns 36 on Tuesday. His row the boat mantra has caught on in a big way at WMU, with fans chanting it and players savoring the chance to play for high stakes as the postseason approaches.Those who would stay, we promise you, you would be a champion, Fleck said, appropriating Bo Schembechlers old saying at Michigan. Were not a full MAC champion yet, but were a MAC West champion. Those who stay, the 1-11 guys, they all get to leave here a champion.The Broncos (12-0, 8-0, No. 14 AP) scored a defensive touchdown on the first play from scrimmage and eventually broke it open in the third quarter. WMU will face Ohio in the MAC title game in Detroit next Friday night, and its looking more and more like the Broncos will be playing for a spot in a major bowl.Kareem Hunt ran for 200 yards and a touchdown for Toledo, but there was only so much he could do after the Rockets (9-3, 6-2) fell way behind in the second half.Zach Terrell went 19 of 25 for 196 yards and three touchdowns for WMU, and Davis caught eight passes for 81 yards and a TD. Davis broke the career mark of 5,005 yards receiving set by Trevor Insley of Nevada from 1996-99.Jamauri Bogan also had a big day for WMU, rushing for 198 yards and a TD.Toledo received the opening kickoff, but Logan Woodsides pass on the first play from scrimmage was intercepted by Asantay Brown, whose 21-yard return gave the Broncos a 7-0 lead.WMU led 24-14 at halftime, then outscored the Rockets 21-0 in the third quarter.Its really hard to run the table in college football and go undefeated as you know, Toledo coach Jason Candle said. Hats off to their staff and their players for getting that accomplished.WMU fans rushed the field after the game in celebration.Weve come so far, and weve struggled so much, Davis said. Just to see the smiles on these guys faces and the fans light up, its just a blessing.THE TAKEAWAYToledo: The Rockets have been one of the MACs most consistently solid teams in recent years, but they havent made the league title game since 2004. Northern Illinois represented the West Division the past six years, and this season WMU has been dominant, leaving Toledo again on the outside looking in.WMU: If there was any pressure on the Broncos because of their undefeated record, it didnt show Friday. Against a tough opponent, WMU was simply terrific, winning by the kind of one-sided score that could certainly catch the attention of the playoff committee. The Broncos could go to a New Years Six bowl if they end up as the top league champion from the Group of Five conferences.WMU and Alabama are the only FBS teams that are undefeated, and Boise States loss to Air Force on Friday derailed one major competitor in the race for that top Group of Five spot.People can label us, put a number on us. We wont. Were going to define ourselves by how we play, Fleck said. Everybody else can talk about our program, say whats missing, say all those things, what conference were in. Were proud to be in the Mid-American Conference, and I would not have it any other way. This is an elite program, elite school, 12-0. Theres only two that are undefeated right now, and its pretty hard to go undefeated.INJURYIt wasnt a great fourth quarter for WMU. Linebacker Caleb Bailey was ejected for targeting, and safety Justin Ferguson was taken off on a stretcher with what Fleck described as a gruesome ankle injury. Ferguson, a senior, drew a nice ovation as he was taken off the field in the final home game of the year.UP NEXTToledo: The Rockets will certainly have a chance to go to a bowl. Hunt is now 24 yards shy of the schools career rushing record. Chester Taylor holds the mark of 4,849 yards.WMU: Somebody is going to win the MAC for the first time in quite a while. The Broncos havent done it since 1988, and Ohios last conference title was back in 1968. Anthony Brown Jersey . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. Randy Gregory Jersey . Emery skated the length of the ice and fought an unwilling Holtby during the third period of the Flyers 7-0 loss Friday night in Philadelphia. He was given 29 penalty minutes, including a game misconduct. But Emery did not face even a disciplinary hearing with NHL senior vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan because rules 46. http://www.cheapcowboysjerseysonline.com/?tag=kavon-frazier-jersey-online . Dusautoir, the former World Player of the Year, sustained a torn bicep playing for Toulouse in the Heineken Cup on Saturday. The flanker, who has played 65 times for France, is expected to be out for up to four months. Charles Tapper Jersey . Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars. Roger Staubach Jersey . No. 13-seeded John Isner and No. 21 Philipp Kohlschreiber were among six players who dropped out of the tournament on Tuesday, joining No. 12 seed Tommy Haas and two other players who withdrew on Monday. Protest is the act of telling the truth in public.Some have chosen to tell the truth with their bodies -- by standing in and shutting down streets, by participating in or leading rallies and marches, or in other forms of direct action -- with the express function of disrupting the normalcy of everyday life that allows some to ignore inequity, racism and injustice.On?July 5, Alton Sterling was killed by two white Baton Rouge?police officers. The very next day, Minnesota officers killed?Philando Castile, which?was livestreamed on Facebook by his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds. Both deaths led to sustained protests across the country.?Sterling and Castile were killed two years after the Black Lives Matter movement began in Ferguson, Missouri, leading to sustained unrest nationwide.It is in this context that the Minnesota Lynx chose to tell the truth in public.On July 10, the Minnesota Lynx wore black warm-up shirts that read, Change starts with us -- Justice & Accountability?on the front?and had the names of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling on the back, along with the statement Black Lives Matter.The truth is that Castile and Sterling should be alive today. They should be with their families, preparing for the holiday. But they are not. They were victims of a system of police violence that continues to plague this nation, victims of systemic inequity and racism that black people and other people of color have confronted for centuries in this America.In wearing the T-shirts, the Minnesota Lynx joined a long tradition of athletes willing to risk the comfort of their position to push public consciousness to confront uncomfortable truths. On the night they wore these shirts, four off-duty officers left their posts?working security at the game in response to the Lynxs stance. The police seemed more upset by a display of grief than they were by the injustice of the murder of two men.The Lynxs move led to three other WNBA teams joining in protest: the Indiana Fever, New York Liberty and Phoenix Mercury. Afterward, the teams were fined $5,000, along with each player being fined $500, as the WNBA noted that the T-shirts violated the uniform policy.The WNBA issued a statement noting that it was proud of WNBA players engagement and passionate advocacy for non-violent solutions to difficult social issues, but this didnt deeter the players.dddddddddddd They staged media blackouts and asked fans to join them by wearing black in solidarity. Carmelo Anthony became one of the most prominent athletes to support the WNBA players, calling the fines into question.The pursuit of change follows many paths, but it begins with awareness; it begins with a willingness to discuss our most uncomfortable truths in public, to use the public space to build momentum, allowing us to enact the change that our lives deserve. In their act of protest, they inspired athletes across the league and continued to demonstrate what we know to be true: that how we think about the world impacts how we live in it.I think about all the days in the street that I spent in protest alongside so many others in Ferguson, Baltimore, Minneapolis and Baton Rouge. In these cities, the common thread was that there was a willingness to challenge the status quo, to disrupt the complacency and timidity that allows injustice to continue to fester. We were willing to endure the consequences of refusing to be silent because we knew that the seductiveness of silence had dire consequences.In the end, the WNBA lifted the fines for the teams.When we tell the truth in public, we force those who depend on the status quo to respond, we force systems and structures to demonstrate in real-time their commitment to our struggles, to our lives, and to a future that is one of equity and justice. In all, when we tell the truth in public we expose the values of the very institutions that claim that they exist for our well-being. In this case, the WNBA fell on the right side of justice.The Minnesota Lynx made an impact in taking a stand, and their act invited others to the work of social justice. I am proud to stand alongside them in the struggle.More on Minnesota Lynx? Minnesota Lynx wear shirts raising awareness of recent shootings Story ??
