This season has not turned out the way the Western Michigan Broncos have imagined it. Instead of the team building a winning tradition under a new and exciting head coach, the Broncos are trying to piece together season in shambles.
The latest blemish to the Broncos season came in the form of a 47-20 blowout at Toledo on Saturday. The Broncos fell behind 23-0 until Tyler Van Tubbergen threw a touchdown pass to Eric Boyden. Western was able to put up 20 point but most of those came with the game way out of reach.
Head coach P.J. Fleck told the Bronco Radio Network that the Broncos inconsistent play lead to the blowout.
“Very inconsistent, We continued to stub our toe. We got out-physicaled up front and got pushed back. We were in our backfield for half of the day. We just weren’t good enough.”
There was a bright spot. Zach Terrell came into the game in the second half because of a shoulder injury to Tyler Van Tubbergen. Terrell performed well passing for 184 yards. The true freshman has shown flashes of brilliance in limited time this season showing the ability to command the offense and move the ball. No word yet on whether or not Zach Terrell will get a start to see if he can change the Broncos fortunes.
