Darnell Names Baggett the Starter
Baggett edged out Rutgers transfer Ryan Cubit, son of former WMU offensive coordinator Bill Cubit, who is still nursing an injury. The Portage Central graduate will be a backup to Baggett along with fellow junior Robbie Haas.
The decision was made following morning practice on Wednesday during a staff meeting, and was made in part because Cubit's strained shoulder was still keeping him off the field. Baggett was then informed by phone, and called into Darnell's office to talk about the decision.
Darnell said that Baggett would be able to keep his starting job for as long as he performs at a high level. Both Cubit and Haas will see playing time in the opening game, but barring injury the job will remain Baggett's.
Alex Engram will be redshirted this season and is expected to be a backup next season.
Beginning this season students will not only need to show a valid student ID to enter WMU athletic contests, they will now have their ID scanned to prove they are currently enrolled in classes.
Students are encouraged to arrive at the stadium early to avoid delays.
All Kick-off Times Finalized:
The kick-off times for away games have been finalized with the announcement of a 1pm start for the game at Virginia Tech. The game at Illinois is slated for a 1pm central time start. The complete schedule, including times, is available at wmubroncos.com.
