There are some things that just won't go together no matter what - oil and water, Kalamazoo and Mount Pleasant. But this video tour of the home of Central Michigan University might just change some WMU minds.
A friend asked me if I wanted to head up to Mt. Pleasant to watch Central Michigan play Saturday. I immediately was interested because a 5-9 guard has been on fire for the Chippewas and everyone I know who loves college basketball said 'you gotta see this kid play'.
Forget what happens on Saturdays in East Lansing or Ann Arbor. True football fans in Michigan know the best rivalry in the state exists between Central Michigan and Western Michigan. Now there's a movement to get ESPN's 'College Gameday' program to Mount Pleasant for the 2016 WMU-CMU game.
The Central Michigan Chippewas played the top-25 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys close on Saturday, well enough to be down by just 3 points as time was expiring. The Chips scored a miracle touchdown on the final, un-timed down of the game to shock OSU.
