Perhaps not this year, but in the future shouldn’t WMU be in the mix annually for the championship? As I recall they announced a $550 million gift last year. While most of it was going to their medical school and a few undergraduate programs, there was $50 million set aside for “athletics.” Presumably, some of this will be used to pay athletes, either through the NIL ruse, or directly to players as employees, if that comes about.

My guess is, they put the bulk of that $$$ into football. In their mind, they are a football school. Which stinks, because of the three Michigans, I'd take WMU's basketball history (overall) first though I admit EMU's NCAA Tournament runs in 80s and 90s sit at the top of the list.
