"That was a blue collar butt whooping"
- by Administrator 2 years ago
Western Kentucky lost their last 8 games in 2008. Didn't win one in 2009; and they lost their first 6 in 2010.
However, since week 7 of last season, Willie Taggart's bunch is 5-8 (Taggart was hired after the 2009 season).
Saturday they got their first home victory of the season (also the first since 2008...and the first ever home victory over an FBS opponent), 42-23 over Louisiana Lafayette (who came into the game 6-1, 4-0 in the Sun Belt). Coach Taggart's got himself a running back and a team that's willing to work hard and play as a team.
Watch the video and see sheer exuberance from the players after this win. Taggart's pride in the effort his guys showed on the field is evident. Given the historical significance of the win for his program, his words and pride seemed extremely justified.
