Western Michigan and P.J. Fleck:

• That was a non-denial denial by Fleck on contact with WMU's Robert Spillane before the linebacker decided to transfer. "We're not recruiting any WMU player'' isn't the same as "I never talked with him.''

• Why was it tawdry for Fleck to sign nine WMU commits for Minnesota? Because he had recruited them while on WMU's dime.

• As for "Row the Boat," does anyone think WMU wanted to keep that corny slogan after Fleck's back-stabbing on recruits?
