WNMU football is now 0 wins 5 loses. They're only playing 10 games this year so winning season not possible.

They have not solved the attendance problem by lowering the ticket price. Total attendance first two home games 794, last year 1,047.

Football team now 0-7. If they don't win the rest of their games they will have the worst season in the pass 11 years.

It appears that the Athletic Department is addressing the drop in attendance at events by no longer giving attendance at the football games and this year have not given attendance figures for any volleyball games. If no one knows about the drop in attendance you don't have to explain it.

Western is now 0-8, going to have the worst record in the history kept on the Western web page.

Western doesn't have any more weak teams to play, the last two teams are the strongest in the Loan Star Conf.

Midwestern State 6-2
Tarleton State 8-0
