KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- The Western Michigan University football team is a very experienced group.

"I feel really solid about where we are at with every position," third-year head coach Time Lester said. He is "really excited about our depth and some of the playmakers we have."

The Broncos will start fall practice on Friday, and there's intrigue that comes from the unknown for Lester.

"The one thing I do know is someone is going to come along and make us better," Lester added. "There is going to be some young kid that wasn't here before that is going to take what we know we have and make it better. I don't know who that is going to be; that is the exciting part. Sometimes when you have holes, you are praying that it's at the hole that you have. We don't have any holes, but I still know there is going to some of these freshman or junior college transfers or senior transfers that are going to make a difference, and that is going to happen. Tomorrow morning it's going to start."

WMU plays its first game on August 31 against Monmouth at Waldo Stadium.
