Willie Taggart and his staff took over in November of 2009 and have wasted no time in getting the youngest member of the FBS bowl eligible.
After starting the season 0-4, Western Kentucky has won 6 of their last 7 games. Their only loss during that stretch was to top ranked LSU.
With three other conference teams already bowl eligible (Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette, and Florida International), Taggart is making his case for the Hilltoppers saying that "We've got a red-hot football team that deserves it".
Western Kentucky will look to make it 7 wins in their last 8 games as they finish their season at home against Troy (3-7, 2-4) on Saturday.
Also, his running back, Bobby Rainey is legit.
