Rivalries can run deep. 

Deep enough to say something extremely powerful that may rub some people the wrong way.

After a 49-10 loss to Western Michigan this weekend, CMU head coach John Bonamego had one of those moments.

"You can quote me on this. I would rather go through eight weeks of chemotherapy radiation again than lose to lose to that team the way we did. That's the truth, that's how I feel,"  Bonamego said.

It was the worst loss to the Broncos by the Chippewas since 1970.

CMU is now 3-2 while Western Michigan came in as the 25th ranked team in the AP poll this week.
