    This is easy to understand. The more you like PJF the less you expect this year. 8 wins expected demonstrates a hater. If you really were an optimist about PJF, as you claim, you would be expecting much lesser results. Maybe 4 wins would demonstrate that better. Less than that if you REALLY liked him.

    Not anti-Fleck, but I put this right up there with throwing tennis balls.

    Can you see how ironic this is? No one had made a single negative post until yours. They still haven't.

    As for Coach Fleck, very pumped.

    Just like when Coach Kill was hired, and then Tracy took over, there are times you just have to have faith.

    For me...In Fleck We Trust.
    In any case...we're Flecked!

    So......whiffle ball, huh? Gotta change it up once in awhile. Fleck seems like very much a player's coach.

    Yeah I haven't seen it either.

    Wiffle ball is tons of fun.

    Could throw a great curve ball and also could never hit one...with the skinny bat.

    Well in fairness, wiffle ball curve balls are absolute insanity. When I played we had a rule that you could only throw knuckle balls or put "a little" spin on it because it just gets absurd.

    Mine was a bad joke.
    Do you really want to compare the negativeness of our post histories?

    But man that feeling when you were batting and were able to connect on a nasty curveball.

    So true, but then at night someone had to sneak out and climb up the poorly secured ladder at the neighboring fast food join to get on the roof to retrieve the dingers...

    Key word is EXPECTED. I think 8 wins is possible, but I'm not going to make demands like that of a coach in his first year in a new city with new players who have to learn new schemes.

    Maybe not in a decade, but Kill's 2009 NIU team played Wisconsin tougher than Minnesota had since 05'.

    I think most people are just being cautiously optimistic.

    Regarding the Whiffle ball, good team building exercise.
