    I expect the first annual Gopher Football Kickball Invitational to be announced at any moment.

    2. Many posters don't like the way the Claeys firing went down (including myself) and are carrying that energy over into their assessment of Fleck (unlike myself). I see the Claeys thing as spilled milk and unrelated to Fleck.

    3. To each his own.

    4. Whiffle ball is awesome.
    This. This is all accurate and how I feel. +1.

    We use to put one strand of duct tape around the ball that had holes to get more distance.
    You could still break off a nasty curve.

    "It's a game. A player has to like it. We expect to have a good time and run a happy ship."
    - Bud Grant, upon his hiring as Viking head coach

    I always look for this quality in a coach. I like that Fleck has a strong sense of fun.

    +1, It's supposed to be rowing the boat, not being chained to the oars.

    It's already being added on to the new athletics complex. It's being put where the new track and field complex was going to be, so track will be off campus for another 10 years during construction, but I'm sure they won't mind.

    This time of year broom ball would have been tremendously more elite.

    It's not a demand, just my expectations and many others, which are entirely reasonable. Half the newly hired coaches in the recent past in FBS have actually improved on the previous year's win total. Better players, better facilities. Schemes not that much different. Pass offense is actually simpler for QB and designed for high level of success.

    Yep. Also the Wayne's World scenario for cars..."Game off!"...everybody clears the street, then quietly retake their previous positions and..."Game on!"

    Proud to say I was part of a 2-time Intramural Whiffle Ball Championship team back in college. So many teams took it way too seriously. We just chugged a few beers before each game and just had fun.
