    As for what Croft did/has done - I don't think any of us know...and its kind of unfair to speculate (but here I go): if it has been ongoing problem, I think it points to either grades or a substance use disorder.
    Fleck said Croft's personal issue happened after he named Rhoda the starter, so unless you don't believe Fleck's explanation, I don't see how it was something ongoing with him.

    Did he say an event happened after.... or did he say he made the decision on what to do after?

    I thought he indicated that that the decision on the starter came first. Then later they dealt with whatever happened. I don't think Fleck ever said when he knew what or the timing of any specific event or such.

    The AP reporter who is a regular guest on KFAN and KSTP said there have been problems with Croft that go back to Claeys and maybe Kill. He didn't go into detail about what the problems were.

    On Monday, Fleck named Conor Rhoda the starting quarterback after a battle with Croft that lasted throughout preseason camp and into the first two games of the season. Fleck said the decision to start Rhoda was made prior to Croft’s issues.
    “Absolutely, this is not a reaction to what had happened,” Fleck said. “… Conor was informed of (being named the starter) before.”

    Is "croft's issues" an event or when they became aware of it?

    Not that it matters either way.

    I think PJ's timing statement was more to say Rhoda was chosen first and on his own merits rather than trying to give us a timeline of whatever happened that he doesn't want to talk about (understandably).

    Zero unless there is injury or really bad performance issue (and I don't want to even consider that) ?
    I would love to see the Gophers build a good lead and see Green and other backups in the second half. I would say 30% chance of that in this game (might be too close).

    That and PJ might feel that with this teams confidence level and the noobs on the team.... might be best to get as much time as possible for the starters.

    Hopefully good because we're up 3 scores in the 4th quarter. If the Croft issue is long-term then obviously Green is not red-shirting. May as well get him in there.

    He already redshirted last year so it's a moot point.
