    Default Re: Fleck interview recap.

    Just to let people know - If Fleck appears on the Sports Huddle Sunday, I will not be able to post a recap. My home PC is in the shop - fried my motherboard Friday night.

    I'm posting this from my tablet, which is OK for short messages, but will not work for long -form entries.

    Hope to get PC back sometime next week.

    OK. Feeling guilty, so here is a bullet-point version of Sports Huddle Fleck interview. 1-13-19

    New coaches - Panagos married to Mike Tice's sister. One of best DL coaches in country. Good recruiter.

    Sid asked about team in pre-season ratings. PJ - that's for other people to talk about. Shows recognition for program. Players have to deal with expectations.

    Sid - FR on offense should get better. PJ: better tomorrow than you are today. Focus on whole life. Academics.

    Max- January recruiting? PJ: 3 spots left. Could be HS or transfer, or hold for next year.

    Max- grad transfers. PJ: have to be in portal. Look in term of need, instant depth. New trend in college FB.

    Sid- fill holes on defense? PJ: lot of young guys on roster. Add with 2019 class. Still a youthful team.

    Mona- rules on kids enrolling early. PJ: encourage kids to go home and graduate with HS class. Can use cost-of-attendance funds, which they get once they start school.

    Sid- bowl practice helped? PJ: got healthy on offense. Defense worked on triple option. Got back to fundamentals.

    Max- multi-sport athletes report early and give up other sports? PJ: talk to kids and give opinions. Give benefits of starting early, and explain what they'll be giving up. Never tell kid they have to report early.

    Mona- 2 or 3 kids to watch for next season. PJ: Brevyn Spann-Ford. Braelin Oliver.

    Sid-when does Spring Practice start? PJ: March.

    Mona- position changes? PJ: Howard will stay at CB. Coaches will talk about other changes soon - maybe some changes on special teams.

    Sid- any more JUCOs? PJ: no. will take 1 or 2 a year most years.

    Mona- Smith and Brooks? PJ: rehabbing. Getting stronger.

    PJ: (on coaches leaving for other jobs). Proud of our staff. Support them 100%. Interest in Gopher coaches shows that we're doing things right. Tribute to our culture.

    Sid- Murray's.

    Has anyone told PJ his offense doesn’t utilize pass-catching tight ends?

    Thanks SON for making our Sundays that much better.

    The one thing about a young energetic coach like PJ Fleck is that he is up to date on trends in college football. Instant depth by Grad Transfer infusion.

    They did an excellent job on coaching for the Georgia Tech Game. I am glad it gave them time also to get back to fundamentals. Jerry Kill was big on that.

    We saw a night and day difference between Robb Smith's and Joe Rossi's approach on defense. Rossi simplified the defensive scheme. Kids were reacting more instead of thinking and were very disciplined in their coverage. Rossi had the kids playing sound fundamental football.

    I think it's too early too reach any conclusions on this - we just have to wait and see.

    In the meantime, thank you very much for dong this - very much appreciated here.
    The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.

    Thanks. Didn't want to let the board down.

    PS- If you have a Dell PC and "Support Assist" pops up and tells you to update your BIOS, don't do it. Apparently I'm not the only person who fried their motherboard trying to do this.

    Did both Spann-Ford and Oliver appear in 4 games or less this year, making them both RS-FR next year? I believe so but don't know
