    Tom Fenton: There’s a method to P.J. Fleck’s madness

    Oprah Winfrey being a hero of his? I have to really lol at that.

    All Things P.J. Fleck Rumor Mill Thread - Listed as Candidate for Other Jobs

    They seriously had Bobby Bowden at 50/1 odds? He was ridiculously old when he retired after the 2010 season. He’s a decade older now. He’s gotten so senile that he did a U (for U of Miami) symbol. And they didn’t even have odds on Norvell, the guy they ended up selecting? Bizarre.

    ESPN: How each Top 25 college football team wins next season's national title

    Holy cow. I had no idea about that. That's awful. But, with that being said, Iowa State was only playing 7 conference games when they went 5-2 and Vandy was only playing 6 conference games when they went 4-2. Minnesota has been playing at least 8 conference games every season.

    ESPN: How each Top 25 college football team wins next season's national title

    I think it’s in part because MN football was in a through from 1969 until just last year. For God’s sake, coming into 2019, we hadn’t lost less than 3 conference games since 1973. I don’t know how many other FBS teams held that distinction. Vanderbilt, probably. But who else? There’s a...

    ESPN: Bo Pelini returning to LSU as defensive coordinator

    Sometimes, fired coaches will voluntarily choose to stay unemployed and enjoy their buyout. However, if they’re taking a new job, they’ll always select a Power 5 job or even a Group of 5 job over an FCS job. They want to take the most prestigious job available. It’s not just because of the...

    ESPN: Bo Pelini returning to LSU as defensive coordinator

    Seriously? He would have been fired as head coach at YSU after 2019, and possibly even after 2018, if Tressel wasn’t resisting to firing a guy who he hired. He had an 18-22 record in MVC play. A guy who did badly as an FCS head coach is not going to get a Power 5 head coaching job.

    Official 2021 Gophers Football Recruiting Updates Thread: Links, Tweets, Videos etc

    Nebraska's recruiting rankings are actually pretty bad for a school with as much football tradition as they have. They're considered to be one of the 8 historical powers of CFB. Their talent composite is 24, and Scott Frost isn't doing anything to improve that ranking.

    Next year will be the first year when the roster will be entirely Fleck recruits. The talent composite was 63 in his first year in 2017. In 2019, it was 46th. It'll be higher next year since this class is looking pretty good. If he has a few more successful seasons, maybe he can get the...

    What grade would you give PJ Fleck, 3 years into his tenure at the U?

    A so far. Although obviously it remains to be seen what he can maintain.

    PFF: The least penalized team in P5 football is....

    Very nice. A sign of good coaching.

    Hole Poll: What grade would you give the Gophers non-conference portion of the season?

    I graded it as D. It was looking like an F early on.

    Sid Hartman: Next season will be the most anticipated campaign in nearly 60 years.

    The 1960 season wasn't anticipated at all. Minnesota had gone 3-15 the previous 2 years, and Murray Warmath was hung in effigy.

    Delany on Rutgers/Maryland: "in a 25-year or 50-year period, I think they’re going to be very competitive."

    Lol if you think the $50 million per year from the BTN is because of Rutgers.

    Rate the last 3 awful coaches

    What relevance does it have to Minnesota basketball if coach K or Roy Williams is the better coach? (I think K is pretty clearly the better coach FWIW.)

    Delany on Rutgers/Maryland: "in a 25-year or 50-year period, I think they’re going to be very competitive."

    How did Jim Delaney convince at least 9 of the 12 Big 10 members (Pretty sure that was the minimum standard for admission) that Rutgers delivers the NYC or even NJ tv markets? It’s one thing for one person to have a goofy idea like Rutgers bringing TV markets. But when 12 people, especially 12...
