Had zero to do with Fleck personally, and it’s hard to take it serious that you genuinely misinterpreted it as that.I replied directly to what you posted. You are more worried on how it might look for Fleck personally and not the team and University?
It would say a lot about the staff if losing this one player means Gophs drop off a cliff, and rightly so.
Agree to disagree, Tyler was drafted 161st, They are talking about Rashod being a first/second round guy. Love them both, but in two years of highlights I don't see the drops with Rashod that plagued TJ through his career. We will never know what could have been, so TJ's stat line as a gopher will never get challenged like i think it would have with just one more season of Rashod.We had two receivers of that caliber on the team last year. So at least 2 in a generation
How can your initial response to be to call a kid who gave the U so much a "coward" and a "piece of sh*t"??? Get some perspective, man.That was my initial response too...I was so upset and pissed off.
but so many athletes opting out, in every league. Covid has just screwed everyone so bad.
Likely won't even be a season...
I judge people’s college worth based more on their college production and impact more than draft position and nfl career.Agree to disagree, Tyler was drafted 161st, They are talking about Rashod being a first/second round guy.

Why wouldn’t an agency pay him. He is a guaranteed money maker next sprint unless the NFL folds.This is an interesting thought. I mean, you live like royalty on campus (except there is no campus life this year) or you take a working man’s approach and make this your full-time job out in Cali (or where ever he is)
Do we really think he’s able to start collecting money now? That’s a pretty big incentive for a 20 year old kid. What would an agency realistically be paying him? 10-20 grand a month to train? Interesting
I asked if it was sarcasm. You chose to word it the way you did, that's not my fault.Had zero to do with Fleck personally, and it’s hard to take it serious that you genuinely misinterpreted it as that.
I only referenced Fleck in as much as he is our program and his record is our record.
As I said in the posts, which you clearly didn’t read, if Bateman and Morgan both opt out ....
1. This sucks - for the Gophers and the Fans, but RB13 is doing what he thinks is best for himself and that is all we can expect. I wish him nothing but the best - hope he is a 1st round pick, and will most likely buy a Bateman Jersey when he lands in the NFL (to go with my Gopher Bateman Jersey).
2. mjfelton15 is a poor poster. He is very naive and says some really dumb things. Nothing he posted here should have got him banned.
I’m afraid the chance is much higher than 50%. Momentum is quickly moving in wrong direction.There’s at least a 50% chance of no football being played.
I’m sure teams are going to pass on his talent to draft a guy clearly worse because he opted out of going to a college campus during a pandemic
It's Nnamdi Adim-Madumere time!...(I guess).GL in NFL Rashod!
Next man up! Biggest bump ups IMO will be Ibrahim (And other RBs) as well as Tight Ends. Still PLENTY of options on this offense.
Dealing with adversity, like NFL draft guys, is how you become a big time team consistently
Very true, if the season is moved a ton of top guys who don't have a lot to prove will opt not to play in order to get ready for the NFL as it would be almost certain that the NFL would not alter its timelines a ton to accommodate a late college season.This isn’t that surprising given the uncertainty surrounding public health and whether or not a season will even be played this fall.
If the season is moved to the spring more of the top players with a first round or second round NFL draft grade will be opting out.
Yuck. I mean, I do think the reaction to Covid is overblown, but still...yuck. His choice to play or not and we can’t possibly know all the factors that went into this decision. It does suck for the team, but I will choose to remember his great moments here.What an effing coward. Good riddance dude. Stupid POS
