Who still believes fleck is the answer?
Fleck just doesn't have a very talented OL.I think Fleck is fine and he'll make the right decisions, but I'm starting to wonder if he's going to have to fire someone again if O-line play doesn't start improving.
How we can't run the ball better than this is a bad sign going into Big Ten season.
I'm waiting for him to bring in Gary Kubiak to start teaching a zone running scheme to the guys.
Here’s my theory: We are going to be fine...we have played 3 teams with smaller quicker defensive lines. We have done a poor job handling the quickness. We now start Big Ten play versus bigger linemen with a step down in the d-line quickness we have faced in non conference. We were not good versus stunts because of this quickness and in some cases the ability of opponents to slide through narrow cracks. Starting with Purdue we will be back to competition we are familiar with.Fleck just doesn't have a very talented OL.

I think is a huge component of how we got to 3 and O. Also, these guys put in so many hours during August alone that time in prep could be a question of too much input versus playing free.The question on PJ has always been whether his staff can coach up players to compete at the Big Ten level. Are his up tempo, low contact practice methods effective? Is the focus on recruiting and off field activities detracting from prep work? The in-game decisions make Claeys look good. He’s a gambler which can work (see last week) or backfire big time (today).
The peaks and valleys of this team are awesome and horrifying. Last season ended really well. This season has been underwhelming. Too soon to know what the future holds. I’m hopeful.
