Yep, seems like there is little to no doubt a nice raise/extension is coming but just how big that raise and extension might be will depend a lot on how things go over the remainder of the season.Correct. Let the season play out. Then come to the table and bang out a raise/extension.
I feel faint just thinking about it.if I'm Fleck, I go 13-0, go on the announcement show and say "The CFP didn't want the Big Ten champions in prior years and they aren't getting one this year. The RTB Culture is about connecting the past with the present, and we are heading to Pasadena baby!"
Coaching changes often take place before the end of the season. It’s needs to happen in the next couple weeks. Fleck’s agent is probably already getting calls about him.Correct. Let the season play out. Then come to the table and bang out a raise/extension.

Location, location, location. Smart coaches know that if you build it they will come. They don’t let themselves get into no win situations.Fleck does seem to be a great coach -- Western Michigan 12-0, are you kidding me? And now the Gophers turn-around. But who turns down millions out of sentimental loyalty? Billionaires might because a million is pocket change to them. But not other mortals. So Fleck left W. Michigan and I vouchsafe he'll leave Minnesota if the price is right.
Eventually, he'll want to join the ranks of the Meyers and the Sabans, and he'll want to hold the natty trophy in his hands, based on doing things the way he runs the program.I think there's a chance he sticks around for a long time. He will not get the freedom with RTB and everything else at a helmet school. He'll have to scale it back and I don't think he'll want to do that.
I also think he there's a chance he really wants to show everyone that his culture can work anywhere. Winning at MN is much tougher than at Michigan or USC.
We'll see, I could be completely wrong and he'll leave the second he gets a big offer. I hope I'm right though.
Any reason why the U wouldn’t pay to keep him? Historically they don’t have a great track record but now? When you’re talking potential of him moving the needle, resurrecting Gopher football and the risk of completely alienating the true fans if he leaves now that we have a taste, seems the answer is obvious.
I hope most MN fans realize there will be some ebb and flow with Seasons. The key is to pounce when opportunity presents itself.Fleck would be very smart to pressure a big deal now or else leave if he's offered something better. After this year we start getting Michigan, Ohio St, Michigan St, and Penn St more on our schedule along with a non conference opponent tougher than Fresno St. I'm not saying we can't beat them, but I'd expect the record to dip more than raise in the coming years.
Us MN fans apparently demand perfection or a new coach and I could see a situation where his seat gets warm before they build a statue of him.
Not trying to be a negative Nancy just pointing out something I'm sure his people have thought of.
