Hello PJ Fleck.....Bye Bye Tracy Claeys

Recommended Posts

After watching what happened with Iowa and Penn State I just didn't like what I was seeing.

 

What do you think and who is a good candidate to fill our coaching vacancy?

I liked the staff more than Cleays. Unfortunately they are probably all gone

Yayyyyy.... the Gophers hired PJ Fleck out of Western Michigan to head up their Football Program.

 

For those of you who don't know he won the MAC and led little know Western Michigan to the Cotton Bowl where they played Wisconsin.

Here is more on him: 

 

http://www.si.com/college-football/2017/01/06/pj-fleck-minnesota-golden-gophers-coach

 

This year, he drew interest from Purdue, Houston and Cincinnati but declined to interview with all of them as he was hoping to pursue a better job. Both Rutgers and Syracuse reached out to Fleck last year, but he declined to pursue those jobs.

 

Fleck, 36, led Western Michigan to bowl games in each of the past three seasons. He’s earned a reputation as a prolific recruiter, bringing in the best class in the MAC the past three seasons and frequently beating low-tier Big Ten schools for prospects. Fleck’s upcoming 2017 recruiting class ranks No. 38 nationally, more than 20 spots ahead of any other program outside the Power 5 conferences. (Minnesota ranks No. 67, one of five teams in the Big Ten West that trail Western Michigan in the recruiting rankings.)

Its never dull in Dinkytown.  He's a "Get", I didn't think the U had a shot.  Supposedly he can recruit and coach em' up, so we will see what happens.  

 

Regardless of what happened on and off the field with Claeys, it sounds like the AD + Pres were very disappointed in the ticket sales and fundraising for the new sports complex.  Plus with a lackluster recruiting class, they decided to pull the trigger.  We have season tickets and attendance was obviously down this year, which really shouldn't have happened considering they had a solid if unspectacular season.

I agree. Claeys didn't have the energy needed to recruit and coach a full 4 quarters.

Fleck stole Ohio States co-offensive coordinator and rising star Coach Warrener to be the MN Gophers offensive line coach.

PJ, is looking good at 8-0. Penn State is coming to town ranked 5th and the Gophers are ranked 13th. Especially when Nebraska was the darling pick to win the BIG10 West. Along with Iowa and Wisconsin. 

 

It would be amazing for the Minnesota Golden Gophers to pull this upset off!

 

I predict a Gophers 2 point win.

 

What do you think?  Your prediction please?

If they can go 3-1 or 2-2 in their next four games I'd be impressed. Obviously Penn State is the most daunting of the four games but Iowa and Wisconsin will be tough games as well.

They really haven't beaten anyone good yet this season.  But in the past, they have lost to the teams they are beating this year, so there is progression.

And if they don't give Fleck a hefty extension, he will be down the road...Florida is already inquiring. He has the program going in a positive direction, academically, athletically, and from a social  responsibility standpoint. Hope they get it done..

Sweet. Lock this guy in to build a dynasty. He's only on year 3.

65% guarantee money and buy out clauses of 10 million this year, 4 million next year and 3 million the following year. He starts at a salary of 4.6 million which presumably increases in subsequent years. Will be interesting to see if he stays this entirety or if he does well will he re-establish his contract again. Either way it's nice to see them beating teams that in the past gave them troubles. Really wish they would have played NDSU this year

PJ Fleck's Gophers vs. Saban's Crimson Tide? Signs point to Minnesota bowl against the gold standard.

 

It looks like Minnesota remains pegged for the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day bowl in Tampa, Fla.

 

ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura saw the Crimson Tide’s fall to 12th, looked ahead and tweeted: “The rankings this week set up a strong possibility that 10-2 Baylor could wind up in the (‘New Year’s Six’ bowls, likely the Cotton) ahead of 10-2 Alabama. Auburn (then goes to the Citrus and Alabama to the Outback Bowl.”

 

CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm also has Baylor in the “New Year’s Six” top tier of bowls, as does Stadium’s Brett McMurphy, who slot:

 Minnesota vs. Alabama.

 

How about that wild prospect? The Gophers might draw a dynastic Alabama program.

      I know I know silly me. I keep going back to the intent and verbiage of the Origin treaty.  Yeah know the whole right to Hunt and fish within the Ceded territory for subsistence-thing.   Words that are still used today in their Regs below.  We both know the days of the canoe and torch light are long gone and eating fish for subsistence (food) has been replaced from Lbs to amount of cash! Is the Fishery a big money maker that the Band can live off of probably not, do they need to live off Walleye for food anymore probably not.  Is the Seven Clans Casino helping to fill the Fisheries void of days gone by?  Dang right skippy!  😉      But, it would be interesting to build your imaginary lake wall and see what happens in 10 years under two different management styles!  😄   Open-Water Spearing and Netting Regulations: 1837 Ceded Territory in Minnesota.   "Lakes other than Mille Lacs. Net fisheries in lakes other than Mille Lacs are intended to provide opportunity for subsistence harvest of walleye; so muskellunge and sturgeon may not be kept, nor can northern pike in excess of the bag limit, nor can commercial nets be set. Subsistence gillnetting is allowed from June 1 to March 1 in any lake that is 1,000 acres or larger and in all lakes identified in 9.08(2) of the Model Code. In lakes 1,000 acres or larger, the allowable mesh sizes (bar) are 1.5 to 1.75 inches. In identified lakes under 1,000 acres, only 1.75 inch mesh (bar) may be used. Nets may be up to 100 feet in length and 4 feet deep"

      I know what you mean eyeguy but if you cry wolf too often people don't pay much attention any more. Any time you are on the ice, in a boat, or in the woods you have to use good judgement, it's just that simple. 
    • eyeguy 54
      all ice fishermen are not as brilliant as you guys. I like it when they make announcements.  nothing wrong with giving out advice when it's the advice givers that end up saving lives when c.r.a.p happens.

      No idea where you get this idea of subsistence, that has never been a condition of this agreement. Lets put it in perspective since you seem to be hung up on the fact that there are 5873 tribe members profiting from this commercial fishery. If the tribe makes a profit of $5 per pound of walleye harvested, and they harvest their entire 1 million pounds of walleye, that will produce a net yearly profit of exactly $852 per tribe member per year......... Yea that's livin' high off the hog. Family of 4, well that gets you a whole $3408 for the year.   Question for ya Leech..... they put a concrete wall on the rez line thru the lake this spring.  Which side gets fished out first (with no additional restrictions added to lower harvest for either side), State side or Tribe side?

      Pelican Has lots of bucket mouth and small mouth in it. If your interested in a resort in the lake highly recommend Joe over at Deer Lodge
    • iiccee63
      Are you serious??? Lakes are like people....they are all different. The DNR making a blanket statement like that is what they have to do. The lakes I give ice reports I know like the back of my hand. Meaning, I watch how they freeze up every single year. Like the St. Croix...I know how it freezes, where the trouble spots are typically ect. because I have fished it on and off since 86'. DNR has no clue what's going on the lakes I fish.    
    • leech~~
      Same with Pheasants. Not native but treated as so with a season and stamp costs. I would love to be able to fish more Lakers in other lakes then just a few I have to drive hours up to.
    • Sculpin
      Please also convey your collective ideas to the DNR relative to Mille Lacs lake, another fishery inundated with bass, and totally out of whack relative to the walleye population. The DNR would have you believe that the primary forage of small mouth bass is crayfish. When asked what they eat in the winter, you are met with a blank stare, and told there needs to be a study on that. I've caught a ton of smallies, but never once on a crayfish, or an imitation, but I'm sure they work. Leeches, crawlers, senkos, redtails, suckers, every crankbait imaginable, surface baits, buzzbaits, spinner baits.  The protection of the smallmouth fishery is driven by political pressure, the Smallmouth Alliance, folks like the Linders, tournament organizers, and everyone else who can convince the DNR they make for a great fishery.
