The way things are going, players are going to able to sign sponsorship deals with companies. That is the future, according to recent Supreme Court ruling. The twin cities has a high concentration of corporations. So if you're a player, you have a better chance of lining up a sponsorship deal in the cities than 90% or more of the other colleges and universities in the country. I'm pretty sure that fleck is aware of this emerge opportunity, and willuse this competitive advantage to bring higher quality athletes. Try and match that vaTech
When this happens, big companies that actually do want to have a player as a marketing piece will have little to do with where a recruit goes, outside of the company wanting the player to get as much national exposure as possible (read national powerhouses). Deep pocketed donors will have a field day bidding for players to come to their team under the guise of marketing some company they have.

Gopher athletes are largely unknown in the twin cities market so why would a corporation pay them when they don’t have name recognition with a large percentage of residents here? Heck only a very small percentage of the biggest pro stars here have endorsement deals locally.

Pretty out there for speculation. Fuente currently has a better overall record and conference record at VT compared to Fleck at the U. Expect VT to win 8 games as well.
Would love to know where this "buzz" is coming from. I mean this is Shooter so probably isn't even worth wasting time with but still this is a really really odd nugget to toss out there.

VT has a coach who maybe hasn't been as good as Beamer was but hasn't been terrible either. So the assumption here is that they are going to fire their coach and only target Fleck if the Gophers with 8 games or more? This whole thing just doesn't add up....and again...considering the source that is not surprising at all.

Fleck has said that one of the things that was important to him was being the only power 5 team in the state. So if that is the case then Virginia Tech wouldn't be an option due to Virginia. Color me skeptical that there is any "buzz" outside of maybe that constant buzzing noise in shooter's head which probably contributes the the nonsense he puts out there on a regular basis.

Fleck’s agent drop that nugget?
Remember that this is coming from Shooter. So the buzz could have been coming from some homeless guy on the corner or maybe his imaginary friend who feeds him scoops sometimes. Shooter is such a waste of space with the garbage he puts out on a regular basis.

VT? Give me fckg break. No way a football coach leaves a competitive B1G job to join the ACC!

Most ACC football teams wish they were in the B1G!

Even Coach understands $$$ can't buy everything. Doesn't hurt of course but he can't get everyone to the NFL...

As I understand it having a home on 'Tonka is pretty darn nice too. Worth the winters here more often than not...and I'm originally from The South.

VT cannot compete with that...just say'in...

Fleck has a new list and it doesn’t have 10 schools anymore. VT isn’t on the list.
as others have said, Shooter is just throwing sh!t at the wall. He got this thread bumped and 2 additional pages so it worked.

Yup - he's got a few more clicks. Child's play. He's got his yuks. Now let's move on.

Pretty sure Shooter doesn't care what happens in this thread. Now if he can lure a couple more suckers to the website to read his "insights" I suppose that helps him some.

Just sad, the guy wants so badly to be Sid but he is just so bad at his job it isn't even funny.

VT increasingly = Kansas State. One guy had great success there, but good luck to anyone else. It was one thing when the ACC was mostly devoid of a power school in the 80's/early 90's. And then it was FSU and Miami. But now Clemson is a top 5 power and not going anywhere, and FSU and Miami are still better positioned to come back than VT is. Heck, UVa has mostly caught VT in the state of Virginia. It's not a job I would see Fleck bolting for.

Va Tech was in the Big East in their glory days, not the ACC.

Yeah, if I were to make a list of places I would be concerned about Fleck leaving for, VA Tech wouldn't be anywhere close to the top of that list. Weird speculation, even by Shooter's standards. Would really love to know who was feeding him that line of BS.

Maybe Fleck is a big Enter Sandman fan...

Would be a step down. Fleck is not going anywhere. Fleck has a good deal going on here. Large metro, endorsements and speaking cash. Lots of fan patience. He will be here longer than Mason was.

UNC has potential, so does NC State probably, as well as GT. Lot more schools in the ACC I'd rather take over.

But strengthens his point: in the Big East it was pretty much Miami or VT winning it and going to the Orange Bowl.

Currently in the ACC ... I'm not even sure if VT is in the top 5 programs, maybe top half.

Umm, it's Clemson and a bunch of also-rans.

If Fleck were to go "anywhere" I'd say it would be either an SEC school or a Pac-12 school (So-Cal)

Beyond that, I don't know why you'd move unless the money and booster support was just too big to turn down.

If he wants to win a national title, and feels that overcoming the barriers to entry of the current CFB oligopoly (Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State) at a place like Minnesota is not possible, then maybe. I don't think he's at that point.

per Shooter:

There’s already buzz that if the Gophers footballteam wins eight games, which is probable, Virginia Tech could be coach P.J. Fleck’s next job at $6 million a year. Fleck, 40, signed through 2026 at $4.6 million a year, has a contract buyout of $4.5 million this year.


Go Gophers!!
Good, let's hope we have a coach that everybody else wants.

Would be an odd move to leave a school where 8 wins get you the VT job to go to a school where 8 wins gets you fired so they can hire the gopher coach who won the same amount of games

especially when it isn’t THAT much easier to win at VT.
VT is the Kansas state of the east coast. Will be interesting to see if anyone can ever duplicate the same success level of the best coach in their history

Coach Fleck chimes in:

* Fleck on offseason rumors that Tennessee was interested in him as a coaching candidate before it hired Josh Heupel. "There's rumors all the time in college football about coaches. I have no idea where that comes from. Once somebody starts speculating something, it goes like wildfire.''


Go Gophers!!
