How well the NCAA will be able to enforce the guidelines and how that enforcement stands up to legal challenges remain to be seen.

"College football and college athletics is changing drastically," Fleck told the caravan gathering. "There's no putting the genie back in the bottle."

Since the end of the 2021 regular season, Fleck has seen 18 Gophers enter the transfer portal, including standout running backs Ky Thomas and Mar'Keise Irving. Seven players have transferred to Minnesota, with guard Chuck Filiaga (Michigan), defensive end Lorenza Surgers (Vanderbilt) and cornerback Beanie Bishop (Western Kentucky) among those playing key roles during spring practice.

"It's part of the deal. Get used to it," Fleck said. "Transfer doesn't mean bad. We've benefited from it, but we've also had to give some to do that. These days, kids aren't willing to sit behind somebody. It's a way of life."

Go Gophers!!
