A few, good, objective comments here and happy to see it.
But many keep making excuses for close losses after 5/6 years. Fleck's record against WI/Iowa speaks for itself. What's the winning percentage?
Some think Fleck is the best recruiter in the last two/three decades. If that is true, why is his winning percentage only slighter better than Masons? The answer...he's not a great "in game" HC.
To be on the level of our two biggest rivals in the West, you can't keep making bone headed mistakes.
It's not a difficult concept.
Well, considering Mason was our best coach in the last 40 years, being better than Mason would be a good thing.
You're conveniently leaving out all of the other "move the goal post arguments" people make.
"Why doesn't he beat Nebraska?"
"Why can't he even beat Purdue and Northwestern?"
"Why can't he win a Bowl Game?"
"Why can't he beat a top 20 team?"
"Why can't he schedule and win some games against Power Five teams?"
Why, because he's done all of those things in 5 short years.
