- Two games in which we have literally no shot (@OSU, Mich)
- One game in which we have almost no shot (@UNC)
- One game in which we have little shot against a rival we haven't beaten since the Obama administration (@IA)

Now, if you assume we'll go 0-4 in those games (I certainly do), that leaves 8 others. Even supposing we're favored in all 8 of them (no sure thing), given our success rate as favorites this year we'll be lucky to win 6.

Striving to eke out 6 wins in year 7 under Fleck - I know that's what I was hoping for when I stood in Tampa and watched us dismantle a top-10 SEC team almost 3 years ago.
We have almost no shot vs unc? Also Michigan and OSU will always be tough outs when they are at the height of their powers like they both are right now. You expected too much if you thought we’d become the third super power in the B1G by year 7. UNC has a bunch of one score wins vs nobodies, and bad loss to GT. And you’re giving us little chance of beating a team that we could have easily beaten this year and in other recent years. I dunno he pessimistic if you want, but I don’t see a reason to have no hope.

Shooter chimes in:

— If Fleck were to leave the Gophers, this season would seem to be his best opportunity in that he has had a veteran team, and Ohio State and Michigan are on the schedule next year, which now looks like a 6-6 record at best.


Go Gophers!!
Anyone who thinks 6-6 is possible is smart
Anyone who think it looks like 6-6 at best is an idiot

Did someone need some attention?

Maybe he wants to be challenged. Maybe he wants to coach in the big ten. Maybe OSU is off the table. Who knows?
I'd sure find out.

Great - get right on that’s and report back ASAP.

Let’s be honest, you haven’t read my posts as I’ve criticized him quite a bit

I criticized him last year for the offense when everyone thought it was Sanford. I said it was more fleck’s offense than Sanford’s.
I criticized him for bringing back KC. I would be okay letting go both the OC and WR coach. I wish he would bring in someone more innovative as OC and really turn it over to him.
I disagree with him on punt and punt return strategy.
I think he undervalues a timeout over delay of games In punting situations.

I think he has a huge recruiting gap at the WR position.



I also think that he has won more than any coach since the 1960s
I also think if you fire him you don’t get a coach as good at Rhule to come to Minnesota…and id rather have fleck than Rhule. Fleck’s Minnesota is pretty similar to Rhule’s Baylor but with a larger sample size. Fleck’s western Michigan was better than Rhule’s temple. Of the last 3 coaches at Baylor Rhule is the only one who didn’t win a conference title. I think if you fire fleck you are either going to replace him with a known downgrade or a complete unknown. And our success is a bit disappointing the past two years but it’s not so disappointing that I want to downgrade or hire a complete unknown. I would rather hire the unknown as a new OC.
Well, no one can accuse you of not clearly put your hand out on the table. Kudos

Also, the answer is No.

Fleck's agent is not actively looking for other coaching jobs, after last night.


As we do -- as the internet/Twittersphere does -- we will have turned on a dime from talking about firing him to scouting out locations for his statue.

Carry on!

You don't get a statue for being mediocre and never winning Floyd.
I hope Fleck can rise above.

LOL. you're kidding right. his recruits haven't won a game against a team with a winning record. keep drinking the kool aid. If he is such great recruiter how can you explain this year's results. These are ALL his kids that he recruited and coached up. So which is it...he sucks at recruiting or sucks at development? All the skill players he has had except for this year, were already on campus when he took the job.
They beat Wisconsin in 2021 who had a winning record.
