Seems like a guy that likely practiced and filled a scout team and made others better. They get 85 scholarships a year and less than 50 see the field. There are about 105 total on the team. Fleck tries to fill spots of need and not all will be world beaters.

Yep. Competitive roster on a good team and a top 5 defense. Not everyone is going to walk in and start.

Also - unless I have real problems counting, the Gophers are currently over the 85-player limit. I think - could be wrong - that they "need" another 3 or 4 players to transfer/retire.

so when the Gophs are still adding people through the portal, my spidey sense tells me that Fleck knows something I don't - and there will be more 'departures' before Spring practice begins.

there is a Darwinian element to college football. It is the survival of the fittest, and sometimes the herd needs to be culled.

Swelna is already doing the counting for us all...... :)


And you are correct that in the end the numbers always seem to work out correctly.

Don’t you guys get it?? That roster spot could have been filled by someone like Bryce Young or Will Anderson! Instead, we used it on a backup?? Blasphemous, if you ask me.
