Weird timing. This hurts.
Damn that sucks, I wouldn’t have been mad if he started over Otemewo, very likely would’ve started next year. Not sure Fleck hits the portal or not though, there is depth there, but not tons of game experience.Wow. That hurts.
Best wishes for him, but odd timing.
PJ will be hitting the portal for D-line depth.
Perhaps. However I would think it would depend upon the situation. I realize that Fleck is about loyalty, hard work, family etc. Somewhere there is a line though.Shit. Wanted him to stick around the whole time. Whyever he's doing it I bet these coaches will do everything they can to help him. FAMILY even when that family wants something better for themselves. Hopefully he has a good plan moving forward.
What I meant by that, is it doesn't look like it's about playing time, and (my very limited access into the program) hasn't shown any charachter differences. I hope it is something like getting closer to home. If that's the case they would help him, I think. Only a guess. The coaching community is probably pretty tight knit (with some obvious exceptions) and a good word from the right person could help a young man and improve the reputation of that coaching staff.Perhaps. However I would think it would depend upon the situation. I realize that Fleck is about loyalty, hard work, family etc. Somewhere there is a line though.
High school coaches are often the conduits in this situation. Perfectly within the rules.I don’t think teams are “allowed” to recruit players on other rosters, but seems crazy to enter the portal if you didn’t have a good idea of your possible landing spots. I’m sure there is plenty of talk that isn’t supposed to happen.
Who knows what is driving this? but this is the new normal in college sports. Players will transfer for all kinds of reasons: looking for playing time - issues with coaches or teammates - family issues - academic issues - girlfriend issues.
fans are just going to have to live with this.
That puts a whole different spin on it. I didn't think of that. But like U2Gopher said, I hope there isn't a personal reason behind it.
Sure. That makes great sense if we are talking about a low tier bowl game. But he played yesterday, and then decides he's not going to do one more week? Mrs. Anderson must put on a mean Thanksgiving dinner.Wants to be home for the Holidays, get offer and sign in December.
You would have thought the "new normal" in terms of transferring out would have waited a week. I've always been a supporter of the players having more flexibility and being able to make money of their likeness but if he quit the Gophers on the Sunday before our final game against a rival with a potential Big 10 championship on the line then he lacks any loyalty, personal responsibility, or any kind of personal code.Shocking, kids want more from college than just starting and playing time. Good luck to him. Welcome to the new normal. #ROW
