He’s just not going to do it. This is who he is. The only risk he took was marrying a stripper.Mo is a dude and I will miss watching him more than any other Gopher player in my lifetime. Fleck coaches not to lose, this works against bad teams - not good teams. The football program is respected. I don’t want a new coach - I want Fleck to grow a pair.
You would think with his record against Iowa that PJ would understand he needs to change if nothing else just for this game. He seems unwilling to do this.I just can’t believe that I watch this cowardly act by Fleck against Iowa every year. Dude be more aggressive one time against these clowns. If you end up losing by two touchdowns at least you fucking tried. I haven’t posted in years but this is my fucking breaking point. Team is better than this.
This! We were driving to at minimum go up 3........fumbleIf we were more aggressive AK probably throws 3 ints. We were running great. Just couldn’t finish.
Yeah it’s not going to change. Yes we can all rationalize that they made a couple plays and we didn’t but this game was lost in the first three quarters by running the most vanilla offense you will ever see throughout the game. Maybe we end up losing by 3 touchdowns but I would prefer to see that then grind Mo into the ground only to have him fumble on carry 72 of the game or whatever it was . Fleck plays an embarrassing brand of football. We aren’t the 1994 Cornhuskers here where we can just hand off to a felon and win by 45 every game.You would think with his record against Iowa that PJ would understand he needs to change if nothing else just for this game. He seems unwilling to do this.
Never beating Iowa is disgusting, but the most worrisome part? I don't see anybody you can point to and say he'll be really good next year in a group of 85 guys, including game changing incoming recruits. This might be the high point for awhile?
That’s honestly ok with me just don’t coach like a coward and beat a crappy Iowa team at home once in a while. Mix in a 9-10 win season every blue moon and that’s great. As is he just isn’t worth the salary he’s paid. This team is boring.I don’t think PJ will ever get it done here. 7-8 wins will be the norm, I fear.
notably, Ferentz let their much-maligned QB throw the ball, which directly led to all of their 13 points. We passed to great effect in early downs. Couldn’t pass in forced downs. Guess which path we chose for the loss?Absolutely SUCKS. You HAVE to win that game...at home, rival having a down year, their QB's middle name is "much-maligned." You HAVE to win that game.
Certainly the schedule is tough and certainly some guys will emerge but it's rare one of those guys emerging is going from anonymous to Heisman chatter. The guys emerging will fill roles. Got no big knockers, no NFL draft buzz guys etc...not even guys who don't live up to the hype....nobody is expected to be "really" good.Well, maybe some people will emerge. A bigger problem is that we have a much tougher schedule next season.
