Should have just ended your post after “I’m out.”I’m out. Not a Wisconsin fan. Reading comprehension is not a strong point for a lot of people on this board. My point is getting Fickelll was a big swing for Wisc. The Wisc brain trust realized they needed to change the identity of the program for what’s coming in the new Big10. If they wanted to be a slightly above average team they would have stayed the course like Minnesota. A couple things about some misinformation. Fickell was handed the reins ar OSU with a bowl ban and reduction in scholarships. Meyer was already to take over. Not ideal circumstances. Fickell had an undefeated team go to the playoff. Fleck has never won a Big 10 championship. WMU in the Mac was never at the level of UC. My posts basically say that Minnesota needs to make a bold move if they expect to move up. A nice goal would to beat at least one of Big 10 east powers every once in a while. Winning 6 bowls in a row against soft competition is mental masturbation for the row the boat crowd. In a year from now, no one will care if you won the Bad Boy Mowers Bowl whatever that is. Excuse me for wanting better for the Gophers. With Fleck the Gophers have hit their ceiling.
