Gently Down The Stream


P.J. Fleck is here to turn the Gopher football team into a contender and he won’t stop rowing until it happens.
The energy Coach Fleck exudes is something else. Some find it annoying while others, more importantly, his players, appear to be addicted and attached to every single word he says.
Nothing against Coach Kill, but this is refreshing.
I’ll be the first to admit, I wanted a “big” name coach for this team. When rumors were flying about Les Miles coming here, I couldn’t have been happier. The cache that his name carries could have potentially landed us some highly sought after recruits.
I couldn’t have been more wrong. Coach Fleck has a top 20 class and appears to be able to get the recruits past Gopher coaches had no shot at.
P.J. Fleck is miles ahead of Les at this point in his career and Gopher Nation should be happier than they have been in a long time knowing he is leading their favorite college football team.
Sure, that statement could come back to bite me in the ass, but I’m on board with my ore in hand and ready to row!
We will get our first look at the team this Thursday at 6pm against Buffalo.
Word of advice, keep your life jacket handy. If the Gophers don’t win, this stream might become some rough rapids pretty damn quick.
