Gophers almost literally had the easiest schedule imaginable. Look at who they beat to get those 8 regular season wins. No one of note. WSU was a nice win, but nothing that gives you a lot of optimism for the future, particularly when you factor in the horrible recruiting. Then throw in the off the field fiasco that has blemished the school. I think it's a good time to move on.
Oh yeah...I know they've got the easy schedule and it's a bit of a house of cards.
Wonder if part of the slumping ticket sales was because of that schedule as well.
Just am saying if it isn't Fleck, I know that Miles or Kelly may put butts in the seats (not sure either would come) but I feel like both would have a foot out the door or Miles may use it as a twilight job for his career.
Anyways, interested to see who it is but if it's not Fleck, I totally understand the firing, but you're treading in dangerous waters with a bunch of guys transferring possibly and almost coaches not wanting to take that on. I think Fleck could turn it around quickly but some decent, but not a name hire could find trouble.
