re: QB situation at Minnesota is really tough for PJ Fleck - hoopsgalore
[quote]The dearth of walkons doesn't matter much.[/quote] I've been referring to the post saying that Minnesota can have Wisconsin-type success. First, that is easier said than done since Wisconsin has been playing Top 10 football for awhile (one of seven programs with 100+ wins over the last de...

[quote]same with the D supposedly being horrendous. [/quote] Jerry Kill and Tracy Claeys left Minnesota in OK shape on defense. They weren't bad last season, ranking No. 29 in Total Defense and No. 38 in Scoring Defense, though they got shredded by Northwestern and Wisconsin in the final two gam...

[quote]Neither does Minnesota fwiw They do have division 2 schools, though[/quote] Pointed out three of those schools that have the capability to extend scholarships. In addition, you have the four Dakota schools that combine near 100 players from Minnesota on their roster. NDSU and UND, in...

re: QB situation at Minnesota is really tough for PJ Fleck - hoopsgalore
[quote]Iowa who rolls out great seasons every couple of years[/quote] "Every couple of years" is being extremely generous. Since Kirk Ferentz's three-year run of 10+ wins over 15 years ago, Iowa has just two seasons of 10+ wins. Once every several years would be a bit more accurate. These days...

[quote]It's not like you guys recruit tons of top end kids or pay a lot to retain coaches.[/quote] Wisconsin does not have another FBS or FCS program in-state. These Wisconsin kids grow up rooting for the Badgers. Many of those that come to Madison as a PWO turn down other FCS and MAC offers be...

re: QB situation at Minnesota is really tough for PJ Fleck - hoopsgalore
[quote]I think they can have Wisconsin success under the right circumstances.[/quote] Developmental programs that expect better always point to Wisconsin: "If they can do it, we can, too." Sure, under the right circumstances, it could happen, but each passing year that it doesn't happen, Wiscons...

[quote]Wisky TOO high.[/quote] Think you could push Ohio State and Washington up to No. 4 and No. 5 and Wisconsin down to No. 6. ETA: speaking of Wisconsin, I think they can expect to move forward without Quintez Cephus. Three-month initial investigation has led to formal sexual assault charge...
