Gophers head coach P.J. Fleck has heard his share of criticism in his first year at the helm of Minnesota’s football team.
The reasons are twofold — and maybe more than that — but it comes with the territory of being a big-time college football coach. The first reason he’s heard it from fans and media members is that the Gophers are 1-5 in the Big Ten, a year after the team won 9 games under since-fired coach Tracy Claeys. The second reason he’s hearing about it has nothing to do with what happens on the field, but centers on his high-energy salesmanship.
Whether you’re for him or against him, I think he made some good points on the critics during a recent press conference. Here’s a snippet from that, courtesy of KSTP-TV’s and 1500ESPN contributor Darren Wolfson.
