Shit, dude, everybody knows that commitment is a one-way street.

It’s amazing how guys like Fleck expect to be taken seriously.

  1. I’m sure he would say that he’s offering guys who are committed to Central Michigan a chance to play in the B1G as opposed to the MAC. Comments like these once again should remind everyone at the end of the day these are overpaid PE teachers.

      Do you not hold PE teachers in high regard?

        I’m all for physical health and think we should have more recess at school, but I’d say teaching people how to play games is easier and of less societal value than teaching biology, math, writing and history.

          Is that really what we do in schools these days? We re-write history when it suits certain people, computers and Alexa give us answers to questions when asked, POS systems tell people how much change they get back, etc., and we only tolerate thinking that fits the PC crowd’s thinking.

          Fleck ain’t wrong, we do have serious issues in our society, and allowing player’s to find the easiest path to success isn’t teaching them the right example in preparation for life after college. Oh, that’s right, how could he know when he has changed jobs as he advanced up the ladder.

            Back when I was in school……. Right, today’s high school and college students are so entitled.

            Jesus fucking christ, you never cease to surpass my expectations for just how full of shit you are. Honestly, I wish we could get you and PJ Fleck and everyone else like you and your “problem with society” crowd and let you go settle on an island and run “society” as you imagine it should be. I imagine that would be a short experiment.

              Agree, ChiliDawg. Wouldn’t the players say that they too are seeking to advance up the ladder? Yet, their doing it equates to something wrong with society?

              I’ll tell you what’s wrong with society: Minnesota’s color scheme and PJ Fleck’s insistence on wearing it with a tie and quarter zip. Those are things I won’t be able to unsee today.

        • Clarify … PE teachers serve a purpose to teach kids to take care of themselves.

            Back in the day, PE used to be mandatory. Now, as my kids told me, it’s an optional thing. It’s really no coincidence that the rise of obesity in kids as well as kids now getting adult-onset diabetes falls right in the time frame of PE becoming an ‘optional’ class.

            • Our kids had to take a semester of PE along with a semester of health. The PE requirement could be met by playing a sport or being in the marching band.

              You still have to get 1 PE credit to graduate from UGA (may be a BOR requirement).

    Why does it seem like it’s the places that suck establish these “rules?”

    I mean I can’t blame them but essentially they’re saying: you’ll probably like another place better.

    Why can’t they just say: “if you’re still visiting we’re still recruiting your position?” That’s certainly what Nick and Kirby do.

    What’s he gonna do if a kid goes somewhere else? If he had some stud commit, and that kid goes to visit tOSU, does he revoke the scholarship offer? I’d love to see that happen.

    Or what if some kid says, “Okay coach I’m committed, but you can’t go interview for a job anywhere else for the next 4 years. You’ve gotta be all-in on me.”

      Great point…would love to hear the hypocrisy if he were to get another gig before being fired a Minn.

      On the other hand, you’ve got to give him credit for locking-down kids who have no other options and freeing-up his summer from having to baby-sit verbal commits.

    Fleck had six jobs in nine years. One of which he resigned after just one day. Literally. One day. And the problem is the kids de-committing?

    That’s totally unfair to say PJ hasn’t committed. He clearly committed to the institutions with whom he’s signed contracts. He has just chosen to have a lifetime membership to the Coach’s Transfer Portal.

    Yes, Fleck’s comments are stupid/tone deaf. But he did kick Tech’s ass last December on the Genius’ glorious final game, so that’s reason enough for me to like the guy.
