One of the good thing about top opponents, and a New Year's Bowl game is the chance for the players (WMU) to be evaluated vs. B1G opponents.

There is an old axiom that if a college player can play the NFL will find him and thoroughly evaluate him in games, all-star games, combines, pro days, etc.

And they know how to compensate for lack or surplus talent around him.

Give him a ton of credit, but Fleck was so cheesy 03-lmfao. He knew he was being filmed for that locker room speech so he really spiked up the cheese level! The players really didn't seem to be buying it either.

"You know what trailblazers do............they blaze trails!" haha

Don't get me wrong, would have loved him at EMU as well. We'll see how he does at Minnesota, but I'd be surprised if he ever did any better than the 9 wins their coach put up last year. I think 90% of his success at WMU was him out recruiting the rest of the conference by a wide margin. He simply had that much better players last year. No way he out recruits the Ohio State's, Penn State's, and Michigan's of the Big Ten.

Will be interesting to watch.

I agree completely with you.

The only school which seems to win in the B1G without great, great recruiting is Northwestern.

We'll see if he can out coach Fitzgerald at Northwestern.

Just has to be better than Alex Barrett and Jeremiah Valoaga (both undrafted free agents) and he should make the roster.
