In 2016, P.J. Fleck went 2-1 against the B1G (wins at Northwestern, Illinois before a loss to Wisconsin in the Cotton Bowl). In 2017, as the new leader of the Minnesota football program, he’ll have the chance to see if he can maintain, or even improve that 67% winning percentage in the league.
According to official statements issued by both schools, Fleck now leaves his post at Western Michigan to become the next Head Minnesota football coach. From an entertainment value stand point, this is an upgrade so tremendous that it’s difficult to put into words.Follow paulmbanks
