    yall are way too focused on the 5-0
    forget the 5-0
    2017 5-7
    2018 7-6
    2019 5-0 [probably finish 9-4?]

    but its the way the team looks and the excitement he is building up there
    also love the idea of 'sunday night football'

    according to rivals:
    team recruiting ratings
    2018 -> 43
    2019 -> 41
    2020 -> 29
    2021 -> 17

    Look at Kansas Orange Bowl season. They started out 5-0 and unranked. They basically played one good team that year and that was Missouri. Kansas State was decent that year.

    and the slogan is 'row the boat ski u mah'

    its one continuous phrase

    and actually fits because the origin of ski u mah was from canoe races on Lake Minnetonka which just so happens to be the lake where PJ Fleck just bought a house.

    you cant stop this train haters

    pj fleck and minnesota football are destiny

    I couldn't care less about a guy named PJ. But I do hope they crush baby brother this year.

    Agree with both of the above. He seems really slimy but you can only play who is in front of you. In another thread there was talk of how important being ranked is to get exposure - well his team is now ranked (albeit unjustified) and he will use that to his advantage. For Minnesota if they win 8 games that would be the next step in the progression of his program - I hope at some point it all unravels on him because he seems to be so phony.

    The teams they've played are 11-13, if you take out SDSU it's 7-12. There's a pretty legit argument that the best team they'll play will be SDSU until November. When two bad teams play one of them gets a win, and Minnesota has been winning those coin flips.

    They'll probably lose to Nebraska or Maryland, but if not we'll find out if they're a result of an awful division or if they're actually good.

    No, FCS and division 2 are not the same thing.

    The best FCS teams are better than lots of FBS teams, including several power 5 teams. There's obviously not a lot of data points, but year after year the likes of NDSU, SDSU, UNI, James Madison and others are ranked above the worst few P5 teams in power rankings. Not to mention NDSU and James Madison have a lot more NFL guys than the likes of ISU, Minnesota, TCU and other solid P5 teams. There are enough under the radar guys and transfers that want to be eligible immediately to make these teams good. Factor in the typical super bowl factor FCS teams have, and you get plenty of upsets.

    With that said, Minnesota got really lucky against SDSU and they were fortunate to escape with these wins. They have played a soft schedule, and that's going to continue. Nebraska and Northwestern aren't good football teams. I'm not so sure Martinez being out is a big negative over Vedral. Martinez is a turnover machine and has really regressed.

    I don't think it can be overstated just how bad Rutgers is. Any FBS coach that loses to Rutgers this year should be fired on the spot. Worst P5 team of all time possibly. Last years Kansas dumpster fire completely dismantled Rutgers, and this years team might be worse.

    It used to be called Division 2 and they changed it to FCS.

    It used to by 1-A (FBS) and 1-AA (FCS). D2 has always been a separate thing.

    Some people really should stop commenting on sports. Especially when they literally 'know nothing'. JFC.

    Not that I am unhappy by any stretch of the imagination with Campbell but I wanted PJ Fleck after that Western Michigan year so bad.

    No, Division 2 has always been Division 2. FCS used to be called Division 1-AA, while FBS used to be Division 1. Now they are all "division 1" but are split by FBS and FCS.
