What's the appeal of Minnesota to Fleck?

It's not too far from W Michigan if you go up around the U.P.  Get a U-Haul and a couple of guys to help, his moving expenses would probably be pretty cheap.

Fleck has only ever coached in that B1G area, basically. Not a better B1G opening up for a while, looks like.
He can recruit and compete in that division.

And triple his salary. Hell, Gophers were 9-4 this year as is. In that division it's possible they can reach the title game if their schedule misses the heavys from the other side.

That should tell you all you need to know about the state of the program.

how far has basketball fallen that the big argument is whether or not we'd deserve to be in the tournament if we win 24 games.  the standard ought to be a #5 seed or higher every year.  that's equivalent of a top 20 program.  a sub-standard year now and then due to attrition, a guy not panning out, or an injury is totally understandable.  those should be your #8 or #9 seed years, or god forbid you actually miss the tournament that has 32 at-large bids to hand out to the top 37-40 teams that don't win their conference and get in automatically.

i don't think that's a stupidly high expectation.  historically we are a top 20 program overall, we should expect a coach to maintain the status quo.

After that 56-3 beatdown by Auburn Saturday he will be known only as Bert until he wins an SEC title.  That is the only way he gets back in teh good graces enough to be called by the name his momma gave him.

It's not a high expectation historically but it is higher than what our program has produced in 20+ years. Expecting a coach to perform at a standard that hasn't been hit consistently years before he got here is a bit unfair, wouldn't you think?

If this team gets 24 wins they will make the tournament. Being a 8 or 9 seed isn't that disappointing considering the current landscape of college basketball especially in the SEC.

Don't waste your time with the mouth breathers.

You do realize the current players have never seen an Arkansas basketball program that came ANYWHERE near what you just typed, in the lives?

a student of mine told me that his mom attended her 20th HS reunion the same weekend I did last fall.   :suicide:
