Where Should We Put PJ’s Statue; Gophers Bring Axe Back to MN

Sorry… I just wrote an article this morning that included thoughts about not letting guys like Patrick Reusse get to Gopher Fans and Fleck apologists but when the Gophers beat the fuck out of the Wisconsin Badgers tonight while you eat and drink beer at Buffalo Wild Wings, articles like this can get out of hand.

I’m still in a state of shock. I admitted it to Toups, while we watched the game together and threw a few beers back, but while I was defending PJ Fleck and writing an article about him beating Wisconsin earlier this morning, honest Eric Strack would admit that I didn’t really see this upset coming. Not that I didn’t think Wisconsin was beatable like I wrote, because I did, but I just expected Minnesota to be Minnesota.

But Minnesota wasn’t Minnesota. And we can thank PJ for that. I wish I were with Reusse so I could see him shove that turkey leg up his ass.

But at the end of the day, I am just glad that the offseason won’t be filled with my articles and Twitter arguments about why PJ Fleck is still the right guy for this job. Good luck arguing that we should fire the coach after two seasons where he, in his second year, beat Wisconsin in Camp Randall and finished 6-6 with a bowl game.

The future is bright… because of PJ.
