    Great news for Minnesota but it just keeps getting worse for Western Michigan. Lose your prized head coach then lose a good chunk of your recruiting class immediately after. Ouch!

    The perils of MAC success. Just think of the coaching legends that got their start at Miami University alone.

    That is a huge loss for W Mich this late in the recruiting game to lose your best recruits.

    I thought it was interesting after their bowl game Fleck said he had no plans whatsoever going anywhere. That didn't take long. No problem with him moving up but a coach don't have to be so emphatic and be gone in less than a week.imo

    Sometimes a coach truly doesn't have any plans to leave, and then suddenly a job they want opens. You can't expect a coach to say currently I am not going anywhere, but if the right job opens up I will leave. You can't say no comment either if asked, because that could be used against you too. A coach is pretty much in a no win situation when they start getting asked about other jobs, and you basically have to hide the truth in your answers.
