Happy Fleck Friday everyone!
Confused reader: "What the heck is Fleck Friday?"
Coach Fleck is known for wearing a dress shirt and tie underneath a team jacket or windbreaker. Often, this is combined with an enthusiastic thumbs up. (He is also known for wearing really sweet socks, but that’s not part of the #FleckFriday thing).

"What does Coach Fleck’s love of sweet jackets, nice ties, and Roger Ebert impersonations have to do with Friday?"
It’s all about alliteration and having fun. Last week the @GopherSports staff in charge of the @MinnesotaFootball account were
on point on fleek. They decided to combine the classic Fleck visage with the best of the workweek to create #FleckFriday. The goal? To get people dressing up like Fleck, because why the heck not?
"People are doing this?"
You betcha. To wit:
We at TDG are proud to support this ELITE endeavor.
"How do I participate in #FleckFriday?"
It’s easy! All you need are the following:
Wear the shirt, tie, and jacket/pullover/windbreaker with a smile on your face and a thumbs up for the world and you’re all set. You get extra credit if you wear Fleck worthy happy socks.
Seriously folks. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Join the elite #FleckFriday movement now.
