Hard to believe we are here but B1G Media days are upon us. It’s time to buckle up because actual football will be played in a few short weeks. For possibly the first time ever, the media contingent in Chicago actually gathered around the Gopher’s head coach to hear what he had to say. PJ Fleck did PJ Fleck things and left many in awe at his energy. Let’s take our first Stroll Through Twitterland of the 2017 season to see what people had to say about PJ Fleck and the Gophers.
For those new to The Daily Gopher and for our long-time readers, here is a quick-refresher course on what the Stroll Through Twitterland is all about. Each week of the football season, I will take a Stroll Through Twitterland to see what people are saying about the Gophers and that weeks game. I’ll gather roughly ten Tweets I feel capture what the overriding sentiments were for the game that week. Some Tweets are funny. Some Tweets are angry. Some Tweets are a reality-check about the Gophers. Please check-in every week and join in the conversation.
Let’s get strolling.
Here are the #hashtags for this week.
He’s not wrong.
#B1G Minnesota coach PJ Fleck is a walking vessel of caffeine.— Lee Barfknecht (@leebeeowh) July 25, 2017
How do you really feel?
it's called "Being PJ Fleck" which is a stretch given that PJ Fleck is so fake he isn't even PJ Fleck.— Andy Schmickle (@GoalieLax) July 20, 2017
Except for that whole 13-0 MAC Championship thing.
PJ Fleck really is 15 years, 30 pounds, a can of dip, and a weaker grasp of the English language away from being Tim Beckman— Bob Zuppke (@BobZuppke) July 25, 2017
Be prepared fans. This season may not go as everyone hopes. But have faith in the vision.
Best thing from PJ Fleck...don't sacrifice what you want down the road for what you want right now!— Kirkland Brown (@CoachKB_7) July 7, 2017

One reason to believe in PJ Fleck: He can captivate a room full of car dealers and supermarket GMs. My story: https://t.co/RbzbSdSIXe— Dennis Dodd (@dennisdoddcbs) July 25, 2017
In actual news...
Fleck said Rhoda and Croft are leading QB competition by Seth Green and Morgan not far behind. Hopes one steps up and shows clear winner— chipscoggins (@chipscoggins) July 25, 2017
Fleck said he would prefer to have one QB and not rotate in a platoon system but he didn't dismiss idea if no one takes job.— chipscoggins (@chipscoggins) July 25, 2017
