Minnesota finished off 2021 with a 9-4 record after going 3-4 in 2020. While the offense performed at a poor level and the team was handed several injuries, Minnesota continued to fight and compete. Even with a home loss to 4-8 Bowling Green, PJ Fleck and his Gophers continued to row the boat. Despite returning plenty of production from 2021 (80% of their 2021 offensive production) and upgrading their offensive coordinator position, Minnesota is not being given much attention. PJ Fleck has an opportunity to win big and improve on offense in 2022, as he brings back QB Tanner Morgan, RBs Mohamed Ibrahim and Trey Potts, and C John Michael-Schmitz. Knowing the coach that PJ Fleck is, I can only imagine how good this team can be in 2022. Fleck is 23-10 in his last three seasons (including a weird 2020 season) and is 3-5 against ranked opponents in that time frame. With inferior talent and resources compared to many Big Ten schools, the job he has done at Minnesota is impressive.
