Another new coach on the schedule for the Hawkeyes.
‘Rowing The Boat’ for the Gophers is PJ Fleck. Fleck is bringing his energetic attitude to the Big Ten, and see if he can swing the power in the Big Ten West to Minneapolis.
The Gophers are lacking at a number of positions while Fleck aims to bring in strong recruiting classes. Floyd of Rosedale has stayed in Iowa City the last 4 out of 5 seasons, and it is always a big-time game for the border rivals.
