PJ Fleck
 
Legit.
Too bad he will never be at ND.

I’m not saying he would or would not succeed at ND (or another major program) but as much as the “Row the Boat” excitement can rally a fanbase & players, when he eventually falls short of expectations, the blowback is that much louder. He hasn’t really had to deal w/ that on a national level. I don’t think he’d personally be adversely affected but can you imagine ND fans after losing to a Pitt or Navy and the “Row the Boat” memes start going viral?

What is "row the boat"? I must've missed something?

If you don't know "Row the Boat" than you have no idea who PJ Fleck is...that has been his tagline since he was at Western Michigan.

Thank you for the clarification. Very few were following Fleck while he was at Western Michigan, that's how an up and comer becomes an up and comer, they gradually ascend the ranks. I don't need to have watched him at Western Michigan to know that he's a better coach than BK, at present time.

Always said no F’ing way on Urban, but PJ would be an instant injection of energy and passion.

He trademarked "Row the Boat" and brought it to Minnesota and continues to use it today. If you've watched him THIS year than you should know the tagline. Minnesota actually had to pay Western Michigan to be able to continue using the tagline
