P.J. Fleck is only 32 and entering his first season as Western Michigan's coach. To say he's off to a curious start is an understatement.
First there is the team's slogan — "Row Your Boat." Fleck is featured in the team's poster holding an oar with the slogan, but that's just a start. He has wooden, boat-shaped business cards. He has helmet stickers of oars for his players. He created a “Row the Boat” dance.
On Tuesday night, he posted a photo on his twitter account that suggested his staff was about to walk barefoot across a bed of hot coals. Of course the last time someone tried that stunt it didn't end well. Perhaps Fleck has been to one too many Tony Robbins' motivational events.
