Not normal: PJ Fleck and staff walk on fire
Posted by: Pete Roussel on Tuesday July 30, 2013
Last week, Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin jumped off a cliff.
The video went viral, and even appeared on ESPN’s College Football LIVE.
It’s a little thing that resonates with recruits and fans.
Now, Western Michigan head coach PJ Fleck has joined the fun. But he’s not the only one. According to Fleck’s twitter feed, “WMU Football staff gonna walk on fire in 5 min!! Changing the way we think!!! RTB.”
Since becoming the head coach at Western Michigan, Fleck has single-handedly marketed himself and brought valuable attention to Western Michigan football.
His motivational rants have fired up college football fans, and recruits have taken notice. The Broncos have 27 commitments, by far the most of any non-BCS program.
The brave men joining Fleck in the walk on fire tonight include Kirk Ciarrocca, Ed Pinkham, Luke Getsy, Brian Callahan, Bill Kenney, JB Gibboney, Charles Huff, Tim McGarigle, and Vinson Reynolds.
Or so I think.
Good luck, men.
We now have video of the fire, as well as coaches walking on glass and doing some other bonding activities. This is intense.
