CHICAGO - Minnesota Gophers head football coach PJ Fleck got a rude welcome to Big Ten Media Day.

Honestly, it wasn't that bad and he seemed to roll with the online criticism well coming up with some "elite" responses.

As part of the Big Ten Network's coverage, Fleck agreed to read some mean tweets.

"PJ Fleck hasn't coached one game yet and I already can't stand him," one person wrote. "I can't stand PJ Fleck. No one should be that energetic," another tweet said.

The new @GopherFootball coach reads some of the mean ones here.
