Big Ten football power rankings after spring portal closes: Did Nittany Lions get better?

Ohio State and Oregon loaded up with transfer portal additions this offseason and have separated themselves in the new Big Ten as the top two contenders. So, where do James Franklin and the Penn State Nittany Lions stand?

. Head Coach: PJ Fleck. . 15. 487. Minnesota. . Last Year: 6-7 Quick Lane Bowl W. team.

Key losses: Athan Kaliakmanis, Tyler Nubin Key additions: Max Brosmer, Jaxon Howard, Tyler Williams

Some key losses are actually positives for the team. As a sophomore, Athan Kaliakmanis completed just 53.1% of his passes for 1,838 yards with 14 touchdowns to nine interceptions. Minnesota’s offense averaged just 20.9 points a game and finished 126th in passing offense. 

Transfer quarterback Max Brosmer from New Hampshire will bring a new dynamic element for the Golden Gophers, but the rest of the roster just isn't talented enough to be excited about PJ Fleck’s team. 

It seems like things have started to go stale for Fleck at Minnesota and after this season both parties could need a change.
