Fleck said the ESPNU show "Being P.J. Fleck," which starts next week, is a chance to "bring national exposure" to Gophers football. Said coaches are expected to promote their programs. But he said he's also not sure what to expect with the show. "I don't know if it's going to be like the Kardashians or tamer."
