Of course Beckman turned out to be a complete idiot.

Implemented the foundation of the current program and made some pretty good staff hires while at UT. Program made consistent improvement under Coach Beckman. Tim's final season at Toledo(9-4), Rockets had a 5 point loss @OSU, 3 point@The "Cuse, and the 63-60 loss to NIU that was the tie-breaker for the MAC West berth in the MACC.

Agree that Beckman should be recognized for what he did to turn the program around and get it back on track both on and off the field---it was no small feat. Still I think that is appropriate that in defining his last season you chose three specific games that Toledo could have won but actually lost----had the Rockets managed to win either tOSU or the NIU game, we would have an entirely different perspective on that entire season.

Beckman raised the program from the depths of despair to near the summit, but somehow he just could never quite get over the top to grab that brass ring which is kind of the same way I feel about Campbell except he inherited a program in much better shape than did Beckman.

Haven't seen it mentioned, but his Father is Ben Mitchell (big Funk)...played OG for the Rockets 1990 championship team...awesome to see him commit...hope he sticks with us.

Alright! Nice. Isn't this what some schools call a "legacy" commit?
