Did we get lucky?
With Carey taking the Temple job after the early signing period we basically keep all recruits and have an opportunity for the new coach to still get some late offers in by national signing day. Most of the time when a head coach leaves so do many of their recruits, thus leaving that years class weak. NIU got lucky in that regard.

not sure it has much to do with luck. but the early signing period certainly favors football programs more than it does student-athletes.

Leaving December 1st is much worse. Kids would bail. I believe Frazier will get a good one to come in.

Frazier who left the door open for Carey with a tiny buyout fee, 3 weeks after a contract extension?

Hey, Frazier knows what he is doing. With a small buyout it is like putting lipstick on a pig. It closed the deal and now we can get a decent coach.


GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carey is a decent man and coach. I did not like everything that went down (fake punt, no bowl wins, QB issues) but boy I liked more of what he did than what he missed the mark on. I think we got Carey during his learning years, or at least part of them. Coach Carey is a quick study and made decisions on how to get more wins through safe play, it worked. Honestly, it was fun to watch and forever thankful for the BYU win, that made life easier here in Utah for some of us heathens. Many great wins for the Huskies but beating Nebraska and BYU, those are ones I am cherishing.

Didn't they say it was a 800k buyout and a potential home and home? 'tiny'?

Kids that sign with a school and then there is a coaching change, are normally granted a release and can sign somewhere else. That said, it doesn't happen that often and most kids pick a school because of the University itself and not just because of a coach.
