CTT got the commit, but I think technically CLF signed him. Regardless it's a fair point that people often overlook about a lot of our talent this year and last.
With that being the case, if Fickell came here a bit earlier maybe we would have kept Jeremy Larkin. A recruit that Tubs "had" but didn't bother to contact for the entire academic year up to his decommitment.

Agree, recruiting is more than just securing a commitment. Fickell was able to flip a commit or two from other schools on signing day as well.

Maybe Tubs (with more effort) or Fickell (if he was here) could have kept him, but I thought the word at the time was that Larkin was always hoping for that Northwestern offer for whatever reason. And it probably wasn't a factor, but it's worth noting that Tubs got a commit from Doaks the week after Larkin. Unfortunately, Larkin's football career is over as you probably know, but all in all I think it's worked out pretty well for UC.


Our recent success has had a lot of help from CTT players. It sure looks like CLF is a much better motivator.

It is also interesting that it Fick a year to fix what was wrong internally. How of it is the players buying into Fick’s staff and system?

Oops did I say that outloud?
Taylor turned Gunner Kiel into Chaz Anderson...so I'm not super sure that's a high bar 03-lmfao

Taylor was our OC so not exactly an apples to apples comparison. I think Taylor has zero business being an NFL head coach based on his resume but I don't blame him much for his year here. That culture was completely toxic before he got here.

And Taylor didn't ruin Kiel, he was regressing long before Taylor. Kiels problem was Kiel.

Chazz never became a really good QB but he was an outstanding person. He graduated UC before a Graduate year at Buffalo. He was tapped by Sigma Sigma Honary before transferring.

Not a commentary on the man...just the football ability.
