He loudly trumpets this era of CU football as though it was some kind of glory era that earns him a place beside the players from the early 1990s and the 2001 team. During his senior year, he loudly defended Coach Barnett. As soon as the season was over, he loudly went to the media blaming the NCAA for not protecting players (citing the UT game hit that likely reduced his IQ 30 points) and complained about how he and others are used by the big business of college sports without getting paid. He also went on a rampage over Barnett being fired for mediocrity followed by nationally-televised blowouts and an image that was beyond recovery due to the scandal and GB regularly putting his foot in his mouth when speaking to the media about it. Klatt then went into media himself, became the loudest voice criticizing the program, blaming Mike Bohn, and calling for Hawkins to be fired. This turned into him being the loudest voice lobbying for a true Buff to be hired and that this Buff needed to be Jon Embree or Eric Bieniemy (ideally with both on the staff). After that plan resulted in what may have been the worst football season in the history of college football, a need for a complete staff and system overhaul, and recruiting that was no longer gaining any traction with prospects... Klatt has now become the loudest voice attacking Bohn and CU for deciding that Embree was not working out and a change was necessary. Klatt has been a cancer for CU football and it's only going to get worse.
