He had 3 PAC12 head jobs! He left Colorado in a much worse situation than he found it in. Frankly, he left Boulder with absolutely zero on the QB depth chart. Zero. Yet he still carried the moniker "quarterback guru" when he was named the UCLA head coach? Did he improve the Raven's QB play? no Did the UW program improve or degrade during his time? I wrote a pretty long summary of this when he got the UCLA job. Frankly, I hold Rick accountable for most of CU's issues in football today. We went from national championship to undisciplined football. He left behind some talent from his first few recruiting classes, (enough for 2001 to happen), but the talent in his younger classes was less than national championship caliber. Was that a recruiting issue? No - more of a development issue. Same issue he had at UW and UCLA. Good classes that never developed. That was a definite trend. He gave us Katie Hnida. He gave us the complete lack of discipline that was evident during the Rick years - the same lack of discipline that yielded the scandal that wasn't.... Name the QB that Rick recruited to CU who played the most downs of football after he left! That's an awfully ugly picture. Neuheisel - program killer. He did less with more than anyone until Dan Hawkins. And I'm not sure he didn't eclipse Dan. National title to Katie Hnida. That's Rick's legacy here boys.
