I spoke to a source in the USC university administration yesterday who told me an offer sheet was presented to Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell.
“His wife said no,” the source said. “And that was the end of it. But he was the first choice early on. Carol Folt approved. They had a contract prepared. It was all set if he approved. Or if she approved.”
If Fickell’s wife said yes, Lincoln Riley might be at LSU today.
