Tommy Tuberville Is Letting CeCe Jefferson Wander Around With The AAC Championship Trophy

Many people thought it was a joke that CeCe Jefferson was thinking about visiting the Bearcats. But the big five star defensive end is in Cincinnati and seems to be having a good time.

The key tactic for Tommy Tuberville in his quest to land CeCe Jefferson? Letting him wander around with the American Athletic Conference championship trophy. To wit, here is Jefferson is Tommy Tuberville's office holding the AAC trophy while wearing four of the Bearcats conference and bowl championship rings. Rings which Tubs clearly borrowed because he was not here for any of them.

And here is Jefferson four hours later just hugging the trophy at what looks to my well trained eye like a hotel conference center lobby. Kingsgate perhaps?

One would presume that CeCe Jefferson gets to take the trophy with him to dinner with the coaching staff, out to whatever party he goes to with his chaperone. One gets the feeling that if it wasn't an NCAA violation Tubs would let CeCe take the trophy home with him to Florida.

Its a bold strategy Cotton, lets see if it pays off.
