Luke Fickell was surprised when he was told that Urban Meyer said that Curtis Grant was the starting middle linebacker.
Where did you get that impression? I don't recall reading or hearing that anywhere.
I can vividly picture this thanks to the fact that we saw Fick's surprised face MANY times during the '11 season.
Not my impression. Directly from Fickell while being interviewed.
Made up bS.com
Too logical, too obvious, too simple, therefore unacceptable to this board...
Well fickell maybe needs to trust in urban. He's either doing this for his confidence or because he believes that he's the beer man for the job.
beer man for the Job... If the football gods chiselled a MLB it would look like Curtis Grant.. to bad they forgot confidence and instincts and leadership qualities.
Look at Shazier's leadership showing all over the place. even when he was playing bad and not tackling well, he held himself accountable. While Grant was feeling sorry for himself he didn't play as a frosh.
you would shit your pants also .. if you are the Head Coach of Ohio State seemingly over-night..
You can't ask " can this be true" and not provide evidence...
Evidence. You want evidence with all of the bullshit that is spewed on this board? :)
The O-Zone team has multiple quotes from the assistant coaches. Good read.
This is one of them:

I would've exceeded winning six games.
Just because you don't like what is stated it doesn't mean it is made-up. Time to become a mature adult.
What D-1 school do you coach again ? .. nick Saban is that you ?
yeah right , did you watch 2012 ..our 12-0 season .. how many of those games did we put away by the 2nd Qtr or 1 qtr where we didn't even have to fight for a W.. imagine that with a frosh qb , suspended players and scandal ..

Still didn't see a quote....
Good point. Need more info. Maybe he just didn't think it was going to be announced.
Luke likes to joke around I said it sounds like shazier at the will and he said "who said that? Are you saying that?" I might have video of the grant comment will post later today
Follow me on Twitter @SteveHelwagen
I did not get it on video. I just heard the audio.
Fickell remarked something to the effect of "you're privy to something that we discussed privately" joking with the reporter that he had a scoop, when it was readily apparent that Grant has become the MLB starter
For as much bashing as Fickell received, he deserves equal praise for how the defense played the second half of the year.
