Man i wish the 2 JB's were here this year,so we could see some balls thrown in the stands!!
That was the biggest coaching mistake in OSU history allowing JB to play QB over braxton.
I miss Jim Heacock
Definitely can't blame the offense, especially when you consider the few "three and outs" the defense has produced. Can't be letting the opposing offense take 5 or 6 minutes off the clock everytime they have the ball. Also, seldom has our offense received the ball inside the fifty. Too many long drives, though when they're in sync, it doesn't take long to score.
Whatever your concerns about the performance of the defense the first four games calling the defensive coaches incompetent is just ridiculous. Incompetent implies lacking ability or qualification for a task. Clearly some very competent coaches (Meyer, Tressel and Heacock) all believed that Fickell was up to the task. You could have an argument in Vrabel but even that evaluation is questionable because of the short time period he's had to coach the team.
Seems to me urban thinks the defensive coaches are doing just fine.
That's the way it sounded to me listening to the presser
Good days, bad days --- always a Buckeye. Time to begin the assault on the 2014 BCS National Championship
Last nights game was another example of Fickell refusing to play freshman. He did this last year as HC when he would not start Braxton from day one when it was clear he was the better QB and again this year as Defensive coordinator he refuses to play stud freshman who are no worse then Storm Klein or Boren imo.
Fickell is a good recruiter but not much of a coach.
