Fickell starting Klien at middle linebacker says it all!! This is the same clueless wonder that started Joe Bauserman over Braxton Miller.... AND KEPT DOING IT GAME AFTER GAME!!! He has this defense playing with no fundamentals, no direction and NO HEART!! He has NO CLUE when it comes to personal decisions.
Fickel needs to go. I've seen him as a pathetic head coach for 13 games and now 4 PATHETIC games against inferior talent. The defense is getting WORSE!!! And if this is all Withers has...he can hold onto an anchor and walk the plank too!!
We almost lost to U-FUCKING-AB!!! Heads need to roll! 12-0??? Are you kidding me??? This team is going to get SMOKED the next two weeks! Don't tell me Michigan State and Nebraska aren't that good.... they are light years ahead of UAB and Cal!!!
WE. ARE. TERRIBLE. And with this much talent.....
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
Yup he has to go.
he shouldnt be incharge anywhere in college. let alone Ohio State.
Unless Klein starts throwing himself 30 yards out if bounds for no reason, he is not Joe Bauserman.

I guess experience & no talent beats out no experience & talent... Fick has to play the cards he is dealt. Don't think Urban doesn't have a say in d personnel.
It is embarrassing that we actually start Storm Klein. He is absolutely horrible and would not start on any team in the Big 10, period. We can make excuses and fool ourselves but if we dont have the bench strength to displace him we are in sad shape. He is at best a special teamer. Put the youngsters out there and let them play.
There is absolutely no point in playing Storm Klein. None. He contributes nothing, and he's not going to get better. Is Curtis Grant so bad he can't take even one snap?
Inexcusable personnel decisions, just like last year.
Aren't pretty much all our linebackers not named Shazier terrible?
He has experience and toughness, let him be and give the kid a chance to help the team.
Sabino was much better this week than last week. Klein is the one who is horribly overmatched in every sense of the word. He doesn't belong out there as an athlete, a linebacker or even at the most elemental level as a football player.
They cannot start Grant or Klein against MSU. They have to come with different personnel and scheme. No matter what they do, they cannot have statues at LB squatting motionless 5 yards off the LOS 5 seconds before the snap. Give me an unpredictable pre snap alignment with active LBs next week...make the QB and OC think...provide uncertainty...and put tacklers at LB. Calling Connor Crowell. Calling Joshua Perry.
Storm Klein= garbage
Apparently... we have zero hope!!!!
The title of this thread is an insult to Joe Bauserman.
I agree. Had seats on the 50 yard line last week in C deck, you could focus on someone like Klein and see the whole play, he did nothing but occassionally pile on piles when the tackle was made.
He is slow as a two legged mule and has no lateral quickness at all, stiff as a board. Not physical and he cannot shed blockers.
Klein was invisible today, horrible.
Klein is what we know he is, awful. Fickell is a moron for playing him, he is wasting snaps for any potential young player to get better, and he does nothing while on the field.
Throw in his repeated off the field embarrassments, he should not be playing much, except mop up time.
Go to a 5 man bear front more with two LB's, an no Klein.
JT Moore did nothing in his few starts, and you can see, he did not get on the field yesterday.
Film will not lie for two weeks in a row, Klein is awful.
Meyer needs to step in and tell Fickell to bench him, Klein is the worse MLB I have seen at OSU in years, and I mean a long long time.
Give Connor Crowell a shot, move him to MLB for goodness sakes, at least I seen him make a few plays yesterday while Shazier was out and he show athleticism.

You have to think that Meyer is going to intervene pretty soon, hopefully this week. The BH mentioned that a potential sit-down was not far away. Hand the play-calling duties over to Withers and Meyer needs to veto certain personnel, like our All-American Storm Klein. I have no idea what Grant did that was any worse than any other player in the back 7, but I feel way more comfortable with him out there against MSU than Klein, at least the guy can run. Klein operates on a delay and is pretty much a pussy when he takes on blocks. Luke does realize that next year is what you are building for, so it may be a good idea to get some of the younger guys in, who are way better than Klein. And can Bryant quit being an idiot out there and learn to wrap up.
And how did it come to this???
terrible, just terrible!!!
