_ichigan Football would be Minnesota without The Great State of Ohio!! O-H! I-O!
You have to be an abosuletly sad person, if Fickell is what you are worried about, some kind of personal vendetta.
1. Reason, we are 11-0
2. You have seen improvement.
3.We have a Fb at MLB playing better than expected after a few weeks.
4. Guy has been here for 10 years .
5. Since Indiana do you see them giving up those long plays.
6. Urban Meyer hired him, he wasn't forced to do so, he hired him and Vrabel.
We are freaking 11-0 with a chance to go 12-0, show me a Defense that has never given up a play or a point, did you see that goal line stand against wisky? When the Offense was stinking it up?
What's the Obsession with Fickell, is it cause of last year. If you can't enjoy 11-0 after a 6-7 season, you are a very sad person, you need help.
Ohio State -2014 BCS National Champs ..believe it now..
Unless he's offered a HC job somewhere, he'll probably remain at tOSU. The defense continued to improve as the season went on and we ARE undefeated. GO BUCKS....Screw the blue!!!!!!!
I am convinced the only reason for improvement in the defense since the Ind. game is because Meyer got more involved and encouraged/demanded certain changes. I doubt Meyer liked having to do that and think it remains to be seen how all this is going to shake out. Reports were that Fickell did not like Meyer's involvement and was unhappy about having to make certain changes. My best guess is Fickell wants to stay and continues to make the changes in defensive philosophy Meyer wants, and that Meyer gives him another year to work it out. Of course who knows what type relationship Meyer and Fickell have at this point (and I am going on the basis that it is still good).
Kudos to Luke Fickell ..Fickell, co-coordinator Everett Withers have weathered a surprising tough season, given that the defense has been decimated by injuries especailly at Lber..The 2012 Buckeye defense may not great by Ohio State standards but Fickell's defense has improved late in the season..
