Now THIS is insider. The most worrisome thing about that piece is the JT-Meyer talk. Did JT throw the AD & Prez under the bus? You gotta believe it is 50/50 that he did. That could end everything right there.
"Ohhhh, man I wish I could go back in time. I'd take state."
Fickell needs a fair shake at this job. No coach this young has had this much turmoil from a past hc than him. Should he do better yes but he is trying not to throw his coaches and players under the bus. Behind close doors I will say it is different than you think. Vrabel and Fickell are upset at the offensive staff for the most part are terrible. Tress and Hazell are missed dearly but Fickell need another chance. People need to realize this is a very young team that needs and lacks leadership. People so quick to get Fickell out but look at what he is left. A win tomorrow and most of this is forgotten and if he beats Illini and Wisky and its all forgotten. Not even half way through the season and everyone has already said he is not the answer. Let him coach with his players and his staff and he doesn't have his staff yet.
Old gray man just ain't what he used to be ain't what used to be.
If they want Meyer, they need to make the push NOW
Just another reason Smith has to go. He has shown to be incompetent both behind closed doors and in the public.
The JT-Smith thing kind of makes you think more will come out at some point as to who knew what and when they knew it. I can't imagine Smith surviving this and the sooner he's gone the better.
If Meyer goes to Penn State we are done for awhile. Hoke is already kicken Luke ass and Urban would no doubt get guys from Ohio and in Florida.
We are at a crossroads right now, we can have a 10 year down period until something happens at Penn State or Michigan similiar to osu or we can get out of this and get Meyer. Him going to Penn state can NOT happen. For the love of god, NO
