I wasn't saying it comes down to Michigan as if only that game mattered. I am saying it now comes down to Michigan because of where we stand today after the entire season to this point and my belief that we will win the next three, including Penn State. If we lost to Penn State, my point becomes moot.
Also, what about Fickell being hired long-term then hiring a new offensive coordinator. With a solid OC you don't think Fickell could have major success here? The defense is going to be great next year. If we have an O-line and some good playcalling I think the O gets much better as well.
I have been wondering about this since JT retired (resigned), is there anything that prevents OSU from rehiring JT after the NCAA issues its ruling (and assuming, of course, that the NCAA's ruling does not prohibit the rehiring)?
_ichigan Football would be Minnesota without The Great State of Ohio!! O-H! I-O!
I see a lot of comments regarding Fickell choosing an OC and the difference that would/could make. Throw this out there.
1. What OC or type of OC is out there that excites people?
2. Does anybody have any concerns that Fickell would coach like his mentor? Conservative, play good D and special teams. If so, can he win "big" doing that (remember, Tressel was not an average coach so until proven otherwise, he won a game or two a year that you can assume the average coach would not have)
