So after reading that permanent captains would have undoubtedly prevented the Jammmmaaaaaal (I can never remember if it's 2 m's or 2 a's or both) Berry "situation" from occurring I have come to the conclusion that Luke Fickell is a complete failure as a head coach.
A lot of people have obviously decided that no matter what the "Interim" Head Coach does it is wrong. Rotating captains = wrong, not wearing a sweater vest = wrong, playing a 5th year senior instead of a true freshman = wrong, losing a game = wrong, scoring points at the end of a half = wrong, etc. etc. etc.
Sure he has made some blunders along the way. He sweats too much. He wears lame t-shirts. He apparently lost his killer instinct somewhere between the high school wrestling mat and the OSU sideline. 4 games into a head coaching career and.................EPIC FAIL.
I for one am not buying all the negativity. I see a bright future ahead. Fickell has had a chance to make 1 coaching staff hire and it was a home run. Fickell is the head coach and he has my full support.
Sure we can and will analyze, and re-analyze, and over-analyze this season of many uncertainties. All I can ask is that people give the man a chance. A chance to grow and improve and succeed and earn the head coaching gig or a chance to fail. So far the jury is still out in my book. I wish that were the case for all of us.
