Rotating Captains killed Kennedy

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.
