I got the sense from Spielman carrying on and on about Fickell during the game that he knew something we didn't about Fickell's coaching future. It sounded very much like a eulogy. Then Fickell (or Fick for us girly dudes) getting emotional during the press conference sort of seemed like he was saying goodbye. The Akron firing just solidifies my suspicions. I was really holding out hope that Fickell would stay on as an assistant head coach, but that no longer seems likely. I don't want to see him leave but I will remain a big fan wherever he ends up.

According to the same site that posted the Mike Stoops as DC rumor, Akron is targeting Tressel:

Akron: The same source that confirmed to us the Akron news on Tuesday has told us that Akron officials are targeting Jim Tressel. For what it's worth, Akron's facilities are considered "the best in the MAC".

Seems like a pipe dream.

Yeah, a crack pipe dream.  I can't imagine Tressel would take that job.  Usually you'd coach at Akron first then move on to Ohio State, not the other way around (exception being Luke Fickell, of course, given the circumstances).

Class of 2010.

Not only that, but Tressel is most likely facing a show cause from the NCAA. If that happens, he'll be unable to coach at the college level for a few years.

Imagine Tressel and Bolls coaching Akron, LOL.

BUCKEYES BABY!

HA!

Mark May just said if Urban Meyer isn't our coach next season he'd fly to Columbus for the first game of the season and lead the team out of the tunnell.

What a derp.

BUCKEYES BABY!

I think that shows that even he knows Meyer is OSU's next coach. The last thing he wants to do is lead the Buckeyes out of the tunnel.

Then get me tickets and a dozen eggs that have spoiled in a swamp for a month.  I've got a target...
