Under 'Legendary Bad Hire':
Ohio State (31). The bad hire: David F. Edwards, 1897. You have to hunt to find a coach who didn’t work out in Columbus. Yeah, you could point at Luke Fickell, who went 6-7 last year, but he was an interim guy coaching without a quarterback and under an NCAA cloud. Beyond that, you have to dial back to the 19th century to find a guy with a losing record. That would be Edwards, who went 1-7-1 in his lone season as coach. The poor guy won his first game, against Ohio Medical (Junk Win), then never won again. That included a loss to Columbus Barracks and a six-game streak without scoring a point. Somehow, the program got back on track after Edwards’ sad season.
