Do a little digging and read mike's father's interview the week before this years NSD. His health is not worse and he said Mitchells don't like to sit and watch. He was willing to talk about every child except Mike's transfer.
Hondo Havlicek, then Jerry.
Read about Fickell in the ozone deciding not to play Mitchell when the opportunity arrived and he didn't because of a possible redshirt. Then read up on Mitchells father's interview in Northeast Ohio news during this years NSD where he is no worse than he was before and said the reason Mike picked OSU was the great chance at early playing time. Plus that Mitchells don't like to sit on the sideline and watch. Then when asked about the transfer he clammed up. A kid who would give up so much for his family would have been praised by his father. He was willing to talk about any child including Mike but not about the transfer.
+1 Rufio for that link. It's amazing how much play calling could change with just one replacement on the O line because of different talents on reaching or speed to the corner or being able to adjust quickly enough. An OC must know the strengths and weaknesses of every offensive player on the team and who is in the game at all times and the knowledge to adjust his play calling. It's amazing how much of the play book condenses with one replacement. All the while keeping tract on whose is in on defense and their talents. Enlightened
The only thing I hold onto against Fickell right now is losing Mike Mitchell and I will eventually get over that.
No faith in Fickell equals no faith in Urban. Personal foul Mr. Byrnes, 15 yards for piling on at the end and stirring up the mob.
Webb. Next year for Mcmillan
How the defense works together. Looking for some swagger of confidence and pride instead of heads down confusion and on their heels waiting for something bad to happen.
After contacting hundreds of former buckeyes, this the only kid the Lantern could come up with to say anything was wrong at OSU and went on ESPN as though it was everywhere in the program. Very misleading. I still hope he can get it together and lead a productive life.

I think Herman can help some with a little more strategic pass play calling. There were times when we rarely threw unless it was an obvious passing situation. Some games we opened up throwing successfully and it went away early. Excited for the year.
Actually it's Urban's overall responsibility.
I guess they decided after a full half of football or a whole game players won't get tired and hurt on hurry up. If getting hurt was the issue then this doesn't make sense so maybe you guys are right that the sec has that much pull.
Fickell contemplated using Mitchell. An interview with ozone he was quoted in saying when asked about Mitchell, "Sometimes those young guys, their opportunities are going to arise at certain times and then just like last week, you have that situation, or do you try to hold him and not knowing what the future holds, as a redshirt or something like that." So him being injured doesn't hold water for the year. Also 247, rivals and espn had articles on OSU redshirting 19 players since Urban was adamant about not doing it. They did say he was so blunt about it that most everyone thought it would be a rare occasion when that isn't what he meant. I used the word fudge because I didn't want to give the impression I thought they were liars instead MAYBE misleading a LITTLE.
Did you miss the article in the ozone where he Fickell debated on putting Mike in but didn't saying "And then just last week, you have a situation, do you put a guy in that situation, or do you try to hold him not knowing what the future holds, as a redshirt or something". So the excuse he was injured is why he did not play doesn't hold water.
Thank you, The point about it may have cost us was what I wanted to say.
"Blowing time". I thought it was up to the player for rs. What if he doesn't want it. Just asking.
Have you not been watching or reading player interviews at any college why they picked a certain school. I hear a lot of coach so and so said I get a good chance to play right away. I also heard some no red shirting was a big deal as though it was disrespectful to their talent.
He had a concussion as well as an ankle sprain but could have played. His brother still has not decommitted from us. Looking at his twitter everything seems normal and not talk of decommitting or his father.
It wasn't the play calling. It was breakdown in responsibility and poor technique.
We do know that Urban made it appoint to the press we don't look to redshirt. I was just surprise as to the extent that we did.
