What were you hoping to hear, something like "Did you see the final score?" or "Remind me again, who won". That's about all Fick could say after games...

Is that picture real or are the CZ's superimposed???

We compare Fick to the Sand Man so I feel this is completely appropriate.

Mr. Fickell, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this blog is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Can he learn?

Can't learn if you're not going to school. He didn't come to tOSU to play school...

@wood very good point, he must be playing to the strengths of his players.  Still baffles me thought, you would think those would be the easier passes to complete.  What if we found out Brax wasn't 20/20 and all he needed was glasses...

Unless we can secure a proven defensive genius in the next few days,  I said keep him as sole DC, reasons being:

  • Give him a shot, Fickell is a smart guy (football intelligence), we get to see what he's really got
  • If he falls short, we know it's him, the responsibility is on his shoulders 
  • Heacock is within arms reach, UFM can ask him to sit up in the booth if things aren't progressing 

I know a lot are saying Heacock would be the choice, another poster posted something about wins and losses when Heacock was on board and it make sense, he wasn't really able to defend against the big schools (Florida, LSU, Texas, USC).  If we're not going to go with an internal candidate for DC we need a fresh start, somebody that is up and coming and thinks outside the box.  We should be able to excel on the defensive side of the ball on athleticism alone given all the talent we're pulling in.
