Comment 12 Dec 2014

As I mentioned in another thread, Coach Ash probably deserves most of the credit because he was Wisconsin's defensive coordinator just two years ago and he knows their offense as well as anyone.

Comment 08 Dec 2014

People can say all they want about Wisconsin being  one dimensional, but you have to give the defensive coaching staff credit as well as the offensive coaching  staff and players credit for a great effort. The defensive line really played great, and that made  the LBers and DBs look better.I do not know who is calling the defense this year,but in 2013 and 2012 Coach Meyer said Coach Fickell was the play caller. I have posted the below article on several ocassions. Read the article below cafefully and pay attention to the date.

Fickell Will Call Plays On Defense, Meyer Says

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Former OSU Head Coach Luke Fickell will call the plays on defense for Ohio State's next season, says new Head Coach Urban Meyer.

Meyer told a Columbus radio station on Tuesday that Fickell either will be defensive coordinator or co-defensive coordinator but definitely will be the one calling the plays.

During the interview, Meyer praised Fickell as not just a great person and ambassador for the Buckeyes but also as a great coach.

Meyer also said interim North Carolina head coach Everett Withers is under consideration for a position on his staff but that nothing is official.

Withers spent three years as the defensive coordinator at UNC until being elevated to the interim job prior to the 2011 season.

Multiple sources, though, are reporting that Withers in fact will be a member of the staff but his official role is unclear.

Meyer contacted former Arizona head coach Mike Stoops about a position just days after his hire at OSU.

Last week, Meyer lured Tom Herman from Iowa State to fill the role of offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Current OSU assistants Stan Drayton and Taver Johnson are expected to be retained by Meyer.

If Luke Fickell is indeed a candidate for the YSU job, DJ Durkins will probably be one of the first people Coach Meyer contacts.

Comment 29 Nov 2014

There is too much ill feelings between Coach Meyer and Coach Muschamp.Each of them have called the other out on ocassions, but who knows stranger things have happen.

Comment 29 Sep 2014

It still seems strange to me saying Missouri is in the SEC, and Nebraska is in the Big Ten.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

It is not important. Why worry about the SEC, why go back and try to find out how many times have OSU beaten SEC teams? Concentrate on the present.

Your premise is OSU's record against the SEC so why even include Texas A&M and Missouri in your argument if they were not  in the SEC when OSU beat them, what sense does that make?

Comment 14 Sep 2014

Texas A&M was not in the SEC neither of those times OSU defeated them. They were in the now defuncted SWC, and then the big 12. Missouri was in the big 12 conference also when OSU defeated them.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

I remember a quote from Coach Meyer when he was first hired at OSU " I'm going to hire the best coaching staff in the country." That has not been the case so far, but hopefully he can make that claim when everything is said and done.

Comment 06 Sep 2014

If you do I cannot argue with you on that point. Yes I do check twitter and many other things. It is not a good idea to make those kind of guess. I never heard anyone on this site mock him for his love of Notre Dame, and the only person I have heard mock him for it is Mark May. Mark May picks against Notre Dame almost as much as he does Ohio State.

Comment 06 Sep 2014

Do you mock him? my guess is no because he usually speaks highly of OSU.

Comment 06 Sep 2014

Not true, who criticizes Coach Holtz for picking Notre Dame all of the time?

Comment 06 Sep 2014

So what if Desmond Howard shows his love for Michigan? He did play for them. Coach Lou Holtz always thinks Notre Dame is going to win whether they are good or not and nobody criticizes him for that ,and  If Kirk Herbstreit chooses not to show his bias then that is on him.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

Booker, McMillan, Berger, Hilliard, and Connor have not played a down yet, so we don't know how it's going to turn out from a depth chart perspective.

Comment 27 Jun 2014

Oyster,

read the article below carefully and you will have your answer as to who was responsible for the defense in 2012 and 2013. The article gives direct quotes from Coach Meyer.I posted this article in another thread, but a lot of people are in denial.

Comment 17 Jun 2014

I do not think that it is Coach Fickell that is holding back the offer. If it were up to Coach Fickell, the kid would have been offered a long time ago. Coach Fickell is of the Coach Tressel school of thought and that is when it comes to recruiting, take as many Ohio kids as possible. Coach Meyer on the other hand is going to recruit more nationally  and right now he has several line backers rated ahead of Nick Conner.
