Furious George,

I suppose that the host on the common man is the one that makes that decision, who is the source that is telling him this? also coach fickell did call the defense in 2012 and 2013. Go to this site: www.ncb4i.com/.../fickell,-will-call-plays-on-defense-meyer-says and read it and if you are still are in denial then too bad. Oh, you mention above that "Just because he was not fired  does not mean he was not told to take another job" You are correct; it does not mean he was not told to take another job. He could have been fired. I don't know and neither do you. I have pointed out some facts,but all you have done is speculate.

Furious George, Timing is everything for all you and I know maybe he was not not offered a job at the end of the 2012 season. He interviewed for the University of Southern Miss, but was  not offered the job in 2012. You are speculating that he was forced out. Do you have any inside knowledge of this? He did search for a head coaching job after the 2012 season and that is a fact and not speculation. As far as the defense, coach Wthers was the co-defensive coordinator and coach Fickell was the defensive coordinator, and coach Fickell was also the play caller for the past two years because coach Meyer said so on numerous ocassions.

Coach fickell is still on the staff along with coach Coombs which leads me to believe that coach Meyer does not fire coaches. What he does is probably take away some of their responsibilities that he  gives  them when he becomes dissatified with them. As for taking a pay cut, Coach Ash took a small pay cut and in theory a demotion by position to come to OSU, and he did not do it to get away from his head coach because he followed him from Wisconsin to Arkansas. Coach Withers took a pay cut in exchange for a promotion by position, and rumor has it that when not if JM becomes a division I program he will get a significant raise.

Furious George,

I agree with you. I would take Coach Meyer over Coach Tressel. Coach Meyer has not won a championship at OSU yet but he is only going into his 3rd year.

Coach Meyer has not not made any coaching changes. The two coaches you are referring to left for other jobs.

Furious George,

you may recall coach Whiters started searching for a head coaching job at the end of the 2012 season after just one year at OSU. He was just so determined to become a head coach. I believe coach Meyer is similar to  coach Tressel in that they are both loyal to their assistant coaches. I cannot say for sure, but I do not recall either of them firing a coach.

Coach Meyers is an offensive innovator, but he won national titles with outstanding defenses.The difference is he had a better defensive coaching staff at Florida than he does now, however with the additions of coach Johnson and coach Ash maybe that will change.

The recruiting mechanisms have changed at OSU. Coach Tressel would have offered Nick Conner a scholarship a long time ago, but coach Meyer has turned up recruiting a notch by going after the very elite national athletes.

DJ  Byrnes,

Nick Saban did not stay in the big ten or the NFL long enough to prove himself as the great coach he is now so I do not see how anyone can say he was mediocre.. The Miami Dolphins did get more competitive and better doing his short stay there. As for Chip Kelly, he is innovative, and his offenses are exciting,however it has been proven if a defense  gets physical with his offense it struggles.

I agree with most of what you said with the exception of Nickey, he had no business of ever seeing the field. He was one of the worse starting players to ever play for osu.

Comment 19 Dec 2013

Coach Withers wants to be a head coach; this is not the first time he has interviewed for a head coaching position during his short time at OSU. After the 2012 season, he interviewed for the USM vacancy.

Comment 07 Nov 2013

How is it bs by saying it will be interesting to see if OSU resigns coach Fickell? I have not created any posts on Luke Fickell. I just join in on them when someone creates them like you are doing now. It seems to me you are not thinking right. Raising the question means I have broad enough thinking to know that it is a possibility that he will not get resigned. if you are a diehard Fickell fan that is all right, but look at all angles and broaden your thinking it will help you a lot. And by the way, if you have enough time which you seem to go back and check all of my post and you will see they are not all about coach Fickell.

Comment 05 Nov 2013

FAU would have to at least offer coach Fickell the amount of money he is making now in order for to accept the job,however he still might not accept it. It will be interesting to see what happens because his contract with OSU will expire at the end of this year.

Comment 08 Oct 2013

I have been Listening to coach Meyer talk over the last few years,and he does not beat around the bush. I did not get the impression from his comments on Luke Fickell that he was saying something in disguise, although it will be interesting to see what happens at the end of the year.

The conservative playing calling started late last year in the Wisconsin game in the second half, and then the Michigan game the following week and into every game in the second half this year. That seems to be the pattern now.
