Career wise, it should be good for Fickell to get experience as a HC.

Minor correction: more experience, though the one year accrued was with a big time program, none better.

He used to run up the score needlessly...oh wait, that's in vogue now, never mind.

Not that I'm disagreeing with the other things that have been said here.

Only speaking for myself, but as someone who has not spent even one hour in the team's weight room with Coach Marotti (and BTW how many of us would last that long?), I don't feel up to criticizing him or any of the results that have come out of there.  Coach Meyer makes that evaluation.

I don't think Coach Marotti is going anywhere anytime soon, unless perhaps someone offers him a sufficiently good position elsewhere.

I watched it again, and noticed that Winston was clearly looking over at the sideline before moving under center.  Makes me wonder if he was being told to run the play, now.  In other words, maybe Jimbo Fisher condoned what happened because he instigated it.

smh

I think what you're saying is that if a starter on the O line gets injured then Farris and Hale would be among the first to step in and play without completely effing up the unit.  Which is good.  Too bad we don't have more backups who are that ready on the other side.

IMO, OHIO State won't be able to fix what ails their run defense until they get some different personnel on the field.....so, until next year.

Chase Farris doesn't seem to be playing much on O Line, I wonder why he wasn't moved back to the D Line.  I suppose it's too late now, although I don't really know why.  He seems like too good an athlete to sit on the bench all the time.

It would be good to see Braxton's long TD run from 2011 too.  That Team got away with that one, but No. 5 put them on notice.  Big time.

Comment 23 Nov 2014

Notice the VT score at the bottom, they sucked a year ago too.

Comment 23 Nov 2014

I do wonder why the official was trying to hold up play, but don't get me wrong, there should never be any reason why shoving or even touching an official is tolerated.

Edit: I assume there was a timeout called before that play, so the offense would have to wait for that to end before snapping the ball.

Does anyone have a gif of the girls who were shown on TV sobbing during That Team's beatdown at the hands of Oregon in the Big House in 2007?  That was the game where they realized _ichigan football was over.  Before that they thought the loss to App State was a fluke.

Comment 23 Nov 2014

I listened to the last couple of minutes of That Team's game yesterday on XM Radio while driving in my car.  Since it was a home game for them the audio feed was from their own announcing team.  They were clearly disappointed and upset, and Dan Dierdorf did not mince words when he stated that it was a devastating loss for their football team.  Not so long ago this would have been considered a huge upset.

As bad as this season has been, these guys never expected to see That Team lose at home to Maryland, and for them it was shocking.

I just woke up a short time ago and saw this for the first time before having my first cup of coffee.  My immediate reaction was: "Damn, these video games have gotten so good, you can program them to show anything, and now some comedian has made up a clip showing Winston shoving an official away from the under center position."

Seriously, did this really happen?

You can't tackle Barkley around the neck, he doesn't have one!

A win is a win if you are talking about Florida State.  As Coach Mason pointed out yesterday during the Buckeyes' game after they struggled with Indiana for a while.
