I'm not sure who to blame but Urban will figure that out after the Orange Bowl. In hindsight it's pretty clear to me that Urbie is still having doing his best with what he walked into, which was a complete mess.
I have absolutely no doubt that whatever is going on behind the scenes with the secondary is a management/coaching issue. It just has to be. Whether it's Fickell, Coombs, I don't know. But when Urban finally has time to address it I expect we'll see major improvement next year and perhaps someone gets fired.
Football teams like OSU are big organizations and a certain amount of delegation is necessary for them to keep running. Just like every organization I've ever worked for, when that breaks down, it takes a while for it to get fixed. You can't stop everything to do a 180 even when you have identified there is a problem. It's frustrating but that's just the way it is.
It's too bad we lost to MSU and I was bummed yesterday about it. But after thinking about it I don't want that secondary to be anywhere near Jameis Winston. What's more that FSU defense is just about as good as MSU's. Better we make the NC when we have all our shit together, which should be pretty soon.
