Here's what Fickel had to say, via Fletcher Page of the Cincinnati Enquirer:

"We had a couple kids (get hurt) yesterday and I spent time with them, spent time talking with their families," Fickell said. "That, to me, was more important than what Jim Harbaugh had to say about us and our program or me in general. But I know where we stand. I know that James Hudson has done a lot of things and it’s a shame, and I know guys can get eligible... It has a lot to do with the programs they’re coming from. That is what it is, and if we’re not going to get any help from them – which we didn’t, James didn’t – then it’s pretty much a moot point." 


"There’s a reason why I called," Fickell said. "Just like I called Coach Day at Ohio State and Coach Saban at Alabama. I did nothing different than what I did with those guys and the results are different," with Hudson and Michigan. 


"I’ve got notes if you want them," he said. "Nothing more than asking, 'hey, what’s your stance on James? Are you going to help the kid?'

"It wasn’t like pleasant or anything. It was kind of cold. It was short. It wasn’t a long conversation. It wasn’t hard to figure out what their stance was. They supposedly weren’t going to hold (Hudson's waiver) up but they weren’t going to help him."


"We saw how it works with coach Day at Ohio State and how they helped Blue Smith out, to be honest with you," Fickell said. "So, whether people know a lot about that, they wanted to help the kid. They didn’t want to lose him, but they wanted to help him. They did stuff to help make him eligible here and gave him an opportunity to be eligible."

My daughter is/was a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She was in the program helping others for about 4 years, after receiving her MBA in the program and then taking the state exam to be licensed in the state to practice and eventually left and went down another career path. It was dragging her down mentally with what she had to deal with and the low amount of resources and support provided to them to help deal with those that needed help. She did her best to help, but eventually she had to move in a different direction.

I support what coach Day has started with the Day Family Fund-there are many who need assistance and maybe some day there will be enough resources to help everyone. It is a large step in the right direction and much needed.

Desperate people do desperate things, in hairball's case, he likes using excuses and diversions on why he can't beat top tier teams, and here is another example.
