You didn't wantonly cheat and hide damning emails, trade autographs and sports memorabilia for tattoos, or collect cash for no-show jobs - but you didn't win any meaningful football games, either.

How can you blame poor Coach Luke Fickell???? He had not choice in his staff of coaches. He was just dumped in the head spot with no choices on his part. Do you or can you blame him for the troubled year that Ohio State has had??? He is probably the most admirable person in the United States who had the nerve and GUTS to take on "Interim" head coach at Ohio State. Would you my friend have taken this position under the circumstances Ohio State has??? NO - be honest Luke Fickel is a hero in my book.

Janie...welcome to the B10, youngling.

Blame must be placed, fairly or not, on whoever sits on the throne. Ever hear of musical chairs?

It's like that.

GO BADGERS!

Maybe Luke can fill in for Judge Alex. He looks like his clone.

hes starting guiton next game... why? because bauserman sux.....fickel could have done that last night instead he chose to blow that game. tressel found it hard to think in the rush of the game and apparently so does fickell. Also like tressell he likes to hit the gas then tap on the brake. dosn't work in college football

Bauserman looked like he was scared to death. Losing a 21change pt lead is just wrong. Yes, it's going to be a very painful season. Look for Ill to spank us this weekend as well. I had thought we would finish 7-5, now its more like 5-7.

Mr. Fickel can salvage this season by beating those merde from Ann Arbor. IF he does, HE CAN STAY ANYTIME!

That's a bunch of crap about Fickell being a hero for taking his dream job - turmoil or not. They would have coaches lined up at that door to take the job. This is a good opportunity for him to further his career.

That said, one person has ultimate authority on a team and that is the HC. He chose to play Bauserman when everyone else can see that he doesn't have what it takes to compete at this level. A good coach would have known that in practice or, at the very least, been ready to react and sit him for good after the Miami game.
