luke fickell is a horrible defensive coach just look what hes done to osu sure 12 0 because of urban but wheres the defense
OSU is 60th overall in defense. Get rid of this guy please!!!!
He's worthless! He is destroying the Buckeyes. He needs to take a job coaching pee wee football. He's in way over his head.
Fire Fickell hire Speilman he'll work for $700k!!
Ficklell is a position coach at best not a coordinator!
- Tony hughes
Luke had 2 seasons to show his worth, and its painfully obvious now that it was really Heacock that was the mastermind of the past great OSU defenses. Luke has no clue how to run an Ohio State caliber defense. He has to be fired.
Also, he is one of the highest paid assistants in the country at $700k per year.
- Sidney Phillips
This defense is absolutely the worst. There is no energy, no excitement. Can't expect the offense to keep playing lights out with no defensive support. If Fickell is such a great position coach, why have so few of the LB underclass men not been able to step up? I mean, we are playing our FB at LB for fecks sake!
The defense giving up 49 points to freakin' Indiana?!?! Meyer is dumb if he doesn't fire Fickell at least after the season is done. This kind of pathetic defensive coaching cannot be tolerated!
- A Dub
This is the worst defense that I can remember at tOSU. Pathetic
- Jorry Holloway
Hes moonlighting as judge alex
the pizza delivery kid was right. the defense needs to tackle better. fire fickell not the pizza kid. fu iaconnos.
Fickell needs to be fired. The end of the Indiana game was pathetic and down right embarrassing . The offense needs to realize they need to play full 60 minutes or we
Will be in trouble if Fickell remains
We've waited all year. No improvement. We need to Fire Fickell.
- Brandon Lippert
Fickell needs to go, he's the last hold-over from the Tressell era and is just a bad at his job. I believe they ONLY kept him around this year because he stepped up like an idiot and took the head coach job last year. Once OSU gets rid of this idiot coach, promotes the assistant defense coordinator and hires one more defense coach then you are going to see a REALLY DAMN GOOD OSU Team. Fire FICKELL aka F@CKELL. Because he's such a F@CK UP!
Fickell and his wife should both try and find new jobs that they are capable of doing.He sucks at his defence teachings and formations and his wife sits at home all day and lets him do the rest.Can we say, need of new jobs?
This is the worst defense I have seen in many years.
Good players, poor coaching.
Preparing our anuses
- GO BUCKS !
I kinda like him...GO BLUE

Where can I drop off a resume?

After calling for a spike on 3rd down after wasting 15 seconds...why isnt Urban there yet? If I were OSU I would be putting Urban Meyer on the door of the head coaches office.
- tired of this crap
When Stupid St Fick finally realized that OSU COULD WIN by actually opening up the offense it was too late to salvage the season. OSU still has great players. We need a GREAT coach to be relevant again, especially with the resurgance of Michigan, Wisconsin, Penn State and Nebraska. Get Urban Meyer in here........FAST!!! Lets get back to who OSU really is.
- GoBuck Chuck!!!!
Keep him ! Look what he has done with nothing. Do you think Meyers will stay more that 2 seasons? Fickell is what Ohio State is all about! With that much love for The Ohio State, he will turn us around after all this crap leaves us. Tressel is to blame. He had the problems at YSU too. Give Fickell a true chance or we will lose him.
Deer in the headlights! And he looks like an idiot chewing that gum like a teenager.
Bring on URBAN!
- Bigguns Dublin
I would fire him as a head coach, considering I much rather have the Urban Legend! But as a def. cord. oh yeah Id keep him. Fire freakin Bollman! 1st and 10 what do we run... power I 2nd and 8 what do we run... power I, 3rd and 13 what do we do, shot gun QB run... awesome, and why do we run the "Wildcat"? Braxton Miller is our fastest/smartest/deadliest runner we have, give him the ball, he can run or pass!
Fickell came in at a bad time with a true freshman qb and not having Herron, Posey, and other starters. they're doing much better then I thought. And next year Braxton Miller is taking us to the championship.
Luke fickell and jim bollman are the worst play callers in division 1 football. I say fire bollman, and put fickell back as a defensive line coach( where he was actually good).And how did joe bauserman (jo bausersuck) even get to a division one school, and why did these loser coaches ever believe in him
This country was dumb enough to elect the current administration and it's only after 3+ years that people are starting to see the error of their ways. Fickell stepped into a very difficult situation and has struggled at times, but I think he should get at least two seasons to show improvement and confidence to the fans. Keep him!
I think you gotta give him some time, I mean it's only been one season, and that with all the suspensions and everything. Plus you can't completely blame a head coach or even a coordinator for a player's lack of performance, that would go more towards the position coaches.
Hey Ohio State - Rich Rod is looking for work!
I forgot about Adam Sandler......he would look just as good as Fickell (most people can't tell the difference) and I'll bet that he would be a better coach than Luke
- Buckeye Chuck
There are a number of coaches available to give OSU a real opportunity for a return to glory:
Charlie Weiss....I hatesthe heat down south
Joe Paterno......I.will be rested and ready
Rich Rodriquez...I've helped OSU win in the past
Dave Wanstadt...just give me another chance
Mike McQuerry....trust in what I say and do
Pete Carroll......I know how to stay out of trouble
Jerry Sandusky....I'll make things interesting to say the least
- Buckeye Chuck
You gotta give the guy at least 3 years
Fire Fickell and get a real coach.
