UConn.........what happens if/when the Buckeyes run the table and go to the Rose Bowl? At that point, they have to keep Fickell right?
It isn't that far fetched. They will beat Indiana and Purdue, they are better than Penn State and should win that game and Michigan is beatable even if tOSU is the underdog in that game. If the Buckeyes win out, all they need to win the division is Penn State to lose another game in addition to losing to tOSU, and I think that will happen.
Just think.......because the Big Ten is down and tOSU has a solid defense and an offense that is figuring is beginning to figure it out, they could end up with Luke Freaking Fickell as their head coach for the next 3-5 years, while Urban Meyer is coaching the Golden Domers because Brian Kelly's head explodes.
It happened to Bama in '99......they lost to Louisiana Tech and I just KNEW we were finally going to be rid of Dubose, and he turns around the next week and beats Florida in the Swamp(UF's first home loss in several years), then beats their ass again in the SECCG, thus securing his job and giving us the 3-8 year in 2000, and the whole Albert Means ordeal. Sometimes it doesn't pay to be "good".
