I’ve gone back and forth on the Urban Meyer story. When I initially heard about it, I thought it was blown out of proportion but studied it in greater detail and thought it would result in Meyer’s termination. But I continued to dig and more information came out and I started to think that Meyer did what he should have done. This was always a very complicated story. I was always curious to hear results of the investigation and report. I defended him as the investigation continued.
I was pretty confident that Ohio State was going to beat Alabama. To me, Oregon is much more of a toss up. But I look at the Bucks and I can’t count them out. This team is special. They have great chemistry. Guys have stepped up when they’ve needed to.
Tomorrow afternoon, the final chapter of another Ohio State season will close. In terms of production, it has been a team far removed from that to which Buckeye fans are accustomed.
Luke Fickell will lead the team in his last game in what was a short tenure as head coach. It began in the spring of 2011 when he was named as the interim head coach who would lead the team in the (at the time) five game abscence of the suspended Jim Tressel. As information came to light which proved that Trsssel had lied to the NCAA, he had no choice but to resign at the end of May, and Fickell was named the coach for the whole season.
