I also expect Paul Haynes and Stan Drayton to be retained from the current staff.

    As mentioned, Chuck Heater is the odds-on favorite to be the defensive coordinator. He was Meyer's guy at Florida and is coaching at Temple right now.
    Do you think Fickell would be onboard with such a plan? I think it would be great, but I don't know how much of a hit to the ego that would be.

    I think he knows his role. No insult intended.

    I don't think he'd be crazy about it, but they would pay him his current salary ($750k) to coach at his alma mater. And frankly, it's unlikely he'll get a head coaching job anywhere next season... so yeah, I think he'd go along with it.

    My buddy in Columbus just text'd me this news, but I can't find anything on the 'net to substantiate this rumor as of yet.

    This is going to be like the Dusty Baker hiring was for some Reds fans--lot of eating words about their opinion of Urban Meyer. I guess his arrogance and smugness will turn to "confidence" and "winning attitude"?

    Eleven Warriors has it on their front page. These guys are very, very in tune with things inside the program.

    I'm sure there are some that will have to do that, but I was actually a fan of the guy. I didn't care for how he handled the controversy around the 2006 national title game, but I can't say I blamed him. But otherwise, I respected him and thought he was a guy I'd like my kid to play for.

    I came across this column.

    http://www.sportsbybrooks.com/meyer-...ng-staff-29902

    Of that staff, sources indicate Meyer’s intial plan is to retain current Ohio State head football coach Luke Fickell and current Buckeye wide receivers coach Stan Drayton.

    Meyer also aims to add Chris Spielman, Kirk Herbstreit, current North Carolina State linebackers coach Jon Tenuta and current LSU offensive line coach Greg Studwara to his Ohio State staff.

    Yeah, same. If there was irritation about Meyer with Ohio State's fan base it's just because he was so successful. People have talked about him coming home to Columbus for years, even when Tressel was secure.

    This is the worst tackling team at Ohio State since the 1999 team. That was the post Katzenmoyer group that was more interested in taking shots, instead of wrapping up and tackling. Seriously yuck. Fans keep worrying about the offense. Its the defense people. They can't stop anybody.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    The defense misses some tackles, but it is definitely the offense. If the offense was good you wouldn't care about the missed tackles. They are amplified because we can't move the ball.

    Can we stop that stupid wildcat play please.

    I only wish these reports about Meyer would not be published. It can only hurt things at this point. If it gets out big enough while the season is still going that could make things awkward for him and could get in the way.

    Meyer was in the booth at halftime of yesterday's game saying he has not been offered the job at OSU. That's not saying at some point it won't be, because I don't see them going into next season with Fickel at the helm. But I don't think OSU will make that decision, out of respect for Fickel who knows his job is "interim", till after the season.
