    Well Tucker said he's not going anywhere.

    Fickell has gone dark.

    Oh well...
    He said he was curious about the crowd but didn’t want to stay and talk. “I’m heading out,” he said. “This is a super-spreader event.”

    Sounds like Fickell is gone. Which is why UC Football can only go so far.

    MSU AD went back to Lansing w/o a deal. I think that bodes well for Fickell staying

    Not sure why Fickell would not take the job without any guarantee that Cincinnati will get into a P5 conference in the near future. It has long been expected he wanted a B10 job, and Ohio State will not likely be open anytime soon. He was interested in the WVU job last year, and likely would have taken it if offered....kind of hard to imagine he would take WVU job and pass on Michigan State.

    Fickell is staying at UC, per the Enquirer.
    He said he was curious about the crowd but didn’t want to stay and talk. “I’m heading out,” he said. “This is a super-spreader event.”

    I think this is a good move on his part, considering the NCAA issues facing MSU and the recruiting class Fickell has coming in to UC.

    So much for reading the Twitter tea leaves...

    UC can't guarantee him something that they don't control

    Assuming Fickell isn't going to be a UC lifer, MSU (scandal aside) is a program teetering right on the edge of a program that is capable of turning into an elite powerhouse (year in and out). I just don't think they will get there in our lives. I think it would have been a dead end job for Luke with the ceiling being a Dantonio-like run. I guess what I'm saying is Fickell probably made the right move. Keep churning at UC and wait for the right job.

    MSU is a good job, a much better job than UC. I just don't know if you want to be the coach who has to come in and clean up the mess Dantonio is leaving it with. Their recruiting has been terrible, mostly impacted by the likes of UC and UK. There will be some form of sanctions placed on them, although I don't know how bad they will be. They also play in a division with OSU, PSU, and Michigan, when at their peak they may be able to win the East once in ten years, but it is probably the most difficult division to win in football.

    I don't know what Fickell's ultimate end game is. I don't think UC is a job he wants to be a lifer at. I also don't think OSU will come open anytime soon. Day is in a similar situation as Fickell is with a young coach and family. I don't see Day leaving soon, especially when the brink truck backs up and starts to pay him. Basically the best midwest jobs I can see Fickell taking are, OSU, ND, and MSU. Is he staying with UC hoping to get either OSU or ND?

    Yeah if he’s turning down MSU, I think he’s banking that he can keep turning out 10 win seasons at UC and when the next round of consolidation hits (probably 2024 when TV contracts get redone) that the ACC or Big 12 will look at them as a top option.

    Also I think Fickell has a bunch of kids, so there is a personal element at play here too where he doesn’t want to uproot his family.
