It is time for Urban Meyer to make a change. That change has to be getting rid of Luke Fickell. The Buckeyes won 24 games in a row only to lose the 2 biggest games they played in.
The Buckeyes defense has been terrible since they made Fickell the defensive coordinator. Meyer has been a loyal and patient supporter of Fickell's, but come on man enough is enough.
The Buckeyes offense put 35 points on the board and their defense lets Clemson score 40 points. The Buckeyes defensive secondary let Tajh Boyd throw 5 touchdowns in the game.
Boyd threw for 378 yards completing 31 of the 40 passes he threw. This is unacceptable. The Buckeyes defense has to get better before next season.
Urban Meyer has to get rid of Fickell. The guy is a liability. He isn't helping the Buckeyes win football games. His defense sucks and he knows it.
Braxton Miller didn't have his best game, he faced a defense that knew how to play hard . Miller only completed 16 of the 24 passes he threw for 234 yards.
Miller had a touch time rushing the ball against Clemson last night too. He carried the ball for only 35 yards on 18 attempts.
Urban Meyer could see first hand what happens when you team plays good defense. The Buckeyes should have taken notes.
Now that the season is over, so should Luke Fickell's career as the Buckeyes defensive coordinator be over. It's time for a change. The Buckeyes aren't going to get to next level with the defense they have now.
