THE Ohio State University: Fickle ON Fickell

23 Nov

Fickle=marked by lack of steadfastness, constancy, or stability : given to erratic
changeableness. — fick·le·ness noun.
Fickell= ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luke_Fickell), current Head,
(“Interim”), COACH of the STRUGGLING football program at THE Ohio State University. With the ouster of Jim Tressel the university is in the process of rebuilding its “income” producing medium of “Cirque du SOIL”.
It’s a shame that the business of “education” would overlook the apparent sameness of their choice in Coach Hayes’ begining and Coach Fickell’s… the ONLY difference is that Ohio State’s great leading minds have forgotten the fact that when Hayes came in as Coach the only other coaches to post a winning percentage above Hayes’ were…
John B. Eckstorm,1899–1901/22–4–3/ .847 and,
Carroll Widdoes, 1944–1945/ 16–2/ .889…*
And NOT for too long a time period.
If institutions that tout LOYALTY forget to TEACH THAT lesson to those they “strive” to instill that QUALITY TO… one of the first events should be in their MOST VISIBLE actions.
From the Washington Post,( http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/colleges/
former-florida-coach-urban-meyer-denies-reports-saying-hes
-next-ohio-state-coach/2011/11/23/gIQAFdopoN_story.html.)
From: the Cleveland Plain Dealer,( http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2011/11/
urban_meyer_will_be_ohio_state.html).
WHO’S to know, until ?
As Yogi ( Berra)said: “It ain’t over, ’til it’s over”.
And, is LOYALTY an extinct quality of “HIGHER EDUCATION” ?
By the way Coach Hayes’ first year was:*
1951 @ 1951 Ohio State .4–3–2, overall, 2-3–2, conference 5th place of TEN teams.
And, maybe OSU doesn’t want to write the true article of:”LOCAL “BOY” MAKES GOOD”.
“up”-date:
As of November “28”, 2011 THE Ohio State University has hired Urban Meyer as its new Head coach for its Football team. AT FOUR MILLION DOLLARS per year. Urban will enjoy a SIX year contract. During the Monday evening “news”-cast the mention of magnanimity from Meyer to departing Luke Fickell was glossed over to his keeping “such a great DEFENSIVE coach” as Luke. But, NO MENTION OF A SALARY INCREASE.
WOW, “Higher” education’s TARP-ish reconstruction of ITS “hay-maker”.
