David Shaw resigns at Stanford.  Tough gig but he had it rolling post-Harbaugh for awhile.  What they did to Iowa in the Rose Bowl was criminal.

Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

Within a week or so, we’ll get the articles and comments from their media telling us how important these bowl practices are, even for the Toilet Bowl

As George Washington said, “Graham Mertz will lead thee down the toilet”.

Well apparently Wisconsin is targeting Luke Fickell and not going to just give the gig to Jim Leonhard.

Interesting. I think that would be a good hire.

I could be very wrong but hasn't Fickell passed on similar jobs in the past? Moving to the BIG XII will give him more money and resources at UC. Even though UC has been to the CFP, I think UW would be considered a step up?

I’d take Fickell over Leonard any day.

Wisconsin would be a definite step up. Though I wonder if he would rather stay at UC and see what happens to Ryan Day at OSU because they completely lost composure, especially on defense, when Michigan got rolling.

I believe he passed on MSU.  So if he took Wisconsin, that would be interesting.  Cause even with UM there, MSU is a much more fertile local recruiting area than Wisconsin.

That’s the big factor.  Fickell may want to wait another year if Day doesn’t win a natty next year the powers that be could be ready for a change

In a heartbeat.  Would be an incredible hire.  Methinks this gets leaked to make it look like they did a national search.  Hiring Fickell is a bold move because i think he’d leave for OSU in a heartbeat

If Wisconsin can realistic shot at Fickell, they have to try. He would be a flight risk for OSU, but so would just about anyone else not named Jim Leonard. I wonder if this

is true.  Becuase if they gave Leonard the tryout, whiffed on Fickell, and then offered Leonard, that would be an awkward situation.

I think if Fickell takes the Wisconsin job, its a sign that he missed his moment over the last couple of years, because he could've had better gigs.  If not for Freeman's sudden momentum for the ND job, Fickell was going to be their guy.  Before Michigan's run the last few years, the hypo of the moment was "would you ask Harbaugh to leave if you could get Fickell?"

Wild to leave for a job that is BARELY top 5 in the B14, before USC/UCLA join.  You could argue for Nebraska as a better job with a decent coach, and Iowa isn’t far off.  Wonder if he regrets not taking MSU

I would put UW fifth behind Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Nebraska. But it’s close to Nebraska. Ahead of both Iowa and MSU.

And that’s why he’ll be the Ohio State coach within 5 years, unless, fingers crossed, he bombs at UW-Madison

Some bad news for you about your new hire:

https://twitter.com/CoachFick/status/1299444560486191105/photo/1

The Bearcats Football program stands with the Black Lives Matter movement. We understand in order for all lives to matter, Black lives should be prioritized too.

No issue with that statement at all.  Now if they honored a guy who committed sexual assault and domestic abuse and was a child kidnapper, as MU did, I’d have a problem.

I agree.

After a quick visit to a UC board, they seem fine with Fickell moving on (not saying they are happy) and there appears to be a lot of very good candidates. UC could move forward without missing a beat.

I think MSU is a better gig.  Athletic department black eye aside, better history, better recent success, and a better recruiting footprint.  You could lose the top 5 in state kids to UM and still get better in state recruits than Wisky.

Want some fun reading, go over to Buckyville and read all Badger Mopes pissing all over the hire and their AD cause their favorite son Leonard did not get hired.

Crazy good hire - man are they mopes, you will see “the Wisconsin Way” thrown about enough times to make you vomit. 


I hate Wisconsin, but that’s a great hire
