New Ohio State coach Luke Fickell joined the show to talk about what it means to take over after everything that’s gone on in Columbus.

Fickell said he hasn’t talked to Jim Tressell face to face since Memorial Day when he got fired. Fickell said as far as he knows he’s allowed to talk to Tressell.

Fickell said that Terrelle Pryor called him, but he was at a Taylor Swift concert and didn’t get a chance to talk to him. Fickell said he would want Pryor to know they wish him the best and want him to come back an finish his education.

Fickell talked about some of the pitfalls players face in Columbus, because the fan base is so passionate. “They love their Buckeyes,” Fickell said. “There are some things you have to be aware of. People don’t understand NCAA rules.”

Fickell said he doesn’t know what the NCAA is going to do. But he’s just trying to focus on his job, and let other people take care of that.

Fickell said he had no doubts about taking this position. He played at Ohio State and working there has been his life. He also said that if you put all the Big Ten coaches into the Octagon, he’d come out. He said his 18 years of wrestling would help.
