Forget about the recent incident with the pizza delivery man who made comments that got him fired from his job earlier this week.
Luke Fickell's defense has become a major issue, which has been gashed in a way it hasn't been in quite a few years by the Indiana offense.
Give the Hoosiers credit though. They do have plenty of talented playmakers and run a great scheme under Kevin Wilson.
But, this is the same defense that has been burned time and again by spread offenses, which means scheme has become a major problem that needs to be fixed.
Fickell may not necessarily be on the hot seat, but he should at least be officially on notice because it's only a matter of time before the defense—which was supposed to carry this team until the offense got its legs under them—costs them a game this season.
It's still hard to fathom that after seven weeks, Buckeye fans are more confident in the offense than the defense. It feels like a Twilight Zone episode more than anything at this point.
