08:19 AM ET 09.21 | Luke Fickell knows things have to change, but he's not ready to add specifics to his quarterback decision. [Fickell] wasn't ready to say [Tuesday] whether he is going to make a change in the Ohio State quarterback rotation, but he indicated there could be one coming as the Buckeyes prepare to take on Colorado at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday in Ohio Stadium. Senior Joe Bauserman started the first three games, including Saturday night against Miami. Freshman Braxton Miller rolled into the lineup on the third series against the Hurricanes. Neither was effective in a 24-6 loss. ... [Fickell said] that practice the next two days will go a long way toward helping him make up his mind. "We don't know what the plan is just yet," the first-year head coach said.

Blame it on coach Tressell. Honesty is always the best policy, now look at cha's.

I honestly have no faith in them or Fickell, it is going to be a long season but I felt that way going into the season. Let us start to wonder who the coach is going to be next year.

Blame it on the Zooker or Addazio.

Maybe Tressell can open a tattoo parlor to give 'em some enthusiasm.

I don't know what Coach Fickell is planning to do, but he needs to come with something. Obviously tOSU is going to have its ups and downs on the field this season considering all that has gone on, but that game against Miami was a travesty. Bauserman sucked, and the team didn't look too good. If things don't change and fast, I'm afraid we Buckeyes football fans may be in for a long season.

Just play the one you're paying more.

The only thing I blame the Zooker for is leaving Florida. Those were some good years.

If it was up to him, I am sure he wanted to stay.
