03:19 PM ET 10.11 | Did Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell get a Columbus pizza delivery driver fired for a joke about the Buckeyes' defense? Seems somewhat unlikely, and the school is denying the young man's story:
Well, then Ohio State sent out this message about the, uh, incident: A slight (or a flippant remark or an inappropriate comment) was made by an employee of a retail establishment to Mrs. Fickell. The Fickells DID NOT call the manager to complain. The manager found out about the incident (presumably from someone at the restaurant). The manager called the Fickells to ask what was said by his employee. They told him. And just like they did not place a call to complain, they also did not ask that anyone be fired. In fact, they feel terrible that this person lost his job. All they did was order pizza.
