07:29 AM ET 11.07 | The interview that never was? Asked about a previous report that defensive coordinator Luke Fickell had interviewed for the Florida Atlantic head coaching job this week, [Urban Meyer] said an interview had not taken place. "My wife sent me a text asking if Luke interviewed," Meyer said. "He did not interview. He better not have." Meyer said an interview request would have to go through athletic director Gene Smith and then Meyer. "The AD calls the head football coach, the assistant comes in and says they have an interest in me, when would be the right time? My answer is, don't do anything to disrupt this team," Meyer said. "I get the whole thing. But there's absolutely no interviewing going on during this time. No chance." Fickell knows FAU athletic director Pat Chun.

The Sun-Sentinel article indicated otherwise. Hopefully Chun went to see the Teflon AD first. If not, then protocol was broken by both Chun and Fickell.

Or, it could be UFM doesn't want public distractions in tOSU's season and put the kibosh on the story with some plausible deniability.

FAU would need to come up with a better offer than the $600K Fickell currently earns in C-Bus.

Big game tonight!!! Time for the Ducks to put up or shut up. Oregon can't/shouldn't keep making excuses of the past years. If Oregon will out, then they most likely will be in the BCS CG.

This could be the scandal that derails OSU perfect season. It will go down in history as
'the flea Frickell maneuver'.
