COLUMBUS, Ohio - The halls of the Woody Hayes Athletic Center are buzzing with activity as Luke Fickell and his Buckeyes get ready for the final game of the year with the Florida Gators in the Gator Bowl on January 2nd.
The game almost seems like an afterthought to many fans however with the news of Urban Meyer being named the head coach starting after the bowl game. But to the Ohio State team that might as well be a million years from now with the sole focus being on the game that is coming up and sending off the seniors with a win and for that matter the coaches who will not be retained moving forward.
Defensive lineman John Simon was a key cog on defense for the Buckeyes and he took some time to talk with the Ohio State media about how practice is coming along, being named to the All-American team and dealing with the distraction of having to head coaches (sort of) in place.
