Pizza deliveryman fired after Ohio State football comment to coach Luke Fickell's wife

A college student says he was fired over a comment he made about Ohio State University football.

The pizza delivery guy says he took an order from the wife of O-S-U Defensive Coordinator Luke Fickell.

During the phone call, he told Fickell's wife that the Buckeyes needed better tackling.

"You can't take criticism, in a joking manner too, from somebody's who's a fan? That's just like a little bit ridiculous," said the student who did not want to be named. "I definitely regret the situation because, you know, I wish I had my job."

The owner of pizzeria says Fickell's wife never called to complain.

He says he called her to apologize and confirm what was said after other employees overhead the comment.
