    Day has been excellent. Really hope we get to keep him one more year.

    I'm sure an eventual promotion to OC will happen and keep him longer. No way Wilson stays past 2 more years

    Chip Kelly might make him his OC out at UCLA...

    Granted, the bar was set so damn low all Day had to do is not trip over it, but thank Gawd for Day, and yeah, fuck Tim Beck.

    Not sure he would be calling the plays under Kelly if here his OC. I believe Kelly called all of the plays while he was at Oregon. He likely would have more input in the offence at OSU than he would at UCLA under Kelly.

    Agreed...but he wouldn’t be “Co-OC” and would likely be paid more. Would also get credit for UCLA’s offense, see Mark Helfrich.

    Pay the man whatever it takes. Though I'm afraid of it becoming a Warriner situation if we make him OC.

    Right, but Helfrich is also currently available and Kelly would not be poaching Meyer's staff, whom he considers a friend. He could tap Helfrich for this coming year and revisit the situation at a later date if Helfrich and/or Kevin Wilson get HC opportunities after 2018.

    Heard on the Buckeye talk podcast( guys) that Day is actually the coach that does the offensive game plan, more so than Wilson and Meyer has final say. I'm sure he'll get a pay raise at seasons end, especially if we win the B1G, get in the CFP or get to a NY6 and win. I see Day staying longer than Wilson

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    It’s criminal that 17 year old kids have threads many pages longer than coach Day’s. Kids who haven’t done shit yet compared to a proven comodity like Coach Day who has WAY more impact on the program than any one player ever will.

    I think in the midst of the staff changes from this last off season, everyone’s focus on a NC run and then the current recruiting cycle, people have really slept on what an incredible hire this is.

    I couldn’t be happier with this hire and I have a hunch he will stick around for a while. At least I hope so.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    While I hope you're right about his longevity, per Urb today, he had a HC opportunity in the SEC this year that he passed on... so it's not like he's a well kept secret.

    Nobody good will be a well kept secret. The fact he didn’t pursue it and Urb is clearly fond of him, giving him props and keeping him in tight is just a great sign. Not sure we could ask for more than potentially Wilson>Day. You set yourself up for that kind of succession plan and you win a lot of games year in year out. Just incredible how Urb reloads with players and assistants.

    I don't want to take anything away from the job Day has done, BUT.............

    he is getting measured against Beck LMAO. I think Miley Cyrus would have been an upgrade.

    In all seriousness, Day has been better than we all expected I think. And we expected him to be pretty good.

    RugbyBuck Our church has no bells.

    He's staying here to be the next tOSU head coach or at least for the chance to be... and if you're skeptical, go back and look at the thread when I called Herman to Tejas YEARS before anyone else thought it possible.

    Are you just guessing or do you have a legitimate reason for that claim?
