    SKULL SESSION: NFL COACHES THINK JUSTIN FIELDS MIGHT BE BETTER THAN TREVOR LAWRENCE, CHASE YOUNG SHOWS OFF QUARTERBACK SKILLS, AND RYAN DAY PUSHES FOR SPRING FOOTBALL

    SPRING FOOTBALL COMETH
    Urban Meyer long lamented that there were no spring football practices in Ohio. Ryan Day inherited that burden and shares the same complaint, but he's actively trying to do something about it.

    However, there are no spring football practices. Here is the OHSAA’s explanation:

    “Already the rule in Ohio, there is no contact permitted except during the season, and pads may not be worn at any time except during the season. (Many states that allow spring football practice and contact in the summer have a much higher rate of concussions.)”

    The lack of spring football is somewhat unusual among the sport’s biggest states. In Texas, for example, schools are permitted 18 “spring training” practices during a 34-day calendar period.

    That can leave Ohio players lagging behind their out-of-state counterparts in some ways.

    Urban Meyer discussed that as an issue when he was the head coach at OSU, and now Ryan Day is aiming to do something about it.

    “I think I made it public that I proposed a five-day spring practice schedule or practice for high schools. And they’re in the process of kind of voting on that,” Day said Monday.

    I knew there was a difference, but I had no idea it was that drastic.

    The Texans get 72 more football practices throughout high school than the kids from Ohio? Shit, no wonder Garrett Wilson and Jaxon Smith-Njigba looked like seasoned vets their first college practices.

    More than that, those are 72 more chances for a college coach to go see a potential prospect in person outside of the fall (which is extremely busy for a coach, as you might imagine). I get the safety concerns, but you have to put your kids first in other ways as well.

    Five days still ain't much, but math tells me that five is bigger than zero, so I guess you have to start somewhere.

    Ryan Day Proposes Change For Ohio High School Football

    [​IMG]

    Football is something of a year-round obsession in the state of Ohio.

    If you have any question about that, take a moment to reflect on the fact that you just clicked on an article about the sport when the calendar reads “March” and the start of college football season is still six months away.

    That obsession reaches from the professional ranks, where millions of fans still support two of the most moribund franchises in the entire NFL, down to the lowest levels of youth sports.

    The Buckeyes are unquestionably the kings of the state, but high school football rules Friday nights from Ashtabula to Cincinnati.

    Given the state’s fixation on football, it’s somewhat surprising that the Ohio High School Athletic Association does not officially sanction the sport outside of the fall.

    Its 2019 football calendar for football ran from the start of coaching on August 1 to the state title games on December 7. Its official manual for the sport also allows 7-on-7 time in June and July.

    However, there are no spring football practices. Here is the OHSAA’s explanation:

    “Already the rule in Ohio, there is no contact permitted except during the season, and pads may not be worn at any time except during the season. (Many states that allow spring football practice and contact in the summer have a much higher rate of concussions.)”

    The lack of spring football is somewhat unusual among the sport’s biggest states. In Texas, for example, schools are permitted 18 “spring training” practices during a 34-day calendar period.

    That can leave Ohio players lagging behind their out-of-state counterparts in some ways.

    Urban Meyer discussed that as an issue when he was the head coach at OSU, and now Ryan Day is aiming to do something about it.

    “I think I made it public that I proposed a five-day spring practice schedule or practice for high schools. And they’re in the process of kind of voting on that,” Day said Monday.

    The five-day proposal wouldn’t totally close the gap with the Lonestar State or other areas, but it could be a good compromise to balance the stated concerns about player health.

    “Hopefully we can get that passed as soon as possible because I do think it matters,” said Day.

    “I do think it’s good for the state of Ohio to evaluate these guys whether it’s Ohio State or any colleges, but also for the development of football players throughout the state.”

    SKULL SESSION: RYAN DAY AND CHRIS HOLTMANN ARE THE BEST DUO, ROBERT LANDERS' NFL DRAFT SETBACK, AND MASTER TEAGUE IS LOOKING NIMBLE

    [​IMG]

    DYNAMIC DUO. Ohio State's football and men's basketball coaching duo is untouchable.

    After owning Ryan Day and Chris Holtmann were ranked by 247Sports as the No. 1 coaching duo in the country, and frankly, there wasn't even a close second.

    247Sports' Take: Both following iconic head coaches before them in Ohio State's Urban Meyer (2012-18) and Thad Matta (2004-17), Ohio State's Ryan Day (football) and Chris Holtmann (basketball) have made the respective transitions look easy. Both programs were ranked first in their respective polls

    Day took over for Meyer on an interim basis in 2018, guiding OSU to a 3-0 mark and assumed the full-time position for 2019 and beyond. Ohio State cruised through the Big Ten — behind a Heisman Trophy-finalist quarterback that Day recruited in Justin Fields — and the Buckeyes started 13-0 (9-0 Big Ten), winning the conference and heading to the CFB Playoff for the first time since the 2016 season. OSU fell 29-23 to Clemson in the final minute of the Fiesta Bowl, but Day (16-1, 10-0) arguably has the program flying higher than Meyer ever did. Day's 2020 recruiting class ranked fifth nationally in the 247Sports Composite Team Rankings, and the 2021 cycle is already shaping up as a monster haul at first with 14 commitments — eight of which are top-100 prospects.

    Holtmann, meanwhile, catapulted Ohio State's basketball program back atop the Big Ten and returned to the national picture immediately after the Buckeyes' decline under Matta. OSU followed Matta's 17-15 (7-11) downturn in 2017, registering Holtmann's best season through three years, a 25-9 (15-3) 2018 campaign with the team's second-place Big Ten finish and NCAA tournament appearance. Ohio State took a step back in 2019, going 20-15 (8-12), but cracked the Big Dance again. The Buckeyes went 21-10 (11-9) and were bound for a third straight March Madness appearance before the coronavirus crisis canceled the postseason, leaving Holtmann at 66-34 (34-24) through three seasons on the job.

    The most insane part is that these guys have been on the job a combined four seasons. They both replaced all-time Buckeye greats and the programs are still trending up. Urban Meyer is a hall of fame coach and Thad Matta is the winningest coach in program history, and their replacements are better.

    That would be as insane as replacing the best passer in Big Ten History with one of the highest-rated quarterback prospects in history. Oh, wait.

    Anyway, I'm still waiting for someone to find out how to tattoo a gif onto human flesh, because the second it happens this is going to be my new backpiece:

    SKULL SESSION: RYAN DAY WILL BE ELITE FOR THE NEXT DECADE, MACK BROWN SUGGESTS SUMMER PRACTICES, AND DAVID LIGHTY RETURNS STATESIDE DURING THE PANDEMIC

    DAY OF THE FUTURE.
    If you're hitching your wagon to any head coach for the next decade, might I suggest Ryan Day, who just won a Big Ten title and made the College Football Playoff in his first season as a head coach, has produced two Heisman Trophy finalists in consecutive years, and is currently out-recruiting everybody else by a mile.

    Also, he's just 41 years old.

    The fine folks over at The Athletic were convinced by his resumé, and Day went No. 2 overall in their fantasy draft of coaches they'd want for the next 10 years.

    Round 1, Pick 2 (No. 2 overall): Ryan Day, Ohio State

    This pick is as much about the program as the coach. Ohio State has been good for double-digit wins in all but two of the past 18 seasons. It has the most recruiting cachet and deepest resources in the Big Ten. Day led the Buckeyes to a Playoff berth his first year as head coach, is well-positioned to do it again this year, and, at just 41, it’s easy to imagine him staying in that job for the next decade. — Stewart Mandel

    Dabo went No. 1 overall, and I can't form any sort of argument against that with a straight face, at least from a pure numbers standpoint. When my team beats his team – and that day will come –we can talk again. Until then, the throne is his.

    Jim Harbaugh, meanwhile, went at No. 22 with the rationale essentially being "he sucks if you expect him to be an elite coach, but he's fine if you expect mediocrity," which is extremely spot on and exactly why I want Michigan to make sure he's one of the five highest-paid coaches for the rest of his life.
