Head Coach Ryan Day (Official Thread)

    Of course I'm guessing, but he's a young, in-demand coach who's the OC in waiting and who could leave for somewhere else, but who could also be being brought along by Urban as successor in a few years, a la Lincoln Riley. We won't know for awhile, but, again, I was right about MensaTom.

    Just a guess, but Tim Beck's job was recruiting QBs, not coaching them. Pretty sure his job in Austin is the same because the guy brought a great deal of talent to Columbus.

    Don't pat yourself on the back too hard. Most people thought Herman to Texas was a legitimate possibility one day due to his Texas connections and the fact that Urban wasn't leaving anytime soon. What makes you so certain Day wants to stay for the chance to take over at tOSU? He has zero connections to the state of Ohio as far as I'm aware. You seem overly confident based on some random gut feeling

    Hahaha, there's no such thing as "overly confident" on a message board. It's all conjecture (even though I called Herman long before anyone else here did and was told I was full of shyte) and connections to Ohio don't matter if he gets "it" and he's Urban's choice as successor. What makes me so certain that he'd want to be at tOSU? It's one of, if not the, premier football jobs in the country and he's sitting in a good spot to grab it if all goes well. Why not see how it plays out? Maybe you wind up with it or maybe you move on later. It's not just a random gut feeling; the pieces are on the board, whether you want to see them or not or whether it works out or not.

    Why Timely Return of Ryan Day So Critical for Buckeyes

    [​IMG]

    Ohio State football is about to embark on a new journey, led by a brand new starting quarterback. This is a situation that produces plenty of stomach acid for a head coach, as they operate in a world where the known is almost always better than the unknown. This, of course, flies in the face of the world of the fans, where the unknown is very often better than the known because the unknown has yet to fail.

    With J.T. Barrett off to his next stop, the Buckeyes are now in a position of needing a new starting quarterback. Joe Burrow, Dwayne Haskins, and Tate Martell have already begun the competition, and with the return of quarterbacks coach Ryan Day, they won’t have to start back at square one.

    Day had other coaching opportunities after the regular season, but turned all of them down to return to Ohio State. Imagine where the quarterback situation would be this coming season if Day had left and now a new position coach had to be brought in to not only teach new techniques, but learn what each of the Buckeye quarterbacks can do. The entire spring would have been spent learning from each other, rather than getting closer to finding a starting quarterback.

    With Day’s return, however, the quarterbacks know what they are going to get because they spent all of last year with him. They all know each other. There is no longer an acclimation period. He teaches, they learn. They work, he works. The process is ongoing. Ryan Day’s return essentially allows the quarterbacks to hit the ground running in their competition to replace J.T. Barrett.

    “It means the world,” said Martell after the Cotton Bowl. “If he would have left, it sucks having to go through that after just one year. It was tough for me just knowing Coach Day for like a week before I came in, so that was a weird situation for me. But now that’s my guy, I love him, and I can’t wait to get it going with him.”

    Makes sense to get Mariotta comfortable.


    Let’s jus be thankful that the guy who has been on Urban’s staff the longest won’t be nor ever will be considered for the OC gig.
