    One point here on the other side of Day's apology to Frost on the last score:



    ON BENDED KNEE
    Make no mistake, Ryan Day is the man, but I'm not a fan of apologizing to Scott Frost in the post-game presser for scoring a touchdown on Ohio State's final possession of the game.

    First off, Nebraska's own stank - running three plays for -3 yards and taking just 1:33 off the clock - put Ohio State in position to get the ball back. Then its punter uncorked a 31-yard shank giving the Buckeyes the ball at the Nebraska 40.

    Day inserted a true freshman quarterback and nothing but reserves at every other position before running it six times in a row. No throws. Only one of those runs went out of bounds and it's not like Ohio State was running a hurry up offense.

    Hell, Xavier Johnson, a fourth-string running back with zero collegiate carries, who is probably fourth string only because Marcus Crowley and Miyan Williams are out, logged four of those runs, going for 17 yards.

    I fully support being respectful of your opponent but I support even more the notion of being respectful to your own players. Johnson may never see another carry in his Ohio State football career and he'll remember yesterday for the rest of his life.

    Frost will have forgotten about that fair and square possession by tomorrow, if he hasn't already.

    Ok, great compromise. If he can do that for the 4 or 5 decades he will have won the husband game. Good luck to him.

    Another thing to think about: If the Buckeyes played the same time as Alabama, Notre Dame, Georgia, and Clemson, this result would’ve easily been the most impressive among that group as far as first games go.

    That could be true. It’s also very possible it’s true for only 2 or three years.

    Another reason I don’t think he should have to apologize is that it was fourth down. Taking a knee would not have run out the game clock. The change of possession would have forced the Neb offense to come out inside their own 5 yard line in the last 20 seconds.

    Look at the irony here....

    Just think, if the game was against scUM and Ryan Day had his QB just take a knee, he would have to apologise to all the Ohio State students/faculty/alumni/fans for not running up the score.

    :biggrin:

    Bestbuck36 Kyle Young man crush. Not ashamed

    Not Ryan Day's job to stop The Ohio State Offense regardless of time, down, distance or score. It was backups just straight running the ball. If you don't like them scoring on you, stop it.

    Stop apologizing coach.

    Yes I am doing games again this year. However, we need a 2020 football torrents thread to post them in, which I am unable to create.
