    Ryan Day Not Worried About NFL Hype With Justin Fields


    A few weeks back, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said that he wanted OSU to eventually become college football’s “QBU.”

    Meaning, he wanted the Buckeyes producing NFL quarterbacks — specifically high NFL draft picks — at a better rate than any other program in the country.

    Day has certainly increased the amount of passing at Ohio State. Since his arrival in 2017 as the offensive coordinator, his offenses now have three of the four seasons with the most passing yards in OSU history. The only reason he doesn’t have all three is because the 2014 season (3,707 yards) went 15 games and finished with 28 more yards than the 14-game 2017 season (3,679).

    The 2018 season with Dwayne Haskins at the controls set the school record with 5,100 yards passing, while the 2019 season with Justin Fields at the helm is now third with 3,684 yards.

    Being a quarterback himself, it is no surprise that Day would want to invest in Ohio State’s passing game like no previous Buckeye head coach. In order to make that happen, he will need talented quarterbacks to complete his vision. Fortunately for him, in his three years with the Buckeyes, he has been able to work with arguably Ohio State’s three best passing quarterbacks ever.

    Haskins turned his record season into being the No. 15 selection in the 2019 NFL Draft. He was the first first-round Buckeye quarterback since Art Schlichter in 1982.

    They will likely be joined next year by current Ohio State starting quarterback Justin Fields, who is being discussed as one of the top overall picks in the 2021 draft should he choose to come out early.

    Asked recently if he thought this would impact Fields’ approach this season, Buckeye head coach Ryan Day didn’t seem all that concerned.

    “No, it won’t change at all,” he said. “I mean, first off, Justin’s a guy where, it’s just been that kind of hype around him ever since he picked up a football.”

    What would Heisman-winning year look like for Justin Fields?

    Just sayin': I'll say just perform like he did last year; but, staying injury free so he can be consistently good in both passing and running/scrambling in every game just might win it.

    The guy threw 1 interception prior to the Heisman ceremony. I'm trying to remember it, but I think it was tipped. Do that, again, and if he doesn't win it, it's as big of a joke as I already think it is.

    Ohio State QB’s the last two seasons have accounted for 105 TD’s and just 11 INT’s with 0 Heisman trophies.

    That is just as sickening as Ezekiel Elliott rushing for 3,700 yards and 41 TD’s between two seasons with 0 Heisman trophies.

    edit: and then there’s that season that JK Dobbins had with 2,003 yards 21 TD’s and finished 6th!

    To be fair there was at least one, and I think another, pass was was thrown right to a defender who dropped interception. Still, your point is 100% correct.

    It was the Michigan State game...........threw late on a crossing pattern to KJ Hill...........corner came off his guy and rolled back into coverage and snagged it.

    Justin Fields Getting Some Work In With QB Guru Quincy Avery


    Ohio State junior quarterback Justin Fields isn’t taking things too easily during the nationwide quarantine process. While college athletes are spread all over the country and separated from their respective college programs, each is doing what they can to stay busy, to stay in shape, and most especially to stay sharp.

    Fields has spent some of his time working with noted quarterback coach Quincy Avery. Even if campuses were open, there isn’t much coaching that could go on this time of year because of NCAA rules. Position coaches can only work with players so much during the offseason, and there are rules that limit exactly what they can and can’t do. Avery, however, is not hindered by such rules, so players flock to him every offseason to continue working on their respective skills.

    After being a Heisman finalist and throwing for 3,273 yards with 41 touchdowns and just three interceptions last season, it bodes well for the Buckeyes that Fields is far from satisfied with his craft and still working to perfect the quarterback position.

    Avery is based in the Atlanta area, which makes for an easy drive for the Georgia-native Fields.

    Ohio State head coach Ryan Day has said in the past he doesn’t mind players having “gurus,” and Ohio State is more than familiar with Avery as he has worked with many notable quarterbacks in the past, including former Buckeye Dwayne Haskins.

    Entire article:

    I've always wondered just how much coordination the "guru" has with the Ohio State staff. They have to be on the same page for the QB's development or it's counter productive.
