    but I enjoy watching college football and the sport was unquestionably better with him around the past 15 years

    I don't doubt Ryan Day is a good coach but just kinda confused by "he did such a good job as the interim coach" takes. Oregon St was 2-10, Rutgers was 1-11, and TCU was 6-6 (I know they were ranked at the time of the game).

    If that's the narrative you're hearing, I think it's being miscommunicated. I think what people who aren't morons are saying he did an excellent job with the offense and he's shown promise as a recruiter.

    At least we didn't hire someone with a sub-.500 career coaching record. #BoomNoleRoast

    While I'm sure that's a big part of it, I have a hard time believing Day is named HC today without a search if he wasn't the interim for the first three games. Maybe I'm wrong on that, but I think those three games/weeks had at least something to do with this.

    It has more to do with the team not folding and retaining focus facing adversity than it did with who they played.

    The point is that he didn't do anything miraculous while he was interim but he didn't have to. He handled the media well and kept the car on the road.

    Urban trusted Day with the offense and completely changing the scheme he had been using his entire coaching career. I think that speaks volumes.

    I don't think ESPN has the stones to do it. I agree with Corch (something I never imagined typing before this moment, but here we are) that FOX is most likely if it happens. It has B1G games. It didn't rip him like ESPN this summer, and doesn't have as much to lose as ESPN for bringing him on. I just don't see what ESPN would gain from adding him this year.

    That's fair enough. At Florida he tried something similar with Steve Addazio in 2010 and it's pretty certain he wanted Addazio to be the head coach but after a disappointing season it was never gonna happen.

    Buckeyes what are your thoughts on a 5 year deal for Day? What are your expectations next couple years on the field and in recruiting?

    Do you think there will be any drop off next year like if Cardale leaves?

    Like the deal because it shows belief in him.

    Expect us to remain at the top of the B1G and contending for the playoffs every year.

    Recruiting might not be Urban level, but consistently top 10.

    The length isn't an issue to me. If he's a bust he'll be gone after two or three and if he's great he'll get a bigger deal after three, probably.

    There's nothing but positive stuff coming out about his ability to recruit but he's gonna have to prove it now.

    We expect a few changes to the program but he'll probably try to keep things pretty similar to how they are now.

    Yeah the one thing in recruiting that interest me is OSU recruiting the Southeast and places like Texas now. OSU has always been a national brand but when Urban took over he took a lot of his time from Florida to be able to pluck a bunch of kids from down here and I thought that really pushed OSU over the top. WIll be interested to see if Day can keep that u as well as Urban did

    I just bought an iPhone XR. Have a 2 hour training that starts here at 1pm and plan on setting up my new phone during that time instead of paying attention. Hopefully you guys can help me work it. I’m old school and like buttons.

    More importantly I just bought a turkey bravo from Panera for lunch

    I think recruiting in the Southeast definitely takes a hit, and that’s no knock on Day whatsoever.

    Between losing the relationships Urban had there and having to compete with Bama/Georgia/Clemson/FSU/Florida that’s asking a ton.
