I don't think it really matters. Five years establishes stability which obviously helps in recruiting. if he's an abject disaster, they'll just fire him anyway. I don't think we'll see much of a drop off on the field in the short term. OSU's offense jumped from 40th in 2016 to 7th last year when Day and Wilson arrived (and to 2nd this year). Schematically, it was Day's show on offense. Defensively, it's hard to say. Meyer's an elite CEO and (zach smith notwithstanding) and one of his best skills has been finding quality assistants to run his units and develop his personnel. The obvious analogue is Lincoln Riley, and not moving on from Stoops sooner probably cost him a national title. Similarly, getting the most out of the talent meyer's left behind will likely depend on Day's willingness to make some tough decisions on the defensive side of the ball. Any time you hire a coordinator to run the program the side of the ball he doesn't specialize in is the obvious question mark. As an OC you don't need a defensive philosophy and you don't have to think a whole lot about what your defense is doing. Now he does. His ability to make the appropriate hires on that side of the ball will determine his success here I think I don't expect much, if any, drop off in recruiting. That's probably not a commonly held opinion among the fanbase and it may very well be overly optimistic, but I think this era of college football is more national than any other. Ohio State is a massive brand with a proven NFL pedigree. And by all accounts, Day is a recruiting ace. The foundation's already been set in '19 and '20. As long as Day wins, I don't think pulling elite talent going forward will be a problem. There will be a drop off if Haskins leaves. Tate Martell is talented, and a model qb for Meyer's offensive system. But he doesn't have the kind of next level passing talent as Haskins. He's more of a prototypical RPO type. he can run, and he'll be fine on the short/intermediate stuff that serve as spread offense staples. But the NFL throws Haskins made so effortlessly this year are gone. The ways a qb like that can warp defenses just aren't replicable.
