Day is short enough, I think I'll just call him Day most of the time.
But his motto: Live Free or Day
Short, like 5' 11" Tate short, or....
Oh. You meant his last name is short.
Hopefully the nickname for this offense the next 2-3 seasons is: “Having a Fields Day”.
Dayman, champion of the sun...
Leave one wolf alive....and the sheep are never safe
Fighter of the nightman!
Master of karate and friendship for everyone
I am a firm believer that the best nicknames will develop over time. Jim Tressel was also the Senator because of his press conferences.
Let the first season play out.
Agree with you, they should come naturally.
Ryan Day, Knower of Offense, Poacher of Rival's Coaches....
LOL! This will only get longer as the victories roll in!
I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.
Heh heh agreed - can't wait for it to grow :-)
I kinda like "Mike". It just rolls off the tongue.
How about "Dave?" Oh wait, that's taken by Bollman.
BDBrown, did you go to Buckeye South?
Nope, he isn’t here.
Lol, did you?
Depends on who's asking.
Some dude from Shadyside.
I know a few folks who were "from Shadyside," but I don't know anyone who lives there now, that I can think of.
‘91 Shadyside grad here.
I'm finding lots of OVAC grads on here as time goes by.
I survived Cooper, and I hate Tai Streets.
Just bestowing an arbitrary nickname goes against everything nicknames are about. They are rooted in fact but playful by nature and come about organically.
Give it time.
I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.
I Believe In Ohio State.
Exactly. In Phillip Roth's "The Great American Novel" there was a baseball player who was so obsessed with acquiring a nickname that his teammates nicknamed him "Nickname." Just let it come naturally.
This is true. It is also how as a short white dude I acquired the nickname Moses Malone.
I keep thinking Ryan Day Time. Twitter handle and yes it is...
The offseason is the longest season.
how about....Ryan Day of the house of New Hampshire, first of his name, the un-beaten, king of the Horseshoe and the 11 Warriors, Khal of of the 100yd grass sea, breaker of the 10 yard chains, and father of the Silver Bullets.
Actually, let's all hope he gets some horrible nickname. We all call Saban "Satan" mainly because of all his titles and his rep for being cut-throat. Day gets a name like that it'll be because he does the same thing. Win.
"You're the patron saint of the totally effed" - Hot Tub Time Machine
My friends and I already call him Cheeks because his cheeks are always inexplicably red like a little kid that's just came in the house after a day of sledding and building snowmen lol
Aaron Craft says hi
Ryan Day, the transferrer of QBs
Asian Luke Fickell
That only applies like 60% of the time though. He's kind of got that Tom Herman quality where he looks like different people at every press conference. If coaching doesn't work out he should go rob a bank or something.
Wait, is Ryan Day Asian?
No, he looks like an Asian Luke Fickell.
As long as other teams say it's not our Day when they play us.
Nothing cleanses the soul like a no call pass interference.
I got to thinking last night, we need an appropriate nickname for Ryan Day.
Nope. You lost me there. Nicknames for the sake of nicknames is the wrong answer.
“LENNNNNAAAAAAYYYYYYY”-Arthur Morgan 1899
How about "Coach"?
Let's just take this Day today.
Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever. -Falco
Or let's just take this Day by Day.
Then shorten it to Judgment, then just "The Judge" and it becomes one of those nicknames that no one remembers how he got it.
His first and last name together is 7 letters, not sure he needs one.
Nicknames should be earned, not given. Cardale "Didn't come to play school" before he got the Targaryan nickname, he had to earn it. As far as I'm concerned Day is Day until he shows otherwise.
Ryan "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" Day
Living the life! Go Buckeyes! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
CPO and CDR, USN (ret)
1942, 1954, 1957, 1961, 1968, 1970, 2002, 2014 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!
“Being average means you are as close to the bottom as you are to the top.” John Wooden
Already has his own beer.
The bobbleheads have had their pep talk. Time for some football.
RYAN "BETTER THAN MENSA" DAY
Game Day Ryan Day!
Make Will-Way your Way!
every saturday is "payDay"
Every day is Ryan Day.
Ryan "Kick Michigan's Ass Every" Day.
He looks like he could play a Vampire in some move lol.
'never skip leg'...
'never put off until tomorrow what you can do to'...
'Sunday bloody sun'...
'Rome wasn't built in a'...
'go ahead, make my'...
'I can do this all'...
MAY DAY lol
The evil Mark May already took this one
I have referred to him as RFD a few times so I am going to stick with that
I Hate Michigan.
As long as they don't call him June 14th. I can't take another year like last year.
Any list of “forced nicknames” starts and ends with “T-Bone.”
Newman. He's from Manchester, New Hampshire so it's a combination of the "New" from New Hampshire and "Man" from Manchester. More importantly, it's one of my favorite bit characters from Seinfeld.
"In America, anyone can become president. That's the problem." George Carlin
What it will be for our opponents: “Bad Day”.
Hey Cancer! This ass kicking is brought to you by the Guernsey county mafia. Give it Hell 84!
"Happy", as in Ryan "Happy" Day (when used in a sentence)
"We get paid to score touchdowns, not kick field goals"
-- Urban Meyer
In the immortal words of Legendary Hater, Pit Bull:
MAN.....YOU CORNY (11w)!
“The Shadow” for his always present 5 o’clock beard.
TG Proud Buckeye alumnus.
Hopefully when we get deeper into his tenure we are referring to him as Harbaugh's Daddy.
Fields of Dreams
Because when he weaves his sadistic mojo into his offensive play calling the opposing defenses will become so bewildered that they will swear their gatorade was spiked with LSD.
I hope the fans of TTUN refer to him by the nickname "cheater"
Because that means he will keep the string of wins going against them, and this is the only way their brains can process it.
Varys: I've always hated the bells. They ring for horror, a dead king, a city under siege.
Tyrion: A wedding.
How about Wreckoning Day.
