Ryan Day Building Relationships While Adjusting to New Life As Ohio State’s Head Coach

He's already wearing the same coat he did at the presser - TOO MUCH PRESSURE FOR COACH RYAN DAY THAT HE CAN'T EVEN DO LAUNDRY?? 5-7 SEASON CONFIRMED!!

The good thing here is Ryan doesn't have to re-invent the wheel or build back up a broken program.  Almost all of the behind the scenes infrastructure remains from support staff to recruiting to strength.  Apply his knowledge and his own personality and work in the things that he sees as right for the program and keep the train rolling.  He wasn't afraid to make sweeping coaching changes - which is good.  He's obviously been successful thus far in recruiting (as long as you don't ask the Bobs).  Huge recipe for success for RD.

I want a fall Saturday in Ohio Stadium..

But they’re always very, very supportive, people are always super nice.

Hasn't yet read 11W comments during a game (win or lose), I gather

Very true. Lol. But I hope we all agree that fans are in an impaired insane state during games. No game day comments should be taken seriously.

"...we’re going to go through tough times,” Day said. “Whether it’s injuries, hopefully it’s not a loss, but when we go through times like that, we’re going to stick together. Those relationships are being built now.”

Whatever Ryan Day has done to balance out equal levels of personality, engagement, attitude, and the "get it factor" he should document it now in case this current gig doesn't work out (but I think he'll be ok).

I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...

I'll tell you one thing he's knows how to say the right things. 

It's going to be even more impressive this fall when he shows America he can walk the walk.

One wonders if James was paying off a bet.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Like it or not, when out in public, because of his new position, he's going to draw attention.  Hopefully people will give him some space.....

I've run smack dab into some A listers in my life and always respected their privacy.  It just takes some self control.

A simple "Go Bucks!" should suffice.

Enjoy the wins over *ichigan, ....I still remember the dark days of the 1990's....

It's cool that Day is integrating himself and his family into the community by attending public events like the arts festival. It's got to be exhausting with all of the attention, but it goes a long way to build the connection with the fans. Woody was a bit like that.

I find it exhausting to take my family out in public, and nobody even cares if I'm there. Ryan Day is clearly superhuman.

Maybe Dan can ghost write his first book?  I would pre-order it.

That would be quite an assignment! He'll have plenty of writers to choose from if he ever needs help writing a book, some of who probably have much more experience actually writing books than I do, but I certainly appreciate your confidence in my ability to do the job.

It takes a strong person to wear those socks!

Here’s a rule for buckeye fans. You see a coach or player you like walking around with his family. Leave him the fuck alone.  People are so damn ignorant.  You want his picture or autograph?  Attend one the million other events he goes to specifically for that. Leave his family, especially his kids, out of your inability to control your cell phone.
