Ryan Day joined Fox's Big Noon Kickoff show today and the man is ready for some football.
Day celebrated the growth and leadership maturity Justin Fields has polished this offseason while confirming Wyatt Davis practiced yesterday and Shaun Wade is "on his way" to join the team in Columbus. He did note the need to "fill out some paperwork," they deserve a chance to play and he believes they will.
With the mid-week news of the Big Ten football season's start slated for October 24, Day said the team had Thursday off and returned to have one of the best practices he's been around in 10-20 years on Friday.
“I left that practice with a smile on my face. I'm so happy for these kids," Day said.
On Fields' offseason efforts, Day said, "I would give him an A+. He's a top couple pick in the draft and he never wavered once," going on to say Fields wants to win a Heisman and national title.
Amid ongoing coronavirus concerns Day offered, "I think there are gonna be a lot of games that are postponed throughout the fall, so who knows how many games each team is gonna play. We can't worry about that ... We're gonna play as hard as we can, as physical as we can and be as tough as we can.”...
