The big news surrounding Ohio State Monday was four players electing to opt out of playing in the Rose Bowl on Saturday: Nicholas Petit-Frere, Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson and Haskell Garrett. 

Ryan Day wished them all well and thanked them for the contributions to the Buckeyes' program, but said he's optimistic about the players OSU has expecting to play in Saturday's game against Utah. 

"There's still a bunch of guys who want to play really well in this game," Day said Monday. 

Hear from Day, C.J. Stroud, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Bryson Shaw and Dawand Jones as the Buckeyes discuss opt outs, COVID-19 protocols, preparing for Utah and more.
