Sometimes the best hire for a big, responsible position is within an organization. Coach Day is a clear example of this.
I got on a waitlist for a senior apartment back in 2011, the last time Michigan beat OSU, and today I've been in my apartment for almost a year and a half, and the Buckeyes' streak continues.
I can bet that same Clemson fan would have thought it was a catch and fumble if it were an OSU receiver that it happened to.
Ohio State players going high in the first round makes recruiting much easier for Coach Day and his staff.
Oklahoma coming into the Horseshoe and winning 31-16 with Baker Mayfield planting the flag was not enjoyable to watch, especially after the Buckeyes crushed the Sooners in Norman just the year before.
Having a strong D-line has always been an emphasis for the Buckeye defense, and I think this group will carry on those expectations. This group concerns me the least for the 2020 Silver Bullets.
Love the hire, love his enthusiasm, and love the results he showed with his first gig at OSU.
What made the speech unforgettable was that he delivered what he said he was going to do. Michigan has never been the same since.
My 3 favorite seasons are 1968, 2002, and 2014.......the Buckeyes beat Michigan and won the national championship. I was a 12 year old when I watched OSU beat OJ Simpson and USC in the Rose Bowl.
2019 was a great season even with a loss to Clemson....... 56-27 @Michigan, 3rd straight B10 title, 3rd CFP appearance, unfortunately we just didn't finish the job in the playoffs.
We are blessed as Buckeye fans with so many great years to choose from.
Another Buckeye fan on 11W is a good thing!
As great as he was in 2019, he will be even better in 2020. Just hope he stays healthy.
A healthy Justin Fields in 2020 will be a better Justin Fields in 2020.......and he was really good in 2019.
There's no question that the Buckeyes will be a serious contender for the NC......they will have the talent and coaching.......but next year score TD's instead of FG's in the redzone.
At 63 years of age, I shouldn't want football season to come that quickly........but it's Ohio State football, so the countdown to the 2020 season has begun.
GO BUCKEYES!! Win it all in 2020!!
I will watch being a college football fan, not just an Ohio State football fan. If Clemson cannot put consistent pressure on Joe Burrow, I think LSU wins. I look for the score to be something like 38-31.
I am going to pay close attention to the officiating and the replay booth.
Oregon will be a tough game no matter who the QB is, but I think the Buckeyes have a decided edge in talent and should win. I'm not concerned about Georgia because we can't control what the Bulldogs do.
Will there be a Pac-12 crew working the game, or a non-partisan crew?
So excited about this new group of wideouts. So much talent, so much depth......and competition for playing time will make them each individually better.
I am not going to apologize for thinking that the 2020 Buckeyes can win the national championship.
The key for Michigan under Harbaugh will continue to be.......how will they fare against teams other than the ones they are supposed to beat?
I think the RB situation will work itself out. Master Teague is an above average player to start with, and I'm confident someone else will be coached up to give the Buckeyes some depth at that position. It's not a code blue scenario.
He gained some valuable experience with some big game minutes, so there's no reason to believe that he won't get better. Larry Johnson will get the maximum from him, and that's a scary thought for opposing D-lines. Harrison is a physical beast.
Coach Day, just keep doing what you're doing.
The way Mac Jones played vs. Michigan, the Tide will do just fine with him at QB. There's talent around him as always at Bama.
Best wishes to Tua......he was fun to watch.......super accurate........hopefully he makes a full recovery. It will be interesting to see which team takes him, given the risk of him being injury prone.
I want a coach that wins, regardless of what outsiders think of his personality......and we have a winner in Ryan Day. Much better hire than the detractors thought.
Nice gesture by Victor to take the time to thank everyone involved with his career. Best wishes to him in the NFL. With his 6-4 frame he will make a roster.
