Went to ohio state for 11 years from out of state. Earned four degrees, but my Fandom is the most important thing I left with.

I was born in Georgia. My parents moved down there together the year they graduated from Ohio State and had me one year later. My Dad told me to choose whatever pro team I wanted - he did not want me to live life as a Browns fan. But, for college... I wasn't given an option. I was a casual fan until I arrived on campus as a Freshman the same year as Jim Tressel... but it was Tress's first year against Wisconsin that I realized I truly cared - that was my second game in the shoe and if memory serves it dropped us out of the top 25. I was so pissed, I would've been banned from 11W if it was an option.

I'll continue to trust whatever the staff decides until there is good reason to doubt on the field.

My guess is he'll be getting a lot more offers in years to come. With his angst and concern over that perception growing year by year, you have to wonder of his and his family's concerns will be enough to keep him from the sideline. For his sake, given the related health concerns and the concerns of his wife, I hope he finds enough to keep him from full time coaching at this level.

I tend to just skim through and read the relevant parts and I stay happy / extract the relevant news / enjoy a few irrelevant bits along the way. It's pretty easy to spot what's relevant and what's not.

I mostly just lurk and read Spooner's recruiting threads once a day during the off season. Just logged into say 45 is by a mile the most entertaining without a boom (yet)... from blue balls to Birm checking in, to Kyle citing us on Twitter, to Kyle apparently logging in so the Twitter rant could bleed into the thread. All this relatively unrelated / tangential stuff and we might burn through 45 without a boom despite the prediction to kick this thing off. Who knew the recruiting experts outside of 11w were ever checking in? Great night for popcorn.

I think the point about continuity holds water. My hypothesis is that Day planned on keeping continuity unless he knew he had a great replacement. With the energy it took to transition the D coaching staff and the need to get things rolling, I think he may have ran out of time to find a good enough replacement to justify a transition to a new OL coach. Perhaps there's only so much you can do in one hiring cycle. So, you plug the biggest leaks and re-evaluate as this year progresses. Just a hypothesis though.

Yup, my first thought is that it means he ends up at UGA. But, I'm also happy to hear the new staff is making a strong enough impact to make the top 2. I can't help but think that means good things for 2021 and maybe even some of the late commits for 2020.
Comment 26 Apr 2019
Yes. If I'm looking for big time wins on the field and recruiting trail, I would make the trade (assuming the current paying players accusation is disproven). The proven commodity over the new kid on the block seems the wise decision. The future is still bright for Day. But how bright? Beating Bama twice for national titles - is it that bright? I'm not willing to bet on that and Dabo has already achieved it.

What if you like your job but wish it was better and believe it might be if you put the right pressure on the right institutional frameworks? I mean, why not have a go? Worst case scenario is they push you out and then you look for your sunnier skies.

Plus, the reason he doesn't want a nation-wide pay the players policy is because right now that's the advantage his booster's are giving him (according to the Clemson Basketball staff). If everyone else can also pay their players, they wouldn't be nearly as good.
