Opinions are like certain body parts that everybody has.

And until we get to see a full season of Ryan Day, that's all any sportswriters have to go on.

I do remember when Jim Tressel was hired.  Nobody knew what to expect, and a few games into that first year when he was 4-3 I was thinking maybe he wasn't that good.  But then on November 24, 2001 he took his team into that state up north and beat the #11 Wolverines 26-20.  And I knew he was a great hire.

So perhaps the sportswriters should hold off for a while on the rankings.

It's only fair.  I think Urban and Tressel both finished far back in the COY vote at the end of the year.

So a guy who is undefeated but only 3-0, and has the best recruiting class in the conference probably should be ranked 10th by those standards.  Maybe he'll move up to 7th or 8th if he wins a national championship.

I'm just surprised Kirk Frerentz wasn't first.
