Well, here's a completely ridiculous idea...let's wait to find out what this is all about, before jumping to conclusions :P

In the past, this program in particular has seen, "what was the player thinking", as well as, "huh? That's against the rules?"  I mean, we had to back off a prospect a couple years ago 'cuz he had his picture taken with Kirk Herbstreit.  Crazy stuff can happen.

What's my biggest worry?  OSU often "loses it" when such adversity strikes.  Remember last year's Purdue debacle?  That was the first game after Nick Bosa announced he'd be leaving OSU.  I hope they don't have a similar setback this year.

It's not often that a disaster of a program turns competitive overnight.  He's going to need several years of recruiting, as well as the whole culture change.  Honestly, if you've ever been to a MD basketball and football game, they are night and day from each other, with the latter being the afterthought.

First order of business will be slamming the door shut on Day, Franklin, JH, etc, in terms of recruiting the DC area.  If he can do that, he'll have a solid program on his hands.  If not, MD will be just another "graveyard of coaches"/

For what's it's worth, when Day came here, I believe he said he was hoping to start setting root somewhere.  He seems to love Columbus, and is top dog with a top dog paycheck.  That may be enough for him for the next several years.  My bigger worry is his staff.  I can easily see guys like Hafley getting snatched up by someone looking for an up-and-comer.

At the very least, it looks like Day may have a pretty good eye for hiring assistants.  That was Meyer's late downfall - hiring friends, who would prove to be "complicated" to fire, if need be.

At risk of jinxing the team, the way they've been speaking in interviews sounds like, "If the offense scores in one play on 19 of its 20 drives, and the defense gives up one yard of offense the entire game, there's still room for improvement".  I like that approach.  No matter how good you are, you can still get better.  That should keep complacency in check.

If you want to talk wimpy-looking mascots, save it for Maryland and Penn State.  Those two are in dire need of an upgrade.

Trap games are not teams that have a shot at upsetting you on any given day.  They are teams that will beat you if you fall asleep on them, or take them for granted.  That was Purdue last year.  Yesterday, the Bucks obviously did not come unprepared for Nebraska.  I hope they take that attitude every week this season.

Funny you mention recruiting, because that would absolutely get him fired.  If a handful of their recruits decommit, that will be a sign that it's over.  And, on a related note, if Daxton Hill suddenly hits the transfer portal for greener pastures, I will absolutely lose it.

A ton of M fans still celebrate the huge middle finger he gave OSU in '86.  He's been riding that clout ever since he was rumored to be taking over.  It's gonna take a few more years before they really tire of him.  Besides, his boss is his former teammate.  That would be a very interesting, "step into my office...and bring your playbook".

Players at least should not be seriously considering other offers once they commit.  Probably could say they shouldn't be taking other visits.  Thus the question is, why is it even happening?  Perhaps the coach was putting a lot of pressure on the player to commit?  "Commit now, or I'm sending your offer to someone else"?  Once they commit, they should already have their minds firmly made up.  Then again, they are 17 year old kids.

Two years ago, OSU got a slow start at IU.  Fans started screaming, “overrated”.  It was the beginning of the end.
