Following Latest QB Departure, Ryan Day Continues To Be Victim Of His Own Success
Ohio State head coach Ryan Day is once again a victim of his own success, and while it may make things a little uncomfortable for a while, it's better than having a head coach who is constantly a victim of his own failures. With redshirt freshman quarterback Matthew Baldwin announcing his intention to transfer from Ohio State, the OSU...
The height of confidence is standing up in a hammock.
It seems that these student/athletes don't recognize one thing: One year under Day is likely worth two, maybe three years at LSU, Miami, or my guess is Texas Tech/Baylor. Dwayne Haskins doesn't do what he did under an average to good QB coach, he may have been serviceable but not elite. He's done this under Ryan Day a - wait for it - "Whisperer." So, run if you want but it does not necessarily get you to the ultimate prize - the NFL. PS - There is not a lot of tape on Dwayne Haskins - but that's not necessarily a bad thing. One year of being elite is worth more than two years of being average - and his name is likely to be called on "Dayu" One of the Draft.
“I want it now, I want it now, I want it now!’” plus NCAA caving on its transfer deterrents plus everyone convincing these kids they are Greek gods destined for Big Time equals disaster for the college game!!
Fields has yet to play a single snap at Ohio State and you seem to be granting him legendary status. Gerd, don't you remember Justin Zwick? A press barrage in today's hyped up media environment just doesn't put Fields in OSU's hall of fame. College football is inherently a game that features player growth and development at its core. One of the terrible downsides to Urban Meyers influence on the game had been the turning of Ohio State into a quick stop on the way to the NFL. Nothing to celebrate! Just another race for the bottom of immediate gratification over the finer things . Sad to see. Like good wine or cheese time is itself an essential agent of value. As fat I am concerned Nick Bosa trashed Ohio State and Haskins should have stayed around long enough to collect his Heisman!
I think speculation is dangerous and absolutely NOT necessary if OSU is to carry on with the successful program they had and had going then and today! Speculation leads to rabbit trails that end up in controversy, confusion and blame where it doesn't necessarily end up. OSU Fans and all who support the Buckeye program(s) should be positive and encourage Coach Day, his coaching staff members, Gene Smith and THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY! I understand there are always those who think they have better ideas and put out negativity, but hang in there Buckeyes and let the new Coach and his staff do their thing. Then if things don't go well, don't give up! GO BUCKS!
