Ohio State preparing for electric season opener vs. Notre Dame
Ohio State is coming off an 11-win season and Rose Bowl victory. But rest assured, Ryan Day made it clear Wednesday that those numbers aren’t going to cut it in Columbus.
The Buckeyes are hungry to accomplish their 3 goals in 2022. Beat Michigan, win the B1G and hopefully get back to competing for a national championship.
This season, Ohio State gets started with a quality opponent right out of the gate. Notre Dame and new head coach Marcus Freeman – a Buckeye alum – come to the Horseshoe for Week 1.
During his B1G Media Days appearance, Day said it’s no secret that the game will be electric. His team feels it and is getting after preparation accordingly.
“I think our guys feel it. I think they feel the excitement. I think they feel the anticipation,” Day explained. “…that first game being a night game is — I mean, how else do you cut it? It’s going to be electric, and our guys know that. So there’s a little bit of urgency about them, and there’s going to be this preseason.”
Day also noted his team needs to have “competitive stamina” to get through the year, one of the challenges brought on by the elite expectations at Ohio State.
“That’s the challenge of being Ohio State, you’ve got to win them all,” said Day. “So competitive stamina is one of the things we’ve been talking about as a team.”
It will be interesting to see how the season opener – and first home prime time game of the year – goes down.
