Ryan Day is the man in charge of the Ohio State football program for the next three weeks after what happened with Urban Meyer.

What Day says goes. And it will go from Week 1 against Oregon State to Week 2 against Rutgers and on to Week 3 against TCU. On Tuesday, during the Big Ten coaches’ teleconference, Day talked about a number of different topics regarding the Buckeyes.

Here are some of his quotes:

Ohio State finished the 2017 season with a 12-2 record and winners of the Big Ten Conference Championship over Wisconsin. The Buckeyes went on to defeat USC in the Cotton Bowl 24-7, but for many, that wasn’t enough.

In Columbus, right or wrong, fans think national title or bust. The 2018 season will have to start with Day leading his bunch and any loss in the first three weeks would be potentially catastrophic. The Buckeyes are going to be favored in each of its first three contests.

To start 2018, Ohio State kicks off its season at noon on Saturday against Oregon State at Ohio Stadium. The game will be televised on ABC.
