Ryan Day did something interesting in the game against Toledo. He called a fullback dive against the Rockets, and revealed something interesting from his time as a play caller per Dan Hope and Chase Brown of Eleven Warriors.

Day’s decision paid off, as Mitch Rossi scored a touchdown on the play. Day stated that it was the first time that he has ever called a fullback dive as a play caller. This includes when he was the offensive coordinator at Temple in 2012, Boston College from 2013-2014, Co-OC at Ohio State in 2017, and even as acting HC of the Buckeyes 2018.

Buckeyes’ fans won’t care as long as the ball gets in the end zone, but the players on the team seemed to like the move. The players mentioned that they like it when Day adds more formations to the offense, and Day is open to doing so in the future.

“I think they like it,” he said. “When you can change things up a little bit, I think it adds some diversity to your offense.”

We’ll see if this inspires Day to get more creative on offense further on down the road.
