    A large contingent of Ohio State fans will say that the jury is out on Ryan Day as head coach. Here are the reasons why:

    1. There's a lack of A-Gap power running plays. The formula to beat the Alabama's and Georgia's in college football is having the ability to run A-GAP power to wear those LB's down. Under Ryan Day, Ohio State no longer runs A-gap power, which was the formula in 2014. They will be further hampered in this game with the fact that their starting RB is out with a foot injury. Word on the street is Williams, the back up RB had the flu this week. That is not a good for Ohio State.

    2. Many Ohio State fans feel as if Ryan Day's (University of New Hampshire) offense doesn't travel well against physical teams. Kirby was complimentary, but until Ohio State fans see them play a physical game for 60 minutes they haven't proven anything. It's this part of the mental game that they have shown weaknesses under Day. Red zone scoring has been bad against physical teams under Ryan Day.

    3. Defense hasn't been emphasized. Day hired Knowles, but the defense looks more like a Big 12 team than let's say a more traditional Tampa 2. Ohio State fans are not happy about this, especially after having years of Jim Tressel defenses where the best athletes were put on defense. Knowles is a gambler. Ohio State gave up 5 explosive plays that resulted in TD's in the second half against Michigan when he went to a cover zero and he never got out of it. The insanity of the whole thing was head scratching. Here's another issue, Josh Proctor is the more athletic safety, but Ransom has started since second series of the ND game. Can't be coached?

    4. Ohio State has been inconsistent. If you look at the games, BEFORE the bye week and compare them to the games AFTER the bye week, you will see 2 different teams. Whatever happened was mental not physical but results in a less physical play in the second half of the season.

    5. The B1G is an improving conference, and since there isn't much crossover until bowl games, it's difficult to get a feel for the teams. The only game anyone had during the regular season was Penn State vs Auburn that could have been used as any type of legitimate gage and Auburn is down this year.

    6. The years of SEC narrative as "the best" conference whether it was true from year to year (usually is but not always) left teams like Ohio State on the sidelines in some years. Ohio State carried the B1G for several years when the conference was down. So that's where they get the "Ohio against the world" mentality. This was created during the BCS era when TV contracts between the SEC and ESPN were signed and the B1G told ESPN to go pound sand. Great story behind that when Jim Delaney sent a bottle of champagne to ESPN executives with a not saying "thanks for making our decision easy" and started the B1G network, which funneled money into the conference. ESPN races out to secure the SEC contract under better terms and then went on the conference polarizing Psyop where we really didn't know the best teams because the BCS was just as much opinion as anything else. For example, look at what happened Clemson last night against Tennessee. Had Clemson gone undefeated they could have been in the BCS game against Georgia, Meanwhile other teams may have been more deserving. I'm sure you get my drift.
