For months, Ryan Day has continued to talk about Javon Bullard’s third-quarter hit on Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison. The Ohio State coach did so again this week while appearing on a video with Fox’s Joel Klatt.

    To quote UGA after Missouri's introduction to the SEC, this is "Grown Man Football". But they live in la la land in the big ten. It's why they brought in 2 more soft teams from California. Make more money and help the schedule stay easy.

    Yeah, the bigger problem is that he's living in a past that has ultimately been fantasized. It was a good hit. There's nothing to actually complain about other than that our guy didn't do a bad job.

    Not bad for a 3-star number 82 ranked CB when he signed with UGA.

    The interview with klatt looked like a set piece to give him a chance to "respond" to klatt bringing it up. Klatt asked him what ine on field thing bugged him the most. Day made some inane comment about hash marks. The klatt sez something like "golly! I thought you'd talk about targeting!"

    TOS played us tough albeit greatly assisted by a total lack of holding calls! This was the only way they kept CJ Shroud in the game. The pass to Harrison was a desperation throw! The hit has been parsed more than a fetal pig in a 8th grade anatomy class and no one can find anything illegal....just a **** hard hit like everyday in a Georgia practice. The conundrum for me is how did TOS allow a mediocre Michigan team come to the shoe and kick their Bucknut arse.....for the second year in a row???? Perhaps Coach Day should be laser focused on how to prevent that from three peating.....and thus keep his job in 23! Coach Day.....here's a clue.....PRACTICE LIKE THE DAWGS.....after all, if injuries occur, you play in a Cup Cake Conference and with your talent will get you by.

    This isn't Day living in the past, its him making an excuse for a loss that really falls on him (coaching). He's deflecting the blame to the referees instead of the last series where OSU was in FG range and should have run the ball to set their kicker up for the field goal instead of continuing to try and throw it. Stroud was nearly sacked on the play before the FG attempt. What we as UGA fans are missing is what an incredible player Bullock is and how exciting it'll be watching him play safety.

    Ryan Day is a pitiful person. " If somebody is launching at someone’s head and they’re unconscious on the ground, that is not what we want here.”

    Day is still making a false excuse for why he lost the biggest game of his life. Winners don't use falsehoods and fantasy to justify their failures.

    If I were an Ohio St fan, the fact that my coach is using a false narrative to try and justify a loss would be a huge red flag. The replay clearly shows it was a legal hit. That should've been the end of the story. Yet, months later Day is still trying to sell a lie. Why doesn't the media call him on it?

    I have a close friend who is an Ohio State Buckeye fan. I know several and I would actually say they remind me of Georgia fans after the 2nd and 29 thing in the championship game.

    They honestly believe that somehow Georgia got the vast majority of close calls in the 2nd half.

    They also believe they will meet us again in the championship game this year and that Knowles did a decent job for his first year and the defense will be better. They are not sold on Ryan Day and want to see if he can beat Michigan this year.

    Other than that my buddy wasn't even mad at the kicker. He said it was Day's fault for not getting them closer and you can't put that kind of pressure on a kicker in college.

    I thought the takes are pretty reasonable but yes they still cannot believe they lost the game.

    I thought the game was called as well by the officials as any I've seen in some time. Your friend is right about the kicker. It's the offense's job to score, and if not get the kicker close enough. In the end, defense won the game.

    It was pointed out below, but bears repeating, as people either didn't see it or ignored it. I'm not defending Day's past comments on the subject, but this time, I can't really fault him. Klatt put out a welcome mat for Day to complain about targeting, and Day declined. Then Klatt dropped all pretense and basically came right out and said he was trying to prod Day into bringing it up, and so brought it up himself. And even then, Day initially tried to deflect it. It was only when specifically asked that he gave an opinion on the targeting rule.

    I'm not a Ryan Day fan. I think the comment that he ultimately did give was pretty silly, and sure, he could have done more not to make it comes across as a grievance. But all in all, I find this story pretty overblown at this point.

    That's why he lost to Michigan 2 years in a row. Lol

    But, They don't have to worry. They still have ESPN, Herbstreit and Davis to tote water for em and push em into the CFP. They've already started, with attempting to shape the narrative around Bama, Michigan and OSU.

    If any of those teams are on the bubble...ESPN will launch the "Mother of all hype campaigns", to make sure they are selected. That's been their M.O. going back 25 to 30 years.

    Let's just call the OSU whining what it is, sour grapes. I actually was very impressed by Bullard's hit. It was textbook imo on how to lower your shoulder and not use your head and he did it at full speed. It was a very heads up play (pardon the pun).

    Kirby's makin' em all look kinda foolish.

    He knocked the armor off of "Alabama & Nick Saban"...and, Saban's been cryin' in public about a number of things, ever since. Lol...Kirby broke him.

    Harbaugh is damaged, too. But, he seems to be a little tougher than Saban and Day. Has a little thicker skin.

    Now, Ryan Day and OSU appear to be broken, too. Day...and Saban...and Harbaugh...and, Jimbo Fisher have to actually live up to all the free publicity and hype they've been receiving from ESPN at no cost to them.

    Lol...Kirby's conquests are only just beginning. He has to destroy 30 to 40 years of Bama/Big10 hype. And, leave NO DOUBT, that UGA is King of the mountain top and all roads lead through Athens, Ga..
