Taking on Saban, Ryan Day has chance to establish elite status in only second season

Bill Rabinowitz | Buckeye XtraNick Saban had already won one national championship at LSU and three for the Crimson Tide.

Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer, his former Southeastern Conference rival, had won two at Florida.

When the Buckeyes won that title, Ryan Day was a 35-year-old offensive coordinator for Boston College, about to be hired as quarterbacks coach for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Now Day, in only his second full year as a head coach at Ohio State, will lead the underdog Buckeyes against Saban’s No.

“When he showed up and we started doing 7-on-7s and things like that in spring ball and training camp, there was a completely different feel to the passing game,” Coombs said.

“I’m looking forward to finishing this thing the right way and then taking a deep breath and decompressing and trying to reflect on what just happened this year,” he said.
