Ohio State Coach Gets Brutally Honest About Clemson
Ohio State coach Ryan Day gets brutally honest about Clemson in a new interview.
The Buckeyes’ season ended in heartbreaking fashion in the Fiesta Bowl a few weeks ago.
A lot of calls in the game were particularly controversial, and many felt like Ohio State should have won the outing.
Speaking to the media recently, Day acknowledged that he was initially angry about what transpired, but ultimately he got over it.
Since then, the Ohio State football coach insists he has “moved on” and realizes there is no point in looking back.
OSU coach Ryan Day on Fiesta Bowl: “I’ve moved on from the anger part of it. When you’re a competitor like that it’s hard to lose a game of that magnitude, and we thought we played really well. But when I watched film, we came up short in certain areas.”

“There were just a lot of plays in that game that didn’t…go our way,” he said.
“One reason or another…It was hard to look guys in the eye, knowing how hard they played, how well they played.”
A targeting call against cornerback Shaun Wade and an overturned fumble that took a score off the board remain the last images of the Fiesta Bowl, but Day realizes there is nothing you can do about that. What’s done is done.
Fortunately for Ohio State, one of the program’s biggest competitors in LSU will be significantly weaker due to the departure of quarterback Joe Burrow.
The Buckeyes, meanwhile, retain star quarterback Justin Fields.
Fields is widely believed to be one of the top contenders for next year’s Heisman Award and will likely get another shot at Clemson and Trevor Lawrence before it’s all said and done.
