Ryan Day Offers Interesting Take On LSU, Alabama and Ohio State
Ryan Day offered an interesting take on LSU, Alabama and Ohio State in his recent comments to the media.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Day was pressed on how he feels about not being ranked No. 1 in the nation despite many people feeling like they’re the best overall squad in college football.
According to Day, at this point, rankings are not particularly important.
Whether Ohio State is ranked Nos. 1, 2 or 3 at this point does not mean anything for their National Championship hopes.
Many think No. 3 @OhioStateFB is worthy of the No. 1 ranking.
Right now, in the final days of October, Ryan Day isn’t concerned.

“If you’re No. 1 right now and you lose next week, you’re not No. 1 anymore,” Day said.
“That’s for everybody else to talk about. That has nothing to do with us right now. Doesn’t mean anything.
“You don’t get anything for being No. 1, 2 or 3 at this point in the year. You get it for the end of the season.”
It is hard to argue with Day’s logic there. As we have seen with LSU leap-frogging Alabama despite the latter winning in domain fashion last weekend, the rankings at this point are large arbitrary.
As conference rivals play one another and undefeated squads start losing the 0s in their loss columns, the rankings will slowly begin to have more and more significance.
