Ryan Day is as lover as anyone, when he talks about pushing his ideas to the public. Ohio State head coach understood how the media operated, how to stay on message and how to get people to listen to what he is saying.
Usually, he has a message he wants to step behind a microphone every time, a mentality that he extends to his players.
“During the season on Tuesday when our people become available (reporters for interviews), I will meet them many times before and talk to them about my message for the press conference and those things that should be talked about, “Dey said in a conversation with the Ohio State Sports and Society Initiative in June.
So when Day’s zoom press conference took place six days after Ohio State’s first preseason practice on August 12, and the day after the Big Ten postponed the fall football season – progress was made, it became clear by that moment Expects how people will listen Hopefully the conference will go about its next move. Day’s plan included starting a football season in January, playing eight games, and later falling ahead of time to complete that fall season.
He appeared on his view saying to everyone, “I feel very strongly about what I said and am going to work hard to get it done.” And after an offset waiting for the season to start only after the season started and it ended within less than a week, he had a timeline to get it up and running.
“I think we need to get down to it now and give some answers to these people,” Dey said. “It’s been week; It cannot be a month. ”
It has been 27 days since Dey’s comment. He ended his plan after twenty seven days.
Since then? Nothing. There is nothing concrete from the Big Ten that is currently ahead for a football season.
Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren said something on the mountain of pressure about why his conference pushed back to determine the season yet and answered questions about how long the season would be played: eight days after making the decision Issued an open letter. Neither he nor he did much for the interviews given for a small selection of national journalists seeking further clarification and a plan to move forward.

Whoever thought that postponement would be the most chaotic after the first eight days of nuisance, confusion and postponement, to put it mildly, wrongly.
The last few weeks of near-impossible-to-follow stories have featured a lawsuit by Nebraska players that postponed the Big Ten’s 11–3 vote for the season, parent-led protests, In many campuses, including in the state of Ohio, which took place at both Big Ten headquarters, the call from President Trump to Warren was reportedly facilitated by Clay Travis, eminent lawyer Tom Mars, speaking openly to sue the conference for answers and Sending letters to politicians asking them to send letters to reconsider. Amid the chaos, the lack of continuity within the Big Ten – and, to go a step further, inside various schools – has materialized.
Good luck to anyone looking for the obvious, either give a brief answer to what happened or what is happening next. How many times can you say, ‘Well, this is the time when the Big Ten will come up with a plan and be transparent about the process,’ and throw your hands up before it can be proven wrong?
Perhaps, the public will never know the ticking of everything that has been aired from behind the scenes in the last five weeks. The Big Ten will certainly not try to open up about what has happened more than the minimum information that has been done so far – although doing so would likely help in this case, given that Carrie would have hired Cecil after this How little effort has been made to control the message.

The next step for the Big Ten should not be nearly as long as physical, but it is somehow.
Report a possible imminent re-poll as to whether to postpone and avoid playing have started in the last week in October, although they have not been confirmed by national journalists. If that choice – reportedly pushed by conference coaches, including Dey – is a possibility, even after Warren made a full ruling in his open letter just a few weeks ago, A decision now has to be made on using the runway of the season.
It is clearly the option that Bakaye benefits the most, having the best college football team in the country who want to play for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
Yet if October football is an irony, the Big Ten needs to say so, and it should do so soon. This gives players some clarity about when this season will be held, whether it starts in October, November, January or some other time. An unforgivable yet not fully acknowledged lack of any discussion between the conference president and athletic directors as to what the spring or winter season would look like before play in either spring or winter certainly did not help. , But they are now almost a month. It is time to decide.
Still, as Warren and the president take their time, out of a glimpse of hope a month or two ago when a season is possible, Ohio State players and coaches have been left to do so since March. : Just wait for a plan to be made.
