Beating Michigan isn’t the only expectation Ohio State fans have for their head coach, but it might be the most important one. Ryan Day knows this.
Day’s predecessor Urban Meyer has spoken frequently of the importance of beating Michigan, calling his 7-0 mark against the Wolverines the “number one” accomplishment of his distinguished career. Over the weekend, Day got his first W over “That Team Up North.”
He helped lead the Buckeyes to a 56-27 win at Michigan Stadium. Overall, Ohio State has beaten the Wolverines the last eight times they’ve met.
Asked today if he was more relieved or happy that his team won “The Game”, Day didn’t hesitate with his honesty.
Ryan Day asked if he felt more relief or happiness after the Michigan Game: "Relief, it's not even close."
