Jim Tressel believes the future of Ohio State football is in good hands with Ryan Day as its head coach: “I'm a Ryan Day fan.”

The head coach of Ohio State football works in a fish bowl. That's how it has been, how it is and how it always will be.

Day's first years as head coach were chock-full of highs, as Ohio State secured two Big Ten titles, two trips to the College Football Playoff and a national runner-up finish in 2019 and 2020. Because the lows are the most recent experience surrounding Day's time as head coach of the Buckeyes, some fans of the program have recently expressed their displeasure with his performance in the role. However, there remain plenty who approve of Day and what he has built in Columbus, and former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel is among them., Tressel offered a vote of confidence in Day's leadership while speaking to the Hall of Fame Luncheon Club in Canton, Ohio, on Monday.

As Tressel continued to make his stance on the transfer portal, he talked about the value of “fighting through tough times” and facing adversity, something Tressel believes college football players could learn from today.

I love LOVE Coach Tressel, with that said, Ryan Day has 2 strikes as far as I’m concerned.

Means he’s laughing

Would like to see Coach Tressel for Ohio State Athletic Director or Ohio State president. Understands NIL and will support Coach Day and not thwart him every chance he gets like OSU_AD. Time for a change.

gotta get him in as AD if Smith takes the big 10 commish job

TheFoundation1_ So am iI.

They're doing well. The play calling on that last drive was questionable. They took their 'pedal to the metal' mindset off, and played for the last field goal. Aggression worked. Should've stayed with it.

Who isn't?

I hate to tell ya its not the man hasnt won a big game for us YET i his career and has more losses to Michigan than we would like to see

i also believe this. i am also a ryan day fan

Not losing to Michigan twice

Use my like button as the Tressel for AD button.

Love Tress!

Thanks Jim, but we don't care what you are the only coach in OSU history to get OSU put on a year suspension. You were always banned from the NCAA.....

Totally agree!!

If he says it, I believe it.

yeah, no thanks.

Jim Tressel never lost to Michigan twice.

That makes one of us
