Podcast: Ryan Day sounds like a future head coach ahead of Oregon State

Matt and Alexis join the #FreeDemario movement, and Matt makes some bold predictions.

NCAA Football: Ohio State at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

In the last preseason episode of the “Why is this News?” edition of the “Hangout in the Holy Land” podcast, co-hosts Matt Tamanini and Alexis Chassen catch up on all of the biggest Buckeye stories that have broken since Monday’s episode.

They first discuss how impressive interim head coach Ryan Day was in his first press conference in his new, temporary role on Monday. The pair agree that Day’s presser responses were refreshingly free of “coach speak,” and Matt offers a hot tepid take that Urban Meyer will not complete his current contract, and will be replaced by Day as OSU’s head coach.

The pair also discusses the newly released football schedules through 2025, the Week 1 Ohio State depth chart, and a really fun article that the Land-Grant Holy Land staff put together going from A to Z give you all of the info you need to get ready for the season.

They both stan for Demario McCall and Robert “Big Bob” Landers, and finally, they close out the show arguing about the pronunciation of the word “gif,” going over their OSU vs. OSU score for Saturday, and Matt reveals his bold— likely to be wrong— prediction about Tate Martell’s 2019 status at Ohio State.
