    Gotta wait until all our players opt out and sign agents I guess... we might want to exit this shitshow of a conference regardless of whether we start in October or not.

    With no season scheduled, Ohio State is limited to 12 hours per week to work with the current players.

    “During that 12 hours, we are allowed to go on to the field and use a football,” he said. “But we’re not allowed to wear shoulder pads. We can wear helmets. It’s hard. That 12 hours encompasses meetings, work in the weight room and conditioning.

    “It’s not like a typical work week, where we would have 20 hours during the season. We are eight hours short and we’re not able to wear pads.”

    The uncertainty of when or if the season might begin makes it difficult, Day said.

    “We live in a routine and that routine is built around the next thing, whether it’s the next game or the next target,” Day said. “Whether it’s spring ball or preseason camp, they come in segments. Not knowing what is next is something that everybody involved in the program is not used to.

    “That has been a challenge not knowing what is next and not fitting into a routine. We’ve had to constantly change that routine.”

    With roughly 13 new starters expected between both sides of the ball, Day said the preparation for the next season – whenever it may be – has been largely mental.

    “The hardest part is we haven’t practiced with full pads really since Clemson,” he said. “We haven’t been on the field. The coaching with watching film and communicating their responsibilities – even though we haven’t been able to body rep it – has been a challenge for us.”

    Day was asked about the challenge of recruiting during a pandemic and an NCAA-mandated dead period with no recruit visits allowed to college campuses.

    “We’re able to stay in contact with a lot of the recruits,” the coach said. “Some of the recruits are not having a season, either, so they’re able to share in some of the things they are doing. Some of them do. We’re continuing with the Zoom calls and the communication. We’re not allowed to have them on campus. It’s still dead. They are anxious to get on campus, but until that opens up we will continue to use Zoom calls, phone calls and teleconferences to keep the lines of communication open.

    “You continue to build those relationships even though it’s virtually."

    Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports appeared on Big Ten Network on Monday night to give the latest on what he is hearing regarding the conference's pending vote of whether to begin playing football as early as next month.

    “Here’s how I’m looking at how the Big Ten’s presidents and chancellors approach the next step here," Thamel said. "Obviously, when this decision was first made, it was seemingly made in a rush and it was not communicated well. So, they are not going to make that mistake again if they do decide to come back.

    “I would say the general sentiments remains optimism that the Big Ten will play this fall and will attempt to play at some point in October, with October 17th still targeted as the preferred date to try and attempt to get things going. The sentiment of optimism has not changed. Will the timeline change? Perhaps. The Big Ten needs to get this right and they need to message it right. You’re talking about a new commissioner (Kevin Warren); he’s only been there less than a year. Five of your 14 presidents are new and they have trillion-dollar ed-businesses that they are trying to oversee. And because five of the 14 are new and they clearly felt blowback at many campuses from the initial decision, they are going to make sure that things like testing, things like contact tracing are there, and that the Big Ten can definitively say, ‘This are why things are decisively different than they were a month ago.’

    “If there’s one definitive difference from August 11th — when the decision was first made (to cancel the fall season) — it is the accessibility and the availability of daily rapid testing. To me, daily rapid testing is going to be the key to all of this, and it’s how the Big Ten can explain why they didn’t think it was safe a month ago, and then seemingly being on the cusp of saying it’s safe to play now.”

    Thamel was asked if the Big Ten does begin its season on October 17 if that would give teams in the conference enough games on their resume to be part of the College Football Playoff discussion.

    "Yes, because I believe that gives you eight games and a bye week and a December 19th Big Ten title game," Thamel said. "So, if you can play the Big Ten title game -- which by the way is a huge financial component and a big part of the television package -- if you can squeeze in a season and have a champion, I cannot fathom that the College Football Playoff would not wait to accommodate the Big Ten."

    Getting so anxious I can’t even read articles that are more than a paragraph. Maybe irritated is a better word.
