Ohio State Facing Odd Challenge of Learning From Blowouts to Avoid Stagnation

Standing in the back corner of the jam-packed visiting team’s media room at Ryan Field after Ohio State walloped Northwestern, sports information director Jerry Emig told the gathered media that after fielding eight minutes of questions, Ryan Day only had time for one more. Day’s wife, Nina, was waiting for him outside, and he needed to get back to the locker room.

Day answered one final question about contributions from younger players in the second half of the game before wrapping his press conference up and squeezing his way through the jumbled mess of cameras, reporters and wires to greet Nina.
