In the video at the top of the page, you can hear what Ryan Day said during a short interview with ESPN’s Maria Taylor when the Buckies arrived in New Orleans.
When asked if Ohio would return all of its starts for a Friday night match, Day did not respond directly – instead, indicating that players who had been allowed to make the trip might not be allowed to play yet due to the Big Ten 17 game today protocol. – But he said, „The plane is a little fuller than it was a week ago.“
While Buckeyes, who completed the last round of COVID-19 testing before the match, will not be sightseeing around New Orleans as they usually do during a trip to the Sugar Bowl – Ohio is scheduled to go straight to her hotel after a tour of the Superdome Thursday evening, And stay there until he heads to the field on Friday evening – today he wants them to enjoy the CFP gaming experience they’ve had.
„They have to enjoy it,“ said Dai. „They worked hard to get back to this place where they really wanted to be … They’ll work hard tonight, and have great preparations … but at the end of the day, it will turn out to be someone who does better.“
