Call is superstition or just coincidence, but Ohio State head coach Ryan Day isn’t going to be shaving his beard anytime soon.
Day went with a clean-shaven face to start the season. The Buckeyes then began the year on a sour note with an underwhelming performance against Minnesota in Week 1 and loss to Oregon in Week 2.
Ohio State has improved each week since losing to the Ducks in Columbus. The Buckeyes have rattled off wins over Tulsa, Akron and Rutgers, the latter two ending in significant blowouts.
Day likes what he’s seen from his team these past few weeks. He’s goin to be keeping his beard, as a result, for now.
“It’s not going to change right now,” Day said. “I’m going to keep it going.”
Day’s beard has grown back. After Saturday’s win, he isn’t going to shave it now. “It’s not going to change right now. I’m going to keep it going.”

Ohio State will have finished the 2021 season on a strong note if Ryan Day still has his beard by then.
The Buckeyes’ 52-13 blowout win over Rutgers last Saturday was a major step in the right direction. CJ Stroud was terrific. He completed 17 of his 23 passes for 330 yards and five touchdowns.
Looking ahead, Ryan Day and the Buckeyes take on Maryland this Saturday, have a bye the following week and then play the Indiana Hoosiers on Oct. 23. At the end of the month Ohio State takes on the fourth-ranked Penn State Nittany Lions.
We’ll learn plenty about this year’s Ohio State team the rest of this month.
