In the wake of the Northwestern University hazing scandal, Ohio State Head Coach Ryan Day has emphasized maintaining a positive culture within his own football program. The scandal pushed Day to examine his team closely to ensure similar events were not transpiring in Columbus.

Day’s response, shared during Big Ten Media Days, was both swift and assertive, highlighting the proactive attitude of his leadership style. He convened a staff meeting immediately following news of the scandal, setting a tone of seriousness and a clear message that such behavior is unacceptable.

He has stressed the necessity of transparency and communication within his program. He expects any potential issues to be brought to his attention promptly to be addressed in the right manner.

Day continues to reinforce talks about positive team culture and respect amongst his young footballers. He strives to ensure that his staff and players are well-equipped to prevent such incidents and uphold Ohio State’s integrity in college athletics.

While his focus remains on upholding the positive culture at Ohio State, Day also keeps his eye on the prize. The Buckeye’s continue to work towards their goal of making it into the national championship.

Ohio State, despite its strong lineup, has suffered two consecutive losses to Michigan and has not won the National Championship since 2014, though.
