Let’s be honest: We all love the Ohio State Buckeyes and look forward to Saturdays during football season. But when it comes to playing Rutgers, it’s tough to get excited for and amped about. Yeah, we still get to watch the scarlet and gray on the gridiron, but this Saturday’s game will likely be an even bigger blowout than in years past.
Even though it’s a tough one to get excited about and ready for, Ohio State’s video and graphics team is here to save the day with yet another fantastic game trailer once again.
“So right now here is an opportunity,” Day tells his players and coaching staff. “Right now is one of those times in your life where you have an opportunity to do something special. There’s going to be times in your life where this is gonna happen. The stars aren’t going to align. It just ain’t going to work that way. But right now, we have something that’s special. We have an opportunity that’s in front of us right now. We control our destiny. And I’d like to sit here and tell you that it’s going to take some magical recipe, but you know what it comes down to is everything we’ve built to this point. The chemistry. The love for each other. The comradery. Everything you guys have built. It’s our toughness against their toughness. It’s our team against their team. It’s our culture against their culture. That’s what we’re fighting for every day.”
Ohio State sure won’t take Rutgers lightly, as Day’s comments make that seem obvious, but if the backups aren’t in the game to start the second half, it will be quite a disappointment. Heck, we could even argue that the Buckeyes’ second-stringers could beat the Scarlet Knights and it wouldn’t even be that much of a longshot.
With a video filled with Day pumping up the team and coaches, highlights from some of the top plays throughout the first nine games of the season, and even some behind-the-scenes shots as well, it’s an outstanding trailer nonetheless. With Heisman candidates, future NFL first-round picks, and some of the best coaches in college football, it’s easy to take this team for granted. Don’t allow that to happen. Enjoy Saturday’s game, even if it is a blowout.
The Buckeyes and Scarlet Knights kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET in Piscataway, New Jersey Saturday afternoon.
