Looking forward to Ryan Day's first season program as Head Coach of the Ohio State - Eleven Warriors

With the grueling 2019 program of Ohio State, Ryan Day will not be able to adapt to his first season as head coach.

The Buckeyes of next year will face a tough list, and the nine-match conference lineup will not favor them. There is not a non-titanic match match, but overall, the program includes six teams that are playing bowling this December and January.

Here is a quick breakdown of what day and Ohio State take on next year.

Florida Atlantic

The first match of the day will force him to a coaching match with Lane Kiffin, e long last, the real reason why Urban Meyer retired is revealed. He was scared.

After a surprising 11-3 campaign in 2017, Kiffin and the Owls are back on the ground this season, going 5-7 and losing four of the last six. The FAU played two teams ranked this fall (Oklahoma and UCF) and lost both with an average of five touchdowns.

Cincinnati

Past and present will clash in the second week when Luke Fickell will lead to Columbus his unstoppable team from Cincinnati.

It is not a selection match like Texas, USC or TCU, but the Bearcats will present a legitimate initial test. Fickell's team showed tremendous growth in their second season, going 10-2 and earning a World Cup match with Virginia Tech.

Cincinatti will have his two-year-old quarterback Desmond Ridder and one over 1100 yards, 17-touchback tailback in Michael Warren to challenge a resolute defense of the Buckeyes.

@ Indiana

Indiana had to be better than this season. The Hoosiers were 4-1 when they came to Columbus to challenge the Buckeyes, and after falling from 49 to 26, they lost six of their last seven games and failed to qualify.

This match will be the first road game of the season for Ohio State.

Miami (OH)

There are some games that mean more than others. This game, however, means no more than any other.

The Buckeyes will complete their unexpected non-conference program with what is set to be a noon against a MAC team that has not finished a season better than .500 since 2010.

when College Gameday arrives in the city for this, here he hopes to have Urban Meyer as a selector of famous guests.

@ Nebraska

If Scott Frost continues the momentum of his Lincoln reconstruction, this should be one of the funniest games of the season.

Frost's first year at the helm of his alma mater could have been easier, but injuries and friction ruined every possibility. The Cornhuskers have lost their first six games of the season, but have gathered in the second half of the season to put together four victories. During that stretch, Nebraska gave Ohio a clash in the Ohio Stadium, but eventually fell 36-31.

State of Michigan

The state of Michigan could not avenge the worst loss that Mark Dantonio had ever suffered as a coach in East Lansing.

The Buckeyes drilled the Spartans in 2017, eliminating their frustrations from Iowa upset in a 48-3 rout. These are the types of losses from which Dantonio recovers, but the Buckeyes have invaded the Spartan Stadium and came out with a 26-6 victory last month.

@ Northwestern

A rematch of the Big Ten title will come to Evanston after the first of Ohio State's two end-of-season falls. And the last time the Buckeyes have traveled to play Chicago's Big Ten School, he was a banger.

Scott Van Pelt from ESPN still refers to this game as one of the wildest covers in history, and he is right. And rest assured there will be dozens of Wildcat fans hoping for a different result next year.

Wisconsin

The Buckeyes did not have much luck in their cross-division matchups this year, while they designed Nebraska, Northwestern and Wisconsin. These three teams should compete for the West Division title.

Fortunately for the state of Ohio, it avoids the most hostile environment of the three. Camp Randall has always shown a tough spot for the Buckeyes, but Wisconsin has not won in the Ohio stadium since 2004.

Maryland

Outside of Rutgers, the state of Ohio has not beaten a Big Ten team as well as Maryland did in view of this year's match. In the four 2014-2017 matchups, the Buckeyes beat the Terrapins by an average of almost 40 points per game.

That narrative was turned upside down a few weeks ago, when Maryland pushed Ohio State to work overtime in one of the wildest games of the season. The Buckeyes survived 52-51 thanks to that wandering shot at a receiver wide open on a two-point attempt.

When Maryland will visit Ohio Stadium next November, it will be commanded by new coach Mike Locksley.

@ Rutgers

The Big Ten punching bag will serve as the final setup of the state of Ohio before the very important closing of the season.

The Buckeyes have absolutely handled the Scarlet Knights in their five matches, winning each race with a combined score of 271-27. Rutgers has only won seven Big Ten games since he entered the league in 2014, and despite the diminishing returns with Chris Ash as head coach, the former Ohio State defensive coordinator was assigned another year to the program.

Penn State

After a two-year break, the Big Ten has returned to its method of programming an absolute bonkers game for the state of Ohio just before the Michigan week.

In 2015 and 2016, the Buckeyes had to face rivals in consecutive weeks to close the season. Those matchups came against the Michigan State playoff contender. The Buckeyes will face rival Penn State next year (and 2021).

The state of Ohio has won the last two matches dramatically, coming from behind the fashion. If the game next year is remotely interesting, the Buckeyes could enter the week of Michigan run out of gas.

@ Michigan

This is boys. This is the year when Michigan does the dangerous thing. Or at least, that's what everyone will say when Day brings the Ohio State team to the north for the regular season finale.

Although 2018 was supposed to be the year of Jim Harbaugh and Michigan, Ohio State flipped through the screenplay historically, hanging 62 points from the first position defense in a convincing 23-point win that was not so nearby.

With the disappearance of Meyer, Harbaugh absolutely has to win a win against the Buckeyes, at home, in 2019. But if he does not succeed, the first season of Day as head of the Ohio State will be a success regardless of what happens in the previous 11 games.
