What raises for Ryan Day and Chris Holtmann tell us about Ohio State football and basketball

On this Thursday Buckeye Talk, Doug Lesmerises looks at the raises and extensions for Ohio State football coach Ryan Day and Ohio State basketball coach Chris Holtmann announced this week, compares them to salaries for Urban Meyer, Jim Tressel and Thad Matta in the past, and tries to use the money to analyze the current state of the football and basketball programs.
First, it's the new deals for Day and Holtmann in context of each other.
Then it's a dive into Day's contract, why it happened and what it means for his future.
And then it's a look at Holtmann's extension, how it fits in the Big Ten and the nation, and what it means for how much patience AD Gene Smith may have with the basketball Buckeyes.
