Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer got exactly what he wanted at Ohio State's spring game Saturday, 100,000 fans in attendance.
The official announced attendance for the spring game was 100,189, topping the national record for a spring game that the Buckeyes set last year with 99,391 in attendance. That's not just a point of pride for Meyer and the university, however, as Meyer reiterated that seeing how his young players react to such a large crowd holds real value for the development of the team.
"Really grateful for some people who really helped us watching Parris Campbells, and Joe Burrows and Jerome Bakers, and Dre'Mont Jones play in front of 100,000 people," Meyer said in his post game comments.
"Extremely proud of where we're at as a program," the head coach continued. "They're young. We won't win a lot of games right now, but we don't have to yet, but very pleased with where we're at tight now."
Meyer went on to address the expectation at Ohio State -- one that is not diminished despite the departure of many stars -- how nice it was to see former players on the sideline, the performance young players like Joe Burrow, Torrance Gibson and Mike Weber and the development of the defensive line.
