Urban Meyer Updates: Intrigued With NCAA Rule Allowing Former Players To Play On Scout Team

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer met with the media Monday to recap the Maryland win and look ahead to Saturday's match-up at Michigan State.

Buckeye head coach Urban Meyer had his weekly Monday press conference as the team prepares for its final two games of the regular season. 

  • Meyer said D-line coach Larry Johnson has a nice rotation along the defensive line lately. 
  • He also said that he gave the game ball to the receivers because they have blocked tremendously the last two games. 
  • Co-Players of the game were Curtis Samuel and J.T. Barrett. 
  • Meyer said all their focus is on the Tuesday's practice. They don't want to look ahead and worry about the CFP rankings. 
  • Meyer said he thinks what separates OSU's training staff from others is that it adjusts its approach to each player. 
  • Meyer said Denzel Ward was taken out of the Maryland game for precautionary reasons.  
  • He said the coaching staff didn't know where they were going to put Sam Hubbard when he first got to Ohio State.
  • NCAA allows former college players that are not in the NFL to play on their alma mater's scout team. Meyer's response when asked it: "I did not know that. But you go me thinking."
  • On Michigan State: "They're pretty systematic in what they do."
  • He tries to find out if recruits are selfish because he wants to know if they'll do whatever they can to win the game. 
  • On Tyquan Lewis being on a leader: "I didn't know that. He is one of our top leaders."
  • Meyer said he has not even thought about the revenge factor one bit with the MSU game approaching. He said it can be a motivating factor but it just depends on the team.
