COLUMBUS, Ohio - Four months ago the Buckeyes named Urban Meyer head coach of the Ohio State football program and a lot has gone on behind the scenes between that announcement and the start of Spring Practice on Wednesday afternoon.
The Bucks are coming off of a 6-7 season last year and even though they will not be able to play in the postseason in 2012, there is nothing but sky high expectations around this program and most of them are coming from within the program itself. Meyer did not come in just for a 'mulligan' season and despite being the first practice of the season there seemed to be an extra spring in the step of the coaches and team.
We were there to take in the first practice and will have plenty of coverage of what we saw during the first two-plus hours of practice but there is nobody better to break down how things went down with than the head coach himself. Here are all of his post practice statements in their entirety.
