Buckeye Coaches Express Mixed Emotions Of Team's Performance
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer and his staff have mixed emotions about the Buckeyes right now.
Meyer assessed his offense as playing one of its best games in a while. Carlos Hyde, Braxton Miller, Corey Brown and the line were outstanding, particularly in the second half when the fourth-ranked Buckeyes came back to beat Iowa 34-24.
At the same time, the Buckeyes are troubled by a lethargic start and by how their defense got pushed around.
So as Ohio State (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) prepares for Saturday night's game against Penn State (4-2, 1-1), Meyer is trying to embrace and encourage an offense that has been nearly unstoppable while patching up and picking up a defense that is getting gashed for 26 points a game in conference play.
