COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State coach Urban Meyer met with the media on Wednesday night and discussed a number of items leading up to the Buckeyes’ second home game of the 2016 season, Saturday’s tilt versus Tulsa.
The Buckeyes head coach talked about:
- Going to see Malik Hooker play basketball in college and being impressed by his athleticism.
- How Ezekiel Elliott was not a good basketball player.
- Joe Burrow’s toughness, but he was clear that right now there’s no comparison between Burrow and J.T. Barrett.
- Dwayne Haskins, Austin Mack and others hitting the “wall” as freshmen.
- Meyer said Corey Smith was hampered by a slight hamstring issue in Week 1.
Ohio State takes on Tulsa on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
