Two days after Ohio State fell to Oklahoma, 31-16, on Saturday night, Buckeye head coach Urban Meyer met with the media on Monday to discuss the loss as well as other topics. Below are takeaways from his press conference. Meyer said after suffering a couple of losses (Oklahoma and Clemson in 2016) lately, there are three levels the team endures: devastated, to crushed to pissed. He said the team is between the second and third levels. Meyer said "head coaches can screw up things worse than they are," when they intervene in the play calling during the game. The head coach said “it’s not even a question” that quarterback J.T. Barrett gives Ohio State the best chance to win. Meyer said offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson "will continue to have the opportunity" to "enhance" the offense. Meyer said "the secondary did not play well" against Oklahoma. Meyer said lot of defensive problems stemmed from guys trying to do others' jobs and then getting victimized as a result. The head coach noted that opposing defenses constantly evolving has caused the Ohio State offense problems.
