A Wednesday article from the Plain Dealer's Doug Lesmerises said that Meyer was fielding questions about a 12-0 season as soon as the depth chart came out:

There's always the chance that Meyer's sly grin was masking a you-never-know attitude, but the more reasonable interpretation, especially when coupled with a look at a two-deep that brought few surprises, is that 12-0 talk is, obviously, nuts. But you probably can't throw a Buckeye in a crowded room in this state without hitting a fan who believes it.

But what we saw Wednesday was a 9-3 two-deep.

"Talent will get you about seven, eight wins," Meyer said. "Discipline pushes it to nine wins, maybe. Then when you get leadership, that's when magic starts happening."

Meyer also said that the receiving corps is "not functional" and that the passing game is "not very good right now." But he added that there is enough talent to pull things together by fall.

OSU's season kicks off Sept. 1 against Miami (OH).
