How will the Buckeyes fare in their first season under Urban Meyer?

The Ohio State Buckeyes are shifting their focus from training to game preparation with less than two weeks until their season-opener against Miami (OH).

Despite Coach Urban Meyer's intense training camp and an extremely hot summer, the Buckeyes have managed to avoid any serious injuries. The only exception is running back Jordan Hall, who hurt himself stepping on some glass before camp began, requiring surgery.

When asked about their good fortune so far, Meyer quickly knocked on the wooden podium and called it, "Unbelievable, the way we've practiced." He went on to say, "The only thing I worry about is health and the heat...We try to push them as hard as we can."

Meyer will try to get the Buckeyes off to a quick start. In six seasons at the University of Florida, Urban Meyer and the Gators were 23-1 in their first four games of the season.
