Watch Urban Meyer’s weekly Monday press for the bye week. There were some significant nuggets today and this is the only media session seeing how there is not an opponent.

Since this is a bye week, we didn’t get the normal Monday press conference, and the other usual media opportunities aren’t really there either. So … that means the standing Tuesday Big Ten Coach’s teleconference is the only opportunity to get Meyer’s further take on things after sleeping on what occurred (or didn’t occur) Saturday night in West Lafayette.

Also, Purdue head coach had some very interesting things to say about the Buckeyes when he took his turn, and that too is updated by the Zone in the above Tweet link. You may be surprised by his comments.

Thanks as always to our friends at 105.7 The Zone in Columbus, we’ve got the complete audio above.

Here are some highlights:

  • The general theme is that there are some glaring weaknesses that are being looked at and addressed.
  • Wide receiver Austin Mack had surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot and the team is hoping to get him back for any bowl game that it’s a part of.
  • Those glaring weaknesses are the lack of running game, red zone offense, and giving up big plays on defense.
  • The coaching staff spent 12 hours trying to figure out how to use the backs better in combination with Dwayne Haskins passing prowess.
  • The locker room is still strong, and there’s a team meeting at 2:30 PM Tuesday to go over some things.
  • Meyer said that there’s no tension or division within the football program. He said there is no tension and he works with Gene Smith on an almost daily basis. There are however, things that need to be fixed.
  • Meyer said that the coaching staff is looking into how close the linebackers are playing to the line of scrimmage.
