Each week all the coaches in the Big Ten take turns providing an update on their respective programs. As usual, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer took his turn today as well to discuss the program prior to the pivotal matchup with Michigan State.

If you missed it, we’ve got the entire audio courtesy of our friends at 105.7 The Zone in Columbus in the above Tweet link.

Here are some highlights from the call:

  • Meyer addressed playing time at safety. Jordan Fuller will play as usual once he gets eligible from the targeting suspension in the second half, but Brendon White will get playing time based on his performance last week. He’ll probably start but Josh Proctor and Shaun Wade will also get playing time.
  • A question was asked about what jumps out about Michigan State on film. Meyer singled out the penetration that the defensive line gets as one of the things that’s obvious on tape.
  • The defense is getting healthy and Meyer feels better about the improvement being made on that side of the ball.
  • Meyer is hoping for more younger players to emerge from the last two highly touted recruiting classes.
  • Offensive lineman Wyatt Davis was singled out as one of the younger guys making an impact and he deserves more time.
  • An updated was requested on Tate Martell. Meyer said that he’s an elite competitor and he wants to play and is even a little frustrated. The conversations are ongoing about how to get him involved going forward.
  • Tight end Jeremy Ruckert is coming along with his blocking, and the coaching staff is hoping for more impact from him because of his pass catching ability.
  • It’s tough to win in the The Big Ten on the road and Meyer said the conference is one of the best if not the best in the country. He prepares the kids as best as they can to walk into some of the venues in the league.
