Two-Minute Drill: Meyer Getting Two QBs Ready for Penn State
By Brandon Castel
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is still dealing with a sore neck from his hard crash to the Turf on Saturday, but OSU head coach Urban Meyer expects him to practice today.
Miller will not take any contact, which is typical for the quarterbacks at Ohio State, but Meyer also said he plans to have backup Kenny Guiton ready to play on Saturday as well when the Buckeyes travel to Penn State.
Here’s a rundown of what Meyer had to say during his appearance on the weekly Big Ten Football Teleconference Tuesday.
Meyer on Braxton
* Meyer said Braxton Miller is really sore in his neck, but he's good to go for practice today. No contact for him, as usual.
* Meyer said he hopped in a police car and went straight from his post-game presser to the hospital to be with Braxton after the game.
* Meyer said they will get both Braxton Miller and Kenny Guiton ready to play for Saturday's game at PSU.
* Meyer said he knew last year watching Braxton that his skill set would fit perfectly with his offense. Wasn't until he got to Ohio State that Meyer found out what kind of kid and competitor Braxton is.
Meyer on Penn State
* Meyer said he has great respect for Penn State's defensive line every year. Said Bill O'Brien doing a great job with their offense.
* Meyer's biggest concern with PSU's no-huddle offense is QB Matt McGloin's ability to get them into the right call.
Meyer on the Buckeyes
* Meyer said he's very proud of the way his guys finished the game against a talented Purdue team.
* Meyer said his offense has consistency issues because they don't have enough guys who create matchups issues.
* Meyer was asked about his health. Said he's doing great. He's taking care of himself and taking his medicine for the esophageal spasms.
* Meyer said Jeff Heuerman is probably the best blocking tight end he's ever had in his coaching career. Said Heuerman's pass-catching ability has really come on this fall. Wasn't very good in the spring.
* Meyer said over-confidence is not a problem with this team coming off the overtime win against Purdue.
