Meyer: Big Ten has closed gap with SEC

"I don't think there's a gap at all," Meyer said Monday at Big Ten media days. "I've coached in the SEC East when that was one of the strongest in the country. And I think the Big Ten East right now is every bit as strong as I can remember the SEC East."

Urban Meyer on Michigan-Ohio State rivalry: "I'm very biased on my opinion because I grew up in it. I just think it's the greatest rivalry...in all of sport."

Tom VanHaaren ESPN Staff Writer 

Urban Meyer said he was shocked at the amount of disrespect in recruiting the Big Ten received in 2012. Says he feels a great amount of respect now in the conference. Recruiting rankings are filled with Big Ten teams and Meyer said, "That's the way it should be."

Urban Meyer said they let the loss to Clemson go. "We've been know in the past to use different forms of motivation, a loss here and there," but Ohio State let this one go. Meyer said the loss was addressed and, "Professionally, we've changed how we do some things on offense and we're moving forward."

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says Kevin Wilson is the first established offensive coordinator he's ever hired. Calls Wilson a veteran coach that has led some of the top offenses in America, so Wilson has a lot of input in the offense.
