COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Ohio State coach Urban Meyer hates having to defend the performance of his ninth-ranked Buckeyes, who still have a shot at winning the Big Ten and the national championship heading into Saturday's game at Maryland.
Meyer bristles at those who claim this team has underachieved. Yet, he understands that this is what happens when greatness is the norm.
"First of all, it's a product of Ohio State," said Meyer, who owns a gaudy 79-9 record with the Buckeyes. "You know, it's a product of the top programs in America."
