Urban Meyer had another strong recruiting class at Ohio State, but he wants to see the rest of his competitors in the Big Ten get on a similar level.
Meyer made his comments during an appearance with âBishop & Rothmanâ on 97.1 The Fan in Columbus Thursday.
âWe do need to as a conference need to keep pushing that envelope to be better,â said Meyer.
âOur whole conversation [at the Big Ten coaches meeting] needs to be about âhow do we recruit?â When you see 11 of the SEC teams are in the top 25 thatâs something that we need to improve.â
Meyer coached in the SEC at Florida for six seasons and won two national championship there. He knows what itâs like to compete at that level, and heâs already brought success to Ohio State â he led the Buckeyes to a 12-0 season last year.
The reality is that the SEC is the top college football conference in the country. The coaches and staffs are generally the highest paid, their games are generally rated highest on TV, and the conference has produced the last seven national champions.
Iâm not sure why Meyer is trying to rally the other coaches in the conference. Is he trying to bring the Big Ten up to the SECâs level? It seems like the competition would only make his job more difficult.
