  Urban Meyer livens up the Ohio State fans in the south end of the stadium before singing Carmen Ohio. On Saturday Ohio State pulled off a late-game comeback to force overtime versus the unranked Purdue Boilermakers before ultimately winning 29-22, and did so on the shoulders of back-up quarterback Kenny Guiton after starter Braxton Miller went out in the third quarter with a scary injury. It was obviously a very emotional win for Urban Meyer and the entire team, especially considering how Miller exited and how Guiton and the offense, as well as the defense, performed down the stretch to pull out the victory. This season is about nothing else but earning twelve victories. Ohio State now has eight with four games to play. This (and every) win meant everything to Meyer and the Buckeyes. Meyer addressed that, as well as the performances of a few individuals along with the team as a whole, during his post game press conference Saturday afternoon. Here it is in its entirety, after a few notes from key points of the press conference. Meyer, during his short commentary before opening it up for questions: “Some of the efforts I saw tonight were legendary. I mean that was a moment I’ll certainly never forget, and that was that a quarterback came jogging into the game, the ol’ right-hander (Guiton), and just did a heck of a job.” “The bottom line is we’re going to build on wins and build on, uh, build on being extremely positive and coaching these kids because they do listen to you.” Meyer on whether or not he ever lost faith near the end of the game: “In overtime, I just, the energy in that stadium and how loud, that was louder than the Nebraska game and I want to thank our fans for that.” On Chris Fields: “Chris Fields is a product of, I’d like to say, our program and that means, yeah, three weeks ago he wouldn’t have been on the field.” “Very proud of him. That was a great catch.” On Kenny Guiton: “It’s a tribute to that kid. I mean he is a special guy. Even if he, and I hate say this. Even if he doesn’t complete that pass, that’s a special kid. He’s ready. He’s all Buckeye now. And that family, I’d be very proud…I know they are. What are you kidding me? Just what kind of kid he is and I’m not talking about the game winning touchdown. Just what kind of kid he is – what kind of team player.” On his level of concern when he saw Braxton’s condition out on the field during the moments after his injury: “Well he’s like my son. All these guys are. Same with (Devan) Bogard and I just have concern especially, you know, I think it’s a head and that concerns all of us so I’m going to go find out right now.” There’s also a great analogy at the end that compares the situation against Nebraska a year ago when Braxton was injured and came out compared to similar circumstances on Saturday against Purdue. Also a great story behind the two-point conversion play call to get them into overtime.
