URBAN ON WISCONSIN — “ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS IN AMERICA”
By Jim Baird | AM Football Briefing
URBAN ON WISCONSIN — “ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS IN AMERICA”: Coach Meyer has been impressed with what he’s seen by the Badgers on tape, “I think Coach Chryst — I don’t know him very well, but I can push play and see it’s one of the best coached teams in the United States of America. Very good players. They have their niche. Average size is 6’6″ or 6’8″ on the offensive line, 315 pounds. I think that’s what it was two years ago, and it’s just consistent. They have an excellent running back, very efficient pass game. And then on defense, they’re outstanding. They’re what they’ve been. It’s amazing that they’ve had coach transition. They’ve changed defensive coordinators and it’s a very similar defense. It’s Wisconsin’s defense. I like that. I like the fact that we change coordinators on offense, it’s Ohio State’s offense, so Wisconsin you’ve got to give the leadership a lot of credit. One of the best teams in America.” Bill Landis with the full press conference transcript. Ohio State is a 10.5 point favorite in Madison.
