URBAN: ‘IT HAPPENED, MOVE ON’ — At Monday’s press conference with reporters, Urban noted that major changes weren’t coming, and it was time to regroup and move on from Saturday night’s loss: “I don’t think we played our best game. Conversations about any personnel changes usually go on today. I don’t foresee that. But we need to improve…Incredible leadership on our team. And move forward. Let it hurt for a while. And you lose a game, you’re not a loser. If you lose a game, you accept it. That’s the message to our players. We work so hard so that doesn’t happen. It happened; move on. Get ready for a very good team coming in here.” Ohio State is a 25.5 point favorite against Northwestern.
