URBAN — THIS TEAM CONTINUES TO CLIMB: Urban reflected on the continued growth of the Buckeyes Monday in the wake of Saturday’s 62-3 dismantling of Nebraska: “I’ve done this a long time, and I’ve coached young teams, and this is a steady climb that we were climbing very good early in the season; we plateaued and you gotta somehow jump start it and get the climb started again in development of the players and development of the team. And I felt like obviously we plateaued, but I see what I see at practice and that’s the advantage…if I thought there was team chemistry issues and give in, then that’s — then you implode. It wasn’t that at all. It’s just coaches gotta do a better job, players gotta do a better job and they did.”
