Urban Meyer didn’t mince words in the aftermath of last night’s 31-16 loss to Oklahoma, “It was awful…We got beat by a good team, a very good team and a quarterback that was dynamic. I thought our defense hung in there against a very good player. Our offense was bad. So we’re going to do what we do and that’s go back to work as hard as we possibly can, starting somewhat tonight and tomorrow and figure this thing out.”
The Buckeyes will have time to work out the kinks in the passing defense before facing another air attack, taking on Army next week — a team that has passed for 17 yards in two games.
