Ohio State has already pre-sold over 47,000 tickets to their spring game on Saturday, and Urban Meyer is more than ready to finally hit the field.
"I’ve been fortunate enough to coach in some of these big spring game atmospheres, and there’s nothing like it. It’s priceless. You can’t simulate this atmosphere in any indoor venue or out on the practice field." he told the media yesterday after practice.
Meyer anticipates a lot of passing during the spring game, although he's still not sure who will be on the receiving end of those balls. “The ball will be thrown a lot. I just don’t know if it will be caught.”
Offensive coordinator Tom Herman will serve as the head coach for the Scarlet team and defensive coordinator Luke Fickell will handle the coaching duties for the Gray team.
Keeping with the competitive mindset in everything they've done since Urban arrived in Columbus, the losing team will be putting in some extra work next Friday on a community service project. That project might just be doing three hours worth of landscaping at Buckeye Grove, just south of the stadium.
