COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Angry with the way his defense played in its last three games, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is urging his players to attack more and think less.
The Buckeyes held their second practice of the spring Thursday, and as will be the case throughout the 15 workouts the emphasis is on relying on instinct and playing without restraint instead of following the diagrammed play and reacting.
Ohio State surrendered an average of more than 38 points and 539 yards a game while closing out 1-2 in the most important games of 2013. With seven starters back from that unit, Meyer is demanding that, first and foremost, everyone play hard and fast.
His coaches have also been put on notice that things will be different.
