Ohio State's Urban Meyer is not like most other coaches.
Meyer says he talks to his team about its ranking as a way to gauge how far the Buckeyes have come and where they have yet to go. Ohio State (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) is up to No. 8 this week after beating ranked opponents the past two games.
With Ohio State banned from playing in a bowl, being in the Bowl Championship Series picture or even listed in the coaches' poll due to NCAA sanctions, the Associated Press Top 25 offers a bit of incentive for a team with limited time to prove itself.
