Countdown to Kickoff: 43 Days

43.  Urban Meyer has coached in 43 Big Ten matchups (including two Big Ten Championship games) during his tenure at Ohio State.  He is 40-3 against conference opponents, with two losses to Michigan State and one to Penn State, by a combined 16 points.  That kind of dominance over a conference can only be rivaled by Nick Saban down in Alabama.  There are few guys out there that excel at both coaching and recruiting like Meyer does.  It seems like no matter how many top tier players leave for the NFL, another stud is ready to step up and take their place.  Even with Harbaugh taking over at Michigan, I have no reason the believe Meyer’s stranglehold over the Big 10 will end any time soon.  As long as he is at the helm the Buckeyes are always going to be in the National Championship conversation.
