Q. I know you love Kenny Guiton. But 47 seconds left, 61 yards, no timeouts, backup quarterback, what are the odds of that?
COACH MEYER: I knew it from no. (Laughter) did I know that was going to happen? How much time was left?
Q. 47 seconds.
COACH MEYER: 47 seconds, no timeouts. I just can’t say enough about it. But it’s kind of recurring theme every time we bring up his name.
It’s the same thing as a coach. He prepares. We call it competitive excellence. Competitive excellence is simply when you work so hard, when your number’s called, because of so many reps you can make a play. It’s just a tribute to that kid. He’s a special guy. I hate to say this but even if he doesn’t complete that pass that’s a special kid. He’s all Buckeye now. That family ought to be very proud. I know they are are you kidding me? Just what kind of kid he is. And I’m not talking about the game winning touchdown. Just what kind of kid he is, what kind of team player.
