Urban Meyer Says Maybe The Worst Aspect Of The VT Loss Is Having To Keep 'Talking About The Damn Thing'

This week has been unchartered territory for Urban Meyer. For the first time since the 50-year-old took over the Buckeyes' program, his Ohio State team is coming off a loss in the regular season. 

Meyer began his tenure in Columbus with 24 consecutive regular season wins, but that streak was ended last Saturday when the Buckeyes fell to Virginia Tech, 35-21. 

There are many bad aspects of dealing with a loss. On his weekly radio show with Columbus' 97.1 The Fan, Meyer said maybe the worst aspect is having to continue to keep talking about the defeat. He wants to move forward.

No coach wants to deal with, or talk about, a loss. Meyer has a young, promising team and he clearly wants his players to focus on what's ahead than dwell on what happened against the Hokies. Can the Buckeyes rebound from the defeat? 

Ohio State has a chance to do that this weekend. The Buckeyes host Kent State at 12 p.m. E.T. in Columbus. The contest will be televised by ABC/ESPN2.
