Urban Meyer is currently speaking at his first weekly press conference of the 2018 college football season.

Meyer, who was suspended for the first three games of the year as a result of Ohio State's investigation into the Zach Smith saga, can return to the sideline this weekend. The Buckeyes are hosting Tulane on Saturday.

The Ohio State head coach has discussed a number of things in this afternoon's press conference, but he made one thing very clear - his love for the school has not wavered throughout this process.

"My love for Ohio State is unwavering, never more so now," Meyer said.

Meyer said his relationship with Ohio State's athletic director is still great, too.

"I'm as close to [athletic director] Gene Smith as anybody," Meyer added.

Ohio State and Tulane are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. on BTN.
